An interesting study of omental application for the treatment of degenerative neurological diseases and injuries, Goldsmith and colleagues present alternative uses for the rich blood supply found in the omentum. Treatment of spinal cord injuries, arachnoiditis, Moyamoya disease, cerebral ischemia, and Alzheimer disease are discussed.
