Combined aneurysms of the main renal and celiac arteries: an unusual association.
Celiac artery aneurysm (CAA) is a rare condition, which occasionally occurs in association with such visceral aneurysms as splenic, common hepatic, left hepatic, superior mesenteric and renal arteries. We describe our ...
Neurological manifestations, imaging characteristics, and surgical outcome of intraspinal osteochondroma.
Spinal osteochondromas (OCs) are rare and can originate as solitary lesions or in the context of hereditary multiple exostoses. Concurrent spinal cord compression is a very rare entity. The purpose of this study was to ...
Enamel matrix derivative Emdogain® as an adjuvant for a laterally-positioned flap in the treatment of gingival recession: An electron microscopic appraisal
Enamel matrix derivative (EMD), such as Emdogain®, has been suggested for the improvement of wound healing in periodontal surgical therapy. The present qualitative study seeks to illustrate the ultrastructural changes ...
Parvovirus B19 microepidemic in renal transplant recipients with thrombotic microangiopathy and allograft vasculitis.
Parvovirus B-19 (B-19) can lead to various clinical scenarios in renal transplant recipients. Here, we report a B-19 microepidemic that occurred between January and March 2007, involving renal transplant recipients from a ...
Do mechanical fluid laws dictate the branching pattern of the renal artery?
Anatomy of the renal artery is an important issue in the renal transplantation era. Multi-detector computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) is an accurate modality for the preoperative assessment of live renal donors, and ...
Origins of the gonadal artery: embryologic implications.
The gonadal arteries are paired vessels that usually originate from the abdominal aorta at the level of second lumbar vertebra. In 5-20% of cases, the gonadal artery has a high origin (superior to L2) and in 5-6% of cases ...
Bipolar supernumerary renal artery.
The variations of renal arteries are considered critical issues that surgeons should have thorough envision and appreciation of the condition. Variations of these vessels may influences urological, renal transplantation ...
An unusual course of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve.
Variation in the course of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve is seemingly very rare. During the routine dissection of an adult male cadaver, the entire left recurrent laryngeal nerve after branching from the left vagus ...
Ansa cervicalis as a variant of spinal accessory nerve plexus: a case report.
The ansa cervicalis is a neural loop in the neck formed by the union of two main nerve roots, namely superior and inferior roots, derived from ventral rami of the cervical nerves. With the expanding use of the ansa cervicalis ...
