Anomalous anastomosis between the external carotid artery and vertebrobasilar artery via the hypoglossal canal: a case report and review of literature.

Surg Radiol Anat 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Neurology, Yokohama Brain and Spine Center, 1-2-1 Takigashira, Isogo-ku, Yokohama, 235-0012, Japan.

We report a case of an anomalous anastomosis formed between the external carotid artery (ECA) and the vertebrobasilar artery (VBA) and passing through the hypoglossal canal. A carotid-vertebrobasilar anastomosis of this kind is typically considered a variant of persistent primitive hypoglossal artery which usually originates from the internal carotid artery. However, the anastomotic vessel in this case had a common trunk with the occipital artery (OA), a remnant of the primitive proatlantal artery. Read More

The adaption of the bony microstructure of the human glenoid cavity as a result of long-term biomechanical loading.

Surg Radiol Anat 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Department of Biomedicine, Musculoskeletal Research, University of Basel, Pestalozzistrasse 20, 4056, Basel, Switzerland.

Structural arrangements of the bony microstructure of a joint through adaptational processes are thought to be determined by the biomechanical demands and its changes. Pursuing this theory of "form follows the biomechanical function", the load distribution of the glenoid cavity, as it is mirrored in its mineralization pattern, should link not only to its thickness distribution, but also will have an impact onto the trabecular network below. To prove and confirm this hypothesis, we analysed the mineral distribution in correlation to the subchondral bone plates thickness and the distribution of architectural parameters of the trabecular network below.

Arcuate foramen: "Anatomical variation shape or adaptation legacy?"

Surg Radiol Anat 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Bretonneau University Hospital, Tonnellé Boulevard 2, Tours, France.

Purpose: The groove of the vertebral artery on the posterior arch of the atlas (sulcus arteriae vertebralis) may become a complete or partial osseous foramen: the arcuate foramen. The presence of a complete or partial arcuate foramen is a rare anatomical variant described in a minority of patients and it seems to be associated with vertigo, vertebro-basilar insufficiency, posterior circulation strokes, and musculoskeletal pain. As the number and morphology of cervical vertebrae is highly preserved, we questioned about its significance from an evolutionary point of view. Read More

Anatomy Department, Hospital de Santa Maria, Instituto de Anatomia, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa, Avenida Professor Egas Moniz, 1649-028, Lisbon, Portugal.

Purpose: In many medical schools, the study of Anatomy is becoming increasingly theoretical owing to the difficulty of having human body parts available, rather than offering the students the possibility of a more realistic and practical approach. We developed a project where we use a 3D printer to produce models of the human skull bones, with high quality and quantity to satisfy the needs for Anatomy classes and to be available for request to study at home.

Methods: We selected regular and well-shaped bones of the head upon which we based the 3D models. Read More
