INTRODUCTION: This study describes a modified protocol using transmandibular zygomatic implants with immediate occlusal loading for the comprehensive dental rehabilitation of previously reconstructed mandibular defects and reports preliminary results of this modified protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients (6 female and 9 male), with a mean of age 40.26 years (range 12 to 68 years), had previously undergone immediate mandibular reconstruction using either autologous bone grafting, bone transport, or microvascular free-flap reconstruction for a variety of diagnoses...

BACKGROUND: Vertical root fracture (VRF) requires root removal. Diagnostics for proper identification are critical. The author conducted a study to relate subjective, objective, and radiographic findings for VRF identification. They noted visual changes of root and overlying bone patterns after flap reflection. METHODS: The author examined a case series of roots with suspected VRF after flap reflection and root or root-end removal; 42 roots were identified with a fracture...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to examine different patient- and treatment-related factors associated with the time of presentation of vertical root fractures (VRFs) in endodontically treated teeth restored with crowns. METHODS: One hundred ninety-seven root-filled, crowned teeth with no post and suspected of VRFs were included in the study. Patient details with relevance to endodontic treatment and clinical signs/symptoms were documented, and radiographs were taken...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to present a case series treated with an atraumatic procedure for maxillary sinus lift by crestal approach. This technique avoids the use of classical osteotomes, thus decreasing complications due to percussive and vibratory forces. METHODS: Three cases of partial edentulism in the distal maxillae with inadequate bone volume are treated by using SinCrest procedure (Meta, Reggio Emilia, Italy). With the guide of surgical templates, the sinus lift was performed, and implants were placed during the same procedure...

Neuroinflammation is a component of secondary injury following traumatic brain injury (TBI) that can persist beyond the acute phase. Leukotrienes are potent, pro-inflammatory lipid mediators generated from membrane phospholipids. In the absence of injury, leukotrienes are undetectable in the brain, but after trauma they are rapidly synthesized by a transcellular event involving infiltrating neutrophils and endogenous brain cells. Here, we investigate the efficacy of MK-886, an inhibitor of 5-lipoxygenase activating protein (FLAP), in blocking leukotriene synthesis, secondary brain damage, synaptic dysfunction, and cognitive impairments after TBI...

INTRODUCTION: Complicated crown- root fractures, extended caries and iatrogenic destruction often result in insufficient sound tooth structures and compromise the biologic width. Two common options for re-establishing flap with osseous surgery. Although some advantages are related to these two options, but coronal movement of gingival and alveolar bone in orthodontic extrusion, esthetic problem and inconsistent topography between the involved tooth and the adjacent teeth following osseous surgery are the involved tooth and the adjacent teeth following osseous surgery are the major disadvantages of these two approaches...

PURPOSE: Sensate reconstruction with glabrous skin is essential for ideal resurfacing of fingertip and pulp defects. The purpose of this study was to examine the palmar pivot flap as a reconstructive option for fingertip and pulp defects. METHODS: We used the palmar pivot flap to repair fingertip and pulp defects in 21 consecutive patients. Outcomes measured included range of motion of the distal interphalangeal and proximal interphalangeal joints, sensation, pain, cold intolerance, and percussion tenderness...

This report describes the surgical repositioning of a developing maxillary permanent central incisor in a horizontal position, followed by spontaneous eruption and root formation without orthodontic traction. Surgical exposure of the right central incisor was achieved. A 7-year-old boy referred for orthodontic consultation. Radiographic examination showed the crown of a maxillary right central incisor to be positioned horizontally with root formation at the initial stage. The surgically repositioned incisor (by a close-eruption surgical flap technique) spontaneously erupted into correct alignment after 2 years 3 months...

Fifteen patients (10 women and 5 men; median age 46 years; range 28-55), with recurrent severe carpal tunnel syndrome, were operated on with re-exploration and cover of the median nerve with free or pedicled flaps (five pedicled ulnar flaps, one pedicled dorsal forearm flap (served by the posterior interosseus artery), one groin flap, three free scapular flaps, and five free lateral arm flaps). The patients were followed up by a self-administered questionnaire at 3 months-14 years (median 8.5 years) after operation and replies were obtained from 14 patients...

von Willebrand's disease (vWD) is one of the most common hereditary hemorrhagic disorders. A mild to moderate deficiency of factor VIII and von Willebrand factor (vWf) often is associated with gingival bleeding. In this case report, the periodontal treatment of a patient with vWD is described. A 45-year-old woman with type IIA vWD was referred for periodontal therapy because of an episode of gingival hemorrhage and percussion pain of teeth #18 and #47. The periodontal findings included probing depths ranging from 2 to 6 mm, horizontal bone loss, and Class II furcation involvement of tooth #46...

The palmar thumb advancement flap was first described by Moberg in 1964. It was further utilized for the thumb and defined by Posner and Smith in 1971. In 1980, Macht and Watson favorably reported their technique of palmar advancement that was applicable not only for the thumb, but also for all five digits with soft tissue tip losses. A further refinement of their technique is to augment the digital tip with an autogenous dermal graft. This dermal "padding" is placed directly over the bony tuft to act as a "shock absorber," add bulk and contour to the distal tip of the finger, increase soft tissue stability, eliminate direct percussive tenderness of the bone, and decrease disability for specific occupations such as those requiring typewriting...
