Right medial internal jugular vein: A reversed carotid sheath
Venous access is often essential in critical care medicine. The internal jugular vein (IJV) often provides reliable blood flow when subjected to cannulation. However, anatomical variations of the IJV have been reported as ...
Legacy of Avicenna and evidence-based medicine.
Although the term 'evidence-based medicine' (EBM) is of recent origin, its roots are generally agreed to lie in earlier times. Several writers have suggested that the 11th century CE physician and philosopher Avicenna (Ibn ...
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. ...
A complex dural-venous variation in the posterior cranial fossa: A triplicate falx cerebelli and an aberrant venous sinus
Variations of the dural folds and the dural venous sinuses are seldom reported in the extant medical literature. Such variations in the posterior cranial fossa may be problematic in various diagnostic and operative procedures ...
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 ...
The sub-peritoneal arterial plexus of Sir William Turner.
Sir William Turner (1832-1916) was Professor of Anatomy at the University of Edinburgh. His classic paper of 1863 on the anastomoses between the parietal and visceral branches of the abdominal aorta, later known as the ...
Bilateral accessory middle cerebral arteries associated with an aneurysm of the anterior circulation
An accessory middle cerebral artery is one variation of the intracranial vasculature that may be a source of misinterpretation by clinicians dealing with cerebrovascular diseases. We report a case of an elderly female found ...
