Postmortem pump-driven reperfusion of the vascular system of porcine lungs: towards a new model for surgical training

Published inEuropean Surgical Research, vol. 52, no. 1-2, p. 8-20
Publication date2014
Abstract

The objective of this experiment is to establish a continuous postmortem circulation in the vascular system of porcine lungs and to evaluate the pulmonary distribution of the perfusate. This research is performed in the bigger scope of a revascularization project of Thiel embalmed specimens. This technique enables teaching anatomy, practicing surgical procedures and doing research under lifelike circumstances.
