OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the expression of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha protein in the subcutaneous and visceral adipose tIssue in correlation with adipocyte cell Volume, serum TNF-alpha, soluble TNF-receptor-2 (sTNFR-2) and indirect parameters of insulin resistance in overweight/obese and lean healthy persons.

We examined the incidence of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the healthy femoral head in unilateral hip dysplasia at the end of the use of the Pavlik harness. The evaluation of AVN was done with the help of standardised roentgenograms. Between 1974 and 1982, 1,064 dysplastic hips (869 children) were treated with the Pavlik harness at the Orthopaedic Department(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica is characterized by irregular overgrowth of cartilage in the epiphysis, usually affecting the knee and ankle. We treated 7 children by surgery between 1980 and 2005. After reporting one child case, we summarize our cases and the cases described in the literature. METHOD We discuss the diagnosis of(More)
We reviewed radiographs of 76 hips in 41 patients with cerebral palsy treated with open adductor tenotomy because of hip subluxation. The majority of patients suffered from spastic diplegia. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of adductor release on hip subluxation. We measured the centre-edge angle and migration percentage pre-operatively and 1(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effectiveness of lengthening the humerus in children and young adults. Between 1984 and 2005, the Orthopaedic Department of Semmelweis University elongated 11 humeri (ten patients) for reasons of congenital hypoplasia (four cases), osteomyelitis (three cases), epiphyseolysis, growth plate closure after irradiation(More)
The purpose of this study was to establish a nomogram in order to predict limb length discrepancies in children with unilateral fibular hemimelia more accurately. In 31 children with unilateral fibular hemimelia the femoral-tibial length and skeletal age were determined an average of seven times per case by sequential radiographs during growth. From the(More)
In a survey of 49 children idiopathic growth hormone deficiency, a sex ratio of 3 : 2 was found. Multiple pituitary hormone deficiency (MPHD) was seen in 31 and isolated growth hormone deficiency (IGHD) in 18 cases. The incidence of breech delivery was 32.5%; it occurred more frequently in MPHD than in IGHD. In one family there were two affected brothers(More)
Direct intraosseous injection of fibrosing agent is widely used in the treatment of aneurysmal bone cysts. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the consequences of fibrosing agent penetrating the medulla of bones. This may be the case when, by mistake, the fibrosing agent is administered into the medulla or when the wall of the cyst ruptures and(More)
