Investigations were made on serial sections of human embryos at developmental stages 16 and 17 (37-41 days). The spinal nucleus of the accessory nerve presents well delimited cellular group in the dorsplateral part of the ventral horn of the spinal cord. The migration zone is still present. In embryos of stage 16 the spinal accessory nerve joints the fibers(More)
INTRODUCTION Many physiological changes of breast elasticity depend on the age, hormonal status, menstrual cycle and many others. The aim of this study was to evaluate viscoelastic properties of normal breast tissues in a large group of women and to search for factors which play a role in its mechanical properties. MATERIAL AND METHODS 101 women aged(More)
UNLABELLED Elastography is a novel technique capable of noninvasively assessing the elastic properties of breast tissue. Because the risk factors for breast cancer include hormonal status and proliferation, the aim of our study was to estimate the intensity of sonoelastographic changes during the menstrual cycle. METHODS Eight women aged 20-23 years with(More)
There is no agreement in the literature as to the time of the onset and progress of the vertebral column ossification. The aim of the present study was to determine the precise sequence of ossification of the neural arches and vertebral centra.Histological and radiographic studies were performed on 27 human foetuses aged from 9 to 21 weeks. It was found(More)
Seven skulls of newborns and of infants aged 3 weeks to 12 months were studied using computed tomography. Size of the maxillary sinuses was measured. Between 3rd and 12th week of life the ethmoidal sinus formed small spaces in ethmoidal labyrinth. Maxillary sinus could be noted at the level of lower orbital margin. In newborns, it formed a shallow(More)
A CT study was performed on 8 foetuses aged between 20 and 38 weeks. In foetuses at the 20th week the semicircular canals, the spiral canal of the cochlea and the initial (labyrinthine) part of the facial canal are visible. At week 24 the tympanic part of the facial canal is observed. In the 31st week the cochlea is divided into 2 compartments, and in the(More)
Three rare anatomical variations were found during study on hepatic arterial vascularisation in multidetector computed tomography angiography. In the first described variation the common hepatic artery (CHA) arises from the celiac trunk (CTr) and supplies right hepatic lobe. The left lobe of the liver is supplied by aberrant left hepatic artery originating(More)
In 8 serially sectioned human embryos the spinal accessory nucleus was traced. It was found that the spinal nucleus of the accessory nerve extends as continuation of the medial part of the nucleus ambiguus in the cervical segments of the spinal cord to the 5th segment. The nucleus forms small group of cells lying dorsolaterally in the ventral horns. Fibers(More)
In embryos at stage 16 (37 days) the intramedullary roots of the spinal accessory nucleus ascend in the marginal layer of the spinal cord within one segment. These fibers form the intramedullary accessory fascicle of the XIth nerve. This fasciculus was observed in further developmental stages of investigated embryos.
