The present study attempts to determine the cutaneous pattern of distribution of the sural nerve on the dorsum of the foot to note the predominant pattern present and whether there was any association between the innervation pattern and sex or side. A total of 260 Indian feet (78 adult feet: 60 male, 18 female; 52 fetal feet: 20 male, 32 female) were(More)
The size and shape of the adult corpus callosum may vary with gender and age. There is, however, little data on the morphology of the corpus callosum in the Indian population. The purpose of this study was to measure the size of the corpus callosum in normal adult Indian males and females, and to identify gender- and age-related differences. The size of the(More)
In an adult male cadaver, the flexor digiti minimi brevis, a muscle of the hypothenar eminence, was found to arise from the superficial transverse septum (between the superficially placed flexor carpi ulnaris, palmaris longus, and flexor carpi radialis muscles, and the deeply placed flexor digitorum superficialis muscle) in the distal fourth of the flexor(More)
The value of the thumb has been described as being almost equal to the rest of the fingers combined (Decker and du Plessis, eds. 1986, Lee McGregor's synopsis of surgical anatomy. 12th ed. p 496). Normal hand function is dependent upon the integrity of both the sensory and motor innervation of the thumb. A thorough knowledge of normal and anomalous sensory(More)
Ultrastructural study of choroid plexus of normal and kaolin induced hydrocephalic guineapigs showed clusters of cilia arising from the apical part of some of the epithelial cells. Some of these cells had typical 9 + 2 cilia, while most of the control and the hydrocephalic groups showed 9 + 0 type of cilia. These atypical (9 + 0 type) cilia of choroidal(More)
The human heart is a nonlinear system because the heart rhythm is modulated by the Autonomic nervous system (ANS). The modulation of the heart rate about its mean value is called Heart rate variability (HRV). Nonlinear analysis of HRV is helpful to assess the cardiac health noninvasivly. The autonomic dysfunction also causes cardiac malfunction. The effect(More)
Triplication of the lesser occipital nerve (LON) was observed bilaterally in an adult male cadaver during routine prosection of the posterior triangle. The three LONs were studied to determine the clinical importance of this variation. The origin of one LON was from a nerve to the trapezius that had a common origin with the trunk of the supraclavicular(More)
Fifteen young guineapigs were made hydrocephalic by intracisternal injection of kaolin and 16 guineapigs were used as control. Volume, number and surface areas of both the outer and inner membranes of the mitochondria of the choroidal ependyma of these animals were studied, using a coherent multipurpose test system. Volume, number and surface area of the(More)
