Complete Resection as Treatment of Septic Common Digital Extensor Tendosynovitis
Bayer 1228.jpg Picture: Ā© Bayer Animal Health
Seven horses with wounds that resulted in septic tendosynovitis of the CDET sheath were treated by complete surgical resection of the affected tendon and ablation of the tendon sheath in a prospective clinical study - with surprising good results.

5 of these animals had previous surgery that was unsuccessful. Time from initial injury to complete resection was 1-22 weeks.

In 6 horses, the wound was closed primarily using a closed suction (4 horses), penrose (1), or passive open drainage system (1). In 1 horse, the surgical wound healed by second intention.

All horses had postoperative bandaging, antibiotic administration, and physiotherapy.

The wounds healed primarily in 6 horses and by second intention in 1 horse. Follow-up (mean, 26.4 months; range, 18-38 months) was available for 6 horses; all returned to their athletic performance level without lameness or gait abnormality.

Thus complete resection of the CDET was an effective surgical technique for management of chronic septic tendosynovitis. Horses with infection of the CDET and its sheath may be returned to long-term soundness without gait abnormality after radical resection.

EQUINE

Valacyclovir in horses with equine multinodular pulmonary fibrosismembers
Equine herpesvirusā€5 is commonly isolated from the lungs of horses with EMPF, suggesting an etiological link. Valacyclovir is used empirically to treat EMPF; however, no data is available concerning its impact on EHVā€5 viral kinetics. The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of oral administration of valacyclovir on EHVā€5 viral load measured by qPCR in blood, nasal secretions (NS) and BALF in horses with EMPF on six horses diagnosed with EMPF.
