Activation of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaBeta) in synovial cells is seen in RA and OA patients. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) is a specific and potent inhibitor of NF-kappaBeta. We aimed to determine the in vivo effects of intra-articular injections of CAPE on cartilage in an experimental rabbit osteoarthritis (OA) model. Two groups of six New(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study, we aimed to evaluate the functional results of nerve repair (median and/or ulnar) in patients with forearm clean-cut injuries and investigated the effect of injury level, associated injuries, the type of repair (primary or secondary), and age on the prognosis. METHODS The study included 42 patients (34 males, 8 females; mean age(More)
BACKGROUND Studies in animal models for alcohol abuse have suggested that ethanol inhibits bone growth, decreases bone formation, and increases fracture risk. METHODS Experimental tibia fracture healing in rats fed a liquid diet containing 7.2% ethanol for 8 weeks was investigated with histological and osteodensitometric studies with respect to the(More)
OBJECTIVE Neuroma is a psychologically and physically disabling problematic condition without any current standard therapy. For that reason, we investigated whether end-to-side anastomosis of the proximal end of the transected nerve into the adjacent nerve will prevent the development of neuroma in different types of nerve injuries. STUDY DESIGN In this(More)
A fifty-four-year-old male patient presented to our emergency department with a gunshot injury in his arm, caused by pellets. Surgical exploration showed injury to the brachial artery, which was then repaired with a saphenous vein graft. Conservative treatment was planned for associated nerve injuries. After arterial flow began, two pellet-like solid bodies(More)
INTRODUCTION Osseous hydatid disease is a rare pathology and its differential diagnosis can be difficult. PRESENTATION OF CASE This article presents clinical and radiological findings of a femoral primary hydatid disease in a 23 year-old patient admitted with knee pain. DISCUSSION Osseous hydatid in femur is a rare entity. Curettage is one of the(More)
Damage to peripheral nerves results in partial or complete dysfunction. After peripheral nerve injuries, a full functional recovery usually cannot be achieved despite the standard surgical repairs. Neurotrophic factors and growth factors stimulate axonal growth and support the viability of nerve cells. The objective of this study is to investigate the(More)
We aimed to investigate the changes in proton metabolite levels at the motor and somatosensory cortex by magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) after upper extremity replantation or revascularization. Nine patients who referred to our clinic suffering from major total (two) and subtotal (seven) amputation of the upper extremity were enrolled in this study.(More)
BACKGROUND We wanted to investigate the somatotropic reorganization occurring in the motor and somatosensory cortex by using 99mTc-HMPAO SPECT analyses, after the extremity revascularization, replantation or amputation. METHODS Twelve patients (11 men, 1 female; mean age 38.9+/-14.7 years) and controls (5 men, mean age 32.2+/-7.9 years) were enrolled in(More)
