Keywords:Dogs, Surgery, Perineal hernia
AbstractObserving the evolution and complications in the treatment of bilateral perineal hernias by dorsal access to the anus was the objective of this study. Fourteen dogs of various breeds were operated with an inverted "U" shaped incision, which extended from the lateral portion of the tuberosity Isquiatica on the left, bending into the direction of the midline, dorsally to anus and heading out symmetrically to the tip of the tuberosity Isquiatica contralateral. After reduction of the hernia, the right and left muscles of the pelvic diaphragm were sutured by the technique of raising the internal obturator muscle. The complications observed in the postoperative period were fecal incontinence, contamination of the wound, dehiscence of suture points of the skin, urinary incontinence and recurrence in a dog with 19 days after surgery. The access used was feasible and all dogs undergoing surgical technical proposal showed no recurrence in a period of five to ten months of postoperative assessment.
