Exploration of liver, gall bladder, pancreas, duodenum and spleen
General view of organs in situ, stomach elevated
The stomach has been elevated and pulled toward the right. The peritoneum has been removed from the omental bursa except in the area of the vestibule (4) to expose the left gastric artery (2) and splenic vessels (14,16) and structures associated with them. Peritoneum and connective tissue have been stripped from the pancreas.
