Step by step

Abdominal cavity approach

Skin

Incise

Incise the skin in the midline, just cranial to the area of interest and extend the incision during the procedure when needed. Go left around or straight through the umbilicus, as the ligamentum teres hepatis with the paraumbilical veins are situated on the right side of the umbilicus.

Incision scarring

To minimize postoperative scarring, the skin incision is placed preferably over old incision scars.
