  • bilateral canine knee reconstruction

    I have submitted an IACUC proposal that calls for bilateral canine acl
    One limb will be treated and the other will serve as a control. The
    commitee is balking
    at the bilateral surgery, despite plans for adequate pain control.

    I have searched the literature for articles that discuss bilateral surgery
    in the canine mode
    and have had modest success.

    I would appreciate more citations to support my proposal. I would also
    appreciate opinions
    regarding this topic. Obviously, there is a greater emotional attachment
    to canines than
    most other animal model subjects. However, another way to look at this is
    to consider that more
    canine subjects will be required if the contralateral limb cannot serve as
    a control

    I appreciate your reponses.
