Rarely Found, a Thoroughbred racehorse colt, was
shipped to Penny Jenks, in Louisiana, as a referral from the sate of
Florida. Rarely Found was first seen on 4-09-04 by Keith Cooper DVM,
for a comprehensive clinical examination that included
ultrasonographic imaging. Rarely Found initially presented with a
clinical picture of lameness Grade 3.5 out of 5 of the left front
limb for one week's duration before diagnosis and treatment.
Lameness is graded on a scale of Grade 1 (least lame) to Grade 5
(most lame) in horses.
Rarely Found's initial clinical presentation on
examination was pain to flexion and palpation of the digital flexor
tendon area in about the middle, being, Zone 2. There was well
defined, visible swelling as well as heat to the tendon area and
edema in the tendon sheath area on palpation. The lesion was
positively confirmed by ultrasonographic imaging on the day of the
first comprehensive clinical examination and was diagnosed by Keith
Cooper DVM as a 25 to 30% core lesion of the superficial digital
flexor tendon (SDFT). The lesion was in the Zone 2 A and 2 B area.
This core lesion was very concise without evidence of tendon damage
out side of the core of the SDFT lesion area.Rehabilitation: Physical Exercise Program
At this time, this colt's program of physical activity
was confined to stall rest with hand walk for only about 5 minutes
for the first 30 days.
Standard veterinary ancillary treatments included
hydrotherapy and icing daily. Standard veterinary inflammation
prophylaxis consisted of one injection of hyaluronic acid into the
core lesion and tendon sheath. The primary treatment of choice was a
protocol of Equine Cymatherapy Bioresonance that consisted of
applications of bioresonance to the tendon area as well as to
acupuncture points and acupuncture meridians...

30% core lesion of the superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT).
Six weeks later.
Image 2 Ultrasound scan shows a uniform and normal
echogenicity with a complete reduction of the SDFT core lesion to a
well defined tendon cell regeneration area with no evidence of a
prior SDFT lesion.
Image 3 shows proper tendon cell and collagen fiber
alignment with no further evidence of a prior SDFT core lesion.
