Integral Anatomy Series: Volume 3
Cranial and Visceral Fascia
VOLUME THREE: running time: @1 hour, 53 min, DVD.
This volume covers the fascial and membranous layers which surround the cranial and visceral spaces. You’ve heard of the dura, arachnoid, pia, endothoracic fascia, pleura, transversalis fascia, peritoneum, and pericardium. These layers are literally impossible to understand by looking at books or by hearing about them in classes, and are rarely demonstrated clearly even in the laboratory. Sequenced with the first two volumes, this stunning presentation plainly demonstrates these bag-like layers which define the spaces of our organs and central nervous tissues.
The peritoneum is demonstrated in its entirety as perhaps never before in a spectacular on-camera dissection, the dura is revealed with its sinuses, healthy and pathological adhesions are explored and explained. Central to this presentation is the respiratory diaphragm, which cannot be understood apart from the serous membranes upon which it acts.
Here it is demonstrated with absolute clarity in its continuity with the fascial and membranous layers of the viscera. These layers are integral structures of the human form, surrounding the major organs of the body. Their functions are plainly influenced directly by our touch and movement, and now a clear and simple vision of them can be added to your knowledge foundations.
A comprehensive understanding of these deeper layers requires a thorough understanding of the more superficial ones. All are strongly encouraged to engage the material in Vols. 1 & 2 to achieve a full appreciation and understanding of Vol. 3. The material found on these disks is unique, cannot be found in books, and represents a leap beyond established regional perspectives.
