Preparation of the cadaver and opening the coelomic cavity necropsy technique in poultry Extraction of the internal organs Extraction of the internal organs Fig. Unlike mammals, birds do not have two cavities, thoracic and abdominal, but just one internal cavity called the coelomic cavity, where most of the vital organs are found. To open the coelomic cavity, make a cut in the area located below the breast using a pair of scissors fig. Next, make two small lateral cuts until reaching the ribs, and with the help of the bone cutting forceps cut the ribs in the cranial direction fig. This is the precise moment to assess the presence of diverse exudates and the condition of the air sacs, as on the removal of the organs these will most likely break.
