Recently, a new human organ in the digestive system has been discovered by the scientists. Mesentery was considered as part of a structure in human body while its presence was known earlier also. But now, it has be named as a separate organ.
Researcher in the study, J Calvin Coffey, told that the anatomy structure of last 100 years has been proved wrong by this while this organ is simply has a continuous structure.
The mesentery is in the lining of the abdominal cavity which connects abdomen and intestines. So far, specific function of mesentery is unknown but studying it as a distant organ will help to find its impacts on the human digestive system.
Coffey added that operation of bodies will not be changed with finding this new organ but it will help to start a new medical science field. Gray’s Anatomy series is the world’s best medical textbook and the organ has been included in this book also.
