OBJECTIVE To describe the normal and variant anatomy of the coronary artery ostia in Indian subjects. INTRODUCTION Anomalous coronary origins may cause potentially dangerous symptoms, and even sudden death during strenuous activity. A cadaveric study in an unsuspected population provides a basis for understanding the normal variants, which may facilitate(More)
BACKGROUND Ideally, bone has the external shape and internal architecture best adapted to its function. The internal architecture of the talus should reflect its functional adaptations. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the orientation of lamellae to account for its role in transmission of various forces. METHOD Twenty-five pairs of dry adult(More)
INTRODUCTION Os Peroneum is round or oval shaped sesamoid within the substance of the Peroneus longus tendon as it plays on the Cuboid bone. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty six embalmed cadavers were dissected bilaterally. Lateral part of foot and sole was dissected to expose Peroneus longus tendon and Os Peroneum. Measurements of Os Peroneum and articular(More)
Available studies on internal architecture of the calcaneus are cursory and contradictory. Present study focused on elaborate descriptions of the different trabecular groups and their correlation with the fractures of this bone. To study the internal architecture, 50 dry adult human calcanei were sectioned in various planes and grossly dissected. Six(More)
Background: Plantaris is the largest muscle in mammals other than primates. Plantaris muscle has been a subject of much confusion and Evolutionists have speculated on its phylogenetic significance, as a vestigial organ, while surgeons have removed it 'useless vestige' to employ its tendon as a spare part for the surgical repair. In humans it is reduced(More)
BACKGROUND It is important to determine the size and proportion of the larynx as such information is useful in procedures such as intubation, endoscopy and surgical manipulations. Recent interest in the cases of subglottic stenosis and postintubational stenosis of the lower respiratory tract has led to renewed interest in ascertaining the measurements of(More)
