The dorsal tubercle of the radius, once called Lister's tubercle, is used as a landmark in wrist arthroscopy, wrist joint injections, and similar surgical and clinical procedures. However, there is no useful information in the reference anatomy books and literature. The aim of this study was to identify the anatomical localization of Lister's tubercle on the dorsum of radius in relation to the radial styloid process and the ulnar notch of radius and to demonstrate the clinical and surgical importance of these relationships...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: In this retrospective study we analysed the major indications for knee arthroscopy and the diagnoses made using it in children and adolescents who had sustained knee joint injuries. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 731 knee joint artroscopies were performed and retrospectively evaluated in patients under 19 years of age. The group included patients with knee joint injuries treated at our department in the 2000-2010 period. There were 413 boys (58%) and 300 girls (42%) with an average age of 14 years and 2 months...

The diagnostic and treatment algorithm of the comminuted intraarticular fractures of the long tubular bones was worked out. It included laser Doppler flowmetry, thermography, artroscopy, osteoreplacing and external fixation methods. Bench tests of the innovated external fixation apparate proved the possibility of early postoperative rehabilitation of patients.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To observe the motor and sensorial block characteristics with different dosage of levobupivacaine during spinal block for the patients undergoing day-case knee arthroscopy. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Eighty, 80 ASA physical status I-II patients, undergoing day-case knee arthroscopy received 0.5% levobupivacaine; 7.5 mg in Group I, 10 mg in Group II, 12.5 mg in Group III and 15 mg in Group IV for spinal anesthesia. Maximum sensorial and motor block levels, sensorial and motor block durations, time to required readiness to surgery after block and side effects were recorded...

Everyday practice has convinced us that the diagnosis of the affection and mainly of the injury of the knee joint is far from being so simple as it may seem at first glance and as it is still considered by many orthopaedic surgeons and traumatologists. The determination of proper diagnosis must be based first of all on anamnestic data, thorough clinical and other supporting examinations. It has been found out that both the sensitivity and specificiy of individual tests are lower than it has been so far assumed...

Many authors consider that the contours and dimensions of TMJ continue to be reshaped and remodeled even after the period of growth and development is complete, in response to changing mechanical stresses under influence of aging, abrasion and the loss of the teeth. Therefore, the aim of this study was to find out if aging and the loss of teeth make any influence on TMJ. The sample consisted of 80 dry skulls and their mandibles. The following parameters were measured: 1A (AB) the distance from the lateral ending of petrotympanic fissure to the intersection of petrotympanic and petrosquamosus fissure, 1B (BC) the distances from the intersection of petrotympanic and petrosquamosus fissure to the most prominent part of the articular eminence, 1C (AC) the distance from the lateral ending of petrotympanic fissure to the most prominent part of articular eminence and 2 (h) the depth of the mandibular fossa...
