BACKGROUND: Composite breast augmentation with fat grafting and an implant has become very popular in the past 5 years. This achieves the core volume projection of an implant complemented by the natural appearance and feel of fat. However, no study has looked at the complications and reoperation rates of this technique. METHODS: A retrospective chart review examined all patients who underwent the combined use of an implant and fat grafting for primary breast augmentation...

OBJECT: Reconstruction of a cranial vault defect is a frequent challenge in neurosurgery. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is used in many types of prostheses and has been employed for 10 years in our institution (University Hospital of Toulouse - France). The objectives of this study are to describe the benefits and drawbacks of reconstructing the cranial vault defect with a PEEK prosthesis. METHODS: Clinical data of the 37 patients who received a reconstruction with a custom-made PEEK prosthesis from 2007 to 2015 were retrospectively analysed...

#5
Jinhuan Ke, Jiandong Ye, Fupo He
Yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia (Y-TZP) has been proposed as a potential dental implant due to its good biocompatibility, excellent mechanical properties, and distinctive aesthetic effect. However, Y-TZP cannot form chemical bonds with bone tissue because of its biological inertness, which affects the reliability and long-term efficacy of Y-TZP implants. In this study, to improve the bioactivity of Y-TZP ceramics while maintaining their good mechanical performance, Y-TZP was modified by grain boundary activation via the infiltration of a bioactive glass (BG) sol into the surface layer of Y-TZP ceramics under different negative pressures (atmospheric pressure, -0...

Complex periprosthetic cases are considered as challenges by clinicians. Clinical and radiographic parameters should be considered separately to make the right choice between an endodontically or periodontally compromised treated tooth and implant. Therefore, in order to decide whether the tooth is safe or not, data that have to be collected are specific parameters of both the patient and the clinician. In addition, the presence of periodontal, prosthetic, and orthodontic diseases requires patients to be set in multidisciplinary approach...

INTRODUCTION: With proven oncological safety and improved aesthetic outcomes, the Type IV or "Wise pattern" skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM) is a procedure that is being performed with increasing frequency. Unfortunately, it is also associated with an increased risk of complications. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the complications associated with direct-to-implant and two-step tissue-expander breast reconstruction following Wise pattern SSM. METHODS: Systematic electronic searches were performed using PubMed, MEDLINE, and Embase databases...

Aim. This study aims to explain the main steps that characterize the implant-prosthetic rehabilitation in complex combined dental and maxillofacial trauma. Material and Methods. A 20-year-old patient reported an extensive facial trauma which also involved the alveolar process of the maxillary bone. The patient reported a maxillofacial fracture and the loss of teeth 1.3, 1.2, 1.1, and 2.1. A "Le Fort" type 2 fracture was also reported, with the malar bone involvement. After reduction and containment of bone fractures, through appropriate mounting plates, appropriate functional and aesthetic rehabilitation of the patient were replaced thanks to a temporary removable prosthesis...

Hyung Gyun Na, Yong Ju Jang
Dorsal augmentation is an essential procedure not only for Asians, who generally have indistinct and poorly developed nasal bridges, but also for Africans and Caucasians, who have similar dorsal deficiencies. There is no single ideal implant or graft for dorsal augmentation. Dorsal augmentation with autologous materials is considered ideal by many surgeons. However, harvesting autologous material is associated with donor-site complications, and these materials are difficult to handle and shape. Despite concerns over complications such as infection, extrusion, and deviation, alloplastic implant materials such as silicone or Gore-Tex have a critically important role in typical cosmetic dorsal augmentation due to their ease of use in producing a cosmetically appealing outcome and evading donor-site complications...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Esthetic outcomes associated with implant dentistry are important to both clinicians and patients. However, esthetic satisfaction may vary between the 2 groups. In order to evaluate the current publications relating to this topic, the following focused question was developed, "what are the quantitative and qualitative differences between clinician evaluations and patient perspectives in the assessment of single-tooth implant outcomes in the esthetic zone?" PURPOSE: The purpose of this systematic review was to identify differences in esthetic satisfaction between clinicians and patients when evaluating single-tooth implant-supported restorations...

The contribution of computing in the management of patients with pectus excavatum has greatly improved the aesthetic result of the reconstruction endoprosthesis. Computer aided design (CAD) enables the design of implants perfectly suited to the deformation of the patient and avoids approximations of the traditional technique of plaster mold. Although this technique is applicable in many areas, this article will only deal with pectus excavatum.

Background: Direct-to-implant (DTI) and tissue expander/implant (TE/I) reconstructions are the most common implant-based reconstructions after nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM). However, there are little data beyond complication rates comparing these options. Fat grafting has emerged as an adjunct in NSM reconstructions to improve aesthetic results; however, its impact on patient perceptions of aesthetic outcomes remain unknown. To improve patient-centered care, aesthetic outcomes must be considered from the patients' perspective...

BACKGROUND: Healthy breast surgery constitutes an important step to achieve symmetry in unilateral implant-based reconstructions. We analysed long-term results of breast symmetry obtained with reduction mammaplasties, and we evaluated whether different glandular pedicles may better preserve long-term stability. METHOD: Between 2006 and 2012, 90 patients underwent mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with tissue expanders and simultaneous contralateral reduction mammaplasty...

BACKGROUND: Pectus excavatum (PE) is one of the most frequent thoracic malformations. Generally, the malformation is not associated with functional disorders and often constitutes an aesthetic alteration with significant psychological distress. OBJECTIVES: To reduce the visibility of the residual scarring produced by corrective surgery and to improve the aesthetic outcome, the authors propose a new prosthetic implant technique through a periareolar access. METHODS: From January 2005 to January 2015, 11 patients affected with PE underwent the surgical procedure with a sternal prosthesis implanted through a periareolar access with the help of a fiberscope...

The inframammary fold (IMF) is the most critical visual landmark that affects final aesthetic outcome of augmentation mammoplasty and even post-mastectomy alloplastic breast reconstruction. Unfortunately, structural integrity of this landmark is greatly overlooked and very often neglected. Excessive undermining of the lower breast pole with aggressive disruption/lowering and subsequent poor reconstitution of the IMF scaffold combined with imbalanced implant-tissue dynamics may result in downward implant displacement with creep bottoming and upward tilt of the nipples...

INTRODUCTION: Ridge preservation can be performed with autologous bone, alloplastic bone substitute material or a combination of both. Dentin is similar to bone in its chemical composition. In its use as bone substitute material, it undergoes a remodelling process and transforms to bone. The presented case report introduces a technique in which the extraction socket is augmented with autologous, particulated dentin. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The fractured, non-savable mesial incisor of the upper jaw was carefully extracted in axial direction...
