Laparoscopic study of horse abdominal viscera by ventral midline approach
Keywords:Laparoscopy, Endoscopy, Peritoneoscopy, Equidae
AbstractThis study describes the anatomotopographic position of horse abdominal viscera using laparoscopy. Three differents approaches were used: retroxiphoid, preumbilical and retroumbilical. Fifty one laparoscopic examinations were performed in 11 geldings and 6 males of differents breeds, and ages ranging from 18 months old to 24 years old. The animals were positioned in dorsal recumbency under general anesthesia. Pneumoperitonium was produced using air for a better visualization of the
abdominal cavity. This procedure allowed the examination of the diaphragma, stomach, epiplon, liver, spleen, cecum, large colon, small colon, small intestine, urinary bladder, uterus and inguinal rings. This is a safe method to evaluate abdominal cavity and complement the usual procedures in horse diagnostic laparoscopy.
