Remote cerebellar hemorrhage after spinal surgery is extremely rare. Our objective is to describe this unusual complication, discuss the possible(More)
This study assessed the effect of fracture displacement and elapsed time before surgery on the development of avascular necrosis and nonunion after internal fixation of femoral neck fractures. Twenty-eight patients with 30 femoral neck fractures who underwent internal fixation and completed a minimum of 2 years' follow-up were retrospectively analyzed. The(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study to compare clinical and isokinetic results of patients who underwent biceps tenotomy or tenodesis for chronic tenosynovitis. METHODS Arthroscopic biceps tenotomy, arthroscopy assisted or arthroscopic biceps tenodesis were done in 20 patients who had diagnosis of chronic tenosynovitis and in whom conservative treatment(More)
PURPOSE To describe a technique of arthroscopic-assisted reduction and percutaneous cannulated screw fixation for displaced patellar fractures and to present the results of 5 cases. TYPE OF STUDY Case series. METHODS Five patients (3 male, 2 female) with displaced patellar fractures treated with an arthroscopic-assisted reduction and percutaneous(More)
This case report presents a 66-year-old woman with multiple vertebral hemangiomas causing spinal cord compression at different levels with a long symptom-free interval between episodes of compression. She presented with back pain and progressive weakness and numbness in her lower limbs for 3 months. Ten years earlier, she had had a symptomatic T4 vertebral(More)
Pulsation on the bone cortex surface is a rare condition. Pulsative palpation of the superficial-located bone tumors can be misperceived as an aneurysm. Fifty-eight-year-old man is presented with pulsating bone mass in his proximal tibia. During angiographic examination, hypervascular masses were diagnosed both at right kidney and at right proximal tibia.(More)
AIM Coccydynia is a painful condition affecting quality of life. The majority of patients can be successfully treated by non-surgical means. Chemical neurolysis, cryoablation and radiofrequency thermocoagulation (RFT) of ganglion impar are also used in the treatment of visceral pelvic pain. We analyzed the efficacy of RFT of ganglion impar in patients with(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)
Four patients with chronic nonunion of the scaphoid were treated by a vascularized bone graft based on first dorsal metacarpal artery. The mean duration of the nonunion was 28.5 months (range 12-48 months). There was avascular necrosis in all patients confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). None of the patients had previous attempts at surgical(More)
