Pope Francis’ surgery will be a laparotomy. This term denotes the collection of all surgical techniques performed by making an incision along the abdominal wall. In general, there are three different types of laparotomy and they differ in how the abdominal incision is made: vertical laparotomies (vertical incisions are of the xipho-umbilical type; umbilical-pubic; high trans-rectal; low para-rectal) transverse laparotomy (horizontal incisions: used in pancreatic and adrenal surgery), oblique laparotomy (oblique incision: Kocher’s subcostal; McBurney’s iliac).
