Anatomy review – September 2010 past paper

Anatomy practice for the September 2010 anatomy exam! Just remember these are my answers (not necessarily correct, nor yours) and I’d use this as a guide to how I’d answer it in the exam. Yes I’ll be double-posting these when it comes to splitting it up into anatomical sections.

The way that I aim to do this is provide an attempt at the answer (my thought process behind the question), then go and attempt to answer the question. I’m not yet a registrar but I’d say my anatomy isn’t bad. In doing the questions this way you get an idea behind my thought process, and can also see that I’m human 🙂

The stuff in bold are things I thought were important, and didn’t remember to write in initially. I need more work on this!

I’ve decided to format the questions in different pages, the links are below.

  1. Write short notes on the anatomy of the arterial supply of the cerebellum including normal variants.
  2. Write short notes on the anatomy of the cavernous sinus.
  3. Write short notes on the anatomy of the thalamus.
  4. Write short notes on the anatomy of the jugular veins.
  5. Write short notes on the anatomy of the sacroiliac joint.
  6. Write short notes on the anatomy of the pelvic floor (levator ani).
  7. Write short notes on the anatomy of the testis and epididymis.
  8. Write short notes on the anatomy of the ureter including normal variants.
  9. Write short notes on the anatomy of the left phrenic nerve.
  10. Write short notes on the anatomy of the breast.
  11. Write short notes on the anatomy of the anatomy and collateral ligaments of the ankle.
  12. Write short notes on the anatomy of the arterial supply of the foot, including normal variants.
  13. Write short notes on the anatomy of the venous drainage of the left upper limb.
  14. Write short notes on the anatomy of the scaphoid bone (in the wrist).
  15. Write short notes on the anatomy of the vertebral extradural space including its contents.
