OVERVIEW

The deepening of topographical and systematic anatomy is indispensable for an integrated approach to the clinic and surgery.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The module aims to put the student in a position to understand the organization and structure of the human body in its various components, in an overall vision that integrates organs and apparatuses.

It makes use of systematic, topographical or instrumental approaches for the acquisition of images at different levels of macro and microscopic resolution, for the research of functional activities in relation to specific developments in the biomedical sciences.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The student at the end of the course will know:

describe the contents related to the regions of the head, limbs, chest, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, and the microscopic anatomy of the organs of the human body, with links to descriptive and systematic anatomy (form, position, relationships), topographic (loco-regional) and clinical.

 

At the end of the course students will have developed the ability to:

recognise and analyse the organ/apparatus within the region in which it is located,

analyse simple anatomy-oriented clinical cases;

identify the anatomical bases that led to the pathology described in the examples of clinical cases mentioned during the course.

 

 The study of Anatomy will allow to build solid theoretical and methodological bases that will allow students in Medicine and Surgery to: 

have capacity and autonomy in the realization of organ/pathology and pathology/patient models;

operate correctly in the clinical context.

TEACHING METHODS

The course consists mainly of lectures and a part of the laboratory theoretical/ practical microscopic anatomy.

 

The lectures will be held by the following teachers: Prof. E. Ciccone, Prof. D. Saverino, Prof.ssa D. Zarcone (who will also hold the exercises).

If the pandemic situation persists, the lessons could be held on the online platform Teams.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

General. Anatomical terminology. Anatomical position. Reference planes and sections. Movements. Body regions. Body cavities. Skeletal system. Muscular system. Cardiovascular system.

HEAD - splancnocranium: buccal cavity, tongue, soft palate, temporomandibular articulation nasal cavities, paranasal sinuses, salivary glands, masticatory muscles, pharynx, and vessels of this region.

NECK: intermediate and deep superficial musculature, triangles and contents, cervical belts, arterial and venous vessels and relative plexis, nerves and nervous plexis, viscera (endocrine, alimentary, respiratory layer).

CHEST: Chest wall. Diaphragm. Trachea, bronchi, lungs, pleure. Mediastinum. Heart, pericardium and large vessels. Morphogenesis of the heart. Radiological anatomy of the heart. Fetal circle. Chest vessels. Esophagus. Mammary gland.

ABDOMEN: Bone basin. Anterolateral wall and posterior abdomen muscles. Surface anatomy. Abdominal wall vascularization. Inguinal region and inguinal canal. Testicle, coverings, testicle descent. Spermatic funicular.

PERITONEUM. Abdominal cavity morphogenesis. Abdominal cavity compartments, ligaments, months, epiploon. Stomach, small and large intestine, appendix, liver, gallbladder and gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, ureters, adrenal glands. Arterial vascularity and venous abdominal cavity, portal circulation, port-systemic anastomosis. Retroperitoneal compartment. Lymphatic drainage, sir.

PELVIS - Pelvic cavities and viscera. Floor and pelvic walls muscles. Male and female internal genital organs. Rectum and anal canal. Pelvic peritoneum. Pelvic fascia. Perineum planes and bands. External male and female genital organs. Components of the perineal region.

The course also includes lectures on Microscopic Anatomy, also ultrastructural, and histo-physiology of organs, with observation and recognition of microscopic preparations.

Finally, the course includes lessons that allow to correlate radiological, topographical and clinical anatomy.

SYSTEMATIC ANATOMY

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The assessment of learning will be carried out by means of steps examination:

·     Recognition of preparations of structural anatomy under the microscope, which will be a necessary requirement for the continuation of the examination. To be able to access the oral exam the student must identify at least two of the three preparations anatomo-microscopic that will be proposed to him;

oral examination: the questions will be prepared in order to verify the anatomical knowledge acquired by the student from a systematic and topographical point of view, also with the use of anatomical models

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The verification of learning takes place through the only final exam that aims to ascertain the actual acquisition by the student of the expected learning outcomes.

The student to pass the exam, then report a grade of not less than 18/30, must demonstrate:

 

describe the contents related to the regions of the head, limbs, chest, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, and the microscopic anatomy of the organs of the human body, with links to descriptive and systematic anatomy (form, position, relationships), topographic (loco-regional) and clinical.

recognise and analyse the organ/apparatus within the region in which it is located,

analyse simple anatomy-oriented clinical cases;

identify the anatomical bases that led to the pathology described in the examples of clinical cases mentioned during the course.

 The study of Anatomy will allow to build solid theoretical and methodological bases that will allow students in Medicine and Surgery to: 

have capacity and autonomy in the realization of organ/pathology and pathology/patient models;

operate correctly in the clinical context.

Both forms of examination will be carried out in the presence.

If the pandemic situation persists, the lessons could be held on the online platform Teams.
