Performing surgery on dogs with GDV


In this interview, Fetch Charlotte faculty member Dr Shadi Ireifej shares insight from his lecture on this topic

In a dvm360® interview, Fetch Charlotte faculty member Shadi Ireifej, DVM, DACVS, provides an overview of gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV), including the most common surgery used to treat it, and post-operative complications that can occur.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Shadi Ireifej, DVM, DACVS: With post operative complications, probably the most common thing is going to be something like you know, the incision, the external incision, like the skin, not healing well. It is a very fast surgery and so these pets are also debilitated, so...wound healing, like with an incision, is altered much more so when you have a debilitated pet, maybe middle-aged to older pet with other diseases.
