An unusual variation of the iliac veins was detected by computed tomography (CT) angiography in a 35-year-old man. In coronal CT reconstructions, it was shown that the right internal iliac vein of this patient crossed to the left side and drained to the left common iliac vein. This variation is important in retroperitoneal, laparoscopic and orthopedic(More)
The distal attachments of the extensor hallucis longus (EHL) tendons in 47 amputated legs and in eight cadavers were examined. The EHL had two tendons in 34 of the amputated legs and bilaterally in five cadavers. The lateral tendon was inserted to the middle of the dorsal aspect of the base of the distal phalanx of the hallux and the medial tendon to the(More)
Duplication of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is the most common anomaly to affect the vena cava. Variations in the IVC are diagnosed in routine dissection studies, in retroperitoneal surgeries, or in computerised tomography (CT) sections ordered for various reasons. In this paper we present two cases of a double IVC together with the CT findings. The(More)
Five cases are described where the first web space of the hand received arteries only from the superficial palmar arch. None of these branches was large enough to deserve the name “princeps pollicis artery”. These variations must be taken into account during surgical dissections of the hand. Cinq cas d'artères de la première commissure de la main prenant(More)
We report here an accessory fissure in the right lung. Accessory fissures are described as clefts of various depths lined by two layers of visceral pleura. Anomalies of location of the lungs may be produced by the accessory fissures. In our case, an unusual accessory fissure in the right lung was found in a 50 years old male cadaver. The accessory fissure(More)
Radiofrequency reduction has become one of the most popular methods in the treatment of inferior nasal concha hypertrophy. During surgical treatment of inferior nasal concha hypertrophy, it is important to cause minimal injury to the overlying ciliated epithelium, since if the ciliated structure of this epithelium is permanently disrupted, it is hard to(More)
Anomalies of digastric muscle are not very rare. During a routine dissection, it was found on a cadaver that the digastric muscles on both sides had no fibrous slings. It was also observed that the two intermediate tendons crossed over the stylohyoid muscles. Such anomalies should be considered during the evaluation of the floor of the mouth after CT(More)
In this study, the myelinated axons of parts of the corpus callosums of young and old rats were examined under the electron microscope and a grading system was performed for quantitating the ultrastructural pathological changes of these axons. Except the old splenium group, the only ultrastructural pathological change, observed in the myelinated axons was(More)
OBJECTIVE There is only limited data related to the subungual glomus body. We therefore studied the structure of this organ, aiming to obtain further evidence. Additionally, we encountered undefined receptor like structures in close association with these glomus cells, named them as lamellated bodies and examined both of the structures at light and electron(More)
