The treatment timing of labial inversely impacted maxillary central incisors: A prospective study.

The treatment timing of labial inversely impacted maxillary central incisors: A prospective study. Angle Orthod. 2016 Mar 3; Authors: Sun H, Hu R, Ren M, Lin Y, Wang X, Sun C, Wang Y Abstract OBJECTIVE:   To determine the timing of treatment for the labial inversely impacted maxillary central incisors. METHODS:   Twenty-eight patients (mean age, 8.2 years) with labial inversely impacted maxillary central incisors were divided into early-treated and later-treated groups according to their dental age. All of the patients were treated with a combination of surgery and orthodontic traction using the Guide rod appliance. Cone-beam computed tomography images were taken immediately after treatment for assessing the root morphology, root length, and alveolar bone loss. Sagittal slices were evaluated at the widest labial-lingual width of the tooth in the axial view. All variables were evaluated by Simplant 13.0 software (Materialise Dental NV, Leuven, Belgium). RESULTS:   The rank sum test indicated that the root length of two groups showed a statistically significant difference between the impacted and homonym tooth, with a shorter length in the impacted tooth (P

We report the case of a 72-year-old woman with limited systemic sclerosis, who was initially diagnosed with systemic sclerosis-related pulmonary arterial hypertension. However, after introduction of sildenafil and bosentan, the patient developed acute pulmonary oedema, and findings from complementary exams were suggestive of PVOD.

This study is focused on multiscale characterization and constitutive parameters identification of selectively laser sintered PA12 specimens. The process parameters and change in crystallinity due to 3D printing were identified via differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Tension, compression, shear, flexural and fracture tests performed on samples fabricated, both in 0° and 90° directions reveal that the tensile toughness of samples printed in 0° orientation, outperform samples printed in 90° orientation by an average of 24%. Cryogenically fractured samples were analyzed via SEM and micro-computed tomograp...

A 25-year-old male with end-stage kidney disease from obstructive uropathy and neurogenic bladder presented to the emergency room with generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Two weeks before this presentation, the patient was started on hemodialysis via nontunneled precurved hemodialysis catheter, which was inserted into the right internal jugular vein. A cranial computed tomography obtained for the seizures revealed subcutaneous emphysema of the scalp and air bubbles within the dural venous sinuses (Figure  1a).
