The uncinate process
width: The distance between lateral and medial margins of the cervical uncinate process
at process base (Bozbug'a et al., 1999; Lee et al., 2012; Kocabiyik et al.).
Pneumatised uncinate process
was seen in 1 patient (1.16%) while retroverted uncinate was present in 2 patients (2.32%) in our study while it was reported to be 2% and 16% respectively, by Gouripur K et al.
The uncinate process
is then identified and medialized with a Cottle elevator, and an uncinectomy is performed with a straight Thrubite forceps.
Caption: Figure 2: Computed tomographic image of the abdomen showing acute interstitial pancreatitis (arrow) with small discrete fluid collection in the uncinate process
. Also noticeable is a moderate amount of inflammatory fluid in the anterior pararenal space and a small amount in the retroperitoneum.
(ix) Already dissected from the SMV, the uncinate process
is exposed up to the right side of the SMA.
If an uncinate process
that interfered with tear flow was present, it was partially removed.
Uptake of radiotracer was measured in pancreas (uncinate process
and body separately), liver, spleen, and left suprarenal gland.
Pancreatic head or uncinate process
Blows to upper abdomen 2.
PPH early after the index operation may be arterial, usually from the uncinate process
resection margin close to the superior mesenteric artery or venous from portal vein branches or from one of the 3 anastomoses.
Similarly the patients of chronic sinusitis in India are reported to have been linked with anomaly in the uncinate process
.2 The reason of anomaly is mostly due the wrong practice of mothers that is the pressing of nose and forehead of the new born.
Chronic traumas to the hypothenar eminence in professionally predisposed individuals (drivers, mechanics, bricklayers, carpenters), or those engaged in a number of sports (such as golf, tennis, extreme martial arts, baseball in Anglo-Saxon countries) cause chronic pressure of the ulnar artery against the hamulus (uncinate process
) of the hamate bone [2-4].
Additionally to the above the genus Papiliolebias is characterized by: urohyal, dorsal process branched (also in some species of Pituna); third epibranchial, uncinate process
, forming an angle of 45-60[degrees] with distal process (also in rivulines but not in plesiolebi-asines); posttemporal, ventral process present; opercular region with regular reticulate pattern formed by iridescent colour on middle of scales contrasting with dark orangish brown pigment along entire scale margins (also in Pituna); and humeral region with iridescent blotch (also in Pituna) (Costa 2011).
