Ultrasound as a decision-making tool in abdominal surgery in cows


Braun, Ueli (2005). Ultrasound as a decision-making tool in abdominal surgery in cows. The Veterinary clinics of North America. Food animal practice, 21(1):33-53.

Abstract

In many patients, abdominal ultrasonography is an excellent diagnostic and prognostic tool. It aids in deciding whether the animal should undergo surgical or medical treatment or be slaughtered. This is particularly true in cattle with traumatic reticuloperitonitis (in combination with radiography of the reticulum) or with a tentative diagnosis of left or right displacement of the abomasum. Ultrasound also is an excellent aid for identification of ileus of the small and large intestine, liver abscesses, cholestasis, various urinary tract disorders, and the different forms of ascites.
