The relation of the nerves with the piriformis muscle in the deep gluteal region examined in 50 buttock from 18 male and 7 male newborn cadavers. The nerves were found in usual position in 74% of sides, while one or more nerves perforated the piriformis in 16% and, unusual location of the nerves with intact piriformis was in 10% of sides. Abnormal located(More)
The heart of an anencephalic baby can be used as a donor after death. There exists insufficient information in literature, however, for the possible morphological differences in anencephalic hearts. This study compares ventricular myocardial thicknesses of anencephalic fetuses with normal fetuses in the same gestational age group. The comparison was made(More)
In this study, we focused on finding out whether branching patterns of the common fibular (CFN) and superficial fibular (SFN) nerves change throughout the early period of life. The popliteal fossa and legs on both sides of 20 fetuses (13 females and 7 males) were dissected. The ages of the fetuses varied between 20 and 36 weeks. The levels where the CFN(More)
An accessory flexor digitorum longus muscle associated with a high division of the tibial nerve was encountered during routine dissection in the right leg of a newborn cadaver. The tibial nerve divided into its two terminal branches at a higher level than normal with a small branch from the tibial nerve contributing to one of the terminal branches. In(More)
Anencephaly occurs in 1:1,000 to 1:20,000 infants who are potential donors in pediatric heart transplantation, so it is important to define any morphologic differences between the anencephalic and normal heart in newborns. The dimensions of the heart in anencephalics, however, may differ. For example, the absence of cerebral tissue in anencephalic fetuses(More)
The effect of intravenous (i.v.) essential amino acids (EAA) in the treatment of acute renal failure was evaluated in 50 patients. Thirty patients (Group A) received daily 13.4 g of i.v. EAA solution [Nephramine (Don Baxter, McGraw) 250 ml/d]+dopamine i.v. 2 micrograms/kg/min + 20% hypertonic glucose solution 500 ml/d as compared with twenty patients (Group(More)
