Medical (general) / rectal surgery
French term or phrase: abaissement complet
In a report on a patient undergoing anterior resection of the rectum: "Décollement colo épiplooique de la droite vers la droite. Abaissement complet de l'angle gauche. Section entre ligatures de la veine mésentérique inférieure au niveau de l'angle duodéno jéjunal." If I understand correctly, the colon and omentum were separated from right to left. The next sentence I'm not sure about. Is it referring to mobilisation of the left end of the colon? Any informed advice much appreciated. TIA.

Explanation:
of the splenic flexure

I guess they say "abaissement" because it has to be pulled downwards to be completely dissected.

Grateful thanks, Sue. I wasn't sure about the "angle" either and you've clarified it. (Apologies for the typo!)
