Regional Limb Perfusion

IMG_1863

A regional limb perfusion (RLP) is often performed in our practice for delivery of Tildren for a foot or fetlock problem and less often for delivery of stem cells.  A tourniquet is placed above the fetlock joint (above).

Following proper preparation of the site, a small catheter is placed in the digital vein (above).

The extension set and drug delivery system is attached for injection of the medication (above and below).

Following administration of the drug, a pressure wrap is applied over the injection site while the tourniquet remains in place for an additional 20 minutes (above). Once the tourniquet is removed, the limb is bandaged.  This bandage can be removed the following day.
