• gastric dilatati
  • Gastric dilatation volvulus (GDV), also known as twisted stomach or gastric torsion, is a medical condition in which the stomach becomes overstretched and rotated by excessive gas content. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gastric dilatation volvulus in dogs is likely caused by a multitude of factors, but in all cases the immediate prerequisite is a dysfunction of the sphincter between the esophagus and stomach and an obstruction of outflow through the pylorus. (wikipedia.org)
  • A diagnosis of gastric dilatation-volvulus is made by several factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • The breed and history will often give a significant suspicion of gastric dilatation-volvulus, and the physical exam will often reveal the telltale sign of a distended abdomen with abdominal tympany. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gastric dilatation volvulus is an emergency medical condition: having the animal examined by a veterinarian is imperative. (wikipedia.org)
  • In dogs, a similar procedure is often performed for patients presenting with GDV (Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus) in which a wide-bore trocar is passed through the skin into the stomach to immediately decompress the stomach. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Histological examination of the aortic wall specimens showed that patients with bicuspid aortic valve with increased diameter of the ascending aorta more often have histological signs of dilatation. (hu-berlin.de)
  • volume
  • A dilatation corresponds to a change of volume of the spacetime continuum without a change of shape (as seen in Section 3) while a distortion corresponds to a change of shape of the spacetime continuum without a change in volume. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • patients
  • Reduction aortoplasty of the ascending aorta shows good long-term results in patients with bicuspid aortic valve and dilatation of the ascending aorta. (hu-berlin.de)
