Expiratory flow limitation during exercise in COPD: detection by manual compression of the abdominal wall. (1/300)

Manual compression of the abdomen (MCA) during spontaneous expiration is a simple method for the detection of flow limitation in the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients during resting breathing, based on comparison of flow/volume curves obtained during MCA with that of the preceding control breath. It was assessed whether this nonstandardized technique is also feasible during exercise. MCA was performed during resting breathing and constant-exercise work at one- and two-thirds maximal mechanical power output (W'max) in six normal subjects and 12 COPD patients. Changes in end-expiratory lung volume (EELV) were also studied. With the aid of inspection, abdominal palpation and lung auscultation, MCA could always be applied during expiration. Flow limitation was never detected in the six normal subjects, whereas four of the COPD patients were flow limited at rest, seven during exercise at one-third W'max and nine during exercise at two-thirds W'max. Expiratory flow limitation detected by MCA was always associated with an increase in EELV during exercise, indicating dynamic hyperinflation occurrence or increase. It is concluded that manual compression of the abdomen is a very simple and reliable method for the detection of flow limitation during exercise.  (+info)

How should an infected perinephric haematoma be drained in a tetraplegic patient with baclofen pump implanted in the abdominal wall? - A case report. (2/300)

BACKGROUND: We present a case to illustrate controversies in percutaneous drainage of infected, perinephric haematoma in a tetraplegic patient, who had implantation of baclofen pump in anterior abdominal wall on the same side as perinephric haematoma. CASE PRESENTATION: A 56-year-old male with C-4 tetraplegia had undergone implantation of programmable pump in the anterior abdominal wall for intrathecal infusion of baclofen to control spasticity. He developed perinephric haematoma while he was taking warfarin as prophylactic for deep vein thrombosis. Perinephric haematoma became infected with a resistant strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and required percutaneous drainage. Positioning this patient on his abdomen without anaesthesia, for insertion of a catheter from behind, was not a realistic option. Administration of general anaesthesia in this patient in the radiology department would have been hazardous. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Percutaneous drainage was carried out by anterior approach under propofol sedation. The site of entry of percutaneous catheter was close to cephalic end of baclofen pump. By carrying out drainage from anterior approach, and by keeping this catheter for ten weeks, we took a risk of causing infection of the baclofen pump site, and baclofen pump with a resistant strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The alternative method would have been to anaesthetise the patient and position him prone for percutaneous drainage of perinephric collection from behind. This would have ensured that the drainage track was far away from the baclofen pump with minimal risk of infection of baclofen pump, but at the cost of incurring respiratory complications in a tetraplegic subject.  (+info)

Presence of Chlamydia pneumoniae in abdominal aortic aneurysms is not associated with increased activity of matrix metalloproteinases. (3/300)

OBJECTIVE: to test the hypothesis that the presence of Chlamydia pneumoniae (C. pneumoniae) in the wall of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) is associated with increased activity of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and/or MMP-9. DESIGN: case-control study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: in a series of 40 patients with AAA > or =5cm in maximal cross-sectional diameter, C. pneumoniae-DNA was identified in the aneurysm wall by nested PCR in 14 (35%) patients. Another 14 C. pneumoniae-DNA-negative AAA patients from the same series, matched for gender and aneurysm diameter, were used as controls. In each group there were 7 asymptomatic (aAAA) and 7 ruptured (rAAA) aneurysms. MMP-2 and -9 activity was estimated in AAA wall biopsies by gelatin zymography. RESULTS: patients with a C. pneumoniae-DNA-positive aneurysm wall specimen showed an over-all lower activity of MMP-2 and MMP-9 (pro- and active enzyme) compared to the C. pneumoniae-DNA negative patients. However, there were no statistically significant differences in MMP activity between the two groups of patients with aAAA. Among patients with rAAA both pro-MMP-9 (p=0,026) and active-MMP-9 (p=0.007) were significantly lower in C. pneumoniae-DNA-positive patients compared to C. pneumoniae-DNA-negative patients, whereas there were no significant differences in pro-MMP-2 or active-MMP-2. CONCLUSION: this preliminary study does not support the hypothesis that the presence of C. pneumoniae in the AAA wall is associated with increased activity of MMP-2 and MMP-9.  (+info)

Involvement of the mural thrombus as a site of protease release and activation in human aortic aneurysms. (4/300)

Acquired abdominal aortic aneurysms are usually associated with a mural thrombus through which blood continues to flow. Some early data suggest that aneurysmal evolution correlates with the biological activity of the thrombus. Our hypothesis was therefore that the thrombus could adsorb blood components and store, release, and participate in the activation of proteases involved in aneurysmal evolution. For this purpose, we have explored both the metalloproteinase and fibrinolytic systems in the thrombus and the wall of human aneurysms. We have first investigated blood clot formation and lysis in vitro. Spontaneous clotting induces a release of promatrix metalloproteinase (pro-MMP)-9 into the serum that was fourfold higher than in paired control plasma (P < 0.001). Fibrinolysis progressively released more MMP-9 in a time-dependent manner (P < 0.01). After selective isolation, we demonstrated that polymorphonuclear leukocytes are the main source of MMP-9 release during clot formation. Protease content was then analyzed in 35 mural thrombi and walls of human abdominal aortic aneurysms sampled during surgical repair. In 15 aneurysms, the liquid phase at the interface between the thrombus and the wall was sampled separately. Both thrombus and wall contained MMP-2 and MMP-9 but the ratio MMP-9/MMP-2 was higher in the thrombus than in the wall. The liquid interface also contained active MMP-9. Immunohistochemistry of the thrombus confirmed these findings, showing the presence of polymorphonuclear leukocytes at the luminal pole of the thrombus, co-localizing with MMP-9 storage. In contrast, MMP-3 and MMP-7 were only present in the aneurysmal wall. Plasminogen was present in the mural thrombus but plasmin activity was present in both thrombus and wall. In the liquid interface, plasmin-alpha(2)-anti-plasmin complexes were detected demonstrating in vivo the activation of plasminogen. In contrast, u-PA and t-PA were detectable only in the wall, suggesting that plasminogen present in the thrombus could be activated by factors secreted by the arterial wall. This was demonstrated in vitro, in which co-incubation of thrombus and wall extracts generated plasmin in the presence of a fibrin matrix and activated MMPs. In conclusion, our study strongly suggests that the mural thrombus, by trapping polymorphonuclear leukocytes and adsorbing plasma components could act as a source of proteases in aneurysms that may play a critical role in enlargement and rupture.  (+info)

The tetrapeptide AcSDKP, an inhibitor of primitive hematopoietic cell proliferation, induces angiogenesis in vitro and in vivo. (5/300)

The tetrapeptide acetyl-Ser-Asp-Lys-Pro (AcSDKP), purified from bone marrow and constitutively synthesized in vivo, belongs to the family of negative regulators of hematopoiesis. It protects the stem cell compartment from the toxicity of anticancer drugs and irradiation and consequently contributes to a reduction in marrow failure. This current work provides experimental evidence for another novel biologic function of AcSDKP. We report that AcSDKP is a mediator of angiogenesis, as measured by its ability to modulate endothelial cell function in vitro and angiogenesis in vivo. AcSDKP at nanomolar concentrations stimulates in vitro endothelial cell migration and differentiation into capillary-like structures on Matrigel as well as enhances the secretion of an active form of matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1). In vivo, AcSDKP promotes a significant angiogenic response in the chicken embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) and in the abdominal muscle of the rat. Moreover, it induces the formation of blood vessels in Matrigel plugs implanted subcutaneously in the rat. This is the first report demonstrating the ability of AcSDKP to interact directly with endothelial cells and to elicit an angiogenic response in vitro and in vivo.  (+info)

The ultrasonic trocar provides an easy, sharp, bloodless, and repeatable approach to the abdominal cavity. (6/300)

Reusable trocars have the advantage of being more cost-effective than disposable trocars. However, the reusable trocar does lose its sharpness on insertion with repetitive insertion. Nonreusable trocars are expensive, but the sharpness of the knife facilitates insertion. Nonreusable trocars have a safety shield system designed to decrease abdominal organ injury, though the potential problem of bleeding from the abdominal wall port site has yet to be resolved. We therefore developed a novel ultrasonic vibrating trocar that does not lose its sharpness even with repetitive insertion. This trocar prevents bleeding by means of an ultrasonic cavitation effect. The ultrasonic vibrating trocar has the advantage of ease of insertion, and the force required for new reusable trocar insertion was only 34% of the force required for insertion of commercially available nonreusable trocars. The force required for multiply used conventional reusable ultrasonic vibrating trocar insertion, ie, 900 insertions, was maintained at less than 46% of the force required by the corresponding nonreusable trocars. Bleeding from the abdominal wall was prevented by an ultrasonic cavitation effect.  (+info)

The abdominal compartment syndrome following aortic surgery. (7/300)

BACKGROUND: multi-organ failure is a leading cause of death following aneurysm surgery, especially in the emergency setting. Intra-abdominal hypertension is an important factor in the development of multi-organ failure. Prevention, early recognition and prompt treatment of abdominal hypertension and the abdominal compartment syndrome may reduce mortality following aneurysm surgery. METHODS: a descriptive review of the literature from a Medline search. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: the abdominal compartment syndrome is the result of diverse physiological effects caused by increased intra-abdominal pressure. The syndrome has been most widely described in trauma victims, but occurs in patients following aortic surgery, particularly following ruptured aneurysm repair. Preventative therapy should be instituted to minimise its development in patients at risk, and monitoring of intra-abdominal pressure may allow prompt treatment of this condition.  (+info)

Definitive surgical treatment of infected or exposed ventral hernia mesh. (8/300)

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the difficulties in dealing with infected or exposed ventral hernia mesh, and to illustrate one solution using an autogenous abdominal wall reconstruction technique. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: The definitive treatment for any infected prosthetic material in the body is removal and substitution. When ventral hernia mesh becomes exposed or infected, its removal requires a solution to prevent a subsequent hernia or evisceration. METHODS: Eleven patients with ventral hernia mesh that was exposed, nonincorporated, with chronic drainage, or associated with a spontaneous enterocutaneous fistula were referred by their initial surgeons after failed local wound care for definitive management. The patients were treated with radical en bloc excision of mesh and scarred fascia followed by immediate abdominal wall reconstruction using bilateral sliding rectus abdominis myofascial advancement flaps. RESULTS: Four of the 11 patients treated for infected mesh additionally required a bowel resection. Transverse defect size ranged from 8 to 18 cm (average 13 cm). Average procedure duration was 3 hours without bowel repair and 5 hours with bowel repair. Postoperative length of stay was 5 to 7 days without bowel repair and 7 to 9 days with bowel repair. Complications included hernia recurrence in one case and stitch abscesses in two cases. Follow-up ranges from 6 to 54 months (average 24 months). CONCLUSIONS: Removal of infected mesh and autogenous flap reconstruction is a safe, reliable, and one-step surgical solution to the problem of infected abdominal wall mesh.  (+info)

Laparoscopic surgery requires inflation of the abdominal cavity and this offers a unique opportunity to measure the mechanical properties of the living abdominal wall. We used a motion analysis system to study the abdominal wall motion of 18 patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery, and found that the mean Youngs modulus was 27.7+/-4.5 and 21.0+/-3.7 kPa for male and female, respectively. During inflation, the abdominal wall changed from a cylinder to a dome shape. The average expansion in the abdominal wall surface was 20%, and a working space of 1.27 x 10(-3)m(3) was created by expansion, reshaping of the abdominal wall and diaphragmatic movement. For the first time, the elasticity of human abdominal wall was obtained from the patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery, and a 3D simulation model of human abdominal wall has been developed to analyse the motion pattern in laparoscopic surgery. Based on this study, a mechanical abdominal wall lift and a surgical simulator for safe/ergonomic port

Endometriosis, a common gynecological condition, is defined as the presence of functioning endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. It often presents as a cyclic, hormonally stimulated pain in women during their reproductive years. While endometriosis is usually located within the pelvis, it may also occur at intraperitoneal, intestinal, perineal, and distant ectopic sites. Although often diffuse, a localized, focal mass of endometrial tissue is termed as an endometrioma. In rare occurrences, an endometrioma will present superficially to the peritoneum within the abdominal wall following gynecologic or obstetric surgery. The presence of an abdominal wall endometrioma within a cesarean section scar may pose a diagnostic dilemma, which is often misdiagnosed, and results in surgery referrals for treatment. The clinical symptoms and sonographic appearance of abdominal wall endometriomas occurring at cesarean section scars are highlighted in this case series.

Advances in surgical intensive care have improved survival in patients with major traumatic or infectious intra-abdominal insults. Patients who recover are often left with massive abdominal wall defects. Sufficient autogenous tissue may not be available for reconstruction and synthetic mesh followed by skin grafting can lead to unaesthetic results or complications. We report on four patients with abdominal wall defects and their reconstruction after intra-abdominal injury. Treatment involved local wound care to stimulate granulation tissue, which is eventually skin grafted to close the wound. Patients are then allowed to make a full recovery. Soft-tissue expanding prostheses are placed during a second operation and inflated over subsequent weeks. Finally, the skin graft is excised, a polytetrafluoroethylene patch is placed into the fascial defect, and the expanded skin is used to achieve wound closure.

Abdominal wall hernias can occur as a congenital deformity of the abdominal wall or as a result of a previous surgery. There are many techniques used to reconstruct abdominal wall hernias as well as there are many techniques to improve the appearance of the abdominal wall. In abdominal wall reconstruction, Strattice acelluar dermal matrix is used to share the load in hernia repair. In abdominoplasty, it is helpful to repair any rectus diastasis that may occur from previous pregnancies. The same techniques and principles that are used to repair a hernia can also be used to perform an abdominoplasty and vice-versa. That is the reconstructive surgeon can use reconstructive principles to improve aesthetic outcomes in abdominoplasty surgery. Scars that are red tend to be young scars and will fade over the course of 18-24 months.. ...

Large or complicated abdominal wall defects caused by recurrent incisional hernias, infections or tumor resections often require the use of prosthetic mesh, local tissue transposition or even distant muscle flaps for proper reconstruction. Due to the sometimes discouraging results of meshes muscle flaps are an appreciated alternative. We followed up a series of cases to assess the value of the pedicled rectus femoris muscle flap ...

Abstract:. The deposition of amyloid as a distinct, clinically apparent mass is uncommon particularly in the soft tissues. There have been no previously published case reports of abdominal wall involvement; thereby we are describing a case of AA amyloidoma which presented as an abdominal wall abscess without any evidence of systemic disease. The clinical and radiological findings suggested soft tissue abscess likely cysticercosis or a neoplastic process. This case demonstrates the importance of considering the possibility of amyloidoma in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue lesions.. ...

Figure 3. Photomicrograph revealed caseating granuloma with central necrosis, lymphocytes, and giant cells, consistent with tuberculosis.. Discussion TB of the anterior abdominal wall is a rare entity and only isolated cases are reported in the literature. Possible explanation for the rarity of muscle involvement in TB includes high lactic acid content, lack of reticulo-endothelial tissue in muscle, lack of lymphatic tissue, the abundant blood supply, and the highly-differentiated state of muscle tissue.4 Although none of them seems to be an adequate explanation, all theories (except the first one) have been criticized.2. Two forms of skeletal muscle involvement are recognized.5 In the first type the tuberculous process spreads into the muscle through direct extension from a neighbouring structure e.g. bone, joint, tendon, or lymph node. In the second type the spread is haematogenous. Our patient is of interest because she seems to have a primary tubercular anterior abdominal muscular lesion ...

While researching for the Fifth edition of my book Surgical Anatomy and Technique to be published by Springer and which I hope will be out this fall I came across this paper on stem cell therapy for abdominal wall reconstruction. Further review of the literature was scant regarding this particular application for stem cells. The orthopedists have seen good anecdotal results using the patients own stem cells. Further review of some of the literature shows that there is decreased ruptured of tendons and ligaments that had been treated with stem cells and repaired. What is out there does suggest that using the patients own stem cells may help decrease recurrences for large complex abdominal wall hernias. This treatment is not for everyone. It is intended for larger recurrent hernias requiring abdominal wall reconstruction.. ...
Abdominal wall tear symptoms - Is loosing weight initially associated with early symptom of ingenuial hernia? When abdominal wall weakens does blood test show anything? Hernias. Hernias can protrude with weight loss. The fat that was plugging the opening may shrink and allow fat or abdominal organs to protrude. You should start with a physical exam to see if your hernia can be felt. A general surgeon or general internist can examine you. If it is small, an ultrasound or ct scan can image the hernia. Blood tests will not help.

Results: Both groups were comparable in terms of age and gender. There was no difference in the average surgical time (80 vs 84 min, respectively, p › 0.05), nor in total complications (20 vs 32%, p › 0.05); neither in wound dehiscence, surgical site infection, fistula or intestinal occlusion between both groups (p › 0.05). Seromas were more frequent in the group of patients with IPOM technique using Proceed® mesh, with a relative risk of 1.59 (p = 0.06). The CI (1.08-2.35) revealed an association between seroma formation and use of the Proceed® mesh. The size of the abdominal wall defect was significantly greater in the group of patients included in the IPOM group with Proceed® mesh than in the group of ONLAY plasty using polypropylene mesh (12 vs 6 cm, p ‹ 0.05). Linear regression revealed that there is a relation between the size of the defect and seroma occurrence in the group of patients with IPOM technique using Proceed® mesh (regression coefficient 0.26, p ‹ 0.05). ...

In this discussion, reoperative surgery of the abdomen will refer to re-entry of the abdominal cavity prior to completion of the wound healing process from a prior abdominal procedure. Reoperation in this situation usually requires access to the abdominal cavity through the acute or subacute surgical wounds from the prior procedure. Repeated operation through this incompletely or minimally healed wound portends major complications in the abdominal wall (1).

Background: The current approach in stab wounds of the anterior abdominal wall is still unclear. Objectives: The goal of this study was to evaluate serial clinical examinations of patients with abdominal wall stab wounds referred to Poursina Hospital in Rasht. Patients and Methods: In a cross sectional study, 100 cases with stab wounds to the anterior abdominal wall were examined serially (admission time, 4, 8, 12, and 24 hours) after wound exploration. Serial hemoglobin test was performed every 8 hours. Laparotomy was performed in cases who were not hemodynamically stable or who showed symptoms of peritonitis. The results were analyzed with SPSS software version 21. Results: Ninety-one men (91%) and 9 women (9%) with mean age of 27 ± 10.7 years were included. Coexisting injuries were prevalent in 12 cases. The duration of hospitalization was 1 day in 31%, 2 days in 30%, 3 - 4 days in 32% and more than 5 days in 7%. Late laparotomy was performed 12 hours after admission in 8% of patients due to
Omphalocele (or exomphalos) is a herniation of the abdominal viscera through a midline abdominal wall defect (Fig 1). This defect is located at the base of the umbilical stalk, and herniated viscera are covered by a 3-layer membrane of peritoneum, Wharton jelly, and amnion. This contrasts with umbilical cord hernias, which are covered by intact skin and contain only a small protrusion of abdominal contents, and gastroschisis, which has no covering at all and occurs to the right of midline (Table). Omphaloceles are present in approximately 1 per 1,100 pregnancies. However, there is a high rate of spontaneous abortion, making the incidence of omphalocele per live birth approximately 1 per 4,000 to 1 per 6,000. (1) … ...

ISSN 1678-2674. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-86502011000800008.. PURPOSE: To evaluate the influence of sepsis in the process of wound healing in the abdominal wall. METHODS: 40 rats divided into two groups of twenty animals: group of study (E) - septic, and the control group (C) - not septic. The two groups were divided into subgroups of 10 to be killed on the third day (n = 10) or seventh (n = 10) postoperative. Sepsis was induced by ligation and puncture of the cecum. We performed also the section and anastomosis in left colon. The synthesis of the abdominal wall was made with 3-0 silk thread. On the day of re-laparotomy, the abdominal wall was removed for analysis of the breaking strength and histopathological analysis. RESULTS: The mean breaking strength was at third day: E group (1.44 ± 1.22) and C group ...

N2 - Freeze-dried human dura mater has been used as an allograft for reconstructive gynecologic surgery since 1980. So far, 33 grafts have been placed. This versatile and immunologically inert material has been used to reconstruct the pelvic floor after exenterative procedures, replace rectus fascia in the repair of wound dehiscence and ventral or parastomal hernias, and cover the femoral vessels after nodal dissection. In seven patients, dura mater was grafted into infected sites without subsequent rejection. Biopsy of an allograft one year after implantation confirmed the natural tendency of the body to convert the dura mater to a viable and neovascularized tissue. This reconstructive material is a safe and versatile ...

Marjolins ulcer is defined as a malignant, ulcerating neoplasm occurring in cicatricial tissue, and is thought to be more aggressive than the other more common varieties of skin cancers. Butterworths Medical Dictionary (MacNalty, 1965) now defines Marjolins ulcer as any cancer arising in association with a chronic sinus, ulcer or scar. Cases of squamous cell carcinoma arising in the abdominal wall from a scar (non burn scar) are extremely rare (Fleming et al., 1990). Was conducted a literature review and was found two case report, this being the third report in the literature (Franke and Chung, 2010; García et al., 2006). A 40 years old female admitted with complaints of an ulceoproliferative growth of left lower abdominal wall of two months duration. The ulcer was a non traumatic and non burn type.

The meeting of the Publication Evidence Based Telemedicine - Trauma and Emergency Surgery (TBE-CiTE), through literature review, selected three recent articles on the treatment of victims stab wounds to the abdominal wall. The first study looked at the role of computed tomography (CT) in the treatment of patients with stab wounds to the abdominal wall. The second examined the use of laparoscopy over serial physical examinations to evaluate patients in need of laparotomy. The third did a review of surgical exploration of the abdominal wound, use of diagnostic peritoneal lavage and CT for the early identification of significant lesions and the best time for intervention. There was consensus to laparotomy in the presence of hemodynamic instability or signs of peritonitis, or evisceration. The wound should be explored under local anesthesia and if there is no injury to the aponeurosis the patient can be discharged. In the presence of penetration into the abdominal cavity, serial abdominal ...

ABDOMINOPLASTY or TUMMY TUCK (DERMOLIPECTOMY) If youre considering an abdominoplasty.... Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The procedure can dramatically reduce a protruding abdomen. With abdominoplasty we not only eliminate stretch marks and scars located below the navel line but we can also correct hernias, and other defects of the abdominal wall. If youre considering body contouring, this information will help provide a basic understanding of what an abdominoplasty can and cannot achieve. Because fatty deposits and loosen skin affects each individual patient differently no amount of written information can replace a personal consultation with Dr. Gomez-Mendoza and his team. The following information is strictly the opinion of Dr. Gomez-and his associates and pertains to his personal technique of abdominoplasty and other body contouring ...

To appropriately report the delayed definitive closure of the open abdomen, the condition of the abdomen, abdominal wall, and soft tissue around the open defect will help to determine the best combination of CPT codes to report. Many abdominal wounds need some form of debridement prior to, or at the time of, definitive closure. CPT codes 11042-11047 are debridement codes arranged by depth and size of debridement.. For some patients with a recent open abdomen, the fascial edges, subcutaneous tissue, and skin can all be mobilized and then closed primarily. In this instance, the abdominal wall functions as one unit that can be re-approximated to itself, and there is not a fascial defect, per se. Where this type of closure can be accomplished, report CPT code 49900 (suture, secondary, of abdominal wall for evisceration or dehiscence).. If the entire abdominal wall cannot be closed primarily, then coverage of an open abdominal wound may be achieved with autograft skin, tissue cultured skin, or skin ...

Introduction. Pleural mesothelioma with metastasis to the subcutaneous tissue of the abdominal wall at first diagnosis and without penetration into the peritoneum is an extremely rare clinical presentation. Pleural mesothelioma is a malignant neoplasm of mesodermal origin and arises from multipotential mesothelial or subserosal cells of the pleura, pericardium and peritoneum.. Aims and objectives. This is the first clinical documentation of pleura mesothelioma simultaneously metastasized to the subcutaneous tissue of the abdominal wall.. Methods. Patients with pleura mesothelioma have low survival rate. A 55- year- old man was referred to our center due to increasing dyspnea and a painful periumbilical mass in the anterior abdominal wall. CT- scan revealed both advanced mesothelioma of the pleura and a tumor mass confined to the subcutaneous fatty tissue without penetration through the peritoneum. Video assisted-thoracoscopy confirmed the diagnosis of epithelioid pleuramesothelioma, which was ...
Prior Abdominal Surgery. Prior abdominal surgeries are an indication for the vaginal route. Avoid the risks of trocar placement in women with prior GI surgeries by using the vagina as an access route to the abdomen. We have already discussed mitigation of anterior bladder adhesions or the obliterated posterior cul-de-sac. Other types of adhesions may be encountered. Women who have had prior cesareans may have adhesions of the anterior uterus to the anterior abdominal wall. This may be suspected intraoperatively by noting Sheths cervicofundal sign, which occurs when pulling on the cervix depresses the anterior abdominal wall. These type of adhesions are often the most difficult to manage but can usually be handled with sharp, intrafascial dissection. Laparoscopic-rescue might be necessary in severe cases. Adhesions of small bowel or omentum are usually easily managed with direct dissection after artificial prolapse of the uterus (and more easily handled with a pair of Metzenbaums than with a ...
Development of the ventral body wall in the human embryo{{#pmid:26467243,PMID26467243}} Initially, vertebrae and ribs had formed medially, and primordia of sternum and hypaxial flank muscle primordium laterally in the body wall at Carnegie Stage (CS){{CS15}} (5.5 weeks). The next week, ribs and muscle primordium expanded in ventrolateral direction only. At CS{{CS18}} (6.5 weeks), separate intercostal and abdominal wall muscles differentiated, and ribs, sterna, and muscles began to expand ventromedially and caudally, with the bilateral sternal bars fusing in the midline after CS{{CS20}} (7 weeks) and the rectus muscles reaching the umbilicus at CS{{CS23}} (8 weeks). The near-constant absolute distance between both rectus muscles and approximately fivefold decline of this distance relative to body circumference between 6 and 10 weeks identified dorsoventral growth in the dorsal body wall as determinant of the closure of the ventral body wall. Concomitant with the straightening of the ...
A birth defect may affect how the body looks, works, or both. Many birth defects are mild, but some can be severe. Babies with birth defects may need surgery or medical treatment. Most birth defects occur during the first 3 months of pregnancy and others appear at birth or later in life. Some of the most common birth defects found through screening tests include:. Neural tube defect: Incomplete closure of the fetal spine that can result in spina bifida or anencephaly. Abdominal wall defects: One type of defect occurs when the muscle and skin that cover the wall of the abdomen are missing and the bowel sticks out through a hole in the abdominal wall (gastroschisis). Another type is when the tissue around the umbilical cord is weak and allows organs to protrude into this area (omphalocele). Heart defect: The chambers or pathways through the heart are not properly developed. Down syndrome: Mental retardation, abnormal features of the face, and medical problems such as heart defects occur as a ...

The Edinburgh Stereoscopic Atlas of Anatomy. Section V-No. 5. Abdomen. Abdominal cavity-No. 1. The anterior abdominal wall has been removed, and the costal margin exposed. The usual subdivision of the abdominal cavity into nine regions by two horizontal and two vertical planes is shown by wires. The vertical wires extend upwards from the middle of Pouparts ligament. The lower horizontal ones extend between the tubercles on the outer lip of the crest of each ilium, and the upper ones pass between the lowest points of the tenth costal arches. The position of the umbilicus is indicated by the letter U. The great omentum is a double fold of peritoneum, attached to the greater curvature of the stomach on the one hand, and passing downwards for a variable distance. It then turns upwards, and envelops the transverse colon, and is continued on to the posterior abdominal wall as the transverse meso-colon. A portion of the transverse colon comes into view in this specimen, on account of the contraction ...
OBJECTIVE: To determine if Fetal Abdominal Subcutaneous Tissue (FAST) measurements using antenatal ultrasound differ between male and female fetuses. STUDY DESIGN: Women who had an ultrasound examination for fetal growth between 20 and 40 weeks gestation were studied. Women with diabetes mellitus were excluded. The fetal anterior abdominal subcutaneous tissue was measured on the anterior abdominal wall in millimetres anterior to the margins of the ribs, using magnification at the level of the abdominal circumference. The fetal sex was recorded after delivery. RESULTS: A total of 557 fetuses were measured, 290 male and 267 female. The FAST measurements increased with gestational age. The FAST increased at the same rate for both male and female fetuses and at any given week there was no sex difference. CONCLUSIONS: The increased fat composition in females reported after birth was not found in abdominal wall subcutaneous fat measurements using ultrasound during pregnancy. Antenatal centile charts ...

The middle layer of muscle in the abdominal wall consists of a few named muscles, of which the internal oblique is the largest contributor. In addition to the large internal oblique muscle sheet, there are small sets of muscle fibers that develop from this plane - a series of lumbar intertransversarii muscles and the fibers of the cremaster muscle in the male. As in other body wall regions this muscle plane is superficial to the major vessels and nerves of the abdominal body wall ...
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an option if you have complaints of excess abdominal skin with or without pooching of the lower abdomen. The excess skin can be seen after pregnancy or weight loss and is due to loss of skin elasticity associated with stretch marks. Pooching or prominence of the abdomen may be seen after pregnancy and is caused by separation of the abdominal rectus muscles resulting in weakness of the abdominal wall. The excess skin or pooching cannot be corrected by exercise.. The excess skin and pooching of the lower abdomen may inhibit exercising, make you self conscious during intimacy, or prohibit you from wearing certain styles of clothing. A tummy tuck will improve the contour of the abdomen and the scars are placed to allow concealment with most styles of clothing.. An abdominoplasty consists of three parts; excision of excess skin, tightening of the rectus muscles, and transposition of the navel (umbilicus).
