Variant branching pattern of the cords of brachial plexus coupled with erroneous communications has been an area of concern for surgeons opting to explore this region. Anaesthetic blocks and surgical approaches are the highlights of these interventions, where a keen familiarization of the anatomy of this region is mandatory. The present case description(More)
Lumbrical muscles are pivotal in execution of fine skillful movements of the hand. Anomalies in their morphology are not uncommon. We report an exceptional bifid origin of first lumbrical muscle of the left upper limb, discovered incidentally in gross anatomy dissection class. The 1st lumbrical was observed to comprise of two heads, the accessory one(More)
Morphological variations of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle assume relevance during attempted surgical interventions in the cervical region. The present study reports bipartite clavicular attachment of the SCM in the neck of an adult male cadaver during performance of a routine anatomy demonstration. The anomaly was unilaterally observed on the left(More)
The anomalous orientation of musculature of the first dorsal fibro-osseous compartment of the wrist is clinically relevant to De Quervian's stenosing tenosynovitis and reconstructive surgeries. Split insertion of the abductor pollicis longus (APL) is commonly found in chimpanzees, gorillas and gibbons. A comparable identical pattern of anomalous slips in(More)
Neural variations of the brachium constitute an important anatomical and clinical entity. Although frequently reported, if accompanied by other anomalies, they deserve special mention in anatomical literature. The goal of this present study is to report a communication between the median (MN) and musculocutaneous nerve (MCN), concomitant with an accessory(More)
The current study seeks to elucidate the presence and potential function of an anomalous tendinous origin of the brachialis muscle. The brachialis muscle originates from the humeral shaft, which is usually muscular, thereby becoming tendo-aponeurotic distally towards its insertion. During routine cadaveric dissection, in a 52-year-old cadaver, the anomalous(More)
Human hand is haughtily described in literature as 'revolution in evolution'. Lumbricals form an intricate part of its musculature playing a vital role in complex digital movements. By virtue of their origin from the volar aspect of palm and their insertion onto the dorsal aspect to the extensor digital expansion of the digits, lumbricals display complex(More)
