Anatomy dissection is very important step in surgery. Without knowing the procedures of anatomy dissection one can never be a good surgeon.
Clement Anatomy Dissector Pdf Review:
One of my objectives in writing this book was to combine a home study exercise with a laboratory dissection experience. Each chapter is a separate dissection and lesson. Indexed to Clemente’s Anatomy, A Regional Atlas of the Human Body (4th Edition) with references to three other popular atlases (Grant’s Atlas, 11th Edition; Netter’s Atlas, 3rd Edition; and Rohen’s Atlas, 5th Edition), the student learns the step-by-step dissection procedure for the laboratory along with relevant text information that enhances the laboratory work. At home, the learning process can be repeated by reading the text of each chapter and, following the dissection procedure, by simultaneously viewing the line drawings of this book and the relevant pages or plates in one of the referenced atlases. The dissection directions are detailed beyond those of other currently used laboratory manuals, allowing students the opportunity to dissect on their own if they wish to do so, yet the text is brief and stresses essentials. Usually, each dissection will require one laboratory period of 2.5 to 3 hours. Exceptions to this may be the dissections of the pelvis and perineum, which may require some more time. The descriptions for these latter two dissections are similar in format. They include sections to be dissected similarly in both sexes and then special instructions required for individual dissections in male and female cadavers. One need not defend again the value of dissecting the human body in schools of medicine and the other health professions. Experience through the centuries has proved its value in introducing the student to the study of medicine and its allied professions. Some have claimed that often “irrelevant” information was stressed in anatomy dissection courses. I have tried to select a dissection method that exposed essential structures in the most straightforward manner. No part of the body is summarily excluded, allowing the book to be of value for various types of curricula. One departure from other dissection guides introduced in this book and suggested by my colleague, the late Professor David Maxwell, is the dissection of the posterior triangle of the neck immediately following that of the axilla but before the remainder of the upper limb. This allows the student to see the source of the neurovascular structures that supply the shoulder, arm, forearm, and hand.
In this book, significant attention is paid to surface anatomy in virtually every relevant dissection. This aspect of anatomy is of prime importance for its clinical implications. Because the dissections are described in separate chapters, the study guide can be used in virtually any of the varied curricula and course sequences in our health science schools. The sequence of dissection chapters follows from the pectoral region to the upper limb, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, lower limb, back, neck, and head. Additionally, the separate dissection chapters and their subheadings can readily be selected to meet the needs of a systems curriculum or to a classical regional sequence that commences in parts of the body other than the pectoral and upper limb regions. Many of the line drawings in this book were done by the artist Ms. Jill Penkhus in Los Angeles. Many others were produced under the direction of Professor Gene Colborn several years ago at the Medical College of Georgia for the Urban & Schwarzenberg Publishing Company. Still others were drawn by Ms. Patricia Vetter. I am most grateful to Ms. Penkhus, Ms. Vetter, and especially to Professor Colborn for their contributions. My appreciation is also extended to Mr. Timothy Satterfield and Ms. Susan Katz at Lippincott Williams & Wilkins for their patience as well as Ms. Ulita Lushycky for her most effective managing of the manuscript. Finally, but by no means least, I am most grateful to Julie, my wife, who has spent many hours at the computer during the development and eventual completion of the manuscript.
My appreciation goes to the many faculty and students who have used this dissector. Its wide acceptance not only in the United States but in foreign countries as well has been most gratifying. Several significant changes have been made. One is that in the first edition, dissection of the posterior triangle of the neck (which contains the neurovascular structures for the upper limb) was introduced just prior to dissections on the pectoral girdle and upper limb. In subsequent editions, the posterior triangle of the neck was shifted to the section on neck and head dissections
just prior to the anterior triangle dissection. This change was made only because most courses use this latter dissection sequence and not because it especially makes better anatomic sense. Since publication of the first edition of this dissector, new editions of the Grant’s, Netter’s, and Rohen atlases have appeared. Thus, the 3rd edition is now cross-referenced with the new 6th edition of the Clemente atlas, the 12th edition of the Grant’s atlas, the 4th edition of Netter, and the 7th edition of Rohen. Many new figures have been introduced, several of which have come from the 30th American edition of Gray’s Anatomy, which I edited and which appeared in 1985. Many positive comments have been received from course chairs that each dissection is a separate “chapter” in the book, making it easy in their assignments to the students. This format has also been appreciated by chairs whose courses do not include dissections of the entire
body or, perhaps, even certain dissections within specific body regions. I have also attempted to edit some descriptive material in the various dissections and have added paragraphs on clinical relevance. My appreciation again goes to Professor Gene Colborn for several drawings in this book, along with artists Jill Penkhus and Patricia Vetter. At Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, my appreciation is extended to Ms. Betty Sun and especially to Ms. Crystal Taylor and Ariel Winter. At UCLA my many thanks are extended to my Gross Anatomy colleagues Professors Shaleen Metten, Robin Fisher, Guido Zampighi, David Hovda, Charles Olmstead, Anna Taylor, Yau Shi Lin, Jayc Sedlmayer, and Francesco Chiappelli for their suggestions and for their use of this book in their courses.
Features of Anatomy Dissector Pdf:
Here is the list of features;
- Each chapter can be used on its own, as a separate dissection and lesson, in the sequence most appropriate for any anatomy course. Therefore, the arrangement of the content makes this dissector applicable to varied curricula.
- Basic information on surface anatomy and related preparatory techniques precedes the dissecting instructions.
- This text is printed in black on white background.
- Dissection procedures are printed in black on a shaded red background. Figure references are color-coded in red, so the student can easily establish the connection between figures and dissecting steps.
- Important structures are set in boldface in text. Some cautionary statements are set in capitalized letters.
- References to Clemente’s atlas are embedded in the text.
- However, cross-references to other major atlases are placed in a middle column next to the appropriate procedure.
- Red arrows clearly indicate to which column the references correspond.
- The beginning of each dissection lists the referenced atlases, their corresponding edition numbers, and information indicating whether the numbers refer to plates or pages.
