Aneurysmal dilatation of the right auricle in two dogs

T Schwarz, R Willis, N J Summerfield, R Doust

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Right auricular aneurysmal dilatation should be included in differential diagnoses of masses detected radiographically in the cranial mediastinum.

Herniation of the right auricle through a pericardial defect is a possible cause for such lesions in dogs.

An absence of abnormal echocardiographic findings does not rule out the presence of a right auricular aneurysm.

Angiographic evaluation may be indicated to confirm or rule out right auricular aneurysmal dilatation.
