Surgical, systemic and topical therapy of nasal aspergillosis
None of these therapies is really new in canine nasal aspergillosis, and none of them as monotherapy has become really convincing in the last years. Is the combination of all three approaches the therapeutic nonplusultra?

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of rhinotomy and surgical debridement associated with topical administration of 2 per cent enilconazole and oral itraconazole in dogs with severe or recurrent sinonasal aspergillosis.

METHODS: A standard rhinotomy was performed on seven dogs. In the initial study, the bone flap was left attached cranially and replaced at the end of the procedure.

In the main study group, the bone flap was discarded.

Nasal passages were debrided and irrigated with enilconazole solution for one hour.

Oral itraconazole was administered to four dogs for one month postoperatively.

Follow-up rhinoscopy was performed in all dogs.

RESULTS: All three dogs in the initial study had recurrence of the disease and two dogs had a second surgery to remove the flap.
The main study group included four dogs in which the flap was initially removed, and the two dogs from the initial study that required a second surgery.
At follow-up rhinoscopy, five dogs were free of aspergillus but had bacterial or inflammatory rhinitis and one dog had a small aspergilloma but was subsequently asymptomatic.
Telephone follow-up revealed that four dogs were asymptomatic, one dog had intermittent sneezing and serous nasal discharge, and one dog had intermittent epistaxis.

CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: Rhinotomy with removal of the flap combined with one-hour infusion of 2 per cent enilconazole and oral itraconazole resulted in satisfactory outcome in dogs with severe or recurrent aspergillosis.

Microbiota of traumatic, open fracture wounds and the mechanism of injury
Open fractures are characterized by disruption of the skin and soft tissue, which allows for microbial contamination and colonization. Preventing infection‐related complications of open fractures and other acute wounds remains an evolving challenge due to an incomplete understanding of how microbial colonization and contamination influence healing and outcomes. Culture‐independent molecular methods are now widely used to study human‐associated microbial communities without introducing culture biases. This recently online published study describes the fascinating association between the mechanism of injury and the microbiota of the wounds.
