Although the intramedullary nailing is thought to be the method of choice for treatment of closed tibial shaft, there is ongoing debate on the optimal surgical approach in patients with open types of these fractures. In addition, choosing between the reamed and unreamed intramedullary nailing is still an issue for the orthopedic surgeons. In present study,(More)
BACKGROUND Evaluating demographic characteristics, distribution and types of orthopedic injuries following major earthquakes may be helpful in future planning for disasters. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to analyze data from trauma patients with extremity injury resulting from the earthquakes of East Azerbaijan, Iran. PATIENTS AND METHODS Medical records(More)
BACKGROUND Low-intensity ultrasound is a biophysical intervention on a fracture repair process. However, the effect of low-intensity ultrasound therapy on fracture healing is controversial. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) therapy on the fracture healing process, including mineral density and(More)
Epidural abscess of the spinal column is a rare condition that can be fatal if left untreated. It promptly progresses and can cause neurologic paralysis, urinary retention or cauda equina syndrome. Compromised immune system that occurs in patients with diabetes mellitus, AIDS, chronic renal failure, alcoholism, or cancer is a predisposing factor. It mostly(More)
INTRODUCTION Knee deformity associated with osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common complications seen in patients referred to orthopaedic surgeons. High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is an accepted method for treatment of medial knee osteoarthritis with varus deformity. The aim of this study was to compare results of osteotomy methods in patients with genu(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the interobserver agreement of the Lenke and King classifications for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, and to compare the results of surgery performed based on classification of the scoliosis according to each of these classification systems. METHODS The study was conducted in Shohada Hospital in Tabriz,(More)
High tibial osteotomy methods include open and closed wedge techniques. The study aims at comparing results of osteotomy methods in patients suffering from genu varum deformity. In a cohort study, 32 patients with genu varum deformity (42 knees) were evaluated. They were divided into two groups and matched according to age and gender. The patients were(More)
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a biophysical form of intervention in the fracture-repair process, which, through several mechanisms, accelerates the healing of fractures and enhances callus formation. The effect of laser on fracture healing is controversial. Some authors affirm that LLLT can accelerate bone formation by increasing osteoblastic activity.(More)
Titanium Elastic Nails (TEN) are commonly used to stabilize femoral fractures in school-aged children, but there have been few studies assessing the risk of traditional traction and application of spica cast. The aim of this study was to compare of titanium elastic nails with traction and spica cast in treatment of children's femoral shaft fractures. A(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare ender nails and unreamed interlocking nails in a randomized clinical trial study. METHODS From March 2001 to March 2003, 131 patients with tibial fractures of the central two thirds of the tibia were admitted to the emergency ward of Shohada Hospital, Tabriz, Iran and were randomized to either an ender tibial nail or an undreamed(More)
