Bone tissue amount related to upper incisors inclination.
Bone tissue amount related to upper incisors inclination. Angle Orthod. 2013 Jul 24; Authors: Nahás-Scocate AC, de Siqueira Brandão A, Patel MP, Lipiec-Ximenez ME, Chilvarquer I, do Valle-Corotti KM Abstract Abstract Objective: To evaluate the amount of buccal and lingual supporting bone tissue of 60 upper central incisors and the relationship with their inclination. Materials and Methods: Thirty healthy adult patients with no previous orthodontic treatment were evaluated using cone-beam computed tomography. Cross-sectional views were analyzed to check the amount of the bone tissue on the cervical (cervical buccal thickness/CBT; lingual/CLT), middle (middle buccal thickness/MBT; lingual/MLT), and apical regions (apical buccal thickness/ABT; lingual/ALT). The Pearson correlation, linear regression, and analysis of variance tests were used (P
CONCLUSION: Bone-anchored hearing devices can be implanted by prior imaging and using a template to identify the area of appropriate skull thickness to implant the abutment safely. PMID: 32079553 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: Our results indicate that insulin resistance is associated with plasma XOR activity and that relationship is independent of visceral adiposity and adiponectin level, suggesting that the development of insulin resistance resulting from increased visceral adiposity and/or reduced serum adiponectin contributes to increased uric acid production by stimulating XOR activity.

Publication date: Available online 23 February 2020Source: Composites Science and TechnologyAuthor(s): Elena Dilonardo, Michele Nacucchi, Fabio De Pascalis, Mauro Zarrelli, Cinzia GianniniAbstractThe aim of the current study is to propose a versatile, non-destructive inspection strategy to evaluate the structure of two different aircraft carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) -based composite configurations, which are widely used for structural elements, respectively layered composite and sandwich structure. X-ray computed tomography (CT) has been used as a flexible method for assessment of porosity levels in CFRP componen...
ConclusionsThe single-port approach has advantages as easier surgical planning and transition for combined and multi-quadrants surgeries: faster recovery, minimal postoperative pain and need for opioids, and excellent cosmetic outcome. We suggest that combined procedures should be performed only in high volume institutions by surgeons with vast experience in robotic surgery in selected patients.ResumenIntroducciónPresentar el primer caso de cirugía multicuadrante concomitante —prostatectomía radical robótica y nefrectomía parcial robótica izquierda— realizadas con t&eac...
Conclusions: The proposed web-based deep learning approach can be very practical and accurate for spine segmentation as a diagnostic method. PMID: 32082701 [PubMed]
ConclusionsComplete resection is vital for local control in pancreatic metastasis of UPS. Sites of recurrence are rare; hence, patients must be carefully followed up.
ConclusionsMost KS-ILD patients showed a tendency for chronic disease onset and long-term stabilization of pulmonary function.
ConclusionsCT angiography imaging findings have the potential to identify patients with head and neck cancer at higher risk of bleeding.
ConclusionReliable iodine quantification can be achieved using dual-source CT, but the result can be affected by patient size and dose rate. In large patients, biases may occur due to the beam-hardening and the photon-starvation effects, in which case higher dose rate and higher kVp are recommended to minimize these effects.
ConclusionHigh-quality CT and CT angiography can be achieved in ECMO patients of different ages and clinical issues considering the type of ECMO circulation, ECMO cannulation sites, preferred contrast phase and anatomy of interest. CT diagnoses affect the treatment of the patient.
