Osteometric sorting can also be used to create a "short list" of possible antimeres
to a given element by doing multiple comparisons at once and excluding those that are most different in size (Lynch et al.
To visualize the ultrastructure of the muscle fibers from the EDL, the distal portions of the right antimere
EDL was removed and reduced to longitudinal fragments (approximately one mm wide) and immersed in glutaraldehyde (2.5 %) for fixation.
Both in the right and left antimere
, we recorded from one to two thoracic lobes.
80(80%) males exhibited evidence of simultaneous presence of dental caries in mandibular first permanent molar and its antimere
while 20(20%) males did not show any evidence.
For analysis of the distributions of the muscular branches of femoral nerves that emerge along each nerve trunk in the respective antimere
, we performed a circular incision in the skin of the middle third of the leg and a vertical incision in the skin of the medial side of the thigh, extending from the root of the pelvic limb to the first incision in the leg.
This work confirmed that both venous and arterial variations are more frequent in the left antimere
than in the right one.
--The encephalic and costal regions are preferably vascularized by branches proceeding from subclavial a., in all cases, and in the left antimere
of the newborn occurs the cooperation of the axillar a.
The buccal and mandibular branches of the facial nerve were identified and isolated through a preauricular approach in both antimeres
. The dissected nerves were cut into 1-mm long explants.
The field-recovered left radius, ulna, and foot elements were compared to the NMCP right antimeres
and visually pair-matched (Byrd &Adams 2003).
The medial aspect of the mandibular ramus was inspected in both mandibular antimeres
of the selected mandibles by a single examiner, which considered as AFMR every foramina found between the MF and the posterior margin of the ramus (Fig.
(2017) found that the humeri and tibia are correctly associated to their antimeres
44% and 46% of the time, respectively, but only 6% of the time when humeri are compared to tibiae in the same bundle.
