What is the foundation set for many surgical procedures?
The foundation set for many surgical procedures is the major laparotomy. The intent of the major laparotomy set is to provide instrumentation for almost any procedure that can be performed in the abdominal cavity.
What type of hernia results in gangrenous bowel that may be overlooked?
Results. The classic features of Richter’s hernia were confirmed in all case studies of patients: only part of the circumference of the bowel is entrapped and strangulated in the hernial orifice. The involved segment may rapidly pass into gangrene, yet signs of intestinal obstruction are often absent.
What are the two types of hernias?
The most common types of hernia are inguinal (inner groin), incisional (resulting from an incision), femoral (outer groin), umbilical (belly button), and hiatal (upper stomach). In an inguinal hernia, the intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin.
What muscles protect the abdominal viscera?
What muscles protect the abdominal viscera? Rectus abdominis, External oblique, internal oblique,transversus abdominis, quadratus lumborum and strong abdominal muscles give good protection when they are tensed, but when relaxed the underlying organs may be easily injured.

How serious is an abdominal hernia?
Complications occur when a piece of intestine or omentum becomes trapped (incarcerated) in the hernia sac. A piece of bowel may enter the hernia and become stuck. If the bowel swells, it can cause a surgical emergency as it loses its blood supply and becomes strangulated.
What are the most common surgical procedures?
Some of the most common surgical operations done in the United States include the following:
- Breast biopsy.
- Carotid endarterectomy.

What is Richter’s hernia?
Richter hernia (partial enterocele) is the protrusion and/or strangulation of only part of the circumference of the intestine’s antimesenteric border through a rigid small defect of the abdominal wall.
What is a pantaloon hernia?
