Angiographic aspect of the distal forelimb in donkeys (Equus asinus) used for animal traction

Abstract: http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/2175-7925.2009v22n4p163The asinine species was originated thousands of years ago from the same branch of domestic equine. Asinines have been undergoing a great adaptation resulting in different characteristics observed in their populations around the world. In the northeastern region of Brazil, they play an essential role in the economy of local families. Due to a large number of locomotor disorders and a lacN of professional care for these animals, a radiographic study of the distal … Show more

“…A menor utilização de asininos está muito mais associada à falta de oportunidade de possuir um equino ou muar, do que propriamente a uma escolha. Apenas em dois estudos, o número de asininos empregados no trabalho de tração de carroças foi superior ao de equinos e muares (Alves et al, 2009;Chaves et al, 2011). Assim, os jumentos são preferencialmente utilizados como reprodutores na produção de muares, condição que os valoriza como reprodutores e incrementa a comercialização de híbridos (muares) destinados à tração.…”

“…There is little information on the radiological anatomy of donkey feet ( 13 15 ), and therefore there has been a tendency to apply an equine model to help in the diagnostic interpretation ( 4 , 7 ).…”

“…Few studies have been conducted on evaluating the radiographic appearance of the donkey digit, either in healthy or laminitic animals ( 4 , 14 ), and few studies have been carried out on the normal aspect of the venogram in healthy donkeys ( 13 , 17 ) and with evidence of laminitis ( 18 ).…”

“…The exposure settings while using a traditional radiographic unit are 40-60 kV peak and 20-30 mAs and 60-80 cm of focal film distance (Boosman et al 1989;Singh et al 1994;Redden 2001;Alves et al 2009;Baldwin & Pollitt 2010;Rucker 2010a). Cattle venogram is performed in lateromedial view by keeping the outer claw on the cassette, whereas the inner claw is pulled backwards and kept in place using a wooden block; 65 dorsopalmar or dorsoplantar with the cassette placed above the hoof; dorsolateral-palmaromedial or dorsolateral-plantaromedial with the cassette placed lateral or medial to the digits (Singh et al 1994;Rafael et al 2011) (Figure 6).…”

“…Approximately 65%À75% of ruminant (bovine, sheep and goat) and 35%À43% of horse populations are treated for foot diseases each year in Europe and South America (Brunner et al 2008;Alves et al 2009). Foot diseases are associated with laminitis and ulcers (Feenstra et al 1983;Peterse 1985;Boosman et al 1989;Brunner et al 2008;Alves et al 2009). Equines and ruminants play an important socioeconomic role in South America and the diagnosis of foot disorders gets more prevalence every year (Brunner et al 2008).…”
