The qualitative correspondence between degree of motion discomfort and electrodermal activity was investigated. Skin potential level (SPL) and skin resistance level (SRL) in the arousal sweat area and the thermal sweat area were recorded. In order to induce motion discomfort, Coriolis stimulation and/or horizontal body rotation were provided by using a(More)
The fabella is a sesamoid bone located in the proximal tendon of the gastrocnemius muscle. In rare cases, its presence may lead to a variety of clinical problems, including fabella syndrome and common fibular (CF) nerve palsy. The purpose of this study was to analyze the morphology of the fabella and CF nerve and discuss the influence of any existing(More)
In adult cases of bilateral cleft lip nasal deformity, an esthetically satisfying result can not be obtained only by manipulation inside the nose with the nasal tip pointing upward. The nasal tip should be made in a more anterior direction for nasal esthetic improvement. Additional tissue beyond the nose is needed, and the forked flap is a useful method in(More)
BACKGROUND The latissimus dorsi (LD) muscle flap has been widely used in facial reanimation surgery. However, there are no standards to what degree the muscle flap may be safely thinned because the three-dimensional positional relationship of thoracodorsal artery, vein, and nerve inside the LD muscle is poorly understood. METHODS From 18 formalin-fixed(More)
Congenital pharyngeal atresia is a very rare gastrointestinal anomaly, with only seven cases of complete pharyngeal atresia having been reported. Five of these cases were autopsy reports and success in surgery to enable oral ingestion was not reported even for the two surviving cases. This is a report of a 1.5-year-old boy with complete congenital(More)
The qualitative and quantitative correspondence between the degree of motion discomfort and the skin potential reflex (SPR) was examined in four subjects. Head movement was provided three times during body rotation at three different angular velocities (Coriolis stimulus) to induce motion discomfort, and at rest as a control. SPRs were caused in the arousal(More)
