Abstract

This study was conducted using auto-skin transplantation for repairing of large skin loss of one front limb in dogs. The study was carried out on 8 clinical cases of dogs that brought to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Mosul, Mosul, Iraq; from October 2006 to September 2010. These animals underwent severe lacerated necrotic wounds especially at one front limb more than others. A protocol of general anesthesia was conducted by premedication with atropine sulphate, followed by a mixture of xylazine hydrochloride and ketamine hydrochloride. The large skin defect treated by creating a subcutaneous tunnel extended from the thoracic to the abdominal area at the lateral side of the trunk; therefore the naked area of affected limb covered by a new skin successfully from the subcutaneous tunnel. The result revealed that the all flaps healed without partial or total loss. The appearance, texture, and color of the flaps were similar to those of the donor site. The auto-skin transplantation by subcutaneous tunnel considers an effective and alternative method for the treatment of large skin defect of one front limb in dogs.

Abstract

Aims: To study the effect of oral phenytoin on healing of oral wound in buccal mucosa of rab-bits.Materials and Methods: This study was carried out on twenty healthy male rabbits weighing be-tween 1.0 – 1.5 Kg, they were divided into 2 groups; first group consisted of 10 untreated rabbits (con-trol) and second group consisted of 10 rabbits treated by phenytoin at dose of 60 mg/Kg orally along with 3 ml/Kg of sterile water using cavage needle for 10 days. All animals were anesthetized with amixture of xylazine hydrochloride and ketamine hydrochloride at 0.5, 50 mg/Kg intramuscular respec-tively, then a standard wound was made on buccal mucosa of each rabbit, all animals were kept under observation, and their wounds was measured every day with respect to surface area (length x width) in cm2, type of wound tissue and duration of healing. Results: t – test analysis was performed to test the differences in wound characteristics of both groups, it was found that there was significant differences between control and treatment groups (p< 0.001). Conclusions: Systemic use of phenytoin can delay oral wound healing of buccal mucosa.

Abstract

The objective behind this work was to find out the bacteriological profile of post burn infections in wound. The study was carried out from December 2010 to February 2011 at the Burns Unit of Al –Kindy Hospital and Al-Yarmook Hospital in Baghdad. Sixty burn patients have been investigated for bacterial profile of burn wound infections. Specimens were collected in the form of wound swabs. The organisms were isolated and identified by standard microbiological methods. Antimicrobial susceptibility test has been done by ATB-PSE5 kit(BioMereiux). Pseudomonas aeruginosa 35(58.3 %) was found to be the most common isolate followed by Klebsiella pneumonae 10(16.6%), Staphylococcus aureus 7(10%). ,E.coli 3(5%), Proteus merabilis 1(1.6 %), others 2(3.3 %).and sterile cultures 2(3.3 %). Antibiotic susceptibility pattren for Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates have shown high susptibility for Amikacin 30(85.0%), Pipracillin-Tazobactam 27(77.2%) Piperacillin 25(71.4%), Ciprofloxaqcin 25(71.4%) and Colistin 24(68.5%) and low susceptibility for Tobramycin 20(57.2%) Gentamycin 18(51.0%). Psudomonas was found to be resistant to most of the therapeutic agent.

الغرض من هده الدراسة هو لمعرفة البكتيريا المسببة لاخماج جروح الحروق . تمت الدراسة في وحدة الحروق لمستشفى الكندي ومستشفى اليرموك التعليمي في بغداد للفترة الممتدة من شهر كانون الثاني 2010 الى شباط 2011.تم التحري عن البكتيريا المسببة لاخماج الحروق في 60 مريض مصابين بحروق مختلفة,حيث جمعت العينات على شكل مسحات جروح .ثم تم تشخيص وعزل البكتيري بطريقة قياسية.وتم اختبار حساسية بكتيريا Pseudomonas aeruginosa, للمضادات الحيوية بواسطة عدة ATB– PSE5 اظهرت النتائج ان البكتيريا السالبة لصبغة غرام هي اكثر سيادة من البكتيريا الموجبة لصبغة غرام, وكانت النسب كالتالي : 35(58.3%) Pseudomonas aeruginosa تلتها Klebsiella pneumoniae بنسبة 10(16.6%) ثم 7(10%) Staphylococcus aurous ثم 3(5%) Escherichia coli و Proteus mirabilis (13(5% وبكتيريا اخرى 2(3.3%) واخيرا مسحات عقيمة (%2(3.3.واظهر فحص الحساسية للمضادات لبكتيريا P. aeruginosa زيادة حساسيتها للمضادات التالية : 30(85.0%) Amikacin و Pipracilin- 27(77.2%) Tazobactam و Piperacillin 25(71.5%) و 25(71.4%) Ciprofloxacinو Colistin وقلة حساسيتها لمضادي Gentamycin بنسبة18 (51.0%) و Tobramycin20 (57.2% ) .وكانت بكتيريا Pseudomonas aeruginosa, مقاومة لمعظم المضادات.
