    Default Surgical Incisions


    1. Kocher

    Biliary or hepatic procedures. May be extended across to a left subcostal incision to give useful access to the stomach and pancreas.

    2. Midline

    General access. Usually skirts the umbilicus. Quick and bloodless.

    3. McBurney

    Appendicectomy. Muscle layers are split, rather than cut.

    4. Battle

    Appendicectomy. No longer used because it produces an ugly scar and sometimes incisional hernia. Often seen in older patients therefore.

    5. Lanz

    Appendicectomy. A better cosmetic result than McBurney

    6. Paramedian

    General access. Left or right according to requirements.

    7. Transverse

    General access. Almost always used in infants, and often in adults.

    8. Rutherford Morison

    Access to sigmoid colon and pelvis, particularly if the midline is very scarred from previous surgery.

    9. Pfannenstiel

    Access to bladder, uterus, Fallopian tubes and ovaries. Good cosmetic result but gives no access outside the pelvis
