I am considering as my primary treatment plan doing bilateral sinus lifts with bone grafts and installing 3 implants on each side or All on 4.
CONCLUSION: Patients with GSTT1 mismatch can develop a specific T-cell response, but the potential role of this response in the pathogenesis of plasma cell-rich rejection is unknown. PMID: 29026463 [PubMed]

NuVasive Inc. (NSDQ:NUVA) said today the it won expanded 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its TLX implant used in spinal fusion surgery. San Diego-based NuVasive said the new clearance covers an new, expandable 20° cage and new indications for use covering allogeneic bone grafts and more spine levels. “With the additional clearance for our latest TLX system, we now provide the leading tools for [transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion] procedures with our MAS TLIF solution, validating our commitment to improving spine solutions,” strategy, technology &corporate development EVP Matt Link said in pre...
In conclusion, following the introduction of 3D-CT to the field of thoracic surgery, various 3D-CT images and their application to preoperative simulations have been introduced in lung transplantation. In the near future, this technique will become more prevalent, and frequent use by thoracic surgeons will be seen worldwide in daily practice.

Abstract The number of nonrenal solid‐organ transplants increased substantially in the last few decades. Many of these patients develop renal failure and receive kidney transplantation. The aim of this study was to evaluate patient and kidney allograft survival in primary, repeat, and kidney‐after‐nonrenal organ transplantation using national data reported to United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) from January 2000 through December 2014. Survival time for each patient was stratified into the following: Group A (comparison group)—recipients of primary kidney transplant (178 947 patients), Group B—rec...

A study published online in the journal Arthroscopy compares differences in short-term outcomes for patients who undergo anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using a graft with preserved insertions and those treated with a free hamstring graft.
Abstract BackgroundThe development of donor‐specific antibodies (DSA) to human leukocyte antigens (HLA) has been associated with acute rejection and allograft failure after heart transplantation. Not all DSA, however, can fix complement. MethodsTo determine the association between complement‐fixing DSA and heart transplant outcomes, we retrospectively analyzed results obtained using the C1q solid‐phase assay that specifically detects complement‐fixing DSA in parallel with the standard IgG assay in 121 adult heart transplant recipients. ResultsThe 52 recipients who developed post‐transplant DSA had a higher incide...
