BACKGROUND: Hypsodont equine cheek teeth possess large dental crowns, resting partly in the bony alveolus. Over a horse's life cheek teeth erupt continuously to compensate for occlusal wear of 3-4 mm per year. Parts of the crown initially resting in the bony alveolus become progressively exposed at the occlusal surface with time. Hitherto, it is unclear whether the typical structure of the equine occlusal surface, composed of a complex arrangement of enamel, dentin and cementum, remains constant or undergoes structural changes with age...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of our study was to describe a novel technique for reconstruction of orbital defects after maxillectomy using a non-anatomic titanium mesh suspension of orbital contents for both support and volume correction. This construct is then articulated with a layered fibula osteocutaneous free flap that restores orbital rim, zygoma, and maxillary alveolus. We herein present our application of this technique, including refinements over time and long-term outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed on 12 patients who underwent reconstruction of Brown class III orbitopalatomaxillary defects with extensive orbital involvement (at minimum complete orbital floor and rim absent) with titanium mesh sling and a layered fibula free flap...

Oral clefts play an essential role in disturbed odontogenesis of the deciduous and permanent dentition, yet little is known about this relationship. We investigated, within the categories cleft lip with or without alveolus (CL ± A) and cleft lip, alveolus and palate (CLAP), whether different CL subphenotypes based on morphological severity of the cleft show different dentition patterns and whether a more detailed subdivision of the incomplete CL has clinical relevance. In this retrospective study, 345 children with nonsyndromic unilateral CL ± A and CLAP from the Dutch Association for Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Anomalies (NVSCA) registry were included to assess the association between the CL subphenotypes and lateral incisor patterns...

INTRODUCTION: Iliac crest is the most common donor site for autogenous bone grafting as cortical bone, cancellous bone or combination of both can be harvested in abundance depending upon the need. Ilium provides highest concentration of osteo-component cells and greater quality of bone with less morbidity. AIM: The study was conducted to evaluate the donor site morbidity associated with autogenous iliac crest bone grafting for reconstruction in maxillofacial surgery...

REVIEW
Jie Cai, Diming Wang, Jianxin Liu
Dairy milk consists of more than 85% water. Therefore, understanding the regulation of fluid absorption in the mammary gland is relevant to improving milk production. In recent decades, studies using different approaches, including blood flow, transmembrane fluid flow, tight junction, fluid flow of the paracellular pathway and functional mammary epithelial cell state, were conducted to investigate how mammary gland fluid absorption was regulated. However, the relationship between regulation mechanisms of fluid flow and milk production has not been studied systematically...

Acute dyspnea is a frequent cause of access to the Discharge Department (DEA); Differentiation between cardiogenic and respiratory causes does not always seem simple and certain, causing a delay in initiating targeted therapies and prolonging the Patient's stay in the emergency department. The basic elements for the diagnosis remain the history and the objective examination, supplemented by the execution of an electrocardiogram, a determination of blood parameters and the execution of a chest X-ray. The limits of radiological semeiotics, related to a low sensitivity to high specificity, promote other methods available to the physician of First Aid...

BACKGROUND: Clefts of the lip and/or palate (CL/P) carry a social stigma that often causes psychosocial stress. The purpose of this study was to consider the association of cleft phenotype and age with self-reported aspects of psychosocial stress. METHODS: Children with nonsyndromic CL/P and unaffected children born between 1997 and 2003 were identified through the North Carolina Birth Defects Monitoring Program and North Carolina birth records, respectively. The psychosocial concerns of children with CL/P were assessed via a 29-question subset of a larger survey...

In 1985 this cleft team, dissatisfied with the treatment and results from cleft lip and palate repair, began a longitudinal long-term study using dynamic maxillary orthopedics and periosteoplasty as was originally described by Drs Millard and Latham. All cases were carefully documented through adolescence, including clinical assessments, orthodontic, radiographic, and cephalometric analyses. In 1998, in this journal, we published our data on 35 complete unilateral and 10 complete bilateral cleft patients. At that time facial growth was following normal cephalometric patterns...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the maxillary alveolar repositioning of the infants with bilateral cleft lip and palate (BCLP) undergoing computer-aided nasoalveolar molding (CAD-NAM). METHODS: A total of 19 BCLP infants undergoing CAD-NAM were recruited as the treatment group, and 21 nonpresurgically treated BCLP patients served as controls. The upper alveolar morphology was measured and evaluated. Changes in all variables between pre- and post-CAD-NAM were compared. RESULTS: By the end of CAD-NAM, significant difference was found in the P-A, P'-A', and L-ideal midline (P < 0...

The severity and lethality of influenza A virus (IAV) infections is frequently aggravated by secondary bacterial pneumonia. However, the mechanisms in human lung tissue that provoke this increase in fatality are unknown and therapeutic immune modulatory options are lacking.We established a human lung ex vivo co-infection model to investigate innate immune related mechanisms contributing to the susceptibility of secondary pneumococcal pneumonia.We revealed that type I and III interferon (IFN) inhibits Streptococcus pneumoniae-induced interleukin (IL)-1β release...

The mandibular canal (MC) contains vessels and nerves in the mandible of the Japanese macaque (JM). The inferior alveolar nerves and vessels of the mandible insert from the mandibular foramen and then run through the MC, the mental foramen and spinal foramen to the outside of the mandible. However, the detailed morphological properties of multiple canals, such as the accessory canal (AC) of the mandible, are unknown in JMs. The purpose of this study was to describe the multiple canals of JMs and to determine the location and analyse the measurements of the JM mandible...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies indicate that recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2) in a demineralized bone matrix scaffold (MS) is a comparable alternative to iliac bone autograft in the setting of secondary alveolar cleft repair. Post-reconstruction occlusal radiographs demonstrate improved bone stock when rhBMP-2/MS is used, but lack the capacity to evaluate bone growth in three dimensions. This study uses cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to provide the first clinical evaluation of volumetric and density comparisons between these two treatment modalities...

Intrusive luxation is a severe trauma-related event with a high frequency of pulp necrosis and root resorption. A common complication following intrusion is tooth ankylosis, which can extend to progressive replacement root resorption. An increasing infraposition in growing individuals can also occur. Decoronation is a new conservative treatment for cases of tooth ankylosis in young patients who have not finished growing. In this surgical technique, the tooth crown is removed and the root with replacement resorption process remains inside the alveolus...
