The purpose of this study was to compare easiness of application of polypropylene external total ring prosthesis (PPTRP, Group A) with that of polyvinylchloride external total ring prosthesis (PVCTRP, Group B), which were used for surgical correction of tracheal collapse in dogs. PPTRP was made from 3 ml syringe and PVCTRP from the drip chamber of intravenous administration set. Prostheses of group A (n=5) and B (n=5) were placed to cervical trachea in clinically normal 10 dogs, respectively weighing between 4 kg and 6 kg. There were mild coughing and swelling in one to three dogs of both groups for 3 days after surgery. No exercise intolerance was observed in both groups after surgery. There were no different results of clinical signs and radiographic views after surgery between group A and group B. The time (mean${pm}$SD) to make total ring prosthesis, group A took $23.2{pm}1.9$ minutes which was remarkably longer than that $(4.6{pm}0.3)$ of group B. Also, the time to place around trachea, group A required $61.8{pm}8.8$ minutes and group B $38.4{pm}8.0$ minutes. Conclusionly, PVCTRP was timesaving and easier to make, fix, and suture than those of PPTRP. PVCTRP may be used alternatively to PPTRP for the tracheal collapse to treat in dogs.
