Tissue Blocks

  • BSB - Biliary System Block: A tissue block comprised of the stomach, omentum, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, duodenum, and 12” of the jejunum with mesentery intact.
  • GYNB - Gyn Block: Included in this block is the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, broad ligament, and cervix.
  • GYNBUSA - Gyn Block with Urinary system attached: Included in this block is the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, broad ligament, cervix, urinary bladder, ureters, and urethra.
  • HTLB - Heart Lung Block: Heart with pericardium, lungs, esophagus, trachea, and larynx.
  • HTLBPM - Heart Lung Block with pleural membrane: Heart with pericardium, lungs with intact pleural membrane (a few nicks may exist in the pleural membrane), esophagus, trachea, and larynx.
  • RABDA - Renal Artery Block - Dissected and packed in adipose: Right and left kidneys attached to the abdominal aorta with both renal arteries.  This block is dissected/skeletonized and then wrapped in adipose to retain moisture to the tissues.
  • RUB - Renal Urinary Block: Right and left kidneys, renal arteries, and veins attached to the aorta and vena cava, urethra, urinary bladder and ureters.  All tissues are in an intact tissue block.
  • RUBNV - Renal Urinary Block without the venous system: Right and left kidneys with each renal artery attached to the abdominal aorta, urethra, urinary bladder, and ureters.  All tissues are in an intact tissue block.
  • SPLVGBST - Spleen, Liver, Gall Bladder, Stomach Block: This tissue block is comprised of the spleen,cranial and caudal vascular bundles, liver with gall bladder and bile, and the stomach with omentum. The contents are rinsed out with water through the sphincters, or through an incision on the lesser curvature of the stomach which must be specified when ordered.
  • UBT - Urinary Bladder Block: This tissue block includes the urinary bladder, both ureters, urethra, and optional prostate.  Specify the sex of the animal.
  • UGIP - Upper Gastric Block: This tissue block is comprised of the stomach (contents rinsed out with water), the liver and gall bladder (with or without bile retained), pancreas, and duodenum with mesentery (12” coiled length).
