This study set out to investigate the incidence of the os peroneum in a cadaver sample from Johannesburg, South Africa and to note how bio-demographic parameters affect such incidence. The os peroneum (OP) is a sesamoid bone frequently found in the tendon of the fibularis longus muscle (FLM), as it passes on the plantar aspect of the cuboid bone. While this(More)
Children with fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) display striking craniofacial abnormalities. These features are proposed to result from perturbations in the morphology and function of cranial neural crest cells (cNCCs), which contribute significantly to the craniofacial complex. While certain pathways by which this may occur have been suggested, precise(More)
Ethanol is a known teratogen and has been implicated in the etiology of human fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), which is characterized by distinct craniofacial abnormalities such as microcephaly, agnathia, and ocular aberrations. Attempts at quantifying the craniofacial anomalies arising from ethanol exposure have largely been limited to radiographic evaluation(More)
The fabella, a sesamoid bone located in the tendon of the lateral head of the gastrocnemius muscle, was dissected from 102 lower limbs of 51 cadavers of age range 40-95 years (mean, 75.5 ± 14.5 years). The incidence of this sesamoid was determined as were its dimensions and radiological and histological features. The fabella was present in 23.5% of(More)
