METHODS: Pretreatment and posttreatment lateral…

Nonsurgical treatment of an adult patient with severe transversal skeletal discrepancy: Tooth bone-borne tandem expander and hybrid aligner approach

J World Fed Orthod. 2024 May 7:S2212-4438(24)00021-3. doi: 10.1016/j.ejwf.2024.03.008. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Although they have proven effective in the resolution of mild to moderate malocclusions, aligners demonstrate substantial limitations. More complex malocclusions therefore require a combination of auxiliaries, or a hybrid approach involving both aligners and fixed appliances, such as miniscrew-supported appliances…

Effectiveness of Mandibular Advancement Devices in Positional OSA Patients: A Retrospective Analysis of Predictive Variables in a Sample of Adult Patients

Sleep Sci. 2024 Feb 20;17(1):e55-e63. doi: 10.1055/s-0043-1776752. eCollection 2024 Mar. ABSTRACT Objectives To evaluate the efficacy of mandibular advancement devices (MADs) in improving apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) in positional obstructive sleep apnea (POSA), compared with a control group of nonpositional OSA (NPOSA) patients, from mild to very severe degree, in order to to find the main…

Monotherapy with P2Y12-inhibitors after dual antiplatelet therapy: Filling gaps in evidence

Int J Cardiol. 2024 Feb 19:131893. doi: 10.1016/j.ijcard.2024.131893. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Whether P2Y12 inhibitor monotherapy (P2Y12-I) is superior to aspirin following DAPT discontinuation post-PCI remains to be established. METHODS: We updated our prior network meta-analysis where P2Y12-I and aspirin had been compared with DAPT or directly with each other. The focus is…

Non-compliance treatment in a young adult full-step class II division 2 malocclusion with preadjusted lingual appliance and upper first molars extractions

Int Orthod. 2024 Feb 19;22(2):100848. doi: 10.1016/j.ortho.2024.100848. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT This case report describes a complex full-step class II case in a young adult patient treated with lingual straight-wire appliance and upper first molar extraction. As the patient refused a surgical treatment, she was offered the best possible camouflage with the double aim…
