The dynamic self-regulating prosthesis (protesi autoregolantesi dinamica, PAD) is a double-layered prosthesi, in use since 1992 in inguinal hernia repair. In 1999, we published the short-term results on 500 patients and herein we report the long-term follow-up. Five hundred eighty-five PAD procedures were performed on 500 adult male, unselected patients. Hernias were unilateral in 415 patients, were bilateral in 85 patients, were direct in 197 patients (33.7%), were indirect in 269 patients (46.0%), and were combined in 119 patients (20...

This resulted in the appearance of new and unexpected inconveniences, caused by the patient's attitudes that cannot be understood neither solved by the specialist doctors, hindering the application of important achieved advantages. This development is particularly remarkable in the most spectacular innovations (transplantation and reimplantation of organs, protesis, electronic ortesis, hormonal substitutions, chemotherapy, etc...

The partial protesis with metal carving and cemented with composite resin is used frequently as a reversible method in order to substitute teeth, due to the light preparation necessary for the original teeth. Recently, a new system (Bridgelok) with pins has been proposed as safer for this kind of protesis. This paper studies if this new system originates a higher resistance compared to other system without pins.

The preparation is the first step of any tooth reconstruction. The biological integration of the protesis is depending on the marginal adaptation (finish line of the preparation), occlusal adaptation (occlusal reduction), longevity of the restoration (retention and luting) and esthetics. The effect the two finish line of the preparation is studied using experimental design. In porcelain-fused-to-metal the finish line of the preparation in chanfer is superior at the beveled shoulder, because proportioning better marginal adaptation...
