From the values in Table II and Figure 1, it can be seen that in the inframesocolonic area (pre greater omentum, retro greater omentum and pelvic sub-spaces) about 77 % of the visceral peritoneum is located, while about 62 % of the parietal peritoneum is located in the supramesocolonic region.
In the current study, in group II, the visceral peritoneum had been left opened, which had been complicating significant adhesions: both adnexal interfering with tubal motility and nonadnexal between the uterus and bladder, while closing the parietal peritoneum had not been complicated with adhesions, which could support our upcoming results.

(12) The College of American Pathologists suggests the following findings to represent serosal involvement (pT4a): tumor present at the serosal surface with inflammatory reaction, mesothelial hyperplasia, and/or erosion/ulceration, and free tumor cells on the serosal surface with underlying ulceration of the visceral peritoneum. A mesothelial inflammatory and/or hyperplastic reaction with tumor close to, but not at, the serosal surface is currently not included in the pT4a category according to the College of American Pathologists cancer protocol.
The visceral peritoneum accounts for about 80% of the total peritoneal surface area (Blake & Daugirdas, 2001).

The dorsal mesentery gives rise to the lesser omentum, falciform ligament and the visceral peritoneum of the liver.
--Tumor penetrates to the surface of the visceral peritoneum (serosa) and directly invades adjacent structures (specify: )
Parts A and C of Figure 4 illustrate the ovarian tubule with normal oocytes in the lumen; parts B and D show the EOs growing among cells of the visceral peritoneum toward the coelomic cavity.
Dwell time also plays a role in determining how much of the insulin hi the visceral peritoneum will be absorbed into the portal venous circulation.
During laparoscopy, abdominal tuberculosis is suggested by macroscopic signs like tubercles/nodules over the peritoneal surfaces, thickening and hyperemia of omentum, inflammatory adhesions and a long fibrous band extending from the parietal to visceral peritoneum called 'Stalactic band' which is quite characteristic of abdominal tuberculosis.
