SPONTANEOUS RUPTURE OF THE CAUDIAL RENAL ARTERY IN TURKEYS

SPONTANEOUS RUPTURE OF THE CAUDIAL RENAL ARTERY IN TURKEYS

A case of spontaneous rupture of the caudal renal artery in broiler turkeys is observed at the age of 8 - 12 weeks. Some birds in an excellent body condition die. The carcasses are anaemic. The necropsy shows that in some birds, the entire body cavity is filled with clotted blood (538) and in others - massive subcapsular coagula from the side of the affected kidney are detected (539 and 540).

541.In all cases, unilateral rupture was observed, primarily of the left renal artery.
careful separation of the renal parenchyma, the torn ends of the artery are revealed. The cause is unknown but some accompanying pathogenetic factors could be the high blood pressure in turkeys, their natural predis¬position to atherosclerosis and the lack of intramural vasa vasorum of the descending aorta.
