Uterine and ovarian blood flow was investigated in four mares during two consecutive estrous cycles using transrectal color Doppler sonography. The uterine and ovarian arteries of both sides were scanned to obtain waves of blood flow velocity. The pulsatility index (PI) reflected blood flow. There were significant time trends in PI values of all uterine and ovarian blood vessels during the estrous cycle (P < 0.05). PI values did not differ between the uterine arteries ipsi- and contralateral to… CONTINUE READING
