Abstract
Background:
There were described in veterinary literature the possibility of pneumothorax as a complication of laparoscopic surgery in dogs undergoing laparoscopic ovariectomy associated with total laparoscopic gastropexy.
Aim:
To assess if spontaneous pneumothorax secondary to pneumoperitoneum is a real risk in dogs undergoing total laparoscopic gastropexy.
Methods:
Dogs undergoing totally laparoscopic gastropexy received chest x-rays (CXR) in lateral (left and right) and ventro-dorsal projection before and after the surgery. Two veterinary radiologists reported the x-rays and indicated the presence or not of pneumothorax.
Result:
Postoperative pneumothorax was not detected on postoperative CXR in the total of 76 dogs of the study.
Conclusion:
The odds risk of pneumothorax after total laparoscopic gatropexy surgical procedure is low.

Key words: Pneumothorax, Chest radiography, Laparoscopy, Total laparoscopic gastropexy
