Skin Incision for Port Placement in Laparoscopic Surgery—an Often Forgotten Critical Step!

Skin Incision for Port Placement in Laparoscopic Surgery—an Often Forgotten Critical Step! Port placement is the first and one of the most important step in laparoscopic surgeries. However, these incisions for port placement are often placed casually leading to larger or smaller incisions than those required. Larger incisions may lead to problems like oozing from skin incisions, egress of gas used to create pneuomoperitoneum, while smaller incisions lead to difficulty in port introduction and incision site skin necrosis. We describe a simple and novel technique of giving proper sized skin incision to avoid such problems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Indian Journal of Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

Port placement is the first and one of the most important step in laparoscopic surgeries. However, these incisions for port placement are often placed casually leading to larger or smaller incisions than those required. Larger incisions may lead to problems like oozing from skin incisions, egress of gas used to create pneuomoperitoneum, while smaller incisions lead to difficulty in port introduction and incision site skin necrosis. We describe a simple and novel technique of giving proper sized skin incision to avoid such problems.
