Improved single visit management of old infected iatrogenic root perforations using Biodentine ®
ConclusionsIn single visit treatments, Biodentine seems to provide a biocompatible and effective seal in acidic environment, in accidental root perforations, even if the treatment is performed by an inexperienced operator and regardless of the location, the size and the time of occurrence of the perforation.
ConclusionsAthletes with a history of scaphoid repair are not at significant risk for diminished participation during their first season in the NFL.
ConclusionsPosterior THA with proper cup positioning and meticulous soft tissue repair is an effective treatment option for DFNF with low dislocation risk.
CONCLUSION: It is likely that the use of alendronate did not have a direct influence on the amount of bone neoformation, however it did influence the bone quality in a dose-dependent manner, ultimately affecting the distance and quantity of the trabeculae. PMID: 30364827 [PubMed]
CONCLUSION: In any woman undergoing surgery to remove a migrated IUD, complete exposure and removal of the IUD are necessary to avoid fracturing of the IUD, secondary breakage and residue. PMID: 30324812 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Bullet embolization of the arterial or venous systems is a rare complication of penetrating gunshot injuries. A 29-year-old man presented at the emergency department with a gunshot wound to the left arm, which had transfixed the arm and entered the thorax, with no exit wound. Initial radiographies showed a projectile in the upper left thigh. Contrast-enhanced tomography showed a pseudo-aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta and the bullet inside the proximal left superficial femoral artery. Physical examination found diminished left pedal pulses, and the patient complained of left toe numbness. Endovascular tho...

Controversy exists about the optimal treatment of acute uncomplicated type B aortic dissection (auTBAD). Optimal medical therapy (OMT) provides excellent short-term outcomes, but long-term results are poor. Ideally, auTBAD patients who will fail to respond to OMT in the chronic phase could be identified and undergo thoracic endovascular aortic repair. The purpose of this study was to identify radiographic predictors of auTBAD patients who will fail to respond to OMT.
Delayed repair of orbital trapdoor fractures can jeopardize the viability of entrapped contents and prolong recovery. Variation in presentations, both clinically and radiographically, complicate prompt diagnosis. The oculocardiac reflex may be the only indication of fracture with entrapped orbital contents, but, unfortunately, the reflex has variable onset patterns and can mimic common diagnoses. Therefore, the authors present the case of a 14-year-old male with a right orbital floor fracture, who presented with delayed symptoms secondary to an oculocardiac reflex. The vagal sequelae of the reflex, including gastric hypera...
