Title in Portuguese
Ultra-sonografia abdominal e pélvica em cães da raça Golden Retriever sadios, portadores e afetados pela distrofia muscular progressiva

Distrofia Muscular de Duchenne
Ultrasonografia
Abstract in Portuguese
A distrofia muscular de Duchenne (DMD) é a miopatia mais comum em humanos. Constitui urna doença genética de herança recessiva, ligada ao cromossomo X, caracterizada por necrose e regeneração muscular. O modelo animal da distrofia muscular de Duchenne mais estudado é o camundongo mdx, porém, um modelo canino da raça Golden Retriever com mutação semelhante tem se mostrado superior ao mdx, pois apresenta impressionantes similaridades fenotípicas e genotípicas com a DMD em humanos. Procurando contribuir com estas pesquisas, voltou-se para o exame ultra-sonográfico abdominal e pélvico, nestes cães, tanto sadios, como portadores e afetados pela distrofia muscular progressiva, para verificar se existiam diferenças e/ou semelhanças entre os dados obtidos. Ao exame ultra-sonográfico pôde-se observar hepatomegalia, aumento de calibre dos ramos da veia hepática e da espessura pancreática, alteração topográfica de órgãos, ecotextura parenquimal grosseira, alterações do conteúdo da vesícula biliar e vesícula urinária, bem como menores dimensões esplênicas, aorticas, prostáticas e testiculares, nos cães afetados pela distrofia muscular progressiva quando comparados aos demais animais estudados. A hiperecogenicidade hepática e o aumento de linfonodos mesentéricos foram observados em grande parte dos animais tanto sadios, como portadores e afetados.

Abstract in English
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the commonest inherited neuromuscular disease. This disease is an inherited recessive X -linked disorder and is characterized by muscle necrosis and regeneration. The most ftequent1y studied animal model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the mdx mouse, but, a dog model (Golden Retriever muscular dystrophy) with a similar mutation may be a superior model being closer phenotypically and genotypically to DMD. Abdominal and pelvic ultrasonography was performed in healthy Golden Retriever dogs, carriers and affected by gradual muscular dystrophy to verify similarities or differences among them. Ultrasonographic examination in affected dogs documented an enlarged liver, hepatic veins and pancreas; displaced organs; parenchyma coarser echotexture; decreased spleen, aorta, prostate gland and testes and content alterations in gallbladder and urinary bladder. Hyperechoic liver and enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes were documented in many healthy Golden Retriever dogs, carriers and affected by gradual muscular dystrophy.
