The bovines are at a high risk of torsion of uterus around last trimester of pregnancy, mostly the start of parturition process. The prevalence of torsion of uterus increases the adrenocortical activity and affects the blood vascular cellular components followed by deteriorate the metabolism of liver, kidney and muscular system. The recorded haemato-biochemical compounds varies according to severity of torsion. Based on the extent of haemato-biochemical alteration, prognosis of dam described. Prognosis of the dam best when duration of torsion is less than 24-36 hours and worsens with the further increase in the time. The present review provides the reader an overview of the pathophysiology and haemato-biochemical changes following uterine torsion.

Key words: Bovine; Dystocia; Pathophysiology; Prognosis; Uterine torsion
