Favorable residual stress induction by resin-cementation on dental porcelain

In this study we explore whether shrinkage stresses generated on photo-polymerisation of the resin-cement are sufficient to induce ceramic surface defect stabilization, and we quantify the transient nature of the induced stresses.

Conclusions The SDC regimen for 5 days postoperatively in neonates was safe and did not cause suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Furthermore, the open heart operation per se did not lead to adrenal insufficiency in neonates.

CONCLUSION: Patients with chronic pulmonary conditions have risk of perioperative complications. Their pulmonary treatment regimens should be maintained in the perioperative period to reduce the risk of such complications. PMID: 28925861 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractBackgroundHyponatremia can unmask hypopituitarism and secondary adrenal insufficiency. This is important, since the need to screen for steroid deficiency, in patients with hyponatremia is often neglected.Patients and methodsIn a retrospective study, twenty-five patients (13f/12m, age 58.9  ± 18.6 years) with hyponatremia (119.7 ± 10.5 mmol/L) were identified among 260 in-patients treated for hypopituitarism in our specialized endocrine unit, over the last decade. We analyzed clinical characteristics, etiology, and severity of hypopituitarism in patients who presented...

We describe a teaching hospital's resources and the national workforce and education in this LMIC capacity report. METHODS: A prospective observational study was conducted at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi, Ghana, during 4 weeks in August 2016. Teaching hospital data were generated from observations of hospital facilities and patient care, review of archival records, and interviews with KATH personnel. National data were obtained from interviews with KATH personnel, correspondence with Ghana's anesthesia society, and review of public records. RESULTS: The practice of anesthesia at KATH incorporat...

Conclusion.In this retrospective series, mitotane had a low response rate and low tumor control rate; however, a disproportionately high complete response rate suggested it should be used in selected individuals. Adrenal insufficiency is common with mitotane use and aggressive treatment with steroid supplementation should be considered when appropriate to avoid excess toxicities. Biomarkers are desperately needed to further define this disease.Implications for Practice.This is the first objective report of single‐agent mitotane using modern objective criteria. Although the vast majority of patients did not respond (and t...

Conclusion: This nationwide study of the epidemiology of hospital admissions for a principal diagnosis of AI/hypopituitarism shows that admissions generally decreased with age; males had higher rates of admission for hypopituitarism; females had higher rates of admission for CAH and “other and unspecified causes” of AI; and AC incidence varied by age and sex. Increased awareness of AI and AC prevention strategies may reduce some of these admissions.Horm Res Paediatr

Abstract BackgroundVery few studies about adrenal insufficiency (AI) have been published with regard to non‐transfusion‐dependent (NTD) thalassemia, and none of those studies involved α‐thalassemia patients. The aim of this study was therefore to determine the prevalence of AI in patients with NTD α‐thalassemia, and to identify factors that predict the development of AI in this thalassemia subpopulation. MethodsThis cross‐sectional descriptive study was conducted in NTD α‐thalassemic children at three referral hospitals in Thailand in 2015–2016. Preliminary screening for AI was done usin...
