The authors observed a variation of the inferior mesenteric artery, which arose from the superior mesenteric artery, in a 69-year-old Japanese male cadaver during dissection in 1984. In this case, no rudiment of the ordinary inferior mesenteric artery could be found on the abdominal aorta. There are few reports of this variation, and an extensive search of(More)
The central axon of a primary afferent neuron that responded to indentation of the glabrous skin of the lower lip in a slowly adapting fashion was intra-axonally injected with horseradish peroxidase. The labeled terminal within the subnucleus oralis was examined electron microscopically. The labeled ending had a pale axoplasm and contained clear spherical(More)
Benign notochordal cell tumours have recently been described as intraosseous benign lesions of notochordal cell origin. The lesions are found in vertebral bodies in 20% of autopsy studies and are a potential precursor of chordoma. We report a rare case of lumbar vertebral chordoma that was thought to arise from a benign intraosseous notochordal cell tumour(More)
We aimed to determine an optimal protocol for inducing a focal inflammatory lesion within the rat brain that could be large enough for an easier MRI monitoring while still relevant as a multiple sclerosis (MS) like lesion. We adapted a two-hit model based on pre-sensitization of the Lewis rat with myelin oligodendrocyte protein (MOG) followed by stereotaxic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to characterize the imaging spectrum of benign notochordal cell tumors (BNCTs) and chondromas and to determine if this helped in differentiating BNCTs from chordomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-eight patients pathologically diagnosed with chordomas were reviewed and ultimately diagnosed to have five BNCTs and 33(More)
Location of the motoneurons supplying the tensor veli palatini muscle of the rabbit was examined with the retrograde labeling technique following intramuscular injection of HRP. Labeled motoneurons were ipsilaterally located in the ventral or ventromedial portion of the rostral two-thirds of the motor trigeminal nucleus at the level of about 6.0 to 8.5 mm(More)
The neurons of origin of the internal ramus of the rabbit accessory nerve were identified in the dorsal nucleus of the vagus nerve, using bilateral injections of horseradish peroxidase into the inferior vagal ganglion, soft palate, and pharynx, which were preceded by different combinations of the unilateral intracranial severings of the rootlets of the(More)
An organized hematoma is a chronic state of fibrotic tissue surrounding a hemorrhage. A mass lesion resulting from hematoma in the maxillary sinus was first reported in 1917, and the term, "blood boil," was clinically coined from such features as encapsulated blood and locally aggressive behavior. Subsequently, others have reported lesions with a similar(More)
We report a case of synovial sarcoma in the neck that was initially considered to be a benign soft-tissue tumour. The mass appeared to originate in the perivertebral space, extending to the spinal canal via the C3/4 and C4/5 neural foramina. The mass also encased the right vertebral artery and this suggested a malignant soft-tissue tumour.
PURPOSE To investigate imaging characteristics of post-embolised meningioma and to determine if SW imaging can delineate tumour ischaemia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen patients were studied before and after preoperative embolisation therapy (8 histopathologically determined with ischaemia, 8 with non-ischaemia). In each patient, a slice-wise ROI for the(More)
