  • [Anatomy of the skull]. [Historical Article]
    Orvostort Kozl 2010; 56(1-4):97-119Pásztor E
  • The anatomy of the human body based on a special teleological system is one of the greatest miracles of the world. The skull's primary function is the defence of the brain, so every alteration or disease of the brain results in some alteration of the skull. This analogy is to be identified even in the human embryo. Proportions of the 22 bones constituting the skull and of sizes of sutures are not…
  • Theodor Kocher's craniometer. [Historical Article]
    Neurosurgery 2009; 64(5):1001-4; discussion 1004-5Schültke E
  • The first half of the 20th century witnessed the rapid emergence of neurological surgery as a surgical subspecialty. Only few surgeons made a name for themselves equally in general surgery and neurological surgery. One of them was the Swiss surgeon Theodor Kocher (1841-1917). He was honored with the Nobel Prize for his innovative approaches to pathology and surgery of the thyroid gland. Kocher al…
  • Estimation of fetal shoulder width by measurement of the humerospinous distance by ultrasound. [Journal Article]
    Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 1996; 7(4):272-4Riska A, Laine H, … Kariniemi V
  • The present study was undertaken to find a practical method for estimating the fetal shoulder width by ultrasound. Sixty pregnant women at term were included in the study. The distance between the lateral margin of the fetal cartilaginous caput humeri and the processus spinosus of the cervical vertebra C7 (humerospinous distance) was measured by ultrasound. The neonatal shoulder width was measure…
  • A diagnostic craniometric method for determining occlusal vertical dimension. [Journal Article]
    J Prosthet Dent 1994; 71(6):568-74Chou TM, Moore DJ, … Glaros AG
  • There is no precise scientific method for determining the correct edentulous occlusal vertical dimension. This study established the proportion between the ear-eye to chin-nose distance for determining reasonable occlusal vertical dimension. Two hundred white and 400 Asian men and women participated in this study. The ear-eye and chin-nose distances were measured with a modified craniometer. The …
  • [Craniopantograph--an instrument for determination of orbit shape]. [Journal Article]
    Czas Stomatol 1990; 43(2):91-3Reymond J, Piasecki K, Wanyura H
  • The authors describe the structure of principles of function of a measuring-recording instruments, so called craniopantograph. The instrument of own design serves for examination of the spatial variability of the orbit. The obtained measurements of the internal shape of the orbit can be processed later by microcomputer technique. For construction of craniopantograph the principles of function of …
