Abdominall wall

C Ridereau-Zins, F Pilleul, Y Gandon, V Laurent
Although optical colonoscopy is still the gold standard for diseases of the colon, radiologic examination of the colon is now being performed by CT scan. Evaluation of the colon is enhanced by distension, which "de-folds" the intestinal wall, thus facilitating its examination for abnormalities of the mucosa, the wall as a whole, and the diameter of the bowel lumen. Water or gas (CO(2)) may be used for the distension, depending on the suspected lesions. The water enema method of colonography combines filling the bowel lumen with water and intravenous injection of a contrast medium...

Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is currently the subject of intense debate, even though it provides a series of advantages over open surgery and is feasible and safe.

Despite the excellent results of laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias, there are numerous controversies associated with this procedure. These controversies concern the indications and contraindications of the procedure, and technical aspects such as how to create the pneumoperitoneum, perform adhesiolysis, manage the hernia sac, and insert and fix the mesh to the anterior abdominal wall...

Echolocation was accomplished by means of "Alok-650" echochamber (Japan) and 3.5 and 5 megahertz transducers. Twenty individuals of the control group and 40 patients who underwent operations on the extrahepatic bile ducts and the gallbladder through S. P. Fedorov's approach were examined. Morphometry was conducted of the linea alba, the broad abdominal muscles, and the rectus abdominis muscles on 5 levels in relaxation and tension of the prelum abdominale muscles. The size of the rectus abdominis muscles in the control group was found to be the same on both sides...

The ultrasound investigation has been performed by means of the echodevices "Aloka-280" and "Aloka-650" (Japan), transducers of 3.5 and 5 MHz. Eighty-two persons of both sex at the age 16-72 years have been examined. The white line, m. rectus abdominis and m. vastus abdominis have been measured at three levels, as well as lateral amuscular spaces. The width of the abdominal white line is individually very variable; the area of the lateral amuscular spaces is greater to the right than to the left. In 20 persons examined they are absent...
