epigastrorrhaphy

Postby ibarton65 » Mon May 25, 2009 4:15 pm

I know this term exists - it's in the medical dictionaries (some of them). As part of my weekly assignment, I need to actually discuss the meaning of the word, not just the definition. I've been all over the "net" and cannot find the word anywhere. Can someone please help me - or at least give me some sites where I might be able to get some more information on this term?

Thanks a million...

Hello ibarton 65!
I'm not quite sure what you're looking for with this one. Isn't the meaning of the word the same as the definition? Or are you looking for the meaning of each of the parts of the word? If this is the case, you can break the word into parts and look for the meaning of each part:
epi-
gastro-
-rrhaphy

We have the term gastrorrhaphy in the dictionary but not epigastrorrhaphy - I couldn't find it in any of the other online medical dictionaries, so it can't be a common term.

Does this help you at all?

Thanks for your reply. I know how to break down the term, but I needed to discuss it with references being noted. So, after too many hours of going crazy, I chose another word.

I appreciate your help...

:arrow: a suture of an abdominal wound in the epigastric area.
