Structural Changes of the Urinary Bladder After Chronic Complete Spinal Cord Injury in Minipigs International Neurourology Journal. | Pubmed ID: 28361517 The aim of this study was to determine the structural changes of the urinary bladder after chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) in minipigs with the primary focus on the analysis of urinary bladder wall proteins and their quantitative distribution.
A New Technique for Minimal Invasive Complete Spinal Cord Injury in Minipigs Acta Neurochirurgica. | Pubmed ID: 29330575 The aim of this study was to develop a minimal invasive complete spinal cord injury (SCI) minipig model for future research applications. The minipig is considered a translationally relevant model for SCI research. However, a standardized minimal invasive complete SCI model for pigs has not yet been established.
