    that contains variable amount of fat. Below umbilicus: composed of two layers: 1-Superficial fatty (Camper’s fascia): That is continuous below with corresponding layer in the thigh. It replaced by Dartos muscle in the scrotum. 2-Deep membranous (Scarpa’s fascia): which ➢Forms fundiform ligament of penis. ➢Separates between superficial and deep dorsal veins of penis. ➢ Formes Coll’s fascia in the scrotum. ➢Continuous with corresponding layer in the thigh, fused with fascia lata one inch below inguinal ligament.

  9. Applied Anatomy of superficial fascia •Rupture of bulbar urethra leads

    to escape of urine in superficial perineal pouch. •Urine will be accumulated deep to Scarpa’s fascia In the lower part of anterior abdominal wall. •Urine will be prevented to reach front of thigh due to fusion between Scarpa’s fascia with fascia lata.

  114. Etiology (causes): 1- Congenital hernia sac: persistence of patent processus

    vaginalis. 2- Weakness of the abdominal wall due to: obesity, pregnancy, weak scar or injury of a muscular nerve. 3- Increased intra-abdominal pressure: Due to chronic straining or abdominal swelling.

    hernia passes. e.g. deep inguinal ring, femoral ring. 2- Hernial sac: formed of parietal peritoneum (neck, body and fundus). 3- Contents: any part of mobile abdominal contents e.g. intestine and omentum. 4- Coverings: from layers of abdominal wall.

  120. Umbilical Hernia ➢Congenital umbilical hernia: Failure of return of physiological

    hernia. ➢Infantile hernia: Occurs at the umbilicus in first year of life, due to weak scar tissue and continuous straining. ➢Adult para-umbilical: Defect of linea alba above umbilicus, usually in fatty multiparous females.

  156. Peritoneum (Page 61)

  157. PERITONEUM • The largest serous sac that lines abdominal wall

    and covers abdominal viscera. It has the following parts: 1- Visceral layer: covers abdominal viscera, supplied by autonomic nerves and sensitive to stretch only. 2- Parietal layer: lines abdominal wall, supplied by somatic nerves and it is very sensitive that when irritated leads to pain, tenderness and rigidity. 3- Peritoneal fold: when peritoneum is in contact other peritoneal layer to form either ligament, omentum or mesentery. 4- Peritoneal cavity: It separates visceral from parietal. It is potential space.
  158. Sex differences: Peritoneal sac is a closed in male but

    in females it is opened by uterine tubes. Functions of peritoneum: 1- provides smooth surfaces for viscera to avoid friction. 2- Protects against infection as peritoneal fluid contains antibodies. 3- Allows rapid healing of abdominal wounds. 4- Can localize the spread of infection (policeman of the abdomen). 5- Storage of fat.
  159. Parts of Peritoneal sac •It is divided into: 1- Greater

    sac: It is the part of peritoneal sac that fills most of abdominal cavity. 2- Lesser sac: It is the part of the peritoneal sac that is present behind stomach.
  160. Greater Sac

  161. Greater Sac It is divided by transverse colon & its

    mesentery into: Supracolic compartment. That is divided into right and left parts by falciform ligament. Infracolic compartment. That is divided into upper right and lower left sides by mesentery of small intestine.

  218. Comparison between cardiac & pyloric ends

  219. Cardiac orifice -Between esophagus and stomach. -1 inch to the

    left at level of 7th costal cartilage (T11) 40 cm from incisors. -Controlled by physiological sphincter: -Acute angle. -Pinch-like action of right crus of diaphragm. -Mucosal rosette. -Effect of high intra-abdominal pressure on esophagus. -Circular muscle fibers around cardiac orifice.
  220. Pyloric orifice -At the junction between stomach and duodenum. -It

    is present at the transpyloric plane, ½ an inch to the right from median plane. -It is controlled by anatomical sphincter (pyloric sphincter) which is formed of thickened circular muscle fibers. -It is marked on the surface by a groove and prepyloric vein of Mayo.

  239. Portal vein Left gastric vein Right gastric vein Short gastric

    vein Left gastro- epiploic vein Right gastro- epiploic vein Superior mesenteric vein Splenic vein
  240. Applied Anatomy: -Porto-systemic anastomosis is present at the lower end

    of esophagus. -It is drained by left gastric vein to portal and esophageal veins to azygos vein. -In case of portal hypertension, this anastomosis will be opened to form esophageal and gastric varices.
  241. Lymph Drainage

  243. None
  244. Applied anatomy: ➢Spread of malignant cells may occurs to thoracic

    duct then retrograde spread to left supra-clavicular nodes (Virchow’s glands). ➢Retrograde spread of malignant cells may reach hepatic nodes. ➢Retrograde spread may reach skin of umbilicus from hepatic nodes through ligamentum teres inside falciform ligament to form a malignant nodule in the umbilicus known as Sister Joseph nodule.

  248. None
  249. Lesser Omentum (Gastro-hepatic ligament) It is a double layer of

    peritoneum. Relations: Superficial: left lobe of the liver. Deep: lesser sac. Attachments: Gastric: lesser curvature and 1st inch of duodenum. Hepatic: Hilum of the liver and fissure of ligamentum venosum. Contents: In right free margin: portal vein, hepatic artery and common bile duct. Along lesser curvature: Left gastric vs., right gastric vs. and lymph nodes. Extraperitoneal fat, lymph vessels and autonomic nerves
  250. Greater Omentum (Gastro-colic Ligament) It is a double layer of

    peritoneum. Relations: Superficial: anterior abdominal wall. Deep: small intestine and parts of large intestine. Attachments: Gastric: Lower 2/3 of the greater curvature and 1st inch of duodenum. Colic: to transverse colon or pancreatic to anterior border of body of pancreas. Contents: -In right free margin: portal vein, hepatic artery and common bile duct. -Along greater curvature: Left gastroepiploic vs., right gastroepipoic vs. and lymph nodes. -Extraperitoneal fat, lymph vessels and autonomic nerves
  251. Gastro-phrenic ligament: Double layer of peritoneum that extends from fundus

    to diaphragm. Gastro-splenic ligament: Double layer of peritoneum that extends from upper part of greater curvature to hilum of spleen. Contents: Short gastric vessels, left gastro-epiploic vessels, extraperitoneal fat, lymphatics and autonomic nerves.
