Atypical myopathy is highly fatal, but about a quarter of affected horses survive. This highlights the need for provision of supportive treatment for these patients. This review is a practical guideline for equine practitioners and includes suggestions for close monitoring of involved organ systems and discusses options of supportive treatment based on current knowledge of the condition. Part 2 covers the muscular, urinary, respiratory and hepatic systems, and the general inflammatory/infectious status of the case. [less ▲]

Appropriate management of atypical myopathy (AM) requires the establishment of an accurate diagnosis and prognosis. Furthermore, preventive measures to avoid AM need to be refined. The aims of the study were as follows: 1) to improve the diagnosis of AM; 2) to identify prognostic predictors; and 3) to refine recommended preventive measures based on indicators of risk factors.

Epidemiological data of atypical myopathy cases reported in France in autumn 2006 to spring 2010 were compared with those of European cases. During the observation period, 38.9% of European cases were French. The demographics of the French case were identical to the European cases but the survival rate was higher (32% vs. 26%). Differences in the management of horses and pastures have emerged. From these elements, techniques, case management and the environment are proposed [less ▲]

Several rectal biopsy techniques have been reported in horses and sites vary between 15cm or 30cm from the anus, and on the rectal floor or roof. The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety of the technique performed with a uterine biopsy claw and the diagnostic value of rectal biopsies. Eight rectal biopsies, taken at 2H, 4H, 8H, 10H of the rectal wall respectively, each at both 15cm and 30cm from the anus, were taken pre-mortem with a uterine biopsy claw from 12 horses destined to euthanasia. Seven of these horses suffered from weight loss or chronic diarrhoea and 5 were control horses euthanized for non-digestive reasons. At the post-mortem samples of duodenum, ileum, caecum, colon and rectum were taken and the rectum was inspected for macroscopic lesions. Histopathology was performed on haematoxylin-eosin stained slides of all samples. Statistical analysis was performed with Fisher’s test. Sampling was considered easier at 2H for a right-handed person. Necropsies show that 91% of biopsies located 30cm from the anus and 48% of biopsies located 15cm were taken cranial of the retroperitoneal reflection. Hematomas (44%) existed especially on the ventral side. Inflammation at histology was significantly more important in rectal biopsies sampled at 30cm from the anus and in sick horses compared to 15cm and control horses respectively. The results of this study suggest that rectal biopsy could be an interesting ancillary test in horses with chronic diarrhoea or weight loss, but also shows the limits of the technique. [less ▲]

Traumatic wounds and particularly limb wounds in horses can be difficult to treat. Horses show protracted and weak inflammatory reaction in the first stages of the wound healing causing delays[1]. Several types of treatments have been tested in order to promote wound healing in horses, with variable success[2]. Vacuum-assisted closure(VAC) has been used in human medicine for over a decade now, but only one regarding a horse is available [3]. This presentation descrebis the use and the experiences of the authors with VAC in horses. [less ▲]
