BACKGROUND Comminuted fractures of the patella are traditionally treated by internal fixation. The modified tension-band technique is widely accepted for internal fixation. The management of comminuted fractures often requires additional K-wire and/or circlage material and wide surgical exposure. Therefore, symptoms and complications related to the(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study we evaluated the stability and effectiveness of the double tension band osteosynthesis technique compared to the double plate osteosynthesis technique used for fixation of distal humerus fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was performed on two groups, and in each group eight cadaveric, elderly (mean age 70-80) human humeri(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to report our functional results after an intramedullary Kirschner wires (K-wires) and tension band wiring combination for the treatment of a large group of humeral head fractures was performed. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy-four patients (54 females, 20 males; mean age 42 years; range 24 to 73 years) who had proximal(More)
OBJECTIVES Transscaphoid perilunate fracture-dislocations are complex injuries. The aim of this study is to discuss and compare open reduction and internal fixation for acute and delayed transscaphoid perilunate fracture-dislocations and review the literature. DESIGN The design of this study is retrospective and randomized. SETTINGS Gülhane Military(More)
OBJECTIVE The ideal reduction method for anterior shoulder dislocation is defined as a practical technique applied without any assistance and minimizing patient interference. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of patients with shoulder dislocations reduced using the chair method in the emergency department and show that the chair method is(More)
Disarticulation of the thumb at the metacarpophalangeal joint level is not beneficial either aesthetically or functionally without additional surgery because it requires a bulky and an unacceptable prosthesis to be made for this amputation level. In this study, the authors have presented our experience of 12 metacarpal distractions in thumb amputated(More)
Bilateral femoral neck fractures are generally associated with high-energy trauma or defects in bone metabolism. We present a patient who had not been subjected to high-energy trauma and in whom there was no bone metabolism disorder.
Pediatric supracondylar fractures of the humerus are generally associated with neurovascular complications due to the deformity and sharp nature of bone fragments. When treated inadequately, these injuries may result in catastrophic complications, such as Volkmann's contracture and amputation. To our knowledge, late onset brachial arterial thrombosis and(More)
