Statement Of Problem: Bilateral balanced occlusion has been advocated over nonbalanced occlusion for improved removable complete denture stability and function. However, assessments of quality of life and patient satisfaction studies between the 2 occlusion schemes are lacking.

Purpose: The objective of this parallel randomized control trial was to determine the difference in quality of life and patient satisfaction between the nonbalanced and bilaterally balanced occlusal schemes.

Material And Methods: Sixty participants were included in the parallel randomized control trial of nonbalanced and bilaterally balanced complete dentures. Thirty were recruited into each group with definitive inclusion and exclusion criteria as per the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) guidelines. Quality of life was estimated from the oral health quality of life (Oral Health Impact profile) for edentulous patients questionnaire, and patient satisfaction was analyzed from a visual analog scale. The estimation was made at 0, 3, and 6 months after denture insertion. The data were statistically analyzed with the Friedman, Mann-Whitney, and t test (α=.05).

Results: The mean ±standard deviation Oral Health Impact profile score was 60.81 ±8.87 for nonbalanced dentures and 64.12 ±8.98 for bilaterally balanced dentures. The mean ±standard deviation visual analog scale score was 2.84 ±0.28 for nonbalanced dentures and 2.90 ±0.31 for bilaterally balanced dentures. The Mann-Whitney and t test indicated nonsignificant differences between the 2 groups and at different time intervals for Oral Health Impact profile and visual analog scale scores (P>.05).

Conclusions: The study detected no significant differences between the 2 occlusal schemes in quality of life or patient satisfaction.

Dimensional accuracy of vinyl polyether and polyvinyl siloxane impression materials in direct implant impression technique for multiple dental implants.

Eur Oral Res 2021 May;55(2):54-59

Department of Prosthodontics, SRM Dental College, Chennai, TamilNadu, India.

Purpose: The present study compared the dimensional accuracy of vinyl polyether silicone (VPES) and polyvinyl siloxane (PVS) impression materials used for non-splinted (NS) and splinted (S) direct open-tray impression techniques for multiple implants inserted in simulated edentulous mandibles.

Materials And Methods: A mandibular stainless steel model with eight internal connections for implant analogs was fabricated to simulate a clinical scenario. The acrylic resin splinted and non-splinted direct impressions were obtained for both VPES and PVS materials. Seventy-two cast samples were divided into four groups based on the impression techniques and materials used. The dimensional accuracies of the casts were measured in three different axes using a computerized coordinate measuring machine (CMM), and were statistically compared.

Results: The differences in the distortion values between the VPES and PVS impression materials were not statistically significant. Similarly, the differences between the splinted and non-splinted groups among the VPES and PVS materials were not statistically significant.

Conclusion: The casts fabricated from VPS or PVS impression materials provide similar dimensional accuracy regardless of the implant splinting method.

Splenocystojejunostomy for the treatment of a symptomatic splenic pseudocyst.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2021 Jun;103(6):e202-e205

Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, UK.

Pancreatic pseudocyst is a widely recognised local complication following acute pancreatitis. Typically occurring more than four weeks after acute pancreatitis, a pseudocyst is a mature, encapsulated collection found within the peripancreatic tissues manifesting as abdominal pain, structural compression, gastroparesis, sepsis and organ dysfunction. Therapeutic interventions include endoscopic transpapillary or transmural drainage, percutaneous catheter drainage and open surgery. We present our management of idiopathic chronic pancreatitis complicated by a pancreatic pseudocyst extending to the splenic capsule in a 38-year-old man. A trial of conservative management was sought, but later escalated to percutaneous fluoroscopic drainage. Despite a period of volume reduction of the pseudocyst, reaccumulation occurred. We describe successful surgical treatment via means of a splenocystojejunostomy and subsequent pain reduction.
