Splenic Torsion in a 5 year-old Doberman

Other Titles

Abstract

A 5 year-old, intact male Doberman Pinscher was referred to Cornell's Emergency and Critical Care Service for evaluation of a suspected splenic torsion. The patient had a history of vomiting several times, and appearing restless at home the day prior to presentation. On physical examination, the patient was bright, alert, and responsive. His vital parameters were within normal limits. The rest of his general physical exam was unremarkable. Abdominal radiographs from the referring hospital revealed an abnormally positioned spleen. A focused ultrasound of the spleen was performed, which showed signs consistent with a segmental splenic torsion. The patient underwent an abdominal exploratory, complete splenectomy, and prophylactic gastropexy. He recovered uneventfully from anesthesia, and was discharged to the care of his owner with a good prognosis. This paper will discuss the splenic torsion, along with its diagnosis and treatment.
