OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to measure the area of iliopsoas tendon attachment and the distance of sciatic nerve, medial circumflex femoral artery (MCFA) and quadratus muscle to lesser trochanter tip, before and after 5, 10, 15 mm depth excision of lesser trochanter. METHODS: A total 15 hips of 8 adult male cadavers were evaluated. Distances between lesser trochanter tip, sciatic nerve, the lower edge of quadratus muscle and MCFA; length and width of quadratus muscle insertion; area of iliopsoas muscle and quadratus muscle insertion was measured before and after sequential 5,10 and 15 mm depth trochanterplasties using 5 mm wide burr parallel to the posterior cortex...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this systematic review was to analyze the results of published treatment options in Brucella infection following total joint arthroplasty (TJA). METHODS: We performed a systematic review of the literature regarding outcomes of Brucella infection after TJA (hip and knee). We searched multiple databases for articles in the area published from 1950 to 2016. RESULTS: A total of 18 patients (12 male and 6 female; mean age 59 years) from 14 published studies were identified...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze the risk factors contributing to the misdiagnosis of perilunate injuries. METHODS: The study included patients who had perilunate dislocation or fracture dislocation correctly or incorrectly diagnosed on initial examination between 2008 and 2014. Data related to the length of time until correct diagnosis of the perilunate injury; cause of injury; presence of associated fractures, polytrauma or concomitant trauma in the ipsilateral upper extremity; time between injury and first presentation; first treatment applied; presence of ligamentous perilunar injuries only or fracture and dislocation; inadequate radiographic assessment; and experience of the physicians were recorded and analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether the hip reconstruction has an effect on gross motor function classification system (GMFCS) levels in patients with hip instability in cerebral palsy (CP). METHODS: A total of 45 hips of 30 patients (mean age: 8.7 (4-17) years) with CP operated due to hip instability with a minimum of 2 years of follow-up were included into the study. Migration index was used for classification of the severity of hip instability...

Brown-Sequard syndrome is an uncommon complication of atlantoaxial arthrodesis. A 50-year-old female visited our emergency department after falling from a ladder. Radiologic evaluations revealed chronic C1-2 instability with acute spinal cord injury. The day after atlantoaxial fusion was performed, she developed left-sided motor weakness and the loss of right-sided pain and temperature sensation. Based on physical examination and radiologic findings, we diagnosed her as having Brown-Sequard syndrome. Spine surgeons performing this procedure should therefore consider Brown-Sequard syndrome if a patient displays signs of postoperative hemiplegia...

OBJECTIVES: Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is one of the causes of hip pain in young-adult patients. The purpose of our study is to determine the prevalence of radiological FAI findings in asymptomatic population in Turkey. METHODS: Trauma patients aged 18-65 years who applied to the emergency service between September 2015 and September 2016 were retrospectively evaluated for this study. After a preliminary study and power analysis, 2152 hips of the 1076 previously asymptomatic patients were evaluated radiologically with pelvis antero-posterior and frog-leg radiographs...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the extracorporeal shock wave therapy in the subacromial impingement syndrome and its relationship with the acromion morphology. METHODS: Thirty patients (24 women, 6 men) with subacromial impingement were evaluated. The average age of patients was 53.6 ± 9.8 years (range 39-80). Patients were divided into 3 groups according to the acromion morphology. ESWT 1500 at 0.12 am mL/mm(2) violence was applied once a week for 3 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze the patient demographics, etiology of limb loss as well as reporting SF-36 scores for microprocessor prosthesis users in Turkish population. METHODS: We reviewed 72 patients (61 male and 11 female; mean age: 37.7 ± 10.7) with uni-lateral, above knee amputation and a history of regular and microprocessor prosthesis use. All patients were called back for a last follow-up and they were asked to fill a self-administered general health status questionnaire (SF-36)...

Malignant triton tumor (MTT) is a rare variant of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) made up of both malignant schwannoma cells and malignant rhabdomyoblasts. A 26-years-old male patient was admitted with an asymptomatic gluteal mass. Magnetic resonance imaging showed heterogeneous soft tissue mass and he underwent open biopsy. Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor was diagnosed. He was given adjuvant chemotherapy following the removal of the tumor with hip disarticulation. The tumor was diagnosed as "malignant triton tumor" based on pathological examination including immunohistochemical studies...

This article presents a 48-year-old male patient who presented with pain in the left forearm and weakness and clumsiness in the left hand of 6 months' duration. Flexor motor strength loss of the thumb and the index finger was present and neurophysiologic tests showed findings compatible with axonal injury in the anterior interosseous nerve (AIN) innervated muscles. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a space-occupying lesion in the proximal forearm resembling a glomus tumor. Excision of the mass and release of the AIN were performed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the microarchitecture of the greater tuberosity with or without rotator cuff tear and to obtain optimum location for anchor screw insertion for rotator cuff repair. METHODS: Twenty-five humeral heads were harvested from 13 male cadavers of mean age 58.4 years, including 6 humeri with rotator cuff tear and 19 intact humeri. Six regions of interest (proximal, intermediate, and distal zones of the superficial and deep regions) were divided into the anterior (G1), middle (G2), and posterior (G3) areas of the greater tuberosity...
