Uterine prolapse By Dr.Sulake Fadhil Abbas

PowerPoint Presentation:

Occurs in all the large animal species. It is most common in the cow and ewe, less common in the sow and doe goat, and rare in the mare.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Etiology - Poor uterine tone: uterine inertia - in cattle hypocalcemia (a cause of primary uterine inertia) may predispose. -Increased straining, which may be caused by pain or discomfort after parturition. -Other causes of increased intra-abdominal pressure. including tympany and recumbency. -Excessive traction at assisted parturition and the weight of retained fetal membranes have been suggested as other predisposing factors.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Clinical signs The mucosal surface of the uterus - with its coty ledons - is visible and part of the chorioallantois may still be attached.

Prognosis This depends on: 1-The duration of the problem. 2-The degree of damage and contamination sustained by the uterus. 3-The degree of shock in the animal. 4-The position and accessibility of the patient.

5-Remove the placenta or its remnants from the cotyledons - if it separates easily . If not, leave it attached. 6- Repair any gross damage such as tearing using an absorbable suture. 7- Reducing the size of the prolapse - this is not really necessary. Some obstetricians recommend applying sugar or salt to 'draw out the edema.
