서울대학교 수의과대학
A 5-month-old, 5kg, intact male mixed dog was admitted to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital of the College of Veterinary Medicine Cornell University because of severe systolic murmur. On physical examination, the dog appeared to be thin and slightly small for his age. Radiographic studies with barium sulfate clearly showed the presence of loops of intestines in the pericardium. Based on these findings peritoneopericardial diaphragmatic hernia was diagnosed. Many abnormalities were found in dog's heart : ventricular septal defect, pulmonic stenosis with moderate pulmonic valve insufficiency, and mild mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency. Puppy's longterm prognosis was fair. His intestines were removed from his pericardium and the defect in his diaphragm was closed. The surgery went smoothly and puppy recovered very nicely from anesthesia.
