Abstract:

A five year old crossbred Jersey cow weighing about 300kg was presented with the history of deep avulsion wound on the left side of hip region occurred due to animal hit on the steel thatched roof. Clinical examination revealed deep avulsion wound involving skin and underlying muscles of the left hip region with non opposing irregular edges due to exposure of left wing of ilium bone and loses of skin. The avulsion wound was thoroughly lavaged with 0.1 % chlorhexidine solution and the hair around the wound was shaved and prepared aseptically for surgical opposition. Ostectomy of portion of left wing of ilium bone was performed to oppose the wound edges under high epidural anaesthesia and local infiltration using 2% lignocaine hydrochloride. Than the wound edges were debrided and apposed with sterile silk by simple interrupted suture pattern. Postoperatively the animal was administered with broad spectrum antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs for seven days with regular wound lavaging and dressing. The Cutaneous sutures were removed on tenth post operative day and the animal made uneventful recovery without affecting weight bearing in the particular limb. Ostectomy of ilium bone in a non oppositional wound edges under Lignocaine analgesia were found to be safer, effective and adaptable under field conditions.
