Abstract

This study aimed to report the survival time and to determine factors influencing survival time in cats with arterial
thromboembolism (ATE) in Thailand. The medical records of 89 ATE cats presenting from January 2016 to December
2018 at four referral centers in Thailand were reviewed. The median survival time of ATE cats was 31 days (interquartile
range 3-59 days). Cats with an age of at least 5 years (7 days; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0-25.961) had a shorter
survival time than those with an age <5 years old (136 days; 95% CI 0-643.216) (p=0.021). Persian cats (450 days; 95%
CI 0-37.552) had a longer survival time than other breed cats (15 days; 95% CI 0.799-7.201) (p=0.044). The multivariable
Cox-regression analysis showed that a higher concentration of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (p=0.002; Hazard ratios
(HR)=1.002), circulating glucose (p=0.031; HR=1.005), and creatinine (p=0.011; HR=1.207) were associated with an
increased risk of death. In conclusion, the survival time of cats with ATE in Thailand is reported. Age and breed
influence the survival time of cats with ATE. The concentration of ALT, circulating glucose and creatinine is associated
with an increased risk of death.
