OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the functional and radiological outcomes of vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty in patients with osteoporotic vertebra fractures. METHODS The files of the patients who underwent vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty for osteoporotic vertebrae fractures were retrieved from the archives. Forty-three patients with complete(More)
Ewing's sarcoma (ES) is a small round cell tumor of adolescents or young adults that usually arises in the deep soft tissues of the extremities. The tumor cells have uniform round nuclei, fine powdery chromatin and indistinct nucleoli. CD99 (O13) is a product of the MIC 2 gene that is highly sensitive to ES but not specific. A panel of markers should be(More)
OBJECTIVE Simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with prolonged tourniquet time has the potential to trigger ischemia-reperfusion injury, which can adversely affect knee function. Studies suggest that the magnitude of injury is less if it occurs following an ischemic event which takes place in another part of the body, known as ischemic(More)
AIM Our study reports long-term results and factors related to patient satisfaction in the case of primary hemiarthroplasty for humeral proximal end fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 42 patients with humeral proximal end fractures who underwent primary hemiarthroplasty in our clinic from February 1994 to March 2004. Of the 42(More)
OBJECTIVE Giant cell tumor of bone (GCT) is a primary, osteolytic, benign tumor of the bone. Surgery is the commonly used treatment; however, recurrence remains a problem. Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B (RANKL) is responsible for the formation of osteoclastic cells. Discovery of RANKL and its human monoclonal antibody, denosumab, led to use of(More)
Programmed death-1 (PD-1) and programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) are new targets in cancer immunotherapy in recent years. The aim of this study is to evaluate the PD-1/PD-L1 expressions in sarcomas and to determine association between PD-1/PD-L1 expressions and clinical/pathological properties in some sarcoma subtypes. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded(More)
To investigate plasma tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) levels as an indicator to reflect the magnitude of the destructive inflammatory phase and articular cartilage damage after a knee trauma. Eighteen mature Wistar Albino male rats were divided into two groups equal in number. Nine animals underwent anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT) of the(More)
OBJECTIVE Elastofibroma dorsi (ED) is a rare, benign, soft tissue tumor typically located between inferior corner of scapula and posterior chest wall causing mass, scapular snapping, and pain. When classic symptoms and localization are present, it is diagnosed without biopsy and treated with marginal resection. This study retrospectively analyzed patients(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study assessed functional and radiographic outcomes of distraction osteogenesis treatment of post-traumatic elbow deformities in children. METHODS Eight children were treated between 2008 and 2013 for post-traumatic elbow deformities using distraction osteogenesis. Mean age at time of operation was 10.9 years. Six patients had varus(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the efficacy of a topically applied hemostatic agent used to reduce blood loss in patients undergoing simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS Thirty-two patients (5 male, 27 female) mean age 65 ± 9.3 (46-80) undergoing single-stage bilateral TKA were enrolled in the study and divided in two groups. Groups 1(More)
