Endoscopically assisted decompression of the suprascapular nerve in the supraspinous fossa: A cadaveric feasibility study. Laboratory investigation
Object. The suprascapular nerve may become entrapped as it travels deep to the suprascapular ligament, necessitating decompression. The present study was performed to verify the feasibility of a minimally invasive, ...
The role of myoendothelial gap junctions in the formation of arterial aneurysms: The hypothesis of "connexin 43:40 stoichiometry"
Heterocellular myoendothelial gap junctions (MEGJs) are essential in coordinating and regulating vasomotion. Little is known about their potential role in disease states. We discuss how alteration in the Cx 43:40 expression ...
The velum interpositum revisited and redefined
Introduction: Descriptions of the velum interpositum (VI) are typically brief and lacking detail in most neuroanatomical and neurosurgical texts. As this structure may be involved clinically or encountered surgically, the ...
Lateral lakes of Trolard: Anatomy, quantitation, and surgical landmarks - Laboratory investigation
Object. There is scant and conflicting information in the literature regarding the lateral lacunae, or lateral lakes of Trolard. As these venous structures can be encountered surgically, this study aimed at further elucidating ...
The long thoracic nerve as a donor for facial nerve reanimation procedures: Cadaveric feasibility study: Laboratory investigation
Object. Injury of the facial nerve with resultant facial muscle paralysis may result in other significant complications such as corneal ulceration. To the authors' knowledge, neurotization to the facial nerve using the ...
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 ...
What did Avicenna (Ibn Sina, 980-1037 A.D.) look like?
We present a reconstruction of Avicenna's face from the only photograph of his skull available today. The photograph is more than 50 years old, and was obtained during the exhumation of Avicenna's tomb in Hamadan for ...
Wound or disintegration complex: a theory of wound hybrids
[No abstract available]
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 ...
