Laparoscopic complications are most often related to insertion of the Veress cannula or primary trocar. We evaluated the midline abdominal walls of 33 women using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography to determine if the location and angle of placement of the Veress cannula and primary trocar should be chosen according to the patient's weight to minimize the risk of both preperitoneal placement and retroperitoneal vessel injury. The anterior abdominal wall thickness was… CONTINUE READING
