Conclusions: The results demonstrated that PLC injuries are frequently misdiagnosed. Correlations between certain radiological parameters associated with PLC injuries can be useful indicators of the presence of such injuries requiring surgery. PMID: 30326695 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Srivastava A, Nanda G, Mahajan R, Nanda A, Batra S, Mishra N, Pandita N, Chhabra HS Abstract Study Design: Observational study of computed tomography (CT) data. Purpose: We performed a CT-based radiographic analysis of sub-axial cervical lamina in the Indian population to assess the feasibility of laminar screws. Overview of Literature: Morphometric studies have been performed for populations of various ethnic groups, but none exist for Indian populations. Methods: Cervical spine CT scans of 50 adults with a minimum slice thickness of

Authors: Manabe N, Covaro A, Bobinski L, Shimizu T, Olerud C, Robinson Y Abstract Study Design: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data. Purpose: To describe the radiological characteristics of the occipitocervical area in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) using the novel measure X-angle and to describe the correlation between the ankylosed occipitoatlantoaxial (OAA) joint and thoracic kyphosis (TK). Overview of Literature: AS affects the axial skeleton, leading to progressive ankylosis of all vertebral segments. The effect of ankylosis on the upper cervical area of these patients is ...

Authors: Mohamad G, Amritanand R, David KS, Krishnan V, Arockiaraj J Abstract Study Design: Retrospective case series. Purpose: The aim of this study was to analyze functional and radiological outcomes in patients with culture-negative pyogenic vertebral osteomyelitis (PVO). Overview of Literature: There were only few literature available for these group of patients. Methods: Patients with biopsy-positive but culture-negative PVO were included. We analyzed records for data on demography, comorbidities, coexisting infections, neurological status, prior antibiotic therapy, pre- and postoperative erythrocy...

CONCLUSION: Dural arteriovenous fistula is an uncommon intracranial vascular malformation rarely seen by otolaryngologists, with pulsatile tinnitus being the usual presentation. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of dural arteriovenous fistula presenting with conductive hearing loss and otalgia. PMID: 30322412 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Mayer, Yaniv / Ben-Dor, Anat / Zigdon-Giladi, Hadar / Gutmacher, ZviPage 841 - 847Objective: The aim of this retrospective study was to measure the sinus membrane's dimensional changes following maxillary sinus augmentation via a lateral approach, and to examine the variables affecting changes in the membrane's thickness.Method and Materials: Sixty-six sinuses corresponding to 50 patients (15 males and 35 females) who underwent lateral wall maxillary sinus augmentation (34 unilateral and 16 bilateral) were retrospectively evaluated. The sinus membrane thickness was measured on cross-sectional cone beam computed tomography ...

Abstract: This literature review has critically analyzed the published research related to the biomechanical preparation of root canals with three-dimensional analysis using micro-computed tomography (micro-CT). In December 2017, six databases (PubMed, Cochrane, Web of Science, Embase, Scopus, and Science Direct) were accessed using keywords to find articles including the use of the micro-CT analysis in biomechanical root canal preparation. There were 60 full articles that were selected, which were screened and read by two authors. The research that was reviewed and analyzed included root canal anatomy and sample selection...

Abstract: Root perforation results in the communication between root canal walls and periodontal space (external tooth surface). It is commonly caused by an operative procedural accident or pathological alteration (such as extensive dental caries, and external or internal inflammatory root resorption). Different factors may predispose to this communication, such as the presence of pulp stones, calcification, resorptions, tooth malposition (unusual inclination in the arch, tipping or rotation), an extra-coronal restoration or intracanal posts. The diagnosis of dental pulp and/or periapical tissue previous to root perforatio...
