The present study attempts to determine the cutaneous pattern of distribution of the sural nerve on the dorsum of the foot to note the predominant pattern present and whether there was any association between the innervation pattern and sex or side. A total of 260 Indian feet (78 adult feet: 60 male, 18 female; 52 fetal feet: 20 male, 32 female) were(More)
Several case reports on variations of the brachial plexus have been reported in the literature. These reports provide valuable information for understanding the clinical signs related to neuropathy of varying origins. The authors of this report present a case that involved all the terminal branches of the brachial plexus and the axillary artery in a cadaver(More)
To introduce first-year medical students to fundamental concepts in histology and facilitate interpretation of two-dimensional images in the context of the three-dimensional nature of the object, a simple teaching module consisting of active exercises plus group discussions, using familiar objects from everyday use, was planned. In the process of mentally(More)
The value of the thumb has been described as being almost equal to the rest of the fingers combined (Decker and du Plessis, eds. 1986, Lee McGregor's synopsis of surgical anatomy. 12th ed. p 496). Normal hand function is dependent upon the integrity of both the sensory and motor innervation of the thumb. A thorough knowledge of normal and anomalous sensory(More)
In an adult male cadaver, the flexor digiti minimi brevis, a muscle of the hypothenar eminence, was found to arise from the superficial transverse septum (between the superficially placed flexor carpi ulnaris, palmaris longus, and flexor carpi radialis muscles, and the deeply placed flexor digitorum superficialis muscle) in the distal fourth of the flexor(More)
Authors report here a survey of medical student feedback on the effectiveness of two different anatomy curricula at Christian Medical College, Vellore, India.

The study of anatomy is experiencing a reduction in course duration and content, lecture and dissection hours, and number of lectures and examinations. This necessitates that medical students develop skills for self-study. Toward that end, a self-study module in basic anatomy was tested. Fifty-seven new entrants were given a pretest (Pretest A) containing a(More)
Measurements of the size of the bony markers at the distal end of the radius as well as the length of the radius in 61 left and 64 right dry radii were statistically analyzed. Since 90-95% of the general population is right-handed, as based on differences in the size of the right sided markers relative to the left, it is proposed that the greater distance(More)
Questionnaires were sent to 118 previous holders of demonstrator posts in anatomy at the Christian Medical College, Vellore, India, in order to determine the role of these posts in the medical profession. Sixty-three (94%) of the respondents had postgraduate medical qualifications. Forty-four (66%) of the respondents were surgeons, and 23 (34%) were in(More)
