cecal dilatation
a disease of cows which occurs soon after calving characterized by moderate abdominal pain, reduction in fecal volume, and a distended viscus in the upper right flank detectable externally or by rectal examination. Called also cecal dilatation and torsion but the circulation of the organ is rarely compromised. In horses it is usually part of tympany of the large intestine. See flatulent colic.
cecal dilatation and torsion
see cecal dilatation (above).
cecal impaction
in the horse can prove to be a serious problem because of the difficulty of moving a large volume of dry ingesta from such a large atonic viscus. The clinical picture is one of continuous low-grade colic with scant feces. A feature of mucoid enteropathy in rabbits.
cecal inflammation
see cecitis.
cecal intussusception
see intestinal obstruction colic, intussusception.
cecal inversion
see cecocolic intussusception.
cecal rupture
is a specific entity in horses because it occurs during the act of foaling. Death occurs very quickly due to toxic shock.
cecal torsion
in cows is part of the syndrome of cecal dilatation. In horses constitutes a very serious threat to life. See also intestinal obstruction colic, red gut syndrome.
cecal tympany
see cecal dilatation (above), flatulent colic. Also occurs as an independent entity in young foals and causes acute colic with abdominal distention. The cause is unknown. It also occurs in newborn foals in conjunction with retained meconium.
