What is a Billroth I?

Antrectomy with gastroduodenostomy

Jejunojejunostomy forming a Y-shaped figure of small bowel.
The free end can then be anastomosed to a second hollow structure (e.g. esophagojejunostomy)


What is a Brooke ileostomy?

Standard ileostomy that is folded on itself to protrude from the abdomen 2 cm to allow easy appliance placement and collection of succus

Removal of atherosclerotic plaque from a carotid artery


What is a Bassini herniorrhaphy?

Repair of inguinal hernia by approximating transversus abdominis aponeurosis and the conjoint tendon to the reflection of Poupart's ligament


What is a McVay herniorrhaphy?

Repair of inguinal hernia by approximating the transversus abdominis aponeurosis and the conjoint tendon to Cooper's ligament


What is a Lichtenstein herniorrhaphy?

Tension-free inguinal hernia repair using mesh


What is a Shouldice herniorrhaphy?

Repair of inguinal hernia by imbrication of the transversus abdominis fascia, transversus abdominis aponeurosis, and the conjoint tendon and approximation of the transversus abdominis aponeurosis and the conjoint tendon to the inguinal ligament


What is a plug and patch hernia repair?

Prosthetic plug pushes hernia sac in and then is covered with a prosthetic patch to repair inguinal hernia


What is an APR?

AbdominoPerineal Resection:
Removal of the rectum and sigmoid colon through abdominal and perineal incisions (patient is left with a colostomy).
Used for low rectal cancers < 8 cm from the anal verge.


What is an LAR?

Low Anterior Resection:
Resection of low rectal tumors through an anterior abdominal incision


What is Hartmann's procedure?

1. Proximal colostomy
2. Distal stapled-off colon or rectum that is left in peritoneal cavity


What is a mucous fistula?

Distal end of the colon is brought to the abdominal skin as a stoma (proximal end is brought up to skin as an end colostomy)


What is a Kocher maneuver?

Dissection of the duodenum from the right-sided peritoneal attachment to allow mobilization and visualization of the back of the duodenum and pancreas


What is the Seldinger technique?

Placement of a central line by first placing a wire in the vein, followed by placing the catheter over the wire


What is a cricothyroidotomy?

Emergent surgical airway through the cricoid membrane


What is a hepaticojejunostomy?

Anastomosis between a jejunal roux limb and the hepatic ducts


What is a Puestow procedure?

Side-to-side anastomosis of the pancreas and jejunum (pancreatic due is filleted open)


What is a Stamm gastrostomy?

Gastrostomy place by open surgical incision and tacked to the abdominal wall


What is a highly selective vagotomy?

Transection of vagal fibers to the body of the stomach without interruption of fibers to the pylorus (does not need pyloroplasty or other drainage procedure because the pylorus should still function)


What is enterolysis?

Lysis of peritoneal adhesions


What is LOA?

Lysis Of Adhesions


What is an appendectomy?

Removal of the appendix


What is a lap appy?

Laparoscopic removal of the appendix


What is a cholecystectomy?

Removal of the gallbladder


What is a lap chole?

Laparoscopic removal of the gallbladder


What is a Nissen?

Nissen fundoplication:
360 wrap of the stomach by the fundus of the stomach around the distal esophagus to prevent reflux


What is a lap Nissen?

Nissen fundoplication with laparoscopy


What is a simple mastectomy?

Removal of the breast and nipple without removal of nodes


What is a choledochojejunostomy?

Anastomosis of the common bile duct to the jejunum (end-to-side)


What is a Graham patch?

Placement of omentum with stitches over a gastric or duodenal perforation


What is a Heineke-Mikulicz pyloroplasty?

Longitudinal incision through all layers of the pylorus, sewing closed in a transverse direction to make the pylorus nonfunctional (used after truncal vagotomy)


What is a Pringle maneuver?

Temporary occlusion of the porta hepatis (for temporary control of liver blood flow when liver parenchyma is actively bleeding)


What is a modified radical mastectomy?

Removal of the breast, nipple, and axillary lymph nodes (no muscle removed)


What is a lumpectomy and radiation?

Removal of breast mass and axillary lymph nodes.

The wound is then packed open.


What is exploratory laparotomy?

What is a TURP?

TransUrethral Resection of the Prostate:
Removal of the obstructing prostatic tissue via scope in the urethral lumen


What is a fem pop bypass?

FEMoral artery to POPliteal artery bypass using synthetic graft or saphenous vein.
Used to bypass blockage in the femoral artery.


What is an ax fem?

Via saphenous vein graft or IMA bypass grafts to coronary arteries from aorta (cardiac revascularization)


What is Hartmann's pouch?

Oversewing of a rectal stump (or distal colonic stump) after resection of a colonic segment.
