Periapical and bitewing radiographs lack the sensitivity to reliably diagnose horizontal root fractures, and, therefore, asymptomatic teeth with root fractures may remain undetected for years. This article reports a case in which a patient presented with a mucogingival defect on tooth No. 24 with no apparent history of dental trauma. During a free gingival graft procedure, a horizontal root fracture was observed in the apical third of the aforementioned tooth. After the clinician communicated this finding to the patient, the patient recollected two instances of trauma that had occurred to this area more than 30 years earlier...

INTRODUCTION: Transverse mandibular deficiency has been traditionally managed by orthodontic compensation. However, without resolving the underlying skeletal hypoplasia it leads to high relapse rates. Few studies have reviewed the long-term experience and potential complications of mandibular symphyseal distraction osteogenesis (MSDO) as an alternative treatment method. MATERIALS AND METHOD: A retrospective review of 20 patients (range: 4-19 years; mean: 11.9 years) treated with a hybrid MSDO device over the period of 1996-2017 was conducted...

Peter Jannetta was a neurosurgery resident when he proposed the neurovascular compression theory. He built upon the astute observations of Dandy, Gardner, and others who, in the era before the operating microscope, had successfully ventured into the posterior fossa. In 1965, Jannetta performed cranial nerve microdissections for dental students and identified the trigeminal portio intermedia. He proposed that preservation of these sensory fibers may avoid complete facial numbness, and together with Robert Rand developed a subtemporal transtentorial approach for selective rhizotomy for trigeminal neuralgia (TN)...

BACKGROUND Infective endocarditis (IE) has a high mortality rate, even when treated with appropriate antibiotic therapy and surgical intervention. Right-sided endocarditis is in itself rare, with some studies reporting an incidence of 5-10%. The majority of these cases involve the tricuspid valve, and isolated pulmonary valve endocarditis (PVE) is an extremely rare entity affecting less than 2% of patients with infective endocarditis. Identification and early management are crucial to prevent long-term complications and reduce mortality...
