Abstract

Open trocar placement is used by many surgeons during laparoscopy to avoid some of the potential complications of Veress needle and sharp trocar insertion. We describe a case of serosal bowel injury with a holding stitch placed to obtain an airtight peritoneal cavity during open laparoscopic trocar placement in a two-year-old patient. The importance of inspection of the initial umbilical puncture site is emphasized and a rapid, simple technique for repair of minor bowel injuries is described.
