The Prevalence of Anatomical Variations of the Median Nerve in the Carpal Tunnel: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
An ulnar side approach to carpal tunnel release, with a careful layer by layer dissection, is recommended to avoid iatrogenic damage to the TMB.
The Non-Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve: a meta-analysis and clinical considerations
TLDR
The NRLN is a rare yet very clinically relevant structure for surgeons and is associated with increased risk of iatrogenic injury, most often leading to temporary or permanent vocal cord paralysis.
The Influence of Aging on the Regenerative Potential of Human Adipose Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells
TLDR
Compared to younger cells, aged hASCs had decreased proliferation rates, decreased chondrogenic and osteogenic potential, and increased senescent features, and a shift in favor of adipogenic differentiation with increased age was observed.
The surgical anatomy of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve in the inguinal region: a meta-analysis
TLDR
The LFCN and its variations are important to consider especially during inguinal hernia repair, abdominoplasty, and iliac bone grafting, and maintaining a distance of 3 cm or more from the ASIS when operating to prevent injury to the L FCN is suggested.
Surgical anatomy of the sciatic nerve: A meta‐analysis
TLDR
It is recommended that a thorough assessment of sciatic nerve variants needs to be considered when performing procedures in the pelvic and gluteal regions in order to reduce the risk of iatrogenic injury.
Development of the Anatomical Quality Assurance (AQUA) Checklist: Guidelines for reporting original anatomical studies
TLDR
The aim was to develop a checklist of reporting items that should be addressed by authors of original anatomical studies and it is hoped the AQUA Checklist will improve the quality and reporting of anatomical studies.
Metformin Decreases Reactive Oxygen Species, Enhances Osteogenic Properties of Adipose-Derived Multipotent Mesenchymal Stem Cells In Vitro, and Increases Bone Density In Vivo
TLDR
The result stands as a valuable source of data regarding the in vivo influence of metformin on ASCs and bone density and supports a role for met formin in regenerative medicine.
