repair of iiac vein

Lynn Posted Sat 27th of February, 2016 09:21:27 AM

Da-Vinci assisted total laparoscopic hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy, cystoscopy, internal iliac vein repair.

2 mm laceration of the internal iliac vein occurred. The vein was grasped immediately at the site of the laceration with good control. An additional 5 mm assistant port was placed in the right lower quadrant under direct visualization. The laceration was repaired with interrupted sutures of 3'0 silk.
