Clinical management of genital prolapse in Bovine

Author(s): KH Parmar
Genital prolapse is a descent of one or more of the pelvic structures (bladder, uterus and vagina) from the normal anatomical position toward or through the vaginal opening. Two distinct types of prolapse occur in the reproductive tract of cattle: uterine and vaginal. It is an emergency condition and should be managed before excessive edema, mucosal trauma, contamination and fatal haemorrhage lead to a grave prognosis. The clinically genital prolapse can be managed by reduction, repositioning and retention. The Button and Buhner’s suture techniques are reported to be effective to retain the prolapse mass with minimum post-operative complications however the use of truss facilitates temporary retention of the prolapse. The mattress suture technique causes maximum post-operative complications like straining, oedema, tearing of vulvlar lips with reoccurrence of prolapse in all the animals. However, the salvage hysterectomy on ethical and philanthropic ground is carried out to alleviate suffering and relieving pain.
