Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease and a major cause of disability in young adults. The aims of this study were to assess bone mass in patients with MS in comparison to healthy age- and sex-matched controls, and to evaluate factors influencing bone mineral density (BMD), and the relationship of the pain threshold at peripheral and axial sites with(More)
Subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) is one of the most frequent shoulder pathologies. Initial treatment is conservative. Subacromial injection of drugs achieves a high concentration at the pathologic site with less drug use and fewer systemic side effects. Glucocorticoids are most frequently injected. One concern with steroid use is the wide array of(More)
Radiographic findings of femoroace tabular impingement in the contralateral asymptomatic hip of patients who had undergone total hip arthroplasty because of primary osteoarthritis (n = 44) were compared with controls (n = 40). The centre-edge angle and caput-collum-diaphyseal angle were measured and the presence of crossover sign and a prominent ischial(More)
Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) and myelofibrosis are rare entities in childhood. Myelofibrosis secondary to PHP is also extremely rare. We report a 15-year-old boy presented with generalized weakness, vomiting, and pallor. A parathyroid adenoma was detected on the left distal parathyroid gland. PHP was diagnosed together with hepatosplenomegaly and(More)
Adipocytes are not only for energy storage, but are also functionally active cells, producing biologically active peptides called adipocytokines. Adipocytokines control nutrition, thermogenesis, immunity, thyroid and reproductive hormones, and neuroendocrine functions. One of the most important new members of this family is apelin. In patients with thyroid(More)
Dislocation of hip arthroplasty due to false aneurysm formation is a rarity. Here, we report a case with false aneurysm of the deep femoral artery causing dislocation of bipolar hemiarthroplasty. The patient was first thought to have an infection but the diagnosis of false aneurysm was made during surgery and repaired.
Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease with a high incidence of morbidity and mortality lowering the quality of life with acute and chronic complications and it needs to be followed up and treated throughout the lifespan. Concordant with the frequency of DM and the increase in the length of life frequency of DNP is also increased. The I allele of the ACE(More)
