DR JASON WELLEN (St Louis, MO): Dr Cannon and colleagues have presented a retrospective analysis of United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) data comparing the outcomes of kidney transplantation, after a simultaneous liver kidney transplantation (SLK), compared with a matched cohort of kidney transplants. They used UNOS data between 2003 and 2012 in order to incorporate the changes to the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) allocation. Their manuscript sought to illustrate the potential lost life years of kidney allografts that are being transplanted as SLKs.

AbstractBackgroundReconstruction of combined segmental and cavitary defects of the acetabulum is a challenge to the hip surgeon. One question regards the efficacy of reconstruction of acetabular defects using a combination of tantalum metal augments (TMAs) and impaction graft in single-stage revision for periprosthetic infection.Materials and methodsIn the period between July 2009 and August 2014, 24 patients with combined segmental and cavitary acetabular defects and Paprosky classification grade IIB, IIC, and IIIA had hips reconstructed using the combination of TMAs and antibiotic-loaded impaction grafting. A similar gro...

Authors: Hengjeerajaras P, Froum SJ, Adawi HAA, Yu P, Cho SC Abstract The aim of this report is to present a case with a 10-year follow-up of a single anterior tooth dental implant replacement with a xenogenous bone graft in a patient with a large bone defect associated with a cleft lip and palate. At 10 years postloading, the implant was healthy and well-integrated. Although the implant restoration appeared slightly intruded due to growth and development at that time, the patient was happy with the esthetic result and refused corrections of the uneven occlusal plane.

Authors: Sebaoun A, Nemcovsky CE, Beitlitum I, Moses O Abstract Free connective tissue grafts, barrier membranes, pedicle flaps, soft tissue allografts, and xenografts have been described for root coverage and augmenting the zone of attached gingiva. The present report evaluated a modified tunnel surgical procedure for root coverage of mandibular anterior teeth where a connective tissue graft was combined with a tunnel and double papilla flap. Fourteen patients with 18 consecutive Miller Class I or II gingival recession defects in the anterior mandible were treated with a connective tissue graft combined with a tun...

Authors: El Chaar E, Urtula AB, Georgantza A, Cruz S, Fallah-Abed P, Castaño A, Abitbol T, Warner MM Abstract This multicenter study retrospectively evaluated implant survival and bone growth in atrophic ridges that were augmented with titanium mesh and 100% mineralized solvent-dehydrated bone allografts (MSDBA). A secondary objective of this study was to evaluate differences in outcomes by diagnostic model type. Titanium mesh was shaped on a diagnostic wax-up of the patient's jaw: Twenty-three patients (Group 1) had wax-ups on dental stone models, and 16 patients (Group 2) had wax-ups on models fabricated w...

Here we present a case with phrenic nerve, right upper lobe, bilateral brachiocephalic vein and superior vena cava involvement. Total venous reconstruction was carried out with a cryopreserved aortic allograft by using the aortic root, ongoing transverse arch and innominate arterial branch. The patient then had postop radiation therapy for a total of 63 Gy over 35 treatment days. Foll...
