The definition of the transition will affect the scientific community on the mesentery, and teaching materials around the world will also usher in the update.From the "organization" to "organs", the scientists will be more careful study of mesenteric structure and function. All medical students around the world will learn in the future that the mesentery is an organ.
The discovery of the main researcher J. Calvin Coffey said the recognition of the significance lies in opening up a new scientific research. If scientists learn more about how the mesentery interacts with the digestive system, it can develop better disease treatment strategies.
