The ilioinguinal approach is favoured for fractures of the anterior part of the pelvis, but it is associated with some technical difficulties and it is not suitable for some complex fractures. In 2008, a modified ilioinguinal approach was introduced by Farid Yr which afforded visualisation of the inside and outside of the pelvis. The approach involves(More)
Peroneal nerve palsy has been reported in association with traumatic and nontraumatic causes. We encountered a 75-year-old man whose peroneal nerve palsy developed suddenly following varus deformity of the arthritic knee. A review of the literature found 1 other report describing a progressive peroneal nerve palsy associated with a varus deformity of the(More)
BACKGROUND Sulfur mustard is a chemical warfare agent that produces cellular damage via alkylation and protein cross-linking. Sulfur mustard affects the skin, lungs, and eyes, as well as the gastrointestinal, endocrinal, and hematologic systems. We studied the potential delayed toxic effects of sulfur mustard on white blood cells and some of its derivatives(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is a treatment strategy to relieve the symptoms of coronary artery disease (CAD). Based on determining the long term outcome of CABG using SF-36 Health Related Quality Of Life (HRQOL) questionnaire, the present study was conducted in our center to determine the CABG results one-year after the operation.

She exhibited deformity of both lower extremities. She had deformed(More)
High tibial osteotomy is a method of treating knee osteoarthritis due to genu varum in advanced stages. High tibial osteotomy-associated problems continue to be reported. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical results of a new, innovative method of high tibial osteotomy with 3- to 13-year follow-up. Between 1996 and 2006, our new surgical(More)
