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 ...
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 ...

Intraluminal septation of the basilar artery: Incidence and potential clinical significance
Variations in the cerebrovascular tree can increase surgical or interventional morbidity. To date, only scant comments are to be found in the literature regarding intraluminal variations of the basilar artery. To further ...
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 ...
Levator claviculae: A case report and review of the literature
The levator claviculae is an uncommon anatomical variant found in the posterior cervical triangle. In this report we present a 78-year-old man with this muscular variation, which was found during gross anatomical dissection. ...
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 ...
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 ...
