Clinical determination of preoperative and postoperative intra-abdominal pressures in dogs.


Intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) was indirectly measured, using a transurethral catheterization technique, in 20 client-owned dogs before and after elective ovariohysterectomy. Mean preoperative IAP was 4.50 +/- 0.44 cm H2O. Elective abdominal surgery caused significant elevations in mean postoperative IAP (mean 7.50 +/- 0.45 cm H2O, range 0 to 15 cm H2O… (More)
