I'm Michael Swindle. I'm a professor emeritus at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. And I'm going to be speaking about surgically produced models in swine. And then later Dr. McCrackin will conduct the second part of the lecture on perioperative care.

To start off with, not all pigs are created equal in terms of their growth rates. And for instance, the green pattern here is the growth of a domestic pig, a farm pig, which will grow upwards of 100 to 120 kilos in about four to six months time after birth, as compared to the miniature breeds whose growth curves are down here at the bottom in various colors. And the miniature breeds are made to grow more slowly than the farm pigs, but physiologically they are the same genus and species.
