Recent evidence shows hydro-alcoholic solutions are more efficient than traditional medicinated soaps in the presurgical hand antisepsis of human surgeons. However, little veterinary literature is available on the subject. The aims of this study were to compare the efficiency of medicinated soaps and a hydro-alcoholic solution prior to surgery using an in use testing method in a veterinary setting. A preliminary trial was performed that compared the mean Log10 number of bacterial colony forming units (CFU) and the reduction factors (RF) between 2 five-minute hand-scrubbing sessions using different soaps (povidone iodine (PVP) and chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX)) and the 1.5-min application of a hydro-alcoholic rub (Sterillium). A clinical in use trial comparing mean log10 number of bacterial CFU’s and RF for Sterillium and CHX soap was performed in a surgical set-up. Sampling was performed using finger printing on agar plates. Sterillium and CHX had a similar immediate effect, although the sustained effect was significantly better for Sterillium. PVP showed a significantly lower immediate and sustained effect. Sterillium showed good efficiency in the clinical trial. This study shows that, as previously reported for human medicine, Sterillium can safely be considered as an attractive alternative method for surgical hand antisepsis in a veterinary surgical setting.

A 3 week old Friesian foal colt was presented with a history of respiratory distress since birth. Endoscopy showed obstruction of the right nasal passage to the nasopharynx. Computed tomography (CT) was performed to further characterize this unilateral blockage: images showed demonstrated a complete membranous obstruction of the ventral meatus, together with a deviation of the vomer bone to the left. The diagnosis of unilateral choanal atresia was confirmed. This is the first report describing CT features of choanal atresia in a foal. [less ▲]

Lesions to the horse’s tendon are very frequent and are a non negligible reason for early retirement of sport and leisure horses. For decades man has been searching for “the” treatment but unfortunately most of the known treatments have empiric bases and very few have actually proven their real efficiency. Diagnostic techniques like ultrasound allows to better evaluate the improvements made in tendonitis therapies. Stem cells and gene therapy are probably the most innovating of them, but their long-term effectiveness still has to stand the test of times. This article gives an overview of the possible treatments of tendonitis today. [less ▲]

Background: Atypical myopathy (AM) is an acute, severe rhabdomyolysis occurring in grazing horses. Since In the beginning of October 2009, a new outbreak affects started in several European countries. Geographic, demographic and clinical data of the reported cases in the month October 2009 are described. Key Findings: The survival rate over the month October 2009 was 25%. The most frequently observed clinical signs were congestedive mucous membranes, dyspnea, tachycardia, depression, weakness, stiffness, recumbency, trembling, transpirationsweating, and myoglobinuria. Non-survivors were significantly more often likely to be recumbent than survivors. Prognostic factors, symptomatic treatment and preventive measures are discussed. Significance: Slight differences were encountered during the described outbreak of AM in October 2009 compared to previous studies. Equine practitioners should be alert aware that previous epidemiological studies have shown that after a high prevalence this autumn, for new cases are likely to occur in the upcoming spring 2010.

Lesions to the horse’s tendon are very frequent and are a non negligible reason for early retirement of sport and leisure horses. For decades man has been searching for “the” treatment but unfortunately most of the known treatments have empiric bases and very few have actually proven their real efficiency. Better knowledge of tendon anatomy and pathophysiology of tendonitis together with evolutions in diagnostic techniques like ultrasonography allows us to better evaluate the improvements made in tendonitis therapies today. The first part of this article gives a review on tendon structure, tendon healing and ultrasonographic evaluation of the tendon. In the second part an overview of therapeutic options for tendonitis will be discussed. [less ▲]

Les rhabdomyolyses (i.e. myopathies avec destruction de fibres musculaires striées) sont des causes fréquentes d’intolérance à l’effort et dans le cas de la myopathie atypique, la gravité du mécanisme pathologique conduit presque inéluctablement au décès de l’animal. Que la myopathie soit induite par l’exercice ou qu’elle résulte d’une cause inconnue, il est primordial de confirmer rapidement l’existence d’un processus de lyse musculaire afin de le circonscrire et ultérieurement, de prévenir les récidives. Cet écrit reprend les éléments clés du diagnostic des myopathies accompagnées de rhabdomyolyse. Ce diagnostic repose essentiellement sur le signalement, l’anamnèse, les signes cliniques, un examen clinique approfondi et des examens complémentaires ciblés. La conduite à tenir face à un cas probable de myopathie est décrite en prenant soin de distinguer les myopathies dites d’exercice, la myopathie atypique et la myopathie associée à une infection à Streptococcus equi. Les mesures pour prévenir les myopathies et/ ou leurs récidives sont à nouveau distinguées selon le type de myopathie. De nouvelles techniques d’investigation des myopathies viennent d’être validées. A terme, elles devraient permettre une meilleure compréhension des processus physiopathologiques avec pour résultats une meilleure gestion clinique et une meilleure prévention des récidives.

Rhabdomyolyse (dit wil zeggen een myopathie met destructie van de dwarsgestreepte spiervezels) is een veel voorkomende oorzaak voor het niet goed presteren van het paard. In het geval van atypische myopathie leidt het door de ernst van het pathologische mechanisme zelfs voor het merendeel van de gevallen tot de dood van het paard. Of de myopathie nu wordt geïnduceerd door inspanning of dat ze het resultaat is van een onbekende oorzaak, het blijft primordiaal om snel het bestaan van spiercellyse vast te stellen om het te kunnen inperken en later recidieven te kunnen vermijden. Deze tekst vat de sleutelelementen samen om de diagnose te stellen van een myopathie die samengaat met rhabdomyolyse. Deze diagnose berust essentieel op het signalement, de anamnese, de klinische symptomen, een diepgaand klinisch onderzoek, en gerichte complementaire onderzoeken. Wat u moet doen als u geconfronteerd wordt met een geval verdacht van myopathie is beschreven op een manier waarop atypische myopathie wordt gescheiden van myopathiën geïnduceerd door inspanning en myopathiën geassocieerd aan een Streptococcus equi infectie. Ook de methodes om de myopathie en/of recidieven te voorkomen worden beschreven naargelang het type myopathie. Zeer recent zijn er nieuwe technieken gevalideerd om myopathiën te onderzoeken en op termijn zouden zij ervoor moeten zorgen dat de physiopathologische processen beter worden begrepen met als gevolg een betere klinische opvolging van de gevallen en een betere preventie van recidieven.

This case report describes a periarticular abscess and a suppurative arthritis of the atlanto-occipital joint in an adult horse. The horse showed a painful swelling localized on the atlanto-occipital region and ataxia in all four limbs. During his hospitalization the horse developed recumbency, dysphagia, facial paralysis and seizures. With the use of ultrasonography of the atlanto-occipital region a tentative diagnosis was made which was later confirmed by autopsy. Culture of the abscess revealed a Staphylococcus aureus. However, the horse had a history of recurrent fever, hypertrophy and abcessation of the submandibular lymph nodes, neck pain and dyspnoea for 2 months, suggestive for strangles. [less ▲]
