Thrombosis of the cranial vena cava in a cow with bronchopneumonia and traumatic reticuloperitonitis


Gerspach, C; Wirz, M; Knubben-Schweizer, G; Braun, U (2011). Thrombosis of the cranial vena cava in a cow with bronchopneumonia and traumatic reticuloperitonitis. Canadian Veterinary Journal, 52(11):1228-1231.

Abstract

This paper reports the clinical findings, surgical and medical management, and necropsy of a 6 year old cow with thrombosis of the cranial vena cava and thrombo embolic pneumonia following traumatic reticuloperitonitis. The clinical diagnosis was confirmed by necropsy. Thrombosis of the caudal vena cava is a well known disorder of cattle, whereas thrombosis of the cranial vena cava is relatively uncommon (1-7). Liver abscesses that break into the caudal vena cava are the most common cause of thrombosis of the vessel (3,8). Thrombosis of the cranial vena cava is usually attributable to embolism of a jugular vein thrombus and is less often due to haematogenous spread of infection (6). Thrombosis of the vena cava is often associated with metastatic bronchopneumonia with characteristic clinical signs. Wyssmann (1), Breeze (9) and Bueno (10) described respiratory syndrome and signs of congestion in cattle with
thrombosis of the cranial vena cava. This case report describes the clinical findings in a six-year-old Swiss Braunvieh cow with thrombosis of the cranial vena cava.

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.
