It may be very difficult to diagnose the pathology in patients with anterior knee pain. Patients with chronic anterior knee pain have been reviewed for the study. Our aim was to delineate the presence of subtle trochlear dysplasia by measuring lateral trochlear inclination (LTI) in axial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. While there were 109 knees in(More)
The Achilles tendon is the strongest and thickest tendon in the human body. It is also the commonest tendon to rupture. It begins near the middle of the calf and is the conjoint tendon of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles. The relative contribution of the two muscles to the tendon varies. Spiralisation of the fibres of the tendon produces an area of(More)
The infrapatellar fat pad of Hoffa is commonly injured but rarely discussed in the orthopaedic literature. Hoffa’s disease is the extension of various traumatic events due to impingement and inflammation of the infrapatellar fat pad and known as a vague reason for anterior knee pain. Inflammation is foreground during acute phase of the disease while(More)
Central patellar (CP) portal is an accessory portal in arthroscopic knee surgery, which generally is considered to be safe. In this cross sectional study, we aimed to delineate the clinical and radiological outcome of patellar tendon (PT) and Hoffa’s fat pad after the use of this approach. From our hospital records, patients who underwent arthroscopy via CP(More)
The aim of this study is to report the outcomes of the treatment of talar osteochondral lesions with arthroscopic microfracture technique and postoperative intra-articular hyaluronan injection. Fifty-seven patients (29 men, 28 women) with osteochondral lesions of the talus were included in this prospective randomized clinical study between the years 2003(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of surgical drainage and use of synthetic glue in Morel-Lavallee lesions. METHODS We treated 7 Morel-Lavallee lesions in Ankara Bayindir Hospital, Ankara, Turkey between April 2003 and June 2004. These lesions developed in 5 male patients due to crush under a vehicle or a traffic accident. The mean age was 32.8 years;(More)
A case of bilateral anterior glenohumeral dislocation in a middle aged horse rider was presented. The patient was an amateur rider who sustained the injury when the horse reared suddenly. The rider fell back from the saddle while holding the halter. The shoulders were dislocated by a violent traction when shoulders were in internal rotation and flexion in(More)
Purpose of this case–control study was to evaluate the feasibility and advantages of arthroscopically assisted reduction and internal fixation of isolated medial malleolar fractures and compare the outcomes with conventional open reduction and internal fixation. Forty-seven patients with medial malleolar fractures were grouped into two: arthroscopy-assisted(More)
BACKGROUND We present the results of primary repair of acute tendo Achilles (TA) rupture augmented with gastrosoleus turn down flap technique. PATIENTS AND METHODS 78 consecutive patients with a complete acute rupture of the Achilles tendon operated between 1993 and 2004 were included in study. We performed a modification of the Lindholm technique in(More)
A prospective study of modified percutaneous Achilles tendon repair performed between 1999 and 2005 under local infiltration anesthesia is presented; the study evaluated the results of percutaneous repair technique by visualization of the synovia under endoscopic control, followed by early functional postoperative treatment for surgical intervention of(More)
