Radiotherapy-Induced Myelosuppression In Dogs: 103 Cases (2002-2006), T Clermont, Amy Leblanc, William Adams, Casey Leblanc, Joe Bartges

William H Adams, DVM, DACVR

Definitive radiotherapy refers to delivery of large doses, typically 48-62 Gray, of ionizing radiation over several weeks using a daily or alternate-day fractionation schedule. The impact of definitive radiotherapy alone on haematopoiesis in tumour-bearing dogs is unknown. Medical records from 103 dogs receiving definitive (60) Cobalt teletherapy for cancer over a 5-year period were reviewed for signalment, tumour type and location, total radiotherapy dose and fractionation scheme. Complete blood count data were collected before, halfway through, and at the end of radiation treatment, and analysed for changes associated with patient variables. The results demonstrate significant reductions in haematocrit, total white ...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Susceptibility Artifacts Due To Metallic Foreign Bodies, Silke Hecht, William Adams, Jill Narak, William Thomas

William H Adams, DVM, DACVR

Susceptibility artifacts due to metallic foreign bodies may interfere with interpretation of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies. Additionally, migration of metallic objects may pose a risk to patients undergoing MR imaging. Our purpose was to investigate prevalence, underlying cause, and diagnostic implications of susceptibility artifacts in small animal MR imaging and report associated adverse effects. MR imaging studies performed in dogs and cats between April 2008 and March 2010 were evaluated retrospectively for the presence of susceptibility artifacts associated with metallic foreign bodies. Studies were performed using a 1.0 T scanner. Severity of artifacts was graded as 0 (no ...

The Role Of Meca And Blaz Regulatory Elements In Meca Expression By Regional Clones Of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Pseudintermedius, C Black, L Eberlein, S Solyman, Rebecca Wilkes, F Hartmann, Barton Rohrbach, David Bemis, Stephen Kania Oct 2012

The Role Of Meca And Blaz Regulatory Elements In Meca Expression By Regional Clones Of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Pseudintermedius, C Black, L Eberlein, S Solyman, Rebecca Wilkes, F Hartmann, Barton Rohrbach, David Bemis, Stephen Kania

Rebecca P. Wilkes DVM, PhD, DACVM

Two major regional clones of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP) have been identified in Europe and North America. They are designated multilocus sequence types (ST) 71 and 68 and contain staphylococcal chromosome cassette (SCCmec) types II-III and V(T), respectively. One notable difference between the two clones is a deletion in the mecI/mecR1 regulatory apparatus of ST 68 SCCmec V(T). This deletion in analogous methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) results in more responsive and greater expression of the mecA encoded penicillin-binding protein 2a, and is associated with SCCmec types occurring in community-acquired MRSA lineages. The aim of this study was ...

Reproductive Tract Vasculature Of The Female Emu ( Dromaius Novaehollandiae), Robert Reed, L Cope, James Blackford Jul 2012

Reproductive Tract Vasculature Of The Female Emu ( Dromaius Novaehollandiae), Robert Reed, L Cope, James Blackford

James T. Blackford DVM, MS, DACVS

The arterial supply of the ovary and oviduct is provided by the ovarian artery, cranial oviductal artery, accessory cranial oviductal artery, middle oviductal artery, caudal oviductal artery and the medial and lateral vaginal arteries. These arteries supply various regions of the oviduct and are branches of either the left cranial renal artery, left external iliac artery, left middle renal artery, left lateral caudal artery or the left pudendal artery. The veins that drain the reproductive tract are satellite vessels to each artery that supplied the tract.
