Persistent hyperplastic tunica vasculosa lentis and persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHTVL/PHPV) in a Pembore Welsh Corgie

Persistent hyperplastic tunica vasculosa lentis (PHTVL) and persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV) are congenital eye anomalies that results from hyperplastic development of the hyaloid system and primitve vitreous combinened with incomplete regression. This rare ocular abnormality has already been described described in man, several dog breeds, transgenic mice, labor rats and cats.(1,2) (3,4) Bilateral PHTVL/PHPV proved to be inherited in the Doberman, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and it is presumably inherited in one line of the Bouvier des Flandres.

Repair of a traumatic corneal laceration in a cat using a tectonic heterograft.

In dogs and cats, tectonic corneal grafting has been performed in the treatment of melting ulcers, descemetoceles, corneal sequestra, trauma, lacerations, and acute bullous keratopathy4, 5. Although many other techniques are available for the repair of these corneal conditions, the application of a graft after keratectomy provides a transparent protective covering and reduces secondary corneal scarring in varying degrees4, 5, 16.

Treatment of distichiasis in a dog using electrolisis.

The eyelids represent a structure composed of skin and cutaneous appendages, including hair follicles and glandular structures. The eyelids and ocular adnexa comprise the primary surface defence for the globe, specifically the cornea. There are three main forms of ciliary disorders: distichiasis, trichiasis and ectopic cilia. The abnormally placed hairs irritate the cornea. The affected eye will become red, inflamed and may develop a discharge. In severe cases, the cornea may became ulcerated.

Managements of the corneal trauma in animals

Ocular injures are unfortunately a common occurrence in animals. Appropriate detection, diagnosis and treatment decision are needed in case of corneal trauma. Treatment will vary depending on the nature of the wound. In some situations soft contact lenses may promote healing, whereas corneal lacerations may need surgical repair.
