A novel success scale for evaluating alveolar cleft repair using cone-beam computed tomography

ConclusionsThe novel success scale for evaluating alveolar cleft repair using CBCT takes into consideration all dimensions of the bony bridge. Future application is necessary for validation of its potential value.

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 ...

Authors: Lima LP, Meira HC, Amaral TMP, Caldeira PC, Abdo EN, Brasileiro CB Abstract The present study reports a case of a mandibular buccal bifurcation cyst (MBBC) associated with a partially erupted mandibular first molar. The intraoral examination revealed vestibular swelling in the right mandibular permanent first molar region. Panoramic radiography and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) showed a well-delimited radiolucent image involving the roots and part of the crown of the right mandibular permanent first molar with bulging and areas of buccal cortical bone resorption. An incisional biopsy was performed a...

Summary: The patient is a 31-year-old woman with a history of prior resection of a presumed keloid scar around her Pfannenstiel incision found to be endometrial tissue on final pathology. She presented 5 years later with recurrence of pain and a mass associated with menses despite maximal medical therapy for endometriosis. Computed tomography of her abdomen and pelvis demonstrated an infiltrative soft tissue mass measuring 8.8 cm × 4.0 cm. Surgical oncology conducted an en bloc resection of the mass and obstetrics and gynecology performed a concomitant total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectom...

Conclusions: In addition to an increase in total orbital volume, orbital fat loss occurs with late post-traumatic enophthalmos due to unrepaired fractures. This suggests correction of bony change alone may be insufficient in some cases, and the use of custom implants may compensate for fat atrophy. PMID: 31726012 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Lateral patellofemoral (PF) soft tissue abnormalities range from excessive lateral PF tightness (lateral patellar compression syndrome, lateral patellar instability and arthritis), to excessive laxity (iatrogenic lateral PF soft tissue insufficiency postlateral release). The lateral soft tissue complex is composed of the iliotibial band extension to the patella, the vastus lateralis tendon, the lateral PF ligament, lateral patellotibial ligament, and lateral patellomeniscal ligament, with intimate connections between those structures. To identify lateral retinaculum tightness or insufficiency the most important tests are t...

ConclusionSatisfactory active IR1 correlated with good passive IR1. IR1 was better in thin individuals who had non-concentric gleno-humeral osteoarthritis. Inferior glenosphere overhang of 6 mm or more was associated with a greater range of IR.Level of evidenceIV, prospective observational cohort study.

Abstract Femoroacetabular impingement is a cause of hip pain in young adults as a result of premature dynamic contact between the femur and acetabulum that occurs within the physiological range of hip motion. Diagnosis is made by patient history, clinical examination and radiographic findings. Cross-sectional imaging with computed tomography and magnetic resonance arthrography may be necessary in selected patients. Femoroacetabular impingement can be treated non-operatively with physiotherapist-led conservative care including analgesia and intra-articular steroid injections. Arthroscopic hip surgery aiming to rest...
