Technique for occluding the surpaceliac aorta through the abdomen

Surg Gynecol Obstet. 1980 Sep;151(3):426-8.


A technique for occluding the supraceliac aorta through the abdomen is described. Although the procedure must be carried out without visual control, it can be accomplished safely and rapidly. It is recommended for use in patients in whom previous operations or disease processes make dissection of the infrarenal aorta without prior proximal control difficult and dangerous.
