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.


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.
Surgical repair of cartilage defects of the patella
Atik, OS; Korkusuz, Feza (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2001-08-01)
The structure and biomechanical forces on the patellar joint challenges researchers to define an ideal method for resurfacing the patellar cartilage. The articular surface of the patella presents variability between individuals, and has various minor articulations that bear partial or total compressive, shear, and combined forces during movement. Surgical techniques for the repair of patellar cartilage defects have evolved from cumulative advances in basic science and technology. Such surgeries include the ...
Functional evaluation of intraarticular severely comminuted fractures of the calcaneus with gait analysis
BOZKURT, Murat; Kentel, B. Behzat; Yavuzer, Gunes; Öçgüder, Ali; Heycan, Cengiz; Tönük, Ergin (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
Twenty-one patients (23 feet) treated nonsurgically for severely comminuted intraarticular fractures of the calcaneus were evaluated prospectively with a clinical scoring scale and computerized gait analysis. All patients had Sanders type III and type IV fractures. The treatment protocol consisted of no closed reduction, immobilization in removable splint, physiotherapy after edema subsided, and weightbearing after 8 weeks. All patients had a minimum follow-up of 2 years (mean, 38 months). Clinical results ...
Predicting bone remodeling around tissue- and bone-level dental implants used in reduced bone width
Eser, Atilim; Tönük, Ergin; Akça, Kıvanç; Dard, Michel M.; Cehreli, Murat Cavit (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-03)
The objective of this study was to predict time-dependent bone remodeling around tissue- and bone-level dental implants used in patients with reduced bone width. The remodeling of bone around titanium tissue-level, and titanium and titanium-zirconium alloy bone-level implants was studied under 100 N oblique load for one month by implementing the Stanford theory into three-dimensional finite element models. Maximum principal stress, minimum principal stress, and strain energy density in pen-implant bone and ...
Psychological distress and physical disability in patients sustaining severe injuries in road traffic crashes: Results from a one-year cohort study from three European countries
PAPADAKAKİ, Maria; FERRARO, Ottavia Eleonora; ORSİ, Chiara; OTTE, Dietmar; TZAMALOUKA, Georgia; Von-der-Geest, Marco; Lajunen, Timo; Özkan, Türker; MORANDİ, Anna; SARRİS, Markos; PİERRAKOS, George; CHLİAOUTAKİS, Joannes (Elsevier BV, 2017-02-01)
The current study aimed to follow-up a group of road crash survivors for one year and assesses the impact of injury on their psychological and physical condition. All crash survivors that were admitted to the intensive or sub-intensive care units of selected hospitals in Greece, Germany and Italy over one year period (2013-2014), were invited to participate in the study and were interviewed at three different time-points as follows: (a) at one month (baseline data), (b) at six months, and (c) at twelve mont...
