Utility of gastric and duodenal biopsy sampling in adult eosinophilic esophagitis patients to rule out other gastrointestinal disorders.

Scand J Gastroenterol 2021 May 9;56(5):613-620. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Department of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Amsterdam University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Digestive Diseases in Brachycephalic Dogs.

Vet Clin North Am Small Anim Pract 2021 Jan;51(1):61-78

Institute of Life Course and Medical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Leahurst Campus, Chester High Road, Neston, Merseyside CH64 7TE, UK.

In addition to presenting with respiratory signs, many dogs with brachycephalic airway obstructive syndrome show digestive tract signs related to the same conformational abnormalities. A detailed diagnostic investigation is usually required, including clinicopathologic analyses, thoracic radiographs, fluoroscopic studies, abdominal ultrasound examinations and both upper airway and gastrointestinal tract endoscopy. In most cases, medical therapies are successful in managing clinical signs, but surgery can occasionally be required to resolve hiatal hernia or pyloric stenosis. Read More
