In this paper, we report a case of a 23-year-old male patient with bilateral absence of the flexor pollicis brevis and abductor pollicis brevis muscles with an intact functioning opponens pollicis and flexor pollicis longus muscles with bilateral thenar atrophy due to its rarity. All physical, neurological, ultrasonographic, direct radiographic,(More)
AIM In mild and moderate idiopathic scoliosis (IS), posterior only instrumentation and fusion can provide satisfactory reduction. However in severe and rigid curvatures, combined anterior and posterior fusion is generally required. In this study we have aimed to evaluate the efficacy of posterior only instrumentation in severe thoracolumbar(More)
An injury to the spinal accessory nerve is mostly reported after surgical procedures performed in the posterior triangle of the neck. In addition, it may be caused by fractures in the jugular foramina, traumas or skull base tumors. Clinically, paralysis of the trapezius muscle leads to weakness, downward rotation of the scapulae and falling down of the(More)
