True atherosclerotic aneurysms of the common femoral artery (CFA) are rare and often associated with other peripheral or aortic aneurysms. Degenerative aneurysms of the lower extremity most commonly involve the popliteal artery, while they are rarely detected in the femoral region. In this region, aneurysms most frequently involve the common femoral artery (CFA), whereas true aneurysms of the superficial femoral artery (SFA) represent only 15% to 25% of femoral arterial aneurysms. We report a ca...

Insulin resistance is a condition derived from the disorder in the use of substrates for metabolic activities. It can be caused by chronic hyperinsulinemia, inflammation, and long-term use of corticosteroids. In vivo and in vitro models have revealed that this process is secondary to the excessive production of mitochondrial oxidants, a product of mitochondrial dysfunction, even in cases where mitochondrial respiration is conserved. Insulin increases the number of type 4 glucose transporters (GL...

It is ambiguous whether the myocardial bridge (MB) over the coronary arteries and their branches is present in or absent from dextrocardia with situs inversus. Two cases of dextrocardia with situs inversus were accidentally found in adult Thai hearts received for researches from the Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University. They were found in 43- and 78-year-old Thai men. One case of dextrocardia with situs inversus was found in gross anatomy practice of Chiang Mai Unive...
