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.

Sepsis is a life-threatening response to infection often times requiring endotracheal intubation in critically ill patients. Etomidate is routinely used as an intravenous induction agent to provide sedation and amnesia before placing an endotracheal tube. Although etomidate has many favorable qualities, there is a major concern regarding the predictable adrenal insufficiency that follows its use. Controversy continues to this day as to whether etomidate should be avoided in the setting of sepsis or septic shock.

This report of severe early adrenal insufficiency caused by a heterozygous mutation of the CYP11A1 gene clearly demonstrates that SCC deficiency may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait in humans. PMID: 29995203 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract BACKGROUND: HELLP syndrome is a disorder associated with serious maternal morbidity and mortality. Distinguishing HELLP from other pregnancy related disorders is often challenging and may result in delay of treatment. Differential diagnoses include acute fatty liver of pregnancy, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, antiphospholipid syndrome, and hemolytic uremic syndrome, and are reviewed in this chapter. While there is not any current treatment for HELLP, the mainstay of treatment involves maternal stabilization and timely delivery. Various treatment strategies have been attempted to help decrease the m...

We report middle age man with skin hyperpigmentation oral and lip mucous membranes, general malaise and depression. Further examinations lead to adrenal insufficiency, Addison's disease. Imaging studies show bilateral adrenal hyperplasia, show negative result for tuberculosis.We perform laparoscopic adrenalectomy. Multiple caseosa necrosis in gross specimen and Langhan's giant cells microscopic appearance ensure patient suffered Addison's disease cause by adrenal gland tuberculosis.

We present a case of a 65-year-old male with jaundice and without hepatitis A, B, or C. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography showed a patent biliary tract. Liver pathology revealed no malignancy but showed bile stasis compatible with cholestatic hepatitis. The patient's jaundice persisted for 7 weeks, and at the same time, adrenal insufficiency was diagnosed. Adrenal insufficiency was recovered with glucocorticoid therapy, and the jaundice was cured.

Amodu, Jamil Alexis, Aron Soleiman, Meredith Akerman, Poppy Addison, Toni Iurcotta, Horacio L. Rodriguez RiloAbstractBackgroundPancreatectomies have been identified as procedures with an increased risk of readmission. In surgical patients, readmissions within 30 days of discharge are usually procedure-related. We sought to determine predictors of 30-day readmission following pancreatic resections in a large healthcare system.MethodsWe retrospectively collected information from the records of 383 pati...

Typical manifestations of primary adrenal insufficiency include hyperpigmentation, hypotension, hypoglycaemia, hyponatremia with or without hyperkalemia that are generally preceded by nonspecific symptoms at the onset. Recessively inherited monoge...

ACTH deficiency may be isolated or, more frequently, occur in conjunction with other pituitary hormone deficiencies and midline defects. Gene...
