Implantation intraluminaler Stents zur Behandlung des Trachealkollaps beim Hund


Glaus, T M; Matos, J M; Baloi, P; Wenger, M (2011). Implantation intraluminaler Stents zur Behandlung des Trachealkollaps beim Hund. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 153(11):505-508.

Abstract

Tracheal collapse is a progressive disease particularly of small breed dogs. In the terminal stage, when dyspnea becomes the dominating sign and is no longer manageable with medical treatment, a surgical procedure is necessary. With increasing frequency intraluminal tracheal stents are implanted minimal-invasively. In individual animals this is a lifesaving procedure, leading to immediate elimination of dyspnea. In most dogs cough for some time has to be anticipated as the stent acts as a foreign body, but severe complications like excessive formation of granulation tissue, stent migration or stent fracture are rare. Stents represent an attractive treatment modality for tracheal collapse in dogs with dyspnea.
