OBJECTIVE To investigate the knot holding capacity (KHC) of pattern-ending square, surgeon's and Aberdeen knots each tied in 4 throw combinations using large gauge suture after exposure to media commonly found in equine abdominal surgery. STUDY DESIGN In vitro mechanical study. SAMPLE POPULATION Knotted suture strands (n = 10/group). METHODS Strands(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the strength, size, and holding capacity of the Aberdeen knot compared to surgeon's and square knots using large gauge suture. STUDY DESIGN In vitro mechanical study. STUDY POPULATION Knotted suture. METHODS Aberdeen, surgeon's, and square knots were tested using 2 and 3 USP polyglactin 910 and 2 USP polydioxanone under linear(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the strength and size of surgeon's and square knots for starting and ending continuous suture lines using large gauge suture. STUDY DESIGN In vitro mechanical study. STUDY POPULATION Knotted suture. METHODS Surgeon's and square knots were tested using 2 and 3 USP polyglactin 910 and 2 USP polydioxanone under linear tension on(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the use of a wire snare technique for epiglottic entrapment. STUDY DESIGN Case series. ANIMALS Eight adult horses. METHODS Under general anesthesia, a modified mouth gag was placed in the oropharynx. An endoscope was passed through the gag until there was adequate visualization of the entrapped epiglottis. The entrapping mucosa(More)
