Description

This case report describes the postoperative care of a left lateral thoracotomy and thoracic wall reconstruction in a Labrador retriever diagnosed with invasive osteosarcoma of his 6th rib. Once admitted to the ICU, the patient had a multitude of direct nursing interventions, including a second right lateral thoracotomy. Major challenges perioperatively included persistent pneumothorax, pain management, and physical rehabilitation. This case truly exemplified how far veterinary medicine has come in advanced surgical and critical care. This case also showcased how much nursing care plays a role in patient outcome and quality of life.
