In this study, the joints of Inconel625 are made with CO2 Laser beam welding process. The experimentation is carried out with two sets of process parameters varying the laser power and estimating the response of the welded component. Radiography analysis and distortion in the weldments are carried out. Distortion is measured using the Vernier height gauge. The lower the better-quality characteristics are chosen for distortion. The welds are free from flaws and the lower heat input results in the lower distortion.

CONCLUSIONS: Impacted maxillary canines are usually diagnosed by using panoramic imaging or cone-beam computed tomography. Cone-beam computed tomography is the most accurate diagnostic method to identify the localisation of impacted maxillary canines. Palatal expansion can help to avoid the impaction of maxillary canines. Combined surgical and orthodontic treatment is used to treat impacted maxillary canines in permanent dentition.

We present the case of a 30-year-old Bissau-Guinean man with HIV-2 infection known for 16 years, irregularly treated, admitted with two weeks of fever, diarrhoea and cutaneous lesions. Examination revealed multiple subcutaneous nodes, Molluscum contagiosum-like lesions, generalized lymphadenopathy and painful palpation of the left iliac fossa. Laboratory tests showed severe nonhaemolytic anaemia and CD4+ count of 9/mm3, with normal creatinine and hepatic enzymes. Chest roentgenogram was unremarkable and a research for Mycobacterium tuberculosis by GeneXpert® was negative. Nonetheless, given the lack of further diagnost...

Authors: Hayashi D, Roemer FW, Guermazi A Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a well-established imaging technique for structural assessment of knee osteoarthritis (OA) particularly in a research context. Conventional MRI allows evaluation of morphological changes in osteoarthritis, and advanced compositional MRI techniques enable assessment of 'premorphologic' biochemical compositional changes of articular and periarticular tissues. Limitations of conventional radiography are well known, although radiography remains the primary imaging modality applied in osteoarthritis clinical trials to date. Hybrid tec...

Authors: Pincus T, Castrejon I, Yazici Y, Gibson KA, Bergman MJ, Block JA Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) may be associated with substantial work disability, morbidity, costs, and increased mortality rates, often similar to rheumatoid arthritis (RA), documented in many published reports over the last 4 decades. However, OA generally has been viewed as less severe than RA. This discrepancy may be explained in part by:a) RA may have been considerably more severe in the past, prior to effective therapies.b) most older individuals have radiographic joint damage, which often is not associated with clinical symptoms.c) RA i...

Low socioeconomic status and patient questionnaires in osteoarthritis: challenges to a "biomedical model" and value of a complementary "biopsychosocial model". Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2019 Sep-Oct;37 Suppl 120(5):18-23 Authors: Pincus T, Castrejon I Abstract Modern medical care is based largely on a paradigm known as a "biomedical model," in which "objective," high-technology biomarkers guide clinical care, and most health outcomes are determined by health professionals rather than individuals, using drugs as the primary therapy. The biomedical model is spectacularly...

Authors: Skou ST, Roos EM Abstract Most patients with knee and hip osteoarthritis (OA) should be treated in primary care by non-surgical treatments. Building on substantial evidence from randomised trials, exercise therapy and education, typically delivered by physical therapists, are core first line treatments universally recommended in treatment guidelines for OA alongside weight loss, if needed. Exercise therapy provides at least as effective pain relief as pharmacological pain medications, without serious adverse effects; furthermore, the treatment effect from exercise therapy is similar, irrespective of baseli...

We present images of 177Lu-DOTATATE scan and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT scan conducted on a 65-year-old man with prostate cancer with neuroendocrine differentiation, whose disease progressed despite conventional treatment and 177Lu-PSMA radioligand therapy; however, an extraordinary radiographic tumor remission, biochemical response, and improvement of clinical symptoms were observed after the patient underwent 177Lu-DOTATATE peptide receptor radionuclide therapy.

Conclusions: We describe here the first report of a potential abscopal effect in meningioma, summarize the limited literature on the topic of abscopal effects in cancer, and detail the existing hypothesis on how this phenomenon may occur and possibly relate to the development of future treatments for patients with metastatic disease.
