The temporoparietal, parieto-occipital flaps or the forehead flaps that are used in reconstructive surgery are prepared on the superficial temporal artery (STA) and its branches. For a successful surgery and a suitable flap design, adequate anatomical knowledge is needed. In our study, the red colored latex solution was injected into the external carotid(More)
To lead a quality life, tendon repair must be performed in a trauma causing damage to the extensor tendon of the hand. The aim of this study is to study the structures that can be used as donor tendons. Fifty-four dissected adult hands were examined to study the pattern of the extensor tendons on the dorsum of the hand. The most common distribution patterns(More)
The juncturae tendinum (JT) may coordinate the extension of hand, force redistribution and the stabilization of the metacarpophalangeal joint. The JT were studied for their gross appearance, shape, thickness, location and histological examination with the dorsum of the hand in 54 cadavers. The JT were identified into three groups according to their(More)
Introduction The pterygospinous ligament extends from the pterygospinous process of the lateral lamina of the pterygoid process of the sphenoid bone, coursing inferior level of the oval foramen, to the spine of sphenoid bone in the infratemporal fossa. The ossification of ligament forms the pterygospinous bony bridge and pterygospinous foramen (Figure 1).(More)
AIM Increased thickening of the internal surface of the frontal bone (ISFB) was investigated, regarding possible pressure application to the brain tissue and the changes in bone marrow structure. MATERIAL AND METHODS Morphological analysis of the ISFB was carried out in a total of 300 adult skulls. RESULTS Type A, defined as normal appearance, has been(More)
The lumbrical muscles are located in the midpalm, dorsal to the palmar aponeurosis. The main function of these muscles is an indirect contribution to interphalangeal joint extension by decreasing the flexor effect of the flexor digitorum profundus muscle. Due to their minor biomechanical functions and suitable constructions, these muscles have been(More)
The dynamic balance of the eyebrows is maintained by the frontal muscle which acts as a brow elevator, and the brow depressors include corrugator supercilii muscle (CSM), procerus, depressor supercilii, and orbicularis oculi muscles. The glabellar rhytids might appear as a result of negative emotions, such as anger, anxiety, fatigue, fear, or disapproval.(More)
