Anatomical assessment of posterior condylar foramen present in human skulls
Author(s): Dr. Manoj Kumar Jayaswal
Abstract: The condylar canal (canalis condylaris) is situated in the condylar fossa. It is posterior to the occipital condyles. It communicates the emissary veins which invent at the sigmoid sinus and drain into the occipital vein. The study had included the 25 dry adult skulls. These are collected from the Department of Anatomy, in the Hind Institute of Medical Science, Mau, Ataria, sitapur. The study is planned to assess the unilateral or bilateral presence or absence of the posterior condylar canal. The occipital condyles were examined vigilantly for the condylar foramina and watchful whole foramina as variation for the existing study. We perceived by transient a probe into the bilateral and unilateral subsequent condylar foramina to novelty where they were opening into the posterior cranial fossa in their complete sequence. The hypoglossal dural arterio venous fistulas can be accessed through the condylar veins. Anatomical discrepancies of the posterior condylar foramina are note worthy concluded the management of dural arterio venous fistula. From the present study the elementary awareness to the clinicians and surgeons will be provided before planning a surgery in the occipital condylar regions.
