Acute abdominal pain, better known as colic in horses is presented frequently and is caused by different mechanisms, and it can be classified: simple obstruction in the small intestine (íleal impaction, adhesions and foreign bodies), simple obstruction of intestine (cecal impaction, impaction of the large colon, enteroliths, impaction by sand, displacement of the large colon). Most of colic usually resolves spontaneously, but when they exceed the periods of resolution this is an indicator that there is a more serious problem that should be valued. In this paper we report the case of a mare (Equs caballus) of native colombian horse with expressions of colic, which was diagnosed and treated through exploratory laparotomy, as well as describing the correa technique using for closing the abdominal cavity on the white line during one abdominal laparotomy surgery, that make easier the manipulation and exteriorization of the gastrointestinal tract in horses.
