This study evaluated the efficacy of a 2.0-mm locking plate/screw system compared with a 2.0-mm non-locking plate/screw system in mandibular fractures. A prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted. Patients were randomly assigned to receive 2.0-mm locking plates (group A) or 2.0-mm nonlocking plates (group B). All patients were followed up for 12(More)
A retrospective analysis of 15 cases of ankylosed temporomandibular joint (TMJ) reconstructed, with sternoclavicular joint graft (SCG), during the period 2002-2007 was undertaken. All cases were analyzed for functional adaptation of the graft, considering maximum interincisal opening, and protrusive and laterotrusive movement of the jaw. Significant(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is an established tool for in-vivo evaluation of the biochemical basis of human diseases. On one hand, such lucid depiction of 'live biochemistry' helps one to decipher the true nature of the pathology while on the other hand one can track the response to therapy at sub-cellular level. Brain tumors have been(More)
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the mandible is a rare and potentially life-threatening condition which can lead to massive hemorrhage. The following is a description where a large mandibular AVM presented with torrential bleeding following tooth extraction for caries. An orthopantomogram (OPG) was performed which was suggestive of aneurysmal bone cyst(More)
Background Post-Caesarean uterine scar rupture during vaginal birth after Caesarean section (VBAC) is a potentially life-threatening complication. Prediction of scar dehiscence and scar rupture is vital in treatment planning and selecting candidates of trial of labor after a Caesarean section (CS). Purpose To assess the accuracy of magnetic resonance(More)
Transferring mouse ESCs to a media supplemented with Mek and Gsk3β inhibitors (2i) provokes marked transcriptional and epigenetic changes, embodying a shift toward ground-state pluripotency. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Kolodziejczyk et al. (2015) examine population structures of ESCs while Galonska et al. (2015) unravel the mechanisms underlying(More)
BACKGROUND Invasive placental disorders are potentially life-threatening. Its diagnosis and evaluation of degree of invasiveness is vital in surgical and treatment planning. PURPOSE To compare the role of various imaging modalities used in current practice for evaluation of invasive placental disorders, and evaluate the validity of certain imaging signs(More)
Genitourinary involvement of neurofibromatosis is uncommon and genital neurofibromatosis is even rarer. Involvement of clitoris by neurofibroma can lead to clitoromegaly masquerading as a male penis. We report such a case of ambiguous genitalia in a 7-year-old female child presenting with clitoromegaly since birth, in which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)(More)
