Abstract

There are several fixative solutions to preserve corpses for surgical use and lots of them uses formalin. The objective of this research was to determine, in dog corpses, the best fixative period in ethylic alcohol (EA) and preservation in sodium chloride aqueous solution 30% (SCAS 30%), aiming the arterial micro-surgical training. Corpses of five groups (G1 to G5) were fixed with EA, and put in boxes containing EA for 30 (G2), 60 (G3), 90 (G4) or 120 days (G5). After that, each group was preserved in SCAS 30% for 120 days. The control group (G1) was composed of corpses without fixation/ preservation. At the end of each period, two fragments of common carotidartery per corpse were collected, for traction test. Immediately after the collection, the femoral arteries were evaluated (by 2 people) regarding the suture quality in binocular surgical microscope, and attributed scores from 0 (bad) to 5 (excelente), regarding the fresh samples. Although, ethylic alcohol has been used as fixative, there were few changes regarding the traction tests in the common carotid arteries. Regarding the conservation in SCAS 30%, there were changes in relation to the control group at 60 and 90 days of conservation in saline solution, but not at 30 and 120 days. As the score at the 30 days group was higher than the 120 days group, we considered G2 (30 days fixation and conservation group) the best group for arterial surgery practice.

Keywords: anatomy, biomechanics, surgery, training.
