In the course of a routine dissection of the anterior region of the arm an accessory muscle was observed in the flexor aspect of the right arm of a 64-year-old male cadaver. This accessory muscle, which was considered to be the third head of the biceps brachii muscle originated from the inserting tendon of the deltoid muscle. The muscle gave rise to three(More)
OBJECTIVE Vagoglossopharyngeal and geniculate neuralgias are less frequently seen types of cranial neuralgias. Their causes and symptomatology are similar to those of trigeminal neuralgia; however, the complex anatomic relationship between the intermedius, vagal, and glossopharyngeal nerves leads to difficulties in the diagnosis and management of neuralgias(More)
Certain areas of the body contain structures that are difficult to envision in their proper spatial orientations and whose functions are complex and difficult to grasp. This is especially true in the head, where many structures are relatively small and inaccessible. To address this problem, we are designing Web-based programs that consist of high-resolution(More)
The knowledge of anatomy is essential for all health care professionals. However, it has become extremely difficult to find qualified instructors who can fit into an academic environment that stresses research funding and publications for promotion. In addition, dissection, which is the best way to learn anatomy, is expensive, labor intensive and time(More)
An accessory muscle and a muscular bundle were found and prepared in both forearms of a 55-year-old male cadaver. On the left side, the accessory muscle-originated from the medial aspect of the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) muscle, coursed downwards, crossed posterior to the tendon of ECRB, passed through the second chamber of the extensor(More)
