OBJECTIVE: The hip rotation centre (HRC) is an important reference point in cases of total hip arthroplasty (THA). The aim of this study is to investigate the reference points in the Turkish population that enable the identification of the HRC in standard pelvic radiographs. METHODS: The pelvic radiographs of 50 women and 50 men were examined. The mean age was 46.2 (range; 18-91). Patients with deformity of the hip joint and non-standard pelvic radiograph due to hip flexion contracture were excluded from the study...

OBJECTIVE: In our retrospective study, we aimed to investigate the differences between the adductor ratio (AR) in knees with and without osteoarthritis, and its validity in determining the articular level. METHODS: Data from 80 knees of 80 patients were retrospectively evaluated. Anteroposterior weight-bearing knee radiographs of the patients with and without osteoarthritis (40 knees in each group) were obtained. The adductor ratio was determined using the following formula: ATJL/FW (adductor tubercle-joint line distance/femoral width)...

One third of the people aged 65 years and over fall every year, and 1-5% of these falls result in a fracture. For these people, history of fracture and surgery become a risk factor for recurrent falls. In osteoporotic patients, repeated fractures often require several osteosynthetic procedures within a short time frame. Despite the lack of biomechanical studies, clinical experience suggests that additional fractures adjacent to implants occur because of the difference in stiffness between the metallic implant and the osteoporotic bone...

OBJECTIVE: Studies have assessed the association between aspartic acid (D)-repeat polymorphism in the gene encoding Asporin (ASPN) and knee osteoarthritis (KOA) risk, but the results were inconclusive and contradictory. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between ASPN gene D-repeat polymorphism and KOA risk. METHODS: Eligible studies were identified by searching several electronic databases for relevant reports published before September 2016...

INTRODUCTION: Untreatable foot problems in diabetics may require lower extremity amputation, which has a high level of patient mortality. This high mortality rate is worse than most malignancies. The present study aimed to identify parameters that can be used to estimate survival in DM patients undergoing below-knee amputations for diabetic foot problems. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 470 patients (299 males, 171 females) with a mean age of 64.32 years who underwent below-knee amputation for diabetic foot problems between 2004 and 2014 were enrolled in the study...

We present a case of isolated intra-acetabular osteochondroma in a 21 year-old male who presented with history of right hip pain for 5 years and difficulty in walking. Patient was managed with excision of intra-articular exostoses through surgical hip dislocation. Intra-articular hip osteochondromas can be a rare cause of hip pain in patients with unexplained etiology, and their diagnosis and management can be challenging.
