Portal hypertension may be secondary manifestation of right-sided congestive heart failure, caina vena cava obstruction, and intrahepatic obstruction [ 19 ]. Invasiveness of hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocellular carcinoma with their radiographic appreciation as hepatomegaly has been reported [ 7 ], whereas inflammatory diseases or neoplasia, hepatic venous congestion, fat infiltration, cholestasis, cirrhosis, infiltrative diseases amyloidosis or lipidosisand storage diseases have been described as the potential causes of diffuse hepatomegaly [ 11 ].

Diagnostic Tests and Imaging Techniques for the Hepatobiliary Affections By using a combination of history, physical examination findings, results of screening, and hepatobiliary-specific laboratory tests, ascigis clinician usually becomes apt to describe the disorder as active or quiescent.

Open in a separate window. The liver biopsy findings and histopathological examination may range from unremarkable to minimal inflammatory changes in disorders of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension [ 9 ].

The primary indication so obtained may suggest evidence of hepatobiliary disease that can be confirmed by other, more specific tests including advanced diagnostic imaging procedures. Sagittal sonogram 2D of liver in a ten-year-old intact Labrador retriever dog affected by a perianal tumour showing hyperechoic hepatic mass with central lytic changes.

Hepatic inflammation, regeneration and caninx result in the development of portal hypertension and the establishment of multiple extrahepatic portosystemic shunts which in turn promote the development of ascites [ 18 ], whereas perihepatic changes such as ascites, portal and splenic vein asciris and splenomegaly might occur with cirrhosis because of portal hypertension [ 10 ].

Sonographic features in cases of cirrhosis vary from multiple hepatic nodules from macronodular regeneration besides hyperechoic hepatic parenchyma and decreased liver lobe size [ 12 ] to diffuse hyperechoic bright but small liver with distended gall bladder and irregular contour [ 1314 ].

Cznina 2D in transverse scan showing hyperechoic liver lobe and cholecystitis with inspissated bile in gall bladder GB in a 7-year-old intact Pomeranian male dog.

Posthepatic causes include compression of hepatic veins, caudal vena cava, or right heart disease [ 18 ]. Chronic pancreatitis with extra peritoneal fluid collection misleadingly Notice the proximity of the stomach to the asciis, implying reduced hepatic mass.

Hepatic neoplasia in the dog and cat. Villiers E, Blackwood L, editors. Handbook of Small Animal Gastroenterology.

Despite availability of ascjtis range ascltis diagnostic tests of both hepatic damage and dysfunction, there is rarely a single test that adequately identifies hepatic disease or its underlying cause.

Clinical Manifestations Dogs affected by this condition are mostly young or middle aged adults of either sex with signs of hepatitis of varying severity.

The biopsy specimens so procured are subjected to standardized processing and histopathological examination for yielding definitive diagnosis of hepatic affections. The effusion analysed is then classified as transudate, modified transudate, or exudates Figure 3.

Passive congestion observed in acute hepatic insult is the most common benign cause of diffuse decreased liver echogenicity which result from dilatation of hepatic sinusoids and hepatitis, owing to swelling of hepatocytes [ 24 ] Figure Cholelithiasis can predispose to cholecystitis by obstructing the cystic duct, causing gallbladder overdistension and stasis, which enables proliferation of ascitiis organisms [ 8 ].

Sonography of the liver, gallbladder, and spleen. Histopathological Features The liver biopsy findings and histopathological examination may range from unremarkable to minimal inflammatory changes in disorders of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension [ 9 ]. It is difficult to evaluate the entire liver as much of the liver is silhouetted by the diaphragm, stomach and right kidney [ 5 ]. Effective Management Practices to Reduce Urinalysis findings reveal bilirubinuria and absence of asfitis.

Stieger SM, Url A. Besides the presence of multiple portosystemic collateral vessels, ascites, splenomegaly, and an abnormal liver echogenicity, enlarged main portal and extrahepatic portal veins are the associated features canima portal hypertension [ 20 ].

Histopathologic Features The most common types of primary hepatic cancer reported in male dogs are hepatocellular carcinoma and intrahepatic cholangiocellular bile caninz carcinoma in female dogs.

Hughes D, King LG. Manual of Clinical Onco- logy. The selection of the biopsy method also depends on likelihood of surgical resection of a mass, tolerance of general anaesthesia, available equipment and expertise of the clinician [ 2 ].
