OBJECTIVES To evaluate the outcomes of patients with atrophic humeral shaft nonunion (HSNU) treated by Ilizarov frame fixation without the use of bone graft. DESIGN A retrospective review of 28 consecutive patients treated in 1 center between 1996 and 2002. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied 28 consecutive patients: 12(More)
Subtalar dislocation is a rare and severe injury, caused by high-energy trauma such as fall from a height or traffic accident. Infection and avascular necrosis are not rare sequelae of open subtalar dislocation, and the outcome may be poor. External fixation allows complete wound care, and moderate distraction of the ankle joint should unload the talus,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Intraarticular fractures of the tibial plafond (pilon fractures) belong to the group of most severe fractures. They are usually caused by high-energy trauma and frequently associated with a marked soft-tissue damage. Surgical treatment has replaced the traditional nonoperative treatment. The aim of this study was to present the results of the(More)
Blast trauma is a complex event. Pathophysiologically, blast injuries are identified as primary (caused solely by the direct effect of blast overpressure on the tissue), secondary (caused by flying objects or fragments), tertiary (caused by bodily displacement), or quaternary (indirectly caused by the explosion). The range of primary blast injuries includes(More)
Heterotopic ossification represents one of the most frequent complications following any type of hip arthroplasty. However, disagreement exists regarding the clinical significance of heterotopic ossification after total hip arthroplasty (THA). This study evaluated the effect of different grades of heterotopic ossification on range of hip motion, pain, and(More)
UNLABELLED BACGROUND/AIM. Intertrochanteric fractures of the femur are the third most common fractures among all bone fractures. Today in everyday orthopedic practice a number of different methods of treatment of trochanteric fractures of the femur are applied. Despite the improvement in the development of new implants, the percentage of serious(More)
BACKGROUND The aim was to evaluate the analgesic efficacy and safety of the dexketoprofen/tramadol 25 mg/75 mg fixed-dose combination vs dexketoprofen (25 mg) and tramadol (100 mg) in moderate-to-severe acute pain after total hip arthroplasty. METHODS This was a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study in patients experiencing pain of at least(More)
Biomechanical features of long bones indicate that external fixation of long bone fractures have to be balanced according to general transversal stability as more as possible. The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of orientation pins to the general transversal stability of external fixation of fractures of long bones. In this study we have(More)
The purpose of reporting this case is to illustrate a treatment plan for a chronically anteriorly dislocated shoulder associated with an ipsilateral humerus fracture, a condition heretofore not addressed in the literature to our knowledge. An 18-year-old female, left hand dominant, injured her left upper extremity and liver in a motor vehicle accident.(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Distal tibial pilon fractures include extra-articular fractures of the tibial metaphysis and the more severe intra-articular tibial pilon fractures. There is no universal method for treating distal tibial pilon fractures. These fractures are treated by means of open reduction, internal fixation (ORIF) and external skeletal fixation. The high(More)
