Traditional segment transport methods pose major soft tissue and bone problems related to the pin or K wire that fixes the transported bone segment through the soft tissue, especially excursion of the K wire. We designed the cable bone transport technique to prevent these problems and to increase patient comfort. Thirteen patients with bone defects (11 in(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the effectiveness of the Taylor spatial frame (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, TN, USA) in the treatment of complex lower extremity deformities. METHODS The Taylor spatial frame (TSF) was applied to 29 bone segments of 25 patients (12 females, 13 males; mean age 17 years). Indications for the TSF were congenital disorders (n=12), rickets(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the results of radial head excision in the treatment of comminuted radial head fractures. METHODS The study included 20 patients (14 men, 6 women; mean age 34 years; range 21 to 55 years) who underwent radial head excision for comminuted, closed fractures. Sixteen patients had Mason type 3 and four patients had type 4 fractures.(More)
Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a low-grade malignant tumor with a histologic appearance and clinical course between that of a hemangioma and angiosarcoma. It is rarely encountered in the bone. A 48-year-old woman was examined following trauma. A cystic lesion was noted on a plain radiograph of the left foot, destructing the diaphysis of the first(More)
INTRODUCTION Meniscal tears may cause knee pain and functional impairment. Bilateral bucket-handle meniscal tears is an uncommon condition. PRESENTATION OF CASE This report presents the case of a 35-year-old male patient with bilateral bucket handle medial meniscal tears that occurred nonsimultaneously. The lesions were treated arthroscopically with(More)
The Taylor Spatial Frame uses a computer program-based six-axis deformity analysis. However, there is often a residual deformity after the initial correction, especially in deformities with a rotational component. This problem can be resolved by recalculating the parameters and inputting all new deformity and mounting parameters. However, this may(More)
BACKGROUND Developed for the treatment of deformity correction, computer-assisted circular external fixators in recent years have also been used for fracture fixation. In this study, we aimed to present the efficacy of computer-assisted circular external fixator use in open long bone fractures with our new technique. METHODS Between February 2013 and June(More)
Repair of the neglected achilles tendon ruptures can be challenging due to retraction of tendon stumps. Different repair and augmentation techniques were described. This study aims to investigate long-term results of neglected achilles tendon rupture repair with gastrocnemius flaps. Between 1995 and 2005, 21 neglected achilles tendon rupture reconstructions(More)
Displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures are difficult to treat. We determined the functional results and complications of using allografts or equine xenografts in treating these fractures. We reviewed patients seen at our center from May 2011 to December 2014 with Sanders type III or IV unilateral calcaneal fractures treated with locking plates and an(More)
