Example text

The trachea was normal in position. The diaphragm was intact. The stomach was distended and filled with ingesta. Abdomi- 21 nal contrast was lacking, probably because of the age-dependent absence of peritoneal fat; however, the presence of peritoneal fluid was considered. Differential diagnosis: The radiographic changes were typical for those associated with thoracic trauma. On the lateral view, the subcutaneous emphysema caused an uneven fluid density, which when superimposed over the fat in the falciform ligament suggested a peritonitis (arrows).

Following the trauma, he had run away and had been missing for the intervening 10 days. He had only returned home on the day of presentation. Treatment/Management: This case was unusual since the history suggested that the cat had been injured 10 days prior to presentation for treatment. It illustrates how survival can be achieved if one lung remains functional despite the open pneumothorax and severe injury to one chest wall. Physical examination: Palpation of the thorax indicated marked abnormality in the region of the sternum with severe soft tissue swelling.

Pleural fluid was difficult to evaluate because of the cat’s obesity. Treatment/Management: The fracture plus identification of the single pellet indicated a gunshot wound resulting from a high-pressure airgun. “Blimp” recovered and returned to his life of leisure. Comments: The cat’s obesity had resulted in the deposition of fat adjacent to the parietal pleura making the detection of minimal pleural fluid impossible. Lack of inspiration in this obese patient made determination of the severity of lung injury impossible.
