  journal={Abdominal Imaging},
The ligament of Treitz suspends the distal duodenum but it has not been identified on abdominal CT scans. Duodenal displacement by an extrinsic mass is not an uncommon finding and is not prevented by the ligament of Treitz. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the size and strength of the ligament of Treitz in autopsy cases and then its visibility on abdominal CT scans. The ligament of Treitz was examined in 18 autopsy cases. The ligament was studied in situ and dissected for macro and… Expand
Morphology of the ligament of Treitz likely depends on its fetal topographical relationship with the left adrenal gland and liver caudate lobe as well as the developing lymphatic tissues: a histological study using human fetuses
The ligament of Treitz seemed to develop from both pleuroperitoneal membrane-derived cells and the retropancreatic fusion fascia, although the morphology was markedly modified by adjacent structures such as the adrenal gland. Expand
Treitz Hernia: Report of a Case and Review of the Literature
The laparoscopic approach is recommended as the first choice of treatment in all cases of internal hernia in the absence of peritoneal irritation or severe bowel obstruction and the clinical signs are difficult to interpret. Expand
Imaging Spectrum of Duodenal Emergencies.
The duodenum, the first portion of the small bowel, is divided into four segments and extends to both retro- and intraperitoneal spaces, and knowledge of which pathologic condition can involve which duodenal segment can help the radiologist establish a differential diagnosis and achieve a more targeted imaging approach.

Direct, Duodenum-Guided Access to the Renal Hilum During Laparoscopic Radical Nephrectomy
The described approach, although technically challenging, represents a feasible, safe and oncologically valid technique to perform LRN in the hands of an experienced laparoscopist. Expand
Technical Details of an Anterior Approach to the Superior Mesenteric Artery During Pancreaticoduodenectomy
The SMA hanging technique (SHT) is a feasible and safe technique with acceptable short-term outcomes and is proposed to standardize en bloc dissection around the SMA in pancreaticoduodenectomy for periampullary malignancies. Expand
The Anatomy of the Small Intestine
The small intestine extends from the distal end of the pyloric canal to the ileocaecal junction and consists of the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum. The jejunum and ileum (collectively often termed theExpand
Usefulness of Laparoscopic Side-to-Side Duodenojejunostomy for Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors Located at the Duodenojejunal Junction
Laparoscopic segmental resection with side-to-side duodenojejunostomy for a GIST at the duodinojejunal junction is a safe, feasible, and effective alternative to open approach, providing benefits of minimally invasive surgery. Expand
Malrotation: Current strategies navigating the radiologic diagnosis of a surgical emergency.
The current methods of abdominal imaging of malrotation along with their pros and cons are described and the importance of close cooperation and communication between radiology and surgery to perform an effective and efficient diagnostic evaluation allowing prompt surgical decision making is emphasized.

Mesopancreas Excision for Pancreatic Cancer
The SMA hanging technique accompanied with a supracolic anterior artery-first approach described in this chapter facilitates central vascular ligation during PD and is proposed as one of the standardized technique for CVL around the SMA. Expand
Anatomic connections of the diaphragm: influence of respiration on the body system
To assess and treat this muscle effectively, it is necessary to be aware of its anatomic, fascial, and neurologic complexity in the control of breathing. Expand


Treitz redux: the ligament of Treitz revisited
The fibromuscular structure plays an important role in the embryologic rotation of the bowel and in facilitating normal progression of contents from the extraperitoneal duodenum to the Mesenteric small bowel and contributes to the effects of the superior mesenteric artery syndrome. Expand
The suspensory muscle of the duodenum and its nerve supply.
The gross anatomy, microscopic structure and nerve supply of the suspensory muscle of the duodenum and Hilfsmuskel have been studied in cadavers of 88 adults, 5 children, 1 infant and 6 neonates. TheExpand
The suspensory muscle of the duodenum.
The suspensory muscle of the duodenum continues the muscular layers of the duodenum, which is consequently surrounded on its mesenteric border only by the muscularis mucosae. Between the muscleExpand
