Management of Angle Mandible Fractures by 3D Rectangular Grid Plate: A Prospective Study
ConclusionThe results of the study suggest that 3D rectangular grid plate is a feasible alternative to conventional miniplate systems with good clinical outcome and fewer complications related to paresthesia, infection and hardware failure.
This study was aimed to estimate the length of the MIC in the interforaminal safe zone, to analyse its course in relation to the lingual and the buccal cortical plates of the mandible using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans and to relate the above findings to age, gender, dental status and Malaysian races.MethodsRetrospective analysis of 100 CBCT scans (n = 200) was performed on both sides of the mandible. Cross-sectional and panoramic images were reconstructed. The length of the MIC and the horizontal distances between the MIC and the buccal and the lingual cortical plates were measured at the three...
Conclusions: Given the fact that the percentage of erupted third molars by age 18 was found to be <50% on an average in this Ugandan population, we should reconsider the use of third molar eruption as a definitive tool for age estimation in this population.
Conclusion: The findings of the present study reveal that overweight influences early eruption of the mandibular third molar tooth, although there is no trend between socioeconomic status and the age of eruption of the mandibular third molar.
Fernando Fortes Picoli, Mayara Barbosa Viandelli Mundim-Picoli, Livia Graziele Rodrigues, Maria Alves Garcia Santos Silva, Ademir Franco, Rhonan Ferreira SilvaJournal of Forensic Dental Sciences 2019 11(1):51-55 Orthodontic records, such as photographs, radiographs, and dental casts, provide information useful for identification purposes because it may reveal important morphological, therapeutic, and pathological dental identifiers. Among these identifiers, the type and position of orthodontic appliances figure as distinctive tools for human identification. In this context, the present study aims to report an uncommon cas...
We report 13 cases (11 males/2 females) of SPM. The average age was 31 ± 0.85 years. The most common precipitating factor was asthma attack. The onset symptoms were mainly chest pain (11 cases). Synchronous pneumothorax was found in 5 cases and it was bilateral in 2 patients. The evolution was marked by the spontaneous resorption. SMP is an underrecognized cause of chest pain in young adults. Chest radiography is usually sufficient for the diagnosis, and further diagnostic procedures are generally not necessary. The prognosis is often favorable.
In conclusion, Chinese postmenopausal women with T2DM had a similar risk of incident VFs, but a significantly higher risk of incident non-VF, compared to women without DM. Higher BMI did not modify the effect of T2DM on risk of VFs, but it increased the association be tween T2DM and risk of non-VFs. LS BMDT-score was similarly and negatively associated with VF risk in T2DM and non-DM women and appear to be useful for clinical evaluation of VF risk.
ConclusionThere are numerous reports of the minimally invasive repair of CSD; however, it remains unknown in the obstetrical literature when interventions are required. Patients with minimal myometrial thinning and without evidence of serosal dehiscence may not require repair of the defect. More evidence is needed to observe obstetrical outcomes with or without repair.
Conclusions: These findings demonstrated the efficacy of interbody closed-box spacers for PLIF without the need to fill the spacer with autologous bone. However, the risk of non-union should be considered in elderly patients, especially intra-operatively and during the early postoperative stage. PMID: 31608613 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsThe carotid bifurcation is in close proximity to various calcified anatomical structures. This should be taken into account when diagnosing CCPs in panoramic radiographs (PRs). In the coronal view, CCPs and the cervical spine are often superimposed; thus, coronal images are not recommended for confirmation of putative carotid calcifications diagnosed on PRs.
The world’s longest human tooth extracted Swiss Dent J. 2019 Oct 14;129(10):817-820 Authors: Lukas M, Ehlers V, Becker T Abstract A patient with an abscess of the canine fossa starting from the tooth 13 turned up at the dental office. Such an abscess requires immediate and consistent surgical intervention to avoid potential lethal complications for the patient. The highlying swelling reaching the infraorbital area was quite impressive in this case. The panoramic radiograph that was taken (Fig. 1) revealed a canine of considerable radiographic length. The upper canines of the human have the greate...
