  • This was originally an anatomy review for first year medical students. I'm glad to see so many of you guys found it helpful. Interestingly, I'm not the person who posted it on the web. In fact, I had no idea someone did this! I don't mind though and I'm not sure I still have a copy myself. Good luck to everyone!

  • Abdomen, Pelvis and Perineum Dmitry Goldin [email_address]
  • Know all Terminology, use to navigate in the body
    • Inferior=caudal, superior=cranial, medial, lateral, dorsal=posterior, ventral=anterior
    • Deep vs. Superficial (think ‘onion’ layers of the body)
    • Proximal vs. Distal= further away from attachment point
    • Median plane= mid -sagittal plane ( skull has a sagittal sutur in the middle but sagittal planes move medial & lateral )
    • Transverse=axial= horizontal plane ( move sup./inf.)
    • Frontal=coronal plane (“crown”, can move ant.&post .)
    • Hand has dorsal(dorsum) and Palmar surfaces
    • Foot has dorsal (dorsum) and Plantar (sole) surfaces
    • Extension vs. Flexion ( exception w/ dorsiflexion vs. plantarflexion )
    • Abduction vs. Adduction
    • Opposition, reposition, supination, pronation, retrusion, protrusion, ELEVATION/DEPRESSION, eversion, inversion
  • Abdominal Internal Coverings
    • Visceral and Parietal Peritoneum – define peritoneal cavity
    • Ventral mesogastrium
    • Dorsal mesogastrium
    • Dorsal Common Mesentery
    Transversalis Fascia Extraperitoneal Parietal Peritoneum Intraperitoneal Visceral Peritoneum Gut tube
  • Ventral mesogastrium Dorsal mesogastrium Dorsal Common Mesentery In post-partum age, the ligaments that are the remnants of these membranes still retain their general attachment points (use for IDing in lab). NOTE – The intestines take a 270deg turn counterclockwise and the stomach takes a 90deg turn clockwise
  • Ventral Mesogastrium
    • Lesser omentum (double serosal layer)
        • Peritoneal reflection extends from porta hepatis to duodenum, and all to lesser curvature of stomach
      • Hepatogastric lig.
      • Hepatoduodenal lig.
        • Portal triad is within it in the free margin laterally
    • Ligaments of the liver
      • Falciform lig. – includes:
        • Ligamentum teres hepatis = round lig. of the liver
          • Inferior aspect of falciform lig.
          • Is the obliterated umbilical vein
      • Coronary lig.
        • Makes the right and left triangular lig.s
  • Dorsal Mesogastrium
      • Gastrosplenic lig. (gastrolienal)
      • Gastrophrenic lig.
      • Gastrocolic lig. (to transverse colon)
      • Spleno(lieno-)renal lig.
        • Contains tail of pancreas and splenic A .--> short gastric AA . and left gastroepiploic A . (splenic br.s inside lig.)
      • Phrenicocolic lig.
      • Greater omentum AKA Omental apron (“abdominal policemen”)
        • Hangs down from the greater curvature of the stomach. It adheres to areas of inflammation, preventing diffuse peritonitis. Also transmits R&L gastroepiploic vessels along greater curvature of the stomach.
  • Dorsal Common Mesentery
    • These transmit vasculature from retroperitoneal Aorta to peritonealized structures of the Mid- and Hindgut.
    • Mesentery (proper)
    • Mesoappendix
    • Transverse mesocolon
    • Sigmoid mesocolon
  • Intraperitoneal vs. Retroperitoneal
    • Stomach
    • Part 1 of duodenum
    • Jejunum, Ileum
    • Cecum, Appendix
    • Transverse colon
    • Sigmoid colon
    • Liver, Gallbladder
    • Tail of pancreas
    • Spleen
    • Parts 2,3,4 duodenum
    • Ascending, Descending colon
    • Rectum
    • Head, neck, body of pancreas
    • Kidneys, ureters
    • Suprarenal gland
    • Abdominal Aorta
    • Inferior vena cava
    *** Rule of Thumb : If it has a mesentery or mesogastrium component => Intraperitoneal
  • Primary vs. secondary Retroperitoneal?
    • Primary was always there
    • Secondary became retroperitoneal in development
    • Secondary Retroperitoneal:
      • Pancreas (not tail), most of duodenum (not part 1), ascending & descending colon
  • Omental Bursa (lesser peritoneal sac)
    • Result from stomach taking 90 degree clockwise turn
    • Anterior: liver, stomach, & lesser omentum
    • Posterior: diaphragm
    • Right side: liver
    • Left side: gastrosplenic and splenorenal ligs.
    • Communicates with greater peritoneal sac through the omental foramen (of Winslow) [Omental=Epiploic]
      • Posterior= IVC covered by parietal peritoneum; Anterior= Portal Triad in hepatoduodenal lig .; Inferior= 1st part duodenum ; Superior= caudate lobe in visceral peritoneum
  • Portal Triad - inside free margin of hepatoduodenal lig .
    • Portal V.
    • Proper hepatic A.
    • Common bile duct
      • Descends posterior to 1 st part of duodenum
    posterior anterior Lateral/right Medial/left V A D
  • Greater Peritoneal Sac
    • This is the remainder of peritoneal cavity
    • Greater omentum found here
    • Paracolic gutters are channels along ascending and descending colon
    • CLINICAL: Peritonitis or Ascites cause excess peritoneal fluid that flows downward through paracolic gutters to rectovesical pouch (males) or rectouterine pouch (females) when patient is sitting or standing. When patient is in supine position the fluid runs upwards through gutters to subphrenic and hepatorenal recesses .
  • Quick embryo: Fore-, Mid-, and Hind- Gut
    • These are the divisions of the primitive gut tube, which divide the gut nicely anatomically and functionally
    • Epithelial lining and glands of mucosa= endoderm
    • Lamina propria, muscularis mucosae, submucosa, muscularis externa = mesoderm
    • Foregut = esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, duodenum (up to major papilla in the 2 nd part)
    • Midgut = lower duodenum, jejunum, ileum, cecum, appendix, ascending colon, proximal 2/3 of transverse colon
    • Hindgut = distal 1/3 transverse colon, descending and sigmoid colon, rectum, and upper anal canal (above pectinate line )
  • Foregut
    • VAGUS N. provides preganglionic parasympathetic ( posterior vagal trunk passes thru celiac ganglion but does not synapse, the anterior vagal trunk courses on the stomach’s surface)
    • Greater Thoracic Splanchnic Ns . (T5-T9) provides preganglionic sympathetic, which synapse in celiac ganglion
      • Autonomics travel with vasculature from celiac trunk to organs
    • Celiac ganglion found on the crura of diaphragm in the vicinity of celiac trunk, (bulbous and has nerves!)

  • Foregut embryo clinicals
    • Esophageal atresia associated with polyhydramnios and tracheoesophageal fistula.
      • Occurs when esophagus ends in blind tube from malformation of tracheoesophageal septum
    • Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis associated with projectile nonbilious vomiting and small palpable mass at right costal margin
      • Muscularis externa hypertrophies narrowing pyloric lumen
    • Extrahepatic biliary atresia associated with jaundice after birth, pale stool, and dark urine
      • When incomplete recanalization leads to occlusion of biliary ducts
    • Annular pancreas cause obstruction of duodenum when ventral and dorsal pancreatic buds form ring around duodenum
    • Macrosomia (increased birth weight) occurs when fetal islets are exposed to high glucose levels (uncontrolled diabetic) which stimulates insulin secretion causing increased fat and glycogen deposition
  • Midgut
    • Blood supply: SMA at lower LV1
      • SMA starts posterior to neck of pancreas and descends across anterior uncinate process and crosses anterior to 3 rd part of duodenum
    • VAGUS N. provides preganglionic parasympathetic
    • Postganglionic sympathetics from sup. mesenteric ganglion

    • Intestinal brs.
    • Ileocolic A. -> appendicular a.
    • Marginal A.
    • CLINICALS:
      • SMA syndrome – SMA is obstructed in some way
      • Nutcracker syndrome - SMA compresses left renal v. (crosses ant. to aorta and inf. to SMA) leading to varicocele in left testis
  • Midgut embryo clinicals
    • Duodenal atresia is associated with polyhydroamnios, bile-containing vomit, and distended stomach
      • Results from failure of recanalization
      • Same process for intestinal atresia or stenosis but Sx are not
    • Omphalocele : a light gray shiny sac protruding form the base of the umbilical cord
      • Results from the midgut loop failing to return to abdominal cavity
    • Ileal (Meckel’s) diverticulum is often asymptomatic but can become inflamed or ulcerated
      • Occurs when a remnant of the vitelline duct persists, forming a blind pouch on the antimesenteric border of the ileum
      • Rule of two’s: 2 in. long, 2 ft. proximal of ileocecal JXN, 2% pop.
    • Vitelline fistula is associated with fecal discharge from umbilicus
      • Occurs when the vitelline duct (connects yolk sac with gut) persists forming a direct connection b/w lumen and outside of body
    • Malrotation of the midgut is associated with volvulus which can compromise blood flow and result in gangrene
      • Result of midgut undergoing only partial rotation

    • Aganglionic megacolon (Hirschsprung’s disease) is associated with the loss of peristalsis, fecal retention, and abdominal distention
      • Results from failure of neural crest cells to form the myenteric plexus in the sigmoid colon and rectum
      • Proximal to this the colon is distended with fecal material and the distal colon is narrow where plexus is missing
    • Anorectal agenesis is when the rectum ends as a blind sac above the puborectalis m. owing to abnormal formation of the urorectal septum
    • Anal agenesis is when the anal canal ends as a blind sac below the puborectalis m.
    • Rectovesical, rectourethral, or rectovaginal fistulas can accompany the above two disorders (fistula = abnormal lumen connections)
  • Referred pain overview Table 4-5. Referred pain pathways (visceral afferents) Left and right flanks and groins, lateral and anterior thighs L1,L2 Lumbar splanchnic nerves Hindgut (organs supplied by inferior mesenteric artery) Flanks (lateral regions) and pubic region T12 Least splanchnic nerve Kidneys and upper ureter Umbilical region T9,T10 (or T10,T11) Lesser splanchnic nerve Midgut (organs supplied by superior mesenteric artery) Lower thorax and epigastric region T5 to T9 (or T10) Greater splanchnic nerve Foregut (organs supplied by celiac trunk) Upper thorax and medial arm T1 to T4 Thoracic splanchnic nerves Heart Referral area Spinal cord level Afferent pathway Organ

      • The perivascular plexus has postganglionic sympathetic fibers
  • Abdominal Venous Drainage
    • Azygous V. drains blood from IVC to SVC
    • Hemiazygous V. drains L renal v. to azygous

  • Lymph
    • Pre-aortic nodes:
    • Celiac nodes receive from inferior & superior mesenteric nodes
      • Drain GI tract
    • Celiac nodes empty into cisterna chyli (trunk that is the beginning of the thoracic duct)
  • Lymph - lateral aortic or lumbar lymph nodes receive lymphatics from the body wall, the kidneys, the suprarenal glands, and the testes or ovaries. - Pre-aortic nodes receive from GI tract (rectum too), as well as the spleen, pancreas, gallbladder, and liver -Finally, the lateral aortic or lumbar nodes form the right and left lumbar trunks , while the pre-aortic nodes form the intestinal trunk . These trunks come together and form a confluence that, at times, appears as a saccular dilation (the cisterna chyli ). This confluence of lymph trunks is posterior to the right side of the abdominal aorta and anterior to the bodies of vertebrae LI and LII . It marks the beginning of the thoracic duct .
  • Abdominal viscera - Esophagus

      • Tail (dorsal pancreatic bud) – toward spleen
    • Clinical
      • Acute pancreatitis – epigastric pain that radiates to back (biliary tract disease or alcoholism)
      • Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (very aggressive)– same pain + blocks common bile duct (obstructive jaundice)
        • Treatment – pancreaticoduodenectomy (Whipple procedure), which removes head of pancreas, duodenum, distal CBD, gallbladder, and distal stomach.

      • Tail of the pancreas
    • Clinicals:
      • Splenic vein thrombosis associated w/ pancreatitis (gastric varices & upper GI bleed)
      • Splenectomy – removal of spleen can damage pancreas or left kidney depending on what lig.s and their respective as. That are damaged. Most commonly, atelectasis occurs (collapse) of the left lower lobe of lung.

    • Superior poles are closer together
    • Left – 11 th + 12 th rib, right at 12 th rib
      • 12 th rib can get removed in kidney surgery
      • Left kidney transplanted more common because of longer renal v.
  • ANTERIOR POSTERIOR Renal pelvis Vein then artery
  • * Clinical * -Abscess internal to renal fascia in one kidney CAN NOT spread to other kidney b/c although renal fascia is continuous across midline, it wraps around central vessels very tightly
  • Kidney clinicals
    • Renal agenesis –when the ureteric bud fails to develop
      • Unilateral type is relatively common and asymptomatic
      • Bilateral (relatively uncommon, incompatible w/ life) causes oligohydramnios during pregnancy, which allows uterine wall to compress the fetus  Potter’s Syndrome

      • Penile (spongy/cavernous) – surrounded by corpus spongiosum, enlarges into fossa navicularis, and ends as external urethral meatus. Openings of bulbourethral glands just below urogenital diaphragm. (vulnerable to catheter penetration)
    • Females
      • Courses through urogenital diaphragm and is surrounded by deep transverse perineal m. and sphincter urethrae m. (latter musc. doesn’t completely surround urethra and is the reason for high incidence of stress incontinence in women)

  • Lymph from pelvis
    • Lymphatics from most pelvic viscera drain mainly into lymph nodes distributed along the internal iliac and external iliac arteries and their associated branches, which drain into nodes associated with the common iliac arteries and then into nodes associated with the lateral surfaces of the abdominal aorta. In turn, these lateral aortic nodes drain into the lumbar trunks , which continue to the origin of the thoracic duct at approximately vertebral level T12.
    • Lymphatics from the testes , ovaries and related parts of the uterus and uterine tubes leave the pelvic cavity superiorly and drain, via vessels that accompany the ovarian/testicular arteries, directly into lateral aortic nodes and, in some cases, into the pre-aortic nodes on the anterior surface of the aorta.
    • In addition to draining pelvic viscera, nodes along the internal iliac artery also receive drainage from the gluteal region of the lower limb and from deep areas of the perineum .
  • Lymph from perineum -Lymphatic vessels from deep parts of the perineum accompany the internal pudendal blood vessels and drain mainly into internal iliac nodes in the pelvis. -Lymphatic channels from superficial tissues of the penis or the clitoris accompany the superficial external pudendal blood vessels and drain mainly into superficial inguinal nodes , as do lymphatic channels from the scrotum or labia majora. -The glans penis, the glans clitoris, labia minora, and the terminal inferior end of the vagina drain into deep inguinal nodes and external iliac nodes .
