Title in Portuguese
Correlações da biometria ultrassonográfica testicular com medidas prostáticas e corporais em cães
Keywords in Portuguese
Canis familiaris
Glândula prostática
Abstract in Portuguese
Foram realizadas as biometrias ultrassonográficas testiculares e prostáticas, e mensurações corporais como altura de cernelha, comprimento do corpo, estatura e peso corporal de 54 cães inteiros, com idade entre 24 e 50 meses e escore corporal definido eliminando animais obesos. As medidas testiculares apresentaram correlação positiva forte com as medidas prostática, medidas corporais e peso metabólico (p<0,001), e correlação positiva moderada com o índice de massa corporal canino (IMCC). Foi possível determinar um intervalo de confiança entre as medidas testiculares e prostáticas no grupo de animais estudados e elaborar equações lineares simples para se estimar as medidas prostáticas a partir das medidas testiculares. Definiu-se equações utilizando o comprimento testicular (CT) ou o diâmetro testicular (DT) em centímetros. Comprimento próstata = CT x 0,82 (r2 = 0,97); Comprimento da próstata = DT x 1,27; Altura próstata = CT x 0,72 (r2 = 0,97); Altura da próstata = DT x 1,12; Largura próstata = CT x 0,85 (r2 = 0,96); Largura da próstata = DT x 1,32. Não houve diferença estatisticamente significativa entre as dimensões de comprimento e diâmetro dos testículos direito e esquerdo

Correlations of testicular ultrasound biometry with prostatic and body measurements in dogs

Abstract in English
The ultrasound biometry of testicular and prostate as well as body measurements such as withers height, body length, height and weight were done of 54 dogs, aged between 24 and 50 months and body condition defined eliminating obese animals. The testicular measurements showed strong positive correlation with prostate size and body measurements as well as with metabolic weight (p < 0,001), and moderate positive correlation with de canine body mass index (IMCC). It was possible to determine a confidence interval between testicular and prostate measures. Simple linear equations to estimate prostate measures from the testicular measures were done. The equations was defined using testicular length or testicular diameter in centimeters. Prostate length = testicular length x 0,82 (r2 = 0,97); Prostate length = testicular diameter x 1,27; Prostate height = testicular length x 0,72 (r2 = 0,97); Prostate length = testicular diameter x 1,12; Prostate width = testicular length x 0,85 (r2 = 0,96); Prostate widht = testicular diameter x 1,32. There was no statistically significant difference between the dimensions of the right and left testicles
