The ideal articular cartilage repair tissue should be durable and well-integrated. We have been performing osteochondral multiple autograft transfers (OMAT) since 1996 with the experience we had using carbon fiber implants. We call this technique OMAT instead of mosaicplasty because we use uniform osteochondral autografts. Osteochondral multiple autograft(More)
In this study, the major goal was to evaluate in vitro and in vivo findings by macroscopy, radiology, and histology to determine the effectiveness of therapy of experimental implant-related osteomyelitis with antibiotic carrier rods constructed of microbial polyesters. The polymers used were poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxyvalerate) [P(3-HB-co-4-HB)] and(More)
Polyhydroxyethyl methacrylate (pHEMA) membranes coated on one side with chondroitin sulfate (CS) were used to block adhesion physically and to reduce friction between healing flexor tendons and the surrounding tissue in rabbit forepaws after surgical repair. Digits with pHEMA-only, standard tendon sheath repair, and with no sheath repair were the controls.(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this biomechanical study was to compare the respective efficiency of plate-screw fixation and screw fixation in an experimental model of a Schatzker type 4 fracture. HYPOTHESIS screw fixation and plate fixation have a similar load to failure. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study compares the stability of Schatzker type 4 medial(More)
Bucket handle meniscus tears constitute about 10% of all meniscal tears. Bucket handle tears of medial meniscus is three times more than lateral meniscus. Most of these tears are associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency. Lateral meniscus lesions are more common with acute ACL deficiency, where medial meniscus lesions are more associated(More)
Children with fractures have been reported to have impulsive-hyperactive behavior problems although whether they exhibited such behavior more often than children with other orthopaedic conditions is unknown. We investigated whether impulsivity-hyperactivity was more prominent in children with extremity fractures than in children with orthopaedic conditions(More)
UNLABELLED Osteoporosis is a major health problem characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing patients to an increased risk of fracture. It may cause morbidity and mortality in elderly men and women. The etiologic factors that lead to senile osteoporosis still are unclear. Based on the available experimental and clinical evidence, we update our(More)
The aim of this study was to document and analyze ultrasonographic (US) findings in different types of pediatric fractures. Thirty-nine patients, aged between 1 and 14 years, with a fracture were included in the study. Patients were classified as complete or incomplete fractures. Greenstick fractures, torus fractures and plastic deformations were considered(More)
Intercellular communication mediated by cell surface antigens is important in the maintenance of synovial tissue (ST) integrity. Chronic inflammation is a common feature of osteoarthritis (OA). Cellular attachment to and migration into ST is one of the critical aspects of chronic inflammation. This study was undertaken to examine the tissue distribution of(More)
The authors investigated the reliability of the safe area, which previously was defined to prevent injury to the superior gluteal nerve during the lateral approach to the hip, and its relation to body height. The distance between the point of entry of the superior gluteal nerve into the gluteus medius muscle and the greater trochanter, in the regions which(More)
