Canal transportation caused by one single-file and two multiple-file rotary systems: A comparative study using cone-beam computed tomography
ConclusionNo significant difference exists among different rotary systems in the amount of canal transportation caused in the middle and apical third of the mesio-buccal canal in mandibular first molars. Although all rotary files caused some degrees of canal transportation, the rotary single-file instrument caused significantly greater canal transportation than the multiple-file sequences in the coronal third.

Stroke Triage: EMS needs a diagnostic tool that goes beyond a simple history & physical exam
As a young EMT and paramedic, I had relatively little education about acute myocardial infarctions. In the age of the 3-lead ECG, education was largely focused on arrhythmia detection and how to differentiate heart blocks, tachycardia and bradycardia. Detection of heart attack was largely based upon history and physical exam findings. Three decades later, the thought of relying on a physical exam to diagnose a ST- elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is hard to imagine. Although we’ve made remarkable progress in the prehospital detection of STEMI, we’ve made significantly less progress in the diagnosis of ac...
