This article discusses the background to this surgery, the instrumentation required and and includes a description of the technique used by the author, with some reference to alternative approaches.

Acute oropharyngeal stick injuries

Acute oropharyngeal stick injuries

Oropharyngeal stick injuries are relatively uncommon injuries, seen mainly in dogs, which can present in a variety of ways. More commonly these injuries are found shortly after the initial event has occurred. The literature shows a clear benefit from a thorough and systematic approach to these acute cases in order to prevent progression to the chronic presentation. These injuries can be treated in a variety of ways including endoscopic debridement and lavage through to open cervical exploratory surgery. The prognosis is much better for dogs presenting acutely if they are treated appropriately. The decision-making process can be challenging in these cases and this article will hopefully allow the reader to develop the necessary skills to manage these cases with confidence.
