Alveolar repair after the use of piezosurgery in the removal of lower third molars: a prospective clinical, randomised, double-blind, split-mouth study

The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of piezosurgery for osteotomy and odontosection in the repair of the alveoli four months after exodontia. Fifteen young patients who needed third molars extracted were included. During the extractions, one of the teeth was included in the Piezo group, in which ultrasound motor tips were used in both procedures. The other tooth was removed with a conventional rotary instrument. The values of density of the repair regions of the right and left third molars were compared using digital panoramic radiographs. There were no significant differences (p > 0.05): piezo group mean (SD) 125.7 (15.4) and control group 126.7 (21.2). The bone density of the alveoli after extraction of the lower third molars with rotary instruments and surgical ultrasound was similar in both groups.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review discusses imaging modalities for fracture repair assessment, with an emphasis on pragmatic clinical and translational use, best practices for implementation, and challenges and opportunities for continuing research.Recent FindingsSemiquantitative radiographic union scoring remains the clinical gold standard, but has questionable reliability as a surrogate indicator of structural bone healing, particularly in early-stage, complex, or compromised healing scenarios. Alternatively, computed tomography (CT) scanning enables quantitative assessment of callus morphometry and mechanics through ...

​Subungual hematomas can be a terror. They are painful, ugly-looking, nefarious, and sometimes confusing. The ultimate goal is to drain the accumulated blood and relieve the painful pressure.The best intervention is easy and straightforward: Leave the nail in place, and evacuate the blood under it. (Hand Surg. 2012;17[1]:151; Am J Emerg Med. 2006;24[7]:875; Emerg Med J. 2003;20[1]:65, http://bit.ly/2mHV1cO.)

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.

The pain started after he checked another player into the boards while playing hockey. He had no head injury, loss of consciousness, or other trauma. He took 600 mg of ibuprofen with no relief, so he came to the ED.He had no past medical or surgical problems, and reported his pain as 4/10 over the clavicle region. His review of system was otherwise negative. The patient's vitals we...

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is defined as aneurysmal dilation of the abdominal aorta to 3 cm or greater. A high degree of morbidity and mortality is associated with AAA rupture, and imaging surveillance plays an essential role in mitigating the risk of rupture. Aneurysm size and growth rate are factors associated with the risk of rupture, thus surveillance imaging studies must be accurate and reproducible to characterize aneurysm size. Ultrasound, CT angiography, and MR angiography provide an accurate and reproducible assessment of size, while radiographs and aortography provide limited evaluation.
