Birooted primary canines identified in 8-year-old Japanese girl – Case report

This report presents a rare case of birooted bilateral maxillary primary canines. A Japanese girl aged 8 years 10 months was referred to the Pediatric Dentistry Clinic of Osaka University Dental Hospital by an orthodontic dentist to extract maxillary bilateral primary canines. The canines appeared to be birooted in panoramic radiography and were extracted under infiltration anesthesia. Both visual observation and computed tomography findings revealed that the birooted primary canine had 2 roots for each root canal. In spite of the rareness of this condition, it should be kept in mind because of potential problems in affected patients.

The radiological hallmark of this tumor is a nidus, which is a small round area of relative radiolucency. Osteoid osteoma can involve any bone but is most commonly found in long bones and is extremely rare in the head ...

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) consists of acute hypoxemic respiratory failure characterized by massive and heterogeneously distributed loss of lung aeration caused by diffuse inflammation and edema present in interstitial and alveolar spaces. It is defined by consensus criteria, which include diffuse infiltrates on chest imaging —either plain radiography or computed tomography. This review will summarize how imaging sciences can inform modern respiratory management of ARDS and continue to increase the understanding of the acutely injured lung. This review also describes newer imaging methodologies that a...

In this report, we present the long-term functional and radiological outcomes following nonoperative treatment of such a fracture in a 5-year-old female. The patient was referred to our tertiary centre with radiological progression of angulation from 10° to 35° within 5 weeks of the injury, despite wearing a rigid collar. She had no neurological compromise. Although we examined the fracture under general anaesthetic, and subsequently applied halo traction, there was no effect on alignment. The halo device was removed after 11 days and a rigid collar was fitted again. The patient had no pain or neurological symptoms...

A 78-year-old female presented with dislocation of a dual mobility hip prosthesis. On standard radiographs after closed reduction, the hip prosthesis appeared to be properly reduced, but clinically the hip was unstable. A Computed Tomography showed a round foreign body, that was in fact a dislocation of the intra-prosthetic implant. This was confirmed intra-operatively during revision surgery. Intra-prosthetic dislocation is a specific complication of dual mobility system. Classically, it's a late complication, linked to the wear of retention area of the polyethylene insert. In this case report we describe an unusual reaso...

A single stage endoscopic trans-oral decompression and stabilization can be used in such patients. It has not been described so far to the best of authors' knowledge. This ...
