Digital workflow for CAD-CAM custom abutments of immediate implants based on natural emergence profile of the tooth to be extracted.

J Oral Implantol 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

University of Malta Associate Professort Dental Surgery Mater dei Hospital, MSD, Block 1, Level 2 MALTA Msida Msida 2090 551132662049 +35699729634 School of Dentistry, University of São Paulo.

The aim of this report is to present a digital workflow technique to design a customized abutment for provisionalization of an immediate-placed implant based on the natural emergence profile of the tooth to be extracted. The workflow involves the combination of intraoral and CBCT scans, from which three-dimensional (3D) reconstructions of soft tissue and alveolar bone, as well as of the tooth to be extracted are obtained and exported as STL files. The files are imported to a computer-aided design (CAD) software, in which a virtual wax-up and custom abutment design are performed considering the natural emergence profile of the patient's tooth prior to extraction.

Interposition Technique for Pulmonary Valve Replacement.

World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg 2021 May;12(3):411-413

Division of Cardiovascular Surgery, 8404Children's National Health System, Washington, DC, USA.

Background: Stented bioprosthesis implant at surgical pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) ideally should be 25 to 27 mm to facilitate future percutaneous PVR. This often requires accommodating 35 to 37 mm diameter sewing ring in the pulmonary position and requires anterior patch augmentation of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). We present a novel "interposition" technique of PVR that allows upsizing the valve without RVOT patch augmentation. Read More

Despite higher revision rate, MoM large-head THA offers better clinical scores than HR: 14-year results from a randomized controlled trial involving 48 patients.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2021 Apr 30;22(1):400. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Surgery Department, Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, Montreal University, 5415 Boulevard de l'Assomption, Montréal, Québec, H1T 2M4, Canada.

Background: The high failure rates of metal on metal (MoM) large diameter head total hip arthroplasty (LDH THA) and hip resurfacing (HR) prevented their long-term comparisons with regards to clinical outcome. Such knowledge would be important as ceramic LDH bearing is now available. With long-term follow-up, we investigated the difference in 1) patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs); 2) revision and adverse events rates, and 3) metal ion levels between MoM LDH THA and HR.

Multiple pharmacological inhibitors targeting the epigenetic suppressor enhancer of Zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) accelerate osteoblast differentiation.

Bone 2021 Apr 30:115993. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA; Center for Regenerative Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA; Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA. Electronic address:

Skeletal development and bone formation are regulated by epigenetic mechanisms that either repress or enhance osteogenic commitment of mesenchymal stromal/stem cells and osteoblasts. The transcriptional suppressive trimethylation of histone 3 lysine 27 (H3K27me3) hinders differentiation of pre-committed osteoblasts. Osteoblast maturation can be stimulated by genetic loss of the H3K27 methyltransferase Ezh2 which can also be mimicked pharmacologically using the classical Ezh2 inhibitor GSK126. Read More

Digital Workflow for Full-Arch Immediate Implant Placement Using a Stackable Surgical Guide Fabricated Using SLM Technology.

J Prosthodont 2021 May 2. Epub 2021 May 2.

Division of Restorative Dental Sciences, Department of Clinical Sciences, College of Dentistry, Ajman University, Ajman City, UAE.

The failing dentition of partially edentulous individuals may be used as an initial reference for stackable restrictive surgical guides during full-arch immediate implant placement. The stackable guide option derived from a digital workflow increases the predictability of the performance of bone reduction, immediate implant placement, and immediate loading of provisional implant-supported fixed dental prostheses. The present paper aims to report a practical approach to design and produce a metal framework with occlusal rests to facilitate the use of a tooth-supported surgical guide when full-arch immediate implant placement is indicated in patients with failing dentition.

Can a Peritoneal Conduit Become an Artery?

EJVES Vasc Forum 2020 13;49:23-29. Epub 2020 Oct 13.

Institute for Circulation and Imaging (ISB) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway.

Objective: Current vascular grafts all have limitations. This study examined peritoneum as a potential graft material and the transfer of peritoneum into a functional artery like conduit after end to end anastomosis into the common carotid artery of sheep. The aim was to investigate whether implantation of a peritoneal tube into the arterial tree results in a structure with function, histological findings, and gene expression like an artery, and whether such arterialisation occurs through a conversion of the phenotype of peritoneal cells or from host cell migration into the implant.

OTA Int 2020 Mar 23;3(1):e057. Epub 2020 Mar 23.

Hughston Orthopedic Trauma Surgeons, Central Florida Regional Hospital, Sanford, FL. University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL.

A precise definition of infection after fracture fixation is essential for the evaluation of published research data and for the future establishment of uniform treatment concepts. Recently, a multidisciplinary expert panel has developed a consensus definition that includes 4 confirmatory criteria for infection following fracture fixation. These criteria are: Fistula, sinus, or wound breakdown; purulent drainage or deep purulence at surgery; positive cultures from at least 2 separate deep tissue/implant specimens taken during an operative intervention; and microorganisms in deep tissue specimens confirmed by histopathological staining.
