as a procedure, making it a candidate.  If you visit the UMLS metathesaurus https://uts.nlm.nih.gov/metathesaurus.html
and enter the CUI C0194825 .  The metathesaurus will display (among other things):

wall of the abdomen.

add a jira item as a "nice to have" and maybe somebody will implement it.  It isn't in there
now because I didn't want the display to get cluttered.
