The aim was to record the measures of the umbilical structures in Standardbred healthy foals in order to obtain the range values. Ultrasound was performed at 1 (eco 1), at 3-4 (eco 2) and at 7-8 days of life (eco 3). Umbilical vein and artery, and the combined urachus/arteries were measured. X±SD of structures recorded at eco 1, 2 e 3 are respectively: artery 0,80±0,12cm, 0,65±0,12cm, 0,52±0,10cm; vein: 0,75±0,24 cm, 0,55±0,12 cm, 0,48±0,14 cm; urachus/arteries complex: 2,14±0,47cm, 2,05±0,37cm, 1,51±0,50cm. Paired t-test was significative for all structures. The measures recorded at eco 1 are similar to Others, while measures at eco 2 and 3 are smaller. Furthermore, our SD are lower than bibliography.

Abstract

The aim was to record the measures of the umbilical structures in Standardbred healthy foals in order to obtain the range values. Ultrasound was performed at 1 (eco 1), at 3-4 (eco 2) and at 7-8 days of life (eco 3). Umbilical vein and artery, and the combined urachus/arteries were measured. X±SD of structures recorded at eco 1, 2 e 3 are respectively: artery 0,80±0,12cm, 0,65±0,12cm, 0,52±0,10cm; vein: 0,75±0,24 cm, 0,55±0,12 cm, 0,48±0,14 cm; urachus/arteries complex: 2,14±0,47cm, 2,05±0,37cm, 1,51±0,50cm. Paired t-test was significative for all structures. The measures recorded at eco 1 are similar to Others, while measures at eco 2 and 3 are smaller. Furthermore, our SD are lower than bibliography. The vein involve more rapidly respect to the complex urachus/arteries and the arteries.
