OBJECTIVES This retrospective study was performed to evaluate transfusions in orthopedic surgery and, in the light of our successful practice, to contribute to the development of appropriate transfusion policies in Turkey. METHODS In this study 1,811 female patients who underwent orthopedic elective or emergency surgery from January 1997 to December 1999(More)
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)
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)
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)

BACKGROUND/AIM Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency results in several kinematic changes in the lower extremities. The aim of this study is to define the plantar pressure parameters in ACL-deficient patients and to show the effect of ACL reconstruction on dynamic plantar pressure. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty patients with unilateral ACL rupture and(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)
OBJECTIVES 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. METHOD Eleven patients (eight adult male, two adult female and one child) with 19 proximal zone II flexor tendon lacerations were included. Mean(More)
BACKGROUND Delayed union of fractured bone is one of the main problems of orthopedics and traumatology practice. It was hypothesized that the beneficial effects of allogeneic platelet-rich plasma (PRP) would be valuable in the treatment of segmental bone defects. This study is a comparison of the effects of demineralized bone matrix (DBM) and PRP in a(More)
