INTRODUCTION: The assignment for this working group was to update the existing knowledge regarding factors considered being of special relevance for the patient undergoing implant therapy. This included areas where conflicting opinions exists since long or recently has been expressed, like the role of antibiotic prophylaxis in dental implant surgery and peri-implantitis. Also areas with growing interest and concern such as patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and health-economy was included in this review...

The aim of this narrative review was to critically evaluate in vitro studies assessing the efficacy of lasers in the bacterial decontamination of titanium implant surfaces. The MEDLINE, Web of Knowledge and Embase electronic databases were used to search for articles relating to the use of lasers in the bacterial decontamination of titanium specimen surfaces using predetermined search statements. Clinical studies, case reports, case series, review articles and animal models were excluded. Study selection was carried out independently and then cross-checked by two authors through abstract viewing...

Asian Indians exhibit unique features of obesity; excess body fat, abdominal adiposity, increased subcutaneous and intra-abdominal fat, and deposition of fat in ectopic sites (liver, muscle, etc.). Obesity is a major driver for the widely prevalent metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Asian Indians in India and those residing in other countries. Based on percentage body fat and morbidity data, limits of normal BMI are narrower and lower in Asian Indians than in white Caucasians. In this consensus statement, we present revised guidelines for diagnosis of obesity, abdominal obesity, the metabolic syndrome, physical activity, and drug therapy and bariatric surgery for obesity in Asian Indians after consultations with experts from various regions of India belonging to the following medical disciplines; internal medicine, metabolic diseases, endocrinology, nutrition, cardiology, exercise physiology, sports medicine and bariatric surgery, and representing reputed medical institutions, hospitals, government funded research institutions, and policy making bodies...

It is well recognized that the foot is a complex structure with 26 bones and over 30 articulations. Measuring its mechanics is a formidable task that is usually accomplished with a simplification of the system. The papers presented at this meeting provided some of the most current research in the area of multisegment foot modeling. The scientific discussions were rich as the small, intimate, and collegial environment encouraged an open flow of ideas. It was acknowledged that much work is still needed in the development of foot models to improve the measurement of foot mechanics...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine whether United States medical or osteopathic boards have opinions, position statements, or policies on chaperone use, and whether any state laws regulate chaperone use. METHODS: United States Medical and Osteopathic Boards were surveyed by mail to determine whether policies, opinions, positions, or laws exist regarding use of chaperones during gynecologic examinations. We sent the survey to executives at 67 state boards, identified by a list from The Federation of State Medical Boards...

The meeting held on the Isle of Wight on 3 March 1995 was organised to discuss some of the recent evidence concerning the use of hydrolysed milk formulas not only in the treatment of cow's milk allergy but also in programmes designed to reduce or prevent other atopic disease. These products and their prophylactic use in particular have generated an amount of controversy firstly when they were introduced as a starting formula in the United States and secondly in Europe where paediatric, allergy and nutrition groups have issued various statements on their use (ESPGAN, 1993; Bjorksten, 1994; ESPACI, 1993; Bindels & Boerma, 1994)...

Despite an apparent concensus that mentorship is an important aspect of learning in the practice continuum, there has been no real critical appraisal of the literature for its research base. References to published work on mentorship may merely uncritically repeat non-researched statements which, in turn, may not always be relevant to nursing and midwifery education in the UK. This paper sets out to begin to construct a research agenda for mentorship, free of statutory and regulatory constraints about meaning and practice...

Interest in vascular causes for cognitive impairment is increasing, in recognition that such causes are common, and possibly preventable. This has led to attempts to better define vascular dementia and its natural history. Several sets of criteria for the diagnosis of vascular dementia have been proposed. We provide a brief overview of the background to the initiation of a Canadian consensus conference, established by the Consortium of Canadian Centres for Clinical Cognitive Research (C5R) and report the conclusions reached at that conference...
