Abnormal anterior belly of the digastric muscle: a proposal for the classification of abnormalities
We recognized an abnormal anterior belly of the digastric muscle in an 83-year-old male cadaver. Three muscle bundles were observed on the left anterior belly: (i) attached to the left digastricExpand

Analysis of the three‐dimensional lymphatic architecture of the periodontal tissue using a new 3D reconstruction method
Few studies of lymphatic vessels have been reported because diacrisis of this vascular system is rare. A complete examination of diacrisis of venula is not yet possible even using recentExpand
