The anatomical relationships of the greater occipital nerve (GON) to the semispinalis capitis muscle (SCM) and the trapezius muscle aponeurosis (TMA) were examined to identify topographic landmarks for use in anesthetic blockade of the GON in occipital neuralgia. The course and the diameter of the GON were studied in 40 cadavers (29 females, 11 males), and(More)
Muscle strain injuries are common in sports, and a high incidence is reported for the hamstring muscles, especially in the proximal region, where the long head of the biceps femoris muscle is most frequently affected. To look for some architectural peculiarities, which would make this muscle vulnerable, 101 legs of embalmed human cadavers were dissected and(More)
In order to understand the role of the GLUTEUS MEDIUS muscle (GM) in hip joint osteoarthritis, the objective of this study was to analyze the correlation between morphometric data of GM samples with osteoarthritis scores of ipsilateral and contralateral hips in 41 patients. GM samples obtained during unilateral hip replacement surgery were used to evaluate(More)
The effects of two methods of electrical stimulation on the capillary density in skeletal muscle was studied. Twenty-two male physical education students randomly divided into two groups participated in the experiment. Groups I and II were subjected to the procedure of electrical stimulation of m. triceps surae daily for a period of 21 days. Group I was(More)
