Canine brachycephalic airway syndrome is a progressive disease that affects many brachycephalic dogs. This article describes the components of this syndrome and focuses on acute emergency management and long-term conservative management of these patients. Surgical management is described in a companion article.

TLDR
Early recognition of primary anatomic abnormalities that include stenotic nares, elongated soft palate, and hypoplastic trachea would allow the clinician to make early recommendations for medical and surgical management, which can improve the quality of life in affected animals. Expand
Brachycephalic Syndrome.
TLDR
Rhinoplasty and palatoplasty as well as newer surgical techniques and postoperative care strategies have resulted in significant improvement of the prognosis even in middle-aged dogs. Expand
BRACHYCEPHALIC AIRWAY SYNDROME IN DOGS
Brachycephalic syndrome in dogs, also called congenital obstructive disease of the upper airway is described as a continuous process of anatomical and functional disorders of the respiratory andExpand
Brachycephalic airway syndrome: management of post-operative respiratory complications in 248 dogs.
TLDR
Surgical intervention for BAS symptomatic dogs should be considered at an earlier age as an elective procedure, to reduce the risk of post-operative complications. Expand
Pharyngeal contraction secondary to its collapse in dogs with brachycephalic airway syndrome
TLDR
It is concluded that dynamic 4D-CT is a highly-detailed diagnostic approach for detecting laryngopharynx motion and appears to contribute toward the worsening of clinical respiratory signs of Brachycephalic airway syndrome. Expand
Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome in dogs
TLDR
Brachycephalic airway syndrome results from hereditary development defects of cranium, in this breeds, normal head width decreases and can lead to respiratory and cardiovascular problems such as pulmonary vasoconstriction, pulmonary hypertension, right ventricle failure and even life loss as a result of complications like laryngeal collapse. Expand
Tongue and Upper Airway Dimensions: A Comparative Study between Three Popular Brachycephalic Breeds
TLDR
The findings corroborate the importance of respecting breed specific differences in regard to surgical treatment of brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome and questions the accuracy of the term macroglossia in pugs, and should be considered if surgical correction is sought. Expand
PATHOLOGIE RESPIRATOIRE DU CHIEN : ENTRE PRÉDISPOSITION RACIALE ET GÉNÉTIQUE DOG'S RESPIRATORY DISEASE: BETWEEN RACIAL PREDILECTION AND HEREDITARY TRANSMISSION
The main respiratory disease with racial predilection or hereditary transmission are described with emphasis for their frequency and severity
Histological and mechanical comparisons of arytenoid cartilage between 4 brachycephalic and 8 non-brachycephalic dogs: A pilot study
Brachycephalic airway syndrome (BAS) is a well-established cause of respiratory distress in dogs. BAS without surgical correction results in eventual laryngeal collapse. Arytenoid lateralization hasExpand
Nasopharyngeal Dimensions From Computed Tomography of Pugs and French Bulldogs With Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome.
TLDR
Computed tomographic assessment of the upper airway morphology showed the smallest nasopharyngeal cross-sectional areas were located dorsal to the caudal end of the soft palate in both breeds. Expand

The development of severe secondary laryngeal changes in dogs aged six months or less supports the suggestion that immature brachycephalic dogs should undergo assessment and, if indicated, surgery as soon as any clinical signs of BAS are apparent. Expand

TLDR
A multi-institutional retrospective study of 103 dogs in which hypoplasia of the trachea was diagnosed was conducted, finding that it appears to be tolerated well in the absence of concurrent respiratory or cardiovascular disease. Expand

TLDR
Comparing with other studies, digestive tract medical treatment combined with upper respiratory surgery seems to decrease the complication rate and improve the prognosis of dogs presented for upper respiratory syndrome. Expand
