Editorial

Few years have passed since HCAVS was established, and we have already successfully concluded the 7th FORUM and third nomination of a new Administration Board through the elections that were conducted on the 20th of March 2016. Ongoing education programmes, held by the autumnal scientific days and annual regional courses throughout Greece, highlight the necessity for the existence of HCAVS, the success of which is reward itself for all the efforts made by its contributors, members and executives.

Our era is so “caught up” in the speed of development that even when its effects or outcome are identified, they cannot always be explained. Experts have been dedicated to their research for decades. With this in mind, I would say that the last three generations of scientists have been much more fortunate in terms of acceptance, assimilation and use of those results.

Canine hip dysplasia. Part I: Aetiopathogenesis & diagnostic approach

> Abstract
Hip dysplasia in dogs is a multifactorial disease caused by hereditary and environmental factors. Most commonly seen among very young giant and chondrodystrophic breeds, it manifests as an abnormal development of the round ligament of the femoral head that leads to coxofemoral joint instability and (sub)luxation. The disease presents as hind limb lameness.

Chromatic pupillary light reflex and its application in small animal ophthalmology

> Abstract

The recent discovery of the existence in the retina of a third group of photosensitive cells, other than cones and rods, which have the capacity of stimulating the pupillary light reflex, has changed our knowledge of how the iris reacts to different wavelengths of light and introduced the concept of chromatic pupillary light reflex in eye examination. This is a test whereby the pupillary response is stimulated not by monochromatic white light, but successively by red and blue light, allowing the selective stimulation of photoreceptors. The chromatic pupillary light reflex is particularly useful in the diagnosis of sudden acquired retinal degeneration, progressive retinal atrophy, chorioretinopathies, retinal detachment, glaucoma, disorders of the optic nerve and optic chiasm and certain brain diseases that cause blindness.

Diagnosis and surgical treatment of thymoma in the cat

> Abstract
Thymoma is a rare neoplasm seen in aged cats that derives from thymic epithelial cells and is usually located in the cranial mediastinum. Clinical signs include dyspnoea, coughing, anorexia, lethargy or regurgitation. Feline thymoma may also be associated with myasthenia gravis or exfoliative dermatitis. Diagnosis of the tumour is based on diagnostic imaging. Ultrasonography provides information concerning the consistency of the mass.
