OBJECTIVE To investigate the frequency of unilateral or bilateral foramen of Vesalius (FV), number of FV present on one side, and presence of a septum on FV. METHODS We bilaterally examined, 347 sphenoid bones of collections of the Department of Anatomy, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine, Istanbul University, Istanbul and Dokuz Eylul Faculty of Medicine,(More)
De Quervain disease is the stenosing tenosynovitis of the first extensor compartment of the wrist. It is diagnosed with a history of pain at the radial aspect of the wrist and a positive Finkelstein test. Although anatomic variations, such as a septum within the compartment, are considered as risk factors, bony anatomy of distal radius and its correlation(More)
PURPOSE The superficial radial nerve and its branches are vulnerable during surgery for de Quervain tenovaginitis. We studied the proximity of the nerve branches to the first extensor compartment. METHODS We dissected 20 forearms of 11 cadavers and measured the branching point of the superficial radial nerve relative to the radial styloid. We defined the(More)
We present a case in which a mixed-type intermesenteric trunk was the major arterial supply for the ascending, transverse, and descending colons. We dissected a cadaver of a man aged 74 years that was used for a routine abdominal dissection course of 2nd year medical students. We observed that a mixed-type intermesenteric trunk supplied the majority of the(More)
We aimed to make first demonstration of the course and branching pattern of deep branch of the radial nerve (DBRN) in relation to the supinator muscle in the forearms of fetuses and make morphological measurements in both fetuses and adults. We carried out dissection on 80 radial nerves from 20 adult cadavers (16 males and 4 females), ranging from 30 to 56(More)
PURPOSE The knowledge regarding the mendosal suture is still on debate in the literature. Though reports of the closure of this childhood suture are variable, a few reports show the presence of the suture in the adults. This study was conducted to determine the occurrence and a better topographic location of the mendosal suture. METHODS We used 129 dry(More)
Recent theories about migraine pathogenesis have emphatized the role of the trigeminal system in the pathogenesis of migraine attacks. The local vasodilatation of intracranial extracerebral blood vessels and the consequent stimulation of surrounding trigeminal sensory nerve pain pathways are proposed to be the key mechanisms underlying the generation of(More)
BACKGROUND The jugular tubercle (JT) is an important part of the craniovertebral junction. The removal of the JT in the far-lateral approach provides a significant increase in the operative space. The purpose of this morphometrical study was to define the anatomical variations of the JT. METHODS Thirty-eight dry skulls were included in this study. Seven(More)
OBJECTIVE Medial canthal ligament (MCL) and lacrimal system are often associated with naso-orbitoethmoidal fractures. The MCL anchors tarsal plate to medial orbit and has an important role in lacrimal pump system. The purpose of this study was to describe the anatomy of the MCL and present the anthropometric measurements on cadaveric specimens. METHODS(More)
