Abstract:
Canine Hemangiosarcomas, also known as malignant hemangioendotheliomas, angiosarcomas, endotheliosarcomas, account for up to 40% of all abdominal tumors and are predominant in dogs. This neoplasia tends to be highly malignant and most patients usually have metastases at the time the diagnosis is made. The usual poor prognosis improves depending on how fast the hemangiosarcoma is diagnosed. This is a retrospective study on canine hemangiosarcoma. 109 patients, admitted between 2001-2009 at the Veterinary University of Vienna were included in the study. The purpose of this diploma thesis was to compare information of current literature with data that was taken from the hospital information service (TIS). Information such as breed, age, sex, body weight, a full history, findings of physical examination and tumor localization according to the necropsy results, were taken from the medical records. Further aim was to investigate, if a suspected diagnosis may be based on the presence of common symptoms, characteristic for hemangiosarcomas.
