Chung-Chih Yu, Yu-Ray Chen, James Cheng-Yi Lin
Coincidence of facial and dental midlines is one of the important goals in orthognathic-orthodontic treatment to achieve optimum facial aesthetics and good occlusal functions. Tools assisting diagnosis of facial midline are usually ruler or dental floss. These tools are usually hand held and hinder the global sight required in facial evaluation. Line laser device projects a steady narrow laser line and is commonly used in construction and carpentry to replace traditional chalk line tool. The authors take the advantages of line laser and incorporate it into facial evaluation in the authors' practice of single-splint orthognathic surgery...

INTRODUCTION: The alveolar bone graft (ABG) is an important phase in the surgical treatment of cleft lip and palate (CLP). The purpose of alveolar bone grafting is to eliminate oronasal fistulas, restore the continuity of the maxilla and provide optimal periodontal support for spontaneous eruption of permanent canines adjacent to the cleft. The purpose of this systematic review was to determine the ideal timing of the ABG that would achieve these goals. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Databases consulted were MEDLINE, Embase et EBSCOhost, using keywords present in the MeSH: [cleft lip and palate] and [alveolar bone graft] and [tooth eruption]...

BACKGROUND: Since their introduction in 1993, anatomical implants have provided a more natural appearance in breast augmentation, and many surgeons advocate their use and promote the good aesthetic results. However, the risk of implant rotation makes some of them reluctant to use these devices. The rotation rate varies among authors. METHODS: The authors present a 6.5-year series of 531 patients who underwent primary breast augmentation with macrotextured anatomical implants in a Swedish facility performed by one consultant surgeon (P...

Bioreactors are essential enabling technologies for the translation of Advanced Therapies Medicinal Products (ATMPs) from the research field towards a successful clinical application. In order to speed up the translation and the spreading of novel Tissue Engineering (TE) products into the clinical routine, TE bioreactors should evolve from laboratory prototypes towards industrialized products. In this work, we thus challenged the industrialization process of a novel technological platform, based on an established research prototype of perfusion bioreactor, following a GMP-driven approach...

OBJECTIVES: Psychological outcomes of aesthetic surgical procedures like hair transplantation are mostly positive including decreased anxiety, depression and social phobia and increased general well-being, self-efficacy and self-esteem. However, some patients may suffer from post-surgical depression and post-surgical increased suicide rates have been reported for breast augmentation patients. Difficulty adapting to the new image, unfulfilled psychological needs expected to be met by the surgery, side effects of the surgery like tissue swelling or bruising, uncontrolled pain, presence of body dysmorphic disorder and previous history of mood disorder may be some of the risk factors for post-surgical depression...

Since the introduction of silicone implants, several events have led to considerable uncertainty among the patients, public, and users. So far, however, the necessary steps to significantly improving patient safety have not been taken in any of these cases. Requiring stricter approvals for medical devices, improving monitoring by the regulatory authorities and the revision of the Medical Devices Directive are all initial steps in the right direction towards a change in policy, but are insufficient as an early warning system...
