INTRODUCTION To describe an animal model of growth restriction based on selective ligature of uteroplacental vessels in the pregnant rabbit. MATERIAL AND METHODS Two experimental protocols (+21 and +25 days of gestation) with three groups were defined: controls, mild (20-30%) and severe (40-50%) uteroplacental vessel ligature.
