Abstract:
Choke is one of the emergency conditions of bovine alimentary tract requiring surgical intervention. Till date various methods of foreign body retrieval were on record. We invented a novel and minimally invasive technique of retrieving foreign body from oesophagus. 6 cattle presented to our clinic with signs of acute oesophageal obstruction at various levels after ingesting various types of vegetables/fruits. They showed signs of acute bloat, dyspnoea, restlessness and severe ptyalism. In all, futile attempts were made to manually retrieve foreign bodies. Hence, foreign bodies were removed by using a specially designed needle (of length 8 - 10 cm and diameter 1.3 - 1.4 mm) and a wire that was fixed into the foreign body and retrieved orally.
