Interplay between toothbrush stiffness and dentifrice abrasivity on the development of non-carious cervical lesions

ConclusionsToothbrush stiffness was an important factor on NCCL development, especially when brushing with medium- and higher-abrasive slurries.Clinical relevanceMedium and hard toothbrushes associated with medium- and high-abrasive toothpastes can yield more severe NCCLs.

Conclusion The current study identified mood affected through the fronto-limbic-striatal circuit in PSD. Hyperconnectivity between the amygdala, default mode network, and salience network might be related to depressive symptoms, which may provide novel insight into the underlying neuropathologic mechanisms of PSD in temporal lobe lesions.

Hypertension, raised blood pressure due to age-related dysfunction of blood vessels, is an important process in aging. It is one of the more important ways in which low-level biochemical damage and cellular malfunctioning is converted into high level structural damage to tissues. Pressure damage to the sensitive tissues of the brain, kidney, lungs, and more causes large degrees of functional loss when taking place over years. In the brain, rupture of capillaries leads to countless tiny, unnoticed strokes, each destroying a small volume of brain tissue. This slowly adds up to produce cognitive decline and dementia, one smal...

How can empathetic people let loose the burden of other people’s emotions? When your body has disease, illness or painful conditions, suppressed (somatized) emotion can exacerbate symptoms and escalate deterioration or decline. In my last article, I shared a practice for identifying and acknowledging emotional energy to avoid suppressing it into the energy system of the physical body. Validating and embracing emotions that you may have been taught are unacceptable or inappropriate for you, and taking ownership for clearing and releasing the energetic backlog empowers you to experience your life more wholly and holist...

AbstractWe evaluated the predictive value of several clinical, radiological and laboratory parameters on the risk of predict intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). We conducted a case-control study on a consecutive hospital based series of patients with AF and ICH. A random sample of subjects with AF without ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke was selected from the same hospital in the same period to perform as the control group, with a ratio of two controls per case. All patients underwent the same evaluation protocol. Patients without neuroimaging exams were excluded. During the study period ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Increased CSF stroke volume through the cerebral aqueduct has been proposed as a possible indicator of positive surgical outcome in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus; however, consensus is lacking. In this prospective study, we aimed to compare CSF flow parameters in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus with those in healthy controls and change after shunt surgery and to investigate whether any parameter could predict surgical outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-one patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus and 21 age- and sex-matched healthy c...

Sound, rhythm, rate, structure, function – countless features of the heart are measured to keep it healthy for as long as possible. Recently, an army of digital health technologies joined the forces of traditional preventive tools in cardiology to counter stroke, heart attack, heart failure or any other cardiovascular risks. In the future, minuscule sensors, digital twins, and artificial intelligence could strengthen their ranks. Let’s see what the future of cardiology might look like! Fitness trackers, chatbots and A.I. against heart disease Let’s say 36-year-old Maria living in Sao Paulo in 2033 d...

satti Since the release of the first Kinect in 2011, low-cost technologies for upper-limb evaluation has been employed frequently for rehabilitation purposes. However, a limited number of studies have assessed the potential of the Kinect V2 for motor evaluations. In this paper, a simple biomechanical protocol has been developed, in order to assess the performances of healthy people and patients, during daily-life reaching movements, with focus on some of the patients’ common compensatory strategies. The assessment considers shoulder range of motion, elbow range of motion, trunk compensatory strategies, and mo...

Conclusions: Agreement values are on the same order or higher compared to a literature review of CT-based ASPECTS. Automated methods perform slightly worse than human expert ratings, but they still have enough power to determine the DWI-ASPECTS with good precision in a clinical setting.

CONCLUSIONS: Moderate strength of the relationship between measures of HRV and cardiac response to exercise suggests that cardiac autonomic function is not good indicator of overall function and pumping capability of the heart in chronic heart failure.
