  10. colon wall histology
    • (1) a simple columnar epithelium which forms crypts,
    • (2) lamina propria,
    • (3) muscularis mucosa,
    • (4) submucosa,
    • (5) muscularis propria formed by an inner circular and outer longitudinal layer of smooth muscle,
    • (6) serosa.
  11. The function of the colon is
    • (1) absorption of water, SCFA, baterialmetabolitesand electrolytes
    • (2) propulsion and storage of unabsorbed fecal waste for evacuation
  12. PS colon

  14. intrinsic plexus colon
    • (myenteric or Auerbach’s/submucous
    • or Meissner’s).
    • An absence of intrinsic plexuses occurs in Hirschsprung’s Disease resulting in tonic wall contraction and functional obstruction.

    • slow-transit constipation,

  16. 3 types of contraction
    • individual phasic contractions of short and long duration
    • oraganized groups of contractions
    • special propulsive contractions
  17. individual phasic contractions of short and long duration
    • basic unit
    • short <15 sec
    • long 40-60 sec
    • highly disorganized in time and space
    • mixing, kneading, slow distal propulsion
  18. special propulsive contractions
    Giant migrating contractions
  19. defecation: 2 stages
    • involuntary-short, long duration, GMC>propulsion
    • voluntary
  20. defecation
    • bowel wall m. relaxes > distention > accomodation
    • sensory receptors in anal canal > threshold stimulation of afferent n endings > involuntary anal reflex
    • mass peristaltic wave abouve mass, distal rectum and IAS relax, EAS contracts all at same time >accomodation or , if elimination to proceed > voluntary inhibition of EAS contraction
  21. defecation
    glottis closes > Intraabdominal pressure inc, voluntary m of abdominal wall contracted, diaphragm descends > relaxation of pelvic m > descent of pelvic floor, straightening of anorectal angle
  22. Cecum
    • rests on iliacus and psoas major
    • anomaly of fixation > volvulus
  23. Ureters
    • rest on psoas muscle in inferomedial course
    • crossed by spermatic vessels anteriorly
    • crossed by genitofemoral nerve posteriorly
  24. R ureter

    • crossed anteriorly by spermatic vessels, R coloc and Iliocolic AA
    • crosses in front of CIA bifurcation in pelvis

    • female: crosses posterior layer of broad ligament
    • uterine artery crosses above and lateromedially
  25. Transverse colon
    dissect greater omentum off anterosuperor aspect to mobilize and to enter lesser sac of peritoneum
  26. rectosigmoid junction
    • s3
    • sacral promonotory

    end is anorectal ring
  28. mesorectum
    • perirectal areolar tissue
    • thicker posteriory

    • enclosed by fascia propria
  29. fascia propria of rectum
    • distal condensation forms lateral ligaments
