AbstractThe present study aimed to take an idea about the efficiency of modified using ruminal ring for rumine fixation in sheep. Five awasi ewes underwent digestive disorders according to its signs and case history these cases diagnosed as foreign body syndrome. Rumenotomy was performed, rumen fixed with modified winghart ruminal ring, time consuming and degree of contamination this criteria used as index to estimate the efficiency of this method of fixation during operation. Blood picture, physical criteria and clinical inspection include postoperative complications was recorded during one week to evaluate the activity, efficiency, its prognosis and postoperative complications of current method of rumen fixation. The results exhibited bloat, loss of appetite signs accompanied with foreign bodies in most of operative animals, so fixation of rumen with such modified ring suitable for laparorumeotomy in sheep because of less postoperative complications. In spite of that there is some difficulty with using this technique as large volume of ring which some time led to slipping of ruminal hocks and the ruminal content may enter to the abdominal cavity. There were no significant changes in physical and blood criteria. Data suggest hat rumenotomy can be easily done in sheep with a modified winghart ring.
