Any intraoperative rotational malalignment during intramedullary nailing (IMN) of femoral shaft fractures will become permanent. We hypothesized that rotational malalignment of the femur and its compensatory biomechanics may induce problems in the hip, knee, patellofemoral and ankle joints. We purposed to clarify the influence of a femoral rotational(More)
BACKGROUND We retrospectively analyzed 112 intertrochanteric femur fracture patients and 136 femoral neck fracture patients to determine mortality rates and factors affecting mortality. Internal fixation is the standard treatment method for intertrochanteric femur fracture patients in our institute, and arthroplasty, as a treatment choice, shows an increase(More)
This study presents the short-term follow-up results from our case series of patients with posteriorly localized intraosseous talar cysts. Patients were treated via hindfoot endoscopy in the prone position. We evaluated six ankles of five patients treated with hindfoot endoscopy for intraosseous cysts localized to the posterior portion of talus. Three(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of epidermal growth factor (EGF) on gastrojejunostomy (anastomosis), fascia, and skin wound healing in rats was investigated. METHODS The animals (rats) were separated into two main groups. In the first group (control group n: 23), rats were fed on standard diet and tap water without administration of EGF. In the second group (EGF(More)
When treating anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, the position of the ACL graft plays a key role in regaining postoperative knee function and physiologic kinematics. In this study, we aimed to compare graft angle, graft position in tibial tunnel, and tibial and femoral tunnel positions in patients operated with anteromedial (AM) and transtibial (TT)(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to research the effectiveness of customized thoracolumbosacral orthosis treatment for stable burst type thoracolumbar vertebral fractures without neurological deficits. METHODS The study included 26 patients (14 males, 12 females; mean age: 46.03 years; range: 18 to 64 years) conservatively treated for thoracolumbar (T11-L2)(More)
The present study aimed to compare short-term clinical outcomes between intraarticular platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid (HA) treatments in early-stage gonarthrosis patients. Data of gonarthrosis patients, who were stage 1 or stage 2 according to Kellgren–Lawrence classification and underwent intraarticular PRP or HA treatment, were obtained(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to assess and compare the efficacy of subacromial tenoxicam and steroid injections in treating patients with shoulder impingement syndrome. PATIENTS AND METHODS Forty patients having shoulder impingement syndrome with findings of rotator cuff tendinitis or subacromial bursitis on magnetic resonance imaging were included in the(More)
BACKGROUND Pediatric proximal femoral locking plates (PFLPs) are widely used when performing proximal femoral osteotomy in children with cerebral palsy (CP). The purpose of this study is to report the difficulties and risk factors of titanium PFLPs removal in CP. METHODS PFLP removal was performed in 58 hips of 33 patients (17 males, 16 females). The mean(More)
Introduction. Myopericytoma is a very rare perivascular tumor that can be presented with painful mass in lower extremities. We aimed to present an atypical presentation and location of myopericytoma. Presentation of Case. An 18-year-old otherwise healthy individual was admitted to outpatient clinic with complaints of numbness and pain in his right hand. He(More)
