Fractured implant: Remove or bury?
The implant in question is fractured, causing the abutment and crown to be dislodged. You can see the distal aspect of the occlusal platform bulges out and this implant will no longer support an abutment or screw.
CONCLUSION: Dutch incidence and cost estimates based on claims were consistent with previous estimates. Prevalence estimates were somewhat higher. Drug and hospital costs were highest shortly after the diagnosis. Healthcare consumption related to comorbidities was in-line with the previously reported comorbidity estimates.

CONCLUSION: This study provides the Chinese-specific health utility data for advanced NSCLC using the EQ-5D. PMID: 29775084 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: EN was at least effective as ranitidine plus EN as SUP. PMID: 29775083 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Further discussions about the adequacy of COS for acute pediatric pain, as well as interventions to increase the uptake of COS may be warranted. PMID: 29775075 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Lee DK, In J Abstract Length of time is a variable often encountered during data analysis. Survival analysis provides simple, intuitive results concerning time-to-event for events of interest, which are not confined to death. This review introduces methods of analyzing time-to-event. The Kaplan-Meier survival analysis, log-rank test, and Cox proportional hazards regression modeling method are described with examples of hypothetical data.

Conclusions: This tool can be used to generate analysis report and charts using the central database. This information is only provided after prior approval has been received from the patient for medical research purposes. PMID: 29770248 [PubMed]
Conclusions: The evidences suggest that qSOFA is a better diagnostic criteria than SIRS. The low sensitivity of qSOFA can be improved by carefully selecting the threshold to translate the predicted probabilities into labels. These findings can guide healthcare providers in selecting risk-stratification measures for patients presenting to an ED with sepsis. PMID: 29770247 [PubMed]
Conclusions: The DSM app was developed based on behavioral change theory through IMB models. It was designed to be evidence-based, user-centered, and effective. It remains necessary to fully evaluate the effect of the DSM app on the DSM behavior changes of diabetes patients. PMID: 29770246 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Increased sensor durability and a higher percentage of analyzed steps indicates that IngVaL is an improvement over the prototype system. The combined strategy of amplitude and step frequency was confirmed as the most accurate method. PMID: 29770245 [PubMed]
Conclusions: The adaptive neuro-fuzzy algorithm produces a more accurate model as it applies both the capabilities of a neural network architecture and experts' knowledge as a hybrid algorithm. It identifies nonlinear components, yielding remarkable results for prediction the length of stay, which is a useful calculation output to support ICU management, enabling higher quality of administration and cost reduction.
