AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of calcium channel blocker (CCB) amlodipine (AML), platelet rich plasma (PRP), and a mixture of both materials on bone healing. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-six male Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups: group A, tibia defect model with no treatment; group B, tibia defect model treated(More)
A 16-year-old boy presented with a patellar mass and anterior knee pain without any trauma. On physical and radiologic assessment, a mass at the superolateral edge of the patella and a hyperintense lesion on T2 sequences of magnetic resonance imaging was detected. Excisional biopsy revealed a chondroma of patella. Primary bone tumors of the patella are(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effect of extracorporeal shock wave treatment (ESWT) on bony union using volume analysis of the callus mass by computed tomography and histology. METHODS Both radii of 13 rabbits were osteotomised and a defective bony nonunion created by placing a polyethylene pad between the osteotomy site for 40 days. Nonunion was confirmed by(More)
Dear Editor We read the article by Zhou et al. with great interest [1]. The authors conducted a study to investigate the biomechanics of the pelvis reconstructed with a modular hemipelvic prosthesis using finite element (FE) analysis. At the end of the study, they found that stress distribution of the postoperative pelvis was similar to that in the normal(More)
BACKGROUND Screw fixation of syndesmotic injuries facilitates ligament healing and restoration of ankle stability, but failure of the screw might threaten the success of the treatment. Screw design parameters, such as outer diameter, inner diameter, thread pitch, leading edge radius, trailing edge radius, leading edge angle, and trailing edge angle, might(More)
[Purpose] To compare outcomes of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction after open kinetic chain (OKC) exercises and closed kinetic chain (CKC) exercises. [Subjects and Methods] The subjects comprised 11 female and 47 male patients who are randomly divided into two groups: which performed a CKC exercise program Group I and Group II which performed(More)
Stress fracture of the femoral neck in skeletally immature individuals is a rare condition and generally seen as compressive type. Because the condition may lead to disastrous complications, femoral neck stress fracture must also be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of pediatric hip pain. We present a case of compressive-type stress fracture of the(More)
Closed-wedge high tibial osteotomy (CW-HTO) requires shortening of the fibula or the fibular head or disruption of the proximal tibiofibular joint (PTFJ). However, no study has evaluated the proximal tibiofibular joint after the osteotomy. The aim of this study was to investigate the fate of the PTFJ after CW-HTO applied with using PTFJ disruption method.(More)
A 38-yr-old woman reported intermittent pain, paresthesia, and weakness in the right upper limb and sweating on the right side of her face and ipsilateral upper limb during the last 4 yrs. Eventually, she was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, whereby sympathetic nervous system involvement was thought to ensue because of idiopathic tumoral calcinosis(More)
Hydatid cyst (HC) disease is a zoonotic disease caused by the larvae of Echinococcus granulosus. We report our experience of treating HC manifesting aggressive characteristics. Between January, 2010 and December, 2013, 40 patients underwent surgery for HC disease in our department. The subjects of this study were six patients whose disease followed an(More)
