Tuberculous Peritonitis in a Cerebral Palsy Patient: a Challenge in Diagnosis and Management

ConclusionThe diagnosis of TBP had been complicated by the presence of CP in the reported case. The underlying CP not only preclude the diagnosis of TBP, but also produced symptoms that mimicked a condition requiring surgery.

AbstractAplastic anemia (AA) has been reported to be associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but mostly with ulcerative colitis (UC). Little is known about the associations between AA and Crohn ’s disease (CD). We aim to determine the portraits of patients with AA-CD. Among a total of 657 patients with CD registered in Xijing Hospital of Digestive Diseases IBD center from January 2008 to October 2018, the patients diagnosed with concurrent AA were reviewed. Clinical presentation, medical history, endoscopic features, response to treatment, and prognosis in this set of patients were collected. Six male patie...

Normally, each month when new issues of journals are opened or scanned online, there can be an element of excitement together with an element of trepidation. The latter can stem from complicated tables concerning obscure genes that govern inflammatory pathways that interact with bacteria, tedious immunologic data, and metabolic novelties that boggle the mind. However, in this issue of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Overwater et  al1 have provided us with a breath of fresh air.

Conclusions: Since One Shape and Revo-S are both based on the rotational approach and WaveOne on reciprocal approach, less incidence of postoperative pain intensity with One Shape and Revo-S in single-appointment nonsurgical endodontic retreatment could be associated with the motion type during root canal shaping.

Conclusions: Short dental implants seem to be an effective alternative treatment for the atrophic posterior ridge. The pooled data revealed that short dental implants have statistically less marginal bone loss and fewer postoperative complications when compared to standard-length dental implants with augmentation. However, there are no statistically significant differences in regard to implant failure.

Evidence-based systematic research had questioned historical concepts and abandoned preconceived dogmas based purely on mechanically based etiologies, transforming TMD into a complex musculoskeletal chronic pain model. Unfortunately, many of these old ideas persist in undergraduate education and the dental community. Revisiting the historical ...

ConclusionsBevacizumab may arrest both tumor progression and hearing loss in select NF2 patients presenting with VS lesions. However, a considerable proportion of patients are anticipated to experience serious adverse events; correspondingly, judicious use of bevacizumab for symptomatic management of VS in NF2 is recommended.

Harikrishna VarmaAbstractCommercially available titanium (Ti) having high mechanical strength and a low area of cross-section can be adequately exploited for minimally invasive dental implantation. Current directions in clinical dental implant therapy focus on endosseous dental implant surfaces with nanoscale topographies using easy and economical processing approaches. The present study describes the generation of a novel nanolayer nu...
