Very clear explanations. Areas being discussed are highlighted for visualization. Very thorough. Thank you! Wish you had a video on perineal fascia (colle's, buck's, dartos...) and urine extravasation. Please consider!

very good

I love Lecturio Anatomy lectures because everything that you see it's better and easy to learn. When I see all the names in the ATLAS I'm stressed, but then, when I watch lecturio it's easy because they explain you everything step by step not only theoretically!
