The place of anatomy in medical education: AMEE Guide no 41
This Guide, a combined work by three authors from different countries, provides perspectives into the history of teaching gross anatomy, briefly, from the earliest of times, through to a detailed
Surgical implications of variations in hand collateral circulation: anatomy revisited.
This anatomic study confirms the presence of a collateral supply in the hand, and in the absence of vascular disease, harvesting the radial artery should be regarded as a safe procedure.
The anatomy of the distal vagina: towards unity.
The anatomy of the distal vagina, clitoris, and urethra form an integrated entity covered superficially by the vulval skin and its epithelial features and during sexual stimulation respond as a unit though the responses are not uniform.
Reactions of first‐year medical students to their initial encounter with a cadaver in the dissecting room
A need for improving both the preparation for coping with dissection and the follow-up opportunities for dealing with professional and emotional issues raised during human dissection is suggested.
Anatomy of the pudendal nerve and its terminal branches: a cadaver study
The anatomy of the pudendal nerve, which has a major role in maintaining faecal continence, is documents and might be encountered during pelvic procedures such as a sacrospinous colpopexy.
Should there be a national core curriculum for anatomy?
The sentiment from both the Craig et al. paper and the ANZACA forum is that anatomy must be reinstated primarily (though not exclusively) as a ‘stand-alone’ subject within the framework of PBL curricula.
