    Has anyone else had an issue with the scrolled cartilage?

    Scrolled cartilage, or cartilage eversion
    This condition is less common than ‘cherry eye’ and affects young giant breed dogs, usually during the rapid growth phase. The third eyelid has a T-shaped cartilage within it, to provide some rigidity. One small area of the T grows abnormally fast, so that the cartilage becomes bent, everted or ‘scrolled’. This results in the whole third eyelid becoming scrolled so that it appears as a pink to reddish mass in the corner of the eye. A scrolled cartilage can appear very similar to a ‘cherry eye’ and examination under general anaesthesia may be necessary to distinguish the different conditions.
    As with ‘cherry eye’, there is no medical treatment to correct the abnormal cartilage and an operation is required. The operation is straightforward as the abnormal part of the cartilage is identified, dissected free and completely removed. Recurrence is highly unlikely in the same eye.
    What is involved?
    Your pet will need a general anaesthetic for the operation and will usually stay in the hospital for 1-2 nights. All sutures placed will be dissolvable, so suture removal will not be necessary. A Buster collar or light foot bandage may be required to prevent self-trauma to the eye region for the first few days after surgery.
    After-care
    Antibiotic and/or anti-inflammatory eye drops or ointment will be prescribed for 7-10 days. Oral medication will also usually be prescribed for 5-10 days.
    Rest is advised for the first 5-7 days. Swimming or bathing of the head area should be avoided for the first 14 days. The third eyelid may appear more prominent for several days but this resolves in most cases.
    Recurrence
    The ‘pocket’ technique is approximately 90% successful. However there are certain breeds in which the condition is more difficult to treat and a second operation may be required. In rare cases, the ophthalmologist may advise removal of the gland, and this will be discussed fully beforehand if relevant.
    Some breeds are predisposed to developing both conditions, either at the same time, or within several months of the first symptoms being noticed. Both conditions can affect one or both eyes, although usually there is a delay between the first and second eye being affected. Happy that all went well with his surgery. Good news!

    Hi, just reading this now, as I just got home. I'm so glad that the neuter surgery went well and Bo came through okay, and is back home with you. Sorry they weren't able to repair his eye. I am familiar with cherry eye, because Blossom developed it in both eyes when she was 5 months old, we had them repaired at the same time as we spayed her at 7 months old. I'm not familiar with rolled cartilage, but Lynn gave you a lot of great information on it, and it says that it can be repaired with surgery. I hope the meds are successful in healing his eye. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. Sending love, hugs and prayers to you and Bo. I hope he has a quick recovery from his surgery. Feel better Buddy.

    I'm glad to hear that the neuter procedure was a success for Bocephus. I hope the meds will help w/his cherry eye so that surgery may not be required. And it is comforting to know that your vet has a good ophthalmologist to refer you to if the cherry eye surgery will need to take place in the future. Lots of hugs to you and Bo!
