  There are many variations of the structure of the human body that can significantly affect the outcome of medical procedures or they can cause pathological conditions in patients. Anatomical variants often met in anatomy and surgery. Knowledge of variant anatomy is extremely important in modern medical education, since the variations of structures can often change the symptoms and the course of diseases. According to the literature, about 10% of cases of intraoperative complications occur due to ignorance of anatomical variants. The anatomist teacher is obliged to analyze clinically significant variants of the structure of organs and structures with students during practical classes in anatomy.
