The brain of the camel received its arterial blood supply from the basilar artery and the intracranial part of internal carotid artery, also known as cerebral carotid artery (Ocal et al.), which was represented by the rostral epidural rete mirabile (Fig.
Univariate logistic regression analysis showed that older age, higher TC, higher LDL, presence of internal carotid artery plaques, and CIMT [greater than or equal to] 0.71 mm were significantly associated with PAD (P<0.05; see Table 2 for details).
Surgical procedures on cavernous sinus and suprasellar region demand total removal of the optic strut, which if not removed can lead to damage of optic nerve or internal carotid artery. (6) Moreover studies have suggested that optic strut to be removed before anterior clinoid process, otherwise anterior process bony fragments may damage optic nerve or internal carotid artery.
