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 ...
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 ...
Calcitriol Started in the Donor, Expands the Population of CD4+CD25+ T Cells in Renal Transplant Recipients
Objectives: Alloreactive T cells recognize antigens via direct and indirect pathways. The competency of costimulatory molecules on antigen-presenting cells (APC) is important. An active form of vitamin D (1,25(OH)2D3, ...
External landmarks for identifying the drainage site of the vein of Labbé : Application to neurosurgical procedures
Introduction. The vein of Labbé is an important structure of the lateral cortical surface. However, to date, studies aimed at providing external landmarks for aiding in its identification have been scant. Therefore, the ...
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 ...
Histopathological basis for neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome: Laboratory investigation
Object. To the best of the authors' knowledge, no report exists that has demonstrated the histopathological changes of neural elements within the brachial plexus as a result of cervical rib compression. Methods. Four hundred ...
Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis in a patient with brucellosis 
[No abstract available]
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 ...
