Limited evidence suggests that, in a deficient edentulous posterior maxilla, short implants could be an alternative to sinus augmentation with longer implants

ConclusionThe authors recommended short implants whenever the height of available bone permits optimum implant placement. The authors concluded that both treatment options are considered viable clinically and radiographically. However, short implants have shown reduced postoperative discomfort, minimal invasiveness, and reduced cost.

We report this case on a patient who had asymptomatic capsule retention for 12 months and experienced natural elimination with medication. Patient concerns: A 21-year-old woman presented to the hospital with chronic abdominal pain and persistent diarrhea for 2 years. Diagnoses: The patient was diagnosed with small bowel Crohn disease using VCE, and radiography revealed capsule retention. Intervention: Symptoms of obstruction were not distinctive, it was decided to increase the dosages of azathioprine and infliximab to 50 and 500 mg (10 mg/kg), at 5 months after VCE. And at month 11 of capsule retention, she wa...

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 ...

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...

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, ...
