Injuries in the explosion scenarios are usually hollow organ injuries including rapid gas expansion, thermal injuries, penetrating injuries due to secondary projectiles and secondary injuries like falls and burns. Our case is a penetrating injury that was considered open knee fracture (Gustilo Anderson Type 3A) and peroneal nerve palsy in the emergency service after bomb attack but later it was seen that the secondary projectile was a foreign bone and the patient's bone integrity was intact. Our aim is to show that specific human tissues must be considered as a factor in the secondary injuries...

We report a nine-year-old boy with a type IIIa tibial hemimelia, according to the new Paley classification. We describe the x-ray findings, the surgical treatment technique, and the prognostic course of the patient. Descriptions of such cases are very infrequent in the literature and type of treatment is still object of debate.

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...
