Abstract

The use of biological membrane constitutes an alternative method to repair perineal hernia, and evaluate its performance as a reinforcement after herniorrhaphy by of raising internal obturator muscle was the goal of this study. Ten dogs admitted at the Department of Small Animal Surgery Veterinary Hospital of FMVZ / USP were included. Animals were equally divided into two groups, GI and GII. Perineal hernia was corrected by the elevating the internal obturator muscle in both groups, but in group GII won the strengthening of the pelvic diaphragm flap of equine pericardium pure English Thoroughbred, preserved in glycerol to 98%. The animals were evaluated until 90 days post-operatively by clinical examination, ultrasound and radiographic images of the perineal region. The results showed that there were enhanced at the site of the hernia with equine pericardium preserved in glycerol 98%, reducing the occurrence of dehiscence points and rupture of the diaphragm operated.
