Recent advances in imaging techniques and understanding of differences in the molecular biology of adipose tissue has rendered classical anatomy obsolete, requiring a new classification of the topography of adipose tissue. Adipose tissue is one of the largest body compartments, yet a classification that defines specific adipose tissue depots based on their(More)
A total of 30 adult abdominal aorta specimens dissected from cadavers was used in our study. The location of the ostium of the superior mesenteric a. relative to the ostium of the celiac trunk was identified on the aortic wall. Following this, the locations of the ostia of the renal aa. on the internal wall of the abdominal aorta were examined relative to(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)
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 Functional endoscopic sinus surgery has become popularized during the last decade all over the world. Knowledge about the intricate anatomy of the nasal cavity, the ethmoid labyrinth, and related structures is of vital importance for the endoscopic sinus surgeon to avoid probable complications. This study was undertaken to provide a set of(More)
Two 21-year-old men were treated for congenital diverticulum at the bulbous portion of the anterior urethra. One of the diverticula contained a stone. Acquired anterior urethral diverticulum with ventral displacement of the penile shaft following repair of hypospadias was treated in a 21-year-old man. Correction of the defect involved ventral paramedian(More)
Two kinds of accessory muscle bundles arising from the long head of the biceps femoris muscle were encountered in a 20-year-old Turkish female cadaver during routine dissections. The one occurred on both sides, each arising from the lower portion of the long head of the muscle and passed deep to the fascia of the popliteal fossa to be inserted into the(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)
In standard textbooks of anatomy it is generally accepted that the fibrous ring of the mitral valve lies in a single plane throughout its entire circumference. Some authors have stated otherwise, but there are no morphometric studies. 30 formalin-fixed hearts were sectioned to reveal the shape of the fibrous ring of the mitral valve and studied by(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)
