Labio-lingual root control of lower anterior teeth and canines obtained by active and passive self-ligating brackets.

Conclusions: A significant proclination was seen for the mandibular front teeth; the claimed third-order torque control of SL systems could not be demonstrated. Therefore, a considerable play between the wire and the brackets could be hypothesized, even more in relation to the passive than the active SL brackets.

ConclusionThe surgical team is responsible for preventing this event by careful inspection of the surgical site using all the available methods and technology. Technology increases the safety but doesn’t accurately prevent the accidents. All causative human and technical factors must be addressed carefully.

Conclusion: This and 12 other cases in the literature focus on intracranial cavernous angiomas that could have been readily misdiagnosed as tumors. It confirms why obtaining appropriate preoperative MR and CT studies, followed by surgical intervention, is essential to confirm the correct underlying pathology and appropriately and optimally treat the patient.

We present the case of a 25-year-old woman admitted due to behavioral disorders, generalized paresthesiasand acute respiratory deterioration compatible with a respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) requiring orotracheal intubation, mechanical ventilation and empirical initiation of antibiotic and antiviral therapy. Chest tomography showed pneumomediastinum and changes suggestive of pulmonary infection. In the presence of neurological symptoms, a central nervous system (CNS) infection was suspected and the cerebrospinal fluid showed no pleocytosis, hiperproteinorrachy without glucose consumption; cranial CT scan was normal. D...

The majority of doctors will tell you that there is nothing you can do to reverse fatty liver and that health problems such as cirrhosis and liver failure may be in your future that they will address with the awful “solution” of liver transplant. The truth is the opposite: fatty liver is easily and readily reversible in virtually everybody, provided you take action before irreversible changes take place and are given the right information and tools. In this video, I discuss the three basic phenomena that drive fat deposition, liver damage, and inflammation that lead to this condition: Carbohydrate consumption ...

Here, we report a case of pulmonary infection due to A. fusispora in a 59-year-old male who presented with productive cough and gradually progressive dyspnoea for 20 days. He had a past history of pulmonary tuberculosis and was a known case of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for past five years. He was diagnosed with mixed connective tissue disease and had been receivin...

A 44-year-old woman presented with lumbar pain (visual analog scale [VAS]  = 9) secondary to adrenocortical carcinoma sclerotic L4-vertebral metastasis. The positron emission tomography-computed tomography hypermetabolic lesion (Fig 1a,d) was unresponsive to radiotherapy or chemotherapy. She refused surgery. Following general anesthesia and aseptic preparation, 2 power d rill-mounted (Aesculap, Center Valley, Pennsylvania) k-wires were inserted in each vertebral pedicle with lateromedial opposite directions, resulting in crossed wires.
