The segmental measurements of RGC-IPL thickness revealed that group 1 had statistically significant thinning in all their macular segments (superior, superonasal, inferonasal, inferotemporal and superotemporal) except inferior segment as compared to group 2 (Table 2).
A positive correlation was found between MD and inferior segment GCC thickness, and a negative correlation was found between MD and FLV (p < 0.05).
Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen showed a large cystic lesion (>10 cm), with an irregularly thickened wall over the inferior segment of the right lobe of the liver [Figure 1]a.
They are made up of three elements: the inferior segment of the medial head of the clavicle, the notch on the upper lateral part of the sternum, and the cartilage of the first rib.
Although the left VA was the nondominant one, the embolus is easy to escape and enter into both the right and left AICA (more into the right one) due to neck motion and the characteristics of anatomy of right AICA (the VA distal to the dissection, inferior segment of BA, and the initial segment of right AICA are almost in a line).

A chest computed tomography (CT) also showed multiple cavitary lesions at the sites of the right medial lobe, right inferior lobe superior segment, and left lingula inferior segment along with nodular lesions at the right inferior lobe superior segment (Figure 2).
A 64-year-old man, known case of diabetes mellitus and hypertension presented with angina since 20 days and was diagnosed to have anterior wall MI, moderate LV dysfunction, EF of 35% with akinetic anterolateral and inferior segments and also had a large clot at LV apex which was mobile, pedunculated measuring 3.6 x 2.1 cm.
Echocardiogram obtained in 2015 revealed reduced ejection fraction of 40-45% and regional wall motion abnormalities involving apical septal and basal inferior segments and basal and mid inferior septum.
Regional wall motion analysis of the left ventricle in patients with inferior STEMI showed that majority of the patients had hypokinesia or akinesia in the basal and mid inferior segments. The posterior segments were involved in 37(50%) cases, while the lateral wall segments were affected in 24(33%) cases.
A transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) revealed a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 40-45%, with akinesis of the basal-mid inferior segments. These findings led to a coronary angiogram that showed a very large sized, dominant RCA supplying the entire lateral wall; normal left main and left anterior descending (LAD) arteries; and a congenitally absent left circumflex artery (Figure 2).
The two fascicles or layers of the tendon are one anterior, formed by the clavicular head and the more superior segments of the sternal head, and one posterior, formed by the inferior segments of the sternal head.
