Above vs. below the umbilicus
By Yasna W. on 09. July 2019 for Rectus Sheath II โ€“ Anterolateral Abdominal Wall

The description of the layers of tissue above vs. below the arcuate line has been explained to us in the PA anatomy class, yet remained unclear. After the visuals and the step-by-step walk through in your lecture, finally, I understand! Thank you! :)

Not the greatest
By Nicholas W. on 21. June 2019 for Muscles of the Anterolateral Abdominal Wall โ€“ Abdominal Walls and Inguinal Canal

This man is obviously very smart but it is seriously painful to listen to ANY of his lectures. His stuttering is way to distracting.

Clarifies the Peritoneum Perfectly!
By Yasho S. on 13. May 2019 for Abdominal Cavity โ€“ Peritoneum

Dr. Pickering walks through each piece of parietal and visceral peritoneal pleura and makes it so much easier to understand. Great video!

Great Video for Inguinal Canal!
By Yasho S. on 13. May 2019 for Inguinal Canal โ€“ Inguinal Region

Best video I have found on the inguinal canal! Simple, clear and easy to understand.
