Abstract

This report describes a simple surgical method of exiting an implanted intravenous catheter through the skin via a nonsutured site. The preparation, which makes use of a biopsy punch, avoids placing the catheter exiting point through the incision used for subcutaneously fixing the catheter platform on the back of the animal.
