We would like to add a comment on another important contribution of Arthur Keith
to the Weld of herniology, that is, the original and accurate
description of the inguinal “shutter” mechanism, a remarkable
anatomic action against development of an inguinal hernia. [...] Today, virtual reality surgical
simulation models allowing three-dimensional (3D) visualization
of the human inguinal anatomy can be used as a complementary tool to assess dynamics of the inguinal area. In fact, using simulations with the Wnite element
method we have recently confirmed the physiological “shutter” mechanism already described almost 100 years ago. These virtual reality Wndings are our present
tribute to the outstanding anatomic descriptions of Arthur
