The two researchers, Dr. Othman Al Daher and Dr. Asaad Rabie, from the Department of Anatomy and Embryology at the Faculty of Medicine at the Arab American University, received the best research award from the University of Dundee in the United Kingdom, as their research papers were classified as the best thesis for a master's degree in anatomy.
Othman and Asaad are two physicians who hold master’s degrees from the CAHID Center for Anatomy, which is highly ranked in anatomy in the United Kingdom. They are currently working as lecturers at the Faculty of Medicine at the Arab American University, and they were recently rewarded by the University of Dundee on the occasion of their merit for the best thesis for obtaining a master’s degree in anatomy.
Doctor Al Daher's master's thesis focused on the possibility of locating the radial nerve groove in the upper extremities using external anatomical signs when a medical procedure is needed in the homers to protect the nerve during any medical procedure such as surgeries or returning closed fractures. (Estimating the location of the radial groove in the posterior humeral shaft using anatomical landmarks: Cadaveric study.
As for Dr. Rabi`, his research focused on the differences between humans in the shape of the end of the spinal cord canal in the sacrum. He also studied the dimensions of this end and the measurements related to the injection of anesthesia to the nerve endings in the lower back, in an attempt to find a new mechanism in determining the nerve canal, which facilitates the injection process in the Anesthesia (Sacral hiatus morphometry; anatomical study of conventional versus experimental methods for clinical localisation of caudal epidural injections).
For his part, the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dr. Malek Zaben, congratulated the two researchers, Dr. Asaad Rabie and Dr. Othman Al Daher, on this achievement, stressing the interest of the Faculty of Medicine at the university in scientific research, and always working to develop the academic staff in line with the successive developments in medical sciences worldwide.
