OBJECTIVES This study investigates the effect of scanning parameters on the accuracy of measurements from three-dimensional (3D), multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) mandible renderings. A broader range of acceptable parameters can increase the availability of computed tomographic (CT) studies for retrospective analysis. STUDY DESIGN Three human(More)
This study represents a first effort to characterize the growth and development of murine trisomy 16 neurons using single-cell neuron culture techniques. Murine trisomy 16 is a model for the human Down syndrome, or trisomy 21. Both show similar nervous system abnormalities including decreases in cerebellar size and in numbers of cerebellar neurons. Trisomy(More)
BACKGROUND We describe here a very rare congenital deformity that involves the splitting of the right upper limb with the superior limb articulating with the shoulder joint, and the inferior limb laterally attached to the chest wall. MATERIAL AND METHODS The child with this rare split limb was treated by transferring the inferior limb on an islanded(More)
This paper describes the anatomical variations observed in the head and neck in eight infants with the 18-trisomy syndrome that were dissected and studied in detail. Of the usual muscles of facial expression, occipitofrontalis and the auricular and nasal muscles were hypolastic in all eight bodies and each subject showed extensive fusion of the muscles(More)
The hyoid bone supports the important functions of swallowing and speech. At birth, the hyoid bone consists of a central body and pairs of right and left lesser and greater cornua. Fusion of the greater cornua with the body normally occurs in adulthood, but may not occur at all in some individuals. The aim of this study was to quantify hyoid bone fusion(More)
