Boshra Elyasi; Mohammad Nasrollahzadeh Masouleh; Alireza Jahandideh

Volume 14, Issue 9 , September 2023, , Pages 495-499

  Ovariohysterectomy (OHE) is one of the most common surgeries in veterinary medicine. Although this surgical method has several advantages, it can alter the function of various organs such as heart. The present study investigated the effect of OHE on cardiac functions using M-mode echocardiography. A ...  Read More

Evaluation of right ventricle echocardiographic variables in apparently healthy domestic shorthair cats

Saeed Heydaryan; Seyed Javad Ahmadpanahi; Dariush Shirani; Mohammad Molazem; Yasamin Vali

Volume 14, Issue 9 , September 2023, , Pages 501-506

  Right ventricular structural and functional changes result from many cardiovascular disorders in cats. Accordingly, echocardiographic evaluation of the size and function of the right ventricle (RV) provides important prognostic information in many conditions affecting the right heart. Therefore, detection ...  Read More

Echocardiographic assessment of right ventricular blood flow and tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion in apparently healthy domestic short-haired cats

Zahra Darabizadeh; Keivan Keramati; Dariush Shirani; Mohammad Molazem; Saeed Heydaryan; Yasamin Vali

Volume 14, Issue 5 , May 2023, , Pages 275-279

  Right ventricular parameters change in many cardiovascular diseases; so, the presence of normal right ventricular parameters is necessary to diagnose these diseases. Ten clinically healthy adult domestic short-haired cats including six males and four females in the range of 2.70 to 4.80 kg were studied ...  Read More

Assessing the cardiac valves conditions in athletic horses with poor performance

Hossein Khalesi; Mehdi Sakha; Abbas Veshkini; Ali Rezakhani

Volume 13, Issue 3 , September 2022, , Pages 423-429

  Heart murmurs and valvular regurgitation are common in horses and often have no effect on their performance. However, when structural changes occur in the heart size, they can affect performance adversely. This study aimed to examine the correlation between cardiac valves disease and poor performance ...  Read More

Echocardiographic assessment of intravenous administration of medetomidine and xylazine hydrochloride at different sedative doses in one-humped camel calves (Camelus dromedarious)

Mohammad Reza Esmaili Nejad; Majid Masoudifard; Omid Azari; Ehsanollah Sakhaee; Nima Ghalekhani

Volume 13, Issue 1 , March 2022, , Pages 39-46

  Echocardiography illustrates a convenient and noninvasive tool for measuring cardiac output (CO) changes after administration of sedative drugs, but it is unknown in camelids practice. The aim of present study was to investigate echocardiographic effects of intravenous (IV) injection of medetomidine ...  Read More

Two-dimensional and M-mode echocardiographic parameters in Ghezel sheep

Ali Roustaei; Seyed Mohammad Hashemiasl; Bahram Dalir-Naghadeh; Majid Masoudifard

Volume 12, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 349-355

  Echocardiography is a non-invasive method of cardiac evaluation in most species. Echocardiographic reference parameters are poorly documented in sheep and not documented in Ghezel sheep. The purpose of this study was to determine reference ranges of normal echocardiographic parameters using two-dimensional ...  Read More

Patent ductus arteriosus in a lamb: A case report

Afshin Jafari Dehkordi; Farzaneh Hoseini

Volume 7, Issue 1 , March 2016, , Pages 85-88

  Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a persistent patency of a vessel normally present in the fetus that connects the pulmonary arterial system to the aorta. The ductus arteriosus fails to close at birth when breathing commences and placental blood circulation is removed. Closure of the ductus arteriosus ...  Read More
