Kamalakar G, Prasad VD, Devaratnam J, Ganeshan A - Open Vet J (2015)

Bottom Line: A body wall hernia entrapping abomasum and concurrent duodenal fistula in a buffalo calf aged about 8 months, secondary to a dog bite was successfully treated by closure of fistulous orifice and ventro lateral herniorrhaphy.

Ultrasonographic view of the abdomen (Curvilinear probe, 3.5 MHz, Probe placed at area dorsal to the wound at ventro lateral abdomen in transverse plane). Observe discontinuity in muscle wall.

Figure 2: Ultrasonographic view of the abdomen (Curvilinear probe, 3.5 MHz, Probe placed at area dorsal to the wound at ventro lateral abdomen in transverse plane). Observe discontinuity in muscle wall.

Mentions: Clinically, the calf was anorectic, appeared dull and dehydrated with normal clinical parameters. Open wounds were observed at the right lateral abdomen with gangrenous skin, right thigh, base of neck and left flank regions with different stages of healing. Of these, the wound at right lateral abdomen was open and bigger, with digesta leaking through it. On uncovering the gangrenous skin flap, fistula was visualized with lot of cutaneous adhesions and damaged muscular tissue with purulent exudate. No sign of herniation was observed on physical examination. pH of the digesta was on acidic side (pH 2). Packed cell volume and haemoglobin were 22% and 8 g/dL respectively. Ultrasonographic examination revealed discontinuity in the abdominal muscle layers and subcutaneous herniation of the viscera (Fig. 2). Based on the clinical signs, pH of the digesta and the position of fistula it was tentatively diagnosed as caudal abomasal hernia associated with fistula. Although it was not a clinical emergency, it was attended immediately because; the animal owner wanted to salvage the animal as he was from far off place from our college hospital. Moreover, treatment was already delayed and there was a risk of further contamination by existing sepsis. Thus, we decided to perform an emergency surgery.
