Questions related to Gross Anatomy
In order to visualize the vessels of cadaver, i'm using colored latex. After filling the vessels latex remains fluid. During the dissection, fluid latex sometimes comes out of the cut vessels. How to harden the colored latex?
Any specifics related to the numerous variations found? Particularly on the side of the Hemi and Accessory Hemi azygos vein.
is identification of complicated appendicitis still an unexplored part in our journey of managing appendicitis or there are some variables that we have finally found out? kindly give references for what you say. Thanks.
Have you noticed that, in Human cultures, qualitative leaps strictly relate to times when human dissection is performed?
I think, of course, of the Egyptian and ancient Greek culture, or the Renaissance times, in which Art in general, and Medical knowledge in particular, evolved in parallel with the improvements of anatomical techniques and cadaveric preservation.
Can anyone help me find more absolute facts and arguments to proceed with our quest to maintain the habit of human dissection in Modern medical curricula?
Thank you for your kind collaboration, even if you disagree...
And you, who say that it would be better to watch an anatomist at work than to see these drawings, you would be right, if it were possible to observe all the things which are demonstrated in such drawings in a single figure, in which you, with all your cleverness will not see nor obtain knowledge of more than a few veins, to obtain a true and perfect knowledge of which I have dissected more than ten human bodies, destroying all the other members, and removing the very minutest particles of the flesh by which these veins are surrounded, without causing them to bleed, excepting the insensible bleeding of the capillary veins; and one single body would not last long, since it was necessary to proceed with several bodies by degrees, until I came to an end and had a complete knowledge; this I repeated twice, to learn the differences. »
LEONARDO DA VINCI - Notebooks - On Anatomy
Good day. I am interested on how one can accurately measure the Q-angle on cadavers, if this is even possible. Also, if possible, state the name of the article that supports this notion.
Can anyone please help in providing different techniques for dissection of the Nodal arteries in order to determine their origin.
I am currently doing it according to the attached article but I have seen that the procedure doesn't work on every specimen.
If you have experience in these type of dissections please elaborate on your technique.
