Topic/s: Laser-assisted Turbinectomy
Nasal breathing plays an important role in thermoregulation in the dog.
Obstructed intranasal airflow may contribute to exercise and heat intolerance and collapse in brachycephalic dogs far more than impaired pulmonary ventilation. Failure to address intranasal obstruction may explain the lack or minimal improvement after conventional multilevel surgery for brachycephalic syndrome in many cases.
This lecture introduces the concepts around laser assisted turbinectomy and Philip Moses discusses his experiences with this technique.
