Background: The fibula is known not to involve in transmission of weight but known simply as an ankle stabilizer. However, its main function in stabilizing the ankle remains obscure. Since the fibula has an impact on torsion and rotation of the ankle, its effect on lateral ankle instability should be investigated.


Does bilateral total knee arthroplasty affect gait in women? Comparison of gait analyses before and after total knee arthroplasty compared with normal knees
Solak, AS; Kentel, B; Ates, Y (Elsevier BV, 2005-09-01)
We performed gait analysis of 24 patients with bilateral knee osteoarthritis (OA) before, 1 year, and 2 years after bilateral total knee arthroplasty and compared these results to 12 normal controls. Cadence was significantly decreased in OA patients when compared with controls. Step and stride lengths were significantly different preoperatively (shorter) and postoperatively (P < .05), but postoperative results showed no significant difference when compared with normal controls ( P < .05). Step and stride t...
Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha Antagonist Administration Recovers Skeletal Muscle Dysfunction in Ovariectomized Rats
Dagdeviren, Sezin; KANDİLCİ, HİLMİ BURAK; Uysal, Berna; ZEYBEK, NACİYE DİLARA; KORKUSUZ, PETEK; Gumusel, Bulent; Korkusuz, Feza (Wiley, 2011-02-01)
Skeletal muscles deteriorate after ovariectomy. Molecular pathway of this deterioration has not been defined. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha activation is assumed to trigger muscle atrophy and administration of its antagonist is hypothesized to recover this atrophy in rats. Slow-twitch soleus and fast-twitch extensor digitorum longus muscle functions were investigated in intact, ovariectomized (OVX), and OVX plus 10 mu g/g/week TNF-alpha antagonist administered female rats. Maximum isometric twitch and t...
Vibration measurements predict the mechanical properties of human tibia
Bediz, Bekir; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Korkusuz, Feza (Elsevier BV, 2010-05-01)
Background: Vibration analysis is a promising technique in diagnosing metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis and monitoring fracture healing. The aim of this study is to observe the structural dynamic property changes of the tibia extracted from the vibration analysis data.
Assessment of mineral density and atomic content of fracture callus by quantitative computerized tomography
Korkusuz, Feza; Akın, Serhat; Akkuş, Ozan; KORKUSUZ, PETEK (Elsevier BV, 2000-01-01)
The mineral density and atomic numbers of elements in the periosteal callus and the cortex area of a healing fracture were measured by quantitative computerized tomography (QCT) to obtain accurate information on the mineralization process in rabbit tibia. The mineral density of the periosteal callus was highest on day 15 and decreased gradually throughout the experiment. This was initially detected by QCT, but not with conventional radiography. An apparent decrease in cortical bone density on days 28 and 42...
Etiology of senile osteoporosis - A hypothesis
Atik, O. Sahap; Uslu, M. Murad; Eksioglu, Fatih; Satana, Tolgay (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2006-02-01)
Osteoporosis is a major health problem characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing patients to an increased risk of fracture. It may cause morbidity and mortality in elderly men and women. The etiologic factors that lead to senile osteoporosis still are unclear.
