Cover Story : 
Okuyama et al. reported a transvaginal endoscopy-based technique for conducting ovarian examination in sows in a standing position. Sows were sedated in pig stalls, and their vaginal walls were punctured. Subsequently, a urethroscope was inserted into their abdomen, and an examination was conducted after their ovaries had moved towards the urethroscope camera via rectal palpation (Okuyama MW, et al. A transvaginal endoscopy-based technique for performing ovarian examinations in sows. pp. 617–622). This less invasive procedure without the use of general anesthesia may allow repeated ovarian examinations and increase our understanding of the ovarian dynamics in pigs.
