Is the Anterior Superior Iliac Spine a Useful Landmark at Laparoscopy?
Anterior Superior Iliac Spine - A Useful Surface Anatomical Landmark for Safe and Symmetric Accessory Laparoscopic Port Entry
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.
Interventional
Not Applicable
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Surgical Techniques
  • Laparoscopy
  • Procedure: Anterior superior iliac spine
    The position of the right and left laparoscopic port sites will be determined by palpation of the nearby anterior superior iliac spine of the pelvic bone.
    Other Name: Bony landmark
  • Procedure: Control
    The position of the right and left laparoscopic port sites will be determined by visual inspection of the anterior abdominal wall.
    Other Name: Visual
  • Experimental: Anterior superior iliac spine
    The position of the right and left laparoscopic port sites will be determined by palpation of the nearby anterior superior iliac spine of the pelvic bone.
    Intervention: Procedure: Anterior superior iliac spine
  • Active Comparator: Control
    The position of the right and left laparoscopic port sites will be determined by visual inspection of the anterior abdominal wall.
    Intervention: Procedure: Control
