Carotid artery exteriorization for percutaneous catheterization in sheep and dogs

Carotid artery exteriorization for percutaneous catheterization in sheep and dogs

American Journal of Veterinary Research 43(5): 898-901

Summary and reliable physiologic or pharmacological investigation in animal models often requires arterial catheterization in awake animals. This can be facilitated by surgical exteriorization of the carotid artery for subsequent percutaneous catheterization. A simplified surgical procedure is described that was demonstrated to have limited morbidity and excellent applicability for multiple use, as well as to ensure high blood flow rates when needed. The surgical technique involves transfer of the carotid artery from a deep paratracheal position to a ventrolateral neck subcutaneous position, protected from the underlying mattress sutures by the sternomastoid muscle.
