Contouring the epigastrium

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

There are many effective techniques for contouring the epigastrium. The best technique in each particular case is based on careful evaluation of the patient's epigastric skin and subcutaneous fat, abdominal wall support, umbilical position, and consideration of whether there has been a prior surgery in the abdominal area.
