OBJECTIVE To describe a simple method of laparoscopic-assisted ovariohysterectomy (LAOHE) and compare duration of surgery, complications, measures of surgical stress, and postoperative pain with open ovariohysterectomy (OHE) in dogs. DESIGN Randomized, prospective clinical trial. ANIMALS 20 healthy sexually intact female dogs weighing >10 kg (22 lb). PROCEDURES Dogs were randomly allocated to receive conventional OHE or LAOHE. Intraoperative complications, anesthetic complications, total… 
Surgical time and severity of postoperative pain in dogs undergoing laparoscopic ovariectomy with one, two, or three instrument cannulas.
TLDR
Results suggested that laparoscopic ovariectomy with 2 instrument cannulas, rather than with 1, resulted in shorter surgical times without increasing severity of postoperative pain.
Comparison of surgical variables and pain in cats undergoing ovariohysterectomy, laparoscopic-assisted ovariohysterectomy, and laparoscopic ovariectomy.
TLDR
It is suggested that LOVE in cats is safe, can be performed in a comparable amount of time as COVH, and may result in less postoperative discomfort.
Outcome of laparoscopic ovariectomy and laparoscopic-assisted ovariohysterectomy in dogs: 278 cases (2003-2013).
TLDR
Results suggested that short- and long-term outcomes were similar for female dogs undergoing sterilization by means of LapOve or LapOVH; however, surgery time may have been shorter for dogs that underwent LapOVE.
Evaluation of a laparoscopically assisted ovariectomy technique in cats
TLDR
LAO can be performed efficiently to maximize the benefits of minimally invasive surgery and is amenable to clinical practice.
Comparison of surgical variables and short-term postoperative complications in healthy dogs undergoing ovariohysterectomy or ovariectomy.
TLDR
Body weight, age, body condition score, and distance between the sternal manubrium and the pubic rim were comparable among dogs that underwent either surgical procedure, and significant differences in total surgical time, pain scores, and wound scores were not observed.
Assessment of Postoperative Pain in Cats After Ovariectomy by Laparoscopy, Median Celiotomy, or Flank Laparotomy.
TLDR
Laparoscopic Ovariectomy, although slower, appeared less painful compared with conventional ventral midline and flank ovariectomy and postoperative pain did not differ significantly between mid line and flank groups.
Canine ovariectomy by hybrid or total natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery: technical feasibility study and pain assessment.
TLDR
Both NOTES techniques were comparable for canine OVE, with no requirement for additional analgesia in the postoperative periods, and the minimally invasive techniques proposed for laparoscopic OVE are feasible for dogs with low pain scores and low rates of complications for both groups.
Laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy for dogs under 5 kg body weight.
TLDR
It is believed that LOHE, using a 3-port and ultrasonic coagulation and incision device, is a safe, useful, and minimally invasive surgical method for sterilization of dogs <5 kg with minimal complications.
Transvaginal laparoscopic ovariectomy in 60 dogs: Description of the technique and comparison with 2-portal-access laparoscopic ovariectomy.
TLDR
Transvaginal laparoscopic OVE provides a minimally invasive surgical alternative for OVE in dogs weighing 10-33 kg and aged 6-103 months, eliminating incisions through the abdominal wall, placement of suture material, and application of an Elizabethan collar.
The effect of laparoscopic versus open ovariectomy on postsurgical activity in small dogs.
TLDR
Laparoscopy is a safe method for ovariectomy in small dogs and results in increased postoperative activity counts when compared with an open technique.

Comparison of laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy and ovariohysterectomy in dogs.
TLDR
LOVH is a potentially safe surgical alternative to traditional OVH in dogs and may limit its usefulness in small animal practice because of equipment cost and necessity for more than 1 surgeon.
Laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy in nine dogs.
TLDR
Laparoscopic ovariohysterectomy was performed on nine, healthy, intact female dogs using a Harmonic scalpel; the magnitude of the difference between preoperative and postoperative creatine kinase values did not correlate with length of operative time, length of incisions, or amount of hemorrhage.
A canine model to assess the biochemical stress response to laparoscopic and open surgery.
TLDR
The rapid decline in serum cortisol after laparoscopy compared with open surgery may indicate a lesser degree, or quicker resolution, of surgical stress in the former, and the serum cortisol concentration appears to be a good measure of surgical Stress in the canine model.
Monopolar versus bipolar electrocoagulation in canine laparoscopic ovariectomy: a nonrandomized, prospective, clinical trial.
TLDR
BEC decreased laparoscopic ovariectomy time, decreased intraoperative hemorrhage, and, with the technique used, facilitated exteriorization of the ovaries.
Thoracoscopic versus open partial pericardectomy in dogs: comparison of postoperative pain and morbidity.
TLDR
Thoracoscopic partial pericardectomy has several advantages over open partial perICardectomy including decreased postoperative pain, fewer wound complications, and more rapid return to function.
Efficacy and kinetics of carprofen, administered preoperatively or postoperatively, for the prevention of pain in dogs undergoing ovariohysterectomy.
TLDR
Preoperative administration of carprofen has a greater analgesic effect than postoperative administration in the early postoperative period in dogs undergoing ovariohysterectomy.
Laparoscopic ovariectomy using sequential electrocoagulation and sharp transection of the equine mesovarium.
TLDR
Standing laparoscopic ovariectomy, using electrosurgical instrumentation, is an effective and safe technique to provide hemostasis of the mesovarium in mares.
Analgesia in dogs after intercostal thoracotomy: a clinical trial comparing intravenous buprenorphine and interpleural bupivacaine.
TLDR
Dogs in the bupivacaine group had significantly decreased total pain scores and better PaO2 and oxygen saturation values when compared with the dogs receiving buprenorphine, while dogs in the bespoke group had no significant changes whenCompared with their preoperative values.
Is minisite cholecystectomy less traumatic? Prospective randomized study comparing minisite and conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomies
TLDR
This prospective randomized study compares MC with conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy (CLC) in terms of surgical trauma and cosmetic results in 44 patients and found this technique could be a feasible alternative procedure in patients seeking better cosmetic results.
Post-operative central hypersensitivity and pain: the pre-emptive value of pethidine for ovariohysterectomy
TLDR
It is shown that pethidine has a positive benefit in terms of post‐operative outcome measures, when administered pre‐operatively, possibly as a result of blocking or preventing the development of central sensitisation following surgical stimulation.
