METHODS The study included 23 patients (11 girls, 12 boys; mean age 6 years 3 months; range 4 to 17 years) with spastic cerebral palsy, who underwent single-stage(More)

METHODS Calcaneal lengthening osteotomy was performed using the modified Evans technique in 22 feet of 11 patients (6 males, 5(More)
Isolated sacral fractures are very rare in children. Two children, aged eight and 12 years, presented with an isolated sacral type III fracture and a fracture dislocation, respectively, both of which were not associated with any neurologic problems. Without any attempts for reduction, the fractures healed completely with conservative treatment. These cases(More)
We investigate the concept of Abel continuity. A function f defined on a subset of ℝ, the set of real numbers, is Abel continuous if it preserves Abel convergent sequences. Some other types of continuities are also studied and interesting result is obtained. It turned out that uniform limit of a sequence of Abel continuous functions is Abel continuous and(More)
INTRODUCTION Complete hydatiforme mole with coexisting live fetus (CMCF) is a rare entity. Management for this rare twin pregnancy still remains undetermined. We report the delivery of a healthy baby coexisting with complete mole as twins. There was no other complication during or after the pregnancy. CASE REPORT A 30-year-old multiparous woman was first(More)
INVESTIGATION Combined oral contraceptives use is associated with an increased risk of developing venous and arterial thromboembolic events. Platelet size, measured as mean platelet volume (MPV), is associated with platelet reactivity. METHODS Ninety-five women using oral contraceptives for contraception were investigated retrospectively. The patients'(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the results of triple arthrodesis in rigid foot deformities and assessed the effect of internal fixation on clinical and radiographic results. METHODS Thirty feet of 26 patients (12 females, 14 males; mean age 27 years; range 13 to 55 years) were treated with classic triple arthrodesis. Ten patients (12 feet) underwent temporary(More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS Three groups of women including 23 women with idiopathic hirsutism, 28 women with PCOS and 28 non-hirsute women serving as controls were included into the(More)
Hip dislocations are relatively uncommon in children, they may occur before five years of age as a result of seemingly trivial trauma. A 5-year-old boy was admitted with knee pain six weeks after a fall from bed. Physical examination showed obturator dislocation of the left hip. Owing to the late presentation and without attempting closed reduction, the(More)
