In a dissection performed in our department, we observed multiple variations of the greater omentum. The unusual attachments of the greater omentum were identified. While the right upper part combined with ligamentum teres hepatis, the left upper part had connection with the anterolateral abdominal wall. In addition, the free lower margin of the greater(More)
OBJECTIVES Repetitive microtrauma or overuse injuries may often affect upper extremities of the long term computer users. The aim of this study was to compare sensory nerve conduction velocities (SNCV) for median, radial and ulnar nerves in the wrist of computer users with the same parameters in controls who do not use computers regularly. MATERIAL AND(More)
In a dissection performed in our department, we observed multiple variations of the azygos venous system. The hemiazygos vein was absent. The posterior 8th, 9th, and 10th intercostal veins united and their common trunk crossed the vertebral column obliquely lying anterior to the aorta and posterior to the esophagus and opening into the azygos vein at the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate early changes occurring in both medial and lateral meniscus thickness from the knees of patients with osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS We conducted this study in the Department of Anatomy and Division of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, Kocaeli University, Kocaeli, Turkey during the period 2004 to 2005. In this study, we measured the(More)
We observed a rare variation of splenic artery during the routine dissection in the Laboratory of the Anatomy Department. It arose from the splenic artery toward the distal part of transverse colon which typically supplied by the inferior mesenteric artery. Embryologically distal part of the transverse colon is a segment of hindgut. In this case, splenic(More)
The aim of this study was to determine and compare the maximal voluntary peak torque of the hamstring and quadriceps muscles, and the torque ratio between these muscles in volleyball and basketball players across a spectrum of speeds in their dominant legs. Twenty male volleyball players, 20 male basketball players, and 20 controls were evaluated using an(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the volume of the medial epicondyle and lateral epicondyle in comparison with the distal end of humerus volume in male and female elite athletes participating in an impact loading sport (volleyball). The volleyball group consisted of 17 female, aged 20.47 +/- 2.47 years (mean +/- SD), 16 male aged 21.68 +/- 3.47 years(More)
Variations of morphology of the aorta and its branches are of considerable interest as vessel geometry not only determines flow dynamics, but is also crucial in the pathogenesis of vascular diseases, e.g., atherosclerosis and aneurysm formation [1]. The relationship between the anterior visceral and renal arteries is important when undertaking diagnostic(More)
