Manual versus rotary instrumentation for primary molar pulpectomies- A 24 months randomized clinical trial

Publication date: Available online 29 March 2018Source: Pediatric Dental JournalAuthor(s): R. Morankar, A. Goyal, K. Gauba, A. Kapur, S.K. BhatiaAbstractObjectiveThe study compared manual and rotary canal instrumentation differences in primary molars receiving pulpectomy and their effect on clinical success after two years.Materials and methodsSixty pulpally involved primary mandibular second molars requiring pulpectomy treatment were randomly assigned for manual or rotary instrumentation in children aged 4–7 years. The endodontic procedural steps were similar except the method of root canal instrumentation i.e. manual group (Stainless steel files 2% taper) and rotary group (Hyflex CM NiTi rotary files 4% taper).ResultsThe mean instrumentation time for the manual and rotary groups were 25.71 ± 3.84 and 19.37 ± 4.94 min respectively with a statistically significant difference (p

Authors: Costa DC, de O Silveira L, Queiroz SI, Dantas WR, Da Silva JS, Germano AR Abstract BACKGROUND: Chemical curettage has become popular in the definitive treatment of benign aggressive odontogenic lesions. Therefore, this study aims to verify the relapse rate and associated factors after the enucleation protocol, peripheral ostectomy and Carnoy's solution. METHODS: This is a retrospective sectional study with 30 patients, selected by non-probabilistic convenience sampling, submitted to the protocol from 2008 to 2018. The study was composed by the data collection phase of the medical records and clinical a...

AbstractThoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) is a rare neurovascular disorder generally caused by the presence of a cervical rib or hypertrophic scalene anterior muscle that can compress the brachial plexus and/or subclavian vessels. In the vascular form, the symptoms are caused by the compression of the artery and/or the subclavian vein. In the first case, the compression is caused by the cervical rib and leads to hypo-perfusion with cooling and cyanosis of the upper limb, while in the second case, the compression is caused by the anterior scalene muscle and leads to congestion, cyanosis, swelling and pain in the higher limb. I...

The aim of this study was to propose new radiographic markers, the coraco-lesser tuberosity angle (CLA), lesser tuberosity angle (LTA) and lesser tuberosity height (LTH). The hypothesis was that higher values of CLA, LTA, and LTH would be associated with ...

Authors: Wang J, Zhang Y, Lu X, Xi C, Yu K, Gao R, Bi K Abstract Background: Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) can clinically and radiographically mimic an abscess or breast cancer. Although IGM is benign, it can cause the breast skin to appear "riddled with holes" and can even result in the loss of the breast. The optimal treatment has not been established. Methods: We retrospectively studied the medical records of 200 patients with IGM who were treated for skin rupture from June 2015 to June 2017 in our institute. The patients' treatment modalities (including surgery after steroid therapy and ster...

ConclusionIn this tale of 2 professions, radiology gained official specialty designation in the field of medicine. The medical profession had a monopoly on health care, and thus had few internal and external barriers to overcome. Chiropractic was oppressed by organized medicine, which helped to create the unofficial specialty of chiropractic radiology but which also later helped to limit the specialty. Chiropractic radiology has maintained its independence and autonomy, but also remains on the fringe of mainstream health care.
