Abstract

Multiorgan pathology is a common finding during the diagnostic work-up of complex medical diseases in small animals. Collection of cytologic or biopsy samples from several abdominal organs can give the clinician crucial information in guiding therapy. Although many modalities are available for sample collection, laparoscopic and laparoscopic-assisted techniques offer a minimally invasive approach for collection of high-quality biopsy samples from multiple organs during one anesthetic episode. This article discusses the laparoscopic approaches and techniques for multiorgan biopsy in cats and dogs.
