Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH), also known as Masson's tumor or vegetant intravascular hemangioendothelioma, is a reactive condition representing an exuberant organization and recanalization of a thrombus. It can occur in normal blood vessels or in vascular malformations, perhaps in response to blood vessel injury or thrombosis. In this report, we present the diagnostic and therapeutic courses of a 55 year-old woman and an 18 year-old man, who had a progressive protruding hand mass following a hand contusion...

OBJECTIVE: Chondroblastoma is a benign aggressive tumor which needs surgical treatment and has a recurrence rate up to 35%. Extended (aggressive) curettage is the mainstay of treatment and local adjuvants have been reported to decrease the recurrence rate. METHODS: The recurrence rates and the functional results of 14 patients who were treated in our institution and 2 other patients who were treated elsewhere between the years 2004-2016 were evaluated. Seventeen cases (13 male, 3 female; mean age: 17...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of mucopolysaccharide, vitamin C, and collagen supplementation on the healing of Achilles tendon in rats. METHODS: Sixteen rats were separated into 2 groups. Both Achilles tendons of all rats were transected 5 mm above the insertion and repaired using a Kessler suture. After the surgical repair, the study group received the daily recommended amount of the supplement by gastric gavage, while the control group received a placebo...

PURPOSE: The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes of the patients who underwent primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery with either hamstring autograft or freeze-dried tibialis anterior allograft, which performed by the same surgeon using the same fixation technique. METHODS: In this retrospective study, patients who had primary ACL reconstruction using either four-strand hamstring autograft (FSH) or freeze-dried irradiated tibialis anterior allograft (FDT) between 2012 and 2015 were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: In this experimental study, PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin), HA (Hyaluronic Acid) gel and ADCON® Gel were compared in terms of preventing epidural fibrosis. METHODS: Twenty-eight Sprague-Dawley rats (mean weight, 400-450 g) were divided into 4 groups. L3-L4 laminectomy was performed in each group. Following laminectomy, Adcon® Gel, HA gel and PRF were applied onto the surgery site locally in Group 1, 2 and 3, respectively. Group 4 was maintained as control without any local application...

OBJECTIVE: Redirecting of a laterally misplaced pedicle screw into the accurate position decreases the pull-out strength due to the reinsertion, lateral wall cortical perforation and widening of the pedicle hole. Thus, this biomechanical study was performed to quantitatively analyze the pullout strength of a redirected laterally misplaced pedicle screw into the accurate position. METHODS: Thirty pedicules of 15 bovine vertebrae were separated to 3 groups, according to the screw placement method: 1) standard flawless trajectory; 2) trajectory with lateral pedicle wall perforation; 3) trajectory with lateral wall perforation redirected to the standard trajectory...

OBJECTIVE: One of the most common complications following intramedullary nailing of a tibial shaft fracture is anterior knee pain. The etiology of pain remains unclear. Patellar tendon entry point is the most suspected reason for anterior knee pain. This study, sonographically examined the patellar tendons of patients treated via intramedullary nailing. METHODS: Thirty-two patients with a tibial shaft fracture requiring intramedullary nailing via a transpatellar approach were included in the study...

INTRODUCTION: Radial meniscus tears are seen in young patients, especially with anterior cruciate ligament ruptures. Repair of complete radial meniscus tear is necessary for the meniscus functions. The most important factor for success of the meniscus repair is primary stability, but it is still unknown which technique is ideal repair technique. AIM: We developed a new suture technique named Horizontal Butterfly (HB). In this novel technique the contact between meniscal tissue and suture is more than Horizontal Loop (HL) that routinely used today...

We report a 14-year-old boy who presented with pain in the left foot and ankle for about 9 months. The clinical symptoms of the patient suggested complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). The radiographs and magnetic resonance imaging studies ravealed a bone tumor in the talus, consistent with an osteoblastoma. The patient underwent operative treatment with curettage and grafting. The complaints of the patient completely resolved by 6 months after surgery, and there was no recurrence at the postoperative 23th month follow-up...
