Multiple variations of the deep artery of arm were observed during routine gross anatomic dissection of the right upper extremity of a 54-year-old male cadaver. In this case study, a double deep artery of arm and the deep artery of arm with the superior ulnar collateral artery were reported. The anatomic origin of the deep artery of arm is variable. In the(More)
Brown tumors are tumor-like, expansile osteolytic lesions of bone which are seen in both primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism. They generally resolve after surgical treatment of the parathyroid adenoma. Here, we report a case of brown tumor of the mandible of a cadaver with its scanning electron microscopic observation and review of literature.
Extralaryngeal division of the recurrent laryngeal nerve was contradictory in the literature. We aimed to investigate extralaryngeal division of the nerve, and also propose a new description for the inferior laryngeal nerve. Sixty specimens (120 sides) were examined for this project, including 41 men and 19 women cadavers between the ages of 40 and 89 years(More)
It is known that circumventricular organs that are located around the ventricular system of the brain are lack of blood-brain barrier and support the body water-salt balance. They also effect many physiological events such as some neuroendocrine and reproduction mechanisms. In different pathological conditions their results and the step in which the(More)
Griscelli syndrome is a rare disease characterized by pigment dilution, partial albinism, variable cellular immunodeficiency, and an acute phase of uncontrolled T-lymphocyte, and macrophage activation. Griscelli et al described this syndrome in 1978. Since then, only in approximately 60 cases have been reported, most from the Turkish, and Mediterranean(More)
Computerised modelling methods have become highly useful for generating electronic representations of anatomical structures. These methods rely on crosssectional tissue slices in databases such as the Visible Human Male and Female, the Visible Korean Human, and the Visible Chinese Human. However, these databases are time consuming to generate and require(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the absence of the palmaris longus, the proportion of the lengths of tendon and muscle belly, the development of the tendon and the belly during the fetal period, look for any difference between sides and gender. Fifty-eight spontaneously aborted human fetuses (26 female, 32 male, 116 upper extremities) were studied. The(More)
The purpose of our study is to compare basilar artery diameters (BAD) measured by T2WI to diameters measured by TOF MR angiography (MRA). By doing this, we hope to understand how compatible these two methodologies are with each other. We used data from 100 patients (59 females, 41 males) who underwent a session of both T2W MRI and TOF MRA at the same time(More)
PURPOSE Articulation of rostrum of sphenoid bone with alae of vomer forms a schindylesis type of joint. The circumference of this joint, called sphenovomerine suture (SVS), is very important in establishing a reliable surgical field in the endoscopic transsphenoidal pituitary surgery. Because of its vital role in endoscopic transsphenoidal pituitary(More)
Variations on the neuromuscular structures of the upper limb reflect the complex development of that region. Many of them may be important during surgical and/or diagnostic procedures; however, some of them are of academic interest. Here we report a case of six neuromuscular variations in a single upper limb. During routine educational dissection for the(More)
