Management of chronic recurrent prepartum cervico-vaginal prolapse with multiple lacerations in a crossbred cow
Keywords:cervico-vaginal prolapse, lacerations, recurrent, Buhner suture, infusion set
Prepartum prolapse of vagina or vagina along with cervix is an obstetrical emergency arising as a result of number of factors, the most common being hormonal imbalances. Chronic cervicovaginal prolapse may have a genetic trend. In this report we received an emergency at our university referral hospital with a history of recurrent prolapse mass appearing through vulva during a late gestation in a cow. Prolapse mass was reduced, reposed and retained under epidural anesthesia. All the lacerations were sutured with catgut and Buhner’s suture, using infusion set, was applied on vulvar commissures for a period of 10 days. Also, the supportive therapy was advised. The present clinical article reports successful management of chronic recurrent pre-partum prolapse with lacerations in a cow.
