The most commonly: performed operation that re-routes the intestines is the gastric bypass (the roux-en-Y gastric bypass). The duodenal switch also does this, but is much less common. The sleeve gastrectomy (vertical gastrectomy) and the lap band do not change the intestinal anatomy at all. However, the sleeve does remove approx 2/3 of the excess stomach. ...Read more
Is this the truth: everyone's anatomy is different, everyone's gait is different, there is no one "correct" gait?
Not sure: But they are pretty common and in low risk women, which you are, given your other negative tests, they are almost always meaningless. This is a great article actually written by my father... It is a little outdated as there has since been a statement released downplaying soft markers.

Nerve innervation inconsistencies why are there so many inconsistencies on the innervation of nerves between anatomy books?
People : People who look at several different anatomy books often notice subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, differences between descriptions and depictions of nerves and other anatomical structures. There are many reasons for the discrepancies, but one of the most practical reasons is that human anatomy is actually different from person to person. Another important reason is that most anatomy books are based, at least in part on doctrine rooted in the different schools of thought that grew up over the hundreds of years that anatomy has been studied and taught. Early modern anatomy (which was itself greatly influenced by classical texts passed on via the arabic schools) began in the 15th century. Great schools of anatomy included those at bologna, padua, heidelberg, and oxford. The modern "classic" anatomy texts are authored or edited by scholars who can probably trace their scholarly ancestry back to those schools. Another important concept is that advanced students of anatomy recognize that the primary function of an anatomy text is to demonstrate an organizational framework by which to logically arrange our understanding of a complex, observational science, rather than to indicate hard and fast "laws" of human anatomy. The most modern anatomy texts usually incorporate a more scientific approach. They attempt to describe the general themes of anatomy, and provide some commentary on the normal and abnormal variants encountered during dissection of a (relatively small) group of cadavers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
