Abstract:

Diagnostic imaging enabled the surgeon for the visual evaluation of normal and abnormal anatomy of the region and thus helped in accurate diagnosis of many diseases. Tracheobronchoscopy was found more feasible and advantageous in diagnosis of respiratory disease as compared with that of physical examination, haematology and radiography and allows descriptive or photographic documentation of findings. It has advantage of providing accurate diagnosis through biopsy, cytological examination and fluid estimations in dog. The tracheobronchoscopy was performed by fiberscope (Olympus GIF type XP 20)having an ultra-slim insertion tube of 7.9 mm outer diameterand 102 cm working length with 2.0 mm width instrument channel. The dog was placed in sternal recumbent position after proper anaesthesia and the neck was supported with the soft cushion. The tracheal mucus membrane was found pink (37 cases) to red (23 cases) in color with fine network of sub mucosal vessels and was glistering. The dorsal tracheal membrane was found tight in all the cases.The mean distance of epiglottis from upper incisors was found 9.77 ± 0.33, 15.05 ± 0.35 and 17.67 ± 0.44 cm in small, medium and large sized dogs respectively.The distance of part was significantly different (P< 0.05) in small, medium and large size dogs, respectively. The mean distance (cm) of carina from upper incisors was measured as 31.87± 0.96, 40.65 ± 0.33 and 53.57± 0.90 cm in small, medium and large sized dog respectively.
