Microsurgery and In Vivo Functionality
Microsurgery includes transaortic constriction (TAC or AAB), myocardial ischemia (left anterior descending or LAD occlusion) and other possible cardiovascular surgeries. Implantable sensors are utilized to sense, process and relay information about in vivo cardiac functionality. Measurements include pressure-volume loops (P-V loops), rates of contraction and relaxation, and ECG in small animal models.
This service is provided in collaboration with the University of Michigan, Physiology Phenotyping Core (PPC).
Microsurgery services are now available. Please contact Steve Whitesall for more information.
