Deep-learning classification using convolutional neural network for evaluation of maxillary sinusitis on panoramic radiography

ConclusionsThe diagnostic performance of the deep-learning system for maxillary sinusitis on panoramic radiographs was sufficiently high. Results from the deep-learning system are expected to provide diagnostic support for inexperienced dentists.

ConclusionDental implants complications are not uncommon. managing such complications are important to prevent serious complications. Non dental manifestations can also occur, such as this case, where chronic headache and sinusitis were observed. Accurate locating of the specific site of implant placement and knowledge of the anatomical landmark are important. Displaced dental implants into the maxillary sinus must be removed as soon as possible to avoid further complications.

ConclusionsMost of the analyzed maxillary sinus cavities in the present population had a patent PMO. Being male and having morphological changes of the sinus mucosa were factors associated with a reduced prevalence of a patent PMO.Clinical relevanceA maxillary sinus with pathological findings of the mucosa seems to have a reduced prevalence of patent PMOs. Therefore, clinicians should take care to assess any clinical and radiographical sign indicating a potential maxillary sinusitis prior to surgical interventions in this region, especially in cases with planned sinus floor elevation.

​BY GREGORY TAYLOR, DO, &SCOTT LAGERVELD, DOA 54-year-old man with a significant past medical history of atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure presented to the ED with a chief complaint of difficulty walking. He was evaluated at an outside hospital two months earlier, and was found to have methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia, lower extremity cellulitis, and acute decompensated congestive heart failure (CHF). He clinically improved over one week, his autoimmune workup was negative, and he was discharged. He failed to follow up with nephrology, cardiology, and dermatology, and st...

Odontogenic sinusitis (OS) is a disease commonly encountered by otolaryngologists and oral surgeons. There is currently no standard consensus for the management of the causative teeth of OS, and the therapeutic outcomes of endodontic surgery remain unclear. The authors herein report the outcomes of simultaneous surgery for OS, endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) with endoscopic apicoectomy. Twenty-one OS patients who underwent ESS were included in the intent-to-treat population. Eleven patients who simultaneously underwent endoscopic apicoectomy were included as the study group, and another 10 patients who were subjected to the...

Ridge atrophy accompanied by the pneumatization of maxillary sinus in the maxillary posterior region may lead to inadequate bone height, thereby precluding implant placement. Therefore, it may be mandatory to perform a sinus membrane elevation procedure and augmentation in the bone. The present study aimed to introduce a novel modification method for sinus floor elevation using a gelatin sponge (Gelatamp, COLTÈNE ROEKO, India) in order for better visualization, hemostasis, and conservative maxillary sinus membrane dissection with the low risk of complications. Implant placement was performed in a case series of 28 p...

ConclusionsThe maxillary sinuses of this female showed no signs of sinusitis related to theconcha bullosa.SignificanceThis study provides new evidence on the chronological limits of this condition. The particular funeral rites of these populations have preserved the majority of skeletons at this site in an excellent condition.LimitationsThe identification ofconcha bullosa continues to be rare in ancient populations, in part due to the poor preservation of nasal bones in archeological collections.Suggestions for further research: Detailed study of the nasal cavity of adequately preserved individuals can be expected to ident...

CONCLUSIONS: The potential benefit of antibiotics to treat acute rhinosinusitis diagnosed either clinically (low risk of bias, high-quality evidence) or confirmed by imaging (low to unclear risk of bias, moderate-quality evidence) is marginal and needs to be seen in the context of the risk of adverse effects. Considering antibiotic resistance, and the very low incidence of serious complications, we conclude there is no place for antibiotics for people with uncomplicated acute rhinosinusitis. We could not draw conclusions about children, people with suppressed immune systems, and those with severe sinusitis, because these p...
