The cadaver of a Caucasian man with a supernumerary fourth dorsal interosseous muscle in the right hand: a case report


, : The cadaver of a Caucasian man with a supernumerary fourth dorsal interosseous muscle in the right hand: a case report. Journal of Medical Case Reports 5(): 393-393

The human hand is a complex anatomic entity consisting of many muscles, nerves, and vessels, thus providing a special ability to perform accurate and meticulous movements. In this group of muscles are the four dorsal interosseous muscles. A distinct supernumerary fourth dorsal interosseous muscle was found in the right hand of the cadaver of a 76-year-old Caucasian man without any other concomitant abnormality. The presence of such an additional muscle in the hand should be considered in the management of hand deformities, whether the treatment is conservative or surgical.

The Tasik Bera mire system represents deposition of peat and peaty sediments within a dendritic fluvial drainage basin in the humid tropics. As such, it serves as an analogue for the earliest stages of coal deposition in low-relief topogenous coal...

We investigated the ultrastructural localization of alpha 1-syntrophin and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in normal human skeletal myofibers and analyzed their relation to each other and to dystrophin using single and double immunogold-labe...

We have identified Nix, a homolog of the E1B 19K/Bcl-2 binding and pro-apoptotic protein Nip3. Human and murine Nix have a 56 and 53% amino acid identity to human and murine Nip3, respectively. The carboxyl terminus of Nix, including a transmembra...

We propose a scheme whereby a time domain fractional Fourier transform (FRFT) is used to post process the optical chaotic carrier generated by an electro-optic oscillator. The time delay signature of the delay dynamics is successfully masked by th...
