What Is Botal's Foramen?

From The Unnamable:
No, I can't move, not yet. One minute in a skull and the next in a belly, strange, and the next nowhere in particular. Perhaps it's Botal's Foramen, when all about me palpitates and labours.

[From The Dissector's Manual of Practical and Surgical Anatomy
by Erasmus Wilson, 1856]
