PMID:  15772487     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An infant underwent laparoscopy using a 2-mm trocar for the video optic to achieve a gastrostomy. Two days postoperatively, a trocar-site herniation of the omentum was noted and measured. This suggests that the operating surgeon should consider a secure closure of the wound even after a 2-mm trocar is used in infants.
