This prospective randomized study compared unilateral and bilateral spinal anesthesia with respect to intraoperative and postoperative complications, and time to discharge from hospital for knee arthroscopies in outpatients. We studied 70 ASA I patients scheduled for elective outpatient knee arthroscopy. The patients were randomly allocated into two groups(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the radiographic results and clinical outcome of unreamed tibial nailing (UTN) and Ilizarov external fixation (IEF) for the treatment of type IIIA open fractures of the tibia. Sixty-one patients with open type IIIA tibial shaft fractures were treated with an IEF (n = 32) or UTN (n = 29). Both groups were compared for(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a grafting technique using either periosteum or bone marrow as an adjunct, would reconstitute more favorable tendon anchorage morphology with improved tensile strength in a bone tunnel model. We hypothesized that autogenous bone marrow aspirate can enhance the tendon–bone attachment as well as a freshly(More)
UNLABELLED Eleven patients with femoral diaphyseal nonunions after intramedullary nailing were treated with cyclic compression and distraction with an external fixator over the nail. We evaluated the limitations of this technique and whether patients having this closed procedure could achieve union without additional operative procedures. Patients with(More)
Inferior dislocation of the glenohumeral joint or luxatio erecta humeri is a rare form of injury, accounting for only 0.5% of all shoulder dislocations. Bilateral cases are even less frequent, with only eight cases reported in the literature. We report one case of bilateral inferior dislocation of the shoulder. The patient made a complete functional(More)
In this study a comparison of patients with midclavicular nonunion, treated by a combination of internal fixation with dynamic compression plate (DCP) or low-contact DCP (LC-DCP) and application of autogenous corticocancellous chips or sculptured graft on nonunion areas, was performed. Time to union in the patients treated with LC-DCP fixation was shorter(More)
The sartorius muscle is a rare location of primary hydatid cyst. In this report, the clinical, pathologic, and radiologic features are discussed, with special emphasis on the pathologic and radiographic features. We report a case of hydatid cyst of the proximal thigh in an eight-year-old girl. Magnetic resonance (MR) images revealed muscular hydatid cyst in(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the results of patients who were treated with Ilizarov external fixation for type II and III open tibial fractures. METHODS Forty-five patients (4 females, 41 males; mean age 33 years; range 8 to 65 years) with open tibial fractures were treated with the Ilizarov external fixator. According to the Gustilo-Mendoza classification,(More)
To investigate the effects of free oxygen radicals and various antioxidants on bone healing after experimental formation of fracture. Fifty male rats were used and divided into five groups (ten rats in each). The right forelimbs of the rats were broken by bimanual compression method. One hour before this procedure, 5 ml/kg of intraperitoneal (i.p.)(More)
This study compared the analgesic effect of intra-articular injection of tenoxicam with that of morphine on postoperative pain after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Forty-two patients undergoing arthroscopically ACL reconstructions using hamstring tendons underwent the same anesthetic protocol. The patients were randomized to receive 25 ml(More)
