Abstract: The present study has been conducted on thirteen buffaloes suffering from dystocia at VCC, LUVAS (Hisar) to assess the ultrasonographic status of dam before and after caesarean section. Both the transabdominal as well as trans-thoracic ultrasonography was done in dystocia affected buffaloes and the findings were compared withsurvival rate of buffaloes. Transabdominal ultrasonography was performed lateral region using 2D convex curved array transducer having frequency 3 MHz after shaving and coupling gel application of the required area. Color Doppler ultrasonography of dam heart was performed between 3rd and 4th intercostal spaces by 2D convex curved array transducer to observe the status of heart. Trans-thoracic ultrasonography was performed using 2D convex curved array transducer having frequency 3 MHz to assess the status of liver and spleenbefore and after caesarean sectionin the buffaloes. Internal structures of dam were successfully imaged by transabdominal and tans-thoracic ultrasonography. It was observed that internal structures (whole liver and spleen) of dam were difficult to image in buffaloes in comparison to heart and kidney. Pixel value of liver and heartwere found to decrease significantly in animals those died as compared to those survived. Those animals have average heart beat below 80 beat/minute were survived while having more tha 80 beat/minute were died after caesaren.The % haemoglobin value significantly decreased 12 hour post caesarean section in both group of animals; however Hb level increased back 24 hour post caesarean in animals those survived than in animals those died. This might be one of the reasons that these animals succumbed after operation.
