Tomsa, K; Major, A; Glaus, T M (2011). Behandlung von Atresia ani Typ I mittels Ballondilatation bei 5 Katzen- und einem Hundewelpen. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 153(6):277-280.

Abstract

Atresia ani is the most common anorectal anomaly in small animals. In the present study, an anal stricture (atresia ani type I) in five 3 to 8 weeks old kittens and one 4 month old puppy was treated by balloon dilation. In 4 kittens and the puppy the stricture was eliminated permanently and without complications by a single intervention. Only the smallest kitten with the most severe stenosis developed a rectal fistula as a complication of repeated balloon dilation, which necessitated surgical correction. Balloon dilation proved to be an efficient therapeutic method for anal atresia type I, and can be recommended as the treatment of choice.
