Because the auricle is an organ that is both used as a flap in reconstructive surgery and is often exposed to trauma, the arterial distribution of the auricle is of great importance. The aims of this study were to investigate the auricular branches of the posterior auricular artery (PAA) and superficial temporal artery (STA), to determine the vascular(More)
The location and size of the opening of the nasolacrimal duct and the lacrimal fold (Hasner's valve) are variable. These features have clinical importance in nasal surgery because of the difficulty in determining their location. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the anatomical features of the opening of the nasolacrimal duct and the lacrimal fold and(More)
The aim of this study was to demonstrate anatomic variations of the superficial branch of the radial nerve (SBRN) and to discuss the importance of this branch for surgical approaches. Upper extremities of 24 cadavers without any known history of disease or trauma were examined, the SBRN became subcutaneous at a mean of 9.20 cm and bifurcated at a mean of(More)
During dissection classes in 2003 in the Department of Anatomy at Ege University Faculty of Medicine, an unexpected variation of the insertion of the tibialis anterior tendon was determined on the right side of a formalin-fixed cadaver of a 40-year-old man without any trace of scars, adhesions or signs of trauma or operation. The insertion of the tibialis(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to describe the relationship between the deep peroneal nerve and the dorsalis pedis artery to help ensure a safer surgical approach in flap surgery. METHODS The dissection of 36 cadaver lower limbs was undertaken to describe the relationship of the deep peroneal nerve to the dorsalis pedis artery in the anterior tarsal(More)
