Evaluation of needle positioning during blind intra-articular hip injections for osteoarthritis: fluoroscopy versus arthrography. OBJECTIVE To evaluate needle positioning during blind/anatomically referenced hip joint injections for osteoarthritis (OA). DESIGN Experimental(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of three-dimensional (3D) Schroth exercises in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. DESIGN A randomised-controlled study. SETTING An outpatient exercise-unit and in a home setting. SUBJECTS Fifty-one patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. INTERVENTIONS Forty-five patients with adolescent idiopathic(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the short-term effects of intra-articular injection of hyaluronan (Hylan G-F 20) on proprioception, isokinetic muscle force, self reported pain, and functional condition in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS 63 patients with stage II-III bilateral knee OA were included in this randomized,(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe our experience with poorly perfused hands after supracondylar fracture of the humerus (SFH) in children and to present mid-term outcomes of a single trauma center. This is a retrospective analysis of SFH patients with vascular injuries, conducted from 2003 to 2012. Nine patients (2.1% of all SFH patients) underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Many surgical procedures have been developed for the treatment of kyphoscoliosis. We present our experience of one technique for posterior total wedge resection osteotomy, with clinical and radiographic results. This is a one-stage solution which results in a shortened posterior column and reduced tension on the spinal cord in rigid angular(More)
Hip arthroscopy was first described in 1931 by Burman, and in recent years the applications have extended to labral surgery, osteochondroplasty, and a variety of other procedures. Hip arthroscopy may also be employed to extract loose or foreign bodies from the hip, and may be associated with more rapid recovery than an open procedure. We present a case of(More)
Five patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type VI were surgically treated for their spinal deformities. All of them were female. All but one had a double-major thoracic and lumbar curve. One had a mild scoliotic curve but severe thoracic lordosis. Anterior discectomy and fusion and posterior instrumentation was performed in a single stage in two patients,(More)
The goal of the treatment of early onset scoliosis (EOS) is correction of the deformity while still allowing for spinal growth. The aim of this study was to determine the safety and effectiveness of the single and dual growing rod techniques and which technique was the most effective in the management of EOS respectively. From 2003 to 2009, 23 patients(More)
The aim of this study is to assess the biomechanical advantage of adding strut allograft and the effect of its position on the construct in Vancouver type B1 fractures. Fifteen forth-generation synthetic femurs were used and created a fracture model at the tip of prosthesis, and subsequently fixated with a lateral plate only, lateral plate and medial strut,(More)
Hydatid cyst is a zoonosis affecting any part of the body and presenting difficulty in diagnosis and treatment. Primary bone involvement seen in about 2% of the cases is accompanied by spinal involvement in 50%. A 41-year-old female presented with low back pain radiating to the left leg. After physical examination, radiologic and laboratory investigations,(More)
