Abstract:

The present study was conducted in ten dairy heifers (Bos taurus) suffering from intestinal intussusception. All these cases exhibited the clinical signs of bouts of colicky pain for 6-12 hours followed by anorexia and cessation of faeces. In all cases, the onset of disease was between 72-120 hours. Per-rectal palpation revealed spiral-shaped mass and distended intestinal loops. Ultrasonographically, distended loops, ileus, passive movement of ingesta and presence of peritoneal fluid were consistent findings. The diagnosis of intestinal intussusception was made on the basis of clinical signs, per-rectal palpation and trans-abdominal ultrasonography. Further it was confirmed on full abdominal right flank exploratory laparotomy. All the heifers were subjected for standing right flank laparotomy under linear infiltration of local anaesthesia followed by exteriorization and resection of intussucepted intestinal mass. The side-to-side entero-anastomosis was done by open lumina technique using gastro-intestinal anastomotic (GIA) stapled devices. Signalment, duration of surgery and anastomotic time were recorded in all cases. Thus, Intestinal intussusception in dairy heifers was diagnosed on the basis of clinical signs, per-rectal palpation, trans-abdominal ultrasonography which was further confirmed by full abdominal right flank exploratory laparotomy. The GIA staples applied for side-to-side entero-anastomosis by open lumina technique took less total surgical and anastomotic time. Moreover, there was reduction in tissue trauma/manipulation and in contamination by intestinal contents. The closure of bowel was easy and secured. GIA staples can be used effectively for entero-anastomosis in cattle affected with intestinal intussusception.
