Abstract

Tracheal collapse is often diagnosed in small-breed dogs through use of conventional radiography or fluoroscopy, by which the dorsoventral orientation of the collapse can be seen. In the dog of this report, an unusual lateral form of tracheal collapse was diagnosed by means of bronchoscopy after multiple radiographic procedures had failed to define a cause for cough and dyspnea. Surgical reinforcement of the abnormal region of the trachea resulted in resolution of clinical signs and in reduction in dynamic airway collapse, which was documented on follow-up bronchoscopy.
