In Europe a lot of windows open from the top outwards in a diagonal action. This creates a problem when cats try to jump in and out as they often slide down and get stuck. The consequences of this have resulted in this problem actually being given a name: Kippfenster Syndrome. Kippfenster Syndrome results from external obstruction to arterial flow. In some ways, the pathology is not too dissimilar to saddle thrombus or compartmental syndrome. Reduced or absent perfusion to the area secondary to reduced arterial flow results in tissue ischaemia. The caudal aspect of the body often suffers reduced perfusion for several hours. What complicates this problem is that when the patient is released from the window after a significant period of time, reperfusion injury sets in. Although reperfusion is required for cellular salvage, several studies have demonstrated an increase in toxic cellular by-products from reperfusion and ischaemia, compared to ischaemia alone. What to do next? Continue reading about Kippfenster Syndrome.
Cats with lower respiratory tract disease will typically present with coughing, dyspnoea, and occasionally in severe cases central cyanosis (which is present when there is more than 5g/dl of deoxygenated haemoglobin present). Cough is a sudden expiratory effort, initially against a closed glottis, producing a forced expulsion of air from the lungs. Coughing results from stimulation of the cough receptors, located in the larynx, trachea and bronchial tree. Therefore, cats with cardiac or pleural space disease rarely cough (although cats with pyothorax may have a concurrent pneumonia which can lead to coughing). In addition, the respiratory pattern should be carefully assessed. Cats with pulmonary parenchymal disease will show an expiratory pattern, which is typically restrictive; whereas those with pleural space disease will demonstrate an inspiratory restrictive inspiratory dyspnoea. Read here more about causes, investigation and treament about pneumonia’s in the cat.
This video presented by Dr. Edoardo Auriemma DVM Dip. ECVDI, is a guide in the diagnostic approach to an abdominal radiograph. Abdominal radiographs often represents the first Imaging procedure in the diagnostic work up of the vomiting patient; this technique can provide essential information to the clinician before referring the patient to further diagnostic procedures (i.e. ultrasonography). If you want to learn a correct understanding of the radiographic anatomy of the abdomen and how to execute a systematic approach to an abdominal radiograph, start video-lecture 'Radiographic signs of abdominal disease' now.
