Surgical Support

Continuous infusion studies with durations of 14 days or longer require implanted, indwelling access, regardless of species.  Implanted ports or catheters are also recommended for intermittent infusion studies requiring a high frequency of dosing. 

It is difficult, if not impossible, to maintain the skilled surgical staff necessary to perform these procedures without regular training or hands-on practice. SAI’s experienced surgeons offer surgical consulting and practical training to ensure your animals are successfully instrumented and maintained for the duration of the infusion.
