Sample text

Sternebral malformations usually are insignificant. Variations in the size and number of sternebrae and in the shape of the manubrium and xiphoid are common. Thoracic conformation varies with breed and each variation influences the appearance of the thoracic viscera. It is important to note the animal’s thoracic shape and evaluate the thoracic viscera accordingly. Three major categories may be observed: 1. Deep and narrow—such as Doberman Pinschers, Afghan Hounds, Collies, and Whippets (Fig. 2-11).

B, On the ventrodorsal radiograph a soft tissue–dense triangular structure is present in the cranial left thorax. This represents soft tissue and fat within the cranial mediastinum (arrows). In young dogs, the thymus may be identified in this location. Diagnosis: Normal thorax. A B C h a p te r Two Th e Th o r ax 41 Fig. 2-12 An 11-year-old female German Shepherd dog with a 2month history of unilateral epistaxis. The thorax is normal. A, On the ventrodorsal radiograph fat density can be seen in the cranial mediastinum (arrows) and also outlines the caudal mediastinum (arrows).

In older dogs and cats, especially obese individuals, the precardiac and, much less frequently, the postcardiac mediastinum may be quite wide. Fat may separate the cardiac silhouette and lung from the sternum on the lateral view, mimicking pleural fluid or even, rarely, air (see Figs. 2-12 and 2-13). The presence of mediastinal fat should be recognized, because where the fat is contiguous with the heart the cardiac margins will remain apparent. This occurs because the fat is less dense than the heart.
