OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the long-term efficacy of the transobturator vaginal tape inside out (TVT-O) in female dogs with urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence (USMI). STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. ANIMALS: Incontinent spayed female dogs (n = 12). METHODS: TVT-O tape was inserted in 12 incontinent bitches diagnosed with USMI. Follow-up information was evaluated by a telephone questionnaire, and a continence score was attributed. RESULTS: One year after surgery, 7 of 12 (58%) dogs were completely continent. Two dogs were removed from the long-term analysis (1 dead and 1 lost). At a median follow-up time of 85 months (range, 28-95), 4 of 10 dogs were completely continent without medical treatment. Incontinence recurred in 6 dogs at a median time of 2 months after surgery (range 1-20). Among these 6 dogs, 4 regained continence, and 2 had sporadic episodes of incontinence with additional medical treatment. No postoperative complications were encountered. CONCLUSION: TVT-O alone was successful in maintaining long-term continence in 40% of the dogs. Additional postoperative medical treatment was effective in restoring continence in another 40% of the dogs. CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE: TVT-O provides an alternative treatment of USMI in female dogs that is safe and less invasive than standard surgical techniques. [less ▲]

A 1-y-old sterilized queen was presented for dysuria. Abdominal palpation elicited pain and revealed a firm, well-circumscribed mass dorsal to the bladder. Ultrasonography confirmed a caudal fluid filled abdominal structure extending into the pelvic cavity, displacing the colon dorsally and the urethra ventrally. Retrograde vagino-urethrography showed contrast in the vestibule, urethra and urinary bladder. Imperforate membrane at the vestibulo-vaginal junction with secondary vaginal distension was highly suspected. During surgery, a distended by purulent content vagina was observed, sub-total vaginectomy was performed. Bacterial culture showed Enterobacter cloacae. Definitive diagnosis of imperforate hymen is usually achieved by vaginoscopy. Retrograde vagino-urethrography can be used in some cases. This is the first report of imperforate hymen in the queen and also is the first case of pyocolpos. Origin of infection remains unclear. Contamination during neutering or via partial perforation of the hymen may be suspected. Enterobacter cloacae is a Gram - opportunistic pathogen of the urogenital tract of humans and animals. It is involved in multidrug-resistance spreading but its prevalence and clinical impact in veterinary medicine is unknown. In conclusion, this first report of persistent hymen in the queen highlights vagino-urethrography usefulness for diagnosing imperforate hymen in small patients, as well as the inclusion of congenital abnormality in the differential diagnosis of dysuria and the feasibility of sub-total vaginectomy by abdominal approach. Finally, it raises the question of Enterobacter cloacae’s implication in nosocomial infection in veterinary medicine. [less ▲]

Urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence (USMI) is the most common cause of acquired urinary incontinence in female dogs. Surgery is recommended if the animal does not respond to medical treatment or becomes refractory, if side effects develop or if owners are reluctant to administer long-term medication. Stress urinary incontinence in women is mainly treated surgically by vaginal placement of suburethral slings, including the transobturator vaginal tape inside out. This technique was reported in female dogs in 2010 and short-term results were promising. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of the TVT-O in female dogs. TVT-O tape was inserted in 12 incontinent bitches diagnosed with USMI. Follow-up information was evaluated by a telephone questionnaire and a continence score was attributed. One year after surgery, 7 of 12 dogs were completely continent (58%). Two dogs were removed from the long-term analysis (1 dead and 1 lost). At a median follow-up time of 85 months (range 28 to 95 months), 4 /10 dogs were completely continent without medical treatment. Incontinence recurred in 6 dogs at a median time of 2 months after surgery (range 1 to 20 months). Among those, 4/6 regained continence and 2/6 had sporadic episodes of incontinence, with additional medical treatment. No postoperative complications were encountered. TVT-O alone was successful in maintaining long term continence in 40% of the dogs. Additional postoperative medical treatment was effective in restoring continence in another 40 % of dogs. TVT-O provides an alternative treatment of USMI in female dogs, that is safe and less invasive than standard surgical techniques. [less ▲]

Cervical traumas are common in dogs as a consequence of bite injuries, road traffic accidents, choke chains, and gunshot injuries.1 Penetrating wounds of the cervical region may be a disaster given the number of vital structures present in the area. Laryngeal paralysis is the inability to abduct the arytenoid cartilages. Traumatic damage to the vagus or recurrent laryngeal nerve is identified as a possible cause of acquired laryngeal paralysis.2 However, its occurrence remains rare. [less ▲]

A 1-year-old queen was presented for dysuria, strangurya and abdominal discomfort. She had been ovariectomized or potentially ovariohysterectomized at 6 months of age. Abdominal palpation elicited pain and revealed a firm, well-circumscribed mass dorsal to the bladder. No vulvar discharge was observed and the rest of the clinical examination was unremarkable. Ultrasonography confirmed a caudal fluid filled abdominal structure (5cm X 2.5cm) extending into the pelvic cavity, displacing the colon dorsally and the urethra ventrally. No ovarian remnant could be found. Vaginoscopy was not performed due to unavailable small diameter size endoscope. Retrograde vagino-urethrography showed contrast in the vestibule, urethra and urinary bladder, while no contrast could be observed in the vagina. At that stage, an imperforate membrane at the vestibulo-vaginal junction with secondary vaginal distension was highly suspected. During surgery, complete ovariohysterectomy, including removal of the uterine body, was confirmed and a distended, but otherwise normal looking, vagina was observed. Total vaginectomy was performed and the purulent content was swabbed for bacteriology. Post-operative treatment included amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (20mg/kg PO BID), meloxicam for a week (0,1mg/kg PO SID). Enterobacter cloacae was isolated and antibiotherapy was changed into a marbofloxacin administration for 2 weeks (5mg/kg PO SID), according to culture sensitivity. The queen recovered without any major complication. Definitive diagnosis of imperforate hymen is usually achieved by vaginoscopy, which is the most common complementary exam that can be performed either with an endoscope or a speculum. Due to technical limitation such as scope size, retrograde vagino-urethrography can be used to confirm a suspected blind vestibule. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of an imperforate hymen in the queen and the first case of pyocolpos in that species. Cases of imperforate hymen have been described in young girls, cows, buffaloes and bitches. A complete persistent hymen is one of the many congenital abnormalities of the vestibulo-vaginal junction or the vestibular area. The hymen is formed by the fusion of the Müllerian ducts with the urogenital sinus during embryo development and usually disappears before birth. In our case, the origin of the bacterial infection remains unclear. Contamination during neutering may be suspected. However, the 6-month delay before clinical onset makes it rather unlikely. Alternatively, an ascending contamination via partial perforation of the hymen, that somehow re-sealed afterwards, seems more likely as it has already been speculated in the bitch. Enterobacter cloacae, a Gram-negative commensal flora of the digestive system of humans and animals was identified. It is an opportunistic pathogen of the urogenital tract and has been involved in multidrug-resistance spreading. It over-expresses chromosomic cephalosporinases leading to resistance to third generation cephalosporins. It may also carry genes for extended-spectrum -lactamase or even carbapenemase. They are naturally resistant to aminopenicillins, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, first and second generation cephalosporins. They are naturally sensitive to aminosids, quinolones, tetracyclins and trimethoprime-sulfonamides. In the present case, it was resistant to cefovecin, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, trimethoprim/sulfonamide, sensitive to gentamicin and marbofloxacin but intermediate to enrofloxacin. Enterobacter cloacae has been isolated from intra-venous catheters in human hospitals and reported as responsible for nosocomial epidemics. As far as we know, a similar role in veterinary medicine has not yet been reported. Actually, little is known about Enterobacter cloacae’s prevalence and clinical impact in veterinary medicine compared to human medicine. Epidemiological surveys should be conducted to answer these interrogations. In conclusion, this first report of a persistent hymen in the queen highlights vagino-urethrography usefulness for diagnosing imperforate hymen in small patients, as well as the inclusion of congenital abnormality in the differential diagnosis of dysuria. Finally, it raises the question of Enterobacter cloacae’s implication in nosocomial infection in veterinary medicine. [less ▲]

A six-month-old neutered male German shepherd dog with aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) was premedicated with methadone, medetomidine and then fentanyl; anaesthesia was induced with propofol and maintained with infusions of medetomidine and fentanyl and isoflurane in oxygen. Hartmann’s solution and noradrenaline were administered for cardiovascular support. Arterial pressure was measured using Doppler technique in both metacarpal arteries and invasive technique in both dorsal pedal arteries. During ARSA occlusion test, severe hypotension (30 mmHg) in the right forelimb, bradycardia (45 bpm) and advanced atrioventricular blocks (AVB) were observed. The occlusion test was interrupted; atropine was administered; cardiovascular parameters, except AVB, were normalised; medetomidine and noradrenaline were interrupted. Other two attempts of ARSA occlusion generated similar cardiovascular side effects. The surgical correction was precluded and the animal was recovered from anaesthesia. This case indicates that ARSA occlusion can be followed by severe arrhythmias and focus on the management of these alterations. [less ▲]
