The arterial anatomy of the temporal region was examined macroscopically and radiographically in 10 fresh cadavers which had been injected with lead oxide. The blood supply of the temporal region is derived from the superficial temporal, middle temporal, deep temporal, posterior auricular, transverse facial, zygomatico-orbital, zygomaticotemporal,(More)
The arterial anatomy of the accompanying arteries of the cutaneous veins and cutaneous nerves in the extremities was investigated in 10 fresh cadavers that had been injected with a lead oxide-gelatin mixture throughout the entire body. It is well known that cutaneous nerves have neurocutaneous perforators, but it was found that cutaneous veins also have(More)
BACKGROUND Investigate the effectiveness of beam-hardening (BH) correction using ECG-gated dual-kVp computed tomography (CT) for myocardial imaging. METHODS AND RESULTS A human heart specimen and artificial descending aorta were scanned using both dual-kVp and single 120-kVp modes. The myocardial CT values at the anterior and posterobasal walls were(More)
The subcutaneous adipofascial tissue over the entire body was radiographically and macroscopically investigated in 20 fresh and embalmed cadavers. The subcutaneous adipofascial tissue was made up of two adipofascial layers. Because the superficial layer forms a solid structure and is thought to protect against external forces, the adipofascial system formed(More)
BACKGROUND In some short malunion cases, midshaft clavicular fractures are reported to result in unsatisfactory clinical outcomes. Shortening deformity of the clavicle could change the anatomical alignment of the shoulder girdle and is surmised to affect shoulder kinematics on arm movements. Nevertheless, no report has ever referred to documented changes.(More)
HYPOTHESIS The clavicle serves as a strut between the thorax and scapula, and lack of this function could affect shoulder mobility. We hypothesized that clavicular discontinuity changes shoulder kinematics, particularly affecting scapular motion. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study used 14 cadaveric shoulders. Cadavers were stabilized in the sitting position.(More)
Twenty-five facial arteries were examined radiographically in 19 fresh cadavers that had been injected systemically with a lead oxide-gelatin mixture. Major branches of the facial artery in the upper lip and nose were investigated, and the anatomical variations were classified into three types on the basis of the anatomy of the lateral nasal artery, which(More)
The blood supply of the nipple-areola complex was investigated radiographically in five fresh cadavers that had been systemically injected with lead oxide. The blood supply of the breast is derived from the external mammary, internal mammary, intercostal, and thoracoacromial arteries. We found that branches of the external and internal mammary arteries(More)
This report introduces a new method for the correction of cryptotia using an advancement flap supplied by both superior auricular muscle and skin pedicle. This procedure has many advantages: the design is simple, the procedure is easy, the hairline is not disturbed by the operation, the maintenance of a deep auricular sulcus allows the patient to wear(More)
The anatomy of the venous system in the pedicles of the radial forearm and anterior tibial reverse flow flaps was investigated in fresh cadavers (n = 6) and their drainage pathways were observed in a radiographic perfusion study of the veins of 2 radial forearm and 2 anterior tibial pedicles. The venous system was found to consist mainly of three types of(More)
