Lacrimal Apparatus System in Goat (Capra aegagrus hircus): Anatomical and Radiological Study
M. Shadkhast, A.S. Bigham, N. Vajdi and Z. Shafiei

Abstract:
This study was performed to introduce the anatomical location (gross appearance) and radiographic views (dacryocystorhinography) of lacrimal duct in goats. The anatomy of the nasolacrimal duct of twenty goats (Capra hircus) studied grossly and radiographically. Dacryocystorhinography was performed on cadaver heads, using a radiographic contrast media. Anatomic casts of the nasolacrimal apparatus were obtained by cannulation of the duct and use of corrosion cast (Rodopas cast) material. Dacryocystorhinography accurately revealed the nasolacrimal apparatus and compared favorably with gross dissection and Rodopas casts. The present study on the lacrimal apparatus of the goat might be useful for differentiation of congenital or clinical cases affecting the lacrimal system area.
