Although fractures of the midfoot are common, cuneiform fractures are rarely seen. These fractures are frequently associated with other fractures of the midfoot such as Lisfranc fracture-dislocations. However, isolated cuneiform fractures are extremely rare, with few cases reported in the relevant literature. Herein, the authors report 2 cases of isolated(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the changes in fatty degeneration and atrophy of rotator cuff muscles after arthroscopic repair. We further assessed the factors affecting the functional outcomes and integrity of the rotator cuff. One hundred and two prospectively followed patients who underwent single-row arthroscopic repair for full-thickness(More)
The purpose of this study was to review the clinical and radiographic outcomes and report the major complications in a group of hips with Crowe type IV developmental dysplasia that underwent reconstruction with a cementless total hip arthroplasty and a transverse subtrochanteric shortening osteotomy fixed with locking compression plate and screws. Fifteen(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to compare intramedullary nailing (IMN) versus minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) for the treatment of extra-articular distal tibial shaft fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-five consecutive patients with distal extra-articular tibial fractures which were located between 4 and 12 cm(More)
The purpose of this retrospective study was to compare the outcomes and complications of conventional open surgical release and percutaneous needle release in the treatment of trigger thumb. The study comprised 87 patients with trigger thumb who were treated with either open pulley (n=52) or percutaneous (n=32) release between 2008 and 2011. All patients(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the inter- and intraobserver reliability of Crowe and Hartofilakidis classifications in the assessment of developmental dysplasia of the hip in adult patients. Two consultant orthopedic surgeons classified 141 dysplastic hips on 103 standard anterior–posterior pelvis radiographs according to the Crowe and(More)
Posterior elbow dislocations complicated with brachial artery rupture are rare, especially in the absence of an accompanying fracture. Severe acute ischaemia is not clearly evident in some cases and the diagnosis of arterial damage may not be realised because the collateral circulation around the elbow might mask signs of acute arterial disruption. We(More)
The purpose of this study was to present the functional outcomes and complications after primary repair of triceps tendon ruptures (TTR). A retrospective review was performed on eight patients (six males, two females) who underwent transosseous suture repair for TTR. Mayo elbow score, range of motion, muscle strength and patient satisfaction were evaluated(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the results and prognostic factors affecting the outcome of arthroscopic saucerization for discoid lateral meniscus (DLM). METHODS Forty-eight patients who underwent arthroscopic saucerization for DLM between January 2009 and January 2012 in two hospitals were included. There were 21 (43.8%)(More)
Injuries caused by wild boar attacks are rare. A 34-year-old male shepherd sustained injuries caused by a wild boar attack, and was brought to our emergency department. The patient had 2 skin and deep tissue lacerations on the posterior aspect of his thigh. Herein, we discuss the clinical management of a wild boar bite wound with a review of the literature.
