Horizontal ridge augmentation using xenogenous bone graft —systematic review
ConclusionsAlthough the autogenous bone graft remains as the gold standard for alveolar reconstruction, this review suggests that xenogenous bone graft is a feasible alternative for horizontal bone augmentation.
In conclusion, the present study offered evidence of a protective effect of Y‑27632 administration on cerebral ischemia/reperfusion induced behavioral and hippocampal damage by activating astrocytes and microglia. PMID: 31432130 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions:From the results, we suggest that thein situ gelling ALG/HA hydrogel containing vancomycin and BMP-2 can be a feasible therapeutic tool to treat osteomyelitis.
CONCLUSIONS The D-ADM demonstrated the ability to rapidly reduce the size of large, complex DFUs with exposed bone. Some wounds did not completely heal by 16 weeks; however, the significant reduction in size suggests that these large, complex wounds may heal if given more time.
We report a case in which a quadricuspid pulmonary valve was used for the Ross operation in a young male patient. The patient demonstrated severe pulmonary autograft regurgitation due to a neosinus of Valsalva aneurysm 16 years after the primary operation. Preservation of the quadricuspid pulmonary autograft was performed by the David procedure, resulting in a competent valve function.
In this study, a BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 resulted in higher MAT failure rates. Nonobese patients had better knee functional results compared with obese individuals.

ConclusionsOur experience suggests that multimodality therapy that includes rituximab is feasible and may prevent progression of antibody-mediated rejection after lung transplantation in selected patients.
ConclusionBased on the results of the present study the hypothesis can be established that there also might be a dose-dependent effect of ZOL on the healing of bone grafts in humans. This hypothesis has to be verified or rejected in clinical trials.

Bioengineers and dentists from the UCLA School of Dentistry have developed a new hydrogel that is more porous and effective in promoting tissue repair and regeneration compared to hydrogels that are currently available. Once injected in a mouse model, the new hydrogel is shown to induce migration of naturally occurring stem cells to better promote bone healing. Current experimental applications using hydrogels and stem cells introduced into the body or expensive biological agents can come with negative side effects.The findings, published online in the journal Nature Communications, suggest that in the near future th...
