Use and effect of hand antiseptics in veterinary practicemembers
Veterinary practice nurses were questioned concerning their use of hand antiseptics, in particular waterless hand rubs. Subsequent clinical trials assessed the effect of single applications of alcohol-based and quaternary ammonium compound-based hand rubs at reducing bacterial counts on the hands of theatre nurses in a neutering clinic. The objective of this Investigation was to assess use and effect of hand antiseptics in veterinary clinical practice.

Diagnostic Markers in Dogs With Hemangiosarcoma Related Hemoabdomenmembers
Hemoabdomen as a consequence of a ruptured hemangiosarcoma especially in splen or liver is a common emergency in small animal practice. Not in all cases sonography is available to diagnose this causative neoplasia. This recently published new study investigates: 1) acanthocytosis and presence of acanthocytes in peritoneal fluid as a diagnostic marker for hemangiosarcoma (HSA) in dogs with non-traumatic hemoabdomen; and 2) the association between other erythrocyte, biochemical, and hematologic abnormalities as a mean of differentiating HSA from other disease.
Very relevant for daily practice!

Novel surgical technique for type III distal phalanx fracture in horsesmembers
Type III distal phalanx fracture are not easy to repair, and several surgical techniques are described for this problem. This experimental new study was performed for mechanical evaluation of a novel screw position used for repair in a type III distal phalanx fracture model and assessment of solar canal penetration (SCP). Is the new technique a good option?

Regional Lymph Node Metastatic Burden and Prognosis in Canine Malignant Mammary Tumors members
As in women, regional lymph node status impacts survival in dogs with malignant mammary Tumors, a very common neiplasia in dogs. However, few studies have evaluated regional lymph node metastases in dogs with malignant mammary gland tumors. The objectives of this study were to estimate overall survival based on the assessments of the lymph node status and the morphologic and morphometric features in female dogs with malignant mammary gland tumors.

Enhancing bleomycin efficacy in cats with periocular carcinoma and advanced SCC of the headmembers
Advanced carcinoma of the head represents a substantial health problem in cats for local control and overall survival. This recently only published study evaluates the capability of electrochemotherapy (ECT) to improve bleomycin efficacy in cats with periocular carcinoma and advanced carcinoma of the head. 21 cats with periocular carcinoma (17 squamous cell carcinoma [SCC] and 4 anaplastic carcinoma) and 26 cats with advanced SCC of the head were included in this nonrandomized prospective controlled study.


LGI Proteins and Epilepsy in Animals and Humansmembers
Leucine-rich glioma-inactivated (LGI) protein was first thought to have a suppressor effect in the formation of some cancers. Developments in physiology and medicine made it possible to characterize the function of the LGI protein family and its crucial role in different conditions more precisely. These proteins play an important role in synaptic transmission, and dysfunction may cause hyperexcitability. Genetic mutation of LGI1was confirmed to be the cause of autosomal dominant lateral temporal lobe epilepsy in humans. Is this also true for dogs?

Dysphagia in horses - nutritonal supportmembers
The dysphagic horse will frequently require nutritional support due to a failure to ingest either sufficient or any feed at all to meet its daily energy and protein requirements. There are a variety of means by which this nutritional support can be provided - this update is very useful to choose the best solution in the individual case!

Iodine-Restricted Diet in Cats with Spontaneous Hyperthyroidismmembers
Exclusive feeding of an iodine-restricted diet has been proposed as a method for controlling clinical manifestations of hyperthyroidism in hyperthyroid cats. This recently published retrospective case series determines the effect of feeding an iodine-restricted diet on TT4 concentrations and clinical signs in 49 client-owned cats with spontaneous hyperthyroidism.

Correlation between histopathology and MRT in the stifles of healthy horsesmembers
With the recent introduction of a 0.25T rotating MRI system, clinical evaluation of the equine stifle joint is now possible in the average equine athlete. A recent publication described common abnormalities of horses with stifle lameness detected with a low-field MRI system; however, postmortem corroboration of the lesions detected was not possible. Therefore, the authors´ objective was to compare postmortem findings with low-field MRI findings in equine cadaver stifle joints.
