23.14 Proventriculotomy. Stay sutures have been placed in the cranial proventriculus and the ventriculus. The tip of the liver lobe can be reflected to expose the incision site and then tacked down over the incision after closure. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.

23.15 Any surgeon may be confronted with a patient requiring surgery for yolk peritonitis. In this case the bird was diagnosed with a uterine adenocarcinoma. The enlarged oviduct can be seen on the left side of this bird’s coelom.
Image of 23.16
23.16 Landmarks for a salpingohysterectomy. The ovary is located between the cranial division of the kidney and the lung. The oviduct is suspended from the dorsal coelomic wall by the dorsal mesosalpinx, which contains several large and many small blood vessels. The oviduct opens into the cloaca; the site for ligation is indicated by the black ligature. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 23.17
23.17 Landmarks for an orchidectomy. The testicle lies between the cranial division of the kidney and the lung, adjacent to the adrenal gland. Drawn by S.J. Elmhurst BA Hons (www.livingart.org.uk) and reproduced with her permission.
Image of 23.18
23.18 Temporary ventoplasty. Simple interrupted sutures have been used to close the lateral margins of the slit-like vent. A purse-string suture is contraindicated as it would distort the shape of the vent.
