The incidence of iatrogenic peripheral nerve injury during hip arthroplasty procedures has been reported to be between 0.6 and 1.3 percent. The relative risk of nerve palsy is higher in certain groups of patients such as women, patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip, and those who have undergone revision arthroplasty. In this study, the dynamic(More)
The insertions of the menisci to the tibia are the most important restraints to extrusion from the knee joint, and are vital for the functional integrity of the menisci. The aim of the present study was to determine variations of tibial insertions of the medial menisci (MM) in newborn cadavers macroscopically and in adults by arthroscopy. Neonatal part of(More)
INTRODUCTION We present the results of a two-stage reconstruction performed with autologous segmental tibia bone transfer on a distal tibia Gustilo-Anderson type-IIIC open fracture in this paper. Our aim is to discuss the results of this surgery, potential failures and complications in our procedures, and ways to protect against osteolysis. PRESENTATION(More)
The management of nonunion and limb length discrepancy has remained a constant challenge in hemophilic patients. In this study, we aimed to present the treatment of femur infected nonunion and limb length discrepancy in a twenty-seven-year-old patient with hemophilia type A. A 27-year-old male patient with hemophilia type A referred to our institution for(More)
INTRODUCTION Femoral neck stress fractures are not uncommon. Several causes exist about these fractures. Osteomalacia is one of the most common cause of insufficiency fractures and coxa vara can produce a focal concentration of mechanical stress in the femoral neck and may cause stress fractures. This case study is about the co-existence of these two(More)
INTRODUCTION Bilateral femoral neck fractures without major trauma are rare and related to several conditions. Insufficiency fractures due to the use of anti-epileptic drug are one of the rare causes. This case study is about bilateral femoral neck insufficiency fractures resulting from chronic use of anti-epileptic drug. PRESENTATION OF CASE A(More)
INTRODUCTION Femoral head avascular necrosis is caused by disruption of the blood supply of the femoral head, which finally results in hip dysfunction. Non traumatic osteonecrosis may related with corticosteroid use, alcohol abuse, SLE, hemoglobinopathies or exposure to cytotoxic agents. But avascular necrosis of the femoral head (ANFH) due to heroin use is(More)
Superior mesenteric artery syndrome is a rare condition that causes a proximal small intestinal obstruction due to contraction of the angle between the superior mesenteric artery and the aorta. Scoliosis surgery is one of the 15 reasons for superior mesenteric artery syndrome, which can present with acute or chronic manifestations. Although conservative(More)
