The aim of this study was to evaluate single and double centrifugation tube methods for concentrating equine platelets. Whole blood samples were collected from clinically normal horses and processed by use of single and double centrifugation tube methods to obtain four platelet concentrates (PCs): PC-A, PC-B, PC-C, and PC-D, which were analyzed using a flow(More)
Two horses with acute tendinopathy of a superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) and three horses with chronic proximal desmitis of the suspensory ligament (PDSL) were treated by injecting autologous concentrates of their platelets into the lesions. The lesions were monitored ultrasonographically and clinically. There were significant ultrasonographic and(More)
BACKGROUND Increased synovial fibrinolytic activity (detected by increases in synovial D-Dimer concentrations) has been observed in different joint diseases in humans and adult horses, presumably in order to minimize fibrin deposition within the joint and thus avoid its detrimental effects. OBJECTIVE To investigate fibrinolytic pathway activation in joint(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the synovial fibrinolytic pathway activation in adult horses with developmental and degenerative arthropathies such as osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) and osteoarthritis (OA) by measuring synovial D-dimer concentrations. METHODS Prospective observational clinical study of horses admitted for OCD or OA. Synovial fluid was collected(More)
BACKGROUND Borderline ovarian tumours (BOT) do not exhibit overt stromal invasion and are less aggressive than invasive epithelial ovarian tumours. BOT also arise in younger patients than those who develop epithelial ovarian tumours. Our aim was to evaluate the feasibility of ovarian cryopreservation (OC) in patients treated for BOT. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of Temozolomide on female fertility and the relevance of our coverage in preservation of fertility. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 2005 to 2009, 24 patients treated with Temozolomide for a low-grade glioma were included in the study (12 women who underwent a fertility preservation consultation and 12 women who did not). A(More)
After single oral administration of ketoconazole (30 mg/kg bodyweight [bwt]) in 50 ml of corn syrup to a healthy mare, the drug was not detected in serum. Ketoconazole in 0.2 N HC1 was administered intragastrically to six healthy adult horses in five consecutive doses of 30 mg/kg bwt at 12 h intervals. Ketoconazole concentrations were measured in serum,(More)
REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Athletic taping is used frequently by human athletes to stabilise, maintain or strengthen soft tissue structures, but empirical evidence supporting any changes in equine kinematics is lacking. OBJECTIVES To assess the effects of athletic taping of the fetlock applied by an experienced athletic trainer on forelimb mechanics in(More)
The medical records of 468 horses that underwent 490 exploratory laparotomies for the correction of gastrointestinal diseases were reviewed to search for differences between Andalusian horses and other breeds. The seasonal distribution of surgical colics and their outcome and complications were also investigated. Bivariant analysis was used to compare the(More)
