Vascular obstruction of the hindlimbs was diagnosed clinically in 15 horses, and was characterized at necropsy in eight of those horses. The condition was identified as an incidental post mortem finding in two additional horses. The principal clinical signs in affected horses were progressive exercise intolerance and hind-leg lameness. At post mortem the oldest lesions were located at the aortic quadrifurcation and in the distal portions of the femoral and internal iliac arteries, and consisted…

Pathology of Aortic-Iliac Thrombosis in Two Horses

From the findings of the two cases, it is suggested that AIT is one of the pathological conditions caused by Strongylus vulgaris infection.

Surgical thrombectomy in horses with aortoiliac thrombosis: 17 cases.

Surgical intervention by means of a thrombectomy in horses with AIT should be considered; 65% of the horses regained athletic activity and 53% ofThe operated horses in this study performed at their previous level.

Thrombosis of the aorta and the caudal arteries in the horse; additional diagnostics and a new surgical treatment.

Diagnostic techniques to monitor the development of hypoxemia in the diseased limb and to visualise the extension of the thrombosis into the femoral artery are presented.

This work has shown clear trends in the role of organ selectivity in the determination of metastatic patterns of B16 melanoma sublines with distinct patterns of site-selective metastasis.

Ejaculatory failure associated with aortic-iliac thrombosis in two stallions.

Treatment aimed at maximizing sexual arousal before mounting and reducing hind limb pain and exertion during breeding allowed these stallions to continue breeding and a program of gradually increasing daily exercise also was associated with improved breeding performance during subsequent breeding seasons.

Pulmonary arterial pulse wave velocity measurement in horses

The technique described could allow further investigation of the effect of calcification of large PAs in the pathogenesis of equine pulmonary circulatory disorders and a correlation with PWV could not be established with the data collected.

The clinical signs of aortic-iliac thrombosis are consistent with the lameness pattern and abdominal distress and postmortem results supported the clinical findings.

Animal models of primary myocardial diseases.

Clinical and pathologic findings indicate that cardiomyopathy in the cat or dog is similar to the three forms of cardiopathy in humans (hypertrophic, congestive, and restrictive).
