Chest computed tomography (CT) has been the preferred imaging modality during the pandemic owing to its sensitivity in detecting COVID-19 infections. Recently, a large number of COVID-19 imaging datasets have been deposited in public databases, leading to rapid advances in COVID-19 research. However, the application of these datasets beyond COVID-1...

Chronic stress (CS) can contribute to dysfunction in several organs including liver and kidney. This study was performed to investigate the changes in serum biochemistry, histological structure, as well as in localization of tyrosine phosphorylated proteins (TyrPho) and Heat shock protein 70 (Hsp-70) in liver and kidney tissues of CS rats induced b...

Purpose: Two most common variations of flexor pollicis longus include its accessory head and its connection with the flexor digitorum profundus of the index (Linburg–Comstock variation). In addition, while three-dimensional (3D) screening has widely been used in anatomical education, its use as reporting tool in anatomical research is still limited...
Article
Background: Anconeus epitrochlaeris muscle and Osborne's ligament are anatomical variants that are occasionally found at the cubital tunnel of the elbow. In certain individuals, these two structures may compress the ulnar nerve resulting in a cubital tunnel syndrome. Although these variants have been reported extensively, its prevalence is still un...

Background and Objectives: The landmark for neurosurgical approaches to access brain le-sion is the pterion. The aim of the present study is to classify and examine the prevalence of all types of pterion variations and perform morphometric measurements from previously defined anthropo-logical landmarks. Materials and methods: One-hundred and twenty...
Article
Introduction: Thyroid ima artery is a variant artery found on the anterior surface of the trachea. The aim of this meta-analysis was to obtain pooled prevalence data of the thyroid ima artery and discuss its clinical importance especially for tracheostomy. Methods: A systematic literature search was performed through five electronic databases until...
Article
Introduction: The azygos lobe (AL) is an accessory lobe of the right lung with prevalence between 0.4% and 1.2%. The aim of the present review is to provide a better estimate of the frequency of the AL and to examine its relationships with other variables such as population, diagnostic methods, and co‐occurring illnesses. Materials and methods: Stu...

Porotic hyperostosis (PH) is the expansion of the cranial diploë, generating ‘hair-on-end’ appearance on X-rays. This condition is extremely rare and had a prevalence of 0.08%. It is alternatively known as cribra orbitalia (CO) when the orbital roof is affected. In this study, we describe the gross morphology of two skulls affected by PH and CO. Th...
Article
Eleven demonstration activities for an introductory undergraduate chemistry safety session are described. The first two activities are a safety video and a lab tour. All other activities are drawn from popular demonstrations and presented in the context of chemical safety. These include a balloon bursting via toluene, a dry ice fog created in a fum...

Posterior compartment of forearm and hand is among the most variable parts of the human body. During a routine dissection, we found two anatomical variants in the right forearm and hand of an 84-year-old male cadaver including the extensor indicis radialis and the extensor medii proprius associated with a fibromuscular slip. Histological analysis u...

Purpose Anatomical variants in the posterior compartment of forearm and hand are not uncommon. Physicians should be aware of variations in this region for correct diagnosis and treatment of diseased hands. Methods During a routine dissection at our department, an extremely rare case of deep hand extensor muscle was discovered. Results A complete ex...
Article
Forty anatomy articles were sampled from English Wikipedia and assessed quantitatively and qualitatively. Quantitatively, each article's edit history was analyzed by Wikipedia X‐tools, references and media were counted manually, and two readability indices were used to evaluate article readability. This analysis revealed that each article was updat...

Purpose: The aim of the study was to investigate the anatomy and histology of Linburg-Comstock variation, or the anomalous connection between flexor pollicis longus and flexor digitorum profundus to the index finger, in Thai population. Methods: One hundred and thirty cadaveric upper limbs were dissected. Skin and superficial fascia on the anter...
Article
We discuss a pilot implementation of Wikipedia writing assignments in three chemistry courses at the Mahidol University International College. Thirty eight out of 70 undergraduate students opted to write articles relating to their classes on the English Wikipedia as an alternative to a paper-based exam. As part of the assignments, 64 articles were...
Article
Full-text available
A total of 100 cadaveric limbs were dissected to study the anatomy of the forearm and hand extensor musculature. Four types of contributions to the index finger were found for the extensor indicis proprius (EIP), including one new type where the double tendons of the EIP inserts volar and radial to the extensor digitorum communis of the index finge...
Article
Full-text available
The horseshoe kidney is a congenital fusion anomaly where both kidneys are fused at the lower poles. We report a case of horseshoe kidney in a 70 year-old Thai cadaver. This horseshoe kidney was associated with malformations of renal hila, sinuses, calyces and supernumerary arterial supplies from the dorsal part of the kidney. To our knowledge, the...

Duplication of the inferior vena cava was detected in a 71-year-old Thai male cadaver with unknown cause of death. Two inferior vena cavae located on each side of the lumbar vertebrae were identified. The right inferior vena cava was formed by fusion of the right and left common iliac veins and had a normal course, while the left inferior vena cava...
