Case report: a rare right abomasal displacement in a feedlot bull calf

Abstract A Holstein male calf, less than 1 year old, was referred to the Veterinary Research and Teaching Hospital of University of Tehran (VRTH) with inappetence during the past 5 days and constipation. The first examination revealed depression and dehydration. Heart rate, respiratory rate, and rectal temperature were 107 bpm, 24 rpm, and 38.5 °C, respectively. Dehydration and hyperemia were observed in the mucus membranes. The feces were soft and scant with a foul odor. The contraction of rumen was weak, twice per minute. A clear tympanic and splashing sound was heard on the middle third of the right side in the percussion of the 13th intercostal space. To confirm the reason of tympanic sound, paracentesis was performed in the area with the most tympanic sound in right and left side of the rumen. In rectal examination, the abomasum was palpated as a sac-like organ full of gas on the right, attached to the abdominal wall in the middle of the height of the body. The distension stage of the abomasum was moderate. Additional tests like handle-induced sternum stress and chest gripping were also carried out. To differentiate from other conditions, ECG was taken using electrocardiograph (single-canal Focoda, Japan) in base-apex lead (with the paper speed 25 mm s−1 and calibration of 10 mm equal to 10 mV). The pH of paracentesis fluid of the right abdomen was 5.5 but protozoa were found in the microscopic field. Handle and gripping tests were negative. Based on t...

CONCLUSIONS: In the population studied mental illness alone was not a sufficient predictor for suicide. Rather, an interaction between mental illness, psychosocial crisis and other factors may explain and predict suicides. Suicide prevention should better address the needs of relatives and family doctors and offer specific low-threshold services. PMID: 31952085 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Whether bone–tendon healing is better facilitated by tendon fixation on a bone surface or within a tunnel is unknown. The purpose of this study was to comparatively evaluate the effects of bone surface versus bone trough fixation on bone–tendon healing in a rabbit patella–patellar tendon (PPT) injury model.MethodsThe rab...

Kevin Hines is a walking miracle, having jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and survived. But what might have kept him from jumping at all could have been something as simple as getting a letter in the mail. One psychiatrist's long-forgotten idea about giving support to those hospitalized or treated for depression or attempting suicide is being revived, and is finding positive results in an era of texting. Lee Cowan reports. [If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.]

CONCLUSIONS: Intra-observer reproducibility for thyroid nodule US reporting and US classification systems appears fairly adequate while the inter-observer agreement between different centers is lower than that assessed in single-center trials. Reporting and rating ability of thyroid US examiners still appear not consistent. An unified lexicon of thyroid US features, a simplified method of classification, and a dedicated training in the description of thyroid US findings may increase the observers' agreement and the predictive value of US classification systems in real world practice.
