What is Laparotomy surgery ?

Laparotomy surgery is the general medical term for a surgery performed on the abdomen using the traditional full-size incision, rather than a minimally invasive approach. Another name for this common surgery is a coeliotomy.

A laparotomy uses a full sized incision and the minimally invasive version of the procedure is called a laparoscopy and uses multiple small incisions.

The traditional procedure--laparotomy-- is often referred to as an "open" procedure, because the incision makes an opening that allows the surgeon to visualize the organs, blood vessels, and tissues in the abdominal cavity. The laparotomy uses laparoscopic instruments including a camera inserted into very small incisions to allow the surgeon to visualize the internal structures and surgical instruments.

If the surgery is being done as an emergency, the surgeon may perform a laparotomy versus a laparoscopic laparotomy because it provides a larger view and can be somewhat quicker than the minimally invasive approach. When minutes count, the open approach procedure is typically much faster in the initial phase of surgery.

In the majority of cases the open technique is reserved for circumstances where time is of the essence, the patient is unstable or when the procedure requires a large incision, such as a surgery that requires that a large portion of the intestine be visible and accessible.

 during a laparotomy procedure in Iran


During a laparotomy, an individual is under general anesthesia, which means they are asleep. A large incision is made in the abdomen. This incision might be horizontal at the bikini line, and look similar to a C-section (caesarean section) incision, or it may be a vertical incision depending on the nature of your procedure. The incision can be as long as 15 to 20 centimeters in length. Once your surgeon makes the incision, they will be able to view the inside of your abdomen and pelvis. From there, they may remove endometrial-related cysts, called endometriomas, from the ovaries. Ultimately, as much endometriosis is removed as possible during this procedure to hopefully relieve pain and other endometriosis-related symptoms. Bands of tissue (also called adhesions) within the pelvis may be removed in order to help improve fertility.1-3

In some cases, your provider may be removing whole structures from within the pelvis, such as one or both ovaries, the fallopian tubes, or the uterus (called a hysterectomy). However, undergoing a laparotomy for endometriosis often focuses on removing endometriosis only. Your provider or surgeon will talk with you about what they are planning to do in your specific situation.

    Is a laparotomy a major surgery?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      A laparotomy is a surgical procedure through an opening (that is larger than that used for laparoscopy) into the abdomen. A laparotomy is normally used when a laparoscopy cannot be done effectively. … The risk of developing a problem that is related to having a laparotomy is low compared to other major surgery.

    What is the Laparotomy procedure for everyone?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      A laparotomy is performed under general anaesthesia. The surgeon makes a single cut through the skin and muscle of the abdomen, so that the underlying organs can be clearly viewed. The exposed organs are then carefully examined. Once diagnosed, the problem may be fixed on the spot (for example, a perforated bowel may be repaired). In other cases, a second operation may be needed. Once the laparotomy is complete, the muscle of the abdominal wall and the overlying skin are sutured (sewn) closed

    Why and what happened might a laparotomy be needed?

    • Iranian Surgery Adviser says:

      A laparotomy might be needed to look for problems in the abdomen or internal organs, or to treat a particular condition. For example, it might be done to find out why you have abdominal (tummy) pain, if you have an injury to your abdomen, to look at the spread of certain diseases such as endometriosis and cancer. Sometimes it’s done in emergency situations.
      A laparotomy needs a fairly large incision in the abdomen. It is different from a laparoscopy, which is keyhole surgery to look into the abdomen.
      You should discuss with your doctor why a laparotomy might be necessary.
