Development of the Abdominopelvic Region

by Peter Ward, PhD

Beginning at the trilaminar embryo stage and following the development of the abdomen and pelvis, along with the organs therein, this course introduces you to the expansion and rotations of the foregut, midgut, and hindgut, along with other associated organs of the digestive, immune, urinary, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Clinical conditions and various anomalies will be presented as and when they relate to development.

You will soon know be able to describe how rotation, expansion, and migration create the distinctive regions of foregut, midgut, and hindgut. Furthermore, you will be given insights into how endodermic expansions create the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen.

Peter Ward, Ph.D. will show you how the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, adrenal glands, testes, and ovaries form and link with specific ducts to create the internal male and female urogenital systems. Thanks to the many details within this series of lectures, you will be able to identify various clinical or pathologic conditions which may arise during these processes.

As you mention words/features, would be nice if the words on the screen were highlighted on the images. Hard to find them in the midst of listening.
