Anatomical terminology. The conus medullaris (Latin for medullary cone) or conus terminalis is the tapered, lower end of the spinal cord. It occurs near lumbar vertebral levels 1 (L1) and 2 (L2), occasionally lower. The upper end of the conus medullaris is usually not well defined, however, its corresponding spinal cord segments are usually S1-S5 In 20-30% the conus branch arises directly from the aorta. In 60% a sinus node artery arises as second branch of the RCA, that runs posteriorly to the SA-node (in 40% it originates from the Cx). The next branches are some diagonals that run anteriorly to supply the anterior wall of the right ventricle
—The anatomy of the pulmonary conus and its main branches is described by Cunningham (2) as follows: The conus or main trunk is about two inches in length and nearly one inch in diameter. It commences at the upper end of the infundibulum and runs backward and upward into the concavity of the aortic arch, where it bifurcates to form the right and left pulmonary arteries 1. ANATOMİ Anatomi, vücut bölümlerinin yapısını ve gelişimini inceleyen bir bilim dalıdır. Bu bilim dalı, vücut bölümlerinin yapılaşması ve biçimleri ile ilgilendiği için, Morfoloji'nin bir alt grubu veya bölümü olarak kabul edilmiştir. Tanınmış Alman yazarı Goethe, Anatomi ve Morfoloji'yi bir anlamda ele alır. Tanımını da, yaşayan vücudun yapı.
The conus medullaris is continuous at its lower end with the threadlike filum terminale, composed mainly of glial and connective tissue, which, in turn, runs through the lumbar sac amidst the posterior and anterior roots of the spinal nerves, collectively called the Cauda Equina (horse's tail), and then attaches to the dorsal surface of the coccyx • Filum terminale: Conus medullaris ucundan uzanan içi boş piamater yapraklarının birleşmesiyle oluşan ipliksi yapı • Ligamentum coccygeum: Filum terminale'nin dura mater dışı uzantısıdır • Intumescentia cervicalis: C3 - T2 arası şişkinlik (plexus brachialis nedeniyle) • Intumescentia lumbalis: T9 — conus medullaris arası şişkinlik (plexus lumbosacralis) • Cauda equina: Filum terminale etrafında spinal sinirlerin köklerinin oluşturduğu at kuyruğu.

The spinal cord measures roughly 45 cm in the adult male and 42 cm in the adult female. It is a downward extension of the medulla oblongata after it passes through the foramen magnum. The lowermost tapering extremity of the spinal cord is called the conus medullaris, which is around the first or second lumbar vertebra and can sometimes be lower The conus medullaris is the terminal end of the spinal cord.. Gross anatomy. After the cord terminates, the nerve roots descend within the spinal canal as individual rootlets, collectively termed the cauda equina.. The conus medullaris most commonly terminates at the L1/2 intervertebral disc level in children and adults 1-3.. Extending from the conus is a delicate strand of fibrous tissue.
Spinalkanalen är en kanal i ryggraden som bildas av kothålen (foramina vertebralia) i ryggkotorna och sträcker sig från stora nackhålet i skallen ned till svanskotorna.. Den innehåller bland annat ryggmärgen, hjärnhinnor och cerebrospinalvätska OBJECT The arterial basket of the conus medullaris (ABCM) consists of 1 or 2 arteries arising from the anterior spinal artery (ASA) and circumferentially connecting the ASA and the posterior spinal arteries (PSAs). The arterial basket can be involved in arteriovenous fistulas and arteriovenous malformations of the conus This activity attempts to provide a comprehensive overview of the anatomy of the conus medullaris; which includes the structure, embryology, blood supply, and nerves along with its clinical importance. Structure and Function. As mentioned above, the conus medullaris is the distal tapering end of the spinal cord
Conus geographus venom contains α-conotoxin as one of the key components (Gray et al., 1981). Nicotinic receptors are sensitive to activation by nicotine and have ion channels whose activity is induced in microseconds.

conus medullaris. is termination of spinal cord; filum terminale. is residual fragment of spinal cord that extends from conus medullaris to sacrum. thecal sac. Assuming normal vertebral anatomy with 7 cervical vertebrae, 12 thoracic vertebrae, and 5 lumbar vertebra,. Spinal cord and cauda equina in your lower back. Your spinal cord originates in your brain, travels through your spine, and terminates in the upper region of your lower back. This point of termination is called the conus medullaris, 7 from where the spinal nerves descend down The spinal cord (SC) is a longitudinal neural structure within the spinal canal, which acts mostly as a conduit for information reaching or leaving the periphery of the body. The SC starts at the foramen magnum and extends to the conus medullaris at approximately the level of the first lumbar vertebra It is a thick, fibroelastic membrane composed of collagen and elastin fibers that is a continuation of the cranial dura. At its cephalad origin, it fuses with the periosteum of the skull at the foramen magnum, and it continues caudally in a circumferential manner to its termination at approximately S2 in the adult
The practice of regional anesthesia is inconceivable without sound knowledge of the functional regional anesthesia anatomy. Just as surgical technique relies on surgical anatomy or pathology leans on pathologic anatomy, the anatomic information necessary for the practice of regional anesthesia must be specific to this application The conus is most obvious in the 80% or so of species with trabeculated hearts because the conus is made up of compact myocardium and readily distinguished from the heart muscle. In species with compact hearts, if the conus is not a discrete chamber then it generally has the form of a fibrous ring at the base of the ventricle
The larynx, commonly called the voice box, is an organ in the top of the neck involved in breathing, producing sound and protecting the trachea against food aspiration. The opening of larynx into pharynx is about 4 - 5 centimeters in diameter. The larynx houses the vocal folds, and manipulates pitch and volume, which is essential for phonation. It is situated just below where the tract of the pharynx splits into the trachea and the esophagus. The word larynx comes from a similar. The conus elasticus is just beneath the mucous membrane, here. The mucous membrane is closely attached to the vocal ligament, and also to the inner aspect of the arytenoid cartilage. At the level of the vocal folds, there's a narrowing betwen the walls of the larynx

Abstract. OBJECT: The arterial basket of the conus medullaris (ABCM) consists of 1 or 2 arteries arising from the anterior spinal artery (ASA) and circumferentially connecting the ASA and the posterior spinal arteries (PSAs). The arterial basket can be involved in arteriovenous fistulas and arteriovenous malformations of the conus The spinal cord ends at the intervertebral disc between the first and second lumbar vertebrae as a tapered structure called the conus medullaris, consisting of sacral spinal cord segments. The upper border of the conus medullaris is often not well defined The distal or terminal region of the spinal cord, the conus medullaris and cauda equina, is a complex region of spinal anatomy and transition from the central to peripheral nervous system. The motor nerve roots of the cauda equina exit and sensory nerves enter through the conus and are considered peripheral nerves Writer / Writers-Jens Waschke, Tobias M. Böckers, Friedrich Paulsen Translation Editor Prof. Dr. Mustafa F. Sargon Page Number 848 Print Date 2016 ISBN 978975277640 Anatomy . Each vertebral endplate has two distinct layers: The cartilaginous endplate. This layer connects to vertebral discs. Depending on where on the spine it's located, it can range in size from 0.1 millimeter (mm) to 2.0 mm thick. The bony endplate
The spinal cord terminates at the lower border of the first lumbar vertebra where it blends to create the conus medullaris. The lumbar as well as sacral nerve roots which emerge from the lower portion of spinal cord create a bundle inside the spinal canal under the conus medullaris Spinal Cord. The spinal cord extends from the foramen magnum at the base of the skull to the level of the first lumbar vertebra. The cord is continuous with the medulla oblongata at the foramen magnum. Like the brain, the spinal cord is surrounded by bone, meninges, and cerebrospinal fluid.. The spinal cord is divided into 31 segments, with each segment giving rise to a pair of spinal nerves
Fish anatomy is the study of the form or morphology of fishes.It can be contrasted with fish physiology, which is the study of how the component parts of fish function together in the living fish. In practice, fish anatomy and fish physiology complement each other, the former dealing with the structure of a fish, its organs or component parts and how they are put together, such as might be. Anatomy of the spine; drawing shows a side view of the spine, including the cervical spine (C1-C7), thoracic spine (T1-T12), lumbar spine (L1-L5), sacral spine (S1-S5), and the coccyx (tailbone). Also shown are the spinal cord, vertebra (back bone), conus medullaris (the end of the spinal cord), cauda equina (the bundle of spinal nerves that extend beyond the conus medullaris), and a lumbar disc Internal anatomy. The midbrain consists of two major parts: cerebral peduncles and tectum. The cerebral peduncles consist of the crura cerebri and tegmentum. They are separated from each other by a darkened stripe called the substantia nigra Adduktion. Adduktion refererer til en bevægelse der trækker en struktur eller del mod kroppens midterlinjen, eller mod midten af en kropsdel.

The cauda equina (CE) is a bundle of intradural nerve roots at the end of the spinal cord, in the subarachnoid space distal to the conus medullaris. Cauda is Latin for tail, and equina is Latin. The infundibulum (also known as conus arteriosus) is a conical pouch formed from the upper and left angle of the right ventricle in the chordate heart, from which the pulmonary trunk arises. It develops from the bulbus cordis.Typically, the infundibulum refers to the corresponding internal structure, whereas the conus arteriosus refers to the external structure A clear understanding of SC anatomy and physiology, the distinction between vertebral segments and spinal segments, the correlation between the functional components of the spinal roots and the peripheral nerves, and a thorough knowledge of the motor, sensory, and autonomic pathways are of paramount importance for an accurate description of the different clinical symptoms and signs associated.
