Complications associated with left dorsal displacement of the large colon in the horse


Complications associated with left dorsal displacement of the large colon in the horse



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 187(12): 1379-1380

PMID: 4086361

Four horses operated on for left dorsal displacement of the large colon (LDDLC) had major intraoperative or postoperative complications. One horse was euthanatized during surgery because of extensive necrosis of the large colon. Three horses that were discharged after surgical correction of LDDLC were readmitted with signs of abdominal pain between 5 weeks and 13 months after surgery. Two horses had recurrence of LDDLC, and the third horse had an omental adhesion attached to and obstructing the pelvic flexure. The displacements were corrected, the adhesion was broken down, and the horses were discharged. One horse was readmitted a third time 16 months after the second surgery and required a third surgical correction of LDDLC.
