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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE Articular penetration of K-wires is a possible complication of the modified tension band wiring technique. However, there is no clear information or evidence regarding the entry point or introduction angle for K-wires to avoid this complication. The aim of this experimental study was to evaluate the effect of varying K-wire insertion points and(More)
In this study we aimed to compare the findings of coronary dual-source computed tomography angiography of myocardial bridges with cadaveric dissections. Forty-one isolated, non-damaged fresh sheep hearts were used in this study. Myocardial bridges of the anterior interventricular branch of the left coronary artery were demonstrated and analyzed by a(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)
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)
