Human anatomy; a dissection manual.


Human anatomy; a dissection manual.

Kiran, Sujatha.

Jaypee Bros.


406 pages




Drawing on forty-plus years of service in various medical colleges, Kiran (anatomy, MNR Medical College, Sangareddy, Andhra Pradesh, India) presents a text designed primarily for undergraduate students, suitable also for postgraduate students seeking a quick revision. Written with a view that a single body is given to a set of students for the whole year, the text opens with a general introduction to human anatomy and dissection, followed by sections documenting the regional division of the body: upper limb, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, lower limb, head and neck, and central nervous system. Living and surface anatomy is incorporated at places to help students understand the correlation between the structures seen in the cadaver and their functions in living humans. The book is illustrated with color diagrams.
