Editorial Note on Cecum Location in Rats for Intraperitoneal Injections

Intraperitoneal injection may be a common route for parenteral administration of medicine in rodents. a significant consequence related to this system , however, is that the puncture of important organs like the cecum, which causes pain and infrequently peritonitis. Reports have described the cecum as located on either side of the lower abdomen, contributing to the thought that intraperitoneal injections are often performed in either side. The authors investigated the situation of the cecum in man and feminine albino and pigmented rat strains, and evaluated the results of intraperitoneal injections within the right and left portion of the lower abdomen. Of the rats they investigated, 71.8% had ceca on the left side of the abdomen. The authors also found that injections on the left side were more likely to end in punctured ceca.
