PURPOSE To study high frequency sonographic in the examination of plantar fasciitis (PF), which is a common cause of heel pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS Our study was done with 25 PF (21 unilateral, 4 bilateral) and 15 control cases of similar age, weight and gender. In this study, the plantar fascial thickness (mainly), fascial echogenity and biconvexity(More)
OBJECTIVES Conservative treatment should be tried prior to surgical treatment in knee osteoarthritis. This study was designed to evaluate the short-term effects of mud-pack therapy on pain relief and functional improvement in knee osteoarthritis in comparison with intra-articular hyaluronic acid injections. METHODS The study included 23 patients who were(More)
Acromioclavicular joint dislocation with intact coracoclavicular ligaments accompanied by fracture of the coracoid process is a rare injury. The patients are treated with conservative and/or surgical methods. A 30-year-old male patient developed type 3 acromioclavicular dislocation and coracoid process fracture due to a fall in the right shoulder. Both(More)
OBJECTIVE Statins stimulate bone formation by inducing the expression of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP-2). The aim of our study was to investigate the effects of orally administered simvastatin on spinal fusion in rats. METHODS Twenty rats were randomized into a spinal fusion group (SF) (n=10) or a spinal fusion and oral simvastatin administered group(More)
Atraumatic bilateral patellar tendon rupture is a rare entity. It is usually due to systemic or local disorders causing tendon degeneration. Early diagnosis and surgical treatment are crucial for recovery of knee functions. Atraumatic bilateral patellar tendon rupture was diagnosed in a 31-year-old female patient who had been receiving steroid therapy for(More)
OBJECTIVES In this study, we investigated the antioxidant protective effects of melatonin on skeletal muscles of Wistar albino-type rats with acute ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight Wistar albino-type male rats weighing between 334 to 422 g were included in this experimental study. The rats were randomly allocated into(More)
OBJECTIVES Microfracture and periosteal transplantation techniques were combined in order to enhance the quality of repair for the treatment of full-thickness cartilage defects. METHODS In 40 mature New Zealand white rabbits, a full-thickness cartilage defect of 4 mm was induced on the weight-bearing surfaces of the medial condyles of the right femur. The(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the short-term results of opening focal dome osteotomy in the treatment of varus gonarthrosis associated with medial laxity. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventeen knees of 16 patients with varus gonarthrosis associated with medial laxity (15 females, 1 male; mean age 51.6 years; range 45 to 58 years) were managed with opening focal dome(More)
Congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle is a rare condition of unknown etiology. It usually presents as a painless mass in the clavicular region; however, it may sometimes be associated with pain and weakness in the shoulder. We presented a 21-year-old male patient who had pain and weakness in the right shoulder during sportive and daily vigorous(More)
OBJECTIVES Hyaluronic acid (HA) is used in osteoarthritis, especially for the control of pain. In this study, we investigated the effect of intra-articular HA on experimental osteoarthritis of early stage. METHODS Osteoarthritis was induced in both knees of 10 rabbits by transecting the anterior cruciate ligament under intramuscular anesthesia with(More)
