Resumen

KAPAKIN, Samet. An Unusual Anatomic Variation of the Jugular Foramen with Doubled Posterior Condylar Canal. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.4, pp.1186-1188. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022011000400019.

A case of unusual anatomical variation of the jugular foramen (JF) with doubled posterior condylar canal (PCC) is reported. According to the presence of bridging, the JF can be defined as Type I (one septation, two compartments) on the right side and Type IV (three septations, four compartments) on the left side. The dome of the jugular fossa is present on the right, absent on the left. The jugular foramen shows a canal-like structure with an external and an internal opening. The lengths of the longest and widest axes of the JFs are measured as 21.93 x 16.56 mm on the right and 16.75 x 15.14 mm on the left side. The right JF is larger. The PCC is doubled on the right side and there is only one on the left side. It is essential not only to know compartments per se but also to know the structures passing through the compartments, in order to achieve desired surgical outcomes and avoid complications.

Palabras clave : Jugular foramen; Condylar canal; Anatomic variation.
