Case control study to identify risk factors for simple colonic obstruction and distension colic in horses.
A case control study was performed to identify risk factors for colic caused by simple colonic obstruction and distension (SCOD) in the horse and three of the risk factors were associated with a large increase in risk. Expand
Long-term survival of equine surgical colic cases. Part 1: patterns of mortality and morbidity.
This study provides data that will inform the prognosis for postoperative colic cases and identifies epiploic foramen entrapment as carrying a worse prognosisFor survival than other strangulating lesions. Expand
Correlation of antigen specific IgG and IgG(T) responses with Anoplocephala perfoliata infection intensity in the horse
Assessment of anti‐12/13 kDa IgG(T) provides a useful tool for the assessment of A perfoliata infection intensity for clinical diagnosis and for epidemiological studies. Expand

The records of 200 colic episodes, collected prospectively, over a two year period, from first opinion cases, were analysed and compared with a control sample selected at random from the same population to find no statistically significant differences. Expand
Long-term survival of equine surgical colic cases. Part 2: modelling postoperative survival.
This study used data from 321 horse years of postoperative survival time to model the probability of survival following recovery from colic surgery and proposes a model that can be used to inform prognosis. Expand
Intra-abdominal adhesions in horses: a retrospective evaluation of repeat laparotomy in 99 horses with acute gastrointestinal disease.
Findings strongly support the need for pan-abdominal, rather than site-specific adhesion prevention measures in all horses undergoing exploratory laparotomy. Expand
Horse-level risk factors for fatal distal limb fracture in racing Thoroughbreds in the UK.
Modifications to training schedules, specifically within the first year of racing, may have a large impact on the risk of fatal distal limb fracture on the racecourse. Expand
Risk factors for epiploic foramen entrapment colic: an international study.
The association between horses of greater height and those with a previous history of colic and increased risk of EFE suggests that some horses may be inherently predisposed to EFE. Expand
Horse injuries and racing practices in National Hunt racehorses in the UK: the results of a prospective cohort study.
A prospective cohort study on horses starting in hurdle and steeplechase races on six UK racecourses in 2000 and 2001 found the commonest types of injury were tendon/suspensory injuries and lacerations/wounds. Expand
Risk factors for epiploic foramen entrapment colic in a UK horse population: a prospective case-control study.
Horses exhibiting certain behaviours, those with a previous history of colic and horses of greater height appear to be at inherently greater risk of Epiploic foramen entrapment. Expand
