In this article, we present two middle-aged female patients with ulna fracture or medial meniscal tear resulting from dog-related injuries, which are not common. Both patients mentioned that pain started after their dogs pulled away their collar ropes strongly and suddenly. Both patients had postmenopausal osteoporosis and degenerative osteoarthritis. For this reason, ulna fracture and meniscus tear had developed with low-energy trauma resulting from dog-related injuries.

As general opinion, conservative treatment is usually suggested for closed humeral shaft fractures with radial nerve palsy; however, some authors advocate early surgical exploration, particularly for spiral fractures of the humerus accompanied with radial nerve palsy. In this article, we present a case of radial nerve palsy after fracture of the proximal-middle third of humeral shaft. A surgical exploration of the nerve revealed that the sharp tip of the bony fragment at fracture site was penetrated into the nerve and separated the nerve as two bands, almost like a ″buttonhole″ injury...

Congenital dislocation of the patella is a disorder that presents with dysfunction in extensor mechanism. Although congenital dislocation of the patella mostly occurs in children with genetic disorders, it may also occur in totally healthy children, despite rarely. In this article, we report a 16-year-old male patient who referred to our clinic with complaints of gait disturbance, frequent falls, and muscular weakness in lower extremity. The patient had no complaints during walking, but had difficulty in running and walking up and down the stairs...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to investigate the effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) on femoral head osteonecrosis and compare it with bone marrow injection and core decompression. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 30 healthy, adult, male New Zealand white rabbits (mean weight 2.25±0.15 kg; range 2.0 to 2.5 kg) were used in the study. To create experimental osteonecrosis in all rabbits, 40 mg/kg methylprednisolone acetate was applied intramuscularly. Rabbits were randomly allocated into three groups with 10 rabbits in each: drilling group, PRP group, and bone marrow group...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to compare the histological healing process and gene expression profile in tendon after the administration of human recombinant epidermal growth factor (hrEGF) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 24 mature New Zealand white rabbits (6-month-old; weight 2.5-3.0 kg) were used in the study. Patellar tendons of rabbits were tenotomized and then repaired. Rabbits were separated into three groups and repair areas were injected with 1 mL hrEGF in group 1 (n=9) and 1 mL PRP in group 2 (n=9)...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to evaluate the nitinol (X-Fuse®) implant in arthrodesis of the distal interphalangeal and the thumb joints with respect to bone fusion and clinical efficiency. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This prospective study included 24 consecutive patients (7 males, 17 females; mean age 56.8 years; range 27 to 79 years) with nitinol (X-Fuse®) implants in their 41 joints. All patients were followed-up clinically and radiographically with respect to fusion, complications and outcome at a minimum of 14 months postoperatively (mean 28±6 months)...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to evaluate the radiological and functional outcomes of locked compressive intramedullary nailing (IMN) cases in adult humerus shaft fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 24 patients (12 males, 12 females; mean age 42 years; range 23 to 55 years) with humerus fractures were treated with locked compressive IMN at the Orthopedics and Traumatology Clinic, Antalya Training and Research Hospital between December 2009 and March 2015. Fluoroscopy was used only to check fracture reduction before the reaming procedure...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to compare partial medial epicondylectomy (PMe) and distal medial epicondylectomy (DMe) techniques in terms of sensory and motor improvements, functional results and complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included a total of 59 cubital tunnel syndrome patients (37 males, 22 females; mean age 42.3 years; range 23 to 80 years). Of the patients, DMe was applied on 30 and PMe was applied on 29. Patients were evaluated with Wilson Krout scores, Semmes-Weinstein Monofilament (SWM) test, and grip and pinch strength measurements preoperatively and at postoperative third, sixth, and 12th months...

In this article, we report a case with spontaneous rupture of extensor pollicis longus tendon due to calcified extensor carpi radialis tendon group, which has not been published in the literature previously. Successful thumb extension was achieved in a 68-year-old male patient with the transfer of the extensor indicis proprius tendon at two months postoperatively. It appears that calcified extensor carpi radialis tendon group constitutes high risk for a possible attritional rupture of the extensor pollicis longus tendon...

A 67-year-old female patient admitted to our outpatient clinic suffering from pain in both thighs for one year without any history of trauma. Patient was receiving alendronate therapy for five years. Physical examination revealed pain increasing with weight-bearing in both thighs with full range of hip and knee movements. Radiographs showed an area of thickened cortex of middle femoral diaphysis in both femurs, but no fracture. Bone scan showed a single area of increased uptake of radioisotope. These images were compatible with stress fractures of both femurs...

Gluteal compartment syndrome is a rather rare syndrome often leading to severe sequelae, sepsis, renal failure, and even death due to delayed diagnosis. Establishing early diagnosis is essential to prevent complications associated with ischemia. In this article, we report a 56-year-old male patient who developed gluteal compartment syndrome after incisional hernia and nephrectomy surgery in lateral decubitus position. Gluteal muscle insufficiency developing after fasciotomy and Trendelenburg gait improved within two years...

Pigmented villonodular synovitis is a benign proliferative tumor of the synovium. It is very rare, and most cases occur in the knee joint. In this article, we report a case of localized pigmented villonodular synovitis in the knee joint of a 14-year-old boy. This condition is rare in the knees of the children. We preferred to remove the tumor with arthrotomy instead of arthroscopy for two reasons: (i) the patient was obese, (ii) we thought that recurrence risk was high after arthrotomy.

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to investigate the isokinetic characteristics of wrist strength in flexion, extension, supination, pronation, radial, and ulnar deviation in patients with moderate or severe carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirteen patients (23 hands) (2 males, 11 females; mean age 45 years; range 29 to 60 years) with moderate or severe CTS were compared to six healthy control subjects (12 hands) (2 males, 4 females; mean age 41 years; range 27 to 63 years) in this study, which was conducted between January 2016 and April 2016...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to assess the mortality and morbidity rates of patients with intertrochanteric femoral fractures who were performed proximal femoral nail-antirotation (PFNA) or cemented, bipolar hemiarthroplasty with calcar replacement. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 127 patients (42 males, 85 females; mean age 79.2 years; range 55 to 98 years) who were treated due to proximal femoral fracture between January 2008 and January 2011 were compared retrospectively in terms of intraoperative mortality, total mortality, and monthly distribution of mortality rates...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to evaluate the effects of radial bowing changes on fracture healing and functional results in adult forearm intramedullary nail applications and complications of forearm nails that have been discussed rarely in the literature. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-three patients -11 with isolated radius and 12 with both radius and ulna fractures- (17 males, 6 females; mean age 38.6 years; range 18 to 69 years) who were operated between September 2009 and August 2014 were included in the study...
