Biopsy report came back as insufficient for assigning a Kenny grade. Before spending more money to redo, does this look like a 111?
The epithelium is composed of medium to tall columnar cells. Occasional scattered lymphocytes are noted throughout the stratum compactum and stratum spongiosum. There is moderate glandular density. Endometrial glands are lined by medium to high epitheal cells. Glands are linear and multifocally contain moderate amounts of eosinophilic material. A single glandular nest is cuffed by six layers of fibroblasts. there is a single eosinophil in this fibrosis. Special staining for elastic fibers demonstate mild deposition.

Mare was cultured neg. prior to 1st breeding. Recultured with cytology (neg) and biopsy report above.
Vet wants to do DMSO lavages. I would like to know more about them.Is the purpose to irritate the uterus or take out inflamation? I would like to be able to use this mare again as a broodmare if possible, but if she can't I don't want to keeps messing with her. Oxytocin was used 1 dose 4 hrs after all breedings. Small amount of fluid was found only after the second breeding. She was ultrasounded 48 hrs after breeding.
Any ideas? Rebreed? Reculture? Let her rest? DMSO? Thanks for any input.
