Pediatric Acute Stroke Protocol Activation in a Children's Hospital Emergency Department Brief Reports

Conclusions— Of pediatric brain attacks, 24% were stroke, 2% were transient ischemic attack, and 14% were other neurological emergencies. Together, 40% had a stroke or other neurological emergency, underscoring the need for prompt evaluation and management of children with brain attacks.

This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of internal symmetry (the number and morphology of root canals) in the mandibular incisors using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). A total of 302 CBCT scans involving 1,208 mandibular incisors were evaluated using the Vertucci's classification regarding the number and configuration of root canals. The central mandibular incisors exhibited two root canals in 22.6% of patients and lateral incisors in 24.3% of patients. Most teeth (76.4%) had a type I configuration (a single root canal, 1-1), 21.7% had type II (2-1), 1.1% had type V (1-2), and 0.8% had type IV (2-2). Teeth with ...

Authors: Kohashi R, Shinozaki T, Sekine N, Watanabe K, Takanezawa D, Nishihara C, Ozasa K, Ikeda M, Noma N, Okada-Ogawa A, Imamura Y Abstract Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is classified into idiopathic orofacial pain conditions. Although central and peripheral neuropathic mechanisms are believed to be involved, the etiology remains to be fully elucidated. The present study examined temporal brain responses to an ongoing hot stimulus to investigate the pain modulating system in patients with BMS. The thermal stimulation sequence comprised baseline (32°C, 40 s) to warm (40°C, 32 s) to baseline (32°C, 40 s)...

This report presents a case where sinus floor elevation was performed using tricalcium phosphate (TCP) plates supported by implant bodies, and only the blood clot was present around the implant bodies. Cone-beam computed tomography images, taken one year after the lateral approach, revealed the presence of a TCP-like radio-opacity, which almost disappeared after two years. About seven years after the surgery, the patient's superstructure and occlusion were stable. Furthermore, the grafted TCP was completely absorbed, and the implant body appeared to be in good condition, with no signs of bone resorption around the implant....

Authors: Matsumura E, Nohara K, Tanaka N, Fujii N, Sakai T Abstract Polypharmacy in elderly persons living at home or in a nursing home is an issue. In the field of dentistry, strategies to reduce polypharmacy must be promoted; however, there is insufficient basic data on medications received by elderly persons with dysphagia living at home or in a nursing home. The subjects were 106 elderly persons with dysphagia living at home or in a nursing home. Based on their medical records, the presence of disease and number/type of drugs being administered were investigated. Stroke, dementia, and hypertension were common. ...

We report a case of capillary hemangioma of lobular subtype in the calvarium of a 28-year-old pregnant woman which presented as a sore and rapidly growing bulge over the left fronto-parietal region. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and skull showed an expansive tumor with brain displacement, skull erosion, and scalp infiltration. The tumor was surgically removed, and histopathological examination showed a capillary hemangioma of lobular subtype. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a lobular capillary hemangioma in the calvarium, and it represents a rarity to be considered among the many other d...

ConclusionNot every diffuse restriction observed on MRI indicates an ischemic stroke. Although radiologic images of the splenium may suggest acute ischemic infarction, the actual cause may be another pathology. Therefore, the symptoms and aetiologies of patients with splenium lesions should be considered and investigated from a wide range of perspectives.
