The majority of studies on cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) disease to date have been carried out on dogs that already sustained a CrCL rupture, which is the end-stage of the disease. Investigations have recently been carried out to study humoral and cellular immunopathological mechanisms in predisposed dogs before clinical rupture of the contralateral(More)
Brain perfusion can be investigated using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and the intravenous injection of (99m)technetium ethyl cysteinate dimer ((99m)Tc-ECD). However, sedation using medetomidine, an α(2)-agonist, or anaesthesia using medetomidine and ketamine, an N-methyl-d-aspartate-(NMDA)-antagonist, may be required for SPECT studies(More)
The lymphoid tissue that is associated with the intestinal tract, the so-called gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), is well developed in the chicken. Depending on the location, it is present as aggregations of lymphoid cells, or organized in lymphoid follicles and tonsils. From proximal to distal, the intestinal tract contains a pharyngeal tonsil,(More)
The layout of the porcine atriopulmonary junction and immediately adjacent structures was investigated by gross anatomical and vascular corrosion casting studies to meet the need for more in-depth anatomical insights when using the pig as an animal model in the development of innovative approaches for surgical cardiac ablation in man. The veins from the(More)
Diagnostic procedures aimed at in vivo evaluation of brain perfusion as an indirect measure of brain function are becoming available for use in small animal medicine, though in contrast with human medicine, these procedures frequently require anesthesia. Besides the direct influence of anesthetics on cerebral perfusion, anesthesia can also cause changes in(More)
A palatalal cleft creates an open communication between the oral and nasal cavities, making it impossible for a severely affected animal to adequately suck and swallow (Headrick et al., 2004; Kelly and Bardach, 2012; Reiter and Holt, 2012). In the majority of cases, alimentary nasal discharge, coughing, sneezing and malnutrition are the first clinical(More)
The canine omental bursa is a virtual cavity enclosed by the greater and lesser omentum. While previous representations of this bursa were always purely schematic, a novel casting technique was developed to depict the three-dimensional organization of the omental bursa more consistently. A self-expanding polyurethane-based foam was injected into the omental(More)
The canine omentum has many valuable properties but is still an underestimated organ. It contributes in many ways to the protection of the peritoneal cavity through its versatility on immunological level, but also through its role during angiogenesis, absorption, adhesion and fat storage. Despite a wide range of applications, the basic structure of the(More)
Although the omentum remains an enigmatic organ, research during the last decades has revealed its fascinating functions including fat storage, fluid drainage, immune activity, angiogenesis and adhesion. While clinicians both in human and veterinary medicine are continuously exploring new potential omental applications, detailed anatomical data on the(More)
