Flashcards in Lecture 4 Deck (26):
Vertical midline incisions are aka
Suprapubic incisions are used for:
abdominal hysterectomy, LSCS
External obliques and internal obliques proximal attachment
External obliques distal attachment
Iliac crest, pubic tubercle, linea alba
External oblique fibres run in the same direction as
External intercostal muscles (vice versa for internal)
Internal obliques distal attachment
Thoracolumbar fascia, iliac crest, linea alba
Attachments of transversus abdominis are the same as ?
What muscles have tendinous intersections that divide them into smaller muscle sections?
Rectus abdominis (6 pack)
Where does the linea alba run from and to?
Xiphoid process to pubic tubercle
What is the rectus sheath
Combined aponeuroses of anterolateral abdominal wall muscles, surrounds the rectus abdominis
Name given to the 7th to 11th intercostal nerves
Subcostal nerve root
Ilioinguinal nerve root
Iliohypogastric nerve root
Nerves supplying the anterolateral body wall travel between which 2 muscles?
Internal oblique and transversus abdominis
Superior epigastric arteries branch from
The internal thoracic artery
Inferior epigastric arteries branch from
The external iliac artery
Blood supply to ANTERIOR abdominal wall
Superior and inferior epigastric arteries
Blood supply to LATERAL abdominal wall
Intercostal and subcostal arteries
Intercostal and subcostal arteries branch from
Posterior intercostal arteries
Where do epigastric arteries lies relative to rectus abdominis
What happens to the rectus abdominis muscles in a LCSC incision?
They are separated
What kind of laparoscopic incisions are there?
Subumbilical incision, lateral ports
When making a lateral port incision, what structure do you need to be wary of?
Inferior epigastric arteries
Path of the inferior epigastric arteries
Emerges just medial to the deep inguinal ring then travels superomedially
