Mesentery: A new organ discovered

An amazing discovery has been done by the scientists. Scientists have discovered aa new an organ: Mesentery.

The mesentery is a fold of the peritoneum ( a serous membrane that forms the lining of the abdominal cavity) which attaches the stomach, small intestine, pancreas, spleen, and other organs to the posterior wall of the abdomen. 

Scientists have revealed that it is a continuous organ.

J Calvin Coffey, a researcher at the University Hospital Limerick said that” Now we have established anatomy and the structure. The next step is the function. If you understand the function you can identify abnormal function, and then you have a disease.”

According to some, it helps in controlling body fat. Medical students and researchers can now investigate what role the mesentery might play in abdominal diseases, which it is hoped could ultimately lead to new treatments.

This discovery has opened for new discoveries and inventions and may ultimately lead to a cure of abdominal diseases.
