Landmarks of the anterior abdominal wall
during laparoscopic visualization can also guide placement of secondary ports.
Abscess of the anterior abdominal wall
developing as a result of direct invasion and perforation of the colon by cancer has been rarely described [5-7].
A 7-cm abscess connected with gas extending the length of the penis, into the scrotum and up the anterior abdominal wall

Computed tomography (CT) of the chest and abdomen demonstrated an irregular soft-tissue mass extending from the urinary bladder dome to the umbilicus, with localised infiltration of the anterior abdominal wall
and cutaneous surface (Fig.
There were extensive adhesions between the liver and anterior abdominal wall
. These adhesions were lysed using the electrocautery and Endo Shears.
Many women with extensive endometriosis have had multiple abdominal incision laparotomies that result in adhesions of small bowel stuck to the undersurface of the anterior abdominal wall
. Thus, the first part of many endometriosis operations is to release small-bowel adhesions from the anterior abdominal wall

A computed tomogram (CT) of the chest performed to evaluate for pulmonary embolism and to characterize the abnormal findings on chest radiograph, revealed an inverted liver with suprahepatic gallbladder displaced toward the anterior abdominal wall
