Technique for Orthotopic Rat Liver Transplantation

  • R. Engemann

Abstract

After the introduction of microvascular suture techniques by Lee and Fisher in 1961, it took more than a decade of microsurgical pioneer work before a technique for orthotopic rat liver transplantation could be presented (Lee et al. 1973). This technique, however, required a portosystemic shunt and was a difficult operation. To my knowledge, nobody, except its inventors, was able to reproduce the results.
