Normally we divide the stomach into 4 quadrants and in the case of no defect it declares 1st choice, in the case of a quadrant with defect it is 2nd, in the case of two quadrants it is 3rd. Clearly the importance of the defect, the type of use and the object for which the skin was made influences the evaluation: a closed scar can be invisible, a parasite that could represent a defect can instead be seen as the natural part of the skin.
