Biomechanical comparison of humeral nails with different distal locking mechanisms: Insafelock nails versus conventional locking nails.
CONCLUSION: These results provide a biomechanical demonstration of the adequate stability of both nails after axial and rotational loading. The reliability of the newly developed InSafeLOCK humeral nail system, which does not require fluoroscopic control and an additional incision for distal locking, supports its use in the clinic.

Biomechanical effects of sequential resection of the posterior ligamentous complex on intradiscal pressure and resistance to compression forces.
CONCLUSION: The interspinous ligament/ligamentum flavum combination and supraspinous ligament are the largest contributor to resisting applied compression moments in the sheep thoracic and lumbar spine. As a result of the loss of resistance to compression forces, there will be a shift of a great proportion of this force onto the intervertebral disc. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level V.

Unusual localization and aggressive progression of large infantile fibrosarcoma.
Abstract Infantile fibrosarcoma is a very rare soft tissue tumor in infants and children most commonly located in extremities. It constitutes less then 1 percent of all childhood cancers. Prognosis and clinical course of it is relatively good compared to adult forms. Local recurrence is common but metastasis is infrequent. In this case report we present infantile fibrosarcoma with relapse and lung metastasis despite neoadjuvant chemotherapy, pelvic reconstruction surgery with wide surgical excision and adjuvant chemotherapy protocol. The patient was a 2-year-old girl at the time of diagnosis, and there was a huge ...

Clinical and radiological outcomes of conservative treatment for unilateral sagittal split fractures of C1 lateral mass.
CONCLUSION: Conservative treatment for USSF of C1 LM with TAL injury failed to achieve healing of the fracture, which resulted in lateral displacement of C1 LM. This caused coronal and sagittal malalignment of occipitocervical junction, resulting in unsatisfactory clinical outcomes. Our results suggest that early surgical stabilization should be considered in USSF of C1 LM with TAL injury, especially type I injury. However, conservative treatment may be sufficient for a USSF of the C1 LM with TAL intact. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level III, Therapeutic Study.

Can capsular plication compensate the lack of one suture anchor in an arthroscopic three suture anchor Bankart repair? A comparative study.
CONCLUSIONS: Arthroscopic repair of labral Bankart lesions with both techniques showed good functional outcomes and stability at the latest follow-up. Higher recurrence rate despite the shorter average follow-up of group B suggests that two anchor usage might not be sufficient for Bankart repair in terms of better stability and less recurrence risk.

Magnetic resonance imaging of patients with lateral epicondylitis: Relationship between pain and severity of imaging features in elbow joints.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the inter- and intra-observer reliabilities of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the diagnosis of lateral epicondylitis, to examine whether degree of common extensor tendon (CET) injury is related to other elbow abnormalities on MRI, and to investigate the correlation between elbow abnormalities on MRI and patients' symptoms. METHODS: Fifty-one patients (32 women and 19 men; mean age: 50 years (range, 22-63)) with a diagnosis of lateral epicondylitis were included in the study. The average duration of symptoms was 2.3 years. MRI scoring system was ...

Prevalence of elastofibroma dorsi on CT: Is it really an uncommon entity?
CONCLUSION: Here, we present a prevalence study with the largest population in the literature concerning ED. Our study shows that ED is not as uncommon as previously thought and should be especially suspected in females and older age groups. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level IV, Diagnostic Study.

Comparison of sartorius muscle-pedicle and circumflex iliac deep bone flap grafts in the treatment of early non-traumatic osteonecrosis of femoral head in young adults.
CONCLUSION: Both bone flap grafts appear to be effective methods for treatment of early osteonecrosis of femoral head (ARCOⅡ), and the SMBF is a relatively simple technique and easy for mastering, and it is a reliable method for clinical application.

Superficial radial nerve compression due to fibroma of the brachioradialis tendon sheath: A case report.
Abstract Fibroma of the tendon sheath (FTS) is a rare benign tumour that usually develops in the upper extremity, particularly in the fingers, hands and wrists. Herein, we present the case of a patient with an unusually localised FTS compressing the superficial branch of the radial nerve. A 62-year-old woman presented with a superficial radial nerve compression due to FTS of the brachioradialis. Histopathological diagnosis was confirmed as a FTS after marginal excision. The patient who had compression-related symptoms in the superficial branch of the radial nerve recovered completely at one month after surgery. On...

The effects of intra-articular injection of ibuprofen on knee joint cartilage and synovium in rats.
CONCLUSION: Our results show that intra-articular injection of ibuprofen can cause intra-articular hematoma. It also leads to transient inflammation of the synovia that is more severe in the early period, which gradually recovers.

Distribution and evaluation of bone and soft tissue tumors operated in a tertiary care center.
CONCLUSION: Musculoskeletal tumors are rare, but descriptive data in any region are important in order to reduce mortality and improve treatment. No significant difference was found between the data of our hospital regarding epidemiology of the musculoskeletal system tumors and those from the other regions around the world.

Reverse shoulder arthroplasty for fracture sequelae: How the initial fracture treatment influences the outcomes of joint replacement.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze and compare the results of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) in proximal humeral fracture sequelae (PHFS) in fractures initially treated conservatively versus those initially treated with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). METHODS: It is a retrospective study that includes all PHFS treated with a RSA from September 2006 to December 2013. Twenty-seven patients met the inclusion criteria. There were 9 patients (7 females and 2 males; mean age: 79.11 years) treated with RSA due to a fracture sequelae following conservative treatment and 18 pati...

Psychometrical properties of the Turkish translation of the new knee society scoring system.
This study was conducted on 66 knees of 43 pre-op patients who were scheduled for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and 50 knees of 26 knee arthroplasty patients at least 6 months postoperatively. KSS was translated and culturally adapted according to the guidelines of Guillemin and Beaton. Demographic and clinical characteristics of the patients were recorded. Patients completed WOMAC, KOOS and SF-36 surveys along with the Turkish version of the new KSS. After the initial evaluation, patients were asked to refill the new KSS 1 week later. Internal consistency and reliability were tested using Cronbach's alpha coefficient and ...

Middle term results of tantalum acetabular cups in total hip arthroplasty following pelvic irradiation.
CONCLUSION: In a clinical setting, tantalum cup seems to provide a good stability due to the integration of the trabecular metal to the underline cancellous bone. The reported results, in agreement with literature data, propose the use of tantalum cups in irradiated bone. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level IV, therapeutic study.
