Inversion of the eyelids

Inversion of the eyelids can be in all animals, but most often it is observed in dogs. In this disease, the plane of the free edge of the eyelids, which normally adjoins the eyeball evenly, is turned inwards or for some extent. With a strong degree of inversion, not only the free edge is turned to the eye, but also the skin surface of the eyelid along with the eyelashes, which causes irritation of the cornea. As a result, keratitis, ulcers develop, and as a result, perforation and opening of the anterior chamber occur. Inversion of the eyelids can be on one eye or on both.

Etiology. The disease occurs due to cicatricial contraction of the conjunctiva, cartilage deformation, convulsive contraction of the circular muscle of the eyelids, sagging skin of the upper eyelid. Spastic inversion occurs on the basis of chronic inflammatory processes of the conjunctiva and other parts of the eye and at the same time, the retraction of the eyeball retractor, due to which the eyeball is drawn deep into the orbit.

Cicatricial inversion is observed mainly in horses and cattle on the basis of cicatricial contractions of the conjunctiva and in chronic processes in it. In dogs, chronic conjunctivitis, especially follicular, is one of the common causes of inversion. Often an inversion appears after the removal of the third century. Pathological changes in the eyeball itself, accompanied by atrophy of it and enophthalmos also cause an inversion of the eyelid. The same should be said for congenital malformations of the eyeball. In all these cases, the edges of the eyelids do not meet sufficient support, and therefore the surface of the edge of the eyelid is drawn inward.
This form of eyelid twisting is often observed in horses. A known role in the origin of the inversion of the eyelids is played by heredity.

Clinical signs. During inversion, the free (ciliary) edge of the eyelid partially or throughout is wrapped inward towards the eyeball. The palpebral fissure is narrowed, lacrimation, conjunctivitis, incorrect position of the edge of the eyelids and eyelashes are noted; in advanced cases, inflammation of the cornea, clouding and ulceration of it. Eye drawn into orbit.

Treatment. With inversion of the eyelids, treatment should be aimed at eliminating the underlying cause. With a mild spastic inversion, you can limit yourself to applying an adhesive plaster or strengthen the eyelids in an appropriate position with intradermal sutures. Surgical treatment should be considered more reliable, with the use of which it is necessary to rush, especially if the eyelashes wrapped inside irritate the cornea and conjunctiva. The most common operation for the inversion of the eyelids is to excise a fold of the skin. The operation is simple. Small animals are fixed on the operating table, large animals are operated in a standing position, under local anesthesia. After preparing the surgical field, an oval skin flap of the required size is cut out with a scalpel, retreating from the edge of the eyelids by several millimeters. Stitches are placed on the edges of the wound.

Some surgeons leave the wound without seams, allowing the edges of the incision to come closer by scarring; the result may be insufficient convergence of the edges or excessive contraction; therefore suturing is mandatory.

Inversion of the eyelids

    Inversion of the eyelids is a pathological condition in which the edges of the eyelids turn inward to the eyeball, contributing to trauma to the conjunctiva and cornea. In Persian cats, this is a birth defect that occurs quite often. Often, inversion of the eyelids develops as a complication of chronic conjunctivitis. Symptoms: increased lacrimation, the palpebral fissure is narrowed, the cornea is cloudy,
  2. Acute expansion of the stomach - inversion of the intestines
    Wayne E. Wingfield, DVM, MS 1. What are the symptoms of a dog with acute gastric dilatation - the intestinal collar (RZZK)? Acute RZhZK in dogs is characterized by an improper location of the stomach, rapid accumulation of gas in it, increased pressure in the stomach, shock and often results in the death of the animal. 2. Flatulence (bloating) and RZhZK - is it the same thing? Dog owners often talk about RZhZK

    Anomalies of the eyelids: coloboma of the eyelids; inversion, eversion of the century; epicanthus, ptosis, etc. Features of the course in children. Treatment. Inflammatory diseases of the eyelids: barley, chalazion, blepharitis. Features of the course in children. Treatment. Anomalies in the development of lacrimal organs: absence of lacrimal openings; narrowing of the lacrimal tubules. Inflammatory diseases of the lacrimal organs: dacryoadenitis; canaliculitis; dacryocystitis. Features
  4. Inversion of the eyelids
    Etiology. When ectopic, part or all of the edges of the eyelids turn outward and move away from the cornea. The causes of ectopic eyelids are: 1) damage with a large defect in the tissue (wounds, burns, eczema, dermatitis), when the scar tissue that develops at the site of the injury pulls the edge of the eyelid out - cicatricial eversion; 2) conjunctival disease, when a strongly swollen tissue pushes the edge of the eyelid from the eye -
  5. Inflammation of the eyelids
    Etiology. Inflammation of the eyelids can be due to a variety of reasons. The most common cause is eyelid irritation due to mechanical, thermal or chemical influences. In case of violation of the integrity of the skin, microbes, parasitic fungi can penetrate, which leads to the occurrence of parasitic and infectious diseases. Inflammation of the eyelids can cause various complications of wounds, bruises, burns;
    XVIII century marked the entry of humanity into the era of the New Age - a historical period characterized by modernization in many areas of life. The ideological basis of the modernization process was enlightenment, which in the countries of Europe (and in Russia too) became a broad cultural movement, due to which contemporaries themselves called their centennial the “Age of Enlightenment”. Freethinking, thirst for knowledge and
  7. Veterinary medicine of noble Russia (XVIII century)
    For Russia, the eighteenth century was the heyday of the reforms of Peter the Great. It was characterized by the strengthening of feudal serfdom, the development of trade and industry, the organization of educational and scientific institutions. In 1725, the Academy of Sciences was opened. To prepare new scientific personnel, a university and a gymnasium were created at it. In 1755, Moscow University was opened. AT
    Since the time of ancient civilizations, surgery, as the most radical part of medicine, has come a long and difficult way. However, the most impressive and brilliant achievements of scientists and surgeons from different countries, including Russia, was marked by the twentieth century, which can rightly be called the "golden age"

  12. Physical development of socially different populations of children and adolescents living in various territories of Russia in the first decade of the 21st century
    In the previous paragraph, the hygienic characteristics of the studied populations of children and adolescents were given and their social differences were shown. Since physical development is considered as an indicator of the sanitary-epidemiological well-being of the population, it can be assumed that it will have differences in these populations. For the description and analysis of indicators of physical development were selected
  13. Hygienic characteristics of socially different populations of children and adolescents living in various territories of Russia in the first decade of the 21st century
    The study was performed by the method of natural hygienic experiment using epidemiological studies. The following populations of children and adolescents were studied: 1. Children living in the conditions of a Moscow metropolis and studying in 11 general education institutions (longitudinal monitoring). 2. Children and adolescents - social orphans, pupils of state
    Goals and objectives: 1. To characterize the shifts that have occurred in the socio-economic situation of Russia and the end of the seventeenth and beginning of the eighteenth centuries, as conditions for the accelerated development of medicine. 2. To consider the formation of medicine as a system within its sections. 3. To determine the occurrence of objective prerequisites for the formation of professional assistance to the population. Medical care organization in
    Diseases of the eyelids. Inflammatory processes of the eyelids are a common occurrence in dogs. They arise as a result of injuries, vitamin deficiencies, chemical and thermal burns, the penetration of microbes, viruses, some parasites (scabies, demodicosis). Simple, or scaly, blepharitis. The disease is characterized by hyperemia, sometimes a thickening of the edges of the eyelids, the appearance of rejecting epidermal cells at the base of the eyelashes

    SYNONYMS Incomplete bowel movement. DEFINITION Intestinal malrotation - developmental abnormalities caused by a violation of the process of intestinal rotation in the early stages of embryonic development and after birth, usually manifested by symptoms of complete or partial intestinal obstruction. CODE FOR ICD-K56.2 Inversion of the intestines. PATHOGENESIS With a delay at the beginning of the second period of embryonic rotation
  17. Colon
    Strangulated ileus of the large intestine is usually the result of rotation (twisting). Twisting is most common in mares when the time for the foals is right. The turn should be greater than 180 degrees to cause obstruction of the venous vessels that drain blood from the colon, and more than 270 degrees to cause obstruction of the arteries
    Thermal eye burns occur as a result of the effect of temperature on the mucous membrane of the eyeball. According to the depth of the lesion, four degrees of burns are distinguished: 1st degree - slight redness; 2nd degree - edema, blisters on the skin of the eyelids, a white film on the cornea; 3rd degree - damage to the deep layers of the skin of the eyelids, cornea such as frosted glass; 4th degree - carbonization of tissues.
