Abstract:

The study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of decellularised bovine pericardium for hernioplasty in dogs. Six clinical cases of dogs irrespective of age, sex, breed and having hernia on the ventral abdomen presented to the Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, Mannuthy and University Veterinary Hospital, Kokkalai were selected for the study. The dogs that were included in the study underwent a detailed general and clinical examination to confirm the location and nature of hernia. Physiological, haematological and biochemical examination was done pre-operatively to assess the patient for undergoing surgery. The treatment plan adopted following the diagnosis of hernia was to correct the hernia by hernioplasty using decellularised bovine pericardium. The surgical correction was performed under general anaesthesia. Under general anaesthesia, the hernial contents were reduced and the decellularised bovine pericardium trimmed to the size of the defect, was sutured to the margins in simple interrupted pattern as an inlay graft. Detailed general, clinical, haematological and biochemical evaluation was performed pre-operatively on day zero and post-operatively on 7th, 14th, 30th and 60th day. Clinical examination revealed progression of complete healing in five out of six dogs during the observation period. The tissue changes observed at the surgical site by 7th day post-operative period were oedema, pain and warmth. Complications like formation of seroma at the surgical site, delayed wound healing and recurrence of hernia were observed during the observation period. Result of the study concluded that decellularised bovine pericardium could be used as a biological substitute for the correction of hernia in clinical conditions. Although variations in the haematological and biochemical parameters were noticed during the observation period all were within the normal range. The observations suggested that the implantation of decellularised bovine pericardium did result in any physiological disturbances and proved its efficacy in correcting the hernia as biological substitute in clinical conditions.
