The Neural Pathways for the Hypothetic Nociceptive-Sympathetic Coupling of NBA for Pain Sensation

Zi-Jian Cai
In May 2016, it was suggested by the US athletes playing games of National Basketball Association (NBA) in television that the pain sensation might result from the post-sensory nociceptive-sympathetic coupling. In this re-view, it is attempted to newly delineate the underlying neural pathways for this post-sensory nociceptive-sympathetic coupling. Based on the con-temporary feedback neural circuits of pain transmission in spinal c

Lip Print Characteristics in Anatolian Population: Baskent University Sample

Can Pelin, Hale Oktem, Ayla Kurkcuoglu, Hulya Olmus
Background: Identification is of importance for any crime investigation. Among several other methods, lip prints, if available, should also be evalu-ated to point out the relationship between the individual and the committed crimes. Lip print evaluation is known as “cheiloscopy” and important for forensic anthropologists in identification process since they are unique for each individual as fingerprints. Sex estimation is from lip

Prevalence of Septum Pellucidum Variations: A Retrospective Study

Hale Oktem, Alper Dilli, Ayla Kurkcuoglu, Can Pelin
Background: The septum pellucidum is a vertical double membrane, extending from the lower surface of the corpus callosum to the fornix. Cavum septi pellu-cidi (CSP) is a cavity formation between the two membranes that separate the septum pellucidum from the anterior horn of the lateral ventricle. Cavum vergae (CV) is the extension of the cavity between the two leaflets posterior to the splenium of the corpus callosum. In addition,

Effects of Mental Activity on Hand Skill Rate Performance Ability among Second Grader Medical Students

Nimet Unay Gundogan, Erhan Kiziltan, Leyla Aydin, Ersin Ogus
Introduction: Determination of hand skill rate is thought to be important for the functional evaluation of nervous system. Therefore, hand skill performance monitoring could be a reliable measure for the effect of audio-visual medical teaching on central nervous system. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of mental activity on the hand skill rate performance ability following one hour audio-visual medical teaching. Methods: Participants were 34 healthy screened right handed voluntee...

Hemodynamic Forces Effective in Reshaping Vascular Geometry

Erhan Kiziltan
Besides the medical education, simulations became an attractive diagnostic method in some clinical cases. Recent advances in computerized image processing bring new practices entitled as “patient specific simulation” to the agenda. One of the successful applications which examines hemodynamic forces as a result of the interaction between blood flow and vessel wall constitutes the topic of this study. In this study, the terms and laws which provided a theoretical basis for the hemodynamic forces ...

An Auxiliary Educational Tool for Propagating Single and Compound Nerve Action Potential

Erhan Kiziltan, Nimet Unay Gundogan, Ayse Sebnem Ilhan, Leyla Aydin, Nuray Yazihan, Ferit Pehlivan
Objective: The use of simulation in medical education has become an important and successfully implemented auxiliary method, recently. In this study, we aimed to present a compact screen- based computer simulation for second year medical students so that they may experience various aspects of peripheral nerve electrophysiology by themselves. Methods: The model used in the calculations combines both the passive and active membrane properties which were described in passive cable theory and in the...

Urinary Anomalies in Fetus with Neural Tube Defects

Suelen F. Costa, Helce R. Julio-Junior, Fabio Bernardo, Francisco J. B. Sampaio, Luciano A. Favorito
Background: The objective of this study is to analyze the incidence of congenital urogenital malformations in human fetuses with neural tube defects (NTDs). Methods: We studied 320 human fetuses (214 males and 106 female) ranged in age from 12 to 35 weeks post-conception (WPC). The fetuses were carefully dissected with the aid of a stereoscopic lens with 16/25× magnification. The abdomen and pelvis were opened to identify and expose the urogenital organs. We studied the incidence of renal, urete...

Bone Healing by the Use of Intramedullary Pinning in Dogs

Bouknine Asma, Boudra Abdellatif, Hamdi Mohame, Hamri Mokhtar, Rezki Hamza

Femur is the most commonly fractured bone in dogs. This work is interested in the technical aspects of ostheosythesis with intramedullary pinning, and a quality of functional and bone healing results. Our experimentation involved the use of four healthy male dogs, by causing a transverse osteotomy in the mid shapt of in the left femur, with clinical and radiological follow established. Our results show that the intramedullary pinning is the most secure m

Asymptomatic Anomalous Collateral Artery Derived from the Left Internal Thoracic Artery: Established Strong Collateral Circulation

Patrick J. Buchanan,Olga Malakhova
An anomalous collateral artery was found during the dissection for the pectoralis major myocutaneous flap procedure. This anomalous collateral artery was stemming from the left internal thoracic artery. It is believed that this collateral was formed secondary to congenital aortic coarctation causing abnormal growth of the left fourth aortic arch. This is the first reported case of such a collateral artery in recent literature.
