Thirty equine isolated limbs have been examined by ultrasonography (7.5 MHz probes) using the frog as acoustic window. The aims of the study were to establish the ultrasonographic anatomy of the distal portion of the deep digital flexor tendon, to determine the capability to visualize podotrochlear bursa and flexor surface fibrocartilage by ultrasound and to evaluate the sensitivity of ultrasonography for the assessment of flexor surface abnormalities. Because of the relative orientation of the ultrasound beam and the deep digital flexor tendon fibers, this tendon always appears hypoechogenic on transcuneal ultrasonographic images. The flexor surface fibrocartilage is difficult to see if the podotrochlear bursa is not injected. The thickness of the normal bursa is negligible at the palmar aspect of the distal sesamoid bone. Sensitivity of ultrasonography for the detection of flexor surface irregularities was high (90,91%), sensitivity was 84,21%. Ultrasonography using the transcuneal approach could be an useful adjunct to routine radiographic examination of the foot in the assessment of flexor surface irregularities. [less ▲]

This study aimed at measuring the functional consequences and the pulmonary cytology changes following a simulation of pulmonary haemorrhage. Pulmonary function tests including lobeline-induced hyperventilation, cytology of tracheo-bronchial wash (TBW) and thoracic radiographs were performed before, as well as 1, 7, 14 and 28 days after, the instillation of 300 ml of blood into the lungs of 4 horses deemed free of exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage (Group 1). Control data (Group 2) were obtained by instilling the same volume of saline into the lungs of the same horses in a crossover design (control). The instillation of blood or saline resulted in an increase in the number of neutrophils in the TBW. Thoracic radiographs showed increased opacity in the caudodorsal region of the lungs in 4/4 (Day 1) and 2/4 horses (Day 7), in Group 1, and in 2/4 (Day 1) and 0/4 horses (Day 7) in the control group. These changes were attributed to the instillation procedure rather than the nature of the instilled material. Breathing mechanics and arterial blood gases at rest were not affected in either Groups 1 or 2. However, the maximal expiratory peak flow recorded during lobeline-induced hyperventilation was significantly lower (P<0.05) and the total pulmonary resistance significantly higher (P<0.05) on Day 1 in Group 1, but not Group 2. These observations suggest that expiratory flows might be partly limited in bleeders when breathing at high airflow [less ▲]

Ten normal equine isolated limbs were imaged using a knee coil in a 1.5 Tesla magnetic field, with short echo time sequences (TE < 15 ms). Magnetic resonance imaging was performed on each isolated limb in different positions, with and without extension of the metacarpophalangeal joint. Deep digital flexor tendon orientation ranged from 20 to 60 degrees in relation to the static magnetic field. Increased intratendinous signal intensity was observed when the angle between the deep digital flexor tendon and the constant magnetic field approached 55 degrees ("magic angle"). The increased signal intensity was independent from extension of the metacarpophalangeal joint. Recognition of the magic angle phenomenon is essential for proper evaluation of magnetic resonance imaging studies of the equine foot. [less ▲]

Ultrasonography is necessary to diagnose and differentiate soft tissues injuries of the palmar aspect of fetlock and pastern and completes the examination in cases with radiographic abnormalities on the proximal sesamoid bones. This paper reviews some of the injuries which can involve the anatomical structures of the palmar fetlock and pastern regions. [less ▲]

In soft tissue injuries of the equine limbs, the ultrasonographic examination is essential to make a diagnosis, to establish an orthapaedic treatment and to suggest a prognosis. A good knowledge of ultrasonographic anatomy is the base of musculo-skeletal ultrasonography: this paper presents the ultrasonographic anatomy of the palmar aspect of the pastern and fetlock regions and gives useful technical details to perform a complete ultrasonographic examination of these regions. The ultrasonographic anatomy is described and illustrated by transverse and longitudinal ultrasonographic Sections obtained with a 7.5 MHz linear transducer. [less ▲]

The purpose of this paper is to describe the technique for ultrasonographic examination of the podotrochlear apparatus in the horse using a transcuneal approach. In this study, ultrasound scans were performed in 3 normal cadaver limbs and 5 sound horses and images were compared to anatomic sections to establish the normal ultrasonographic anatomy of the podotrochlear apparatus. Detailed description of transverse and sagittal reference ultrasonographic images of this region is provided. This new imaging technique allows the assessment of the distal sesamoid bone flexor surface, the distal portion of the deep digital flexor tendon, the impar distal sesamoidean ligament, and the entheses of the distal phalanx.

A group of 22 donkeys underwent a serres of non-invasive cardiorespiratory tests in order to establish the reference standards for this species and compare the results with those for horses. For particular tests (haematology, measurement of arterial blond gases, electrocardiogram with phonocardiogram and thoracic radiographs, cardias echography), no major differences were found. However, the mechanical ventilation parameters differed from those for horses and moere similar to Chose for food-producing animais (carde): a higher resistance, a lower compliance and a higher maximum pleural pressure variation moere found. The "respiratory strategy" adopted by certain donkeys is different from that of horses: there are two to three phases of inspiration with a nil airflow between each phase. Expiration is the same as for horses. The conformation of the pharynx and larynx is slightly different to that of horses making it more difficult to pass an endoscope through this area. The lower respiratory tract is sensitive and it is necessary to apply a local anaesthetic (xylocaine) for this examination. The différential leukocyte count from tracheal lavage includes a number of epithelial cells, and a higher percentage of eosinophils and neutrophile for donkeys compared to horses. These similarities and différences between donkeys and horses should be taken into account when performing ancillary tests [less ▲]
