Knowledge of morphology of human anterior cingulate and medial frontal cortex related to the knee of corpus callosum is important in the diagnostics and neurosurgical treatment. Neuroimaging studies did not provide a clear picture of this region, what is also caused by terminological inconsistencies. It is not always clear what is actually defined under the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Changes in the morphology and the size of the corpus callosum, are related to various pathological conditions. An analysis of these changes requires data about sexual dimorphism of the corpus callosum, which we tried to obtain in our study. We also investigated the method of digital morphometry and compared the obtained results with the(More)
Precuneus, a quadrangular gyms of the medial surface of the human parietal lobe, is bound by three primary brain sulci and by superior hemispheric border. Precise encephalometric data about precuneus are important in the studies of brain lateralization, sex dimorphism, and brain functions in general. In this study, total and visible (exstrasulcal) surface(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Studies of visible (extrasulcal) surface of the brain hemispheres are not feasible for measurements of the brain size, but are valuable for analysis and quantification of sexual dimorphism and/or asymmetries of the human brain. Morphological and morphometric investigations of the brain may contribute in genetic studies of the human nervous(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The heart has traditionally been considered as a static organ without capacity of regeneration after trauma. Currently, the more and more often asked question is whether the heart has any intrinsic capacities to regenerate myocytes after myocardial infarction. The aim of this study was to present the existence of the preserved muscle fibers(More)
INTRODUCTION Although Rudolf Virchow considered arteriosclerosis an inflammatory disease in his book Cellular Pathology publisched in 1858, the opinion that it was a degenerative arterial disease as a civilization disease prevailed. Nowadays, a great attention has been paid to the inflammatory process in the patogenesis of arteriosclerosis and particularly(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with implanted aortic coronary grafts have different survival time, which raises the question why the efficacy of graft implants is so poor. The aim of this study was to present the results of the analysis of morphological changes in the vein grafts taken after the death of patients who died after surgery in different time intervals, as(More)
