The successful management of the left-side abomasal displacement (LDA) is based on number of decisions. The first question is to treat the individual cow at all, and secondly the used solution form of LDA. This decision based on some variable economic factors such as the owner's interest in treatment, cost of treatment, economic loss, prognosis for return to production, future income from production and slaughter value of the cow. The authors give a review of the different repositioning methods of LDA: right paralumbal fossa omentopexy, right paramedian abomasopexy, left paralumbal fossa abomasopexy, blind track, blind toggle-pin technique, laparoscopy assisted toggle-pin and rolling. Although, each technique has unique features, the advantages and the disadvantages of the solution forms of LDA can be discussed and grouped into four main practical categories: position of the animal, direct/indirect approach of LDA, the form of abomasal fixation and invasivity of the different methods.
