Five patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type VI were surgically treated for their spinal deformities. All of them were female. All but one had a double-major thoracic and lumbar curve. One had a mild scoliotic curve but severe thoracic lordosis. Anterior discectomy and fusion and posterior instrumentation was performed in a single stage in two patients,(More)
The clinical and imaging findings of patients with a confirmed diagnosis of tuberculous spondylitis were retrospectively analyzed to assess the diagnostic value of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and determine the different patterns of spine involvement. Fifty-three patients with plain radiographs and MRI of the entire spinal column were included in the(More)
Blunt injury to the cardiac valves leads to progressive acute ventricular failure, which often requires urgent surgical management. In this case report, we describe an acute aortic valve rupture caused by air-bag inflation during an automobile accident. Laceration of an aortic valve cusp was treated successfully with urgent aortic valve replacement. A(More)
Long periods of immobilization, progressive kyphosis and graft failure are the major postoperative problems encountered after anterior radical surgical treatment for tuberculosis of the spine. Posterior fusion and instrumentation can be an effective solution for these problems. Effectiveness of posterior fusion and instrumentation was investigated in this(More)
The perforation of the medial acetabular wall during total hip arthroplasty due to drilling is not uncommon. But, it has rarely been associated with serious adverse events. Here, we present a case report describing an iliacus hematoma with subsequent femoral nerve palsy after primary total hip arthroplasty in a 67-year-old woman who underwent primary total(More)
PURPOSE In this study, we aimed to report the results of a retrospective study carried out at our institute regarding cases of patients who had suffered proximal femoral fractures between January 2002 and February 2007, and who were treated with a proximal femoral nail. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred consecutive cases were included in the study. A case(More)
Thirty-two patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis underwent anterior fusion with rigid single rod (third generation instrumentation) and titanium mesh cages. The mean follow-up was 31 (24–45) months and the mean age was 14.9 years. There were 8 patients with King type I, 10 with type II, 6 with type III, 4 with type IV and 4 with lumbar curves.(More)
Osteochondrosis dissecans (OCD) is a form of osteochondrosis limited to the articular epiphysis. The most commonly affected areas include, in decreasing order of frequency, the femoral condyles, talar dome and capitellum of the humerus. OCD rarely occurs in the shoulder joint, where it involves either the humeral head or the glenoid. The purpose of this(More)
We report a case of a 61-year-old woman who underwent hip arthroscopy for a labral tear. The acetabular labrum was resected arthroscopically. Three months later, magnetic resonance imaging showed avascular necrosis of the femoral head. Theoretically, avascular necrosis following hip arthroscopy may result from traction on vessels supplying the femoral head,(More)
In this prospective study, our aim was to determine the clinical and radiographic outcomes of the surgical treatment of primary complex problem femoral and humeral shaft fractures treated by a new technique called “sandwich technique.” A total of 45 patients with comminuted, complex and/or osteopoenic fractures of the femur or humerus (30 femoral and 15(More)
