Head computed tomography in equine practicemembers
Computed tomography (CT) has become popular also in the diagnosis of equine patients, including lesions of the head. This retrospective study describes the findings in 59 horses presented with diseases of the head over 8 years that underwent CT examination of this region, including dental or sinonasal diseases (Group A) (n = 42), osseous and/or articular diseases (Group B) (n = 11) and soft tissue diseases (Group C) (n = 6). A very useful new study!

Prognostic factors in cats with HCMmembers
Left atrial (LA) enlargement, congestive heart failure (CHF), and aortic thromboembolism (ATE) are associated with decreased survival in cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), but the prognostic value of echocardiographic variables has not been well characterized. Do LA echocardiographic variables and assessment of left ventricular (LV) diastolic and systolic function have prognostic value in cats with HCM?

Standing intraoral extractions of cheek teeth in horsesmembers
Diseased cheek teeth in horses often require invasive extraction techniques that carry a high rate of complications. Techniques and instrumentation were developed to perform partial crown removal to aid standing intraoral extraction of diseased cheek teeth in horses. The objectives of this retrospective cohort study were to analyse success rates and post-surgical complications in horses undergoing cheek teeth extraction assisted by partial crown removal.

Tricho-dento-osseus-like syndrome in a Brown Swiss calfmembers
A novel congenital disorder affecting a six-month-old female Brown Swiss calf was observed, and its phenotype and genetic mutation identified. Diagnostic investigation and whole genome sequencing of a case parent trio was performed. A very informative case Report that has been published recently.

Ureteral Papilla Implantation in Cats Undergoing Renal Transplantationmembers
Renal transplantations in cats have become popular over the last years, but still they are associated with many complications especially for the recepient. The objective of this retrospective case series was to describe the clinical outcome of donor and recipient cats undergoing ureteral papilla harvest and implantation as a technique for neoureterocystostomy in clinical kidney transplant.


Non-tuberculous Mycobacteria in healthy slaughtered cattle and the abattoir members
Infections caused by non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are reported as emerging disease in many countries worldwide. The occurrence of NTM in different hosts and their implication as obligate or opportunistic pathogen remain largely unclear. Lymph nodes and faecal samples of clinically healthy Swiss cattle at slaughter were analysed for the presence of NTM. The results were alarming.

Leishmania spp. in Bats from an Area Endemic for Visceral Leishmaniasismembers
The multihost parasites Leishmania spp. infect a broad range of wild mammalian species including bats. Several species of bats have adapted to a variety of food resources and shelters in urban areas. This study aimed to detect Leishmania spp. DNA in bats present in forest fragments located in metropolitan areas endemic for leishmaniasis in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul (MS), Brazil. Which role do these animals play in leishmaniasis?

Storage lesion in canine packed erythrocytesmembers
The objective of this recently published study was to describe the biochemical changes – also known as the storage lesion – that occur in canine packed red blood cells during ex vivo storage. Very relevant for daily practice!

Actinobacillus capsulatus peritonitis and chyloabdomen in a horsemembers
Primary peritonitis in horses attributable to Actinobacillus equuli has been reported in Australia, New Zealand and North America. Published reports describe a rapid response to treatment with appropriate antimicrobial and supportive treatment and an excellent prognosis for survival. To the authors´ knowledge, this is the first reported case of Actinobacillus capsulatus in the horse.

  • Optimizing MRI results of the spinemembers
    Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is generally considered to be the best imaging modality for the spine because of its excellent tissue contrast and multiplanar imaging capability; however, good technique is vital in order to avoid nondiagnostic or even misleading images. This publications gives a variety of helpful advices to optimize the results!
