Orf of the hand is an uncommon zoonotic infection caused by a dermotropic DNA virus that belongs to the Parapoxvirus genus of the family Poxviridae. It is transmitted to humans through contact with infected sheep and goats and is reported as an occupational disease. We report nine cases of human orf seen in the hands of individuals, who were not(More)
The influence of transient circulatory arrest on oxidant status during the healing of a tibial fracture was investigated in rats by the use of a hindlimb tourniquet technique. One of the most reliable indicators for cytological damage is lipid peroxidation, which can be demonstrated by malondialdehyde (MDA) levels. Fifty-eight Wistar rats were used in this(More)
AIM The aim of the present study was to compare hand grip strength and pinch power, which are important parameters of hand function, in 76 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) (mean age: 50.11+/-7.6) with 47 non-diabetic control subjects (mean age: 46.93+/-10.2). METHODS Grip strength was assessed with a Jamar dynamometer and pinch power was(More)
Surgical treatment of unstable thoracolumbar fractures is controversial. Most authors reported that short segment fixation led to a high incidence of implant failure and correction loss. On the other hand, long segment fixation has the disadvantage of fusing more segments. We aimed to compare the outcomes of long-segment fixation versus two or three levels(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the sonographic changes of heel fat pad thickness and compressibility index in healthy young adults in relation to level of athletic activity. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred ten young adults (55 women and 55 men) with a body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9 were divided into 3 groups according to their(More)
BACKGROUND Our aim was to investigate the morphometric features of malleolar groove of the lateral malleolus in humans. METHODS This study was performed on the malleolar grooves of 93 (80 dry and 13 cadaveric) fibulae. We measured the length of the fibula; length, width, and depth of the malleolar groove; the angle between malleolar groove and the fibular(More)
The objective of this investigation was to evaluate the reliability of classification systems by determining inter- and intraobserver agreement in displaced distal radius fractures. Radiographs of 32 patients (21 men and 11 women with a mean age of 41.6 years) who presented with a displaced distal radius fracture were classified by 9 orthopedic surgeons(More)
We aimed to determine the relationship between functional recovery after knee arthroplasty and systemic and local inflammatory responses. A prospective, clinical study of thirty patients who had osteoarthritis was conducted. After the total knee arthroplasty (TKA), intraarticular IL-6 levels, serum IL-6 levels and serum CRP levels were measured. The primary(More)
