1. The Gid ha'Nasheh of a bird is not forbidden, because it is not rounded.
2. According to Rebbi Meir, the Gid ha'Nasheh and Chelev of a fully developed, live fetus (Ben Peku'ah) which was found in its mother after Shechitah is forbidden. Rebbi Yehudah disagrees.
3. According to Rebbi Meir, one must burrow after the Gid ha'Nasheh and cut out its fat from its root. Rebbi Yehudah maintains that it suffices to level it off and remove just the surface fat.
4. Even according to Rebbi Meir, the fat of the Gid ha'Nasheh is permitted Min ha'Torah. It is forbidden only d'Rabanan.
5. According to Rav, only the nerves that are offshoots of the Gid ha'Nasheh are forbidden, but not the Gid ha'Nasheh itself. Ula disagrees.
6. The strands in the Chelev and the kidneys of an animal are prohibited, but one who eats them is not Chayav Kares.
7. Rebbi and Rebbi Chiya disagree about whether the white in the kidneys are prohibited.
A BIT MORE
1. If the Gid ha'Nasheh of a bird was rounded, or that of an animal was not rounded, there is a doubt about whether it is prohibited.
2. According to Rebbi Meir, a Ben Peku'ah requires Shechitah. Since it requires Shechitah, it is not considered part of the mother, and hence the Gid ha'Nasheh and Chelev are prohibited. Rebbi Yehudah maintains that a Ben Peku'ah is permitted with the Shechitah of its mother, and the Chelev and Gid ha'Nasheh is permitted.
3. According to Rebbi Meir, all of the fat of the Gid ha'Nasheh is forbidden. According to Rebbi Yehudah, the fat is permitted Min ha'Torah, but the surface fat must be removed and thrown away mid'Rabanan so that it not appear as though one is eating the Gid ha'Nasheh. The fat and Gid ha'Nasheh that is beneath the surface is permitted.
4. The Torah prohibits only the Gid ha'Nasheh, but not the fat.
5. According to Rav, since the Gid ha'Nasheh is hard and tasteless, it could not have been the intent of the Torah to prohibit it. Rather, the intent of the Torah was to prohibit the offshoots of the Gid ha'Nasheh. Ula maintains that even though the Gid ha'Nasheh is hard and tasteless, the Torah still prohibits it.
6. The strands are the nerves and blood vessels which run through the Chelev and the kidneys. They are prohibited only mid'Rabanan, and therefore one who eats them is not Chayav Kares.
7. The "white" refers to the fat of the kidneys. Rabah and Rebbi Yochanan rooted it out, while Rav Asi merely removed the surface fat but ate the fat inside the kidneys.
