  • Musculoskeletal Differences Between Amputated and Non-Amputated Lower Limbs 

    Finco, Graci; Finnerty, Cait; Ngo, Wayne; Holley, Bethany; Menegaz, Rachel (2022)
    Purpose: People with lower limb amputations frequently experience greater risks of musculoskeletal injury. Forces active during walking help to develop and maintain the shape, volume, and strength of musculoskeletal tissues. ...
  • A Leak From Within: A Case Report on Flood Syndrome 

    Srivastava, Aman (2022)
    Flood syndrome is a very rare complication that can be found in patients with end-stage liver cirrhosis with concurrent ventral hernias. If the hernia ruptures, ascites can begin to leak uncontrollably from the opening ...
  • Massage application to increase the spread of local anesthesia in sciatic nerve blocks: A cadaver study 

    Robertson, Taylor; Fisher, Cara; Handler, Emma; Nash, Daniel (2022)
    Introduction: Sciatic nerve blocks are essential for surgical treatment of various lower limb pathologies. Due to the complexity and variation of anatomical landmarks, ultrasound (US) guided injection of local anesthesia ...
  • Neurocranial Growth in the OIM Mouse Model of Osteogenesis Imperfecta 

    Husain, Tooba; Miller, Courtney; Steele, Ashley; Gonzales, Lauren; Handler, Emma; Organ, Jason; Menegaz, Rachel (2022)
    Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a disorder of type I collagen characterized by abnormal bone formation and weakened bone architecture. Human patients with OI have larger cranial vaults (macrocephaly), altered cranial base ...
  • Effects of Osteogenesis Imperfecta on the Cochlea and Sensorineural Hearing 

    Huston, Lila Athena; Menegaz, Rachel; Handler, Emma; Organ, Jason; Gonzales, Lauren (2022)
    Background: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a developmental disorder of type I collagen, is known to cause hearing loss in ~ 60% of the diseased population. Identified forms include conductive hearing loss (17.4% of OI ...
  • Unilateral Renal Hypoplasia 

    Wieters, Matthew; Tran, Kylie; Smith, Zane; Thayyil, Hibaa; Weber, Landan; Fisher, Cara (2022)
    Background: Unilateral renal hypoplasia can occur as a result of, or in conjunction with, comorbidities such as hypertension, vascular diseases, pyelonephritis, and congenital developmental disorders. Contralateral renal ...
  • Additive Effects of Diabetes and Lower-Limb Amputation on Osteoarthritis with Comparison to Diabetic and Healthy Controls 

    Ngo, Wayne; Finnerty, Cait; Finco, Malaka; Holley, Bethany; Menegaz, Rachel (2022)
    Purpose: Individuals with type II diabetes and individuals with lower-limb amputation each have increased risks of developing osteoarthritis compared to the general population. Despite the high co-occurrence of type II ...
  • Extensor Tendon Injury Outcomes Based on Zone of Injury 

    Yousuf, Hayyan; Garcia, Laura; Dalton, Stewart; Pientka, William (2022)
    Purpose: Extensor tendons are located on the dorsal surface of the hand, however they lie superficially and are protected only by a thin layer of soft tissue. This makes them vulnerably to injury and morbidity. There are ...
  • Study of Cadaveric Posterior Circumflex Humeral Artery Variations 

    Fajkus, Austin; Do, Tien; Cronk, Jacob; Fisher, Cara (2022)
    Purpose: There are concerns regarding the sequelae of blood clots post-vaccination due to suboptimal administration techniques with the ongoing incentive for vaccination against the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). ...
  • The influence of humidity and precipitation on skeletal morphological variation in East Asia 

    Cho, Elizabeth; Cowgill, Libby; Blomquist, Gregory (2022)
    Human ecogeographic proportions in Europe, Africa, and the Americas are well studied, but Asia remains underrepresented despite its diverse range of climates, latitudinal expanse, and long history of habitation. The monsoon ...
  • Hyposplenia 

    Patterson, Tyler; Ramirez, Cynthia; Park, Chanyang; Sabbaghi, Tiffany; Patel, Kavita; Fisher, Cara (2022)
    Background: The spleen is the largest secondary lymphoid organ in the human body. It is an intraperitoneal organ, located in the left upper quadrant, posterior to the stomach and inferior to the diaphragm from the T8-T11 ...
  • Postweaning Craniofacial Growth in the OIM Mouse Model of Osteogenesis Imperfecta 

    Steele, Ashley T; Mitchell, D. Rex; Organ, Jason; Menegaz, Rachel (2022)
    Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) type III is a severe genetic disorder of type I collagen (Col1) resulting in bone fragility, reduced stature, and impaired craniofacial growth resulting in midface hypoplasia, dental malocclusions, ...
  • CT-based assessment of lower limb surface area, volume, and tissue composition: Implications for ecogeographic rules of thermoregulation 

    Carey, Clay; Maddux, Scott (2022)
    Purpose: Anthropological research into human climatic adaptation has shown that global variation in skin surface-area to body volume (SA/V) ratio is generally consistent with theoretical predictions of ecogeographic rules. ...
  • Virtual reconstruction of 3D skeletal anatomy: A comparison of two methodologies 

    Warner, Amanda; Maddux, Scott; Kelly, Alexa (2022)
    Due to destructive taphonomic processes, human skeletal remains recovered from forensic and archaeological investigations commonly exhibit varying amounts of damage and fragmentation. This damage inherently presents obstacles ...
  • Effects of Osteogenesis Imperfecta on Dental Tissue Volumes in Mice 

    Moore, Jacob; Handler, Emma; Menegaz, Rachel; Gonzales, Lauren; Organ, Jason (2022)
    Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), commonly known as brittle bone disease, is associated with lifelong dental problems, including increased dental fractures, discolored teeth, and malocclusion. OI is a disorder of the type I ...
  • The Effects of Surgical Repair Devices in Middle Aged Adults (50-59 Years of Age) with Femoral Neck Fractures 

    Roser, Thomas; Giga, Kashmeera; Collinge, Cory (2022)
    Purpose: Features of femoral neck fractures vary according to factors including age and mechanism of injury. In older patients (>60 years old), poor bone quality, the inability to limit weight bearing, along with co-morbidities ...
  • Massage application to decrease anesthetic spread in brachial plexus blocks: A cadaveric study 

    Coffman, Taylor; Fisher, Cara; Handler, Emma; Nash, Daniel (2022)
    Introduction: Peripheral nerve blocks of the brachial plexus have become increasingly popular for upper limb surgery due to the benefits of using regional anesthesia. However, anesthetic from supraclavicular nerve blocks ...
  • Unilateral Levator Scapulae Anatomical Variant in Female Cadaver

    Background The levator scapulae (LS) muscle is a superficial extrinsic muscle of the back, most commonly originating on the posterior aspect of the transverse processes of the first through fourth cervical vertebrae and ...
  • Microstructure & Macrostructure Interrelationship in the Growing Hard Palate 

    Miller, Courtney A.; Steele, Ashley; Organ, Jason; Menegaz, Rachel (2022)
    Bone strength is the result of microstructure (bone material properties) and macrostructure (bone size and shape), and deficiencies in either can produce skeletal fragilities with an increased likelihood of injury. The ...
