Surgical therapy without drainage in septic peritonitis
1845.jpg Picture: © Bayer Animal Health
Septic peritonitis is one of the classical indications to use abdominal drainage and perform peritoneal lavage. This is a very cost and labour-intensive procedure. In this study, an alternative technique is used in 28 dogs with generalized septic peritonitis ...

The overall mortality rate was 46%, with most cases of peritonitis being caused by leakage of
the gastrointestinal tract (75%).

Etiology of peritonitis, abdominal cytopathology, total white blood cell count, packed cell volume, total protein, and results of serum biochemistries were not statistically different between survivors and nonsurvivors.

The mortality rate of 46% is similar to other studies in which the abdomen was left open postoperatively for the management of septic peritonitis, although more advanced medical treatment than that used in earlier studies may have positively affected the outcome.

The results of this study show that closure of the abdomen after the source of contamination has been successfully corrected, in combination with thorough intraoperative peritoneal lavage and appropriate postoperative medical management, may be an acceptable alternative method for the management of septic peritonitis.

Novel intratumoral therapy in canine transmissible venereal tumourmembers
Canine transmissible venereal tumour (CTVT) is a naturally occurring contagious neoplasm of dogs located mainly on the external genitalia of both sexes. The course of vincristine chemotherapy, the most effective and practical therapy, is affected by the immune status of the host. The aim was to investigate recombinant human interferon alpha‐2a (rhIFNα‐2a) and vincristine for treatment of CTVT.
