BACKGROUND: Titanium is the gold standard for dental implants, since it has demonstrated excellent biocompatibility and osseointegration properties. The rate of osseointegration is however affected by the surface morphology and peri-implant infections may affect fixture and the long-term osseointegration outcome. Thus chemical composition of a coating at the implant-abutment junction (IAJ) surface is expected to play a key role in preventing bacterial infection. PURPOSE: In the present study a new antimicrobial polysiloxane coating functionalized with chlorexidine digluconate (PXT) has been tested in an in vitro model...

The aim of this study was to predict the fatigue life of two different connections of a dental implant as in load transfer to bone. Two three-dimensional models were created and assembled. All models were subjected to a natural masticatory force of 118 N in the angle of 75° to the occlusal plane. All degrees of freedom in the inferior border of the cortical bone were restrained, and the mesial and distal borders of the end of the bone section were constrained. Fatigue material data and loads were assumed as random variables...

Resonance frequency analysis (RFA) has become the main tool used to assess the osseointegration of dental implants. The objective of this study was to verify the relationship between the ISQ values with different prosthetic abutments and with the implant platform. The hypothesis was that ISQ values changes according to the abutment height. Twelve patients were included, whose contribution to the study was 31 dental implants (external hexagon connection implants, 4.1x10 mm). The temporary implant-supported crown and prosthetic components were removed and the following smartpegs were inserted, one at a time: type 1, in the implant platform (G1); type A3, in the microunit component with 1mm transmucosal height (G2) and type A3, in the microunit component with 5mm transmucosal height (G3)...

Nanostructured hydroxyapatite (HAP) and its nanoparticles are widely used for implantation into the human organism. The biocompatibility of the implants depends very much on the interaction between the implant and the cells regenerating tissue to be connected to the implant. An implant surface electrical charged density plays an important role in these processes. Possible instruments managing the surface electrical potential of HAP are in the focus of this paper. Both theoretical and experimental results evidence that: - the surface electrical charge density of the nanoparticle depends on its size and shape; - the electrical charge density of HAP could be engineered by contact less technique because of deposition of the electrical charge from the external radiation source, surface couples reconstruction...

Pilot clinical trials of human patients implanted with devices that can chronically record and stimulate ensembles of hundreds to thousands of individual neurons offer the possibility of expanding the substrate of cognition. Parallel trains of firing rate activity can be delivered in real-time to an array of intermediate external modules that in turn can trigger parallel trains of stimulation back into the brain. These modules may be built in software, VLSI firmware, or biological tissue as in vitro culture preparations or in vivo ectopic construct organoids...

Osseointegrated implants are very popular dental treatments today in the world. In osseointegrated implants, the occlusal forces are transmitted from prosthesis through an abutment to a dental implant. The abutment is connected to the implant by mean of a screw. A screw is the most used mean for connecting an implant to an abutment. Frequently the screws break and are lost. There is an alternative to screw retained abutment systems: the cone-morse connection (CMC). The CMC, thanks to the absence of the abutment screw, guarantees no micro-gaps, no micro-movements, and a reduction of bacterial leakage between implant and abutment...

Bacterial leakage at the implant-abutment connection of a two-piece implant system is considered the main cause of peri-implantitis. Prevention of bacterial leakage at the implant-abutment connection is mandatory for reducing inflammation process around implant neck and achieving bone stability. Micro-cavities at implant-abutment connection level can favour bacterial leakage, even in modern two-piece implant systems. The conical connection with an internal octagon (CCIO) is considered to be more stable mechanically and allows a more tight link between implant and abutment...

BACKGROUND: In unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA), there is no consensus regarding how to determine the anteroposterior (AP) reference of the tibia. A number of surgeons in Japan perform the sagittal saw cut using the medial intercondylar ridge (MIR) of the tibia according to surgical manuals. However, there is no theoretical basis for this practice. METHODS: Preoperative computed tomography data from 32 lower limbs of 31 Japanese patients who received UKA were used...

The problem of technical complications in implants and implant-supported restorations has existed for decades. The most frequent complication is the loosening of the fixing screw, which although is not catastrophic, if it occurs repeatedly, it may affect the success of the implant therapy and the patient satisfaction. Factors that affect the frequency of prosthetic complications include: the implant-abutment connection, para-functional habits, cantilevers, and the type of restoration. Regarding the implant-abutment connection, the first systems were those with an external hexagon...

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is one of the modern management therapies in patients with advanced heart failure, and it serves as a bridge to heart transplantation or even as destination therapy. However, it is burdened with a high risk of thromboembolic, hemorrhagic, and infectious complications despite prophylactic management. Splenic abscesses, as septic complications following implantation of mechanical ventricular support, have not yet been described in the literature. We report of a patient with severe left ventricular insufficiency (NYHA II/III), pulmonary hypertension, and arrhythmia who underwent implantation of the Heart Ware® pump for left ventricular support with simultaneous tricuspidvalvoplasty, as a bridge therapy to heart transplantation...

Chronic or neuropathic trigeminal facial pain can be challenging to treat. Neurosurgical procedures should be applied when conservative treatment fails. Neuromodulation techniques for chronic facial pain include deep brain stimulation and motor cortex stimulation, which are complex to perform. Subcutaneous nerve field stimulation is certified for chronic back pain and is the least invasive form of neuromodulation. We applied this technique to treat chronic and neuropathic trigeminal pain as an individual therapy concept...
