Title: Hardware Disease of Cattle
Author: Moseley, Bonnard Lyle
Keywords: traumatic gastritis
traumatic reticulitis
hardware disease
Date: 1993-10
Publisher: University of Missouri Extension
Abstract: Hardware disease is produced by a sharp object that pierces the stomach wall and gains access to the heart. A sharp object, such as a nail or piece of wire, may perforate into the heart sac. The object lies originally in a chamber of the stomach known as the reticulum. The reticulum "catches" all heavy objects that are ingested; feed and lighter material pass back into the rumen. When muscles contract, the "hardware" may be forced through the wall of the reticulum, diaphragm and heart sac.
