(99m)Tc-Dtpa Diuretic Renal Scintigraphy In Dogs With Nephroureterolithiasis, Silke Hecht, Meg Lawson, India Lane, Dorothy Sharp, Gregory Daniel 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

(99m)Tc-Dtpa Diuretic Renal Scintigraphy In Dogs With Nephroureterolithiasis, Silke Hecht, Meg Lawson, India Lane, Dorothy Sharp, Gregory Daniel

India F. Lane

This study evaluated the results of diuretic renal scintigraphy in dogs with urolithiasis. Eighty-three kidneys with nephroureterolithiasis +/- renal pelvis/ureteral dilation were included in the study. Sixty-three kidneys showed a non-obstructive pattern, with a steep drop or gradual downward slope of renal time-activity curve (TAG). Excretion half-time of radiopharmaceutical (T-1/2) was 3.99 (2.99 to 7.95) min. Three kidneys showed an obstructive pattern, with continuous rise of the TAG and median T-1/2 of -10.71 (-5.20 to -17.56) min. Fifteen kidneys had non-diagnostic studies characterized by flat TAG. Individual kidney glomerular filtration rate was ...

Characterization Of Multiple Acquired Portosystemic Shunts Using Transplenic Portal Scintigraphy, F Morandi, Patricia Sura, D Sharp, GB Daniel 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Characterization Of Multiple Acquired Portosystemic Shunts Using Transplenic Portal Scintigraphy, F Morandi, Patricia Sura, D Sharp, Gb Daniel

Patricia A. Sura

We describe the scintigraphic patterns observed in 14 patients with confirmed multiple portosystemic shunts imaged via transplenic portal scintigraphy. Parameters evaluated included presence of multiple anomalous vessels, presence of hepatofugal flow caudal to spleen, and/or to cranial margin of the kidneys, slow absorption resulting in longer spleen to heart transit time, and presence of biphasic or fragmented bolus. Twenty-eight additional patients, 14 with a confirmed single portocaval and 14 with a portoazygos shunt, were used for comparison. Nine of 14 (64.3%) patients with multiple shunts had multiple vessels, five (35.7%) had a biphasic bolus, 13 (92.9 ...

Physical Rehabilitation Of The Canine Neurologic Patient., Marti Drum 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Physical Rehabilitation Of The Canine Neurologic Patient., Marti Drum

Marti G Drum

Rehabilitation therapy is a key component of recovery from neurologic disease. Each patient requires a rehabilitation protocol designed specifically for the patient's neurologic condition, owner expectations and level of participation, and expertise of the veterinary team. Initial therapy for nonambualtory patients may include standing exercises, range of motion, pain control, toe pinch exercise, aquatic exercise, and basic nursing care. Sling assisted walking with foot protection, cavaletti rails, and physioroll balancing are used commonly for ambulatory patients. As recovery progresses, stair climbing, carrying or pulling weights, resistance band walking, swimming against resistance, and exercises specific to the home environment are ...


Immunomodulatory Effects Of Opioids., Adesola Odunayo, J. Dodam, Marie Kerl, A. DeClue 2009 Selected Works

Immunomodulatory Effects Of Opioids., Adesola Odunayo, J. Dodam, Marie Kerl, A. Declue

Adesola Odunayo, DVM, MS, DACVECC

OBJECTIVE: To review the immunomodulatory effects of opioids. DATA SOURCES: Original research publications and review articles using the PubMed search engine with the following keywords--opioids, morphine, immuomodulation, and immunosuppression. VETERINARY AND HUMAN DATA SYNTHESIS: Opioids have been shown to modulate the immune system in animal models by affecting both the acquired and innate arms of the immune system. Natural killer cell activity, T-cell proliferation, antibody production, phagocytic cell function, and cytokine production have all been shown to be affected by opioids. Many of these effects are reversed by opioid antagonists. Opioids have also been shown to induce sepsis in laboratory ...

Measurement Of Plasma Cardiac Troponin I Concentration By Use Of A Point-Of-Care Analyzer In Clinically Normal Horses And Horses With Experimentally Induced Cardiac Disease, M Kraus, Sophy Jesty, A Gelzer, N Ducharme, H Mohammed, L Mitchell, L Solderholm, T Divers 2009 Cornell University

Measurement Of Plasma Cardiac Troponin I Concentration By Use Of A Point-Of-Care Analyzer In Clinically Normal Horses And Horses With Experimentally Induced Cardiac Disease, M Kraus, Sophy Jesty, A Gelzer, N Ducharme, H Mohammed, L Mitchell, L Solderholm, T Divers

Sophy Jesty

OBJECTIVE: To compare cardiac troponin I (cTnI) concentrations determined by use of a point-of-care analyzer with values determined by use of a bench-top immunoassay in plasma samples obtained from clinically normal horses with and without experimentally induced cardiac disease, and to establish a reference range for plasma equine cTnI concentration determined by use of the point-of-care analyzer. ANIMALS: 83 clinically normal horses, 6 of which were administered monensin to induce cardiac disease. PROCEDURES: A blood sample was collected from each of the 83 clinically normal horses to provide plasma for analysis by use of the point-of-care analyzer; some of the ...

Feline Focus-Feline Thyroid Storm: Rapid Recognition To Improve Patient Survival, M Tolbert, C Ward 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Feline Focus-Feline Thyroid Storm: Rapid Recognition To Improve Patient Survival, M Tolbert, C Ward

M Katherine Tolbert DVM, PhD, DACVIM

In human medicine, thyroid storm is a well-recognized condition of acute thyrotoxicosis in which the patient's metabolic, thermoregulatory, and cardiovascular mechanisms are overwhelmed by excessive circulating levels of thyroid hormone. The etiology is unknown, but multiple precipitating factors have been proposed. Hyperthyroid cats presenting in thyrotoxic crisis have clinical signs similar to those of human thyroid storm patients; however, thyroid storm has not yet been fully characterized in veterinary medicine. Early recognition and prompt, appropriate treatment of this life-threatening condition are essential to obtaining a favorable outcome.
