Comparative Evaluation of Midventral and Flank Laparotomy Approaches in Goat.

Abubakar AA, Andeshi RA, Yakubu AS, Lawal FM, Adamu U - J Vet Med (2014)

Bottom Line: Total white blood cells (WBC) and lymphocytes counts were significantly different (P < 0.05) at the first and second week after surgery.There was significant difference of platelets critical value and platelets dimension width at the first and second week after surgery.It was concluded that midventral laparotomy approach can be conveniently and safely performed under aseptic precautions without fear of intra- and postoperative clinical problems.

ABSTRACT
The aim of the study was to compare two laparotomy approaches (flank and midventral). Ten (n = 10) apparently healthy goats of different breeds and sex, average age of 12 ± 2.1 months, and average weight of 13.4 ± 2 kg were used for the investigation. The goats were randomly divided into flank and midventral groups, each group comprising five goats (n = 5). Standard aseptic laparotomy was performed under lumbosacral epidural anaesthesia with mild sedation. Postsurgical wound score showed significant difference (P < 0.05) in erythema at 18-24 hours and 10-14 days after surgery between the two approaches; significant difference of dehiscence between the two groups was also recorded at 10-14 days after surgery. Total white blood cells (WBC) and lymphocytes counts were significantly different (P < 0.05) at the first and second week after surgery. There was significant difference of platelets critical value and platelets dimension width at the first and second week after surgery. Significant difference of packed cells volume between the two approaches was also recorded one week after surgery. It was concluded that midventral laparotomy approach can be conveniently and safely performed under aseptic precautions without fear of intra- and postoperative clinical problems.

fig1: Subjective healing interval (days) of the animals flank (FA) and midventral (MVA) approaches.

Mentions: The mean subjective healing intervals were 13.0 ± 1.14 and 12.4 ± 0.5 for flank and midventral approach. Midventral approach had lower mean healing intervals in days compared to the flank approach. There was no significant difference (P = 0.643) between the two groups when compared (Figure 1).
