The inheritances of thousand kernel weight (TKW), protein percentage, protein quality and grain hardness were studied through an 11 x 11 complete diallel set of bread wheat genotypes consisting of four alloplasmic lines of Selkirk, two alloplasmic lines of Siete Cerros 66, and five commercial cultivars. Genetic components accounted for 93%, 90%, 78%, and(More)
We reviewed 14 patients with chronic lateral instability of the ankle treated by Colville's technique between 1996 and 2001. The mean patient age was 25 (20–35) years and all were men. The mean period between injury and surgery was 25 (18–32) months, and the mean follow-up was 20 (14–32) months. Twelve of the results were excellent and two were good(More)
A series of eight cases is presented in which similar fractures of the shaft of the humerus occurred during the throwing of hand grenades. Transient paresis of the radial nerve accompanied the fracture in one patient. In seven patients, the fracture healed without complication. In the remaining case, non-union developed, and surgical treatment was(More)
Between 1997 and 2001 we treated 54 elderly patients with unstable intertrochanteric fractures by primary hemiarthroplasty using a cemented bipolar prosthesis. Mean patient age was 75.6 (64–91) years and mean follow-up was 22.3 (5–48) months. Seven patients died before the fourth post-operative month. Thirty-three patients were able to walk with a walker in(More)
Isolated fractures of the capitellum are rare injuries and account for 1% of all elbow injuries. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical outcomes of 11 Type I capitellum fractures treated by open reduction and internal fixation using at least two standard Herbert screws between 1998 and 2003. The average age of the patients was 27.5 years. The(More)
Twenty-six patients with moderate-to-severe hallux valgus deformities were evaluated before and after treatment. All of the patients had incongruent great toe joints. The patients underwent modified proximal crescentic osteotomy, which was termed proximal oblique crescentic osteotomy. The results were evaluated at an average follow-up time of 55 weeks.(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the radiological, clinical, and functional results of femoral shaft fractures treated by interlocking intramedullary nailing. METHODS Interlocking intramedullary nailing was performed in 48 femoral shaft fractures of 46 patients (35 men, 11 women; mean age 30.5 years; range 20 to 69 years). Of the fractures, 31 were in the right(More)
BACKGROUND Femoral shaft fractures are usually seen in the young population as a result of high energy traumas and are often accompanied by major organ injuries. In this paper, we aimed to assess the clinical results of expandable femoral intramedullary nails in the treatment of 20 femoral shaft fractures. METHODS The average age was 34.7. One fracture(More)
Twenty-seven male military recruits with humeral shaft fractures that occurred during throwing of a hand grenade were analyzed to determine the causes and contributing factors of this fracture in recreational pitchers. Average patient age was 22 years (range: 19-27 years). Objective criteria included type and fracture site on radiographs. Subjective data(More)
Allograft and autograft microvascular proximal tibial epiphyseal plate transplants were performed in female New Zealand White (NZW) rabbits to quantify the growth rate and total growth potential of immunosuppressed and nonimmunosuppressed rabbits. The purpose of this experiment is to examine whether the 99mTc-MDP radionuclide uptake of the transplanted(More)
