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.

Conclusion: Our findings indicate that the genetic test based on WES can be useful in diagnosing SYM1 patients, with particular advantages in preventing the fetus from contacting harmful X-ray through the traditional radiography. The novel pathogenic mutation identified would further expand our understanding of the mutation spectrum of NOG in association with SYM1 disease and provide a guidance on how to determine whether the fetus is affected by SYM1 through the prenatal diagnosis. Introduction Proximal symphalangism (MIM#185800, SYM1) is a rare autosomal dominant bone disorder with principal features of variable ...

Poor clinical results are seen with syndesmotic injuries in the setting of ankle sprains and ankle fractures. The goal of syndesmosis repair is to restore the normal anatomic relationship of the distal tibiofibular joint and prevent ankle arthritis. Indications for surgical intervention for isolated syndesmotic injuries include frank syndesmosis diastasis, medial clear space widening on plain radiographs, significant radiographic syndesmosis diastasis during stress examination, or subtle syndesmotic diastasis detected by arthroscopic evaluation. Complications after syndesmosis repair include symptomatic hardware, malreduct...

Glenohumeral instability is a rare indication for primary reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA), accounting for fewer than 1% of the indications in the literature. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical and radiographic outcomes of RTSA for recurrent instability after failed operative repair or instability associated with major bone loss in elderly patients.

AbstractSeveral therapeutic strategies have been proposed to optimize the conventional treatment of fractures. Photobiomodulation (PBM) appears to help reduce pain and control inflammation, and it also accelerates bone repair. This systematic review aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of PBM with low-level laser therapy (LLLT) in the bone fracture healing process. We included randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the effects of PBM with those of any other intervention in adults with lower or upper limb bone fractures. The primary outcomes investigated were pain reduction, radiographic healing, and advers...

Authors: Fowler TP Abstract Injuries to the scapholunate (SL) and lunotriquetral (LT) interosseous ligaments occur in approximately one third of distal radius fractures. The diagnosis of these injuries is challenging because plain radiographs are not reliably diagnostic. Wrist arthroscopy may be the most accurate way to examine and diagnose soft-tissue injuries of the carpus adjacent to a distal radius fracture. Treatment options for SL and LT ligament injuries include open repair and/or percutaneous pinning. Because the natural history of these injuries is unclear, the necessity of diagnosing and treating these SL...

Abstract Different types of DNA damages caused by ionizing radiation may enhance the cancer risk in exposed individuals. Inherited variations in DNA repair genes cause the inter-individual variability in response to ionizing radiation. The purpose of this study was to determine the association between single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of two important DNA repair genes (XRCC1 R399Q and XRCC3 T241M) and the level of DNA damage investigated by micronucleus (MN) frequency in peripheral blood lymphocytes of 120 industrial radiographers (IR) and 120 non-exposed control individuals. The frequencies of MN and nucleopla...

Rationale: The old Monteggia fracture is an uncommon lesion pattern in adult, which may lead to the potential complications such as recurrent dislocation of the radial head, heterotopic ossification of the elbow, nerve palsy, malunion of the ulna, and residual forearm deformity. However, the secondary distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) dislocation is rarely reported in the similar lesion. Here we present a unique reoperation of old Monteggia fracture combined with secondary DRUJ disruption after the initial operation failure. Patient concerns: A 38-year-old male presented to our hospital outpatient office complaining of l...
