A randomized split mouth clinical study to compare the clinical outcomes of subepithelial connective graft and acellular dermal matrix in Miller & #39;s Class I recession coverage therapy
Conclusion: From the outcome of the current study, we can conclude that ADM is an efficient substitute for SCTG for treating Miller's Class I GR. However, additional studies with greater number of samples and lengthier follow-up periods are necessary to validate the present inference. (Source: Journal of Indian Society of Periodontology)

Homeless in Spain: An Analysis Based on Multidimensional Indicators of Deprivation
AbstractThis paper analyses the situation of the homeless in Spain before and during the Great Recession, using a multidimensional approach based on the construction of a new indicator of their deprivations, inspired by a counting approach mainly developed for poverty analysis. This indicator considers dimensions related to health and social contacts, in addition to purely economic ones. Using data from 2005 and 2012, the static analysis is complemented with a study of the changes experienced by the homeless before and during the Great Recession and how some sociodemographic aspects are related to their probability of bein...

One-Year Outcomes of a Piscine Soft Tissue Alternative Used in Mucogingival Procedures: A Clinical Case Series.
Authors: Dragan IF, Garcia H AA, Malik R, Karimbux NY Abstract The free gingival graft (FGG) has been used predictably for gingival procedures aimed to increase the width of keratinized tissue (KT). Several soft tissue alternatives, such as xenografts and allografts, have been studied and proven to be successful with varying degrees. This pilot clinical case series evaluated the efficacy, safety, and initial clinical outcomes (measuring KT width) of a piscine xenograft material (Omega3 Wound, Kerecis) compared to the FGG (harvested from the patient palate) in correcting mucogingival deformities around teeth.

Immediate Tooth Replacement Therapy in Postextraction Sockets: A Comparative Prospective Study on the Effect of Variable Platform-Switched Subcrestal Angle Correction Implants.
Authors: Chu SJ, Saito H, Östman PO, Levin BP, Reynolds MA, Tarnow DP Abstract Immediate tooth replacement therapy (ITRT), ie, immediate implant placement and provisional restoration in postextraction sockets, has been shown to achieve favorable outcomes in reference to soft tissue stability and esthetics. However, avoiding socket perforation with uniaxial implants in the anterior maxilla can be challenging due to the inherent anatomy.

Effect of unilateral vertical transposition of the horizontal rectus muscles on vertical strabismus.
CONCLUSIONS: Vertical transposition of the horizontal rectus muscles in the same direction allows for correction of vertical strabismus. This procedure may be performed during primarily horizontal strabismus surgery, without operating on an additional extraocular muscle. The transposition distance correlates with the surgical effect but predictability of the effect is limited.

Gastrocnemius Recession as an Alternative to Midfoot Arthrodesis for Painful Midfoot Arthritis
Arthrodesis has been described as the gold standard of treatment for midfoot degenerative joint disease (DJD) but has also been associated with nonunion, increased tourniquet times, technical difficulty, and a long postoperative non-weightbearing period. Although it is postulated that a contracted gastrocnemius may cause midfoot pain, there are no reports of using the procedure as a primary treatment for midfoot DJD. The purpose of this study was to determine whether gastrocnemius recession resolved midfoot pain from osteoarthritis and eliminated the need for midfoot arthrodesis.

Despite the greatly damaging impact of the opioid crisis over 2015 to 2017 resulting in a decrease in life expectancy over these three years, the long-term increases in average GDP per capita from 1999 to 2018 managed to save lives on average (i.e., age-adjusted mortality ...
