Tumoral calcinosis in a dog with chronic renal failure : clinical communication
T.C. Spotswood
Journal of the South African Veterinary Association , 2012, DOI: 10.4102/jsava.v74i1.498
Abstract: A 2-year-old male German shepherd dog in poor bodily condition was evaluated for thoracic limb lameness due to a large, firm mass medial to the left cranial scapula. Radiography revealed several large cauliflower-like mineralized masses in the craniomedial left scapula musculature, pectoral region and bilaterally in the biceps tendon sheaths. Urinalysis, haematology and serum biochemistry showed that the dog was severely anaemic, hyperphosphataemic and in chronic renal failure. The dog was euthanased and a full post mortem performed. A diagnosis of chronic renal failure with secondary hyperparathyroidism was confirmed. The mineralized masses were grossly and histopathologically consistent with a diagnosis of tumoral calcinosis. Tumoral calcinosis associated with chronic renal failure that does not involve the foot pads is rarely seen.
Cervical spondylomyelopathy (wobbler syndrome) in the Boerboel
M.J. Gray,R.M. Kirberger,T.C. Spotswood
Journal of the South African Veterinary Association , 2012, DOI: 10.4102/jsava.v74i4.520
Abstract: The Boerboel is a South African large-breed dog resembling a Bullmastiff. The records of Onderstepoort Veterinary Academic Hospital were searched for dogs that had presented, between 1998 and 2003, with symptoms indicative of wobbler syndrome and had undergone survey radiographic and myelographic studies. Ten cases fitted the inclusion criteria. Dogs presented within the first 2 years of life, often with acute onset of symptoms. All presented with pelvic limb and 6 with concomitant thoracic limb ataxia or paresis. Treatment varied and included none (4), prednisolone (2), and dorsal laminectomy (2). Two dogs were euthanased at the time of diagnosis. The breed appears to be affected with a form of spondylomyelopathy that comprises bony malformation of cervical and/or thoracic vertebrae. In 8 dogs, malformations were evident on survey radiographs and were characterised by enlarged, irregular articular facets and associated medial deviation of the pedicles. These changes resulted in axial compression of the spinal cord best seen on ventrodorsal or dorsoventral myelographic studies. Multiple vertebrae were affected in some dogs and lesions were not confined to the caudal area of the cervical spine. Three dogs were alive and without symptoms at follow-up. Four were euthanased as a result of the disease and 1 died as a result of post-operative complications. Two additional dogs presenting with wobbler clinical signs are also described. One had medial deviation of the T5 and T6 caudal pedicles and 1 dog suffered from multiple cervical articular facet synovial cysts.
A canine model of normovolaemic acute anaemia
T.C. Spotswood,R.M. Kirberger,L.M.P.K. Kirb,F. Reyers
Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/ojvr.v72i2.209
Abstract: The objective was to develop a non-terminal, acute normovolaemic anaemia model in dogs that has minimal effects on patient well-being. Eleven normal Beagle dogs were used. About 20 % of the circulating blood volume was removed from the jugular vein 1-3 times per day over a 3-4 day period until a haematocrit (Ht) of 13-17 % was obtained. Normovolaemia was maintained by replacing the volume deficit of the red blood cells with Ringer's lactate and re-infusing the plasma. Full blood count and Ht were monitored twice daily. The 13-17 % Ht was reached within 3-4 days with the number of phlebotomies ranging from four to seven. The model was primarily developed to determine echocardiographic values as well as Doppler abdominal splanchnic blood flow parameters in anaemic dogs as part of a study that will compare these results to similar studies in babesiosis-induced anaemia. The model may also be useful in the evaluation of the pathophysiology of anaemia in dogs or as a model for anaemia in humans.
The role of the Christian community in a plural society
T.C. Rabali
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2002, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v67i4.381
Abstract: This article identifies four ways in which our society is often referred to as being plural. It discusses four pluralisms and indicates several challenges associated with each one of them. It argues that the Christian community has to consider all four of these aspects of pluralism when seeking to understand its role. It is argued that part of the role that the Christian community has to take seriously is that of maintaining and establishing institutions that will help in an open confession of Christ. This role includes that of having a vigorous and comprehensive apologetics, in the classical sense, of providing proofs for the central Christian positions, defending Christian positions by providing answers to questions that are raised, as well as offering an offensive that seeks to highlight the problems associated with non-Christian views.

La lucha de las parteras diplomadas por la práctica de la obstetricia en Rio de Janeiro (Brasil)
Porto,F.; Cardoso,T.C.;
Enfermería Global , 2009,
Abstract: estudio histórico social sobre la lucha simbólica de las prácticas obstétricas realizadas por las parteras diplomadas entre 1832-1876 en rio de janeiro. las fuentes documentales fueron encontradas en rio de janeiro y s?o paulo (br) y analizadas y discutidas basándose en algunos conceptos de pierre bourdieu. los resultados del estudio se?alaron la transformación de la facultad de medicina de rio de janeiro en el curso de partera en la formación de parteras diplomadas, que pasaron a ejercer sus actividades. además, ampliaron su radio de acción con la creación de casas de maternidad. en este sentido, los médicos obstetras, por medio de dispositivo legal, pasaron a administrarlas para avance de la medicina, al igual que hicieron que las mujeres fueran vistas como objeto de estudio.
