  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Ventral stream
The ventral stream is associated with object recognition and form representation.
From caudal to rostral, the ventral stream consists of visual areas V1 (primary visual cortex), V2, V4, and the areas of the inferior temporal cortex: PIT (posterior inferotemporal), CIT (central inferotemporal), and AIT (anterior inferotemporal).
All the areas in the ventral stream are influenced by extraretinal factors in addition to the nature of the stimulus in their receptive field.

 Dorsal Ventral Polarity
For example, the dorsal gene is needed for the differentiation of the ventral cells.
The activation of the Toll protein is critical to the establishment of the gradient of the Dorsal protein in the ventral nuclei.
It is important to note that this sequential cascade of events creates a gradient of Spatzle protein that is greatest in the ventral regions of the early embryo, which in turn causes the gradient of Dorsal protein signal to be highest in the most ventral cell nuclei.

  Hernia Center of Southern California About Us
Ventral hernias typically result from a tear or division in the muscles or fascia.
If a ventral hernia is not treated it may increase in size and may become strangulated or incarcerated.
During ventral hernia repair, the mesh is placed underneath the weakness or hole in the abdominal wall.

 MIPInfo.com - Minimally Invasive Procedures (MIP) for a Ventral Hernia
A ventral hernia usually occurs because of a weakening in the abdominal wall due to a previous surgical incision.
Ventral hernias can be dangerous, because abdominal structures, like the intestines, can become stuck or twisted in the hernia.
While the only known treatment is to have the ventral hernia repaired through surgery, it is generally considered to be a low-risk surgical procedure associated with few complications.

 Laparoscopic repair of Ventral Hernia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Ventral hernia results from a weakness in the musculoaponeurotic layer of the anterior abdominal wall.
The laparoscopic technique for ventral hernia repair involves the placement of a tension free prosthetic bridge across the musculofacial defect rather than attempting to approximate the edge of defect.
Contraindication of laparoscopic repair of ventral hernia are very large hernia with huge protrusion of skin which is thin enough and skin fold is necessary to correct by abdominoplasty.

 ventral hernia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Ventral hernias occur on the abdominal surface usually in an area of previous surgery.
The surgery for a ventral hernia can be done as an outpatient or may require a short stay in the hospital.
Risks of ventral hernia repair are rare but include bleeding, infection, risks of anesthesia, and risks of injury to blood vessels or nerves.

 Dorsal-ventral Patterning in Drosophila
Functionally, it is homologous to the chordin gene of Xenopus, which is expressed in the dorsal lip of the blastopore and in the dorsal mesoderm, in particular the notochord.
To test the capacity of sog to form ectopic ventral structures in Drosophila embryos, synthetic sog mRNA was injected dorsally.
Many of these injected embryos also lacked dorsally- or dorsolaterally-derived structures of the head and tail; the anterior maxillary sense organs were missing in 95% of embryos, and the posterior filzkorper were missing in 41% of embryos.

 CiteULike: Hex homeobox gene-dependent tissue positioning is required for organogenesis of the ventral pancreas
Although embryonic tissue movement during gastrulation generates an initial positional relationship between the endoderm and mesoderm, the role of subsequent endoderm movement against the mesoderm in patterning is unknown.
However, when Hex-null ventral endoderm is isolated prior to its interaction with cardiogenic mesoderm and is cultured in vitro, it activates early pancreas genes.
We found that Hex controls the proliferation rate, and thus the positioning, of the leading edge of endoderm cells that grow beyond the cardiogenic mesoderm, during gut tube closure.

Like other hernias, a ventral hernia may become dangerous if left untreated, because abdominal structures, like the intestines, can become stuck or twisted in the hernia, leading to a more complex and riskier operation.
Learn more about the benefits of MIP for ventral hernia repair.
Only your doctor can decide if MIP for ventral hernia repair is right for you, but we can help you start a conversation about it.
