BACKGROUND Frontal sinuses are 2 irregular cavities, placed between 2 lamina of frontal bone. Expansion continues during childhood and reaches full size after puberty. Persistent metopic suture is one of the factors that are related to abnormal frontal sinus development. In this study, we want to discuss about the coexistence of persistent metopic suture(More)
Complex fractures of the olecranon have always been a difficult condition for treatment. Successful reconstruction depends on restoration of the anatomic contributors to stability. The purpose of this study was to define the proximal ulna anatomy in detail with respect to fracture fixation and arthroscopy. In 50 normal adult ulnae (26 left, 24 right);(More)
Recent theories about migraine pathogenesis have emphatized the role of the trigeminal system in the pathogenesis of migraine attacks. The local vasodilatation of intracranial extracerebral blood vessels and the consequent stimulation of surrounding trigeminal sensory nerve pain pathways are proposed to be the key mechanisms underlying the generation of(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to test our hypothesis that a transverse oblique fascicular anteromedial capsulofemoral band partially subjacent to the deep medial collateral ligament (MCL) is more prominent in knees with medial meniscal extrusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed all knee MRI examinations from a 6-month period(More)
BACKGROUND The first aim of this study was the quantification of nerve fibres found in terminal branches of facial nerve and the second aim was the ultrastructural analysis of these terminal branches in order to observe their ultrastructural differences, if present. In the examination of literature; we could not find any studies related to this subject. (More)
Introduction: Only 20-30% of umbilical vein blood flows through ductus venosus. Remaining blood is distributed mainly to left lobe of the liver and enters the inferior vena cava through hepatic veins. Aim The aim of this study was to describe distribution of intrahepatic branches of UV basing on anatomical dissection and ultrasound 3D HD-Flow examination,(More)
NEUROANATOMY is a journal in English, and publishes original research articles dealing with neuroanatomical sciences in animals (vertebrates and invertabrates) and humans. Papers in any of the following fields will be considered: molecular, cellular, histological and gross anatomical studies on normal and/or abnormal experimental animals and humans.(More)
During the routine gross anatomical dissection of the right inguinal region of a 45-year-old male cadaver, a variation was observed both in the inferior epigastric artery and the inferior epigastric vein. In this case, the right inferior epigastric artery originated from the femoral artery 13 mm inferior to the inguinal ligament. Additionally, in this(More)
Variations on the neuromuscular structures of the upper limb reflect the complex development of that region. Many of them may be important during surgical and/or diagnostic procedures; however, some of them are of academic interest. Here we report a case of six neuromuscular variations in a single upper limb. During routine educational dissection for the(More)
Cor triatriatum sinister is a rare condition caused by a membrane within the left atrium that separates the pulmonary veins from the mitral valve. While the condition is usually diagnosed in childhood, a rare presentation during adulthood is observed when the membrane is incomplete. We report two cases of incomplete cor triatriatum sinister diagnosed(More)
