OBJECTIVE Aim of this study was to determine the distance between Henle's spine (HS) on the temporal bone to the clinically important bony landmarks on the dry skulls that will act as a guide in various surgical procedures on skull base. Distances from the head of malleus (HOM) to surgically relevant landmarks were also studied on CT images. MATERIALS AND(More)
Worthiness of any scientific journal is measured by the quality of the articles published in it. The Impact factor (IF) is one popular tool which analyses the quality of journal in terms of citations received by its published articles. It is usually assumed that journals with high IF carry meaningful, prominent, and quality research. Since IF does not(More)
Anatomical variations are typically more common in the extensor compartment of the forearm, but uncommon in the flexor compartment. The presence of such anatomical anomalies is not usually noticed until the normal functions of an individual become hindered, or when these anomalies become a surgical problem. During routine dissection curriculum, we(More)
The mangroves of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands (ANI) are recognized as the best in the country in terms of density and growth. However, considerable disparities still exist in the species composition and classification of mangrove species in the ANI. Further, taxonomical identity and occurrence of certain mangrove species in the ANI remain imprecise.(More)
Coral reefs are considered one of the most diverse, productive and sensitive ecosystems among the various ecosystems existing today. They are usually found in clear waters and often amenable to optical remote sensing. But the submerged and heterogeneous coral reef habitats, the intervening atmospheric path radiance, the contribution of water surface and the(More)

The superior gluteal nerve (SGN) arises from the sacral plexus and enters the gluteal region above the piriformis where it divides into superior and an inferior branches. Former ends in the gluteus medius and occasionally gluteus minimus whereas latter supplies gluteus medius and minimus and ends in tensor fascia latae. Variations, relations, branching(More)
Chorda tymapni, branch of facial nerve arising from its vertical segment is at risk throughout its course during middle ear and mastoid surgeries. We observed an unusual course of the nerve during tympanoplasty. Course of nerve was carefully observed and compared with previous studies. This is the first case to best of our knowledge describing such an(More)
