Effects of the inc & #305;s & #305;on preference & #305;n acetabular surgery on the postoperat & #305;ve funct & #305;onal outcomes
Conclusion: Incision type and number of incisions must be determined based on the fracture type and fracture localization for better functional outcomes. The factors that have the most effects on the functional outcomes are the type and the localization. In associated fractures, performing multiple incisions reduces the time for full weight bearing and enables patients to return to their daily routine early but have no effect on the functional outcomes.

Implant treatment presumes that implants are placed in bone, without any contact with root. At ankylosed teeth, complete root removal is often invasive; subsequently, the sites require additional augmentation procedures to complete the treatment. Different techniques can be used for removal of these residual root fragments. To our knowledge, there are no study in the literature to provide the extraction of the root fragment using bone lid tech...
