Surgical Management of Traumatic Ruminal Fistula in an Ongole Cow

Devi Prasad V., Devarathnam J., Mahesh R., Kamalaka r G. and Sumiran N..


An Ongole cow with traumatic rumen fistula at the left 8th intercostal space was treated by performing rumenotomy. The rumen was evacuated off its contents and exteriorized through the left flank incision and from there, the fistula was sutured. Non involvement of diaphragm in this case, though it is close to eighth intercostal space could save the patient.

Key words: Traumatic fistula, Rumenotomy, Cattle
