Anatomical landmarks for the localization of the greater palatine foramen – a study of 1200 head CTs, 150 dry skulls, systematic review of literature and meta‐analysis
TLDR
The GPF is most often located opposite the M3 in the majority of the world's populations, and the maxillary molars are the best landmarks for locating the GPF.
The Prevalence of Anatomical Variations of the Median Nerve in the Carpal Tunnel: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
An ulnar side approach to carpal tunnel release, with a careful layer by layer dissection, is recommended to avoid iatrogenic damage to the TMB.
Evidence of angiogenesis and microvascular regression in autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease kidneys: a corrosion cast study.
Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) accounts for about 10% of all cases of chronic renal failure requiring dialysis. The disease is characterized by proliferation of renal epithelial
The Non-Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve: a meta-analysis and clinical considerations
TLDR
The NRLN is a rare yet very clinically relevant structure for surgeons and is associated with increased risk of iatrogenic injury, most often leading to temporary or permanent vocal cord paralysis.
The surgical anatomy of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve in the inguinal region: a meta-analysis
TLDR
The LFCN and its variations are important to consider especially during inguinal hernia repair, abdominoplasty, and iliac bone grafting, and maintaining a distance of 3 cm or more from the ASIS when operating to prevent injury to the L FCN is suggested.
Surgical anatomy of the sciatic nerve: A meta‐analysis
TLDR
It is recommended that a thorough assessment of sciatic nerve variants needs to be considered when performing procedures in the pelvic and gluteal regions in order to reduce the risk of iatrogenic injury.
The role of vasculature in bone development, regeneration and proper systemic functioning
TLDR
The most recent data on the functions, molecular characteristics and significance of the bone blood vessels are reviewed, with a particular emphasis on the role of angiogenesis and blood vessel functioning in bone development and regeneration, as well as the consequences of its impairment in the course of different skeletal and systemic diseases.
Development of the Anatomical Quality Assurance (AQUA) Checklist: Guidelines for reporting original anatomical studies
TLDR
The aim was to develop a checklist of reporting items that should be addressed by authors of original anatomical studies and it is hoped the AQUA Checklist will improve the quality and reporting of anatomical studies.
