The heart contains a specific system dedicated to the generation of electrical impulses and their conduction to the working myocardium. This system consists of cells able to generate an electrical impulse spontaneously and bundle structures that propagate the impulse to the atria and ventricles. The electrical impulse originates in the sinus node, situated at the junction between the right atrium...
The wound illustrated (94a) resulted from removal of a mast cell tumor in a dog. There is ample skin for closure of the defect. i. Name three suture techniques that can be used to repair this circular wound.ii. Placement of the initial sutures resulted in a "dog ear". List three methods of correcting this fold.
Unlike the situation in humans and cats, acromegaly in the dog due to a pituitary adenoma is extremely rare, although a case has been described. Acromegaly in the dog is more frequently related to the production of mammary growth hormone (GH). This production occurs in middle-aged or elderly bitches during the luteal phase of the oestrous cycle as a consequence of high levels of progesterone in...
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is nowadays the technique of choice for the diagnosis of infections by Feline herpesvirus (FHV); this technique is based on a molecular biology method that, compared to the traditional methods, has greater sensitivity and specificity. PCR is commonly used to detect FHV-DNA in conjunctival, corneal, and oropharangeal samples and in corneal sequestra and blood. The...
So far it has been possible to identify and associate very few pheromones with a precise behavioural function. As far as concerns mammals, the pheromones found have been classified according to the glands by which they are secreted or by their type of action. The latter classification includes pheromones of adoption, appeasement, identification, territorial delimitation, alarm and sexually-...
Organophosphates and carbamates are commonly used as pesticides in the household environment, in agriculture, in industry and as parasiticides in veterinary medicine. The two groups of compounds share a common mechanism of action and have similar toxic effects on animals. Both groups include compounds with relatively low toxicity and others that are extremely toxic or lethal (nerve gases).
ORIGINS AND EVOLUTION IN HUMAN AND VETERINARY ORTHOPAEDICS Professor Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov (1921-1992) was Director of the Institute of Traumatology and Clinical Orthopaedics in the city of Kurgan, in Siberia. Ilizarov started applying his orthopaedic technique about 50 years ago and it has been used in Europe and in North America since 1981. Ilizarov developed his apparatus in 1951...
