The mesentery is that part of the lining of the abdominal cavity that attaches the stomach, small intestine, pancreas, spleen, and other abdominal organs to the posterior wall of the abdomen. Recent discoveries related tothe human mesentery offer an opportunity to reappraise it across a wide range of scientific and clinical disciplines. This book provides novel insights into the human mesenteric organ, which will be described in terms ofhistory, anatomy, embryology, histology, pathology, radiology, surgery, oncology, and education.
- Reappraises the human mesentery from anatomy to clinical applications in pathology, radiology, and surgery
- Focuses exclusively on the structure, function, and clinical significance of the human mesentery bringing together the latest research in a single volume
- Illustrated in full color with detailed 3D images created especially for the book
- Points to a companion website containing archived images, models, and animations
