A CADAVERIC STUDY OF BICEPS BRACHII MUSCLE- CLINICAL AND EVOLUTIONARY CORRELATIONS
Author: Patel Dinesh K., Shinde Amol A., Bharambe Vaishaly K.
Introduction: Knowledge of anatomical variations of the muscles is required during diagnosis with various imaging techniques. Literature mentions variations of additional heads of biceps brachii muscles.
Aim: To find incidence and variations of additional heads of biceps brachii muscle. Methodology – Meticulous dissection of 50 limbs for variation of origin, insertion and heads of biceps brachii muscle.
Results: We found 5 (10%) limbs showing accessory head of biceps. Bilateral variation was seen in one cadaver. One cadaver showed additional head taking origin from deltoid.
Conclusion: Role of evolution can be the cause of additional heads. Knowledge of the variations in the morphology of biceps brachii muscles is of immense importance in preoperative diagnosis and planned surgeries
Non-surgical treatment plays an important role in the treatment of primary liver cancer, which includes transcatheter arterial chemoembolization, percutaneous ablation therapy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, etc
