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 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)
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 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)
Hydroxypropyl cellulose/poly (vinyl pyrrolidone) (HPC/PVP) mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) filled with different amounts of H-ZSM-5 zeolite (0, 5, 10, and 15 wt.%) were prepared by solution casting method. The prepared membranes were crosslinked with glutaraldehyde and used for pervaporation (PV) dehydration of ethanol at different feed mixtures at 30°C. On(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)
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)
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)
