FERRI, S.T.S.; VICENTE, W.R.R.  and  TONIOLLO, G.H.. Ultrasonographyc study of the postpartum uterine involution in bitches after cesaerean section. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2003, vol.55, n.2, pp.167-172. ISSN 0102-0935.

Fifteen pregnant bitches were observed by serial B-mode (real time) ultrasonography to describe the characteristics and diameter of the involuting uterus on days 0, 3, 7, 14, and 21 post-cesarean. The average and standard deviation, in centimeters, presented on those days after cesarean section, were, respectively 3.99+0.71, 3.27+0.51, 2.60+0.54; 2.01+0.34 and 1.28+0.24. Under the conditions of this report it is concluded that cesarean section did not influence normal uterine involution.

Keywords : bitch; involution; cesarean; ultrasound; puerperium.
