The segment V1 of the arteria vertebralis (pathway from its origin from the a. subclavia to the entry into the respective foramen processus transversi) has a special significance in vascular surgery. Contrary to indications in the literature, we found 47.15% of the specimens to have a contorted course in this segment. The tortuosities carried by the(More)
The surgical anatomy of interest in the posterior interosseous nerve syndrome was studied to shed light on the ramifying pattern of the radial nerve, the number of its muscular branches and their branching levels, and to pinpoint the location of the fibrous bands that may cause radial nerve entrapment. The fibrous arch of the supinator muscle (arcade of(More)
The posterior portion of the ulnar collateral ligament, which arises from the posterior surface of the medial epicondyle, is taut in maximal flexion. The anterior portion, which takes its origin from the anterior and inferior surfaces of the epicondyle, contains three functional fibre bundles. One of these is taut in maximal extension, another in(More)

The areas of the femoral origin of the cruciate ligaments have approximately the shape of sectors of ellipses, the one for the anterior ligament on the lateral condyle posteroproximally and the one for the posterior ligament on the medial condyle distally. By means of a new technique of dissection, combined with the use of X-rays, the change in distance(More)
The Taguchi method is a statistical approach to overcome the limitation of the factorial and fractional factorial experiments by simplifying and standardizing the fractional factorial design. The objective of the current study is to illustrate the procedures and strengths of the Taguchi method in biomechanical analysis by using a case study of a cervical(More)
The capsular ligaments of the human hip joint were submitted to exact morphological analysis, and they proved to be multiple and numerous. We have described various ligamentous systems and their interconnections, and have suggested new terminologies and systematics. The ligaments were subjected to functional analysis by means of measuring strips to(More)
A traditional method in capturing of human motion is using the cameras. The camera method, although widely used, has it own limitations. This paper presents a different way of capturing the human motion. The method involved utilizing electrogoniometer (biometrics, UK) to obtain the joint angles throughout the motion and by using dual Euler angles and dual(More)
The difference between maximal and minimal distance covered (the distance between the trapezium ridge and hamate hook; moment exerted on structures: 1 Nm) by an intact flexor retinaculum (FR; minimum, 3.3 +/- 0.1 cm; maximum, 3.7 +/- 0.2 cm) and the increase in the maximal distance on carpal tunnel release (CTR; increase, 1.6 +/- 0.2 mm) were significant.(More)
The aim of this study was to establish whether or not the axes of cervical spine movement in the sagittal plane are constant (an impression conveyed by the literature). Based on 60 functional radiographs (of which 24 showed degenerative discopathy or atlas subluxations), the axes of seven motor segments (C1-D1) were determined geometrically. The axes of the(More)
Pig cruciate ligaments were dissected and examined radiologically to evaluate their function. The variations in distance between the origin and insertion of the fibre bundles were measured in different joint positions; the maximal decrease in distance amounted to 50% in the anterior (ACL) and 30% in the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). The ACL consists of(More)
