A 15-year-old girl presented with anterolateral knee pain for 6 months. There were tenderness and pain at the anterolateral triangulation of the knee joint. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a tumor in the anterolateral corner of the knee joint. Arthroscopy did not show the tumor because it was located in fat pad. The tumor was found during fat pad(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the utility of percutaneous catheter drainage in the management of tuberculous and nontuberculous psoas abscesses associated without any bony involvement or with minimal bony lesions that could not cause vertebral instability. MATERIALS AND METHOD Eleven patients with psoas, iliopsoas and pelvic abscesses were drained under computed(More)
Tendon autograft was used for the treatment of osteochondral defects induced experimentally in dogs’ knees. Osteochondral defects were created on the femoral condyles in both knees of five dogs. The tendon was harvested from the anterior cruris, and a knot was tied in the middle. Then two tunnels were bored in the medial condyle. The free ends of the tendon(More)
Plicae are synovial folds, classified according to their anatomical relationship to the patella. The medial patellar plica is normally asymptomatic, but it may cause symptoms when it becomes thickened and fibrotic. We describe three cases of bucket-handle tear of the medial patellar plica. They all suffered from anterior knee pain and clicking. Our cases'(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the biomechanical and histological features of patellar tendon–bone autografting and free flexor-tendon autografting, which were fixed by two different techniques at the tendon–bone junction in reconstruction of an infraspinatus defect in sheep. Merino type sheep (n=10) were divided into two groups. Following a(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate initial fixation strength of a new interference nail fixation in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using bone-patellar tendon-bone graft. Human cadaver knees were used. Fixation strengths ranged from 500 N to 600 N (mean 550 N). This corresponds to loads in the graft during aggressive rehabilitation. No(More)
Chondroblastoma is a rarely seen cartilage originated tumor. It is mostly localized in the epiphysis of long bones. In this article, we present an 18-year-old male case in whom the tumor was located in the right distal femoral lateral condyle and destroyed anterior cruciate ligament origo. The tumor was curetted and the cavity was filled with cement.(More)
Utilization of the hamstring tendon in reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has become common in recent years. In MRI studies regeneration potential in harvested tendon has been observed. In the present study, 20 legs from ten sheep, which underwent 10 cm segment resection of tendon of musculus extensor digitalis lateralis (MEDL) were(More)
A 14-year-old girl who was engaged in farming was admitted with the complaints of right elbow pain and limited range of motion in the elbow joint. Plain radiograph revealed capitellar osteochondritis dissecans. After the loose fragment was removed from the capitellum and the defect was curetted, a palmaris longus tendon graft harvested from the same hand(More)
