Surfactant and its components have multiple functions. The so called collectins are surfactant proteins which opsonize bacteria and improve pulmonary host defense via the phagocytosis and clearance of microorganisms and particles. In this special issue of the Annals of Anatomy a new surfactant protein, Surfactant Associated 3, is highlighted. As outlined in this mini review Surfactant Associated 3 is regarded as an enhancer of phagocytosis. In addition, the role played by SP-A is updated and open research questions raised...

East Asian rhinoplasty is an expanding topic in the field of rhinoplasty. Although the main principles of various rhinoplasty techniques apply equally to the East Asian nose, East Asian rhinoplasty is unique owing to its different anatomy and ethnicity. In recent years, there have been some noteworthy developments in East Asian rhinoplasty. Traditional techniques using alloplastic implants with endonasal approach are changing due to the advent of new beauty concept, introduction of new techniques, and development of newly improved materials expended polytetrafluoroethylene as an alloplastic material has gained popularity in Asian augmentation rhinoplasty...

Fixation of the entire bodies or individual organs, and later as well tissues and cellular structures, was and still is often a challenge for anatomists and histologists. Technique that combines extensive knowledge of natural sciences, as well as technical skills, was by those best researchers as Frederik Ruysch, brought to perfection. Preparations, if done with care and talent, are really propelling progress in anatomical studies and determining the quality of education for medical students and young physicians...

Heinrich von Eggeling (1869-1954), professor of anatomy in Breslau from 1922, was secretary of the Anatomische Gesellschaft (AG) from 1919 until 1949 and also editor of the Anatomischer Anzeiger, today's Annals of Anatomy. His "Wissenschaftlicher Nachlass [scientific estate]" could recently be located in private hands and has now been made available at the archive of the AG held by the current secretary. It consists of 45 folders, mainly containing von Eggeling's national and international correspondence from 1919 to 1953...

Johann Baptist Ritter von Spix (1781-1826), a German zoologist, was famous in his time and highly honored after making one of the first exploration voyages in the wildest part of Brazil. He was almost forgotten in the annals of history for nearly two centuries after his birth, at which time some enlightened biographers brought him back into prominence in both the biological and zoological fields. On the contrary though, he had never been forgotten in the science of odontostomatology thanks to his discovery of the "Lingula Mandibularis" also known as "Spine of Spix"...

The statistical survey of 1 385 french titles, starting with annales, journal or revue, helps to understand the development of "scientific" journals in France from the beginning of the 19(th) century until today. This 200 years history provides perspectives about the growth and decline of publishing. It includes scientific titles within the publishing production and underscores the importance of stimulation of the flow of ideas and information, through frequency and growth analysis.

Functional–structural plant models (FSPMs) explore and integrate relationships between a plant’s structure and processes that underlie its growth and development. In recent years, the range of topics being addressed by scientists interested in functional–structural plant modelling has expanded greatly. FSPM techniques are now being used to dynamically simulate growth and development occurring at the microscopic scale involving cell division in plant meristems to the macroscopic scales of whole plants and plant communities...

To investigate the feasibility of lung ventilation-based treatment planning, computed tomography and hyperpolarized (HP) helium-3 (He-3) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ventilation images of 6 subjects were coregistered for intensity-modulated radiation therapy planning in Tomotherapy. Highly-functional lungs (HFL) and less-functional lungs (LFL) were contoured based on their ventilation image intensities, and a cylindrical planning-target-volume was simulated at locations adjacent to both HFL and LFL. Annals of an anatomy-based plan (Plan 1) and a ventilation-based plan (Plan 2) were generated...

We present a survey of the introduction and evolution of microscopy techniques in Spain, and the concepts and lines of research developed around this instrument, particularly in the field of Biomedical research. We cover in our article the long period from the XVII Century to the arrival of the great figure of Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1853-1934). We particularly want to mention many of the previously neglected pioneers who certainly paved the route for his discoveries and, we believe that without them, he would never have arrived to his important position in the annals of Biology and Medicine...

De Humani Corporis Fabrica (1543), by the Belgian anatomy master Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564), represents one of the most advanced surgical revolutions in history. The creation of an anatomy book that carefully and systematically introduced the structure of the human body in a way that was truthful to the findings of human dissection had never been accomplished before. No one challenged Galen's teachings as Vesalius did. De Humani Corporis Fabrica offered to the surgeon's world new knowledge and a systematic approach to human anatomy...

Citation and quotation errors are common in medical journals. We assessed the prevalence of those errors in gross anatomy journals, where articles often cite old anatomical studies. The study included 199 randomly selected references from articles published in the first 2001 issue of three major gross anatomy journals: Annals of Anatomy, Clinical Anatomy, and Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy. The selected references were checked for accuracy against the original articles. Citation errors were classified as major, intermediate, and minor...

Dr. Niko Miljanic anatomist and surgeon, ordinary professor of the Medical Faculty in Belgrade, had been managing there the anatomy teaching during the period 1920-1934, then held lectures on surgery propedeutics since 1935 till 1947, when being a principled person with the moral sense for the profession and his task as an university professor, after his action as a member of the committee for Election of the Medical Faculty Teachers, he was relieved in 1954 year from the faculty. Professor Miljanic was the author of our first textbooks of anatomy, a monography on asepsis as well as a lot of scientific articles on anatomy and surgery in different journals at home and abroad...

A pupil and then the successor of Vesalius to the Chair of Anatomy and Surgery at the University of Padua, Matteo Realdo Colombo (1516-1559) was equally consumed by the flame of scientific inquiry and recognition. His sole contribution to the literature, De Re Anatomica, was published after his death in 1559. In it, he correctly describes the position of the right kidney as lower than that of the left and provides the best description of the pulmonary circulation before that of William Harvey, who in his text duly acknowledged Colombo's contributions...
