fig0010: Peritoneal defect identified in the vesico-uterine space.

Mentions: On entry into the peritoneal cavity, free serous fluid was appreciated in the pelvis. The small bowel was then run from the terminal ileum in reverse fashion. Approximately 15–20 centimeters from the terminal ileum, a loop of small bowel was found to be incarcerated in a peritoneal defect in the pelvis. The bowel was gently reduced and found to be viable. The location of this defect was clearly in the vesico-uterine space, just to the right of the midline (Fig. 2). There was no evidence of direct or indirect inguinal hernia.
