Variations of the triceps brachii muscle are apparently rare. We report an additional attachment site of the medial head of the triceps brachii found on the left side of a male cadaver. This head originated from the posterior aspect of the surgical neck of the humerus. Clinicians diagnosing or treating patients with weakness or pain of the posterior arm(More)
Although surgical procedures are often performed over the posterior head and neck, surgical landmarks for avoiding the cutaneous nerves in this region are surprisingly lacking in the literature. Twelve adult cadaveric specimens underwent dissection of the cutaneous nerves overlying the posterior head and neck, and mensuration was made between these(More)
OBJECT There are scant data regarding the anterior interosseous nerve (AIN) in the neurosurgical literature. In the current study the authors attempt to provide easily identifiable superficial osseous landmarks for the identification of the AIN. METHODS The AIN in 20 upper extremities obtained in adult cadaveric specimens was dissected and quantified.(More)
The basilar venous plexus is the anteromedian venous channel of the posterior cranial fossa that has many conflicting and brief descriptions in the extant literature. To our knowledge, no single study has been performed that analyzed this venous structure in detail. The aim of the current study was to elucidate further the anatomy of this structure of the(More)
There is scant information in the literature regarding the transverse genicular ligament. In order to elucidate further the anatomy and controversial function of this structure, we dissected 28 cadavers. This ligament was identified in 55% of knee joints. Morphometrically, we found a mean length and width of this ligament of 35.4 and 2.5 mm, respectively.(More)
An anatomical study of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint and its supporting ligaments was performed using both macroscopic and microscopic methods. The project used 63 cadaver shoulders of unknown ages. Fifty-three joints were used for macroscopic and 10 for microscopic study. The data consisted of micrometer measurements of the dimensions of the extrinsic(More)
OBJECT Descriptions of the marginal venous sinus are lacking in the extant medical literature. The aim of this study was to characterize the anatomy of this intracranial venous sinus. METHODS The authors examined the marginal sinuses in 15 adult cadavers following the injection of latex into the intracranial venous system. The maximal vertical height of(More)
OBJECT There is insufficient information in the neurosurgical literature regarding the long thoracic nerve (LTN). Many neurosurgical procedures necessitate a thorough understanding of this nerve's anatomy, for example, brachial plexus exploration/repair, passes for ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement, pleural placement of a ventriculopleural shunt, and(More)
With recent laparoscopic advancements in retroperitoneal and thoracic surgical procedures, familiarity with major lymphatic structures, such as including the cisterna chyli (CC) and thoracic duct (TD), has proven beneficial in avoiding misdiagnosis and iatrogenic intraoperative injury. In this light, the aim of our study was to explore and delineate the(More)
A venous anastomotic network is occasionally found at the base of the brain, which closely resembles the vicinal arterial circle of Willis. When present, this venous polygon is composed of the anterior cerebral and communicating veins, the basal vein of Rosenthal and the posterior communicating and lateral mesencephalic veins. We propose that this(More)
