The inferolateral triangle is a surgical skull base triangle used as a neurosurgical landmark. There are few reports of its measurements with little attention paid to anatomical variations. The inferolateral triangle was measured in ten adult human …

BACKGROUND: The anatomy of the clavicle is specific and varied in reference to its topography and shape. These anatomic characteristics play an important role in the open treatment of clavicle fractures. The complex and variable topography creates …

Improvements in three-dimensional imaging technologies have renewed interest in the study of functional and ecological morphology. Quantitative approaches to shape analysis are used increasingly to study form-function relationships. These methods are…

Spinal accessory nerve injury results in a debilitating shoulder dysfunction. The trapezius is a major suspensory muscle of the shoulder girdle, and paralysis results in chronic pain and debility from disruption of synchronous scapulohumeral rhythm.…

Background: We evaluated a percutaneous, computed tomographic, stabilization from S1 to S2, for chronic painful sacroiliac disease. Our hypothesis was that this technique carries low morbidity, and may provide substantial relief of recalcitrant…

P>Although there are several isolated references to the olfactory anatomy of mysticetes, it is usually thought that olfaction is rudimentary in this group. We investigated the olfactory anatomy of bowhead whales and found that these whales have a…

Embryonic development in dolphins retrofits a land-adapted body for life in the sea. But the rarity of preserved specimens stymies students and researchers who want to study, say, how the forelimbs morph into flippers. Aimed at filling this gap is…

We studied the histology and morphometrics of the hairs of bowhead whales (Balaena mysticetus). These whales are hairless except for two patches of more than 300 hairs on the rostral tip of the lower lip and chin, the rostral tip of the upper lip,…
