An abnormal muscle slip was encountered during routine dissection studies of a male cadaver. According to its origin, attachment and innervation, the abnormal slip was identified a chondroepitrochlearis muscle. Arterial and nervous supply were from the lateral thoracic artery and the medial pectoral nerve, respectively. Furthermore, no axillary arch muscle(More)
This study aimed to elucidate locomotor activity changes in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) induced Parkinson's disease (PD) and investigate the possible beneficial effects of melatonin on altered levels of locomotor activity, cyclooxygenase (COX), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB), nitrate/nitrite and apoptosis. Male Wistar rats were(More)
A high origin of the radial artery accompanied by muscular and neural abnormalities (three-headed biceps brachii, absence of the palmaris longus muscle, and communication between median and musculocutaneous nerves) were encountered during the dissection of a 25-year-old male cadaver. Co-existence of these variations has not, to our knowledge, been reported(More)
Melatonin stimulates peripheral nerve regeneration. However, the precise effect of Melatonin on nerve repair in dark period have not been clarified. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of melatonin on sciatic nerve injury after melatonin was given to rats in the morning or evening by means of combined analysis. This is the first study(More)
A bilateral gastrocnemius tertius muscle and a unilateral accessory soleus muscle were encountered during the routine educational dissection studies. The right gastrocnemius tertius muscle consisted of one belly, but the left one of two bellies. On the left side, the superficial belly of the gastrocnemius tertius muscle had its origin from an area just(More)
Peripheral nerve trunks are well-vascularized structures where a well-developed collateral system may compensate for local vascular damage. Vasculitis in nerve has a predilection for epineurial vessels and causes to the peripheral neuropathy, which is a major clinical feature of primary and secondary systemic vasculitides. In the present study, the goal was(More)
Melatonin is known to reduce detrimental effects of free radicals by stimulating antioxidant enzymes; however, its role has not been studied in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced rat model of Parkinson's disease (PD). Therefore, we aimed to elucidate the effects of melatonin on motor activity and oxidative stress parameters in 6-OHDA-induced rat model of(More)
AIM Treatment of the craniofacial malformations is a primary goal of cranio-maxillo-facial surgeons. Surgical treatment of these malformations requires accurate data. Accuracy of measurement should be a priority of scientists to prevent statistical errors and therefore to promote the comparison of the results obtained from various research groups. In the(More)
OBJECTIVE Transpedicular spinal fixation has recently been the focus of increased attention in several institutions throughout the world, but its safety and efficacy are still important questions for orthopedic surgeons. Accurate screwing through the pedicle will avoid neurologic complications and increase the stability of the instrumentation. In this(More)
An abnormal abductor pollicis longus muscle was encountered bilaterally during the dissection of the upper limb of a 26-year-old male cadaver. In the left side, the abductor pollicis longus had seven tendon slips. The medial two inserted into the abductor pollicis brevis, the other five inserted into the base of the first metacarpal bone. In the right side(More)
