Vaginoscopy in Ewes Utilizing a Laparoscopic Surgical Port Device

Figure 1

Vaginoscopy is conducted in an anesthetized ewe in dorsal recumbency. The laparoscopic surgical port device is inserted in the vulva, allowing insufflation with carbon dioxide gas and insertion of a 10 mm diameter rigid telescope for complete examination. A 5 mm biopsy instrument has also been inserted through one of the 5 mm portals.
