Surgical management of oropharyngeal diverticulum in a hen (Gallus gallus domesticus)
Biswadeep Jena, Sagar Saho and Shivani Soni
A hen was presented with a soft swelling caudo-ventral to the lower beak. Physical examination revealed presence of a soft pouch with hard granular structures inside. Radiograph examination revealed radiolucent gas filled structure interspersed with radiopaque granular structures. The mass was excised under intranasal sedation (Midazolam @6mg/Kg bodyweight). Obligation to proper surgical techniques and maintenance of adequate postoperative measures rewarded with uneventful recovery.
