Monitoring the state of oral health of a patient with cerebral paralysis: clinical case report

This case report describes a 12-year-old child diagnosed with cerebral palsy who was attended in the dental service in October 2012 with a chief complaint of caries. The dental history revealed that the child had difficulty in opening his mouth, chewing, and swallowing. In the intraoral examination, the patient had an atretic palate, fibrous gingiva, gingival bleeding, malocclusion, and presence of calculus in the supra and subgingival regions and presented epilepsy and low weight. In the complementary examinations, blood pressure was checked and the blood count was read.

ConclusionsPillar suture combined with tonsillectomy may reduce postoperative bleeding incidence despite increasing pillar edema in pediatric tonsillectomy. Postoperative pain-relief, palatal hematoma, palatal discomfort sensation, site infection, and velopharyngeal insufficiency were not significantly altered compared to tonsillectomy alone. However, further studies are needed to corroborate the results of this study.ResumoIntroduçãoDiversas técnicas cirúrgicas têm sido utilizadas na tonsilectomia no intuito de reduzir complicações.ObjetivosAvaliar os efeitos da sutura dos p...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Geoff FrawleyAbstractAdvances in neonatal medicine have progressively increased the survival of premature infants. Increased survival has, however, come at the cost of increased number of infants with prematurity related complications. This is represented by high rates of respiratory distress syndrome, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, necrotising enterocolitis, sepsis, periventricular leukomalacia, intraventricular haemorrhage, cerebral palsy, hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy and visual and hearing problems in survivors....

Conclusion: It may be employed either alone or in combination with cryotherapy, existing chemotherapy, bypass surgery or radiations to achieve the optimal results in these patients. Nevertheless, there is a need to formulate a uniform dose and procedure to achieve homogeneity and develop references for clinical practices. PMID: 31977258 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Ashour AS, Dey N, Mohamed WS, Tromp JG, Sherratt RS, Shi F, Moraru L Abstract Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE) is a highly promising technology for gastrointestinal (GI) tract abnormality diagnosis. However, low image resolution and low frame rates are challenging issues in WCE. In addition, the relevant frames containing the features of interest for accurate diagnosis only constitute 1% of the complete video information. For these reasons, analyzing the WCE videos is still a time consuming and laborious examination for the gastroenterologists, which reduces WCE system usability. This leads to the emergent...

Adams, Akshay LakraABSTRACTHip joint subluxation and dislocations are very common in cerebral palsy (CP) patients and are directly related to the degree of spasticity. Hip dislocation and subluxation leads to hip pain and difficulty in hygiene maintenance by caregiver. Most cases require some sort of surgical intervention to improve the quality of life in these patients. For many years’ pelvic and proximal femoral osteotomies with soft tissue releases was the main stay of treatment for these hips in CP patients. Hip ...

ConclusionsThis is the largest series to date reporting>30-day follow-up for patients undergoing venous ablation procedures while receiving anticoagulation and the longest follow-up reported of any series. Durability, safety, and efficacy of vein ablation in patients receiving anticoagulation are comparable to those in control patients. Anticoagulation should not be considered a contraindication to endothermal ablation of the GSV or SSV for symptomatic venous reflux.
