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.

NTARS has also been reported after head-and-neck surgery, but it is extremely rare after otoplasty. A case of NTARS after bilateral otoplasty is reported under local anesthesia, a 15-year-old female being presented with painful torticollis. The diagnosis of atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation wa...

AbstractPurposeTo investigate airway development and airway resistance by computed tomographic three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the bronchial tree in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). We evaluated factors predicting postoperative respiratory complications to provide timely treatment, prevent complications, and improve operative and anesthetic safety.MethodsFrom August 2015 to August 2017, 53 AIS patients with a mean age of 15.4  years (range 10–20 years) were included in this study. Scoliotic parameters on radiographs were analyzed. Airway resistance was obtained by pulmonary func...

Epidural catheter retention is a rare complication; its etiology may come from lateral migration with kinking of the catheter or from involvement with bone, ligamentous, muscular, vascular structures, or nerve roots. Up until today, there is not a standard approach to this complication; however, there are some recommendations for the management of retained epidural cath...

ConclusionA rare case of avulsion fracture of the gastrocnemius muscle combined with multiple ligament injuries before closure of the growth plate is described. A satisfactory result was obtained by fixation of the avulsed bone fragments of the gastrocnemius muscle and medial collateral ligament. The authors believe that avulsion fracture of the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle associated with posterior cruciate ligament injury should be repaired.

ConclusionPatients with an increased femoral anteversion angle (>  30°) had inferior postoperative clinical outcomes, including greater patellar laxity, a higher rate of residual J-sign and lower patient-reported outcomes after medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction and combined tibial tubercle osteotomy for the treatment of recurrent patellar instabilit y.Level of evidenceIII, retrospective cohort study.

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...
