Multiple muscular and neurovascular anomalies in upper limb are reported continuously in medical literature because of their clinical significance. A unique case of the triad of variations was encountered during routine dissection activity. The variations observed were: 1) Accessory third head of biceps brachii; 2) High division of Brachial Artery; 3) Communication between Musculocutaneous Nerve and Median Nerve. Taken independently these variations are common but it is rare in a single cadaver. These abnormalities were found unilaterally on the right arm of the cadaver...

Vascular anomalies represent a heterogeneous group of pathologies of the circulatory system that can affect any type of hematic and /or lymphatic vessel of different diameter or anatomic site. The extreme variability of tissue types and districts involved by these lesions determines a wide heterogeneity of clinical manifestations, resulting in involvement of different medical expertise. In this context, a commonly agreed terminology is crucial for the appropriate evaluation and multidisciplinary management of patients...

OBJECTIVES: Vascular anomalies are included in the 30 000 rare diseases worldwide affecting less than 5/10 000 people. Depending on their morphology and biological properties, they can cause varied disorders with organ involvement. Almost 60% of vascular anomalies have a predilection for the head and neck region in children. Clinical and scientific effort to establish interdisciplinary management concepts for vascular anomalies is increasing worldwide. METHODS: Especially in the head and neck region, clinical impairment and organ dysfunction is associated with cosmetic issues that may represent a physical and psychological issue for the patient...

Anomalies affecting the capillary and venous channels form the bulk of the spectrum of vascular anomalies. As per International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) classification, these are referred to as hemangiomas and venous malformations respectively. The present article is a descriptive note of their management and outcomes. Retrospective records of patients over 17 y (January 2000 through December 2016) were reviewed for presentation, management and outcomes. Outcomes were graded into 3 subgroups based on subjective assessment of clinical images: Group A = near-total response (>90%); Group B = 50-90% and Group C = <50% reduction...

Poland syndrome is a rare congenital malformation associated with various degrees of thoracic and homolateral upper limb abnormalities. We report the case of a 7-year old girl who underwent exploration for depression of the left hemithorax associated with homolateral subclavicular mass. CT scan showed that the deformation of the thoracic wall was related to the absence of left pectoralis major muscle sterno-costal heads insertion associated with agenesis of the pectoralis minor muscle and hypoplasia of the anterior arches of the first six corresponding ribs...

INTRODUCTION: Intracranial vascular, bone, and brain abnormalities might be observed in oculo-auriculo-vertebral spectrum (OAVS) patients even though these structures do not derive embryologically from the first and second pharyngeal arches. This neuroimaging study investigated their type, frequency and phenotype correlations among OAVS patients. METHODS: Thirty-five OAVS patients (mean-age 4.8 ± 6.0 years; age range 0.3-30, 14 females) underwent head CT (all patients) and brain MRI (32 patients); 19 patients had a more severe phenotype (Goldenhar syndrome)...

Vascular ring in the form of a double aortic arch is a rare anomaly that can cause airway compression. It occasionally occurs with unusual head and neck vessel branching. A 5-year-old boy with chronic respiratory symptoms was referred because of a tracheal indentation on his chest x-ray. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a double aortic arch with arch origins of a common carotid, vertebral, and subclavian on the right and internal and external carotids, vertebral, and subclavian arteries on the left. Our case represents, to our knowledge, the first report of a double aortic arch with 7 separate vessels arising from the transverse arches...

Importance: The current standard of treatment for infantile hemangiomas (IHs) involves initial observation for regression throughout infancy and childhood, with or without medical management with β-blocker medications. Approximately 50% of the lesions respond almost completely to this regimen. However, the remaining 50% of the lesions, especially established focal IHs of the lip, nose, eyelids, forehead, cheek, and scalp, do not regress completely with this regimen or do so leaving a deformity; among these lesions, early surgical management may result in a superior aesthetic and functional outcome...

BACKGROUND: Intestinal malrotation is a well-known anomaly in the normal rotation process of the midgut during embryogenesis. Multiple forms are described, resulting in various positional configurations of the small bowel and colon. Replaced common hepatic artery is a rare but not anecdotic variant of the standard hepatic vascularization, associated with surgical implications. Our aim is to explain the impact of their simultaneous presence during this procedure and the difficulty in identifying them preoperatively, despite imaging...

Head and neck anatomy is topographically complex and the region is densely populated by vital nerves and vascular and lymphatic structures. Injury to many of these structures is associated with significant morbidity and may even be fatal. A thorough knowledge of regional anatomy is imperative and complications need to be managed in a thoughtful directed manner. The pediatric surgeon may be called upon to address both congenital and acquired conditions and should be prepared to encounter reoperative fields after failed initial surgery...

Case Report. Isolated carotid artery originating from the pulmonary trunk is an exceedingly rare anomalous origin of head and neck vessels. We present this finding, along with a persistent embryonic trigeminal artery, in a male infant with multiple cardiac defects and other congenital anomalies associated with CHARGE syndrome. After extensive investigations, cardiac catheterization revealed the anomalous left common carotid artery arising from the cranial aspect of the main pulmonary artery. There was retrograde flow in this vessel, resulting from the lower pulmonary pressure, essentially stealing arterial supply from the left anterior cerebral circulation...

Short posterior ciliary arteries (sPCA) provide the major blood supply to the optic nerve head. Emerging evidence has linked structural and functional anomalies of sPCA to the pathogenesis of several ocular disorders that cause varying degrees of visual loss, particularly anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy and glaucoma. Although the functional relevance of this vascular bed is well-recognized, the proteome of sPCA remains uncharacterized. Since the porcine ocular system closely resembles that of the human's and is increasingly employed in translational ophthalmic research, this study characterized the proteome of porcine sPCA employing the mass spectrometry-based proteomics strategy...
