The use of retraction paste to simplify impression and cementation of ceramic veneers and crowns: 3-year follow-up report

The objective of this paper was to present a clinical case of ceramic veneers and crowns in which a retraction paste was used for gingival displacement during both the impression and cementation stages, with 3 years of follow-up. Treatment planning consisted of the replacement of preexisting crowns and ceramic veneers on the anterior teeth. After finishing the preparations, gingival displacement with Astringent Retraction Paste was performed without anesthesia or the use of cords and the impression was taken. Before cementation of the crowns and veneers, the Astringent Retraction Paste was applied. Avoiding the use of cords during cementation prevented trauma. The soft tissue margins remained stable and healthy after a period of 3 years. It can be concluded that retraction pastes could be indicated for displacement of soft tissue when preparation margins are at the gingival level or slightly intrasulcular prior to impressions, restoration cementations, direct restorations, and before relining provisional restorations. Clinical significance: The impression appointment can be traumatic to some patients. The use of cords for gingival displacement usually requires local anesthesia and is time consuming. Retraction astringent pastes instead of cords seems to be a good option for some cases in gingival tissue displacement.

I've read that surgeons often play music in the OR, but not sure if this is the norm or exception. Who chooses the music? Does the anesthesiologist have veto power? Thanks for anyone's experience with this. (I'm a med student &rocker considering anesthesiology.)

ConclusionsIn healthy, normotensive parturients undergoing emergency cesarean delivery, maternal hyperuricemia is associated with lower incidence of post-spinal hypotension and reduced need of vasopressors. Elevated serum uric acid levels may also be associated with decreased uterine tone, necessitating greater requirement of supplemental uterotonics. However, further prospective trials are needed to strongly establish this association.

We describe a rat thermal burn model that involves: anaesthesia, chronic catheterisation, skin preparation, baseline hemodynamic and physiological monitoring, and a quantifiable method to reproduce a severe full-thickness burns injury affecting ∼30% percent of the total body surface area (%TBSA). Following a 15 min post-burn period, treatment commences with an acute monitoring phase lasting up to 8 hours, which can be modified according to individual protocols. This model reflects the clinical continuum-of-care from point-of injury, a 15 min ambulance response time, a 60 min prehospital phas...

Hi guys, I was wondering what my chances of matching anesthesia with a USMLE step 1 score of 204, assuming I increase my step 2 score significantly? I am a DO student. How many programs do I need to apply to and will I be stuck in the middle of no where? I wanted to go to the west or east coast. Also interested in IM and possibly psychiatry.

MizubutiAbstractProphylactic administration of a vasopressor to mitigate the hypotensive effect of propofol (and/or other co-induction agents) during sedation/anesthesia immediately prior to tracheal intubation in frail patients in the intensive care unit and emergency and operating rooms appears to be not an uncommon practice. We submit that this practice is unnecessary and potentially harmful. Despite restoring the blood pressure, phenylephrine, for instance, may have an additive or synergistic effec...
