Large Intestine Structure and Function (preview) – Human Anatomy | Kenhub

Hello everyone! This is Megan from Kenhub,
and welcome to another anatomy tutorial. In today’s tutorial, we’re going to be talking
about the large intestine. The function of the large intestine is to absorb fluids and
salts from the indigestible food matter and to collect and eventually relieve the body
of waste matter. This tutorial will go over some anatomical features specific to the large
intestine as well as discussing its different segments. To finish up the tutorial, we’ll
talk about a few pathological disorders which are related to the large intestine. To begin this tutorial, we will describe the
different sections of the large intestine. If we go through the length of the large intestine
from left to right, we can see several sections. The large intestine is divided into the caecum
(cecum) with its vermiform appendix, the ascending colon, the transverse colon, the descending
colon, the sigmoid colon… Hi guys, as you can see, this video is a preview

  1. Hi everyone! Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek at our video on the large intestine. There is still a lot more to go through, so don't miss it! The full tutorial is available at for Kenhub Premium members, but if you’re not a member yet, we have this free article which covers the large intestine in great detail: See you there! 😀

  2. After this video I would never become a member of kenhub. If you want to have advertisement do it in another way not in the middle of educational video for god sake! I was trying to learn something. That is such a abject advertisement.
