Computed tomographic findings in 205 dogs with clinical signs compatible with middle ear disease: a retrospective study.

Computed tomographic findings in 205 dogs with clinical signs compatible with middle ear disease: a retrospective study. Vet Dermatol. 2017 Oct 10;: Authors: Belmudes A, Pressanti C, Barthez PY, Castilla-Castaño E, Fabries L, Cadiergues MC Abstract BACKGROUND: Computed tomography (CT) is considered to be the reference method to evaluate middle ear structures. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the presence and severity of CT changes in the middle ear and establish if any specific clinical presentations are associated with otitis media. ANIMALS: Medical records of animals referred for CT with history and clinical signs consistent with middle ear disease. METHODS: Retrospective evaluation of CT examinations of tympanic bullae performed over a six year period. Medical records were reviewed for signalment, clinical signs and cytological evaluation of the external ear canal. Dogs were divided into three clinical groups: chronic otitis externa (Group 1), peripheral vestibular disorder (Group 2) and other clinical presentations (Group 3). RESULTS: Group 1 - Of 214 ears, 87 (40.7%) had CT abnormalities: 38 of 87 (17.7%) had material-filled bullae, 42 of 87 (19.6%) had thickened bullae walls and seven of 87 (3.2%) had lysis of the bulla. Abnormalities were significantly more frequent in dogs with suppurative otitis than in erythemato-ceruminous otitis (57% and 23%, respectively; P = 0.003). Proliferative otitis, particularly in French bu...

We report the case of a 66-year-old woman with lung cancer in which preoperative three-dimensional computed tomography reconstruction and intraoperative images displayed a novel combined ectopic variation of the RUV and bronchus. The RUV was absent from the anterior hilum, but instead was present in the superior and posterior hilum dispersedly. In addition, the right upper lobe bronchus was ectopic to the lower edge of the "bronchus intermedius". Based on this discovery, video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy was successfully performed.

We study the production of foams from viscous shear-thinning liquids containing a non-ionic food grade surfactant (PGE 55), Xanthan gum and caster sugar, using a continuous pilot-scale device having twelve rotor-stator pairs. The effects of process parameters (rotor speed...

The study aimed at assaying and assessing the polyphenolic content and antioxidant capacity of: (a) five obscure cultivars; (b) six biotypes of cultivar ‘Liatiko’; (c) five prominent cultivars; and (d) three French varieties included for comparison reasons. Results revealed all samp...

We investigated factors structuring the helminth and protozoan infections of wolves (Canis lupus) by using coprological analyses. Faecal samples (n = 342)were analysed from 11 wolf packs belonging to three different geographical and ecological settings in Italy (Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise National Park, PNALM: 4 packs, 88 samples), in France...

We report an unusual case of a late intercostal artery pseudoaneurysm, after a video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, presenting as a large intra-parenchymal lung mass. Diagnosis was made by biphasic computed tomography angiography and contrast-enhanced pulsed-wave doppler ultrasound. To minimize the risk of aneurysm bleeding immediate angiographic embolization was planned and successfully performed.IAP should be considered in presence of lung mass in patients who have previously undergone an intervention with intercostal approach to prevent life-threatening complications.
