Sažetak

Uterine torsion is a common form of dystocia in cattle often associatedwith an oversized fetus. Cows are considered to be more susceptible to this condition than other domestic animals. On the basis of our current clinical practices, a novel retorsion method called “Ball rolling” has been developed to correct uterine torsion. In order to evaluate the effect of this new method, a total of 263 uterine torsion cases admitted to our animal hospital in the past 5 years were investigated, of which 79 cases were treated with the conventional rolling method and 184 cases were subjected to the “Ball rolling” method. In our “Ball rolling” method, the animals were immobilized by tying their forelegs, whereas their hind legs are left loosened, and are rolled like a ball towards the torsion direction to bring the uterus back into its physiological position. Then the clinical symptoms of the animals were recorded using basic physiological indicators, such as pulse, the degree of amniotic fluid choke rate and respiratory rate, pulse, and cervical injury bleeding. On the basis of the evaluation of the outcome, the parturient cows subjected to the “Ball rolling” method recovered faster with higher fetus survival rate.
