The role of p53 mutation has been shown in different human malignancies, including various skin cancers. In this study, we examined p53 protein expression in 25 eccrine poromas and 11 porocarcinomas by immunohistochemistry. P53 expression was observed in 88% (22 of 25) of eccrine poromas and 73% (8 of 11) of porocarcinomas. In eccrine poromas, percentage of(More)
Melanoma can metastasize to almost every organ and tissue. Although bone metastases have been reported frequently, the authors are aware of only a single report of intra-articular synovial metastasis. A case of metastatic melanoma, mimicking degenerative medial meniscal tear of the right knee, is presented. Further examination revealed asymptomatic(More)

Between 1990 and 1996, 16 cases of bone defects were treated by vascularised bone grafting by the authors. Free vascularised fibula was used in 10 cases and one free iliac crest graft was used for upper extremity bone defects. Four vascular pedicled first metacarpal bone and one radial styloid bone were used for scaphoid nonunion. Average follow-up was 26(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to develop a suture technique that would be simple and easy to perform, but also strong enough to resist the strength formed during early active exercise protocols. METHODS Thirty flexor digitorum profundus muscle tendons were obtained from lambs aged 12 to 16 months. The tendons were assigned to three in situ repair(More)
Scapular clicking with shoulder motion has been described for a variety of conditions. Two unusual cases, a lymphangioma of the thoracic wall in a 42-year-old man and an aneurysmal bone cyst of the scapula in an 8-year-old boy, are presented. The lymphangioma was treated by marginal excision of the lesion and the aneurysmal bone cyst, by excision of the(More)
