Abstract

Dogs with pulmonary hypertension following administration of thiacetarsamide adulticide for Dirofilaria immitis infection were given antihistamine treatment under anaesthesia. Neither diphenhydramine (an H1 blocker) nor cimetidine (an H2 blocker) reduced pulmonary arterial pressure (PPA) at...

Abstract

Because melarsomine dihydrochloride (RM340) has been shown to be more effective in killing D. immitis than the traditional approved adulticide, thiacetarsamide, an attempt was made to determine whether this new adulticide induced more severe lung disease. Before adulticide treatment, 32 dogs with...

Abstract

Pulmonary hypertension associated with myointimal proliferation develops in chronic Dirofilaria immitis infection. This study correlated changes in pulmonary artery haemodynamics and arteriograms with vascular alterations examined with scanning and light microscopy (SEM, LM) during infection and...

Abstract

Studies in dogs with Dirofilaria infection but without the clinical cardiopulmonary signs of heartworm disease or pulmonary hypertension, demonstrated that an active, reversible pulmonary hypertensive response was present before the development of pulmonary hypertension.

Abstract

Seven dogs were inoculated s/c with 50 infective D. immitis larvae and treated with arsenamide, dithiazinine iodide and tetramisole 12 months later. Cardiopulmonary function was measured before and 6 and 12 months after infection and 7 and 12 months after treatment. Pulmonary hypertension (26.4...

Abstract

Cardiopulmonary function in Beagles that had been infected 18 months previously with 100 infective Dirofilaria immitis larvae was studied before and after an exercise programme. The treadmill exercise programme lasted for 2.5 months at 5 days/week until the dogs were running for 20 min at 11.3 km/h ...

Abstract

The ability of aspirin to block arteriosclerosis during chronic, low-level injury to pulmonary arteries was studied in 3 groups of 7 dogs after injury produced by the transplantation of 28 adult D. immitis into each dog. Control group A received no treatment; group B received no treatment for 6...

Abstract

Clinical manifestations of Dirofilaria immitis infection are reviewed under the headings pathophysiology and thoracic radiographic signs pulmonary thromboembolic disease and arterial obstruction, preadulticide thromboembolic complications, pneumonitis associated with occult heartworm diseas,...

Abstract

Cats experimentally infected with Dirofilaria immitis were given aspirin at 0 or 97.5 mg twice a week for 5 months, or at a dosage to prevent in vitro platelet aggregation. A 4th group of uninfected cats served as controls. PM examination after 5 months showed that all cats in the 3 infected groups ...
