OBJECTIVES Peripheral neuropathy is a well-documented disabling sequela of major burn injury. These lesions are associated with both thermal and electrical injuries that may be frequently undiagnosed or overlooked in clinical settings. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of burn-related neuropathy in our database and to investigate the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the current study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of whole-body 18F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) in detecting carcinoma of unknown primary (CUP). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 7,636 patients were investigated by FDG-PET/CT examinations at our Institution. We(More)
Intramedullary spinal cord metastasis is very rare. In this study, we present the case of a 32-year-old male patient with a 2-month history of bilateral lower extremity weakness. Initial magnetic resonance imaging of the dorsal spine showed abnormal thickening of the dorsal spinal cord at the level of the T1-2 bodies. FDG-PET/CT images revealed a(More)
Osteoid osteoma is a benign osteoblastic tumor that occurs in the subcortical shaft and metaphysis of the long bones of the lower extremities; however, intra-articular lesions are also possible. Intra-articular osteoid osteomas are rare, and clinical symptoms are often less specific and, thereby, may lead to misdiagnosis. The definitive treatment for(More)
Ischiofemoral space impingement has become an increasingly recognized extracapsular cause of atypical hip, deep gluteal, and groin pain that can be treated endoscopically. We present a minimally invasive posterolateral technique that preserves the attachment of the iliopsoas tendon and quadratus femoris insertion while decompressing the ischiofemoral space(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to point out the long-term results of fibrin sealant in the treatment of acute ruptures of the Achilles tendon. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 1998 and December 2007, 42 patients (42 males; mean age 37.8 years; range 27 to 56 years) admitted to our clinic for acute ruptures of the Achilles tendon were treated with a fibrin(More)
We present a 13-year-old girl who was referred to our clinic with a 5-month history of right leg pain relieved by salicylates. Initial CT examination demonstrated a lesion in the posterior tibial cortex in keeping with an osteoid osteoma. This was resected and the diagnosis confirmed by histology. However, her pain recurred 2 weeks after the operation and(More)
AIMS Many agents and treatments are used in the treatment of neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) in MS patients, but no study has been conducted on the use of peripheric lidocaine (neural therapy-NT) on MS patients. We evaluated the effects of local administration of lidocaine on NDO in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. METHODS For each patient local(More)
Tumoral calcinosis is an uncommon and benign condition characterized by the presence of large calcific soft tissue deposits occurring predominantly in a periarticular location. It generally occurs as a complication of renal dialysis or trauma, and is rarely seen in familial and sporadic cases. Bone scintigraphy is a sensitive method for diagnosing tumoral(More)
