  • StatPearls: Anatomy, Abdomen and Pelvis, Conjoint Tendon (Inguinal Aponeurotic Falx) [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Jiang Jay J University of Nebraska Medical Center Koay Jennifer J West Virginia University School of Med. BOOK
  • The conjoint tendon, also known as the inguinal aponeurotic falx or Henle's ligament, is a condensation of tissue that runs through the lateral edge of the lower rectus sheath. It is located in the inferior abdomen and is formed from the common aponeurosis of the internal oblique muscle and transverse abdominis muscle, although they can be separated.[1] The fibers turn inferiorly and insert into …
  • [Perineal ulcerations revealing Crohn's disease]. [Journal Article]
    Pan Afr Med J. 2019; 33:231.Agharbi FZ
  • The whole of the lesions associated with Crohn's disease affecting the anal canal, the skin of the perineum, the bottom-rectum and the recto vaginal septum are referred to as anoperineal lesions of Crohn's disease. The main types of primary lesions include ulcerations, suppurations and stenoses. Crohn's disease-like anoperineal lesions are often suspected in patients with severe inflammatory proc…
  • Large pelvic tubercle in orangutans relates to the adductor longus muscle. [Journal Article]
    PeerJ. 2019; 7:e7273.Shearer BM, Muchlinski M, Hammond AS
  • Orangutan pelves commonly exhibit a large, projecting tubercle in the iliopubic region, historically assumed to homologous to the pubic tubercle in humans. However, it is not clear whether this tubercle is a unique feature of Pongo, or if it is anatomically homologous with the human pubic tubercle when considered as a soft tissue attachment point. To clarify this issue, we dissected orangutan and…
  • The fascial connections of the pectineal ligament. [Journal Article]
    Clin Anat. 2019 Oct; 32(7):961-969.Steinke H, Wiersbicki D, … Osterhoff G
  • In clinical settings, the pectineal ligament forms a basic landmark for surgical approaches. However, to date, the detailed fascial topography of this ligament is not well understood. The aim of this study was to describe the morphology of the pectineal ligament including its fascial connections to surrounding structures. The spatial-topographical relations of 10 fresh and embalmed specimens were…
  • Nerve distribution in myocardium including the atrial and ventricular septa in late stage human fetuses. [Journal Article]
    Anat Cell Biol. 2019 Mar; 52(1):48-56.Cho KH, Kim JH, … Chai OH
  • Few information had been reported on deep intracardiac nerves in the myocardium of late human fetuses such as nerves at the atrial-pulmonary vein junction and in the atrial and ventricular septa. We examined histological sections of the heart obtained from 12 human fetuses at 25-33 weeks. A high density of intracardiac nerves was evident around the mitral valve annulus in contrast to few nerves a…
  • StatPearls: Adductor Strain [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Kiel John J University of Florida College of Medicine - Jacksonville Kaiser Kimberly K University of Kentucky BOOK
  • Adductor strain or injury to the adductor muscle group is a common cause of medial leg and groin pain, especially among athletes. The adductor complex includes the three adductor muscles (longus, magnus, and brevis) of which the adductor longus is most commonly injured. All three muscles primarily provide adduction of the thigh. Adductor longus provides some medial rotation. The adductor magnus a…
  • StatPearls: Anatomy, Abdomen and Pelvis, Femoral Sheath [BOOK]
    . StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Mahabadi Navid N A.T. Still University Lew Valerie V Riverside Community Hospital Kang Michael M University of California Riverside School of Medicine BOOK
  • The femoral sheath is a structure within bilateral femoral triangles. The femoral sheath contains the femoral vein, artery, and lymphatics. The femoral nerve lies lateral to the femoral sheath and is not enclosed within the sheath.[1][2] Anatomy The femoral sheath attaches superiorly to the inguinal and lacunar ligaments and resides completely in the thigh. The femoral sheath is funnel-shaped, bl…
  • Transanal Minimally Invasive Anal Canal Polyp Resection. [Case Reports]
    Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech. 2018 Apr; 28(2):e59-e61.Dapri G, Fabres AC, … Van Gossum M
  • Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) are operative endoscopies that have been performed since a long time. Recently, an evolution of laparoscopy called transanal minimally invasive surgery began to be popularized, and it can be adopted in the face of difficult cases for EMR/ESD. In this video, a 36-year-old woman was submitted to transanal minimally invasi…
  • Blood motion: turbulent or laminar? [Journal Article]
    Wiad Lek. 2017; 70(2 pt 2):331-334.Stepanchuk AP
  • The issue on the mode of blood motion in the bloodstream, where the arterial and venous flow is significantly different, has been of greater concern recently. However, the conclusions are largely based on the analysis of the geometric orientation in the wall of arteries of smooth muscle elements. The aim of our study was to examine the characteristics of the prominent configuration of cardial cav…
  • Biomechanical characteristics of fixation methods for floating pubic symphysis. [Journal Article]
    J Orthop Surg Res. 2017 Mar 07; 12(1):38.Song W, Zhou D, He Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: The present study showed the biomechanical advantages of internal fixation methods for FPS from a finite element view. Superior stabilization of the anterior pelvic ring and fracture gaps was obtained by internal fixation. Subcutaneous fixation had satisfactory outcomes as well. Sub-rod fixation offered good anti-compression, while the Sub-plate fixation provided favorable anti-rotational capacity.
  • Clinical outcomes in women undergoing laparoscopic hysteropexy: A systematic review. [Review]
    Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol. 2017 Jan; 208:71-80.Nair R, Nikolopoulos KI, Claydon LS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic hysteropexy was associated with good anatomic cure rates of greater than 90% in majority of the studies. There was an improvement in symptoms, and good subjective cure rates in 73%-100% of the patients. Reoperation rates were low in most studies ranging from around 0%-28%. Complications rates were generally low. Laparoscopic hysteropexy is a feasible alternative for women needing surgical correction of uterovaginal prolapse and who desire conservation of the uterus.
  • Laparoscopic Pectopexy: A Biomechanical Analysis. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2016; 11(2):e0144143.Sauerwald A, Niggl M, … Eichler C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Given the data above we must conclude that a continuous suture is not necessary in laparoscopic mesh / ileo-pectineal ligament fixation during pectopexy. Ultimate load and displacement at failure results clearly indicate that a single suture is not inferior to a continuous approach. The use of two single sutures may improve ligamental fixation. However, overall stability should not benefit since the surgical mesh remains the limiting factor.
  • A novel surgical approach for the treatment of tumors in the lesser trochanter. [Journal Article]
    Exp Ther Med. 2015 Jul; 10(1):201-206.Yu Y, Sun X, … Zhou Y
  • The proximal femur is a common location for the development of primary benign bone tumors. However, there is currently no surgical technique designed specifically for treating tumors located in the lesser trochanter. In the present study, a novel procedure was developed for directly exposing the lesser trochanter for surgical intervention. This technique may be particularly suited to treating tum…
  • Laparoscopic trans-peritoneal hernioplasty (TAPP) is useful for obturator hernias: report of a case. [Case Reports]
    Surg Today. 2014 Nov; 44(11):2187-90.Otowa Y, Kanemitsu K, … Kakeji Y
  • A 71-year-old female presented to our hospital due to pain from the right hip joint to the lower abdomen. The pain had suddenly appeared and spontaneously disappeared more than 10 times during the past 2 years. She had visited many hospitals, but remained undiagnosed. The patient underwent a computed tomography (CT) scan of the pelvis, and a soft tissue shadow was seen between the external obtura…
  • Pectineal ligament suspension of prolapsed vaginal vault. [Multicenter Study]
    Int J Gynaecol Obstet. 2013 Oct; 123(1):29-32.Joshi VM, Otiv SR, … Bijwe S
  • CONCLUSIONS: The present study demonstrates the long-term safety and effectiveness of pectineal ligament suspension for vaginal vault prolapse by the open and the laparoscopic routes. As it was done by surgeons of varying experience at centers with varying resources, the procedure can be readily mastered by any gynecologic surgeon.
