Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To record and compare the frequency of organ penetration after insertion of a Veress needle (VN) in 6 different intercostal spaces (ICS) for creation of pneumoperitoneum in canine cadavers. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive study. ANIMALS: Canine cadavers (n = 15). METHODS: In 15 cadavers positioned in dorsal recumbency, VN insertion in the right and left 8th-10th ICS was performed, the abdomen insufflated, and VN position and any visceral penetration recorded. The frequency of viscus penetration was assessed in all insertion sites. RESULTS: In cadavers, the right 9th ICS was associated with the lowest number of organ penetrations after VN insertion. CONCLUSION: In cadavers, the position associated with the lowest frequency of penetrating any intraabdominal structure was the 9th ICSon the right side.
