Is the Anterior Superior Iliac Spine a Useful Landmark at Laparoscopy?

2014-07-23 21:09:44 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to study port symmetry and the incidence of anterior abdominal wall neuropathy associated with gynaecological surgery.


We plan to study patients undergoing gynaecological laparoscopy. Patients will be randomized to two techniques for determining where to position the right and left lateral laparoscopic ports, and port symmetry will be assessed at the end of surgery. We also plan to study patients undergoing any type of gynaecological surgery to determine the incidence of sensory neuropathy involving the lower abdomen according to the route of surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

CONNECTIVE TISSUE of the anterior compartment of the THIGH that has its origins on the anterior aspect of the iliac crest and anterior superior iliac spine, and its insertion point on the iliotibial tract. It plays a role in medial rotation of the THIGH, steadying the trunk, and in KNEE extension.

Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of any one of the iliac arteries including the common, the internal, or the external ILIAC ARTERY.

Inferior and external epigastric arteries arise from external iliac; superficial from femoral; superior from internal thoracic. They supply the abdominal muscles, diaphragm, iliac region, and groin. The inferior epigastric artery is used in coronary artery bypass grafting and myocardial revascularization.

The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
