Authors: Wen SC, Fu JH, Wang HL Abstract The aim of this study was to compare the amount of radiographic horizontal buccal bone thickness (BBT) at implant dehiscence defects grafted with the sandwich bone augmentation (SBA) and modified sandwich bone augmentation (MSBA) techniques. Compared to the SBA technique, the MSBA approach involved an additional outer layer of deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) to maintain the space for bone regeneration for longer periods. A total of 19 patients, each with a buccal implant dehiscence defect, were recruited. The control group was treated with SBA technique (n = 10), wh...

Authors: Aimetti M, Ferrarotti F, Gamba MN, Giraudi M, Romano F Abstract The present case series aimed to explore the potential clinical benefits of the application of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) in the regenerative treatment of deep intrabony defects. A total of 11 isolated intrabony defects in 11 chronic periodontitis patients were accessed with a minimally invasive flap and filled with DPSCs loaded on a collagen sponge. A tooth requiring extraction for impaction or malpositioning was used as an autologous source for DPSCs. An average clinical attachment level gain of 4.7 ± 1.5 mm associated with a resi...

CONCLUSIONS: Horizontal interproximal dimensions around zirconia implants showed very weak influence on the papilla height. A high or a low contact point position of the crowns did not affect the papilla deficit. Conflict of Interest and sources of funding: All authors reported no conflict of interest. There were no sources of funding for the research. PMID: 29234751 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to compare clinical and radiographic bone level assessments to intra-surgical bone level registration around implants with peri-implantitis and to identify the clinical variables rendering peri-implant bone level assessment accuracy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study sample included 50 implants with peri-implantitis in 23 patients. Registration methods included probing of the vertical distance between the implant/abutment interface and the bottom of the pocket (= VPD), intraoral radiography, bone sounding without flap elevation and intra-surgically assessed interprox...

CONCLUSIONS: Within the limitations of this study, the present data seem to confirm the hypothesis that the clinical outcome of implants inserted in sinuses grafted with ABB vs implants inserted in sinuses grafted with mixed 50% ABB and 50% autologous bone are comparable. Conflict-of-interest statement: This study was not supported by any company. All the authors declare no conflict of interest. PMID: 29234749 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Both techniques achieved excellent results and no differences were observed between prostheses supported by one to two 5 or 6 mm long implants vs 10 mm long in posterior atrophic maxillae up to 3 years after loading; therefore it is up to clinicians to decide which procedure to use, although longer follow-ups with larger patient populations are needed to better understand if one of these procedures could be more effective in the long-term. Conflict of interest statement: this study was partially supported by Zimmer Biomet. However, data property belonged to the authors, and by no means did the manufacturer int...

Although FDA doesn't have to follow the recommendation of its advisory committees, a negative panel vote is never a good sign for a company hoping to bring a new device to the market. Intrinsic Therapeutic learned the hard way Tuesday that it's usually best if clinical trials follow the protocol that was initially communicated to the agency. Changes to the device trial, along with other concerns FDA staff raised, caused an advisory panel to vote against recommending approval for Intrinsic's Barricaid prosthesis, according to a MedPage Today report. The device is designed for partial annulus replacement in patients wit...

Authors: An SY, Lee KM, Lee JS Abstract OBJECTIVES: To investigate dentists' perceptions and attitudes regarding radiation safety in dental practices in Korea. METHODS: Two hundred seven dentists participated in this study. An anonymous survey was conducted regarding the following areas: years of practice, characteristics of the radiography equipment, knowledge of diagnostic reference levels, prescription of dental radiographs, use of radiation protection procedures, and participation in the radiation safety program. Data were evaluated according to frequency distribution; the chi-squared test; and Fisher's exa...

The objective of OA biomarker research is to identify early OA prior to the appearance of radiographic signs and the development of pain. Areas covered This review has focused on extracellular genomic material that could serve as biomarkers of OA. Recent studies have examined the expression of extracellular genomic material such as miRNA, lncRNA, snoRNA, mRNA and cell-free DNA, which are aberrantly expressed in the body fluids of OA patients. Changes in genomic content of peripheral blood mononuclear cells in OA could also function as biomarkers of OA. Expert commentary There is an unmet need for soluble biomarkers for det...

In this study, predictors of incomplete occlusion at last angiographic follow-up after PED treatment were assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of consecutive aneurysms treated with the PED between 2009 and 2016, at 3 academic institutions in the United States, was performed. Cases with angiographic follow-up were selected to evaluate factors predictive of incomplete aneurysm occlusion at last follow-up. RESULTS: We identified 465 aneurysms treated with the PED; 380 (81.7%) aneurysms (329 procedures; median age, 58 years; female/male ratio, 4.8:1) had angiographic follow-up, and were included. Complet...
