Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction is an effective option for the treatment of recurrent patellar instability. Most techniques utilize the passage of a tendon graft through tunnels at the patella with the risk of patellar fracture. The purpose of this study was to investigate the strength of the recent MPFL reconstruction techniques(More)
BACKGROUND Among the most important predictors of functional results of treatment of syndesmotic injuries is the accurate restoration of the syndesmotic space. The purpose of this study was to investigate the reduction performance of screw fixation and suture-button techniques using images obtained from computed tomography (CT) scans. METHODS Patients at(More)
OBJECTIVES For displaced supracondylar humeral fractures in children, in the event of closed reduction failure, anatomic reduction is achieved via open reduction techniques; however, there are no confirmative reports among the published open reduction approaches that deliver the best functional and cosmetic results. Here, we compared long-term functional(More)
INTRODUCTION Synovial chondromatosis is characterized by the presence of metaplastic cartilage nodules originating from the synovia, bursa and tendon sheaths. Although it is extremely rare in the ankle joint, malignant transformation is possible. The choice of treatment is usually open surgery for excision of loose bodies and synovectomy. Limited data is(More)
Anterior knee pain is a common symptom after intramedullary nailing in tibia shaft fracture. Moreover, patellofemoral malalignment is also known to be a major reason for anterior knee pain. Patellofemoral malalignment predisposes to increased loading in patellar cartilage. In the previous study, we have demonstrated the quadriceps atrophy and patellofemoral(More)
The AA. report the results of an experimental investigation on 60 subjects who underwent surgery for advanced stage carcinoma of the glottic larynx and treated with alpha 2b recombinant interferon at the dosage of 3,000,000 ul three times a week, before a six-months follow-up. The patients were examined also as to the respiratory functionality and the(More)
The aims of this study were to evaluate sagittal plane alignment in patients with chondromalacia patella via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), analyse the relationships between the location of the patellar cartilaginous lesions and sagittal alignment and finally investigate the relationships between the sagittal plane malalignment and patellofemoral(More)
AIM To compare the operation time, blood loss, and early outcomes of acetabular components with and without the screw. METHODS Thirty patients who underwent cementless acetabular component with or without screw and whose follow-up exceeded one year period in total hip arthroplasty were evaluated. A posterior approach was used in all surgical procedures by(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of our study was to develop a smartphone-aided end vertebra selection method and to investigate its effectiveness in Cobb angle measurement. METHODS Twenty-nine adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients' pre-operative posteroanterior scoliosis radiographs were used for end vertebra selection and Cobb angle measurement by standard method(More)
BACKGROUND The Chertsey test has been recently defined as an intraoperative test for the detection of the syndesmotic injuries by the application of intra-articular contrast. However, no study has investigated the reliability and comparative analysis of the Chertsey test. The purpose of this study was to explore the diagnostic accuracy of the Chertsey test(More)
