Aortenthrombose bei einem Wallach: Behandlung mit dem Antikoagulans Phenprocoumon (Marcumar®)


Trachsel, Dagmar S; Cohausz, O; Scharf, Gernot; Wehrli Eser, Meret (2008). Aortenthrombose bei einem Wallach: Behandlung mit dem Antikoagulans Phenprocoumon (Marcumar®). Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 150(12):613-618.

Abstract

A 14-year old Swiss warmblood gelding was presented to the equine hospital of the University of Zurich because of therapy-resistant fever. An intermittent lameness suggested the presence of an intravascular aortoiliac thrombus which was confirmed sonographically. Subsequently, treatment was initiated with Heparin s.c. and continued for 7 months with Phenprocoumon (Marcoumar®). The dosage was monitored and adjusted according to the prothrombin time, which was initially measured every week, and later maximally biweekly. The lameness improved and the regression of the thrombus could be followed sonographically. Seven months later the horse had to be euthanized due to acute colic.
