Update on Conventional Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Anatomy

Part III: Infra-hepatic anatomy

13:34 Large intestines


In 2015, TVASurg team presented at the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) annual meeting on Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) Anatomy. In this presentation, we shared our perspective on surgical anatomy as visual communicators. Using a plethora of surgical footage and 3D computer models, we drew comparisons between how abdominal anatomy is commonly depicted, and what we actually observe in surgery.

This material is adapted from the presentation and divided into a three-part series. We explore the infra-hepatic anatomical structures in this video: the stomach, pancreas, and the small and large intestines. We pay particular attention to the interspatial relationships between these structures, and how they influence the pathological and surgical aspects in HPB procedures.
