Although, useful in inflammatory conditions, the greater omentum represents an important site of metastasis in peritoneal carcinomatosis and is therefore frequently removed as a staging or therapeutic tool. Apart from the milky spots, omental adipose stem cells, and adipocytes have recently been identified to play a role in the preferential homing of tumor cells to the omentum. The extent of omentectomy and whether a routine omentectomy should be done are still known unknowns. J. Surg. Oncol. 2014 110:670-675. (c) 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
