Our objective was to review the MR imaging signs of meniscal bucket-handle tears and assess the relevance of these signs to the arthroscopic classification of displaced meniscal tears. Forty-five menisci in 42 patients who had a diagnosis of bucket-handle tear either on MR imaging or on subsequent arthroscopy (in which Dandy's classification of meniscal(More)
We present here the third case report of bilateral discoid medial menisci with associated bone changes. An 18-year-old man had bilateral medial tibial plateau depression (cupping) accompanying medial discoid menisci documented by magnetic resonance imaging and confirmed by arthroscopy. The patient was treated successfully by excision of the torn central(More)
The infrapatellar fat pad of Hoffa is commonly injured but rarely discussed in the orthopaedic literature. Hoffa’s disease is the extension of various traumatic events due to impingement and inflammation of the infrapatellar fat pad and known as a vague reason for anterior knee pain. Inflammation is foreground during acute phase of the disease while(More)
We describe a new technique for arthroscopic reduction and internal fixation of fractures of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia. In this technique cannulated screws are placed through a new portal (transquadricipital tendinous) instead of anteromedial arthroscopic portal. Twelve patients who were treated with this technique for displaced types II and(More)
A two stage, controlled animal trial was designed to observe the effects on normal and manually damaged articular cartilage of the rat knee joint of colchicine (COL) and diclofenac sodium (DIC) added into washout solutions. In the first stage, 21 rats were randomized into three groups, and right knees of all groups were washed-out by either COL, DIC or(More)
A ring-shaped lateral meniscus is a very rare entity within the spectrum of abnormalities of lateral meniscus. We present the second case in the literature of a symptomatic ring-shaped lateral meniscus in combination with a meniscal cyst and in association with an osteochondritis dissecans lesion of the medial femoral condyle. A potential pitfall of(More)

OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the effect of postural stabilization exercises on pain, muscle strength and function in females with patellofemoral pain. METHODS Forty-two volunteers with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) were included in this study. The subjects were randomly divided into two groups: Group 1 performed therapeutic knee and(More)
BACKGROUND This study was intended to investigate the healing properties of open and percutaneous techniques in a rabbit model and compare histological, electron microscopical, and biomechanical findings of the healed tendon between the groups. METHODS Twenty-six rabbits were randomly assigned to two groups of thirteen rabbits each. Percutaneous tenotomy(More)
