ConclusionGreater severity of OLP and OLL seems to be associated with increased levels of anxiety, higher scores of oral health impact profile, and decreased QoL.Clinical relevancePatients with severe OLP/OLL may benefit from additional therapeutic treatments, such as psychological and/or psychiatric management, concomitant to treatment specific to oral lesions.

Authors: Van Slambrouck J, Vlasselaers J, Devos B Abstract Peritoneal tuberculosis is a rare extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis. Considering the diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis in a low prevalence setting can be vital for the further clinical management in selected patients.In a young male with migration background, presenting with generalised abdominal pain, computed tomography revealed ascites, omental and peritoneal thickening and enlarged mesentery lymph nodes. Computed tomography also revealed a distal ureteral calculus at the right vesico-ureteral junction. Diagnostic laparoscopy showed a nodul...

Using data from 2017 release of the American Community Survey, I construct a household residential location choice model and value climate amenities from the trade-offs among housing cost, climate amenities, and other locational attributes in a metropolitan statistical area (MSA). On average, a retired household is willing to pay $1209 for a 1○C drop in average summer temperature, $1114 for a 1○C inc...

To resolve this issue, we have designed and developed the dual (pH and temperature) responsive bio-nanomaterial to improve the efficiency anesthetic drug delivery system. Chitosan is a uniq...

Paediatric morbidity and mortality as well as child development disorders are significantly associated with maternal obesity. Particularly in the neurodevelopmental and psychiatric area, it is becoming increasingly clear that, in children of mothers with an increased body mass index (BMI), there is a high correlation with child...

Painful neuromas are not uncommon following nerve injury, and are especially bothersome in the hand, with severe cases resulting in significant disability. Outcomes of neuroma surgery are unpredictable regardless of technique. It is recognized that optimal soft tissue environment influences nerve healing more than the specific nerve graft technique, and it is in this context, we present a novel technique of transferring a posterior interosseous nerve graft along with vascularized synovial and fat tissue based on a branch of the posterior interosseous artery to provide healthy soft tissue for nerve healing of neuroma in con...

We describe a method by using combined wedge non-VBG to correct the nonunion deformity when treating scaphoid nonunion with pedicled VBG. The wedge bone graft was harvested just proximal to the 2,3 intercompartmental supraretinacular artery VBG and was used as an inlay at the volar site to correct the humpback deformity, whereas the VBG was set at the dorsal site for bone bridging and blood supply. We also present our results of 10 patients with scaphoid fracture nonunion and humpback deformity treated with this method. Bone healing was achieved and the lateral intrascaphoid angles could be improved in all the 10 patients....
