Join Professor Zach Murphy in this lecture where we begin our discussion on the development and embryology of the gastrointestinal tract. We begin this two part series by learning the embryologic foldings of the gut, and how we derive from that the foregut, midgut, and hindgut. Additionally, we begin talking about what makes structures intraperitoneal or retroperitoneal, and how structures within the abdomen are further divided into primary retroperitoneal, and secondary retroperitoneal. Finally, we touch on a few pathologies that tie into our discussion including omphalocele, gastroschisis, and Meckel's diverticulum.
