  26. 77.

    Applied anatomy: Cholecystitis: pain in right hypochondrium and radiate to:

    ➢The tip of right shoulder because it receives sensory fibers from right phrenic (C3,4,5) while the right shoulder receives sensory fibers from lateral supraclavicular nerve (C3,4). ➢At the back below scapula because pain is transmitted through greater splanchnic nerve (T5 – 9). Stone in Hartman’s pouch: Can obstruct neck of the gall bladder or common hepatic duct leading to obstructive jaundice. Rare gall bladder gangrene: because it has arterial supply.

    Portal Circulation It is the venous drainage of stomach, spleen,

    pancreas and intestine. Portal vein Systemic veins Portal vein and tributaries. IVC & SVC and tributaries No valves May contain valves. Starts by tributaries and ends by divisions Starts by tributaries and ends by larger vein. Has 2 sets of capillaries One set of capillaries Blood contains absorbed food. Blood contains waste products. Blood is incompletely deoxygenated blood. Blood is completely deoxygenated blood. Blood pressure is higher. Blood pressure is lower.

    T12 L3 Site -It lies on the posterior abdominal wall

    from T12 to L3. -Left kidney reaches 11th rib while right kidney reaches 11th intercostal space.

    Transpyloric plane (L1) Midline 2 inches 2 inches -Hilum is

    2 inches away from midline at transpyloric plane -Upper end is 2 inches above hilum and 1 inch from midline. -Lower end is 2 inches below hilum and 3 inches from midline. -Long axis is directed downwards and laterally. Size: 4 X 2 X1 inches
  38. 102.

    Hilum External features: - Its shape is bean shape. -

    It has: -Two ends (upper & lower). -Two surfaces (anterior & posterior). -Two borders (lateral & medial). - Hilum -is concave and present in the middle of the medial border. -It contains renal vein, renal artery and pelvis of ureter ( from anterior to posterior) -Sinus is the space that lies inner to the hilum and deficient of renal tissue but contains segmental branches of renal artery and pelvis of ureter. -Transpyloric (L1) plane passes through upper part of right hilum and lower part of left hilum. - It is lined with fibrous capsule and perinephric fat.

    Stability of Kidney: 1- Its position in paravertebral gutter. 2-

    Coverings of the kidney. 3- Intra-abdominal pressure. 4- Apposition of surrounding organs. Applied Anatomy ➢ Renal pain is a result of stretch of renal capsule or spasm of smooth muscle of renal pelvis of the ureter. ➢ Renal pain is transmitted along sympathetic supply (T10 – T12), so pain is felt in the flanks and down to lower abdominal wall.

    Applied Anatomy - Stone ureter is usually impacted at site

    of constrictions. - Ureteric pain from loin to groin (due to sympathetic supply comes from T11 – L2 Nerves). - Identification of stone ureter in X-ray.
