OBJECTIVE: Titanium-prepared platelet-rich fibrin (T-PRF) is activated with titanium, which results in a more mature and aggregated form than PRF. In our previous studies, we established that the fibrin carpet formed with titanium had a firmer network structure, and longer resorption time in the tissue than the fibrin carpet formed with glass. The purpose of this randomized controlled clinical trial is to compare the effects of autogenous T-PRF and connective tissue graft (CTG). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 114 Miller Class I/II gingival recessions with abrasion defects were treated either T-PRF (63 teeth) or CTG (51 teeth) using a modified tunnel technique...

As the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction continues to increase, the rate of revision surgery continues to climb. Revision surgery has inherent challenges that must be addressed in order to achieve successful results. The cause of the primary ACL reconstruction failure should be determined, and careful preoperative planning should be performed to address the cause(s) of failure. Each patient undergoing revision surgery should undergo a thorough history and physical examination, receive full length alignment radiographs, lateral radiographs, 45-degree flexion weight-bearing postero-anterior radiographs, and patellofemoral radiographs...

Marfan syndrome is a connective tissue disorder associated with aortic dissection, aneurysmal degeneration and rupture. These cardiovascular complications represent the main cause of mortality, therefore repair is indicated. We present a 35-year-old woman who experienced acute onset of chest pain. Her imaging revealed a chronic DeBakey type I dissection with aortic root dilation and descending thoracic aneurysmal degeneration. She underwent a Bentall procedure and endovascular exclusion of the descending thoracic aortic aneurysm...

The current gold standard of care for mandibular segmental defeat reconstruction is the use of Ti-6Al-4V immobilization hardware and fibular double barrel graft. This method is often successful immediately at restoring mandible function, however the highly stiff fixation hardware causes stress shielding of the grafted bone and stress concentration in the fixation device over time which can lead to fixation device failure and revision surgery. The purpose of reconstructive surgery could be to create normal stress trajectories in the mandible following engraftment...

BACKGROUND: Surgical correction of tracheal stenosis is still a complex and challenging procedure. Acellular human amniotic membranes (AHAM) represent a promising biomaterial source for tissue regeneration. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether AHAM grafts improve tissue regeneration of the trachea in a rabbit model of tracheostomy. METHODS: Twenty rabbits were randomized into two groups. Animals in the control group underwent surgical tracheostomy only and animals in the AHAM group underwent surgical tracheostomy and received an AHAM graft that covered the defect site...

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a connective tissue disease that results in fibrosis in multiple organs. Various animal models for this disease have been developed, both genetic and induced. One of the induced models, sclerodermatous graft-versus-host disease (scl-GvHD), exhibits the main characteristics of SSc, but involves lethal γ-irradiation of recipients. We sought to develop a modified scl-GvHD model. Spleen cells from B10.D2 donor mice were transplanted into immunodeficient Rag-2 recipients on the BALB/c genetic background...

Hypertrophy of the breast (macromastia and gigantomastia) is a rare medical condition of the breast connective tissues. The etiology of this condition is still not clear; rarely, gigantomastia has been reported to develop in the setting of an autoimmune illness. We reported a case of a 37-years-old woman with undifferentiated connective tissue disease of 2-years duration presented with enlargement of breasts. The breast enlargment started at 5 months of gestation. She successfully underwent reduction mammoplasty with free nipple graft...

Connective tissue grafting is a means of developing stable and natural-looking soft-tissue architecture. The use of a subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) has been successful in achieving root coverage and augmenting tissue thickness. Tunnel techniques enable root coverage with results that appear natural. These techniques can be applied to the treatment of dental implants with gingival recession. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the use of a SCTG and a lateral access pouch in the treatment of multiple gingival recession defects affecting adjacent implants...

Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) regulate innate and adaptive immunity. Neurotrophins and their receptors control the function of neuronal tissue. In addition, they have been demonstrated to be part of the immune response but little is known about the effector immune cells involved. We report, for the first time, the expression and immune-regulatory function of the low affinity neurotrophin receptor p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR) by the antigen-presenting pDCs, mediated by toll-like receptor (TLR) 9 activation and differential phosphorylation of interferon regulatory factor 3 and 7...
