More than 50 cases have been reported since its first description by Kariminejad and Scully.1 However, only 5 cases were reported to be malignant, with metastases found in the omentum , liver, or lung.
Diagnostic laparoscopy was performed, which revealed dilated veins in the omentum and falciform ligament, a nodular liver, and a mass in the right lower quadrant.
If the cyst is found to be cancerous, you may need more serious treatment to remove both of the ovaries, the uterus, a fold of fatty tissue called the omentum and some lymph nodes.
Herniated bowel (stomach, small bowel, colon) and solid viscera (liver, omentum , spleen) are seen in the ipsilateral hemithorax causing mediastinal shift.
Intraoperative fine needle aspirates of the pancreas, as well as biopsies from the omentum and regional lymph nodes, were negative for malignancy.
Five years following initial diagnosis, this patient developed recurrence in the liver with distant spread to the omentum , abdominal cavity, and ovary without evidence for either an intestinal or appendiceal tumor.
Several small 2-to 3-cm satellite tumor nodules were present in both lobes of the liver and in the omentum .
Examples of earlier methods include one researcher's use of omentopexy, which is the fixation of the omentum to an adjacent organ, reported in 1935 and another researcher's use of thoracic artery implantation reported in 1954.
The lesser omentum contains the left gastric artery, a branch of the celiac artery, and the right gastric branch of the hepatic artery.
The omentum , peritoneal ligaments, and celiac vessel and its tributaries provide additional support.
