Traumatic Pericarditis in Cattle: Risk Factors, Clinical Features and Ultrasonographic Findings

Traumatic Pericarditis in Cattle: Risk Factors, Clinical Features and Ultrasonographic Findings

Pericarditis is an inflammation of the pericardium with accumulation of serous or fibrinous inflammatory products. In cattle, it is always a common sequel to traumatic perforation of the reticular wall, diaphragm and pericardial sac by metallic and non-metallic sharp foreign body. A case series study was conducted between April, 2014 and December, 2015 in cattle herds in Mansoura, Egypt to determine the risk factors, clinical features and ultrasonographic findings of traumatic pericarditis. Forty cattle expressing clinical signs of cardiac problems were selected and thorough clinically examined. Statistical analysis using multivariable logistic regression showed that magnet administration, positive pain test, history of abrupt and sudden milk drop and hearing grunt were significantly associated with traumatic pericarditis in cattle.
