Abstract:

A total of 6 cows with teat wounds involving teat cistern were subjected for the present study. All the cows were subjected for preoperative evaluation. Under sedation with Inj. Xylazine @ 0.1 mg/kg B.wt. I/V and ring block with 2% Lignocaine hydrochloride, the muscosal and muscular layers were sutured by continuous suture pattern using 3-0 polyglactin 910. Freshly prepared and activated autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) gel was applied to the sutured muscular layer. The skin was opposed by applying disposable stainless steel skin staples, followed by the application of activated autologous PRP gel to the apposed skin. Postoperative evaluation was carried on 5th day with second application of activated autologous PRP gel to the surgical site and morphological and ultrasonographical evaluation of healing was carried out on 10th postoperative day. PRP favoured early concomplicated healing in teat wounds.
