    Which Unicondylar Prosthesis Has Better Mid-Term Results: Fixed or Mobile?
    (2016-04-01T00:00:00Z) Bulbul, Ahmet Murat; KUYUCU, ERSİN; Kara, Adnan; KÜÇÜKDURMAZ, FATİH; Erdil, Mehmet; KÜÇÜKDURMAZ, FATİH
    Objective: Osteoarthritis, which is one of the most common causes of pain and motion loss, is an important medical disease that particularly affects elderly people. Unicondylar knee arthroplasty treatment is still a challenge for obese and/or ACL deficient patients. In addition, surgeons face a challenge of deciding whether to perform either fixed or mobile insert design prosthesis. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of fixed or mobile insert design prosthesis on the mid-term results of patients that we followed up for 8 years or more.

    Analysis of Medical Responses in Mass Gatherings: The Commemoration Ceremonies for the 100(th) Anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli

    IntroductionMass crowds outside the routine population create a burden of disease on Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The need for EMS in various mass-crowd events may vary. It is especially important to determine the EMS requirement that emerges during the historic commemoration ceremonies in Canakkale (Turkey).Hypothesis/ProblemThis study aims to determine the unique challenges in the planning of EMS responses provided for people from various countries at the commemoration ceremony for a 100-year-old war and to identify the medical provision of those services.MethodsThis descriptive study examined the patient applications in the Canakkale EMS at the commemoration ceremonies for the 100(th) anniversary of Gallipoli Wars (Canakkale Amphibious Wars - Turkey) on April 24-25, 2015.ResultsA total of 221 cases were handled by 112 EMS in the ceremony area. Of those, 87.3% of the cases applied to a mobile operating room (MOR) stationed in the ceremony area while 12.7% of them applied directly to the health care team in a large area in the ceremony area. Overall, 13.1% of the cases were transferred to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Patient presentation rate (PPR) of the patients who were treated during the two days was 4.42, and transfer to hospital rate (TTHR) of the cases transferred to the hospital was calculated to be 0.58.ConclusionFurther studies may create models in regard to the estimations on mass and needs based on the data of previous organizations.

    Comparison of Cytotoxic Effects of Intra-Articular Use of Tranexamic Acid versus Epinephrine on Rat Cartilage
    (2018-02-01T00:00:00Z) Sukur, Erhan; KÜÇÜKDURMAZ, FATİH; KÜÇÜKDURMAZ, FATİH
    Background: Adequate visualization is known to be essential to perform arthroscopic procedures effectively and efficiently. We hypothesized that tranexamic acid may be considered as an alternative agent to reduce intra-articular bleeding during arthroscopic procedures, after comparing its potential chondrotoxicity with that of epinephrine.

    A New Anchor Augmentation Technique With a Cancellous Screw in Osteoporotic Rotator Cuff Repair: An In Vitro Biomechanical Study on Sheep Humerus Specimens
    Purpose: The aim of this study was to test a simple technique to augment the pullout resistance of an anchor in an over-drilled sheep humerus model. Methods: Sixty-four paired sheep humeri were harvested from 32 male sheep aged 18 months. Specimens were divided into an augmented group and non-augmented group. FASTIN RC 5-mm titanium screw anchors (DePuy Mitek, Raynham, MA) double loaded with suture material (braided polyester, nonabsorbable USP No. 2) were used in both groups. Osteoporosis was simulated by over-drilling with a 4.5-mm drill. Augmentation was performed by fixing 1 of the sutures 1.5 cm inferior to the anchor insertion site with a washer screw. This was followed by a pull-to-failure test at 50 mm/min. The ultimate load (the highest value of strength before anchor pullout) was recorded. A paired t test was used to compare the biomechanical properties of the augmented and non-augmented groups. Results: In all specimens the failure mode was pullout of the anchor. The ultimate failure loads were statistically significantly higher in the augmented group (P < .0001). The mean pullout strength was 121.1 +/- 10.17 N in the non-augmented group and 176.1 +/- 10.34 N in the augmented group. Conclusions: The described augmentation technique, which is achieved by inferior-lateral fixation of 1 of the sutures of the double-loaded anchor to a fully threaded 6.5-mm cancellous screw with a washer, significantly increases the ultimate failure loads in the over-drilled sheep humerus model. Clinical Relevance: Our technique is simple, safe, and inexpensive. It can be easily used in all osteoporotic patients and will contribute to the reduction of anchor failure. This technique might be difficult to apply arthroscopically. Cannulated smaller screws would probably be more practical for arthroscopic use. Further clinical studies are needed.

    A meta-analysis comparing the direct anterior with other approaches in primary total hip arthroplasty
    (2019-10-01T00:00:00Z) KÜÇÜKDURMAZ, FATİH; Sukeik, Mohamed; Paruizi, Javad; KÜÇÜKDURMAZ, FATİH
    Background: Proponents of the direct anterior approach (DAA) for THAs suggest earlier recovery with no increased complications whereas opponents suggest higher complication rates.
