Abstract

Knowledge of different variations is important for the clinicians and other medical disciplines for the diagnostic, interventional and surgical procedures. The aim of this study is to report any unusual observations of anatomical structures during the dissection of properly embalmed three male cadavers at the department of human anatomy at National University Faculty of Medicine from 1st July 2015 to 5th May 2016. Cadaver (1) about 70 years old male was showed anatomical variations in musculocutaneous nerve formation. Cadaver (2) about 60 years old male shows that extensor carpi radialis longus inserted by two tendons. Cadaver (3) about 55 years was showed the high division of brachial artery into radial and ulnar arteries at the upper end of the arm. No additional variation was observed. The unusual observations should be reported due to their greater clinical significance.
