Abstract

The present study illustrated the use of plain and contrast radiography in the diagnosis of extra-reticular metallic foreign body in a she-buffalo. Ultrasonography from the right, left and ventral regions was useful for assessing foreign induced changes in the peri-reticular region and to diagnose focal reticulo-peritonitis or adhesions. Metallic foreign body from the extra-reticular tract was retrieved, successfully, through the post-xiphoid surgical approach under general anesthesia.
