PhD – Experimental Surgery (P5105 - 5103V000)


Experimental design to map anatomical variations to their clinical correlations. Majority of the work is exerted on cadaveric dissections and observations. Nevertheless, besides the routinely radiographs of X-rays, CT, MR and ultrasound became an emerging tool in anatomy. Our work takes place at different levels interchangeably. At the osteology level, at the soft tissue level, and the topographical level with focus on vessels and nerve variations.

The objectives and significance of the work

  • Mapping morphological variations as a guidance in imaging diagnostics.
  • Correlating morphological variants to potential anatomical related disorders.
  • Exploring the anatomical sites of surgical approaches and techniques.
