The coexistence of fractures of the capitellum and the radial head in the elbow joint is a rare entity. A 36-year-old man presented with complaints of pain, swelling, and limited range of motion in the right elbow after a fall. Radiography, computed tomography, and three-dimensional reconstruction of computed tomography images revealed displaced and comminuted fractures in the capitellum and the radial head. The fractures were treated with open reduction via a lateral approach and osteochondral fragments were fixed with Herbert screws. Clinical and radiographic results were excellent at the end of a three-year follow-up.

Pelvic digit was incidentally detected on plain pelvis radiography of a 44-year-old male patient who presented with right-sided hip pain. Three-dimensional reconstruction of computed tomography scans provided a more clear illustration of the anatomy and localization of this anomaly. To avoid unnecessary investigation methods and treatment, this entity should be kept in mind when an atypical bone structure is noted around the pelvis

OBJECTIVES: To compare the treatment results of patients with scaphoid pseudoarthrosis, who were treated by autogenous cancellous bone grafting followed by fixation with Herbert screws or Kirschner wires. METHODS: The study included 19 men (mean age 28 years, range 20 to 41 years) who were treated for scaphoid pseudoarthrosis and had a minimum follow-up of 12 months. Treatment was comprised of autogenous cancellous bone grafting and fixation with Herbert screws (n=10) or Kirschner wires (n=9). Fifteen right and four left hands were affected. The mean duration between the traumatic event and surgery was 20 months (range 3 to 72 month . . .s). Fractures were localized in the proximal pole (n=4, 21%), waist (n=13, 68%), and in the distal pole (n=2, 11%). The mean follow-up was 16 months for Herbert screws, and 21 months for Kirschner wires. RESULTS: None of the patients exhibited a loss in range of motion of 10 degrees or more. The mean time to union was six months (range 3 to 20 months) with Herbert screws and eight months (range 4 to 22 months) with Kirschner wires. All patients had union with Kirschner wires, whereas non-union occurred in three patients with Herbert screws, two of whom had had proximal pole fractures. Radiologic outcome was significantly different between the two groups ( Daha fazlası Daha az

Calcified aponeurotic fibroma is a rare benign fibrous tumor with well-characterized histopathologic features. It is usually seen in distal extremities of children and youngsters. A 23-year-old male patient underwent surgical excision of a free, painless soft tissue mass that developed in the palmar aspect of the left hand. Histopathologic examination showed fibroblastic proliferation areas and dense collagenous stroma surrounding calcifications and chondroid metaplasia. The diagnosis was made as calcified aponeurotic fibroma. No recurrences were detected within a year follow-up.
