1 Fascia of the Abdomen Chris van Zyl KHC

2 Outline Peritoneum Quick word on Embryology Anatomy
Fascia of the anterior abdominal wall Fascia around kidneys

3 Peritoneam Serous membrane Divided into parietal and visceral
Parietal peritoneum lines anterior, lateral and posterior walls peritoneal cavity Visceral peritoneum lines all the organs that are intraperitoneal.

4 Embryology Mesentries divide coelomic cavity into R + L halves
Upper abdomen Stomach + gut suspended in the middle Liver in the ventral mesentery Spleen in dorsal mesentery

5 Embryology Organs migrate in anticlockwise fashion
Liver lies on the right Spleen on the left Drags mesenteries into position they occupy in muturity

6 Peritoneal cavity Two main regions
Greater sac (general abdominal cavity) Lesser sac (or omental bursa) Communicate via foramen of Vinslow (epiploic foramen)

7 Course Covers the inferior aspect of diaphragm and is reflected onto the liver and the abdominal part of the esophagus After the liver is enclosed, it extends from the porta hepatis as a double layer (lesser omentum) to the lesser curvature of the stomach

8 Course It encloses the stomach, reaches the greater curvature of stomach and extends as a double layer (greater omentum) down into the abdominal cavity,loops back up to the transverse colon. From there the transverse mesocolon is formed, which joins the post abdominal wall on the anterior aspect of the pancreas

9 Course Double layer devides into single layers
one which runs superiorly over the post abdominal wall and reflected onto the bare area of liver The other runs inferiorly over the post abdominal wall to cover the pelvic organs and join the peritoneum of the anterior abdominal wall. The post peritoneal layer of the post abdo wall is interrupted as it’s reflected from the duodenojejenal to ileocaecal junction to form the mesentery of the jejenum and ileum

10 Blood supply of the peritoneum
To the parietal peritoneum Lumbar vessels Branches of the inferior and superior epigastric arteries Musculophrenic arteries Deep circumflex arteries To the visceral peritoneum From the arteries supplying the appropriate viscera

11 Innervation of the peritoneum
To the parietal peritoneum From the nerves supplying the diaphragm and adjacent body wall - e.g. phrenic (C3-C5) and intercostal and subcostal nerves (T7-L1) To the visceral peritoneum Sympathetic nerves innervating the appropriate viscera.

12 Peritoneam Anatomy devided into: Peritoneal spaces
Peritoneal reflections including ligaments Mesentry Omenta

13 Peritoneal Spaces: Peritoneal cavity devided by transverse colon and mesocolon into: Supramesocolic compartment Right and Left supramesocolic spaces Inframesocolic compartment Devided by root of smallbowel mesentery Right and Left inframesocolic spaces

14 Right supramesocolic space
Devided into: Right subphrenic space Diaphragmatic surface of R liver from falciform ligament medially to coronary ligament postero-infer Right subhepatic space Subdevided into ant + post spaces (Morrison’s pouch) Communicates with R paracolic gutter + R infracolic space Lesser sac

15 Left supramesocolic space
Devided into: Ant left perihepatic space Post left perihepatic space (gastrohepatic recess) Anterior left subphrenic spaces Posterior left suphrenic spaces

16 Imaging RSP: R subphric S LSP: L subphrenic S LPC: L paracolic S
LSs: Sup recess LS Lsi: Inf recess LS

17 Lesser Sac Posterior Wall Anterior Wall Lateral Wall
Peritoneum over pancreas, left adrenal, upper pole of left kidney Anterior Wall Peritoneum over post. stomach, lesser omentum Lateral Wall Spleen, gastrosplenic, splenorenal ligaments Communicates via epiploic foramen (of Winslow)

18 Lesser sac Devided by gastropancreatic fold (left gastric artery)
Superior recess Encloses caudate lobe Inferior recess Lies between stomach and pancreas Left Gastric artery: Arrow GHL: Gastro hepatic lig SHS: Subhepatic S LSs: Sup recess LS Lsi: Inf recess LS

19 Foramen of Winslow Post: IVC
Ant: free edge of lesser omentum containing portal vein, hepatic artery, CBD Sup: Caudate lobe Inf: 1st part of duodenum

20 Right inframesocolic compartment
Bounded by: Transverse mesocolon sup and to the R Root of small bowel mesentery

21 Left inframesocolic space
Larger than right In free communication with pelvis right to midline Sigmoid colon and mesentery forms partial barier left of midline

22 Paracolic gutters Peritoneal recesses lat to ascending + descending colon Right continuous with right subhepatic/phrenic spaces Left seperated by phrenicocolic ligament Both communicates with pelvis

23 Imaging: Inframesocolic compart.

24 Pelvic peritoneal spaces/pouches
The rectouterine pouch/ Pouch of Douglas (in females) separating rectum from bladder The rectovesical pouch (in males) separating the rectum from the bladder The vesicouterine pouch (in females) separating bladder from uterus

25 Peritoneal reflections
8 Legaments 4 Mesentries 2 Omenta

26 Peritoneal ligaments Right coronary ligament Left coronary ligament
Reflection of peritoneum from diaphragm to post surface of R liver lobe Bare area between two layers of this ligament Left coronary ligament Continuation of this peritoneal reflection to the left

27 Peritoneal ligaments Gastrosplenic ligament Falciform ligament
Continuous with greater omentum From greater curve of stomach to spleen. Contains gastroepiploic vessels + short gastric vessels Falciform ligament From anterosup surface of liver to diaphragm + ant abdominal wall Carries lig Teres (obliterated umbilical vein) in free edge Continues with fissure for lig venosum

28 Peritoneal ligaments Phrenicocolic ligament Splenorenal ligament
From splenic flexure to diaphragm Continuous with transverse mesocolon + splenorenal lig Splenorenal ligament From pancreatic tail to splenic hilus Transmits splenic vessels

29 Peritoneal ligaments Hepatoduodenal ligaments Duodenocolic ligament
From flexure between 1st + 2nd part of duodenum to porta hepatis Transports portal triad Duodenocolic ligament From R colic flexure to descending duodenum Continuous with transverse mesocolon

32 Broad ligament of the uterus
Wide fold of peritoneum that connects the sides of the uterus to the walls and floor of the pelvis

33 Broad ligament of the uterus
Subcomponents: Mesometrium- the mesentery of the uterus; the largest portion of the broad ligament Mesosalpinx- the part that surrounds the Fallopian tube Mesovarium- the part that connects the anterior surface of the ovary to the remainder of the broad ligament.

34 Mesentries Small bowel mesentry Broad fan shaped fold
Conects jejunum + ileum to post abdominal wall Extends from duodenojejunal flexure (Left of L2) to upper part of R SI joint Root continuous with L + R ant pararenal spaces Contains jejunal, ileal branches of SMA and accompanying veins, nerves, lymphatics

37 Omenta Greater and Lesser

38 Greater Omentum Continuous with:
Hangs from the greater curve of the stomach and loops down in front of the intestines before curving back upwards to attach to the transverse colon, thus 4 layers of peritoneum  Continuous with: Gastrocolic ligament: largest component Gastrosplenic ligament: to splenic hilus Gastrophrenic ligament

39 Lesser Omentum Attached to the lesser curvature of the stomach, prox duodenum and the liver Subdivided into:  Gastrohepatic ligament connects the left lobe of the liver to the lesser curvature of the stomach Hepatoduodenal ligament free edge of the omentum, extends to porta hepatis and ligamentum venosum Contains gastric artery, coronary vein, left gastric nodal chain

Connected to aponeurosis of external oblique laterally + linea alba/ symphisis pubis medially Passes over inguinal ligamnet inferolaterally to fuse with fascia of the thigh Forms superfiscial perineal fascia inferomedially (Fascia of Colles)

43 Transversalis fascia Lies between transverse abdominis and extraperitoneal fat Continuous with inferior diaphragmatic fascia Fuses with thoracolumbar fascia posteriorly Spermatic cord/Round ligament passes through transversalis fascia at deep inguinal ring becomes internal spermatic fascia
