The aim of the study was to compare the efficacies of steroid injections guided by scintigraphy, ultrasonography, and palpation in plantar fasciitis. A total of 35 heels of 27 patients were randomly assigned to three steroid injection groups: palpation-guided (pg), ultrasound-guided (ug), and scintigraphy-guided (sg). Patients were evaluated for pain(More)
Intrathecal morphine is administered to provide profound and prolonged analgesia, and to treat acute postoperative pain. We compared the effectiveness of hyperbaric bupivacaine alone and in combination with morphine for unilateral spinal anesthesia in patients undergoing knee arthroscopy. Sixty patients were randomly allocated to two groups to receive(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of strontium ranelate (SrR) on fracture healing in the osteoporotic rat model. Forty female Sprague-Dawley rats aged 3 months were enrolled in the study. Osteoporosis was induced by bilateral ovariectomy and subsequent daily heparin injection started 1 week after surgery and lasted for 4 weeks. Osteoporosis(More)
This study was performed to evaluate the treatment of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) type I with stellate ganglion blockade. We performed three blockades at weekly intervals in 22 patients with CRPS type I in one hand. The patients were divided into two groups depending on the time between symptom onset and treatment initiation. Group 1and 2 patients(More)
Patellar tendinopathy is characterized by activity-related anterior knee pain. It is most commonly related to sports activity, but has also been reported in the non-athletic population. Most injuries are caused by microtrauma, resulting in tendinitis or tendinosis. Extraskeletal paraarticular osteochondromas, which occur in the soft tissues near the joint,(More)
Lateral epicondylitis is a common disorder characterized by pain and tenderness over the lateral epicondyle. It occurs most frequently as a result of minor, unrecognized trauma during sports activities and occupation-related physical activities. The goal of this study was to evaluate the short-, medium-, and long-term effects of corticosteroid injection,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of high-dose extracorporeal shockwave therapy applied with an ankle block and corticosteroid injection in patients with plantar fasciitis whose symptoms persisted for more than 6 months. METHODS Sixty patients were assessed clinically at presentation and at 3-month follow-up with a(More)
Treatment of implant-related chronic osteomyelitis is often difficult and usually consists of implant removal, extensive surgical debridement, and prolonged antibiotic use. This study was performed to assess the efficacy of moxifloxacin compared to a glycopeptide, teicoplanin in chronic implant-related methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA)(More)
BACKGROUND The histologic and biomechanical effects of intra-articular hyaluronic acid on the anterior cruciate ligaments of rats were investigated. METHODS Thirty rats were divided into three groups, i.e., the hyaluronic acid group, saline group, and control group. The hyaluronic acid and saline groups received a total of four intra-articular injections,(More)
INTRODUCTION Patellar tendon ossification is a rare pathology that may be seen as a complication after sleeve fractures of the tibial tuberosity, total patellectomy during arthroplasty, intramedullary nailing of tibial fractures, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with patellar tendon autograft and knee injury without fracture. However, its(More)
