UNLABELLED Dental injuries represent the most common claims against the anaesthesiologist. Dental lesions are frequent complications of oro-tracheal intubation and major causal factors are (i) poor dentition, (ii) aggressive laryngoscopy, (iii) insufficient anaesthesia and curarization, (iv) emergency interventions and (v) lack of experience by the(More)
INTRODUCTION Claims for tooth damage following intubation are increasing. An anaesthetic chart (AC) has been proposed to describe patient's pre-existent dental diseases and any possible lesions caused during intubation and extubation. MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective study of 235 cases of dental lesions reported in litigation files from(More)
The authors present a case of a presumably unknown pregnancy, in which the newborn was found dead in the bathroom. The child was considered stillborn and the death due to natural causes. The literature on estimation of the time of fetal death is reviewed. It has been reported that certain placental histological changes are useful in predicting the time of(More)
INTRODUCTION This study was carried out to evaluate data about trauma-related winter sports, including risk factors such as high speed, gender, age, alcohol consumption, details about the accident and snow conditions. METHODS A retrospective review was conducted to determine the injury patterns and crash circumstances in holiday skiers and snowboarders.(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this paper is to emphasize anaesthesiologists' difficulty in detecting poor dentition in cases of poorly applied prostheses and/or advanced periodontal disease, and to establish whether it is possible, and in which conditions, to calculate compensation in cases of dental damage postlaryngoscopy and/or intubation. The main complex(More)
The growth in popularity of flying ultralight aircraft and paragliding has been associated with an increased involvement of Emergency Medical Services because of various types of trauma suffered from both inexperienced and skilled individuals. This case presentation reports on a paraglider pilot, who was seen spinning "unusually" rapidly toward the ground,(More)
The aim of this case report was to evaluate the potential of preformed titanium foil (PTF) as membrane, used together with a mouldable allograft paste, for guided bone regeneration in a case of severe mandibular posterior atrophy involving the alveolar nerve. In order to create a rigid barrier to the competitive growth of soft tissues and a stable volume(More)
Dental trauma during tracheal intubation mostly happens in case of poor dentition, restricted mouth opening, and/or difficult laryngoscopy. 57-year-old man undergoing laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma had his dental work detached at induction of anesthesia. Oropharyngeal direct view, manual inspection, fibreoptic(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate a sinus lift via crestal approach (SLVCA) case series, performed with rotary instruments and hydraulic pressure, analyzed under endoscopic control. Sixteen patients (11 female, 5 male, mean age 47.13±8.07 years) candidates for SLVCA were enrolled in this study. Twenty-two cylindrical two-piece implants were placed.(More)
