There is persistent controversy concerning the management of patients with abdominal trauma. The major point is to determine whether or not the abdominal trauma is penetrating.

The clue of the mobilization of the splenic flexure is a complete division of the root of the transverse mesocolon along the pancreas. After the section of the terminal part of the inferior mesenteric vein, the retrogastric cavity is opened and the root of the mesocolon is cut from the right to the left onto the parieto-colic attachment. Thereafter the(More)
