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 ...
Peri-hilar branching patterns and morphologies of the renal artery: a review and anatomical study.
The peri-hilar (extra-parenchymal) branching pattern of the renal artery is important for surgeons to know prior to kidney transplantation. The aim of this study was to identify the variations in peri-hilar branching pattern ...
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, ...
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 ...
Fourth ventriculoceles with extracranial extension: One case report
Encephaloceles involving only the herniated fourth ventricle are exceedingly rare. We report a case of such a cranial malformation and review the literature regarding these malformations and their potential embryological ...

Massive diminution of the cervical spine: One case report
The authors report a 13-year-old female with shunted hydrocephalus who when evaluated for neck pain, was found to have not only fusion of cervical vertebrae but significant diminution of the cervical spine. Following our ...
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 ...
Indirect inguinal hernia of the urinary bladder through a persistent canal of Nuck: Case report
We report a 79-year-old female cadaver found to harbor an indirect inguinal hernia involving the urinary bladder. Further investigation revealed a patent canal of Nuck. The authors describe this rare finding in an adult ...
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 ...
