Post cervical uterine torsion in a Mecheri ewe

A Natarajan, G Kavin and V Manojkumar
Dystocia due to uterine torsion occurs as a rare event in ewes. Uterine torsion is the rotation of gravid uterus on its own axis. The present case deals with the successful management of post cervical uterine torsion in a Mecheri sheep at field level. A four-year-old full-term pluriparous ewe was presented with a history of severe abdomen straining, frequent lying down and getting up and inability to deliver the lamb. On clinical examination, animal was dull and depressed, had intermittent abdominal straining and no discharge from vulva. On per-vaginal examination, anterior vagina was found stenosed, cranial vaginal mucosa was found spirally twisted towards the right and the cervix was not palpated. The case was diagnosed as post cervical uterine torsion above 180°. Detorsion was done by Schaffer’s method and a live male fetus was relieved by traction.
