BACKGROUND: Orthodontic treatment involves using fixed or removable appliances (dental braces) to correct the positions of teeth. The success of a fixed appliance depends partly on the metal attachments (brackets and bands) being glued to the teeth so that they do not become detached during treatment. Brackets (metal squares) are usually attached to teeth other than molars, where bands (metal rings that go round each tooth) are more commonly used. Orthodontic tubes (stainless steel tubes that allow wires to pass through them), are typically welded to bands but they may also be glued directly (bonded) to molars...

Roger W Byard
Loeys-Dietz syndrome is a recently described autosomal dominant disorder with underlying vasculopathy characterized by aortic and other vascular aneurysmal dissection/rupture. A 61-year-old man is reported who died suddenly and unexpectedly and at autopsy was found to have a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. Additional findings included dolichostenomelia, high-arched palate, and pectus excavatum. There was a strong family history of Loeys-Dietz syndrome, although the decedent had never been tested. Death was, therefore, due to a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm in a case of probable Loeys-Dietz syndrome...

INTRODUCTION: Tooth-arch discrepancy is a disproportion between dental volume and bone base. Extraction therapy can be a solution in case of excessive tooth volume and insufficient basal bone length. Techniques including bone distraction popularized by Ilizarov in the fifties allow the increase of the basal arch length in the maxilla as well as in the mandible. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We will describe the procedure of this dental arch length augmentation since the reflection about the therapeutic plan until the sufficient arch length is obtained and describe the indications of this orthodontic and surgical treatment in case of dental crowding, buccal and labial inclination and functional problems...

The right vertebral artery most commonly originates as the first branch of the right subclavian artery. Although anatomical variants of the aortic arch are commonly encountered on cross-sectional imaging, certain variants of the right vertebral artery are exceedingly rare. In this report, we present 3 cases of aberrant right vertebral artery arising as the last branch of the aortic arch, a very rare variant.

With the increased prevalence of retinal pathologies, automating the detection and progression measurement of these pathologies is becoming more and more relevant. Color fundus photography is the leading modality for assessing retinal pathologies. Because eye fundus cameras have a limited field of view, multiple photographs are taken from each retina during an eye fundus examination. However, operators usually don't indicate which photographs are from the left retina and which ones are from the right retina...

Incidence of gastric cancer is high in China and standard radical operation is currently the main treatment for gastric cancer. Postoperative complications, especially some special complications, can directly affect the prognosis of patients, even result in the increase of mortality. But the incidences of these special complications are low, so these complications are often misdiagnosed and delayed in treatment owing to insufficient recognition of medical staff. These special complications include (1) Peterson hernia: It is an abdominal hernia developed in the space between Roux loop and transverse colon mesentery after Roux-Y reconstruction of digestive tract...

For most water treatment plants, a significant number of performance data variables are attained on a time series basis. Due to the interconnectedness of the variables, it is often difficult to assess over-arching trends and quantify operational performance. The objective of this study was to establish simple and reliable predictive models to correlate target variables with specific measured parameters. This study presents a multivariate analysis of the physicochemical parameters of municipal wastewater. Fifteen quality and quantity parameters were analyzed using data recorded from 2010 to 2016...

BACKGROUD: Unilateral and bilateral antegrade cerebral perfusions (ACP) are recognized methods of cerebral protection in aortic arch surgery. However, the adequacy of cerebral protection in aortic arch surgery with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest is controversial. In this study, we compared unilateral and bilateral ACP of cerebral protection in aortic arch surgery by assessing the patient's intraoperative and postoperative brain function. METHODS: A total of 77 patients undergoing aortic arch surgery were included in this study...

A straightforward digital restorative method based on a library of stock abutments is presented. Precisely scanned data of laboratory analog components of the stock abutment were obtained using a tabletop scanner to produce the library. The stock abutment and surrounding teeth, opposing arch, and occlusal information were recorded using an intraoral scanner. After transferring the scanned data to computer-aided design software, an appropriate library file for the abutment connected within the mouth was matched in order to design the prosthesis...

OBJECTIVE: Today's growing medical image databases call for novel processing tools to structure the bulk of data and extract clinically relevant information. Unsupervised hierarchical clustering may reveal clusters within anatomical shape data of patient populations as required for modern Precision Medicine strategies. Few studies have applied hierarchical clustering techniques to three-dimensional patient shape data and results depend heavily on the chosen clustering distance metrics and linkage functions...

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related sclerosing disease is a recently proposed systemic fibroinflammatory disease entity, with periaortitis as a representative manifestation in the cardiovascular system. We present a case of IgG4-related periaortitis involving the aortic arch and proximal great vessels, mimicking an anterior mediastinal tumor on computed tomography. In patients with a soft tissue mass along the aortic wall, IgG4-related periaortitis should be included as a differential diagnosis and timely serologic investigation should be performed to prevent unnecessary surgery, because the disease shows a remarkable response to corticosteroids...

Open surgery remains the standard procedure for treatment of aortic arch pathologies. However, total endovascular repair can be a safe option for patients who are poor candidates for surgery because of compromised physiology. We report the case of a 63-year-old man with a post-dissection aortic arch aneurysm. We repaired the aneurysm using thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) and used the chimney technique to reconstruct the supra-aortic branches. The patient is doing well after 12-month follow-up, demonstrating that TEVAR with the chimney technique can be used successfully for the treatment of post-dissection arch aneurysm...
