Description

Lockwood writes: 'Anatomists who have written concerning the arteries of the abdomen and their relations to the peritoneum display considerable divergence of opinion. This want of uniformity may perhaps be due to the fact, that owing to the complications of the serous membrane it is hard to trace the course of the vessels without seriously disturbing their relations.' The paper begins by explaining that it records an endeavour to elucidate the course and relations of the abdominal blood vessels upon developmental grounds. The earliest stages of the development of the midgut and its mesentery are described, and it is shown that vessels extend at very frequent intervals from the dorsal aorta to the intestine, reaching the latter by way of the mesentery.

Includes two pages of hand-drawn diagrams and eight corresponding printed diagrams.
