Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To describe successful surgical treatment of bilateral mucocele in an American Miniature horse using a single bone flap to approach right and left paranasal sinuses simultaneously.

STUDY DESIGN:

Clinical report.

ANIMAL:

A castrated 6-year-old American Miniature Horse with a bilateral mucocele of the paranasal sinuses.

METHODS:

A single bilateral frontonasal sinus flap was used in a standing procedure to access the left and right conchofrontal sinuses simultaneously to remove the mucous contents and to establish permanent drainage into the nasal cavities.

RESULTS:

The novel procedure used in this horse allowed excellent access to right and left paranasal sinuses simultaneously and completely resolved nasal discharge and difficulty breathing.

CONCLUSIONS:

A single, bilateral frontonasal sinus flap can be used successfully as a standing procedure to treat bilateral sinonasal disease in horses.
