Using an absorbable suture material like chromic catgut for subcuticular closure allows early discharge since there is no need to remove the suture.

Contributed by Mika Sinanan, MD and his staff at the University of Washington Medical School When the diagnosis of appendicitis is clear, the McBurney incision is one of two incisions used for appendectomy. This is the classic location of the appendix. Since the appendix is a mobile part of the body, it may be found in various places in the right lower quadrant.

For best exposure, incision should be adapted after physical examination at the maximum point of tenderness. This incision is usually made parallel with the course of the fibers of the external oblique fascia, one or two inches cephalad to the anterior superior spine of the ilium. The Rocky-Davis incision provides another option. Unlike the McBurney incision, it is a straight transverse at the skin and splits the muscle.

Again, either incision is made as long as necessary to achieve adequate exposure. Thin people require a smaller incision than obese patients.

Those patients with an anterior appendix are usually easier to manage through a small incision, as opposed to retrocecal appendices which require an extended incision. Extending the right lower quadrant incision for greater exposure usually requires either medial extension opening the rectus fascia and displacing the rectus muscle medially, or a second midline incision.

The second midline incision may be considered in patients with pathology that extends beyond the right lower quadrant. Back to Incision Index.


Rockey-Davis incision

Vulkree Wide lateral extension of the incision can be affected by combination of division and roc,ey of the oblique muscles along the line of their fibres in the lateral direction Weir extension Askew, The healing of this incision is very good even though many of the patients are anaemic and have some degree of uremia. Open in a separate window. This transverse incision is preferred by many for the removal of appendix because it gives a better cosmeticscar on healing and the incision can easily be extended medially during surgery if needed. The opening is enlarged to permit introduction of two index fingers between the muscle fibres so that internal oblique and transversus can be retracted with a minimal amount of damage. If necessary for exposure, the ligament can be divided between clamps and ligated. Risk of anterior abdominal wall adhesions increases with number and type of previous laparotomy. Inguinal Incision This is the standard incision for inguinal herniorrhaphy.

Abrir el peritoneo con el mayor cuidado y en el extremo superior para evitar lesionar la vejiga. Se ubica de 2. Se abre la vaina posterior del recto y el peritoneo en sentido vertical. La capa posterior de la vaina de los rectos no existe por debajo del pliegue semilunar de Douglas. La hoja posterior y peritoneo se cortan en el mismo plano sagital que la hoja anterio. PowerPoint Presentation: Puede extenderse angulando su extremo superior o inferior hacia adentro apendice xifoides o pubis.



IP: Pfannenstiel incision Midline incision or midline laparotomy — The most common incision for laparotomy is the midline incision, a vertical incision which follows the linea alba. Midline incisions are particularly favoured in diagnostic laparotomy, as they allow wide access to most of the abdominal cavity. The upper midline incision usually extends from the xiphoid process to the umbilicus. A typical lower midline incision is limited by the umbilicus superiorly and by the pubic symphysis inferiorly. Sometimes a single incision extending from xiphoid process to pubic symphysis is employed, especially in trauma surgery. Typically, a smooth curve is made around the umbilicus.


Darisar The small eighth thoracic nerve will almost invariably be divided; the large ninth nerve must be seen and preserved to prevent weakening of the abdominal musculature. This is the classic location of the appendix. American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 6: Journal of The Anatomical Society of India 49 1: Symmetrical periumbilical extension of a midline incision: However, if palpation reveals a mass, the incision can be placed directly over the mass. This is extension of the McBurney incision by division of the oblique fossa and can be used for a right or left sided colonic resection, caecostomy or sigmoid colostomy. Transverse and oblique incisions can be placed in any of the four quadrants of the abdomen depending on the site of pathology.
