Evaluation of Abdominal Wall Lifting During Laparoscopic Direct Trocar Insertion
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
In laparoscopy, over %50 of the all complications occur during establishment of the pneumoperitoneum. Lifting of the anterior abdominal wall is aimed to increase the distance between the abdominal wall and the intrabdominal structures. Elevation of the anterior abdominal wall is recommended for the access to peritoneal cavity in literatures however the benefit exactly has not proved. This study aimed to determine the distance from anterior abdominal wall to intraperitoneal structures during lifting of the abdominal wall, to represent this distance -on the average- generate the safe range whether or not and compare with this distance and patient's age, BMI and parity.
Condition or disease
Other Surgical Procedures
40 patients who undergoing laparoscopic surgery for various indications are enrolled in the study. The telescope is inserted at second trocar place and the distances between anterior abdominal wall and visceral organs are measured with plastic hysterometry during maximal elevation of the abdominal wall.
The primary outcome measure of this study is to determine the distance in centimeters from anterior abdominal wall to intraperitoneal visceral structures during lifting of the abdominal wall with plastic hysterometry. [ Time Frame: 2-3 months ]
