BACKGROUND Several techniques have been proposed to measure translation of the distal radioulnar joint on computed tomography scans, but the criteria for diagnosing abnormal subluxation have not been standardized. The aims of this study were to evaluate the reliability of the current methods and to derive normal population values with these methods. (More)
PURPOSE To compare computed tomography (CT) and clinical stress test findings in terms of the assessment of distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) instability after distal radius fracture. METHODS Thirty-four patients with a healed unilateral distal radius fracture were evaluated after a mean follow-up period of 18 months. Stress test and CT were performed to(More)
Multi way partitioning is an important ex tension of two way partitioning as it provides a natural and direct model for many parti tioning applications In this paper we pro pose a hybrid genetic algorithm for k way partitioning The algorithm includes an ef cient local optimization heuristic which is not based on the bisection method It con siderably(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)
Osteochondromas are the most common benign bone tumors. However, osteochondromas rarely involve the proximal radius. We present the case of a solitary osteochondroma that occurred in a critical area of the proximal radius near the insertion of the biceps tendon and ultimately led to rupture of the tendon. The lesion was confirmed histologically and(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)
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)
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)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the recurrence rate and postoperative residual pain rate after arthroscopic excision of dorsal wrist ganglia and the risk factors for recurrence and residual pain. METHODS A total of 115 wrists (111 patients: 57 men, 54 women; average age 34 years; range, 9 to 72 years) treated with arthroscopic excision for(More)
Previous studies provide evidence that a structure/function correlation exists in the distinct zones of the trigeminal sensory nuclei. To evaluate this relationship, we examined the ultrastructure of afferent terminals from the tooth pulp in the rat trigeminal sensory nuclei: the principalis (Vp), the dorsomedial part of oral nucleus (Vdm), and the(More)
