Chronic total occlusion recanalization still represents the final frontier in percutaneous coronary intervention. Retrograde chronic total occlusion recanalization has recently become an essential complement to the classical antegrade approach. In experienced hands, the retrograde technique currently has a high success rate with a low complication profile, despite frequent utilization in the mo...

The concept of minimal preparation is more than 25 years old. Interest in conservative treatments is being revisited as dentistry embraces thinner ceramic veneers and adhesive bonding agents that keep preparations in enamel. Experience and professional knowledge help determine appropriate treatments based on patients' clinical situations and esthetic demands. This article reviews the veneer mod...

This study demonstrates the effectiveness of a step-by-step carving technique that is quickly and efficiently mastered by dental students. Thirty-six final-year dental students volunteered to participate in this study. The students were given pre-prepared lower right first molar simulation teeth that had the occlusal half replaced in carving wax. The study was conducted in three time phases: pr...

The most consistent indications for USguided CB of breast are listed on Table 1. Patients with imaging studies revealing findings as BI-RADS category 4 (approximately 20% to 40% are malignant) or BI-RADS 5 (about 95% are malignant) must undergo biopsy. Findings classified as BI-RADS 3 present a lower risk for malignancy (< 2.0%), but such findings do require short-term follow-up. In such catego...
Many clinical reports have emphasized the importance of rotator interval lesions in patients with glenohumeral instability, and many investigators have described open repair techniques, either as a supplement to other capsule reconstruction or as an isolated procedure. In this article, an original arthroscopic technique for rotator interval closure is described. This technique allows the operat...
