Carestream Dental Announces New eCommerce Website
ByCarestream Dental| September 13, 2019ATLANTA —Digital technology has benefited dentistry in many ways—more accurate digital impressions, less radiation during imaging, the efficiency of a paperless practice—but there’s one aspect of digital that we take for granted in our daily lives that Carestream Dental is pleased to add to the modern practice’s workflow: Online shopping. The company’s website now features an eCommerce section that will allow customers in the U.S. to purchase select products and services that are available online.“As an industry leader, Carestream Dental actively seeks ways to simplify technology and day-to-day operations in digital dentistry,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, Carestream Dental, said. “Now, we’re pleased to offer customers the option to order on their time in a way that ’s already familiar to them.” Carestream Dental understands that eCommerce is increasingly becoming the preferred method of shopping among consumers.

We present the case of a girl who underwent VPH for hemimegalencephaly in early infancy. Postoperatively, she developed unexpected seizures of mesio-temporal origin. Stereo-EEG provided arguments for an amygdalar origin. High-resolution MRI with tractography confirmed the presence of the amygdalo-fugal pathway to be responsible of epileptic discharges propagation. She became seizure-free after temporal resection.
ConclusionWe successfully utilized biportal endoscopy to decompress the combined lumbar lateral recess, foraminal, and extraforaminal lesions using a contralateral sublaminar approach.
We describe a patient with a long history of seizures and a remote status epilepticus event. On magnetic resonance imaging, a presumed left temporal lobe tumor was observed. On neurosurgical consultation, the lesion was identified as a chronic mesial temporal lobe herniation. The patient lacked history that would suggest risk of cerebral herniation. Accurately identifying the patient ’s chronic temporal lobe herniation radiographically likely saved this patient from unnecessary surgery or biopsy and allowed the patient to receive appropriate conservative care.
ConclusionsThe study represents the much-needed, large-volume, epidemiological profile of HI from an LMIC, highlighting the suboptimal utilization of peripheral healthcare systems. Strengthening and integrating these facilities with the tertiary centers in a hub and enhanced spoke model, task sharing design, and efficient back-referrals promise effective neurotrauma care while avoiding overburden in the tertiary centers. Better implementation of road safety laws also has the potential to reduce the burden of HI.
