Ultrasonography has become accepted as a useful imaging modality in the early detection of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). The purpose of this study was to investigate the extent to which ultrasonographic measurements of femoral head coverage correspond to the categories of hip maturity defined by Graf’s angle α. The infants in this study (1,037(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated surgical treatment of patients with chondromyxoid fibroma. METHODS The study included 11 patients (6 females, 5 males; mean age 31 years; range 8 to 53 years) who underwent surgical treatment for chondromyxoid fibroma. The most common site of involvement was the tibia in three patients. Diagnosis was made preoperatively by tru-cut(More)
This study examined the outcomes of ultrasound-monitored Pavlik harness treatment in 25 infants (2 boys and 23 girls) representing a total of 31 cases of developmental dysplasia of the hip of Graf type IIc or more severe. For all infants, Pavlik harness treatment started after ultrasonographic diagnosis in our clinic. If there was no improvement by the(More)
Scapular mobility plays a central role in normal shoulder function, and alterations in scapular mobility have been suggested as a factor in impingement syndrome. We therefore measured the effect of restricted scapular mobility during arm abduction on acromiohumeral and coracohumeral distances. For the control measurements, healthy volunteers (n = 10, all(More)
BACKGROUND Universal ultrasound screening has led to overtreatment and higher follow-up rates than are found with clinical examination alone because of high incidence of physiologically immature hips (type IIa) in the first weeks of life. The ability to predict future acetabular development in physiologically immature hips (type IIa) would therefore help to(More)
UNLABELLED This study assessed the use of semirigid hip orthosis to stabilize the femoral head into the acetabulum in the delayed treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH; Graf type IIb or more severe) under the age of 6 months. Ninety-eight hips from 75 patients (four boys, 71 girls) were evaluated retrospectively. The mean age at treatment(More)
PURPOSE Ankaferd Blood Stopper (ABS), which is a standardized mixture of herbal extracts obtained from five plants, has been proven as an efficient hemostatic agent and is still used in emergency situations. It is not known exactly if decreased bleeding has positive or negative effects on muscle healing and fibrosis, so the purpose of this study was to test(More)
We would like to comment on the article by Cebesoy et al. entitled “Percutaneous release of the trigger thumb: is it safe, cheap and effective?” [2]. First, we would like to congratulate the authors for their contribution to the relevant literature. We know that percutaneous A1 pulley release is being increasingly used as an alternative to open surgical(More)
Compressive and entrapment neuropathy of the peroneal nerve is the most common entrapment syndrome in the lower limbs, often caused by mechanical or dynamic compression of a segment of nerve at the level of the fibula head. Because of its special anatomic situation, external compression while under trauma or traction is quite easy. A case of entrapment(More)
