Sample text

Posterior tibial vein – runs with the posterior tibial artery and unites with the anterior tibial vein to form the popliteal vein 4. 6 The veins of the leg and arm 37 12 Fetal circulation ● Umbilical vein – oxygenated blood enters the body via the umbilical vein. After mixing with deoxygenated blood in the ductus venosus, it reaches the right atrium (via inferior vena cava that receives blood from trunk and limbs) ● Right atrium – anatomical relationship of the venae cavae ensures that most of the blood in the right atrium (from the inferior vena cava) bypasses the right ventricle and goes directly to the left atrium via the patent foramen ovale ● Left atrium – blood from the left atrium mixes with (deoxygenated) blood from the lungs and is expelled via the left ventricle into the aorta, and ultimately around the body ● Mixing – some blood does not flow directly from the right into the left atrium, but instead it is directed to the right ventricle (mainly blood from the superior vena cava).

The lateral limbs of grey matter are joined by the transverse commissure. The limbs have an anterior (wider) column or horn and a posterior (narrower) column. The posterior horn has a group of specialised nerve cells, the substantia gelatinosa, at its tip. A lateral grey column can also be seen in the thoracic and upper lumbar area (containing spinal sympathetic cells) 3. White matter – consists of longitudinal nerve fibres divided into the following major tracts: ● Descending lateral corticospinal tract – major motor tract (fibres cross the midline in the medulla – pyramidal decussation) ● Descending anterior corticospinal tract – small motor tract (fibres do not decussate until reaching the distal anterior horn cells) ● Ascending posterior column – divided into the fasciculus gracilis and cuneatus.

The superficial branches of the plexus provide the sensory supply. These are best located by turning the patient’s head slightly away from the side to be blocked. The point of needle entry is taken from a line drawn laterally from the cricoid cartilage where it meets the posterior border of the sternomastoid. A needle inserted at this point at right angles to the skin will pop through the cervical fascia, where 10 ml local anaesthetic is then injected ● Lumbar plexus block – provides analgesia to the lower abdominal skin, the skin over the hip and the proximal lower limb: ● Classically, the original approach was paravertebral.
