The Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI) is proud to announce their participation in the 2010 AALAS Texas Branch Annual Meeting. VBI collaborated on a workshop with Marcel Perret-Gentil, DVM, MS, from the University of Texas. The subject of the workshop, “Principles of Suturing” was so popular, that there were two identical sessions conducted to accommodate the overwhelming demand. During this workshop, participants learned the anatomy of the skin and principles of healing. Participants also learned basic principles or had the opportunity to advance their skills with needle and suture selection, knot tying, suture pattern techniques, skin stapling, and the application of adhesives. In addition, proper instrument selection, usage and handling were demonstrated. Techniques taught at this workshop can be applied to rodents as well as multiple other species.
