BACKGROUND PRF treatment has recently been described as minimally neurodestructive alternative to radiofrequency heat lesions. Patients with some pain syndromes in whom the pain could not be controlled by alternative techniques may be treated using PRF. In the present study, our main goal was to evaluate and compare the ultrastructure of peripheral nerve(More)
BACKGROUND Several authors have defined a variety of so-called safe zones for deltoid-splitting incisions. The first aim of the present study was to investigate the distance of the axillary nerve from the acromion and its relation to arm length. The second aim was to identify a safe area for the axillary nerve during surgical dissection of the deltoid(More)
BACKGROUND The precentral gyrus (PG) is the primary motor area and is one of the most eloquent brain regions of neurosurgical interest. Although the arterial supply to the PG is generally known, contributions from different arterial branches such as the anterior cerebral artery (ACA), posterior cerebral artery (PCA), and middle cerebral artery (MCA) have(More)
We examined the anatomical structure of a ligament (ligamentum meniscofibulare) between apex fibulae and lateral meniscus by macroscopic and microscopic dissection and transillumination method in 50 knees of 25 cadavers (5 were fresh). We analyzed the function of this ligament, which runs between the head of the fibulae and lateral meniscus. The existence(More)
The vertebral artery, cervical spinal nerves, spinal nerve roots, and the bony and ligamentous tissue related to the cervical vertebrae are structures whose anatomy determines the path of a surgical approach. Defining the anatomy and, in particular, determining the precise location of vulnerable structures at the intervertebral foramen and the uncovertebral(More)
AIM Surgical approaches to Meckel's cave (MC) are often technically difficult and sometimes associated with postoperative morbidity. The relationship of surgical landmarks to relevant anatomy is important. Therefore, we attempted to delineate quantitatively their anatomy and the relationships between MC and surrounding structures. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
PURPOSE The surgical anatomy of the dorsal branch of the ulnar nerve and artery on the dorsal aspect of the hand is important in design of neurocutaneous flaps for reconstructive surgery and serves as a donor site for nerve grafts. In this study, the course, location, and diameter of the dorsal branches of the ulnar nerve and artery were studied from(More)
STUDY DESIGN Measurements of the length of pediculocorporeal screw trajectory were performed on bony sacra. Outer interforaminal distances of the first sacral vertebra were measured on bony sacra and anteroposterior sacral radiographs. OBJECTIVES To demonstrate the correlation of the length of pediculocorporeal screw trajectory of the first sacral(More)
There are no detailed anatomic studies focusing on the posterior iliac crest although it frequently is used for posterior stabilization of unstable pelvic fractures. Anatomic dissections were done to evaluate the size of the extraarticular region of the posterior iliac crest and its relationship to the lumbosacral lamina and to show on cadavers the level of(More)
The authors investigated the reliability of the safe area, which previously was defined to prevent injury to the superior gluteal nerve during the lateral approach to the hip, and its relation to body height. The distance between the point of entry of the superior gluteal nerve into the gluteus medius muscle and the greater trochanter, in the regions which(More)
