An Irish surgeon's breakthrough overturned more than a century of medical belief and may lead to improvements in digestive surgery and recovery.

The mesentery, it turns out, is one connected organ, not a disjointed group of separate parts, a theory believed since the 19th Century. The mesentery connects the intestine to the abdomen.

J. Calvin Coffey, a professor at the University of Limerick, reclassified the mesentery after discovering it was contiguous. His findings were published in November in the medical journal The Lancet Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

A new human organ, I never thought i'd see that headline in my lifetime.

It's an interesting find however, in the age of Technological Advancement, seeing things within we had little to no idea existed.


Scientists recently discovered what they are calling a new human organ that exists in the digestive system. Time

Props for bringing it to my attention, the both of you.

This isn't fake news.

But it feels like....non-news to me.

maybe you are offended by inaccurate titles..

It's not a new organ it's just better understood now.

I expect titles and entire articles to be wrong because one dude is writing it, so I just use it as an oppurtunity to study more in depth than reading a single "click bait" article..

Besides my clicks don't load ads..

except on ATS and a few other choice sites.

Turns out it's not new. It was just the first liver he'd ever seen without cirrhosis.



Irish isn't a race, is it? I'd hate to come off as racist.

Well, it isn't technically "new". The parts of the body that are now being called this organ have always been there ("always" in this case meaning as long as science has studied the digestive system in detail), and science has KNOWN that these body parts have always been there, but they never considered these parts to be an "organ".

So it is more of a re-classification of these known parts -- re-classified as being a single organ rather than being a group of separate parts.
