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)
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 purpose of this study was to determine the talar facet configuration of South Indian calcanei, measure the angle between the anterior and middle facet planes of these calcanei, and assess the relation between the above parameters and the degenerative changes in the subtalar joints. The angle between the anterior and middle talar facets was measured in(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)
To study the quantitative changes if any, in different components of the choroid plexus in association with hydrocephalus, young guineapigs were made hydrocephalic by intracisternal injection of kaolin (125 mg/ml). Choroid plexuses of these animals and controls were embedded in durcupan. Using morphometric methods volume and surface area of the choroidal(More)
With a view to study the morphological changes, if any, in the choroid plexus in association with hydrocephalus, obstructive hydrocephalus was created in 15 young guinea pigs. The choroid plexus of the control group (n = 16) showed high cuboidal or columnar epithelium. The mitochondria of the choroid plexus ependyma converged towards the apex. Varying(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)
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)
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)
