Where is the aorta? Is it worth palpating the aorta prior to laparoscopy?

Dimitrios Polyzos, Nikolaos Papadopoulos, Lynne Chapman, Panos Papalambrous, Vasiliki Varela, Pietro Gambadauro, Adam Magos Minimally Invasive Therapy Unit & Endoscopy Training Centre, University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Royal Free Hospital, Pond Street, Hampstead, London, NW3 2QG, England. Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand. 2007;86(2):235-9 Background. Injury to major retroperitoneal vessels is the most catastrophic complication of laparoscopy. Knowledge of the site of the aortic bifurcation prior to inserting the umbilical port would be expected to reduce the risk of this type of injury. The aim of the study is to determine the feasibility of identifying the aortic bifurcation by palpation prior to
