OBJECTIVES To evaluate the results and complications of femoral neck fractures treated with internal fixation with three screws with an average follow-up of three years. METHODS Thirty seven patients operated upon between June 2000 and May 2005 for fractures of the femoral neck with three screws were identified as the study population. The final results(More)
As the rise on the prevalence of obesity, it is related with physical impairment of joints, especially in the lumbar spine and knee joints. Losing body weight can reduce or eliminate pain of head, neck, shoulder, lumbar spine and knees. By performing a laparoscopic bariatric surgery we demonstrated a significant improvement on the pain by body weight(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to compare non-compression and compression intramedullary nailing in an experimental femoral shaft osteotomy model in terms of radiological, histological, and biomechanical aspects. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four white New Zealand rabbits (average weight 4.3 kg; range 4 to 4.8 kg) were divided into three groups. A right(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to assess treatment outcomes of forearm fractures in patients aged between 10-18 years, for whom strict guidelines for surgical and conservative treatment are not yet clear. METHODS From a total of 41 patients between the ages of 10-18 years, 34 patients with a minimum of one-year follow-up in our clinic with the diagnosis of forearm(More)
Ipsilateral shoulder and elbow dislocation is very rare and only six articles are present in the literature mentioning this kind of a complex injury. With this presentation we aim to emphasise the importance of assessing the adjacent joints in patients with trauma in order not to miss any accompanying pathologies. We report a case of a 43-year-old female(More)
Objectıves: The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of total toe arthroplasty in patients with deformities repeatedly accompanied by first Metatarsophalangeal joint arthrosis following unsuccessful Hallux valgus surgery.Methods: Evaluation was made of a total of 12 cases with previous surgical treatment for a diagnosis of Hallux valgus who(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate whether or not it is possible to avoid intra-articular screw penetration in the application of distal radius volar plate with minimal use of fluoroscopy and thereby reduce to a minimum the risk of exposure of the surgical team to radiation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Volar plate with distal screw application with(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study, we present three distal locking techniques and two checking methods in intramedullar nailing. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 1999 and December 2011, we performed distal locking with locked intramedullary nails on 501 femoral bone fractures using bone alignment and aspiration technique without fluoroscopy and 578 tibial bone(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the depth, transverse and sagittal diameters of lunate fossa which is a significant structure of the wrist in terms of reducing the risk for volar plate screws, which are administered in distal radius fractures, from penetrating into the joint. MATERIALS AND METHODS Depth, transverse and sagittal diameters of(More)
