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 ...
Cruveilhier plexus: An anatomical study and a potential cause of failed treatments for occipital neuralgia and muscular and facet denervation procedures: Laboratory investigation
Object. The nerves of the posterior neck are often encountered by the neurosurgeon and are sometimes the focus of denervation procedures for muscular, joint, or nervous pathologies. One collection of fibers in this region ...
Dietary L-arginine and cutaneous wound healing
Skin wound healing has been the subject of extensive studies and various drugs have been used in an attempt to improve wound healing. There are conflicting data regarding the effects of L-arginine, the substrate of nitric ...

The effects of aerobic exercise training on the age-related lipid peroxidation, Schwann cell apoptosis and ultrastructural changes in the sciatic nerve of rats.
The potential role of exercise in preventing the age-related spontaneous peripheral neuropathy has not been studied. We examined the effects of long-term aerobic exercise training on lipid peroxidation, Schwann cell (SC) ...
Peri-hilar branching patterns and morphologies of the renal artery: a review and anatomical study.
The peri-hilar (extra-parenchymal) branching pattern of the renal artery is important for surgeons to know prior to kidney transplantation. The aim of this study was to identify the variations in peri-hilar branching pattern ...
Hypophosphatemic encephalopathy in a CAPD patient.
Severe refeeding hypophosphatemia has been reported in infants and adults on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. We report an episode of transient encephalopathy and cardiac suppression in a diabetic, malnourished ...
