German term or phrase: e.m.
The text in question is a protocol from a gyno tumor board.
The patient has endometrial cancer.

The passage reads:

"Z.n. Längslap e.m."

The abbreviation can be found under "Therapy" as well
"Z.n. Längslap, HE, AE, OE, LNE e.m."

The only solution I found online was "ejusdem mensis."

Thank you!

Explanation:
Possibly, the surgeons did not choose the usual midline access for laparotomy?

Yes, definitely laparatomy, there is no "Längslaparaskopie". "Längs-" is the vertically oriented section (-tomy), while laparascopy involves several small incisions which may be vertical als well, but would never be called "längs" as their precise orientation does not really play a role at all.

Actually, e.m. should probably go with Längslap in your second example, if it really were extramedian ("Längslap e.m., HE, AE, OE, LNE", rather than "Längslap, HE, AE, OE, LNE e.m."). The word order speaks for ejusdem mensis.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you, Anne! This makes the most sense so far. Is Längslap laparotomy and not laparoscopy? There is no further description in the report and either one could be the case.
