A distal oblique osteotomy on the first metatarsal, with lateral displacement of the metatarsophalangeal joint and internal fixation with a compression screw, was performed. No splint or plaster was used. The operation is relatively simple and effective. Pain and discomfort during a short healing period are minimal. Forty-nine feet were operated on in 42(More)
OBJECTIVE Nut consumption has beneficial effects on protection for development of atherosclerotic process. METHODS Single intervention study design was used to determine the effects of hazelnut-enriched diet (1 g/kg/day) during 4 weeks period on atherogenic tendency of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) by evaluating susceptibility of LDL to oxidation,(More)
Traumatic dislocation of the tibialis tendon occurred from minor ankle sprains in a 37-year-old male and a 53-year-old female. Both complained of local pain at the medial malleolus, and both walked with a limp. The diagnosis was suspected by clinical examination, in one case with 2 months' delay, and verified by ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic(More)
Cases of longstanding (median, 60 months) tarsal tunnel syndrome were decompressed surgically in 14 female and four male patients. Patients reported intermittent dysesthesia, paresthesia, or anesthesia at the medial plantar aspect of the foot. Symptoms were aggravated by physical activities. Previous trauma was noted in four patients. Tinel's sign was(More)
The function of the foot is disturbed by a stiff, painful great toe. This problem can be overcome with a new technique for fusing the first metarsophalangeal joint at the desired angle with the joint surfaces conservatively resected with parallel, oblique cuts. The bones are then approximated and fixed in 20 degrees-30 degrees of dorsoflexion with two(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the clinical and histopathological course of HCV infection acquired before and during or after renal transplantation. METHODS According to HCV status, 197 RT patients were divided into three groups. At the time of RT, anti-HCV antibody was positive in 47 patients (pre-RT HCV group). In 27 patients, in whom(More)
Two patients with spontaneous medial plantar fascia rupture due to a definite injury with no prior symptoms, were referred to our institution. Clinically, there was a tender lump in the sole, and magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the diagnosis. Nonoperative treatment was sufficient in curing the acute total rupture. Endoscopic release was used on the(More)
Several techniques for ankle arthrodesis have been described. Many of them are not suitable in patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis because of multiple joint involvement, osteoporosis, and increased risk of infection caused by poor skin conditions. The arthroscopic technique described in this article has been used in 7 patients with seropositive(More)
BACKGROUND Anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAIDs, have become an important part of the pain management in day surgery. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of Coxib premedication on the intra-operative anaesthetic requirements in patients undergoing elective ankle surgery in general anaesthesia. TYPE OF STUDY Prospective, randomized study of(More)
The authors examined 10 patients who had arthrodesis at the first metatarsophalangeal joint and 10 patients who had Keller's arthroplasty operation. The EMED gait analysis was used to measure the pressure distribution over the sole of the foot during walking. Arthrodesis group had significantly increased maximum pressure in the first and third metatarsal(More)
