Systemic and single cell level responses to 1 nm size biomaterials demonstrate distinct biological effects revealed by multi-omics atlas.

Bioact Mater 2022 Dec 26;18:199-212. Epub 2022 Mar 26.

Dr. Li Dak Sum & Yip Yio Chin Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, and Department of Orthopedic Surgery of Sir Run Shaw Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, 310058, PR China.

Although ultra-small nanoclusters (USNCs, < 2 nm) have immense application capabilities in biomedicine, the investigation on body-wide organ responses towards USNCs is scant. Here, applying a novel strategy of single-cell mass cytometry combined with Nano Genome Atlas of multi-tissues, we systematically evaluate the interactions between the host and calcium phosphate (CaP) USNCs at the organism level. Combining single-cell mass cytometry, and magnetic luminex assay results, we identify dynamic immune responses to CaP USNCs at the single cell resolution. Read More

Comprehensive review of the incisive branch of the inferior alveolar nerve.

Anat Cell Biol 2021 Dec;54(4):409-416

Department of Neurosurgery, Tulane Center for Clinical Neurosciences, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, LA, USA.

The incisive branch of the inferior alveolar nerve is a vital anatomical structure within the anterior mandible that has not been thoroughly defined and outlined in reports in the literature until recent years. Advances in radiological imaging, particularly the widespread use of cone-beam computed tomography has allowed for accurate visualization of the mandibular incisive canal (MIC) and its associated incisive branch of the inferior alveolar nerve. Surgical damage to the MIC, which could result in hemorrhage and sensory disturbance, may occur in commonly practiced oral and maxillofacial procedures, such as chin bone harvesting, implant placement, fracture repair and removal of pathologic entities of the anterior mandible.

Intracapsular fracture of the proximal femur in a bilateral above-knee amputee: A case report with technical tips for intraoperative positioning and literature review.

Chin J Traumatol 2021 Sep 14. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Department of Orthopaedics, Jay Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Center, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Intracapsular fractures of the proximal femur are one of the most common fractures of the lower limbs. Most cases require osteosynthesis with suitable implants, and intraoperative positioning of the patient on the fracture table is a prerequisite to facilitate fracture manipulation, traction, reduction and fluoroscopy assessment. However, positioning the limbs of bilateral above-knee amputees for internal fixation of related proximal femoral fractures is a difficult task, which require customized inventory for effective limb positioning and fracture manipulation.

Implantable optical fibers for immunotherapeutics delivery and tumor impedance measurement.

Nat Commun 2021 08 26;12(1):5138. Epub 2021 Aug 26.

Department of Chemical Engineering, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA, USA.

Immune checkpoint blockade antibodies have promising clinical applications but suffer from disadvantages such as severe toxicities and moderate patient-response rates. None of the current delivery strategies, including local administration aiming to avoid systemic toxicities, can sustainably supply drugs over the course of weeks; adjustment of drug dose, either to lower systemic toxicities or to augment therapeutic response, is not possible. Herein, we develop an implantable miniaturized device using electrode-embedded optical fibers with both local delivery and measurement capabilities over the course of a few weeks. Read More

Interdisciplinary rehabilitation for mutilated dentition with mini-implants, autotransplants, and a dental implant.

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2021 Dec 13;160(6):872-886. Epub 2021 Aug 13.

Beauty Forever Dental Clinic, Taipei, Taiwan.

A patient with mutilated dentition was treated to an acceptable result with the help of mini-implants for anchorage, autotransplantation of 2 teeth, one dental implant, and multiple prostheses. The major problems for this mutilated dentition were multiple missing teeth, bite collapse with posterior crossbites, deepbite with a canted gummy smile, and severe skeletal discrepancy of maxillary protrusion and mandibular retrusion. Mini-implant anchorage was applied to retract and intrude the maxillary arch to reduce the protrusion and rotate the mandible counterclockwise to improve the chin projection. Read More
