The Role of the Clinical Nurse Specialist From the Perspective of Parents of Children Born With Cleft Lip and/or Palate in the United Kingdom: A Qualitative Study.

This qualitative study explores parents' perspectives of the clinical nurse specialist (CNS) after diagnosis of cleft lip and/or palate and while preparing for/after lip or palate closure and other events on the cleft treatment pathway in the United Kingdom.

Effect of early correction of nasal septal deformity in unilateral cleft lip and palate on inferior turbinate hypertrophy and nasal patency.

A relatively neglected aspect of cleft lip nasal deformity is the effect of septal deviation and inferior turbinate hypertrophy (ITH) on the functional airway. In particular, ITH in the noncleft side can be especially problematic, because it reduces the healthy nasal area, creating bilateral nasal obstruction that might affect the growth of the maxillofacial skeleton. Although these anatomic and functional changes are documented, few recommendations have been developed regarding the proper approach to ITH. The aim of the present study was to asses the ITH severity and determine the degree of nasal airway patency in patients who have undergone primary correction of the nasal septum during lip repair compared to patients operated on without primary septal correction.

Expanding torque possibilities: A skeletally anchored torqued cantilever for uprighting "kissing molars".

Several uprighting mechanics and devices have been used for repositioning tipped molars. "Kissing molars" (KMs) are an uncommon tooth impaction involving 2 severely tipped mandibular molars with their occlusal surfaces positioned crown to crown, with the roots pointing in opposite directions. Orthodontic uprighting of KMs has not been a usual treatment protocol, and it can be a challenging task due to the severe tipping and double impaction, requiring efficient and well-controlled uprighting mechanics. An innovative skeletally anchored cantilever, which uses the torque principle for uprighting tipped molars, is suggested. This torqued cantilever is easy to manufacture, install, and activate; it is a well-known torque that is effective for producing root movement. A successful treatment of symptomatic KMs, involving the first and second molars, was achieved with this cantilever. Thus, clinicians should consider the suggested uprighting mechanics and orthodontic device as a more conservative alternative to extraction of KMs, depending on the patient's age, involved teeth in KMs, tipping severity, and impaction positions.

Nonsurgical correction of a severe anterior open bite with mandibular molar intrusion using mini-implants and the multiloop edgewise archwire technique.

This article reports the case of a 24-year-old man with a large anterior open bite, mild mandibular crowding, increased overjet, no passive lip sealing, and Angle Class I malocclusion. The treatment results were achieved by mandibular molar intrusion using 1.8 × 8.5-mm mini-implants (C-implants) inserted between the mandibular first and second molars bilaterally. A 2.5-mm molar intrusion and open-bite closure occurred within 8 months. The multiloop edgewise archwire technique helped to intrude the posterior teeth. Total treatment time was 20 months. Fifty months postretention records are also presented. The patient achieved a suitable occlusion and satisfactory facial esthetics at the end of treatment and at the 50-month retention check.

Contemporary Class II Division 2 nonextraction adult treatment.

Achieving ideal results when treating a difficult malocclusion is a challenge that orthodontists frequently encounter. Maintaining those results is sometimes more challenging than the correction itself. As specialists in orthodontics, we should be able to apply bone physiology concepts during the diagnosis and treatment planning process and predict how bone will react after biomechanical stimuli. Understanding bone physiology and the biology of tissue response during orthodontic tooth movement should allow us to develop the proper mechanical design and consequently the therapeutic procedures necessary to achieve the expected tooth position and bone architecture. Surgically facilitated orthodontic therapy uses basic bone biology and physiologic bone turnover procedures as well as basic orthodontic biomechanical principles to correct dental malocclusions in the shortest, safest, and most conservative manner. The correction of such malocclusions with this approach is expected to be functional and stable.

Orthodontic treatment in patients with aggressive periodontitis.

Aggressive periodontitis (AP) is a condition that promotes breakdown of the periodontal tissues in a short time. In severe cases, pathologic migration of teeth and tooth loss can occur, producing esthetic and functional problems for the patient. Orthodontic treatment may be recommended to restore esthetics and masticatory function. We assessed the effects of orthodontic movement in the periodontal tissues of treated patients with AP.

Dentoskeletal effects of facemask therapy in skeletal Class III cleft patients with or without bone graft.

The association between maxillary protraction and bone graft in patients with cleft lip and palate remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a secondary alveolar bone graft influences dentoskeletal effects of facemask therapy in unilateral cleft lip and palate patients with a skeletal Class III relationship.

A multi-centre evaluation of oral cancer in Southern and Western Nigeria: an African oral pathology research consortium initiative.

Oral cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths among African populations. Lack of standard cancer registries and under-reporting has inaccurately depicted its magnitude in Nigeria. Development of multi-centre collaborative oral pathology networks such as the African Oral Pathology Research Consortium (AOPRC) facilitates skill and expertise exchange and fosters a robust and systematic investigation of oral diseases across Africa.

Numerical Imbalances of Chromosome 7 in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma.

Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is an aggressive neoplasm. Many chromosomal and gene alterations have been identified in OSCC, including structural and numerical changes. In this study, we implemented a molecular assay of chromosome 7 (Chr7) in order to investigate the level of its numerical instability in OSCC.

Periapical Cemento-osseous Dysplasia Is Rarely Diagnosed on Orthopantomograms of Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type 1 and Is Not a Gender-specific Feature of the Disease.

Several skeletal aberrations of the skull have been described for the tumor predisposition syndrome neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). Recently, periapical cemental/cemento-osseous dysplasia (COD) has been described in females affected with NF1. This reactive lesion of the hard tissues in tooth-bearing areas of the jaw has been proposed to represent a gender-specific radiological feature of NF1. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of COD in patients with NF1.

A challenging diagnosis: Case report of oral metastasis from gastric adenocarcinoma mimicking pyogenic granuloma.

Oral metastases occur more commonly in bone, but can also manifest in soft tissues and eventually resemble a reactive lesion. Few cases of oral metastases mimicking reactive lesions in soft tissues have been reported to date.

Effectiveness and safety of Glycyrrhizae Decoction for Purging Stomach-Fire in Behcet disease patients: Study protocol for a randomized controlled and double-blinding trail.

Behcet disease (BD) is a worldwide-occurred autoimmune disorder and currently lack of optional successful treatment. An ancient traditional Chinese medical formula called Glycyrrhizae Decoction for Purging Stomach-Fire (GDPSF) was recorded and nowadays has been observed to be effective for BD patients. However, the strict randomized controlled and double-blinding trail is needed to further assess this alternative medicine.

Roles of T follicular helper cells in the pathogenesis of adenoidal hypertrophy combined with secretory otitis media.

The aim of this study was to investigate the roles of T follicular helper (Tfh) cells in secretory otitis media (SOM) combined with adenoidal hypertrophy (AH).Patients with AH or AH combined with SOM admitted to the Yancheng No. 1 People's Hospital from December 2012 to December 2014 were included. Fourteen age-matched healthy individuals received physical examinations in the hospital served as control. The venous Tfh was determined using flow cytometry, and CD3 + CD4 + CXCR5 + T lymphocytes were defined as Tfh cells. Serum inflammatory factors including IL-8, IL-1b, IL-6, IL-10, TNF, IL-12p70, IL-21, and IgE were determined using commercial kits.Compared with the AH group, the number of CD4 + CXCR5 + T cells in peripheral blood of the AH combined with SOM group showed significant increase. Statistical differences were noticed in the number of the number of CD4 + CXCR5 + T cells in moderate and severe AH groups compared with that of the control group. Statistical differences were identified in the proportion of CD4 + CXCR5 + T cells in the adenoidal tissues between the AH combined with SOM group and AH group (P < .05). For the CD4 + CXCR5 + T cells in adenoidal tissues, no statistical differences were noticed between the moderate and severe AH groups (P > .05). The number of CD4 + CXCR5 + T cells was positively correlated to the serum IL-21. Nevertheless, no correlation was noticed between CD4 + CXCR5 + T cell and serum IL-8, IL-6, IL-10, and IgE.Tfh is involved in the AH combined with SOM in children. Besides, serum IL-21, IL-8, IL-6, IL-10, and IgE may be involved in the onset of SOM in children.

Uncommon ulceration on the lower lip.

Cutaneous pathomimia is a self-induced disease characterized by conscious self-injury to mucocutaneous boundary or its phaneres. We report the case of a 22-year old woman, with no notable medical history, presenting with sudden onset ulceration on her lower lip evolving for 3 months in a context of preservation of patient's clinical status. The patient had previously consulted several dermatologists and had undergone two skin biopsies with non-specific histological diagnosis. Clinical examination showed painful, well-defined ulceration with clean surface and non-indurated basis, measuring 1 × 3 cm in diameter and involving the left half of the lower lip (A). Given the clinical appearance of the lesion, its chronic nature and the lack of response to local care, several diagnosis were suspected: squamous cell carcinoma, cutaneous leishmaniasis, pyoderma gangrenosum… Deep biopsy was performed showing a loss of substance revealing the chorion, without histological characters of malignancy. Syphilis and HIV tests were negative. Fifteen days after, patient's evolution was marked by the appearance of an identical lesion on the right side of the lower lip, with complete healing of the former lesion by occlusive dressing (B). The follow-up interview showed, again, manipulation with the hand as well as family conflicts. Examination by a psychiatrist compared with clinical and evolutionary data showed cutaneous pathomimia.

Interleukin-6 and interleukin-10 gene polymorphisms and the risk of further periodontal disease progression.

Susceptible genotypes to periodontal disease are associated with disease onset and progression. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of gene polymorphisms on the risk of further disease progression and the need for further treatment among adults with chronic periodontal disease. Sixty-seven patients diagnosed with chronic periodontitis were grouped according to genotype status and risk of further progression of disease and tooth loss. All individuals were clinically evaluated for probing pocket depth, clinical attachment loss and bleeding on probing at baseline and 45 days after treatment. Blood samples were collected at baseline and genotyping of the polymorphisms in IL-6 (rs1800796) and IL-10 (rs1800872) genes were performed by PCR. Following DNA separation and genotyping, 65.7% of the patients were homozygous carriers of the IL-6 -572G and 49.3% were carriers of the IL-10 -592A allele. Individuals at risk of disease progression ranged from 7.5% to 62.7% based on the criteria used. Carriers of the IL-10 -592A allele were significantly associated with BOP ≥ 30% and therefore exhibited a higher risk of further periodontal breakdown (p = 0.018) with an odds ratio of 1.18. None of the other definitions of disease progression were significantly associated with the examined IL-6 and IL-10 genotypes (p > 0.05). IL-10 polymorphism was associated with an increased risk of further disease progression and the potential need for further treatment following non-surgical periodontal treatment. Susceptible IL-6 genotypes were not associated with the risk of persisting or recurrent disease activity.
