A heretofore unreported spine, which protrudes into the pituitary fossa, has been described and recorded. Complete and incomplete 'sella bridges', their angle formations with the planes of the head, dimensions and sutures have been detailed and their origin postulated. The development and formation of the carotico-clinoid foramina have been exhibited and(More)
Length, diameter and anastomoses of the nervus vagus and its ganglion inferius were measured 44 halved heads. On the average, 8.65 fiber bundles of the vagus nerve leave the retro-olivary area. In the area of the jugular foramen is the near superior ganglion of the 10th cranial nerve. In this area were found 1.48 (mean value) anastomoses with the 9th(More)
An anatomical study was performed in order to obtain help for orientation regarding the retrosigmoid approach and its osteoclastic craniotomy. The insertions of the sternocleidomastoid, the splenius capitis, the longissimus capitis and the obliquus capitis superior muscles were measured. The relationships of the insertions to different landmarks were also(More)
Seventy-one Caucasian orbits (36 right, 35 left) were studied by dissection. The diameter of the ophthalmic a. (2 mm from the origin) was 1.54 ± 0.04 mm (male) and 1.31 ± 0.05 mm (female). In individual cases, there were no significant differences in vessel diameter between the right and left sides but, differences in vessel diameter between males and(More)
Surgically acquired foreign bodies are well known but not widely reported. Only seven articles pertaining to this subject were found in the current neurosurgical literature. Are they a denied neurosurgical reality? In this report with a concededly provoking title, the authors elucidate clinical and medicolegal aspects of retained surgical sponges, with(More)
Described are: 1. Length and width values of the rhomboid fossa. 2. Number and development of the transverse and oblique striae in the bottom area of the fourth ventricle. 3. The course of the facial nerve inside the pons and the medulla oblongata. 4. Some fiber tracts and nuclei in the tegmentum pontis and the medulla oblongata. 5. A very thick(More)
Measurements of the hypoglossal canal: The midpoint of the inner orifice of the hypoglossal canal is on average somewhat over 26 mm away from the opisthion. The distances of the canal centre come to approximately 30 mm, those of the outer canal orifice to 34 mm. The distance of the intracranial pores from each other amounts to 28 xmm. The medial portal for(More)
Occurrence, width and course of the radicular arteries and veins between the occiput and L3 level of the spinal cord were described. The diameter of the anterior spinal, posterior spinal, and posterolateral arteries, was also measured on the segments C2 to C6 and T2 to T10, and L2. Likewise the anterior and posterior spinal veins and the anterolateral and(More)
On 50 human brains the width and course of the veins on the surface of the mesencephalon were determined. The basal vein, for example, has an inside diameter of 1.70 (0.91-2.88) mm. A lateral mesencephalic vein could be demonstrated in 70% of the cases, the width being 0.81 (0.29-1.78) mm. A posterior mesencephalic vein was found in 51%, measuring 0.57(More)
