Contributions of the fourth spinal nerve to the brachial plexus without prefixation: Laboratory investigation
Object. The intradural contributions of the C-4 nerve rootlets have not been previously evaluated for their connections to the brachial plexus. The authors undertook a cadaveric study to evaluate the C-4 contributions to ...
Effects of citicoline on level of consciousness, Serum level of fetuin-A and matrix A-protein (MGP) in trauma patients with diffuse axonal injury (DAI) and GCS?8 [Yayg?n akson hasar? ve gks <8 olan travma hastalar?nda sitikolinin bilinçlilik durumu, Serum fetuin-A ve matriks Gla-protein (MGP) düzeyleri ?zerine etkileri]
BACKGROUND: Citicoline, a neuroprotective drug, has been suggested to improve level of consciousness, mitigating secondary to brain damage and ectopic vascular calcification, following post-traumatic neurogenesis and ...
A comprehensive review with potential significance during skull base and neck operations, Part II: Glossopharyngeal, vagus, accessory, and hypoglossal nerves and cervical spinal nerves 1-4
Knowledge of the possible neural interconnections found between the lower cranial and upper cervical nerves may prove useful to surgeons who operate on the skull base and upper neck regions in order to avoid inadvertent ...
A rare variation of the posterior cranial fossa: Duplicated falx cerebelli, occipital venous sinus, and internal occipital crest
Folds of the meningeal layer of the dura mater, the falx cerebri and tentorium cerebelli, traverse the vertebrate intracranial cavity and thus compartmentalise the brain. The falx cerebelli, another dural fold, is found ...
A rare variation of the vertebral artery
Variations of the vertebrobasilar arterial complex are important with regard to their potential clinical impact, We present an unusual case of the vertebral artery, in which the left vertebral artery in its ascent in the ...
A rare variation of the inferior alveolar artery with potential clinical consequences
Variations of the inferior alveolar artery are seemingly quite rare, especially with regard to its origin from the maxillary artery. We present an unusual case of an inferior alveolar artery that originated from the external ...
Alkaptonuria and lumbar disc herniation: Report of three cases
Alkaptonuria is a rare metabolic disease caused by deficiency of homogentisic acid oxidase and characterized by bluish-black discoloration of cartilages and skin (ochronosis). The authors report the cases of three patients ...
A complex dural-venous variation in the posterior cranial fossa: A triplicate falx cerebelli and an aberrant venous sinus
Variations of the dural folds and the dural venous sinuses are seldom reported in the extant medical literature. Such variations in the posterior cranial fossa may be problematic in various diagnostic and operative procedures ...

Retroscalenic course of the transverse cervical artery with the suprascapular artery travelling through the suprascapular notch
Anatomical variations of the transverse cervical and suprascapular arteries are common. We report an adult male cadaver found to harbour an unusual variation of the right course of these two arteries. The transverse cervical ...
