BACKGROUND The most appropriate route of tranexamic acid administration is controversial. In the current study, we compared the efficacy of intravenous (IV) and topical intra-articular tranexamic acid in reducing blood loss and transfusion rate in patients who underwent primary total knee arthroplasty. METHODS One hundred twenty 120 patients were(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes following reconstruction of the chronic Achilles tendon ruptures with large gaps (>6 cm) using free semitendinosus tendon graft transfer. There were 11 consecutive patients underwent the above-mentioned surgical technique for the treatment of chronically ruptured Achilles tendon contributed in current(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal technique for operative fixation of humeral shaft fractures remains controversial and warrants research. OBJECTIVES The purpose of the current study was to compare the functional and clinical outcomes of conventional open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) in patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Erythropoietin (EPO), in addition to its function as an erythropoiesis regulator has a regenerative activity on some nonhematopoietic tissues. Animal studies have suggested a role for erythropoietin in bone healing. OBJECTIVES The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of local EPO injection in healing of tibiofibular fractures. (More)
BACKGROUND Because of the importance of the DRUJ in upper extremity function and the prevalence of distal radius fractures, either with or without ulnar styloid fracture, this study was designed to assess the relationship between ulnar styloid fracture and the incidence of DRUJ instability after treatment of distal radius fractures treated with ORIF (volar(More)
BACKGROUND There are few studies comparing the biomechanical properties of angled blade plate and locking compression plates in supracondylar osteotomy. In the current randomized study, we prospectively compared the clinical and radiological outcomes of supracondylar osteotomy using these two plates. METHODS Forty patients with valgus knee malalignment(More)
BACKGROUND Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) may lead to physical and mental problems. It also can adversely affect patient satisfaction and the quality of life. In this study, we assessed the outcomes and satisfaction rate after surgical treatment of AIS using scoliosis research society-30 questionnaire (SRS-30). METHODS We enrolled 135 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Limited recent studies have demonstrated that 99mTc-UBI scan can be a helpful method in precise diagnosis of infection. In the current study, we aimed to investigate the diagnostic efficacy of 99mTc-UBI scan in detection of musculoskeletal infections. METHODS Fifty patients with suspected musculoskeletal infections (painful THA, TKA, implant(More)
Background: Femoral neck fractures (FNF) are a challenging orthopedic problem, and their appropriate treatment remains controversial. Nowadays, bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BHA) is increasingly used to treat FNF. Objectives: In the current retrospective study, we investigated the outcomes of treating FNF with BHA. Methods: There were 55 patients with FNF(More)
BACKGROUND Appropriate treatment of osteonecrosis of femoral head (ONFH) remains challenging. OBJECTIVES Here, we report the results of treating these patients with auto-corticocancellous bone graft from iliac crest to overcome the need for early total hip arthroplasty (THA). PATIENTS AND METHODS There were 132 hips (96 patients) with ONFH. Association(More)
