STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Computer-engineered complete dentures (CECDs) have significant potential as shown by recent reports of outcomes and specific applications. An understanding of complications and quality assessment factors associated with CECDs from compiled data is lacking in published reports. PURPOSE: The purpose of this systematic review was to determine the clinical complications and quality assessments related to CECDs. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Electronic searches of publications in English from January 1984 to September 2016 were performed in MEDLINE and Cochrane databases, with the results enriched by manual searches and citation mining to address 2 population intervention comparison outcome (PICO) questions: what are the clinical complications associated with CECDs, and what are the quality assessments with CECDs? RESULTS: A review of 5 selected articles (limited data) on CECDs revealed patient dissatisfaction related to overall outcome (25...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: The use of ceramic restorations has significantly increased in recent years because of their esthetic properties and the high cost of noble metals. However, given the lack of long-term clinical trials and the limitations of in vitro studies, the durability of ceramic restorations is still questionable. PURPOSE: The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the fracture rate of layered zirconia restorations at up to 5 years of clinical performance by using a dental laboratory survey model...

The purpose of this study was to provide an evidence-based overview of antibiotic prophylaxis in blepharoplasty. We performed a literature search that evaluated the risk of infection associated with blepharoplasty, as well as the risks and benefits of antibiotic prophylaxis. The overall infection rate associated with eyelid surgery is extremely low. However, the use of antibiotic prophylaxis has increased over the past 25 years in esthetic facial procedures. There is no standard of care for or against antibiotic prophylaxis, and routine practices vary widely...

BACKGROUND: Open fractures of tibia have posed great difficulty in managing both the soft tissue and the skeletal components of the injured limb. Gustilo Anderson III B open tibial fractures are more difficult to manage than I, II, and III A fractures. Stable skeletal fixation with immediate soft tissue cover has been the key to the successful outcome in treating open tibial fractures, in particular, Gustilo Anderson III B types. If the length of the open wound is larger and if the exposed surface of tibial fracture and tibial shaft is greater, then the management becomes still more difficult...

BACKGROUND: With the increasing popularity of rejuvenation treatments of the skin, there has been an increase in patient inquiry for rejuvenation of the hand. Thus far, no imaging tool exists to analyze the aging process of the hand. Three-dimensional (3D) stereophotogrammetry is a reliable technique, which is used for other purposes in soft tissue analysis of the upper extremity. This pilot study aimed to investigate the possibility of visualizing the hand aging process by 3D stereophotogrammetry...

The emphasis on esthetic outcomes and quality of life after breast cancer surgery has motivated surgeons to develop oncoplastic breast conserving surgery (OPS). Training programs are still rare in most countries, and there is little standardization, which challenges the scientific evaluation of the techniques. The present article attempts to standardize OPS nomenclature, indications, and reconstruction choice selection embedded in a thorough review of the literature. We propose four breast conserving surgery (BCS) categories: Conventional tumorectomy, oncoplastic mastopexy, oncoplastic tumorectomy and oncoplastic reduction mammoplasty...

Marble is a natural dimension stone that is widely used in building due to its resistance and esthetic qualities. Unfortunately, some concerns have arisen regarding its production process because quarrying and processing activities demand significant amounts of energy and greatly affect the environment. Further, performing an environmental analysis of a production process such as that of marble requires the consideration of many environmental aspects (e.g., noise, vibrations, dust and waste production, energy consumption)...
