5. Scientists discover new organ in our body
After more than four years of research, scientists have discovered that there exists the mesentery, a "fold of membrane that connects the intestine to the abdomen", and that it is a separate organ with its own specific vital function. Calvin Coffey, a professor of surgery at University of Limerick's Graduate Entry Medical School, and whose findings on this recent discovery was published in November in The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology, says that further study of the mesentery could result in less invasive abdominal surgeries, fewer complications and faster patient recovery.
