CONCLUSION: Clinical complications of zygomatic implants are acceptable, and their survival rates are similar to those of endosteal implants. Zygomatic implants can contribute to prosthetic rehabilitation. PMID: 32724927 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: Recurrent otitis media in children was related to the onset of SSNHL.
CONCLUSIONS: Two-thirds of the patients with OS caused by dental caries and periapical abscess were cured with dental treatment and medical management without ESS. We recommend dental treatment and medical management first in OS caused by dental caries and periapical abscess. However, we recommend early ESS in patients with smoking habits and severe CT findings of the sinus. PMID: 32722916 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Silent sinus syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by ipsilateral enophthalmos and hypoglobus caused by collapse of the orbital floor in the presence of asymptomatic chronic maxillary sinusitis. The basic principles in the management are to address the diseased sinus and reconstruct the orbit concurrently or separately. Failure to accurately restore the orbit volume can have significant consequences on the patient. In this paper, we provide an update on current practices and highlight our experience of using computer-assisted planning and patient specific implant in managing this syndrome.
Nasogastric and orogastric tubes (NG/OGT) are commonly used in emergency and critical care settings, with indications including medicinal administration, gastric decompression, and enteral feeding. Previous studies have highlighted a variety of complications associated with tube placement. These range from minor occurrences such as nose bleeds and sinusitis, to more severe cases highlighting tracheobronchial perforation, tube knotting, asphyxia, pulmonary aspiration, pneumothorax, and even intracranial insertion.
CONCLUSION: The LOD values were found to be 3.95, 0.19, 0.92 and 0.96 µg mL-1 for EPD HCl, NPZ HCl, ANT HCl, and CLO in spectrophotometric method, respectively. The linear ranges in the RP-HPLC method were 8.2-24.36 µg mL-1, 0.083 - 0.75 µg/mL, 2.01-7.5 µg mL-1 and 2.89 - 24.4 µg mL-1 for EPD HCl, NPZ HCl, ANT HCl, and CLO, respectively. The LOD values in the validation studies were 2.7, 0.025, 0.66 and 0.86 µg mL-1 for EPD HCl, NPZ HCl, ANT HCl, and CLO in RP-HPLC method respectively. The results of the spectrophotometric and chromatographic methods were compared and no differences were...
Abstract One of the most effective approaches for treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis is the use of hydrogel scaffolds with the sustained release of a given required drug. With this in mind, first, we synthesized and characterized poly (lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) micro and nano particles loaded with dexamethasone (DEX). We observed a 7-day release of DEX from nanoparticles, while the microparticles showed a 22-day release profile. Due to their slower rate of release, the PLGA microparticles loaded with DEX (PLGADEX microparticles) were specifically chosen for this study. As a second step, chitosan/polyvinylpyrro...
ConclusionPatients with CRS and immunodeficiency likely benefit from ESS based on the available evidence. Data supporting medical therapy in this targeted population is limited overall, but there may be a potential role for immunoglobulin therapy in patients with PID and CRS.
ConclusionWe present an internally validated diagnostic tool to stratify the risk for AIFS. The estimated risk may help determine which patients can be observed with serial nasal endoscopy, which ones could be biopsied, and which ones would benefit from immediate surgical intervention.
