Step by step

Abdominal cavity approach

Upper abdomen

Incise

This approach is described in the course ‘Abdominal wall approaches’ under midline incision.
Upon entering the peritoneal cavity by dissection, the greater omentum is separated from adhesions in case of previous abdominal surgery.

Dissection after adhesion formation

Pathological adhesion formation can complicate the dissection of the greater omentum. It may be helpful to work on the anti-mesenteric side (no fat tissue) of the small intestine to prevent possible damage to the arteries.
