The most common anatomical sites of arterial injury in the extremities: A review of 75 angiographically-proven cases
The incidence of vascular injury has increased worldwide. In an attempt to quantitate the specific arteries most commonly involved in the extremities, we reviewed 75 patients with extremity trauma who were evaluated with ...
The split flexor digitorum superficialis
Variations of the muscles of the anterior forearm are common. We report the cadaveric findings of an unusual variant of flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS). The deep part of the FDS was found to be split and showed two ...
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 ...

Lepromatous leprosy in a kidney transplant recipient: a case report.
Leprosy is a chronic granulomatous disease of the skin and peripheral nerves caused by Mycobacterium leprae. Among mycobacterial infections, leprosy is rare in renal transplant recipients. Here, we report the manifestations ...
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 ...
Screening for thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms in patients with aortoiliac atherosclerosis: A preliminary study
Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAs) usually present with rupture and carry a high morbidity and mortality rate. Early detection of TAAs with screening methods and elective surgical repair could potentially diminish ...
Associations of Endothelin Polymorphisms and Aneurysm Size at Time of Rupture.
Aneurysm size is an important risk factor for aneurysm rupture. The pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying aneurysm growth remain poorly understood. Endothelin signaling is critical for cerebrovascular blood flow regulation. ...
Prevalence and risk factors of hepatitis B infection among hemodialysis patients in Tabriz: a multicenter report.
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is an important issue in hemodialysis. Risk factors and local prevalence varies between different regions. The current study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of HBV infection and ...
