Report of an unusual combination of arterial, venous and neural variations in a cadaveric upper limb
In this study an unusual combination of arterial, venous and neural variations discovered during dissection of cervical, axillary and brachial area of a cadaver is described. Variations are thoroughly described and literature ...
Anatomical variation and morphology in the position of the palatine foramina in adult human skulls from Greece
Objective: To investigate the anatomical variability of the palatine structures in Greek population. Material and methods: 71 Greek adult dry human skulls were examined to detect the position of the greater palatine (GPF) ...
The habenula in neurosurgery for depression: A convergence of functional neuroanatomy, psychiatry and imaging
Background: The habenula is a small, mostly underrated structure in the pineal region. Multidisciplinary findings demonstrate an underlying complex connectivity of the habenula with the rest of the brain, subserving its ...
CYP8A1 gene polymorphisms and left main coronary artery disease
Background: Left main (LM) disease is rare but the most hazardous phenotype of coronary artery disease (CAD). Thus, early detection of participants at high risk of developing left main coronary heart disease (LM-CAD) is ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
