Condylar response to functional therapy with Twin-Block as shown by cone-beam computed tomography.

Condylar response to functional therapy with Twin-Block as shown by cone-beam computed tomography. Angle Orthod. 2014 Apr 9; Authors: Yildirim E, Karacay S, Erkan M Abstract Objective: To evaluate the condylar changes through cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images in patients treated with Twin-Block functional appliance. Materials and Methods: In this retrospective study, CBCT images of 30 patients who were treated with the Twin-Block appliance were used. Mandible was segmented and pretreatment and posttreatment (T0 and T1) condylar volume was compared. The angle between sella-nasion-Point A (SNA), angle between sella-nasion-Point B (SNB), angle between Point A-nasion-Point B (ANB), midfacial length (Co-A), mandibular length (Co-Gn), and the distances from right condylion to left condylion (CoR-CoL) were also measured on three-dimensional images. Differences were analyzed with Wilcoxon signed rank tests, and Mann-Whitney U-tests were used to compare the scores of male and female participants. Significance was set at P

Authors: Wang H, Liu Z, Shen Z, Fang L, Zhang S Abstract OBJECTIVES: To identify the predictors of coronary involvement, and to determine the impact of coronary involvement on long-term outcomes in patients with Takayasu's arteritis (TAK). METHODS: This retrospective cohort study of TAK patients with coronary evaluation by angiography or computed tomography angiography was conducted in a tertiary center between 1990 and 2018. Risk factors for coronary involvement and predictors of overall survival, cardiovascular event-free survival, and relapse-free survival were investigated. RESULTS: The median follow-up...

Conclusions: Clinical features of Korean patients with PPFE were similar to those reported previously; however, lower lobe involvement was more frequent. During follow-up, one-fourth of the patients experienced pneumothorax and one-fifth died from pneumonia. PMID: 32088939 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
