Scaphocapitate fracture syndrome is rare, complex injury. We report an unusual presentation of scaphocapitate fracture syndrome, involving fracture of the scaphoid and capitate associated with volar dislocation of the lunate and scaphoid and the proximal fragment of the capitate in a 30-year-old male after a motor vehicle accident. Computed tomography was(More)
Fatigue stress fractures of the talus are rare and usually involve the head of the talus in military recruits. We report an uncommon cause of ankle pain due to a fatigue stress fracture of the body of the talus in a 32-year-old male social soccer player. Healing was achieved after weightbearing suppression for 6 weeks. Although rare, a stress fracture of(More)
Macrophages provide a first line of defense against bacterial infection by engulfing and killing invading bacteria, but intracellular bacteria such as Listeria monocytogenes (LM) can survive in macrophages by various mechanisms of evasion. Complement receptor of the immunoglobulin (CRIg), a C3b receptor, binds to C3b on opsonized bacteria and facilitates(More)
Acute calcific tendinitis of the shoulder is a well-known condition, but it is rare in the rectus femoris origin. Mostly reported cases were occurred in the reflected head of the rectus femoris, and only few cases were in the direct head of the rectus femoris. Intraosseous marrow involvement of calcific tendinitis is a more rare condition; it often goes(More)
OBJECTIVES Glucocorticoids, such as dexamethasone (DEX), increase apoptosis in a variety of white cells in nasal polyps and apoptosis is an important factor in the resolution of inflammation. However, the mechanism of glucocorticoids induced apoptosis in nasal polyp remains unclear. In this study the authors evaluated which pathways were engaged in(More)
Bifocal disruption of the knee extensor mechanism is a rare injury. Bifocal proximal and distal avulsion fracture of the patella tendon is extremely rare in adults. Here, the authors report the case of an 84-year-old male patient who developed simultaneous avulsion fracture of the patella tendon from the inferior pole of the patella and the tibial(More)
PURPOSE Occult intertrochanteric fractures are misdiagnosed as isolated greater trochanteric fractures in some cases. We investigated the utility of three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis and outcome management of occult intertrochanteric fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study involved 23(More)
Hanging is a common method of suicide. We present a case of vallecular rupture and cervical spine fracture without an external wound after a failed hanging suicide attempt. Surgical treatment involved posterior fusion of C2 to 3, followed by repair of the vallecular rupture via an external approach. The patient recovered with no residual physical or mental(More)
Water distribution network (WDN) optimization design have been applied various metaheuristic optimization algorithms (i.e., genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, harmony search algorithm, and etc.) and have been efforts to improve the final solution quality. In contrast, in multi-objective problem framework, these kinds of efforts are lacking(More)
