Nuss, Karl; Forster, Eva; Reichert, Christof; Muggli, Evelyne; Braun, Ueli (2009). Splenectomy for treatment of suppurative splenitis caused by a reticular foreign body in a heifer. Veterinary Surgery, 38(4):477-480.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To report the clinical findings and treatment of a heifer with suppurative splenitis. STUDY DESIGN: Clinical report.
ANIMALS: A 30-month-old heifer.
METHODS: Splenectomy in the standing calf after local anesthesia and 13th rib resection. RESULTS: The heifer had an uneventful recovery but was culled because of septic tarsitis 3 months later.
CONCLUSIONS: Splenectomy is a useful treatment for cattle with traumatic splenitis if diagnosed early. Partial splenectomy may have prevented the late complication of septic tarsitis.
CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Suppurative splenitis is usually a complication of hardware disease and has a grave prognosis unless splenectomy is carried out.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
