Endodontic management of an autotransplanted mandibular third molar: A simplified approach.

CONCLUSIONS AND PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: If appropriate sterility of the working field is maintained during surgery and a tight apical seal is achieved during the extraoral treatment, orthograde endodontic treatment should be delayed or avoided. PMID: 31937403 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Background: Non-dipper blood pressure (NDBP) is one of the important causes of hypertension-related target organ damage and future cardiovascular events. Currently, there is no practical tool to predict NDBP pattern. Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between aortic arch calcification (AAC) on chest radiography and NDBP pattern. Methods: All patients referred for ambulatory BP monitoring test were approached for the study participation. NDBP was defined as the reduction of ≤ 10% in nighttime systolic BP as compared to the daytime values. AAC was evaluated with chest radiograph...

Authors: Spang RC, Getgood A, Strickland SM, Amendola AN, Gomoll AH Abstract This review focuses on the management of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction patients when other concomitant pathology may need to be addressed at the time of surgery. Given the role of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus in preventing osteoarthritis progression and contributing to knee stability, medial meniscus repair should always be considered when performing ACL reconstruction. Meniscal transplant may also be appropriate in select patients with normal knee alignment and absent of cartilage abnormalities in the compar...

ConclusionACL reconstruction provides satisfactory knee stability. The risk of subsequent osteoarthritis depends chiefly on the status of the menisci. Residual laxity is also associated with the development of osteoarthritis.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective cohort study.

Abstract Pneumocystis jiroveci remains an important fungal pathogen in a broad range of immunocompromised hosts. The natural reservoir of infection remains unknown. Pneumocystis jiroveci Pneumonia (PJP) develops via airborne transmission or reactivation of inadequately treated infection. Nosocomial clusters of infection have been described among immunocompromised hosts. Subclinical infection or colonization may occur. Pneumocystis pneumonia occurs most often within 6 months of organ transplantation and with intensified or prolonged immunosuppression, notably with corticosteroids. Infection is also common during ne...

Additional tools for risk-stratification of chronic graft vs. host disease (cGVHD) may enhance the established NIH consensus-based severity score. Radiographic body composition metrics arising from standardly performed CT-scans have previously shown significant association with treatment complications in other cancer populations. We aimed to characterize skeletal muscle (SM) and adiposity in cGVHD patients to discern potential association with subsequent mortality.

Background: Osteochondral autologous transplantation surgery (OATS) has been advocated for unstable osetochondritis dissecans (OCD) lesions of the adolescent capitellum, though limited information is available regarding clinical and radiographic results in North American patients. We hypothesize that single-plug OATS is safe and effective in alleviating pain and restoring function in unstable OCD. Methods: Twenty-eight patients with unstable OCD treated with single-plug OATS were evaluated. Mean age at surgery was 14.2 years; there were 14 males. Etiology of OCD was presumed to be sports participation, including baseb...

Conclusions. Selective patients outside of traditional size criteria can be effectively transplanted with equivalent survival to patients with smaller tumors, even when pathologic tumor burden is considered. Tumor stability over time can be used to help select patients for transplantation.

ConclusionsGVAX/Cy plus pembrolizumab failed to meet its primary objective in MMRp CRC. Biochemical responses were observed in a subset of patients and have not previously been observed with pembrolizumab monotherapy in MMRp CRC, indicating that GVAX may modulate the antitumor immune response.

Metastatic calcinosis (MC) is a pathologic process that results from the deposition of calcified product in normal tissues as result of hyperphosphatemia with or without concomitant hypercalcemia. A 52-year-old man with a history of renal transplantation was evaluated for an asymptomatic nodule on the dorsal surface of the tongue. On intraoral examination, an undefined, firm, sessile, irregular and yellowish surface nodule, measuring 10  × 8 × 4 mm was observed. Panoramic radiograph showed radiopaque areas adjacent to the hyoid bone and paired linear areas of calcification next to the mandibular angle.
