Surgical procedures are described for chronic cannulation of portal vein, ileal vein, abdominal aorta, and carotid artery in pigs. Silastic or Micro-Renathane tubing was used for cannulating portal vein and ileal vein, while carotid artery was cannulated with Micro-Renathane tubing. The lumen of Micro-Renathane tubing was coated with tri-dodecylmethyl ammonium chloride (TDMAC)-heparin complex. The abdominal aorta was cannulated via saphenous artery with vinyl tubing. This allows simultaneous… CONTINUE READING
