83% of the owners satisfied with mandibulectomy
Cats with oral and in the most cases malignant tumours: What is the best to recommend the owners. Many veterinarians refuse to give the mandibulectomy as an therapeutic option because they assume that the owners will never allow to do such a surgery. But surprisingly they often do, and even with a short survival time most of the owners are satisfied with the result of the surgery, as this brandnew study shows...

Medical records of 42 cats treated with mandibulectomy for oral neoplasia at eight institutions were reviewed to determine morbidity, progression-free interval, and survival time.

Progression-free and survival rates at 1 and 2 years were 56% and 49%, and 60% and 57%, respectively.

Cats with squamous cell carcinoma had significantly shorter survival than cats with fibrosarcoma or osteosarcoma.

Seventy-two percent of cats were dysphagic or inappetent immediately postoperatively, and 12% never regained the ability to eat.

Despite acute morbidity in 98% and long-term morbidity in 76% of cats, 83% of the 30 owners providing information were satisfied with the outcome of mandibulectomy.

Fluorescein sodium-guided resection of intracranial lesions in dogsmembers
Twenty-two dogs with intracranial lesions were enrolled in this prospective case series. The objectives were to evaluate the safety of an intraoperative fluorescein sodium (FS) injection and elucidate the relationships between the MRI findings, pathological diagnoses, and intraoperative staining characteristics of intracranial lesions in 22 dogs.
