Skin wounds were made on the shaved backs of all, undernourished, recovered and their controls, under tribromoethanol anesthesia.
Under tribromoethanol (Aldrich, 25mg/100g body weight) the back of all the rats (control and undernourished groups) were shaved and skin wounds (4mm diameter), each side of the median line, were prepared, separated around 2cm from each other (Fig.
The rats were anesthetized with tribromoethanol (10 mg/ kg of body weight), and a polyethylene catheter (PE-50) was inserted into the right carotid artery, tunneled under the skin and exteriorized at the neck.
In the malocclusion group, each animal was anesthetized with tribromoethanol (0.25 g/kg body weight) and submitted to extraction of the upper molars in the left hemiarch, with animals receiving the antibiotic benzathine benzylpenicillin (benzetacyl, 200,000 IU) as preoperative prophylaxis.
(5) detected a reduction of HR in mice anesthetized with K/X compared to those anesthetized with tribromoethanol. However, LVdD and LVFS were greater in the K/X group, suggesting that, despite having a negative chronotropic effect, K/X had no adverse effects on the echocardiography indices of LV ejection function.
Male rats were killed by cervical dislocation after anesthesia with tribromoethanol (250 mg/kg, ip).
