The Effect of Platelet-Rich Fibrin on Soft Tissue and Crestal Bone in One-Stage Implant Placement in Fresh Extraction Sockets: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial
Conclusion: It can be concluded that mean crestal bone levels increased in PRF with bone ceramic group, whereas decrease in PRF group and both the groups are statistically significant. When the papillary levels are compared between the two groups, there was no statistical significance, but increased papillary levels were found in both the groups. The mean PPD was decreased in both the groups, but there was no statistical significance between the two groups.
Abstract Here, we report periodontal treatment including regenerative therapy in a patient with generalized chronic periodontitis. The patient was a 53-year-old woman who presented with the chief complaint of gingival swelling and tooth mobility in the right maxillary molar region. An initial examination revealed 36% of sites with a probing depth of ≥4 mm and 15.5% with bleeding on probing. Radiographic examination revealed vertical bone resorption in #15, 24, 27, 34, 37, 45, and 47. Horizontal resorption was noted in other regions. The clinical diagnosis was moderate chronic periodontitis. Initial periodontal ...
Perventricular VSD closure Perventricular VSD closure is a hybrid procedure in which the cardiac surgeon opens the chest and the cardiologist passes a sheath through the right ventricle to achieve a device closure of the ventricular septal defect (VSD). Hybrid procedures are done in hybrid suites with facility for both open heart surgery and radiographic equipment for cardiac catheterization and angiography (hybrid of open heart surgery theatre and cardiac catheterization laboratory or cathlab). Heart is exposed through a lower partial sternotomy. The advantage is that cardiopulmonary bypass is n...
CONCLUSION XSTAT use appears safe. It is rapid, reliable, and provides a high degree of hemorrhage control on first deployment. Sponge removal should always be followed by radiographic clearance. For patients with hemorrhage from cavitary wounds not amenable to tourniquet placement, this device was effective. Further study is warranted as XSTAT use becomes more widespread. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Therapeutic study, level V.
CONCLUSIONS: The use of the test mouth-rinse demonstrated some adjunctive benefits in the treatment of PiM. Complete disease resolution could not be achieved in every case. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. PMID: 30779246 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Introduction: Traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (TIH), brain injury with radiographic hemorrhage, is a common emergency department (ED) presentation, and encompasses a wide range of clinical syndromes. Patients with moderate and severe neurotrauma (Glasgow Coma Scale [GCS]
Conclusions: This study supports the role of sagittal thoracic alignment in affecting EBL/BV in AIS surgery. Male patients with severe thoracic lordosis (T5-T12≤0 degree) are the highest risk group for intraoperative bleeding. These findings are helpful in predicting the intraoperative blood loss for patients with AIS undergoing posterior spinal fusion. In addition to sex and number of fused levels, decreased thoracic kyphosis is associated with increased blood loss. Level of Evidence: Level III—prognostic study.
ConclusionsWithin the limitation of this study, no statistically significant differences could be found between the guided group and the control group at the 3-year follow-up.
CONCLUSION: In this study, it was possible to observe better clinical conditions in individuals who had attended annual appointments for maintenance purposes. PMID: 30695090 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONSSHCs present a rare sequela of SAH. Antiplatelet therapy during (but not before) SAH increases the risk of ventriculostomy-associated bleedings, but without further impact on the course and outcome of SAH. The use of thrombolytic agents for early effective anticoagulation carries relevant risk for major SHCs and poor outcome. PMID: 30684947 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Nonsurgical periodontal therapy was successful in improving clinical parameters and modulating the immune response in both forms of AgP. However, this therapeutic approach does not seem to affect the deficient level of important serum mediators involved in mechanisms of cell transmigration.
