The lingulae of both sides of 165 dry adult human mandibles, 131 males and 34 females of Indian origin, were classified by their shape into 4 types: 1, triangular; 2, truncated; 3, nodular; and 4, assimilated. Triangular lingulae were found in 226 (68.5%) sides, truncated in 52 (15.8%), nodular in 36 (10.9%) and assimilated in 16 (4.8%) sides. Triangular(More)
The external jugular v. (EJV) is increasingly being used for therapeutic procedures and monitoring by clinicians. In view of this clinical relevance, dissection was done on the head and neck regions in 40 adult cadavers of Indian origin to detect variations of the EJV. Though several patterns of tributaries were found, a facial v. (FV) of considerable size(More)
The superficial veins, especially the external jugular vein (EJV), are increasingly being utilized for cannulation to conduct diagnostic procedures or intravenous therapies. Ultrasound-guided venipuncture is a viable possibility in cases of variations in the patterns of superficial veins, and their knowledge is also important for surgeons doing(More)
Morphological diversity in the form of multiple zygomaticofacial (ZF) foramina was studied in 165 dry, unsexed adult human skulls. Zygomatic bones revealed variation in the number of foramina on their orbital and facial aspects. These were absent in 72 (21.8%) sides. A single ZF foramen was seen in 148 (44.9%) sides. Two ZF foramina were found in 92 (27.9%)(More)
Three human skulls showing duplication of the optic canal are reported. Two had bilateral duplication while one had duplication on one side only. The measurements of the whole canal were within the range of normal. Septa of variable thickness separated the main and the accessory canals in these skulls and the skulls also showed a tendency to excessive bone(More)
Forty suprarenal glands were studied, 20 being dissected from aborted fetuses of 9 to 36 weeks' gestation and 20 obtained from human cadavers of ages 1 day to 60 years. All the specimens were from a Northern India population. The side and shape of each suprarenal gland was noted and documented. The length, breadth, thickness and volume of each gland were(More)
An unusually long paracondylar process (PCP) was found articulating with the transverse atlantal process in a dry adult male skull. It was 13 mm long and 19 mm in circumference at its middle and projected to a lower plane than the styloid process of the same side. A radiograph revealed the structure of spongiosa of the PCP to be like mastoid cells. PCP can(More)
A morphological peculiarity was observed in the form of a submandibular gland having three ducts. These ducts opened separately into the oral cavity. Only the upper and the largest of these three ducts was in the usual position and had the expected relation to the lingual nerve. Such a condition is to be kept in mind by a surgeon or a radiologist performing(More)
An interesting case of peculiarity of the distal attachment of the three fibular muscles is reported in the left foot of a male adult cadaver of Indian origin. The fibularis brevis, just inferior to the fibular malleolus, gave off an additional slender tendon anteromedial to its main tendon. This was attached to the dorsal digital expansion of the little(More)
The present study was carried out in terms of discriminant analysis and was conducted on 100 human hip bones (of unknown sex) of Indian origin. Based on morphological features, each of the hip bone was rated on a scale of 1-3 for sexing. Twelve measurements and five indices were recorded. The results of discriminant function analysis showed that the(More)
