The motionless position and the movements of the human hyoïd bone are defined by angular and linear measures, with regard to the basis of the skull and the horizontal palatine level. It appears that the hyoïd mechanic, which is at best expressed during swallowing and speech articulation, is mainly dependent on styloid suspension, that allows sinusoïdal(More)

The authors relate the results of the examination of 172 human brachial plexuses from 89 leukoderma subjects native from the Parisian area. The origin of the plexus, with a participation of the fourth cervical nerve root in 41 p.c. of the plexuses, and its distribution, with three primary trunks in 90 p.c. of the plexuses were correctly described by classic(More)
