How to treat uterine torsion in parturient dairy cows?

According to the severity of twisting, it is decided to apply a rolling method or surgical treatment to correct uterine torsion in time, return to the normal anatomical position and ensure calving smoothly. Conservative treatment "Rolling Maternal Method" to correct uterine twist: lay soft grass on the broad flat ground lay down cows, tie the forelimbs and hind limbs with ropes respectively, leaving about 100 cm of rope head. The cows lie on the same side of the uterus twist and pull the rope quickly in the same direction of the twist with about three people on each side to make the cow turn slowly. Slowly return to the original recumbent state, once again let its rapid rotation. Roll 2 to 3 times like this, put the disinfected hand into the birth canal and check carefully whether it is in place. This method can be successfully repositioned in most cases with the early reversal and survival of the cow babies. Surgical therapy When the severe conservative method of torsion can not be repaired or the fetus has been dead for a long time, the operation is carried out by laparotomy.

yes ,rolling the cow is the traditional method to correct uterine torsion ,but such method needs many people which are not available in dairy farms especially small size dairies .
In my experience laparotomy is more easy ,efficient and will help in saving the calf the required people are not available ( night time and when farms are away ) .
I corrected the case by complete Cesarean operation .
In some cases though if you are short in manpower and or if rolling did not succeed the torsion was corrected while the cow in the standing position and the calf was pulled normally . this case is successful if the birth canal in dilated enough to pass the calf ( open the body wall and rotate the uterus with out opening the uterus ) and this will save time and effort .

dr. jamil .m. Yes, you are right. I only mentioned conservative treatment, and surgical treatment will be faster and more convenient.
