Suspected anesthesia associated esophageal stricture formation in a cat


Gültiken, Nilgün; Pekmezci, Didem; Ay, Serhan Serhat; Koldaş, Ece; Gram, Aykut (2014). Suspected anesthesia associated esophageal stricture formation in a cat. İstanbul Üniversitesi Veteriner Fakültesi dergisi, 40(2):270-274.

Abstract

The case of esophageal stricture of a one year-old queen that occurred after three anesthesia applications (one for ovariohysterectomy and the others for incisional wound complications) in two weeks was presented.Barium contrast esophagography provided the diagnosis of esophageal stricture located at the distal of thoracic esophagus, at the level of intercostal distance of 9-10 in mediastinum caudale. Feeding with canned food placed on a higher surface was recommended in order to prevent regurgitation and it was observed that regurgitation recovered in three days. Contrast radiography taken a month and a year later showed that location diagnosed as stricture was anatomically normal. In conclusion, repeated ane sthesia performed with xylazine HCl and ketamine HCl in two weeks may contribute in developing esophageal stricture in cats and feeding with soft food from a higher surface may be preferred before any surgical treatment.

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.
