MARTINEZ VILLA, Damarys; IZQUIERDO PEREZ, Nelson A; PEREIRO PARGA, Erlán  and  TAMAYO ESCOBAR, Yorkis. Causes of Liver, Kidney and Heart Condemnation at Swine Slaughter House in Ciego de Ávila, Cuba. Rev. prod. anim. [online]. 2017, vol.29, n.1, pp.36-39. ISSN 2224-7920.

The causes for confiscation of swine livers, kidneys and hearts at a slaughter house from the Meat Company in the province of Ciego de Avila, Cuba, were determined. The evaluation comprised 90 913 animals. The main causes of condemnation were the so called milk spots and cysticercosis in the liver, parasitic lesions produced by Stephanurus dentatus, and others in the kidneys, such as renal cysts, contamination and nephritis, and the occurrence of pericarditis.

Keywords : swine; cystercosis; stephanurosis; parasitism; pericarditis; sacrifice.
