Subtotal intracapsular resection of prostate adenoma with total ablation of the intraprostatic urethra and urinary continence preservation in dogs is an operation that has a high degree of difficulty and it is done in severe cases, acute blockage of the urinary and digestive transit, consecutive to total prostate volume augmentation. Subtotal prostatectomy is indicated in valuable breeding dogs for benign prostatic hyperplasia in lieu of castration and in stable dogs with abscessation or cysts in lieu of drainage procedures.
In the Clinic of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Bucharest, we have performed this surgery in 2 male dogs, common breed, with prostate adenoma, age 8 and 9 respectively. Using the electroscalpel, we dissected all parenchyma except a 2 mm shell attached to the capsule. We resected all the urethra except a 1-2 cm dorsal strip, trying to maintain the integrity of the Seminal colliculus and not to reach the striate sphincter of the urinary bladder. Read more »
