OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the normal acetabular index values in children between 6 months and 8 years of age based on sex, age and side and to define the cutoff values for mild and severe acetabular dysplasia. METHODS The records collected from the data pool that was gathered to define the prevalence of untreated congenital hip(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this prospective randomized study was to compare traction table with manual traction for the reduction and nailing of unstable intertrochanteric femur fractures. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, two-center trial. MATERIALS AND METHODS 72 elderly patients with AO/OTA 31A2 and 31A3 proximal femur fractures were randomized to(More)
OBJECTIVE Bone protein extract (BPE) usually requires a carrier or a scaffold for implantation. We aimed to compare the effect of equine-derived BPE, an osteoinductive agent composed of a high amount of type-I collagen and other bone proteins (Colloss-E), with that of human demineralized bone matrix (DBM) for treating cavitary bone defects not requiring(More)

The purpose of the current study was to clinically evaluate the technique of longer pull-out suture as a transmission suture for early active motion after flexor tendon repair in the proximal zone-2. Eleven patients (eight adult male, two adult female and one child) with 19 proximal zone II flexor tendon lacerations were included. Mean age was 35 years. The(More)
AIM Method of femoral tunnel preparation in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is controversial. In this study, we aimed to determine if there is any difference between the clinical outcomes of two most commonly used drilling techniques; which are conventional trans-tibial (TT) drilling of femoral tunnel and anatomic preparation of femoral(More)

The most common lesion is the subtotal transaction of the vessel. In this report, we aim to define entrapment of axillary(More)
OBJECTIVE This experimental study investigates the effectiveness of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (Dualmesh®, Gore Medical, Flagstaff, AZ, USA), sodium hyaluronate-carboxymethyl cellulose (Seprafilm®, Genzyme, Cambridge, MA, USA), and polysiloxane (silicone) as anti-adhesive barriers for inhibition of fibrosis in the subacromial area following rotator(More)
INTRODUCTION High energy distal radius fractures may cause significant soft tissue injuries. Dorsal displacement of median nerve and flexor tendons to dorsal compartment between distal radioulnar joint was an unreported type of soft tissue injury. PRESENTATION OF CASE 35-Year male admitted following fall from height diagnosed as closed distal radius(More)
