Omental evisceration through small laparoscopy port sites.

Author information

  • 1Section of Urology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.


Two children developed omental evisceration through small periumbilical port sites after peritoneal endoscopy for nonpalpable testes. Factors that predispose to this complication include decompression of the pneumoperitoneum by suction. These factors and steps to avoid it such as closure of all endoscopic fascial defects under direct vision are described.
