Abstract

Shakespeare’s reverence for the structure of the human body found expression in his writings: “What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form and moving, how express and admirable! In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals!” (Hamlet 2.2.315–319). This chapter details the surgical anatomy and discuss the importance of various structures and the care to be taken during surgery.
