The results of a clinico-anatomic study of the auricular branch of the vagus nerve (ABVN) and Arnold's ear-cough reflex are presented. The frequency of the ear-cough reflex was found to be 2.3% (12 out of 514 patients). It was bilateral in 3 cases (0.6%). The reflex was elicited by palpation of the postero-inferior wall of the external acoustic meatus (EAM)(More)
OBJECT The vascularization pattern of the anatomy of the distal anterior cerebral artery (ACA) remains a subject of debate. The authors provide detailed information about the distal ACA and shed light on issues concerning it that have not previously been adequately discussed. METHODS Fifty adult human brains (100 hemispheres) were obtained during routine(More)
BACKGROUND Advances in microsurgical techniques made possible the removal of advanced jugular foramen (JF) lesions, which once had been accepted as unoperable. However, successful surgery requires detailed knowledge of the JF anatomy. METHODS Sixteen jugular foramina in eight formalin-preserved adult cadavers were scanned with axial and coronal high(More)
In the first stage of the current study, 14 fresh specimens from above-the-knee amputations were examined by magnetic resonance imaging arthrography. In the second part of the study, these amputation specimens and 38 embalmed knees from cadavers were dissected. The types of the joint and insertion of the biceps femoris tendon and the other structures were(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the primary stability of implants placed in conventional and osteotome sites and to evaluate the level of correlation between cutting torque measurements, resonance frequency analysis (RFA), and bone density. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight human femoral heads were scanned with computed tomography for bone density measurements as(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine and to standardize the certain anatomical relations, and the precise size, course, and location of the infraorbital foramen, canal, and groove for facilitating surgical and invasive procedures. STUDY DESIGN This anatomical study consisted of two main steps, namely, the examination of skulls and the cephalometric analysis of the(More)
We aim to evaluate the mechanisms responsible for complications during trigeminal rhizotomy via foramen ovale puncture. Ten dry skulls and 10 skull-base specimens were investigated in the present study. In cadaveric skull-base specimens, the anatomical relationships between the foramen ovale, mandibular nerve and Gasserian ganglion and the surrounding(More)
The anatomy of the nasolacrimal duct (NLD) in relation with the lateral nasal wall was studied in 15 half-heads of human adult cadavers by serial photographs of the dissection of the lateral nasal wall. The aim of the study was to determine the intranasal anatomical relationships of the NLD with the lateral nasal wall for surgical reference during(More)
BACKGROUND Obturator nerve block is one of the most technically challenging regional anesthesia techniques. Recently, the characteristics of the nerve have been described using ultrasound. However, clinical application of proximal ultrasound-guided obturator nerve block on patients has not been reported. In this study, we used ultrasound to describe the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the differences between manual and cephalometric measurements on different sections of the human skull, which were obtained using computer-assisted three-dimensional (3D) analysis and conventional two-dimensional (2D) techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS Measurements were carried out on 13 dry human skulls, then 2D cephalograms and 3D(More)
