Reid DG. The genesis of Jackson's membrane: notes on the genito-mesenteric fold of peritoneum and the supra-adhesion foramen. (1914) J Anat. Physiol. 48: 432-44. PMID 17233009
|Online Editor Note
| This historic 1914 paper by Reid is a description of the development of Jackson's membrane
Jackson's membrane - (Jackson's veil, fascia prececocolica) a thin, inconstant portion of endo-abdominal fascia, in the form of a vascular membrane or veil-like adhesion, crossing anterior to the cecum and extending superiorly onto a portion of the ascending colon, sometimes as far as the right colic flexure. May be involved or cause the bowel to kink or become obstructed.
Modern Notes: gastrointestinal abnormalities
