Abstract:
The present study was conducted on twenty seven clinically healthy female goats aging about 1-2 years and weighing in between 16-20 kg. The experimental animals were randomly divided into three groups; A, B and C (n=9x3). In all the animals laparotomy was made on the middle of the left flank under xylazine hydrochloride anesthesia intramuscularly and linear infiltration of 2% xylocaine hydrochloride locally. Peritoneum and muscles were repaired with 2/0 chromic catgut, 2/0 black braided silk and 2/0 mercerized cotton threads n animals of group A, B and C respectively. The observation was made on the basis of macroscopic and microscopic studies of the tissue from the repaired area on 10th, 20th and 30th post-operative days. The healing was marked normal grossly and histologically with all these sutures, a few nodules and mild adhesions were detected with peritoneum in few animals (goat No. 4, 6 and 8) of group A (repairing with 2/0 chromic catgut). This type of pathological lesions could not be detected grossly and historically after the use of 2/0 black braided silk and 2/0 mercerized cotton threads in group B and C respectively. There was lack of mortality after the surgery in any group. Though, all these three suturing materials are worthy for internal use in goats but the superiority may be graded as 2/0 black braided silk, 2/0 mercerized cotton thread and 2/0 chromic catgut respectively. Thus, these last two suturing materials may be used clinically in caprine internally wherever needed in goats for the poor persons of the society.
