First the inferior vena cava and aorta, then the pancreatic head was revealed by opening the gastrocolic
and gastrosplenic ligaments are separated from the greater curvature using Sonicision (Covidien, Mansfield, MA).
Access to the omental bursa was established by dissection of the gastrocolic
(2) Exploration and dissection of the pancreas: laparoscopic coagulation shears were used to dissect the gastrocolic
and gastrosplenic ligaments further exposing the abdominal surface of the pancreas, and care was taken to preserve the left gastroepiploic vessels and short gastric vessels.
After opening the gastrocolic
ligament by dividing the short gastric vessels, the hilar vessels and short gastric vessels were individually identified and divided between Hemo-lok clips (Weg, UK).
In both techniques, the pancreas is accessed via the lesser sac after dividing the gastrocolic
We used ribs made by “prolene” mesh and bone cement to repair the bony defect, and further covered the defect with the latissimus dorsi muscle and gastrocolic
While performing laparoscopic exploration, gastrocolic
ligament was released and a 3-cm-diameter mass was seen behind gastric fundus wall.
The transverse colon (gastrocolic
ligament) is partially dissected from the stomach and duodenum and reflected inferiorly.
A case of gastrocolic
fistula secondary to adenocarcinoma of the colon.
Food enters the stomach when a person eats and stimulates the gastrocolic
reflex, which propels a mass movement of feces toward the sigmoid colon.
ligament (GcL) was dissected and the stomach (St) was separated cranially to show the celiac compartment.
