  • Muscle spindles of the rat sternomastoid muscle. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Transl Myol. 2018 Nov 02; 28(4):7904.Giuriati W, Ravara B, … Nori A
  • The sternomastoid (SM) muscle in rodents presents a peculiar distribution of fiber types with a steep gradient from the ventral, superficial, white portion to the dorsal, deep, red region, where muscle spindles are restricted. Cross section of the medial longitudinal third of the rat SM contains around 10,000 muscle fibers with a mean diameter of 51.28±12.62 (μm +/- SD). Transverse sections stain…
  • Revisiting the peculiar regional distribution of muscle fiber types in rat Sternomastoid Muscle. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Transl Myol. 2018 Jan 12; 28(1):7302.Ravara B, Gobbo V, … Patruno M
  • The sternomastoid (SM) muscle in rodents is known to have a peculiar distribution of fiber types with a steep gradient from surface to deep region. We here further characterize this peculiar regional distribution by quantitative histochemical morphometrys. In Hematoxylin-Eosin (H-E) stained transverse cryosections harvested in the medial portion of the muscle we counted around 10.000 myofibers wi…
  • Late Dacron Patch Inflammatory Reaction after Carotid Endarterectomy. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg. 2017 Oct; 54(4):423-429.Alawy M, Tawfick W, … Sultan S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Late wound complications after CEA may be related to inflammatory reaction of the Dacron patch rather than infection. Infection should be excluded first. Reconstruction with vein is effective. However, debridement with sternomastoid and omohyoid muscle covering of the patch may be considered in high risk patients after exclusion of infection with regular follow-up.
  • Level I lymph node involvement in patients with N1b papillary thyroid carcinoma: a prospective study. [Journal Article]
    Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol. 2017 Apr; 274(4):1951-1958.Eweida AM, Sakr MF, … Nabawi AS
  • Most of the studies on the incidence, pattern, and predictive factors of lymph node (LN) metastasis with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) have been performed retrospectively and no common consensus has been reached regarding the predictors for the involvement of level I LNs. This study was conducted prospectively to determine the incidence and the possible predictors of level I involvement in N1…
  • Bilateral four heads of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. [Case Reports]
    Surg Radiol Anat. 2015 Sep; 37(7):871-3.Kim SY, Jang HB, … Yoon SP
  • The sternocleidomastoid muscle shows a wide range of variations including supernumerary muscular heads. We found a rare variation in the sternocleidomastoid muscle with bilateral supernumerary heads in a 67-year-old Korean male cadaver. Bilateral four muscle bellies were recorded: two sternomastoids, one cleido-occipital and one cleido-mastoid occipital on the right side, and one sternomastoid, o…
  • Giant neurilemmoma of the vagus nerve: a case report and review of literature. [Case Reports]
    J Indian Med Assoc. 2012 Dec; 110(12):926-8.Dhull AK, Kaushal V, … Kataria SP
  • Cervical vagal neurilemmomas are rare, usually asymptomatic, slow-growing tumours and defined as a benign, encapsulated neoplasm that arises in the nerve fibre. Magnetic resonant imaging (MRI) plays a central role in diagnosing vagal nerve neoplasm and in fact, provides important pre-operative information useful in planning optimal surgical treatment. A rare case of giant neurilemmoma is presente…
  • First branchial arch fistula: diagnostic dilemma and improvised surgical management. [Case Reports]
    Am J Otolaryngol. 2011 Nov-Dec; 32(6):617-9.Prabhu V, Ingrams D
  • First branchial cleft anomalies are uncommon, and only sporadic case reports are published in the literature. They account for 1% to 8% of all the branchial abnormalities. The often variable presentation and tract siting of first arch fistulae have led to misdiagnosis. The misdiagnosis results in inappropriate/ineffective treatment and recurrence of the sinus tract. We present a 19-year-old woman…
  • Target muscles for retrograde gene delivery to specific spinal cord segments. [Journal Article]
    Neurosci Lett. 2008 Apr 11; 435(1):1-6.Nakajima H, Uchida K, … Baba H
  • Targeted retrograde gene delivery into the injured spinal cord is less invasive for the damaged tissue. One of the advantages of this approach is the possible selection of target organs according to the level of spinal cord injury. We evaluated nine candidate target organs for retrograde delivery of an adenovirus vector carrying beta-galactosidase (AdV-LacZ) gene to cervical, thoracic and lumbar …
  • MHC-based fiber type and E-C coupling characteristics in mechanically skinned muscle fibers of the rat. [Journal Article]
    Am J Physiol Cell Physiol. 2003 Jun; 284(6):C1448-59.Goodman C, Patterson M, Stephenson G
  • In this study, we investigated whether the previously established differences between fast- and slow-twitch single skeletal muscle fibers of the rat, in terms of myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform composition and contractile function, are also detectable in excitation-contraction (E-C) coupling. We compared the contractile responsiveness of electrophoretically typed, mechanically skinned single fib…
  • Multiple muscular variations in the neck region--case study. [Case Reports]
    Folia Morphol (Warsz). 2002; 61(4):317-9.Coskun N, Yildirim FB, Ozkan O
  • During routine educational dissection studies, we encountered multiple muscular anomalies in a 25-year-old embalmed male cadaver. The muscular anomalies were observed on the right side. In accordance with their origin, insertion and innervation features, the abnormal muscles were considered sternocleidooccipital, sternomastoid and cleidomastoid muscles. The unilateral muscle variations were obser…
  • [Reconstruction of perforating defects of the maxillofacial region with double flaps]. [Case Reports]
    Zhonghua Zheng Xing Shao Shang Wai Ke Za Zhi. 1999 Mar; 15(2):123-5.Wang Y, Lan X, Li R
  • CONCLUSIONS: A number of flaps can be used for repairing the full thickness defects of the maxillofacial region, especially the deltopectoral flap, the platysma myocutaneous flap and the pectoralis major myocutaneous flap. They can provide excellent external cover or internal lining. They are well vascularized, hairless and colour-matched.
  • Epidemiology, presentation and management of congenital muscular torticollis. [Journal Article]
    Singapore Med J. 1999 Nov; 40(11):675-9.Ho BC, Lee EH, Singh K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Birth trauma appears to be the main aetiological factor in congenital muscular torticollis. Patients generally respond well to physiotherapy. This study revealed 2 findings hitherto unreported: (1) mandibular hypoplasia may be an useful early sign of this condition, and (2) the side affected may depend on the side of shoulder delivered first. More studies, however, are required to confirm these findings.
  • [A case of myotonic dystrophy showing proximal dominant muscle involvement but not myotonia]. [Case Reports]

  • A 45-year-old female had progressive difficulty in climbing stairs and standing from a chair for 10 years. She had binocular cataracts which were operated at the age of 42 years. On examination, she had marked muscle wasting in the proximal limbs, scapular and sternomastoid muscles. She presented as marked muscle weakness in the proximal portion of the lower extremities and moderate in the upper …
  • Thymopharyngeal duct cyst: MR imaging of a third branchial arch anomaly in a neonate. [Case Reports]
    J Magn Reson Imaging. 1994 Jul-Aug; 4(4):614-6.Vade A, Griffiths A, … Husain AN
  • Third branchial arch anomalies are rare. The authors present a case report of a neonate with a rapidly growing neck mass due to cystic dilation of a persistent thymopharyngeal duct, which is a derivative of the third branchial arch. The presence of thyroid and thymic tissue in the cyst wall, the communication of the cyst with the piriform sinus, and the relationship of the cyst to carotid vessels…
  • Neural regulation of muscle acetylcholinesterase is exerted on the level of its mRNA. [Journal Article]
    J Neurosci Res. 1994 Jun 15; 38(3):294-9.Cresnar B, Crne-Finderle N, … Sketelj J
  • In rat muscles, AChE activity drops rapidly after denervation, and the patterns of AChE molecular forms in slow and fast muscles differ considerably. Both observations imply that muscle AChE is regulated by the motor nerve. In order to obtain a better insight into the underlying mechanism, AChE regulation in rat muscles was examined on the level of its catalytic subunit mRNA using northern blot a…
  • Neural cell adhesion molecule in aged mouse muscle. [Journal Article]
    Neuroscience. 1992; 48(1):237-48.Kobayashi H, Robbins N, Rutishauser U
  • Expression of the neural cell adhesion molecule was compared in endplate and non-endplate regions of skeletal muscles of mature and old CBF-1 mice, in order to determine whether age-related changes in neuromuscular morphology were correlated with age changes in neural cell adhesion molecule expression. Three muscles were examined: two (soleus and sternomastoid) showed age-related regionalization …
  • Postnatal changes in capillary density of rat sternomastoid muscle. [Journal Article]
    Am J Physiol. 1989 Jul; 257(1 Pt 2):H344-7.Hansen-Smith FM, Watson L, Joswiak GR
  • The changes in muscle capillarity during postnatal growth have been difficult to study using standard histochemical methods. This laboratory has proposed the use of a lectin, Griffonia simplicifolia I (GSI), as a histochemical marker that may be appropriate for developing muscle. The purpose of the study was to compare the capillary densities (capillaries per muscle fiber) determined by the GSI l…
  • Motor organization of the spinal accessory nerve in the monkey. [Journal Article]
    Brain Res. 1988 Feb 16; 441(1-2):352-6.Jenny A, Smith J, Decker J
  • The segmental and topographical organization of motoneurons of the spinal accessory nerve was studied in monkeys with horseradish peroxidase (HRP). The sternomastoid muscle is innervated primarily from the C1-C2 level of the cord and the motor column is medial in the ventral horn. The trapezius muscle, however, is innervated primarily from the C2-C3-C4 levels of the cord and the motor column lies…
  • Development of a tooth germ within an autogenous clavicular graft. [Case Reports]
    J Craniomaxillofac Surg. 1988 Feb; 16(2):93-6.King NM, Chik FF, Ma G
  • The left side of the mandible distal to the second primary molar of a 3 years old Southern Chinese boy was resected as a result of osteomyelitis. A diaphyseal clavicular graft pedicled on the sternomastoid muscle was selected for the reconstruction of the mandible. By the age of 6 years, the mandible although stunted in size did exhibit appropriate remodelling. In addition a tooth germ in the reg…
  • High-frequency oscillations in human electromyograms during voluntary contractions. [Journal Article]
    J Neurophysiol. 1986 Aug; 56(2):542-53.Bruce EN, Ackerson LM
  • Spectral analysis was used to identify correlated sinusoidal frequency components in left and right side diaphragm electromyographic (EMG) recordings from human subjects during voluntary deep inspirations. In 31 of 33 subjects bilaterally correlated high-frequency oscillations were found in broad or narrow bands in the range of 60-84 and 16-40 Hz. To determine if such oscillations were associated…
