Abstract:

Torsion of uterus is a common form of maternal dystocia in bovines. Both maternal and fetal causes are attributed to the etiology of uterine torsion. The entire length of pregnant uterine horn rotates on its longitudinal axis to the left (anticlockwise) or right side (clockwise) along with uterine body, cervix and cranial vagina mostly. In severe cases of uterine torsion, there is vascular compromise to foetus resulting in death of fetus in utero. Since uterine torsion frequently occurs during parturition, there is twisting of birth canal so delivery of fetus cannot occur without external aids. Uterine torsion is a diagnostic dilemma for Veterinarians and a difficult obstetric procedure for less experienced persons. Prognosis and future fertility of dam depends on severity and duration of uterine torsion and methods of handling. Diagnostic evaluation of the condition continues to be transrectal palpation of the broad ligaments which rotate along with the rotating uterus. The success of management of the condition lies in the correct and timely diagnosis and early referral to referral centers.
