When using numerous measurements, this can cause minimal differences to become significant and lead to the rejection of an antimere that is nearly identical.
After dissection, the proximal portions of the right antimere EDL muscle were maintained at room temperature for 30 to 40 min.
At the left antimere, we found from one to eight lobes, so that the specimens with four and five lobes represented the majority of the sample, totaling 64.3% of the cases.
The study was a cross sectional observational study undertaken to evaluate the frequency of dental caries in mandibular first molar and its antimere in the opposite mandibular quadrant in eight to ten years old children seen at 28 Military Dental Centre.
Main differences in the ventral cephalic muscles were: 1) the depressor rostri (DR) in Urotrygon aspidurus is paired, big and each muscle joins its antimere in the medium region; in the rest of the species is less developed, and the right muscle does not meet its antimere in the medium region.
To obtain knowledge on the origins of the right and left femoral nerve, a horizontal incision at the level of the ventral midline was made from the xiphoid process of the sternum to the caudal margin of the pelvic symphysis and from this two other vertical incisions were made, one on each antimere until reaching the dorsal midline.
Renal artery multiplicities, especially in the left antimere, were compared to other same sized arteries in the body.
Morphometrical parameters: The encephalon measures in the latero-lateral course used as a parameter the more projected portion in the temporary lobes of each antimere. Each encephalon was weighed by a precision scale and the volume obtained agreed with Mandarim-de-Lacerda (1995), who mentions weight is equal to volume.
Surgical approaches were made between the preauricular and perioral regions in both antimeres so that the buccal and mandibular branches were highlighted and isolated.
After this period, carcasses were weighed and sectioned longitudinally into two antimeres. The longissimus dorsi (the section between the last lumbar and the first sacral vertebrae) were collected, according to the methodology of Colomer-Rocher et al.
By virtue of being antimeres, measurements are directly comparable between paired elements.
