INTRODUCTION The authors propose a simple method for assessment of canine kidney size derived from the radiological technique described by Finco et al in 1971. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 26 healthy dogs ultrasonography was used to measure the length, height, and thickness of each kidney. These measurements were correlated with the lengths of the fifth and(More)
PURPOSE The ductus venosus (DV) blood flow has been studied in fetal lambs and in humans. This study aims to describe the velocities, the Doppler indices and the morphological patterns of the venous blood flow in the DV of canine fetuses during physiological pregnancy. METHODS The DV of 55 canine fetuses has been evaluated and the waveforms described(More)
AIM To define the prognostic value of Doppler ultrasonographic morphology of ductus venosus (DV) waveform on canine neonatal mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-four healthy pregnant bitches underwent fetal ultrasonographic assessment. The DV waveforms were classified as diphasic (dDVw) or triphasic (tDVw) and compared with neonatal mortality. (More)
