Abdominal Wall Incision - Midline
Currently no guidelines available.
Step by step
Abdominal cavity approach
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.
To minimize postoperative scarring, the skin incision is placed preferably over old incision scars.
