The Pterygopalatine Ganglion and its Role in Various Pain Syndromes: From Anatomy to Clinical Practice
The postsynaptic fibers of the pterygopalatine or sphenopalatine ganglion (PPG or SPG) supply the lacrimal and nasal glands. The PPG appears to play an important role in various pain syndromes including headaches, trigeminal ...
Outcome models in peripheral nerve repair: Time for a reappraisal or for a novel?
Peripheral nerve injuries are still underestimated. The complexity of assessment of outcome after nerve injury and repair has been described by many authors. Furthermore, the outcome is influenced by several factors that ...
Uncommon course of the ulnar artery
Tissue-engineered vascularized bone grafts: Basic science and clinical relevance to trauma and reconstructive microsurgery
Bone grafts are an important part of orthopaedic surgeon's armamentarium. Despite well-established bone-grafting techniques, large bone defects still represent a challenge. Efforts have therefore been made to develop ...
Incidence and prevention of thromboembolic events in one stage bilateral total hip arthroplasty: A systematic review
We conducted a thorough search of all the English language literature and carried out a meta-analysis in an attempt to reveal potential differences on the incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) ...
Functional anatomy of the mandibular nerve: Consequences of nerve injury and entrapment
Various anatomic structures including bone, muscle, or fibrous bands may entrap and potentially compress branches of the mandibular nerve (MN). The infratemporal fossa is a common location for MN compression and one of the ...
The plasma coagulation cascade: Potential targets for novel anticoagulants in major lower limb surgery
Strategies for prevention of venous thromboembolism in orthopaedic patients undergoing major lower limb surgery include pharmacological prophylaxis. Over the last three decades, the search for new safe and effective ...
Neuroanatomy of the brachial plexus: Normal and variant anatomy of its formation
The brachial plexus is the complex network of nerves, extending from the neck to the axilla, which supplies motor, sensory, and sympathetic Wbers to the upper extremity. Typically, it is formed by the union of the ventral ...
Promoting Undergraduate Surgical Education: Current Evidence and Students’ Views on ESMSC International Wet Lab Course
Background: Undergraduate Surgical Education is becoming an essential element in the training of the future generation of safe and efficient surgeons. Essential Skills in the Management of Surgical Cases (ESMSC), is an ...
Use of the impedance threshold device improves survival rate and neurological outcome in a swine model of asphyxial cardiac arrest*
OBJECTIVE: To assess whether intermittent impedance of inspiratory gas exchange improves hemodynamic parameters, 48-hr survival, and neurologic outcome in a swine model of asphyxial cardiac arrest treated with active ...
