Sample text

She had no pain sensation in the right forelimb and minimal voluntary movements in the left forelimb. Radiographic procedure: Radiographs were made of the thorax as a part of a clinical work-up for a trauma patient. Radiographic diagnosis: An increase in fluid density was noted in the cranial lung lobes. It was more prominent on the right side, probably indicating pulmonary contusion. It was difficult to evaluate the width of the mediastinum on the VD view, but the presence of mediastinal thickening due to hemorrhage was considered.

The diaphragm was intact. The lungs appeared normal. No pleural fluid was noted. Treatment/Management: The owner refused treatment of the paracostal hernia and the cat was lost to follow-up. The bowel loops were not distended and the possibility of a bowel obstruction was considered minimal; still, the owners were advised that surgical repair was recommended. 18 2 Signalment/History: “Olive” was a 2-year-old, female Old English Sheepdog with a history of being unable to breathe when placed in dorsal recumbency.

The right thoracic wall palpated as though there was a soft tissue injury with subcutaneous emphysema. Radiographic procedure: Positioning of the kitten was relatively easy and both views of the thorax were made. Radiographic diagnosis: A minimal separation of the 5th and 6th ribs on the right (DV view, arrow) was associated with generalized subcutaneous emphysema. The retraction of the lung lobes from the diaphragm on the lateral view was indicative of a pneumothorax. Generalized pulmonary contusion due to hemorrhage/edema caused increased lung density resulting in a silhouetting of the lung over the heart shadow, making the heart difficult to identify.
