BACKGROUND Among different malocclusions, posterior crossbite is thought to have a strong impact on the correct functioning of the masticatory system. OBJECTIVE To assess, by systematically reviewing the literature, the association between posterior crossbite and different temporomandibular disorder (TMD) diagnosis: disc displacement and masticatory(More)
Unilateral posterior crossbite has been considered as a risk factor for temporomandibular joint clicking, with conflicting findings. The aim of this study was to investigate a possible association between unilateral posterior crossbite and temporomandibular disk displacement with reduction, by means of a survey carried out in young adolescents recruited(More)
Preoperative weekly cisplatin, epirubicin, and paclitaxel (PET) improves prognosis in locally advanced breast cancer patients: an update of the Southern Italy Cooperative Oncology Group (SICOG) randomised trial 9908 Background: The present article reports the updated survival outcome of the 200 patients enrolled in the Southern Italy Cooperative Oncology(More)
Congenital insensitivity to pain is a rare clinical syndrome characterized by dramatic impairment of pain perception since birth and is generally caused by a hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy with loss of the small-calibre, nociceptive nerve fibres. We report a 9-year-old case, with a generalized congenital insensitivity to pain. The patient was(More)
The present study aimed at evaluating whether a weekly cisplatin, epirubicin, and paclitaxel (PET) regimen could increase the pathological complete response (pCR) rate in comparison with a tri-weekly epirubicin and paclitaxel administration in locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) patients. Patients with stage IIIB disease were randomised to receive either(More)
The aim was to investigate the relationship between the vertical craniofacial morphology and the sagittal path of mandibular movements. The study was carried out in 40 subjects who were free of temporo-mandibular disorders. Mandibular movements and maximal jaw opening (MO) were recorded by means of a jaw tracking device. The opening-closing angle (OCA) was(More)
Among different malocclusions, posterior cross-bite is thought to have a strong impact on the correct functioning of the masticatory system. The association between unilateral posterior cross-bite (UPCB) and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) clicking, however, remains still controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the presence of UCPB(More)
