Effectiveness of posterior structures in the development of proximal junctional kyphosis following posterior instrumentation: A biomechanical study in a sheep spine model.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Istanbul University, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine, Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Istanbul, Turkey.

Introduction: Proximal junctional kyphosis - PJK has been defined by a 10 or greater increase in kyphosis at the proximal junction as measured by the Cobb angle from the caudal endplate of the uppermost instrumented vertebrae (UIV) to the cephalad endplate of the vertebrae 1 segments cranial to the UIV. In this biomechanical study, it is aimed to evaluate effects of interspinosus ligament complex distruption and facet joint degeneration on PJK development.

Materials And Methods: Posterior instrumentation applied between T2 - T7 vertebrae using pedicle screws to randomly selected 21 sheeps, divided into 3 groups. Read More

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Acıbadem University, School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

The deformed and enlarged femoral head secondary to hip diseases such as Legg Calve Perthes and Developmental Dysplasia usually causes impingement between the aspherical head and the acetabulum. To restore and reduce the size of enlarged femoral head, a femoral head reduction technique has been described previously. The goal is to obtain a spherical femoral head and to cover the gliding surface with best available cartilage. Read More

Long term results after double and single bundle ACL reconstruction: Is there any difference? A meta - Analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Third Hospital of Hebei Medical University, Shijiazhuang, 050051, Hebei, China. Electronic address:

Objective: The double-bundle (DB) techniques are considered to yield better stability of the knee compared with single-bundle (SB) for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. However, most studies followed up patients in short to middle-term within 5 years, and the longer-term efficacy of SB and DB ACL reconstruction is still beyond consensus. The purpose of this meta-analysis is to compare the longer-term efficacy between double-bundle (DB) and single-bundle (SB) techniques. Read More

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2018 Oct 3. Epub 2018 Oct 3.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Tri-Service General Hospital, National Defense Medical Center, Taipei, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH), also known as Masson's tumor or vegetant intravascular hemangioendothelioma, is a reactive condition representing an exuberant organization and recanalization of a thrombus. It can occur in normal blood vessels or in vascular malformations, perhaps in response to blood vessel injury or thrombosis. In this report, we present the diagnostic and therapeutic courses of a 55 year-old woman and an 18 year-old man, who had a progressive protruding hand mass following a hand contusion. Read More

Quantitative comparison of a laterally misplaced pedicle screw with a re-directed screw. How much pull-out strength is lost?

Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc 2018 Nov 3;52(6):459-463. Epub 2018 Sep 3.

Istanbul Technical University, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department, Istanbul, Turkey.

Objective: Redirecting of a laterally misplaced pedicle screw into the accurate position decreases the pull-out strength due to the reinsertion, lateral wall cortical perforation and widening of the pedicle hole. Thus, this biomechanical study was performed to quantitatively analyze the pullout strength of a redirected laterally misplaced pedicle screw into the accurate position.

Methods: Thirty pedicules of 15 bovine vertebrae were separated to 3 groups, according to the screw placement method: 1) standard flawless trajectory; 2) trajectory with lateral pedicle wall perforation; 3) trajectory with lateral wall perforation redirected to the standard trajectory. Read More
