Abstract

For surgical practice, behavioral anatomy is more important than variational anatomy. It has been possible, indeed, to define rules and behavioral explanations that allow us to understand and thus memorize easily the overwhelming number of variations in the abdominal blood supply. Variational anatomy is like the wiring diagram of a television set, whereas behavioral anatomy is its remote controller.
