Abstract:

The present study was conducted in 30 clinical cases related to musculoskeletal disorders specific to lameness in bovine, presented to the Department of Veterinary Surgery and Radiology, GADVASU, Ludhiana from August 2015 to July 2017. The animals suffering from musculoskeletal abnormalities specific to lameness were divided into five major groups viz. Group-1 tendon rupture and partial tear (n=6), Group 2-tendon and tendon sheath affections (n=18), Group 3-affection of joint (n=1), Group 4-abscess (n=2) and Group 5-bone affections (n=3). Detailed signalment, history, gait abnormalities, physical examination, flexion test and hematobiochemical parameters were recorded and compared to the values of normal animals. A 7-12 MHz transducer was used for evaluation of the tendons, ligaments and joints in bovine. Ultrasonography, elastography and radiography (if required) were conducted on all the animals. It was concluded that ultrasonography is important for the diagnosis of tendon and tendon sheath affection, hematoma, abscess and joint affection in bovine. Elastography was used to assess the mechanical properties of tendons qualitatively and quantitatively. It allowed the detection of tissue strain and provided valuable mechanical information about bovine tendon injuries.
