... and the location of the anterior ethmoidal artery (AEA). The frontal recess cells and the AEAs were retrospectively evaluated in CT scans of the nasal and paranasal sinuses for 89 patients. The prevalence of agger nasi cells was 90.7%. The frequency of frontal cell types 1, 2, 3 and 4 was 28.8, 0.6, 2.6 and 0...

... Abstract Infarctions in the territory of the posterior cerebral artery (PCA) occur in about 5-10% of all ischemic strokes. The PCA can be divided into ‘deep' (P1 and P2 segments) and ‘superficial' (P3 and P4) segments. Occlusion of paramedian perforating arteries arising from P1 causes rostral...
