Masezza.com – There are two parts to the transverse process, an anterior portion called the costal process and a posterior part called the true transverse process. The costal element fuses to the vertebral body to form the transverse process. In the vertebrae of the neck, the foramen transversarium transmits the vertebral artery and vein to the spinal cord. For example, the FT of C7 transmits the vertebral artery to the brain.
Double foramen transversarium is more common in males than females
In a recent study, a male specimen had a left-sided FT, while a female had a right-sided one. Double foramen transversarium, also known as a FTR, is more common in males than females. This study found that there were two kinds of DFT: unilateral and bilateral. There were equal numbers of unilateral and bilateral DFTs in both sexes.
Foramen transversarium shapes are similar in males and females, but there are differences between the two. In males, the transverse foramen is smaller than the right one, while in females it is wider than the left. The transverse foramen is asymmetrical. It is oblique from the right side, while the right foramen is straight and round. The female foramen transversarium is irregular in shape.
The transverse foramen in the cervical vertebrae narrowed significantly
One study shows that transverse foramen in cervical vertebrae is significantly narrowed. Although the majority of transverse foramens have dimensions within a standard deviation, there are some that are significantly narrower. In that study, there were 19 cervical vertebrae with foramen diameters one SD smaller than the mean. Three vertebrae on the right side had foramen diameters less than 3.5 mm.
Anatomy departments often perform MRI procedures to assess vertebral angulation. In a recent study, skeletons of 17 people were studied. Twenty-one cervical vertebrae had double foramen transversarium. In nine cases, the double FT occurred on both sides of the same vertebra. A double FT can have important clinical implications in neurosurgery. They may provide valuable information for neurosurgeons.
The difference in bone bridges is important in determining the patient’s diagnosis
Anatomical differences in the Foramen Transversarium are important for diagnosis, radiological assessment, and medical image interpretation. There are two kinds of Foramen: unilateral and bilateral FAs. One type is incomplete and the other is complete. The differences in size, number, and location of the osseous bridges are important in determining a patient’s diagnosis. It’s also important to learn what causes a particular variation in a Foramen Transversarium.
The last type of foramen transversarium is the narrow canal in the sphenoid
A small opening in the ethmoid bone transmits the ophthalmic nerve. The other type is called the sciatic foramen and is located between the ischium and pubic bone. The last type of Foramen Transversarium is a narrow passage in the sphenoid. The vertebral foramen is a passage through a vertebra’s body.
Using the MB digital screen ruler, measurements were taken of the left and right sides of the Foramen Transversarium (FT). The measurement of the two parts of the FT was used to calculate morphometric parameters. The anteroposterior distance is the distance between the anterior and posterior border of the FT. The lateral border of the FT is the distance between the medial ridge of the uncus. All the data were analyzed using the statistical computing and graphics program RStudio. The results were compared by age and sex.
