endometrial biopsy
punch biopsy specimens obtained in the mare and cow by passing the instrument through the cervix and controlling the site of the biopsy by a hand in the rectum.
endometrial cups
ulcer-like structures in the endometrium of the pregnant mare. They are produced by the fetus but become detached from it. Their function is to produce equine gonadotropin, formerly PMSG.
endometrial curettage
débridement of the endometrium by metal curette is not practiced in animals but a chemical equivalent, by the infusion of irritant substances, is used instead.
endometrial cyst
in cows and ewes near caruncles; develop during uterine involution due to adhesions from the caruncle; no clinical importance.
cystic endometrial hyperplasia
pathological hyperplasia of endometrium, as distinct from the physiological state, due in most instances to excessive and prolonged estrogenic stimulation; characterized by thickening of the endometrium, development of mucus-filled glands and the accumulation of mucus in the lumen of the uterus. Associated with cystic ovarian disease in cows. In ewes it is usually due to prolonged low level intake of phyto-estrogens, e.g. on subterranean clover pasture. It may be a precursor of or associated with pyometra, especially in the dog where the hormonal cause is progesterone. See also pyometra.
endometrial folds
in the mare these run the length of the uterus as observed by fiberscope.
endometrial glands
provide uterine fluid (histotrophe) on which the developing fetus depends for subsistence during its first few days of existence.
endometrial hyperplasia with pyometra
see cystic endometrial hyperplasia.
endometrial polyp
found in the bitch and may cause prolapse of the affected horn with the polyp visible in the vagina.
endometrial regeneration
postpartum return to normal of the endometrium, e.g. in cows by the sloughing of superficial layers of caruncles.
