In this study, the morphology of the acromion in neonatal cadavers was investigated. The hooked-type acromions (Bigliani and Morrison type III), which are said to be responsible for rotator cuff lesions in adults, were found to have a very low incidence in this age group (5%). This finding challenges the validity of the assumption that some individuals have(More)
To examine the association of the median artery with the median nerve, 110 forearms from 20 neonatal and 35 adult cadavers of Turkish populations were dissected and compared with those of adult cadavers. In neonatal cadavers, the persistent median artery was found unilaterally in 5 (12.5%) forearms, in 4 of which the artery arose from the ulnar artery and(More)
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction relies on the security of graft fixation. K-wire fixation, heavy non-absorbable sutures tied to a screw staple post or endo-button are currently used for graft fixation. Kurosaka screw fixation may cause rupture of the graft due to excessive stress at the screw-graft interface in the femoral tunnel. To avoid(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)
OBJECTIVES Complications associated with the patellar component have an important place for revision procedures following total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We evaluated the patello-femoral congruity both clinically and radiologically after TKAs performed with polyethylene patellar components. METHODS The study included 60 knees of 55 patients (45 females, 10(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the characteristics of bone and soft tissue tumors operated on at the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at Ondokuz Mayıs University Faculty of Medicine Hospital between January 1987 and January 2012. METHODS This descriptive study retrospectively evaluated 1,925 patients hospitalized with a(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (PD) pathogenesis by comparing absolute circulating endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) counts, serum levels of vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) and immunoglobulins between PD patients and controls. METHODS The study included 28 PD cases (mean age: 8 ± 3.8) and 25(More)
One of the most common causes of pain and disability in the upper limb is inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons. When no significant bony abnormality exists in the surrounding structures, the coracoacromial ligament has been implicated as a possible cause of impingement on the cuff tendons and various morphological variants of the ligament have so far(More)
The shape of the femoral sulcus is an important factor in patellofemoral congruence. The aim of the present study was to investigate the femoral sulcus angle using neonatal cadavers through ultrasonographic and macroscopic observations, in order to evaluate the differences between those two methods and also in order to compare them with adult data published(More)
