STOPIGLIA, Angelo João et al. Clinical evaluation using the total circulatory stasis in dogs (Canis familiaris). Acta Cir. Bras. [online]. 2001, vol.16, n.4, pp.211-217. ISSN 0102-8650.

The experiment’s objective was to verify possible clinic and neurologic complications that could occur in dogs submitted to total circulatory stasis in different periods: five and ten minutes, by the technique of Inflow Occlusion. Ten healthy adults Mongrel dogs were used, males and females, weighing between fifteen and twenty kilograms. The dogs were divided in two groups of five: GROUP A - animals submitted to five minutes of total circulatory stasis; GROUP B - animals submitted to ten minutes of total circulatory stasis. Transoperative and postoperative ( 24 and 48 hours after surgery), were evaluated until six weeks. Alterations such as oftalmologics, neurologic, motor coordination, conscience and comportment by clinic exam were evaluated. It was concluded that the five minutes Inflow Occlusion was surgically viable in dogs.
