The dissection of 37 cadavers has shown that in only a third of cases, the sural nerve comes from the communication between the medial cutaneous nerve, derived from the tibial nerve, and the communicating branch of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the leg which comes from the lateral popliteal nerve. The communication is most often at the junction between the(More)
On the basis of 150 dissections the authors show that, on the back of the hand, the tendinous formations ensuring the extension of the fingers can be arranged in four groups of a least two tendons for each finger, excepting the thumb. In the little finger the group comprises a constant tendon, the extensor proper, and two variables, the common extensor and(More)

The C2-C3 intervertebral joint must be regarded as a transitional area situated between the upper cervical spine where most rotation of the neck and little flexion and extension occur and the lower cervical spaces where chiefly motion in the sagittal plane and also somewhat rotation take place. Under normal circumstances the range of flexion-extension(More)
For many authors, the insertion of the long head of the biceps brachii muscle is exclusively or mainly located on the supraglenoid tubercle. The aim of this work was to study the insertion of the long head of the biceps brachii at macroscopic and microscopic examinations. 31 shoulders of macerated cadavers of both sex (age range: 52-92 years) were dissected(More)
The rich sensory innervation of the ankle and foot is manifest through the numerous communicating branches linking the neural trunks, particularly the superficial peroneal and sural nerves on the anterolateral aspect of the hindfoot. The 35 communicating branches seen in 55 dissections (58%) were proximal in half of the cases, lying in the malleolar and(More)
We compared the long-term function of subscapularis after the Latarjet procedure using two surgical approaches. We treated 102 patients (106 shoulders) with a mean age of 26.8 years (15 to 51) with involuntary unidirectional recurrent instability. The operation was carried out through an L-shaped incision with trans-section of the upper two-thirds of the(More)
The purpose of the present work was to contribute to the knowledge of the subcutaneous innervation of the heel. The small branches arising from both tibial and sural nerves below the ankle joint were studied by means of a dissecting microscope; this study was combined with a histological examination of the nerve endings. In spite of many individual(More)
By means of dynamic roentgenographic study (5 to 7 X-rays) of the cervical spine in sagittal plane, the authors were able to define: amplitudes of each intervertebral joints. C4, C5 and C6 are the more mobile levels, position of instant centers of rotation for each intervertebral joint in healthy and pathologic individuals. This method allows a kinematic(More)
The authors studied the stability of the ulnar head by dissections of the radio-ulnar joint and experimental ligamentous removals in 150 specimens. They emphasize the importance of the tendon of the extensor carpi ulnaris and medial collateral ligament tightened by Kuhlmann's sling which firmly apply the ulnar head against the anterior edge of the sigmoid(More)
