Abstract

Exercise induced intermittent dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) is a common cause of airway obstruction and poor performance in racehorses. The definite etiology is still unclear, but through an experimental model, a role in the development of this condition was identified in the...

Abstract

Persistent dorsal displacement of the soft palate (pDDSP) is a relatively rare equine disorder. This case series reports histories and clinical findings in 8 cases of pDDSP, and outcome after treatment of concurrent epiglottic entrapment (n=3), laryngeal tie-forward (n=6)±laser staphylectomy (n=2), ...

Abstract

Objective - To determine the effects of hypoglossal nerve block and electrical stimulation of the thyrohyoideus muscles on position of the larynx and hyoid apparatus in resting horses. Animals - 16 healthy horses that underwent hypoglossal nerve block and 5 healthy horses that underwent electrical...

Abstract

Recent work on the cause of the dorsal displacement of the soft palate that occurs with sudden expiration dyspnoea in racehorses has indicated the involvement of the thyrohyoid muscles beween the larynx and the tongue. Resection of these muscles has proved to be a satisfactory surgical approach.

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) is one of the most common obstructive conditions of the upper respiratory tract in the racehorse. This condition has a complex aetiology which may be caused or exacerbated by pharyngeal inflammation. Additionally, lower...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Dysfunction of the muscles is implicated in the pathogenesis of intermittent dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) in exercising horses. The histological features of normal equine soft palate muscles have not been previously described. Objective: To describe...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) is a common condition in racehorses for which various surgical treatments are often performed. In light of recent findings that suggested the position of the larynx may influence the occurrence of DDSP, we investigated...

Abstract

This study was undertaken to investigate the role of the thyrohyoid muscles in the pathogenesis of dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) in horses during exercise so that management of this condition could be enhanced. It was hypothesized that the thyrohyoid muscles play an important role...

Abstract

Neuropathies of pharyngeal branches of glossopharyngeal and vagus are often associated with guttural pouches diseases; however, these branches of injury due to stylopharyngeus muscle compression are not reported. A case was reported of a quarter horse mare, 8 years old, 450 kg, presenting dyspnea...
