German term or phrase: Douglas
The document involved consists of 22 pages of reports about a woman with a growth in her abdomen who has had to have a head-of-pancreas and duodenum resection Whipple-Kausch pylorus preserving operation. This is the first of a number of questions I hope someone will be able to answer.

"Douglas" occurs in the following sentences. "Anschliessend wurde ein Zystofix-Katheter in die prall gefuellte Harnblase eingelegt. Eine 20er Robinsondrainage in den Douglas und eine 20er Robinsondrainage an die Pankreas-Resektionsstelle, bzw. die bilodigestive Anastomose.
