      Tolulope Orimoloye, Helen (2020)
      Introduction Laboratory work requires the use of potentially hazardous materials, sophisticated equipment, technical operations, and procedures to enhance discoveries. Health and biosafety considerations are made when ...
    • A Literature Review of Velopharyngeal Insufficiency and Stress Velopharyngeal Insufficiency in Wind Players 

      Behel, Kensley (2020)
      A literature review was conducted to evaluate diagnostic tools, as well as surgical and non-surgical reparative options used to diagnose and rehabilitate musicians suffering from velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) in ...
    • Variation in the Origination of the Right Obturator 

      Narayanan, Neeraja (2020)
      Background: Knowing the anatomical location and origins of pelvic vasculature in the human body is imperative while performing laparoscopic procedures to mitigate hemorrhages. The obturator artery is well known for having ...
    • Bilateral Omohyoid Variant 

      Robert Wright, Tommy (2020)
      Background: This case report describes and documents a bilateral anatomical omohyoid variant that was discovered during a routine cadaveric dissection. The omohyoid is one of the infrahyoid muscles consisting of a superior ...
    • Circumaortic Left Renal Vein 

      Ditter, Hannah (2020)
      This case report documents a circumaortic left renal vein (CLRV) observed during a routine dissection of a 65-year-old male cadaver. Two distinct renal veins were observed arising separately from the hilum of the left ...
    • Three Variations of the Dorsal Foot Musculature 

      Wagner, Lianne (2020)
      Introduction: This case report documents a unilateral muscular variation observed in a detailed dissection of the right dorsal surface of the foot in one cadaver. This region involves the extensor digitorum longus, extensor ...
    • Aberrant Extensor Digitorum Tendon Lies Superficial to Extensor Retinaculum 

      Evans, Zachary (2020)
      BACKGROUND: The extensor digitorum muscle (EDM) is located on the posterior aspect of the forearm. The tendons of this muscle typically run deep to the extensor retinaculum (ER) and a fibrous sheath that, not only stabilizes ...
    • A DILATED, TORTUOUS UTERINE ARTERY: GROSS ANATOMICAL VARIANT AND CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE 

      Clark, Chelsea (2020)
      Purpose: Dilated tortuous uterine arteries are associated with multipara, and the resultant decreased blood flow can lead to a multitude of pre- and post-partum complications. We report an anatomical variant, provide ...
    • Surface Projection of the Iliolumbar Ligament 

      Gorski, Richard (2020)
      Surface Projection of the Iliolumbar Ligament Purpose: The iliolumbar ligament (ILL) is often a weak structure when one makes a sudden trunk side-bend or twisting motion, but its surface projection has not been reported ...
    • Modern Day Osteometrics: Testing the Concordance of Postcranial Measurements Collected Manually vs. Digital Methods 

      Tadlock, Johnathan (2020)
      The use of medical imaging (CT/MRI) modalities for the collection of osteometric data has become increasingly common in anatomical research. However, the relative accuracy of skeletal measurements collected using these ...
    • Levator Glandulae Thyroideae 

      Blackwood, Taylor (2020)
      Background: Levator Glandulae Thyroideae (LGT) is an accessory fibromuscular band that originates from the hyoid bone and inserts on the thyroid gland. It is an embryological remnant of contested origin and functions in ...
    • Anatomical Variation in a Deep Back Muscle and Possible Implications 

      Floyd, Jillian (2020)
      Background: The longissimus thoracis muscle is a part of the erector spinae muscle group, originating from the thoracolumbar fascia, and inserting onto the transverse processes of the first through twelfth thoracic vertebrae. ...
