Osteoid osteoma and osteoblastoma are commonly seen benign osteogenic bone neoplasms. Both tumors are typically seen in the second decade of life, with a notable predilection in males. Histologically, these tumors resemble each other, with characteristically increased osteoid tissue formation surrounded by vascular fibrous stroma and perilesional sclerosis.(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to analyse the applicability and advantages of the intraoperative use of a mobile isocentric C-arm with three-dimensional imaging (Siremobil ISO-C-3D) in fixation of intraarticular fractures. METHODS After the fixation was judged to be satisfactory relying on the images provided by routine fluoroscopy,(More)
The purpose of this article was to systematically analyze the results of published studies in the literature which evaluated the use of arthroscopically assisted techniques in intra-articular fracture fixation. Published investigations to date were analyzed by classifying them according to joints that were involved with intra-articular fractures including:(More)
Tendon-to-bone healing is vital to the ultimate success of the various surgical procedures performed to repair injured tendons. Achieving tendon-to-bone healing that is functionally and biologically similar to native anatomy can be challenging because of the limited regeneration capacity of the tendon-bone interface. Orthopaedic basic-science research(More)
Bipartite patella is usually an asymptomatic, incidental finding. However, in adolescents, it may be a cause of anterior knee pain following trauma or a result of overuse or strenuous sports activity. Most patients improve with nonsurgical treatment. Surgery is considered when nonsurgical treatment fails. Excision of the fragment is the most popular(More)
The purpose of this study is to analyze the results of intramedullary fixation of pathological humeral shaft fractures using an unreamed humeral nail (UHN). Twenty-one consecutive patients with 24 humeri fractured secondary to metastatic disease were retrospectively reviewed. The primary tumors included carcinomas of breast (11), kidney (2), multiple(More)
Computer-assisted orthopaedic surgery (CAOS) is performed by digitizing the patient's anatomy, combining the images in a computerized system, and integrating the surgical instruments into the digitized image background. This allows the surgeon to navigate the surgical instruments and the bone in an improved, virtual visual environment. CAOS in traumatology(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of local endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) therapy on bone regeneration in a rat model. A segmental bone defect (5 mm) was created in the femur and fixed with a mini-plate. There were two groups: EPC-treated (N = 28) and control (N = 28). Seven animals were sacrificed from each group at 1, 2, 3, and 10(More)
Purpose of this case–control study was to evaluate the feasibility and advantages of arthroscopically assisted reduction and internal fixation of isolated medial malleolar fractures and compare the outcomes with conventional open reduction and internal fixation. Forty-seven patients with medial malleolar fractures were grouped into two: arthroscopy-assisted(More)
Mastering rapidly evolving orthopaedic surgical techniques requires a lengthy period of training. Current work-hour restrictions and cost pressures force trainees to face the challenge of acquiring more complex surgical skills in a shorter amount of time. As a result, alternative methods to improve the surgical skills of orthopaedic trainees outside the(More)
