EquiGraft™ is a resorbable membrane allograft for the treatment of dermal injuries, topical lacerations, and soft tissue wounds. EquiGraft™ is made from equine amnion tissue from live, healthy donors. Available as 4” x 6” sheets that can be cut to size, Equigraft™ is a hydrated membrane that can readily accommodate most topical injuries. It has been terminally irradiated to a sterility assurance level (SAL) 10-6, the same as mandated for medical devices. Equigraft™ can be stored at room temperature, so it’s there when you need it.
Q. IS IT POSSIBLE TO HARVEST EGGS FROM A DECEASED MARE?
A. YES! This is possible within a certain time frame.
Here, Dr. Cramer is extracting oocytes to be fertilized by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and transferred into a recipient mare. This procedure is normally performed on mares who are alive and well, but can also be an option for someone who loses a mare suddenly and would like the opportunity to raise a foal from her.
Give Acadiana Equine Hospital a call to discuss our ICSI program and oocyte extraction. (337) 407-9555
