Human body preservation – old and new techniques
This review contains a brief historical review of the history of embalming, starting with ancient cultures such as the Egyptians and the lesser known Chinchorro culture, then going down the centuries and describing the anatomical techniques developed over the last two centuries. Expand
Anal Sphincter Complex
The anatomic and histologic findings highly correlate with the results of magnetic resonance imaging and endosonography as well as with the physiologic findings, which are of great clinical importance for the understanding of sphincter defects during vaginal delivery and for anorectal operations in the adult aswell as in the child.

The anterolateral ligament of the knee: A dissection study.
The anterolateral ligament (ALL) might be an important stabilizer in the knee and may play a significant role in preventing excessive internal tibial rotation and subluxation of the knee joint. Expand
Lateral arm flap: Analysis of its anatomy and modification using a vascularized fragment of the distal humerus
Use of the lateral arm flap with a humeral fragment for the treatment of combined soft tissue and bone defects when a single step surgical solution is indicated is indicated. Expand
The "enthesis organ" concept: why enthesopathies may not present as focal insertional disorders.
The concept of an enthesis organ is of general significance in understanding attachment sites and may explain the diverse pathologic changes, including synovitis, bursitis, and extracapsular changes, seen adjacent to tendon/ligament entheses in SpA. Expand
The legal and ethical framework governing Body Donation in EuropeA review of current practice and recommendations for good practice
Discussions at the inaugural meeting of a Trans-European Pedagogic Research Group for Anatomical Sciences highlighted the fact that there exist considerable variations in the legal and ethicalExpand
The intravesical ureter in children with vesicoureteral reflux: a morphological and immunohistochemical characterization.
Refluxing intravesical ureteral endings showed dysplasia, atrophy and architectural derangement of smooth muscle fibers, Consequently symmetrical contraction of the distal ureTERal smooth muscle coat creating the active valve mechanism to protect reflux is not achievable. Expand
The anatomy of the small saphenous vein: fascial and neural relations, saphenofemoral junction, and valves.
Two fascial points or regions can be described in the SSVs' course and its own saphenous fascia is demonstrated macroscopically in almost all cases, and the SPJ is highly individual where hitherto unclassified patterns in a remarkable number of veins are found. Expand
Extracellular matrix degradation and reduced nerve supply in refluxing ureteral endings.
Refluxing ureteral endings showed a pathologically increased matrix remodeling combined with deprivation of the intramural nerve supply as well as structural deficiencies of the smooth muscle wrap associated with a 3.8-fold increase of cellular matrix metalloproteinase 1 production and a significant increase of CD68+ macrophages.

Longitudinal and thickness measurement of the normal distal and intravesical ureter in human fetuses.
Data from this study can be used for a more accurate assessment of cases with abnormal lower urinary tract development and significant positive linear relationships exist between gestational week, and distal and intravesical ureteral wall thickness of the mesenchymal and smooth muscle growth to the length of the intravesicals ureters in fetuses and newborns.
