So in conclusion, we have looked at the
position of the large intestine with kind of
viewed it onto the wall of
the abdomen, looked at the surface anatomy.
And then we have explored the gross anatomy of the
large intestine looking at the cecum and the appendix.
And then we spoke about the appendicitis briefly.
Relations of the large intestine to other
abdominal organs. We have looked at the wall structure
and diverticulosis and how that is related to the diverticulitis.
We then briefly towards the
end, looked at the arterial supply
to the large intestine and how the superior,
inferior mesentery arteries and the formation
of the marginal artery contribute
to its blood supply. And then briefly
again at the end, we looked
at the autonomic control of the large intestine.
