Equine emergency colic surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed. Small colon obstructions (as the cause of the exploratory celiotomy) are relatively infrequently diagnosed (2 5%). The most frequently seen small colon problems are small colon impactions, a small colon faecalith, small colon enterolith(s), small colon lipomas and small colon foreign bodies. Less frequently, a diagnosis of rents in the small colon mesentery, damage to the small colon vascular supply after a foaling accident or intramural masses are made.
