Summary This book teases out in detailed but simple diagramatic form the essential steps in the development of the adult peritoneal cavity. An understanding of these embryolog- ical principles allows the abdominal operating surgeon to reverse to a greater or lesser degree some or many of these embryological events, so mobilising the target organ or organs and allowing the procedure to be completed safely with minimal blood loss. To this end the whereabouts and nature of the essential avascular zygotic cleavage planes are emphasised. These surgical manoevres are illustrated by photographs of cadaver dissections
