A variation of the brachial plexus characterized by the absence of the musculocutaneous nerve on both sides was observed during the dissection of a 72 year-old female cadaver. The long thoracic nerve included only the fibers from C5 and C6 on the left side. The musculocutaneous nerve was absent and two branches from the lateral cord innervated the(More)
OBJECTIVE The estimate frequency of anatomic variations in origin of the right coronary artery in a Turkish population. MATERIAL AND METHOD The angiographic data of 5253 consecutive adults patients undergoing coronary angiography were analysed retrospectively for the diagnosis of anomalous origin of the right coronary artery. RESULTS Among 5253 adults(More)
Several recent studies have found a relationship between midline cerebral malformations (cavum septi pellucidum, absence of the adhesio interthalamica) and schizophrenia. In this study, we investigated whether the adhesio interthalamica is more often absent in patients with schizophrenia than healthy cases and whether the absence of the adhesio(More)
Our aim was to assess the anatomic localization, dimensions and incidence of the transverse and meniscofemoral ligaments, which can show anatomic variations or be mistaken for some pathologic conditions. In 100 healthy subjects (52 female, 48 male) whose ages ranged from 12 to 84 years, sagittal and coronal magnetic resonance images of the knee were(More)
Knowledge of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis should be helpful in determining the normal position of the fibula in the incisural notch. The purpose of this study was to determine the anatomic characteristics of the fibular incisura of the tibia on MR imaging. One hundred fifty lower limbs (43 male, 32 female volunteers) were examined with MRI. The(More)
In this study a total of 175 coronal CT scans of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses have been investigated. A secondary middle concha was detected bilaterally in 12 (6.8%) out of 175 patients. In all cases, the ethmoidal infundibulum was placed anteroinferior to the lateral origin of the secondary middle concha. This structure did not obstruct the(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess the anatomic variations in the origin of the left circumflex coronary artery in a Turkish population. METHOD This study was carried out at the Sani Konukoklu Medical Center, Gaziantep, Turkey, during the period January 1999 through to May 2001. The angiographic data of 10,042 consecutive adult patients(More)
This study has been performed to demonstrate the type and frequency of the anatomical variations of the sacroiliac joint according to age, gender, Body Mass Index and childbirth, and the influence of the anatomical variants to the uniformity and width of the joint space. It was conducted on 400 consecutive patients without sacroiliac complaint who underwent(More)
A coronary artery fistula is a direct communication between a coronary artery and one of the cardiac chambers or vessels around the heart. The present study was undertaken to define the incidence, clinical findings and angiographic characteristics of congenital coronary artery fistula in Turkish adults who underwent diagnostic cardiac angiography. A(More)
In this study a total of 269 adult lower limb long bones were examined to determine the number and location of the nutrient foramina in the shafts of bones. The mean of foraminal index was 48.82 for femur, 33.17 for tibia, and 47.82 for fibula. The number of foramina noted were: two on the linea aspera in the middle third of the femur, one on the posterior(More)
