    Objective. To present a unique case report of a Lisfranc fracture in a patient with a bipartite medial cuneiform and to evaluate the prevalence of the bipartite medial cuneiform in a retrospective review of 1000 magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies of the foot.

    The intermediate cuneiform bone lies between the medial and lateral cuneiforms and has a strong ligamentous attachment to the first metatarsal. Isolated dislocation of the intermediate cuneiform is regarded as a variation of a Lisfranc fracture-dislocation, and only eight cases have been...

    Orbital blowout fracture frequently occurs along the floor or medial aspect of the orbital wall, which are the two thinnest areas of the bony orbit. True trapdoor injury of the orbit is less common and is rare as an isolated medial wall injury, because the medial orbital wall has several bony...

    The zygomatic arch fracture is one of the most common facial bone fractures. Especially the isolated zygomatic arch fracture is usually repaired via Gillies' approach. But in the case of unstable zygomatic arch fracture, we need an additional step for stabilising the unstable zygomatic arch...

    Isolated supracondylar fractures of the humerus are relatively common in children, often occurring after a fall on an outstretched hand. The combination of a supracondylar fracture with a proximal humerus fracture and olecranon fracture is a very rare occurrence and its optimal management is...

    Bisphosphonates (BP) are a commonly prescribed class of drugs for the prevention of osteoporosis-related fractures. Paradoxically, however, they have recently been linked to atypical fractures in the shaft of the femur. Since many physicians including radiologists, are not aware of this entity,...
