Osteochondroma of the talar neck - A rare cause of callosity of the foot dorsum

Keser, S | Bayar, A


Osteochondroma is the most common benign bone tumor. It rarely affects rearfoot bones, and only a few cases of talar osteochondroma have been reported. We report a case of a solitary osteochondroma of the talus that presented as a painful callus on the anterior portion of the ankle that was refractory to dermatologic treatment.

What leads to unfavourable Cybex test results for quadriceps power after modified tension band osteosynthesis of patellar fractures?

Bayar, A | Sener, E | Keser, S | Meray, J | Simsek, A | Senkoylu, A


This study recruited 20 patients who had undergone modified tension band wiring for patellar fracture, with a mean follow up of 30 months. Subjects were grouped according to results of Cybex isokinetic testing at 60 degrees/s angular velocity. Subjects with 30% similar deficit formed group II. Plain radiography and HSS scoring were also performed. According to patient satisfaction, HSS scoring and Cybex testing, results were good in 80%, 90% and 55% of cases, respectively. Statistical analysis revealed that there were no significant differences between the two groups in terms of age, gender, duration of follow up, fracture type (two . . .-part or comminuted), dominancy, time interval between trauma and surgery, or duration of immobilisation. The number of patients with >1 mm articular incongruity postoperatively was significantly higher in group II, which also had significantly higher incidences of >1 cm thigh atrophy and pain and thus increased deficits. We suggest that articular incongruity should be limited strictly to 1 mm in surgery for patellar fractures. (C) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Pilonidal sinus disease can be treated with crystallized phenol using a simple three-step technique

Yuksel, Mehmet Eren


Introduction: Pilonidal sinus disease can be treated with various surgical techniques. However, invasive surgical techniques harbor the risk of wound infection and require a long postoperative wound healing period. The treatment of pilonidal sinus disease with crystallized phenol is minimally invasive with a short postoperative recovery period. This article explains how to treat pilonidal sinus disease with crystallized phenol using a quick and easy three-step technique. Methods: Between August 2014 and January 2016, 43 male and 7 female patients with pilonidal sinus disease were treated with crystallized phenol. Hair was gently rem . . .oved from the sinus openings with a mosquito clamp. Afterwards, the pilonidal sinus openings were gently filled with crystallized phenol. Results: The closure of pilonidal sinus openings without any leakage after a single application of crystallized phenol was accepted as healing. The treatment failed in two of the female patients, who had had prior pilonidal sinus surgery, and in four of the male patients, who had a recurrence after wound site infection. The overall cure rate was 88%. Conclusion: Treatment of pilonidal sinus disease with crystallized phenol using the three-step technique is simple, fast, and comfortable. Therefore, crystallized phenol should be preferentially considered in the treatment of pilonidal sinus disease Daha fazlası Daha az

Objectives: We aimed to present a case of Sheehan's syndrome associated with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia. Case Report: A 41-year-old-woman presented with hemorrhagic diathesis needed blood transfusions occasionally during her life-time. In the course of her second delivery, four units of whole blood transfusion were required to control profuse uterine bleeding and her hemodynamic status. During postpartum period, she was not able to lactate and her menstrual periods did not return. Her hormonal pro. le revealed gonadotropin, TSH and prolactin deficiencies. Conclusion: According to our knowledge, this is the first case report of hypop . . .ituitarism developed after delivery in association with Glanzmann's thromboasthenia-induced severe uterine hemorrhage Daha fazlası Daha az

Nitric oxide (NO) has been reported to function in both cytoprotective and cytotoxic tissue ischemia-reperfusion (I/R). In this study, we evaluated the effects of L-arginine, the substrate for NO, and N-G-nitro L-argine methyl ester (L-NAME), NO synthase (NOS) inhibitor on superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme activity, malondialdehyde (MDA), a marker of lipid peroxidation, nitrate levels, and histopathological structure in rat sciatic nerve 2 h after ischemia, followed by 3 h of reperfusion. Reperfusion resulted in a significant increase in lipid peroxidation level and a decrease in nitrate level of the sciatic nerve. The increased lev . . .el of lipid peroxidation was partly reduced by NOS inhibition. The decrease in sciatic nerve SOD level, observed in group subjected to I/R, was prevented by inhibition of NOS by L-NAME. These results were supported by histological findings that in the L-arginine-treated group, degenerations of both myelin sheath and axon were observed, while in the L-NAME-treated group, no pathological changes were detected. Our results suggested that excessive NO formation accelerates lipid peroxidation, as well as axonal degeneration on the early reperfusion period of the sciatic nerve Daha fazlası Daha az

Objective: This prospective study aimed to investigate the effects of the selective angiotensin receptor antagonist, telmisartan, on microalbuminuria after coronary artery bypass surgery in patients with diabetes mellitus. Methods: Patients were divided into two groups with block randomisation, using the sealed envelope technique: group T (telmisartan group) consisted of patients who received the angiotensin receptor blocking agent telmisartan 80 mg daily for at least six months in the pre-operative period; group N-T (non-telmisartan group) consisted of patients who received no telmisartan treatment. Clinical and demographic charact . . .eristics, operative and postoperative features, microalbuminuria and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels were compared. Results: Forty patients met the eligibility criteria for the study. The groups did not differ with regard to clinical and demographic characteristics, and operative and postoperative features. Microalbuminuria levels between the groups differed significantly in the pre-operative period, first hour postoperatively and fifth day postoperatively. C-reactive protein levels between the groups differed significantly on the fifth day postoperatively. Conclusion: Telmisartan was useful for decreasing systemic inflammation and levels of urinary albumin excretion in patients who had type 2 diabetes mellitus and had undergone coronary artery bypass surgery Daha fazlası Daha az

Is osteoporosis generalized or localized to central skele-ton in ankylosing spondylitis?

Article | 2007 | JCR-JOURNAL OF CLINICAL RHEUMATOLOGY13 ( 1 ) , pp.20 - 24

Background: Osteoporosis at the lumbar spine and at the femur is a well-established complication in ankylosing spondylitis (AS), but the exact mechanism and the distribution of osteoporosis are not known absolutely. Objective: To determine whether the osteoporosis is generalized or localized to central skeleton and to examine the relation between bone mineral density (BMD) and disease activity and radiologic progression in patients with AS. Methods: In this study, 26 patients with AS and 33 healthy controls matched for age and sex were recruited to the study. Hip and forearm BMD were measured by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEX . . .A). Laboratory and clinical disease activity parameters were documented, and anteroposterior sacroiliac radiographs were taken to determine the radiologic progression. Results: The urine deoxypyridinoline levels of the patients with AS were statistically significantly higher (P = 0.02) and the serum osteocalcin levels were significantly lower with respect to controls (P = 0.03). The femoral neck and femur BMD values and T scores were significantly lower in patients with AS compared with the controls (P = 0.019, 0.003, 0.01, and 0.01, respectively). The differences in BMD values and T scores of the distal 1/3 radius between 2 groups were not statistically significant. The relation between BMD and disease activity, and radiologic progression in patients with AS could not detected. Conclusion: Sparing of distal regions such as the as radius suggests that osteoporosis might be due to localized effects of inflammatory activity or immobility rather than a systemic effect. Both increased resorption and decreased formation might be involved in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. Radius BMD may not be appropriate to evaluate bone loss in patients with AS Daha fazlası Daha az

There is very little information about breast cancer characteristics, treatment choices, and survival among elderly patients. The purpose of this multicenter retrospective study was to examine the clinical, pathologic, and biologic characteristics of 620 breast cancer patients age 70 years or older. Between June 1991 and May 2012, 620 patients with breast cancer, recruited from 16 institutions, were enrolled in the retrospective study. Patients had smaller tumors at diagnosis; only 15% of patients had tumors larger than 5 cm. The number of patients who had no axillary lymph node involvement was 203 (32.7%). Ninety-three patients (15 . . ..0%) had metastatic disease at diagnosis. Patients were characterized by a higher fraction of pure lobular carcinomas (75.3%). The tumors of the elderly patients were also more frequently estrogen receptor (ER) positive (75.2%) and progesterone receptor (PR) positive (67.3%). The local and systemic therapies for breast cancer differed according to age. An association between age and overall survival has not been demonstrated in elderly patients with breast cancer. In conclusion, the biologic behavior of older patients with breast cancer differs from younger patients, and older patients receive different treatments Daha fazlası Daha az

Statement of problem. Many studies have investigated the heat generated during implant preparation, but data are needed to better predict heat generation during implant insertion. Purpose. The purpose of this study was to measure the heat generated during insertion of an implant at speeds of 30, 50, and 100 rpm, and with manual insertion. Material and methods. Sixty-four uniform fresh bovine femoral cortical bone specimens were used. After the cortical bone was drilled, 3 different implant insertion speeds and the manual insertion of the implant were evaluated for 2 different implant diameters. The temperature was measured with 2 Te . . .flon-insulated, type K thermocouples. Data were analyzed by 2way ANOVA, and the Tukey honestly significant difference test (Gc=.05). Results. The highest thermal change for 4.1-mm-diameter implants was found at a speed of 100 rpm (9.81 C 2.29 C), and the lowest thermal change was 3.69 C 0.85 C at a speed of 30 rpm. A statistically significant difference was found between 100 rpm and the other 3 insertion procedures. The highest thermal change for a 4.8-mm-diameter implant was found at a speed of 100 rpm (8.79 C 1.53 C), and the lowest thermal change was 4.48 C 0.85 C at a speed of 30 rpm. No statistical difference was observed with manual, 30 rpm, and 50 rpm; however, a statistically significant difference was found between 100 rpm and the other 3 insertion procedures. Conclusions. Manual implant insertion and at speeds of 30 rpm and 50 rpm generated lower heat compared with insertion at 100 rpm. (J Prosthet Dent 20:14;112:522-525 Daha fazlası Daha az

Karaca, Leyla | Yuceler, Zeynep | Kantarci, Mecit | Cakir, Murteza | Sade, Recep | Calikoglu, Cagatay | Ogul, Hayri

Article | 2016 | BRITISH JOURNAL OF RADIOLOGY89 ( 1057 ) , pp.861 - 868

Objective: To prospectively evaluate the ability of dual-energy CT (DECT), compared with MRI, to identify vertebral compression fractures in acute trauma patients. Methods: This institutional review board-approved study included 23 consecutive patients with 32 vertebral fractures who underwent both DECT and MRI of the spine between February 2014 and September 2014. A total of 209 vertebrae were evaluated for the presence of abnormal bone marrow attenuation on DECT and signal on MRI by five experienced radiologists. The specificity, sensitivity, predictive values and intraobserver and interobserver agreements were calculated. Results . . .: MRI revealed a total of 47 vertebrae (22.4% of all vertebrae) and DECT revealed 44 vertebrae (21.0% of all vertebrae) with oedema. Using MRI as the reference standard, DECT had sensitivity, specificity, positive-predictive value, negative-predictive value and accuracy of 89.3, 98.7, 95.4, 96.9 and 96.6%, respectively. With respect to establishing the presence of oedema, the interobserver agreement was almost perfect (k=0.82), and the intraobserver agreement was substantial (k=0.80). Conclusion: Compared with MRI, DECT can provide an accurate demonstration of acute vertebral fractures and can be used as an alternative imaging modality for the assessment of vertebral fractures in patients with contraindications for MRI. Advances in knowledge: Distinguishing of acute and chronic vertebral compression fracture is important for treatment choices. DECT is very fast compared with MRI and is an alternative imaging modality for the assessment of vertebral fractures in patients with contraindications for MRI Daha fazlası Daha az
