During the last two decades microsurgery has progressively taken
the place of macrosurgery since it largely improves the experimental
models in liver research. This is a concise but comprehensive book
focusing on key issues in microsurgical techniques for liver research.
The book has been written for medical, biological, veterinary and
pharmaceutical researchers and advanced students who wish to develop
experimental models of liver diseases by using microsurgery. The
book is organized in twelve chapters in which the basic and applied
aspects of experimental liver surgery are included. Many illustrations
are given to reproduce each microtechnique which should particularly
useful to the readers.
