Description

Review of ventral midline celiotomy for treatment of colic. Includes facilities, personnel, and materials requirements, preparation of the surgical site, approaches to the abdomen, general principles of abdominal surgery, abdominal exploration, closure, assessment of gastrointestinal viability and prevention of adhesions.

Objectives

Know the required materials for ventral midline celiotomy.
Specialized materials are required for performing ventral midline celiotomy to allow successful isolation of GI content from the peritoneal cavity and safe evacuation of content. Surgical stapling equipment can play a helpful role during anastomotic procedures.
Describe the steps for performing ventral midline celiotomy and abdominal exploration.
Tips and techniques for abdominal exploration including methods for incision, abdominal fluid assessment, decompression, exploration techniques, and abdominal wall closure are described in detail.
Know how to assess for intestinal viability.
The described methods for assessment of intestinal viability are explained including grading of lesions.
Know the available methods for prevention of adhesions during and after ventral midline celiotomy.
Both intra-operative and post-operative treatments shown to decrease the incidence of adhesions in the post-operative colic are discussed.
