The variability of the arteries in the upper extremity is considerable. This case is a report of a trifurcation of the brachial artery that divided into radial, ulnar, and superior ulnar collateral arteries high in the arm; the length of the brachial artery was only 4.9 cm. Because the upper extremity is a frequent site of injury, various surgical and(More)
The posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) is normally a branch of the vertebral artery. In this rare case, the unilateral left vertebral artery continued its course as the left PICA, and an extremely small caliber left vertebral artery joined the righ vertebral artery to form the basilar artery. This rare feature of the PICA is demonstrated and its(More)
The common carotid artery (CCA) bifurcation is of clinical importance due to its vascular access site for intravascular intervention. Additionally, it is also one of the most common sites of atherosclerotic plaque formation. There are numerous studies on the diameters of CCA, internal carotid artery (ICA), and external carotid artery (ECA) in adults, but(More)
The increasing use of organs such as liver, lung, heart, pancreas, kidney and small intestine for transplantation purposes necessitates the development of optimum preservation techniques. The aim of our study was to investigate time-related morphological changes in alveoli during preservation of rat lungs in hypothermic Euro-Collins solution. Lungs were(More)
We present a case in which the branching pattern of the abdominal arteries contains multiple variations that to date have not been reported together. The anomalies encountered include an extremely long coeliac trunk, an inferior phrenic trunk (as one of the branches of the coeliac trunk) and an aberrant (replaced) right hepatic artery derived from the(More)
During the last century, many investigators reported on myocardial bridges in the adult human heart. In the present study, 39 human fetal hearts (the mean gestastional age was 30 weeks) were studied for myocardial bridging, and the results were correlated with adult data. Among the 39 (27 male and 12 female) fetal hearts studied, 26 bridges were observed on(More)
AIMS/OBJECTIVES It has been previously recognized that the anatomy of arterial bifurcations influences blood flow and has a significant role in the development of vascular disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the present study, we measured the average diameters of the internal carotid (ICA), anterior cerebral (ACA), and middle cerebral arteries (MCA) in(More)
The arterial supply of the long flexor tendon of the index and ring fingers were studied morphologically on 36 cadaver hands. Our studies, showed that the long flexor tendons were supplied by two main sources. Primarily by small arteries which ran in the vinculum longum and vinculum brevis and reached the dorsal surface of the tendon. Also by small(More)
Introduction: Suprascapular nerve entrapments in the scapular notch or under the inferior transverse (spinoglenoid) ligament are known, but compression in the supraspinatous fossa may also occur under the supraspinatus fascia. Our aim was to precise the anatomical features of the whole course of the nerve in the supraspinatous fossa. Material and methods:(More)
INTRODUCTION The anatomy of arterial bifurcations affects blood flow and has a significant role in the development of vascular disease. Therefore, it is important to know the structural characteristics of the Common Carotid Artery (CCA) and its branches for early onset of atherosclerosis in newborns. AIM The present study was conducted to evaluate the(More)
