By Simone W. on 17. February 2019 for Abdomen

Smaller bits of information that is very clear and concise makes for easier understanding of concepts as a whole. I appreciate the "bite-sized" learning, well done.

 
Very good lecture
By Ana G. on 15. February 2019 for Inguinal Hernias – Inguinal Region

Very clear . The image is excellent. The causes of the hernia are taken in other lectures and this one is focused on the way that is made. perfect for a first approximation to surgery.
