Correlation Between Sex and Facial Soft Tissue Characteristics Among Young Saudi Patients with Various Orthodontic Skeletal Malocclusions.

Correlation Between Sex and Facial Soft Tissue Characteristics Among Young Saudi Patients with Various Orthodontic Skeletal Malocclusions. Med Sci Monit. 2020 Feb 26;26:e919771 Authors: Ajwa N, Alkhars FA, AlMubarak FH, Aldajani H, AlAli NM, Alhanabbi AH, Alsulaiman SA, Divakar DD Abstract BACKGROUND There is a debate over the influence of sex on facial soft tissue physiognomies. Therefore, the present study used teleradiographs to assess and compare the soft tissue physiognomies between males and females in a sample from Saudi Arabia who have various orthodontic malocclusions. MATERIAL AND METHODS We obtained 221 lateral cephalometric radiographs taken from orthodontic clinics of patients ages 16-26 years (114 males and 107 females) living in the central and eastern regions of Saudi Arabia. OnyxCeph3TM digital software was used to analyze the dentoskeletal classification of the sample as class I (n=84), class II division 1 (n=42), class II division 2 (n=33), and class III (n=62). Burstone analysis of 6 linear measurements for facial soft tissue thickness (FSTT) was used. We used descriptive analysis and the independent-samples t test using SPSS version 25 for Windows (Chicago, IL) with p

ConclusionsDelayed application of BMP-2 2  weeks after surgery did not show any advantage over immediate application of BMP-2 in terms of new bone formation.Clinical relevanceThis study suggests that it might be better to apply BMP-2 immediately in alveolar ridge preservation, instead of delayed application, in order to enhance new bone formation.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo offer a fresh perspective on the evolving management of salivary gland disease by introducing a sequence of articles organized by a classification system grouping disorders by etiology.Recent FindingsSialendoscopy has been successful in improving the management of salivary gland disease. This endoscopic approach to imaging and instrumentation of the salivary duct system has been a focal point of recent discussion. The overall management of salivary pain and swelling as well as xerostomia and sialorrhea has improved through additional treatment options including increased application non-surgical...

ConclusionsBioabsorbable Mg and titanium screws had similar therapeutic efficacy in MM fracture fixation regarding functional and radiological outcomes. However, the rate of implant removal was higher with titanium screws. Bioabsorbable Mg screws may be a favorable fixation option since secondary implant removal procedures can be prevented.Level of evidenceLevel IV, Retrospective case series.

AbstractBackgroundIliosacral screw fixation is safe and effective but can be complicated by loss of fixation, particularly in patients with osteopenic bone. Sacral morphology dictates where iliosacral screws may be placed when stabilizing pelvic ring injuries. In dysmorphic sacra, the safe osseous corridor of the upper sacral segment (S1) is smaller and lacks a transsacral corridor, increasing the need for fixation in the second sacral segment (S2). Previous evidence suggests that S2 is less dense than S1. The aim of this cross-sectional study is to further evaluate bone mineral density (BMD) of the S1 and S2 iliosacral os...

ConclusionsThe results of the current study demonstrate a 5% incidence of IFF when using the LINK SP-CL® femoral stem in THA. The radiographic morphology of the proximal femur was an important predictor of IFF and should be assessed when using SP-CL®.Level of evidenceLevel 4.

AbstractOsteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a heterogeneous connective tissue disorder characterized by repeated fractures and skeletal disorders. At present, bisphosphonate (BP) therapy is the gold standard for OI treatment. The present retrospective study evaluated the effect of BP therapy on tooth development and eruption of permanent teeth in a cohort of children receiving pamidronate. Three groups were studied: patients with OI who were treated with BPs (n = 45), patients with OI who were not treated with BPs (n = 117), and age- and gender-matched healthy controls (n = 121). Denta...
