An incision one and a half to two inches in length ismade parallel to and a fingers breadth from the border ofthe left costal cartilage, ending opposite the border of thetenth rib ; the tissues are divided layer by layer until theperitoneum is reached (Fig. 496). The latter membraneshould be pinched up and opened ; the stomach is recog-nized and brought out of the wound; the parietal perito-neum is stitched to the skin around the wound, and a foldof the unopened stomach is brought out of the woundand sutured to the parietal peritoneum and the abdominalwall. The opening of the stomach is delayed for twenty- GASTROSTOMY. 593 four hours, if possible, to allow of the formation of adhe-sions between its surface and the parietal peritoneum.
