Mallikarjun G and Dilipkumar D
The present study was conducted in 24 clinical cases of dogs which were presented to the Department of Surgery and Radiology, Veterinary College Bidar and Agriculture Product Marketing centre (APMC) Hospital Bidar for ovariohysterectomy.The animals were randomly divided into four groups with six animals each. Chromic catgut, PGA, PG 910 and PDS sutures were implanted to close the laparotomy wound in group I, II, III and IV respectively and tissue reaction were compared with these suture materials on 14th day using TEM. Animals were premedicated with atropine sulphate @ 0.045 mg/kg body weight i/m. Xylazine hydrochloride @ 1 mg/kg and ketamine @ 10 mg/kg mixture in a single syringe administered as single induction bolus and anesthesia maintained with incremental doses of xylazine - ketamine anesthesia by i/v route. The animals were placed in left lateral recumbency. In the present study, tissue reaction was observed to all four suture materials. PDS and PG 910 suture material showed less pronounced reaction when compared to the reaction shown towards PGA and chromic catgut.
