New surgical technique for rectovaginal fistulas in horses
Postpartal rectovaginal fistulas in horses are sometimes seen and require surgical intervention. This new technique, using a vaginal mucosal pedicle flap, was developed at the University of Leipzig, Germany. It seems a very useful alternative to the established surgical techniques, and one mare foaled subsequently without complications.

Three mares with RVF were included in this clinical study.

Technique: After debriding the RVF, a dorsally based U-shaped mucosal and submucosal pedicle flap (2-4 mm thick) was dissected from the vaginal wall, rotated approximately 90° angle to close the ventral aspect of the fistula and sutured in position with 10-13 single sutures that did not penetrate the rectal mucosa. This positioned the vaginal mucosa so that it was continuous with the rectal mucosa.

Results: Two RVF healed by 1st intention whereas for the 3rd RVF, 2 additional single sutures were required to repair partial dehiscence after 10 days. At 6 weeks and 6 months all RVF were healed. One mare subsequently foaled without complications.

Thus, tension-free closure of RVF can be achieved by rotating a pedicle flap of vaginal mucosal tissue without undue wound tension, and should be considered as an alternative to conventional appositional techniques.

Limbal squamous cell carcinoma in a Rocky Mountain Horse and geneticsmembers
One privately owned Rocky Mountain Horse and 84 Rocky Mountain Horses screened for allelic frequency were enrolled in this study. The objective: To document a case of limbal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in a Rocky Mountain Horse stallion determined to be homozygous for the genetic risk factor (DDB2 c.1013C>T) strongly associated with the disease in Haflinger and Belgian horses, and to determine the frequency of this allele in a larger population of Rocky Mountain Horses.
