Abstract

Reason for performing study: Two forms of dynamic upper respiratory tract obstruction affecting racehorses that involve the soft palate have been described: palatal instability (PI) and dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP). Observation of DDSP is straight forward in that it is an all or...

Abstract

In contrast to other athletic species such as people and greyhounds, which switch from nasal breathing at rest to oral breathing during exercise, the horse is an obligate nasal breather even during strenuous exercise. Dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) is a condition that occurs during...

Abstract

The objectives of this report were to describe the occurrence and features of dynamic ventrorostral displacement of the dorsal laryngeal mucosa (VRDDLM) in a group of Thoroughbred horses presented for investigation of poor performance and/or abnormal respiratory noise. Records from 600, dynamic,...

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: The relationship between dorsal displacement of the soft palate (DDSP) and swallowing is unclear. Objective: To quantify the relationship between DDSP and swallowing in horses at exercise. Hypotheses: The frequency of swallowing increases immediately prior to DDSP in ...

Abstract

Any factors that increase negative pressure in the upper respiratory tract (URT) can influence its mechanics. The aim of this report was to describe the results of URT diagnostic evaluation with overground endoscopy in sport and pleasure horses. The URT and plasma lactate levels were evaluated...

Abstract

The disorders of the upper airways are most often responsible for respiratory sounds and are a frequent cause of poor performance or exercise intolerance in horses. They may be present at rest or appear with exercise, and they can be diagnosed with endoscopy. This paper presents an overview of the...

Abstract

Obstructive upper airway diseases are an important cause of poor performance in athletic horses. The present study aimed to determine the prevalence of common URT abnormalities (pharyngeal lymphoid hyperplasia - PLH, dorsal displacement of the soft palate - DDSP and recurrent laryngeal neuropathy - ...
