    "Kissing Nail Technique" for the exchange of intramedullary implants in adjacent peri-implant fractures.
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2017 Dec 3;51(6):488-491. Epub 2017 Oct 3.
    Department of Surgery, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Campus Innenstadt, Munich, Germany. Electronic address:
    One third of the people aged 65 years and over fall every year, and 1-5% of these falls result in a fracture. For these people, history of fracture and surgery become a risk factor for recurrent falls. In osteoporotic patients, repeated fractures often require several osteosynthetic procedures within a short time frame. Read More

    Association between aspartic acid repeat polymorphism of the asporin gene and risk of knee osteoarthritis: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2017 Oct 7;51(5):409-415. Epub 2017 Sep 7.
    Department of Medical Genetics, Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences, Yazd, Iran; Mother and Newborn Health Research Center, Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences, Yazd, Iran.
    Objective: Studies have assessed the association between aspartic acid (D)-repeat polymorphism in the gene encoding Asporin (ASPN) and knee osteoarthritis (KOA) risk, but the results were inconclusive and contradictory. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between ASPN gene D-repeat polymorphism and KOA risk.

    Methods: Eligible studies were identified by searching several electronic databases for relevant reports published before September 2016. Read More

    Istanbul University, Istanbul Medical Faculty, Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Turkey.
    Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the histopathological features of primary extremity myxoid liposarcoma before and after neoadjuvant radiation therapy, and to evaluate the oncological outcomes of the patients.

    Methods: The study included 23 patients (16 men and 7 women with a mean age of 43 (24-69) years) with primary myxoid liposarcoma of the extremities, who were treated between January 1998 and December 2015.

    Isolated acetabular osteochondroma of the hip.
    Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2017 Oct 30;51(5):420-424. Epub 2017 Aug 30.
    Sancheti Institute of Orthopaedics, Pune, India.
    We present a case of isolated intra-acetabular osteochondroma in a 21 year-old male who presented with history of right hip pain for 5 years and difficulty in walking. Patient was managed with excision of intra-articular exostoses through surgical hip dislocation. Intra-articular hip osteochondromas can be a rare cause of hip pain in patients with unexplained etiology, and their diagnosis and management can be challenging. Read More
