The sacroiliac (SI) joint is the point of articulation between the sacrum and the innominate bone of the pelvis. The anterior portion is synovial, and the posterosuperior portion is a typical syndesmosis. The SI joint may be affected by inflammatory or degenerative changes which include narrowing, minor sclerosis and erosion. Alterations in the anatomy of(More)
The width of the articular space of the lateral atlantoaxial joint was measured to evaluate normal range values and possible variations according to age and sex. The study was based on X-rays of the lateral atlantoaxial joint of 52 females (age range: 18-82 ys) and 50 males (age range: 20-82 ys). The radiograms were taken using a semiautomatic computerized(More)
The width of the articular space of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint was investigated to evaluate normal range values and any possible variations in relation to age and sex. Radiographs of the AC joints of 72 males and 28 female (age range: 38-83 yrs) were studied. The articular space width of the AC joint was measured using a semiautomatic computerized(More)
The Symphysis Pubis (SP) joint was investigated by X-ray in 96 adults without any history of disease of the joints. We evaluated the width of this joint by measuring the distance between the two articular surface at three points. We calculated the mean for the three interpubic distances and carried out statistical analysis so as to evaluate if there is a(More)
Considering the factors limiting flexo-extension movements of the elbow, particular importance has been given to the possible existing contact between its articular ends in the final stage of the movement. However, this factor has different importance according to the angle formed by the ulnar and humeral diaphysis with their respective epiphysis. Some(More)
A macroscopic study of the lumbar regions of 4 adult bodies and of 4 foetuses has been made by the authors to specify the inferior insertion of the deep muscles of the back. These observations have demonstrated that the longissimus dorsi, and the ilio-costalis muscles are separated by a sagittal aponeurosis. The aponeurosis is a ventral reflection of the(More)
Inhibitory non-adrenergic non-cholinergic efferent nerves are activated in the stomach of the rabbit by electrical vagal stimulation (1). Aim of the present research is to ascertain, in the rabbit stomach, by means of quinacrine fluorescence technique (6) the presence of quinacrine-positive cells and nerve fibers which are thought to be non-adrenergic(More)
Electrical vagal nerve stimulation (10-20 V, 0.2-5 msec, 1-86 Hz) was carried out at cervical level in nembutal-urethane anestetized rabbits. The aim of the research was to selectively activate (0.2 msec) "low" excitatory, and (5 msec) "high" inhibitory efferent vagal nerve fibers supplying the stomach. In the intact stomach an increasing motor effect was(More)
