Mesenterium 牽腸・掛肚

Mesenterium 牽腸・掛肚

Internal Wonderland – Human Body series 奇妙人體樂園系列

若果你不知道這是身體內的甚麼東西,我建議你看一看下面連結的視頻(英文)。中文的資訊比較少,也並不特別精采,我就不在這裡分享了。我用「牽腸・掛肚」這個名字很實在-它真的牽引着你的腸子,讓腸子掛在你的肚子裡。比起它的學術名稱「腸繫膜」,「牽腸・掛肚」多浪漫啊!

If you don’t know what is this organ (I bet you probably won’t know), I invite you to watch the video below. In short, it is a very important organ, that  is rarely mentioned nor draws people’s attention. It is the first structure to be developed in the embryo, and its specific spiral shape probably allow us to stand up as a human being like we are today.
