OBJECTIVES The importance of proprioception in the etiology, treatment, and prevention of sports injuries and joint diseases has become increasingly clear. The purpose of this study was to investigate knee proprioception in patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). METHODS The study included 28 patients (18 females, 10 males; mean age 28 years;(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the short-term results of metatarsal head resurfacing hemiarthroplasty in the treatment of advanced hallux rigidus. We reviewed 14 consecutive patients (5 males [35.71%], 9 females [64.29%]; mean age, 58.7 ± 7.4 years). These patients underwent first metatarsal head resurfacing hemiarthroplasty (HemiCAP(®))(More)
The purpose of the present study concerning high-strength sutures was to determine whether increasing the number of locking loops with different size sutures or decreasing the suture size with increased suture strands would have any influence on the strength of Achilles tendon repair. A total of 32 fresh bovine Achilles tendon specimens were randomly(More)
The accessory navicular bone is one of the most symptomatic bones of the foot. Although it has been reported to be present in various members of the same family, there is a lack of knowledge about its inheritance in the literature. We examined three families and suggest that it has an autosomal dominant trait with incomplete penetrance.
Tennis elbow defines a condition of pain and tenderness over the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. The exact aetiology of the injury is not yet fully understood. The major constituent of tendons is type 1 collagen which is encoded by COL1A1 gene. The aim of the study was to determine whether Sp1 binding site polymorphism (SNP rs1800012; 1546G/T) within the(More)
AIM Pseudomyogenic (epithelioid sarcoma-like) hemangioendothelioma is a rare local aggressive vascular tumor. Herein we present a 54-year-old male patient with a tumor on his index finger. CASE The patient presented with a 1-year history of pain and swelling that progressively exacerbated. Bone invasion was observed on the middle phalanx via direct(More)
BACKGROUND Tennis elbow entails pain and tenderness over the lateral epicondyle. The exact cause of the condition is not fully understood. Type V collagen is a minor fibrillar collagen that intercalates with type I collagen and forms collagen fibrils. It is encoded by the COL5A1 gene. Sequence variants within COL5A1 3'-UTR have been implicated in(More)
We report on a gamma-ray coincidence analysis using a mixed array of hyperpure germanium and cerium-doped lanthanum tri-bromide (LaBr3:Ce) scintillation detectors to study nuclear electromagnetic transition rates in the pico-to-nanosecond time regime in 33,34P and 33S following fusion-evaporation reactions between an 18O beam and an isotopically enriched(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to examine the motion and stability of the adjacent segment following rigid fixation of the lumbar spine. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 17 fresh-frozen lamb lumbar spines (including the sacrum to T12). Biomechanical testing was performed using an axial compression testing machine. Axial compression was applied to all(More)
Vertical mattress configuration is the strongest of all other configurations and the repairing devices of meniscus repair. The purpose was whether increasing the inclination angle between two strands of the vertical mattress configuration by increasing the amount of meniscus tissue captured would enhance the initial strength of the construction. A 2-cm long(More)
