CONCLUSION: Although the limited sample size limits comparisons to larger studies, this initial finding suggests that TM implants may be suitable for immediate placement into failed implant sites. PMID: 31107931 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Gingival enlargement, although frequently encountered in clinical settings, is rarely associated with systemic diseases or syndromes. Among the diverse pathological conditions of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1), minor manifestations in the orofacial region are occasionally overlooked. Herein, the authors present an unusual case of gingival neurofibroma in a patient with NF-1 associated with characteristic osseous defects in the alveolus in the long-term course of 17 years from the first examination. A 5-year-old boy with NF-1 was referred for the evaluation of gingival enlargement in the posterior left maxilla. An incisal...

Shikha Sharma, Ashita Uppoor, Dilip Gopinath Naik, Sayantan KarmakarJournal of Indian Society of Periodontology 2019 23(1):73-76 In the treatment of Class II furcation defects, guided tissue regeneration (GTR) in combination with bone grafts has provided better treatment outcomes in comparison to GTR alone. A 48-year-old male patient reported with a chief complaint of pain and bleeding in the right lower back teeth area from 3 months. On clinical and radiographic evaluation, a Class II buccal furcation defect was detected in tooth #46. A bidirectionally positioned flap (BPF) technique in combination with bone graft was do...

edil;e AH Abstract Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are among the rare tumors of gastrointestinal (GI) tract. GISTs occur respectively in the stomach, small intestines, colon and rectum, omentum and mesentery, esophagus, retroperitoneal space, and abdominal cavity. However, they may occur anywhere along the GI tract. Typically, these tumors generally do not cause symptoms; however symptomatic patients may show stomach pain, GI bleeding, and palpable abdominal masses. These patients usually undergo surgery for obstruction symptoms or some other diagnosis. Our patient was admitted to the emergency department ...

​Rectal exams are difficult for the patient and require true expertise. You cannot expect to complete a good rectal exam or remove a rectal foreign body without the correct information, good bedside relationship, and the right equipment.Ensuring your patient has confidence in your ability is vital. Take the time to get to know what equipment is available in your ED. It's important to know what to do before a patient comes to your department with a rectal complaint.Most departments have a box dedicated to the anoscope. It typically will have two handles for light sources and two sizes of obturators with casing. The items ...

ABSTRACT Anatomical variations of mandibular canal have rarely been reported in the literature. The aim of this paper is to present three clinical cases of bifid mandibular canal diagnosed with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) as well as discuss its clinical implications. The first case is very interesting due to its anatomic variation verified in a panoramic radiograph during orthodontic planning, mimicking an odontogenic tumor. The second and the third cases were identified during tomographic evaluation for third molar exodontia. The diagnosis of bifid canals is extremely relevant in order to avoid complications duri...

Conclusion: Our findings demonstrate poor adherence to guidance. Discharge planning, advice and follow-up was inadequate for most episodes. A high rate of surgical intervention was seen. Promotion of guidelines awareness is critical for improving patient outcomes.

AbstractThe pathogenesis of acute ischaemic colitis depends on two different forms of vascular colonic insult: occlusive injury and non-occlusive injury. Clinically, ischaemic colitis may be classified as two major forms: mild (non-gangrenous) and acute fulminant (gangrenous). The classic presentation is abdominal pain, diarrhoea and/or rectal bleeding, but it is not specific and highly variable and so the diagnosis usually depends on clinical suspicion and is supported by serologic and colonoscopic findings. Imaging methods have their role in diagnosing IC. While plain radiography and ultrasound can orient the diagnosis, ...

Authors: Zhang T, Huang S, Xu S, Li H, He X, Zhang F Abstract The aim of the present study was to assess the clinical outcomes of arthroscopic synovectomy in adolescent or young adult patients with advanced haemophilic arthropathy. From January 2009-January 2012, clinical data from 11 adolescent or young adult patients with advanced haemophilic arthropathy who were treated with arthroscopic synovectomy were retrospectively collected. The mean follow-up period was 71.91±5.28 months. The evaluated indicators included frequency of joint bleeding, range of motion (ROM), X-ray staging, hospital for special surger...

This study found a "statistically significant difference during initial hours after fracture reduction and fixation so that pain intensity was less in elderly patients under hematoma block than patients who underwent general anesthesia in one and six hours after surgery." Most importantly, patients in the hematoma block group required less narcotic pain medication compared with the general surgery population.Experienced providers often know exactly where to inject anesthesia for hematoma blocks. Ultrasound-guided injection techniques, however, prove to be more accurate. Using ultrasound to identify the hematoma a...
