Objective. Quantify the presence of the fibularis quartus muscle and correlate it with the individual's sex and concomitant presence of the fibularis tertius muscle. Materials and Methods. We evaluated 211 magnetic resonance examinations (43.13% men and 56.87% women) on the ankle and hindfoot, produced between 2009 and 2011. Results. The fourth fibularis(More)
Received on: Oct 6, 2011 – Accepted on: Jan 12, 2012 ABSTRACT Objective: To verify the prevalence of the accessory soleus muscle in humans and according to gender. Methods: A total of 154 magnetic resonance images of the ankle were assessed in T1 weighted sagittal, coronal and axial planes. Results: An incidence of 11.6% of accessory soleus muscle in humans(More)
The limitations on the availability of organs for transplantation have aroused interest in research on xenotransplantation of whole organs or certain parts of them. Thus, studies that confirm or reject similarities between the organs of different animals have started to have important clinical applications. In the present study, we investigated the(More)
Although the septomarginal trabecula is a well-known anatomical structure, there continue to be different ways of studying it. In this study, we dissected the muscle bundles that form it, and this has enabled us to present a new classification based on the origin, path, and termination of these bundles. This study was conducted on 99 hearts removed from the(More)
The present study was motivated by the importance of the thyroid veins in surgery in the anterolateral cervical region, particularly in tracheostomies, the need for information on modern diagnostic imaging techniques and the lack of specific publications on the subject. The research was performed on 30 adult human specimens by means of dissection and(More)
The motive for this research was the use of the muscles of the scapular region in transposition, transplantation and reparative surgery and the need for more detailed knowledge of the blood supply to these muscles. In addition, the subscapular arterial tree may be used as a source of microvascular grafts to replace damaged or diseased portions of arteries,(More)
UNLABELLED The temporal muscle is greatly used for forming myofascial flaps and transposition in cases of reconstructive and reparative plastic surgery of the face and neck. Despite this important application, lack of success has been reported, probably because of lack of knowledge of the anatomical characteristics of this muscle, such as variations in its(More)
The interest in experimental use of coronary arteries of swine as a stage towards their application in human hearts justifies the need for obtaining a detailed anatomical understanding of those arteries, particularly to evaluate similarities and differences. However, we did not find any citations about anatomical indicators of coronary dominance among swine(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the variations in the angle basal sphenoid skulls of adult humans and their relationship to sex, age, ethnicity and cranial index. METHODS The angles were measured in 160 skulls belonging to the Museum of the Universidade Federal de São Paulo Department of Morphology. We use two flexible rules and a goniometer, having as reference(More)
Our aim in this study was to examine the right septomarginal trabecula of goats regarding the frequency, origin course of the septal and free component, attachment to the papillaris magnus muscle and size . The material used consisted in 32 hearts from non-pedigree goats of both sexes, preserved in 10% formalin. The right septomarginal trabecula was present(More)
