Expansion of the Zone of Keratinized Tissue for Healthy Implant Abutment Interface Using De-epithelialized Amnion/Chorion Allograft.

Expansion of the Zone of Keratinized Tissue for Healthy Implant Abutment Interface Using De-epithelialized Amnion/Chorion Allograft. Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent. 2019 May/Jun;39(3):e83-e88 Authors: De Angelis N, Kassim ZH, Frosecchi M, Signore A Abstract Keratinized tissue around implants is beneficial for soft tissue stability and esthetics. The aim of this investigation is to show the use of amnion/chorion membrane to increase the keratinized tissue. Fifteen patients were grafted with the allograft at the first or second stage of implant surgery. The mean values of keratinized tissue were 1.27 ± 0.46 mm, 2.00 ± 0.38 mm, 2.80 ± 0.78 mm, and 3.27 ± 0.80 mm at the initial evaluation and 7, 15, and 60 days postsurgery (prosthetic delivery was at day 60), respectively (P

Limited by the source of autograft, bone graft substitute tends to be the research focus. In the present study, we propose a strategy by using microarc oxidation (MAO) coated magnesium scaffold as a large segmental bone graft substitute, utilizing its combination of strength, degradability, and controllable corrosion rate.

Conclusion: Infectious corneal ulcer was the most common indication, and PKP was the most prevalent technique in patients undergoing corneal transplantation. DALK was an emerging alternative surgical treatment in patients with corneal disorders in which corneal endothelium is spared. PMID: 31114647 [PubMed]

Traditional reconstruction of major alveolar ridge deficiency has required autogenous cortical cancellous particulate bone grafts, often augmented with particulate allogeneic components. Now there is a new concept to consider, that of orthoalveolar form. This paradigm shift involves components of the tissue engineering triad of inductive growth factors combined with a matrix and stem cells, together with osteotomies or devices designed for space maintenance. Reported here is early experience with computer technology used to redesign deficient alveolar ridges deriving ideal alveolar-shaped bone-forms made from powdered tita...

Terminal complement inhibition therapy with eculizumab (a humanized monoclonal antibody to C5) has revolutionized the treatment of patients with thrombotic microangiopathy. Successful responders are often placed on long-standing therapy to prevent disease recurrence in the native kidney or allograft. The tissue deposition of eculizumab in patients with C3 glomerulopathy has been described but no studies have yet investigated tissue deposition of eculizumab in cases where it was indicated for thrombotic microangiopathy which, unlike C3 glomerulopathy, does not usually show immune-type electron dense deposits.

T cell modulation in the clinical background of autoimmune diseases or allogeneic cell and organ transplantations with concurrent preservation of their natural immunological functions (e.g. pathogen defense) is the major obstacle in immunology. An anti human CD4 antibody (MAX.16H5) was applied intravenously in clinical trials for the treatment of autoimmune diseases (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis) and acute late-onset rejection after transplantation of a renal allograft. The response rates were remarkable and no critical allergic problems or side effects were obtained. During the treatment of autoimmune diseases with the murin...

These injuries typically occur among adolescent and young adult athletes during contact sports, such as hockey, wrestling, and rugby. Low-grade AC joint separations (Rockwood grade I-II) are often successfully treated nonoperatively. High-grade AC joint separations (Rockwood grade IV-VI) have the potential to alter scapular kinematics, causing painful and restricted motion, and are ...

Conclusion: Biological restoration of elbow anatomy using osteoarticular irradiated graft for proximal ulna reconstruction offers great joint stability and functional outcomes. Although the potential risks of infection and graft failure need to be considered, reconstruction with the size-matched radiated autograft eliminates donor site morbidity, offers a low-cost alternative to endoprosthesis, and provides outcomes superior to any other methods of reconstruction as analyzed from the literature.

We present a technique for single-stage reconstruction of chronic FDP lacerations, particularly in the setting of “lumbrical plus” fingers. The key features of this technique are: the FDS is detached from the middle phalanx and advanced to the distal FDP stump; and the proximal stump of the FDP is advanced to reestablish proper lumbrical tension and sewn to the FDS tendon proximally. Postoperative therapy is according to standard, well-accepted flexor tendon rehabilitation protocols. This procedure avoids the need for tendon autograft harvest, and avoids the tensioning challenges of other FDP reconstruction tec...
