Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 14, 2019

There were 280 male and 120 female patients. 378 patients had no postoperative septal perforation. 22 had perforation after surgery. Of the patients in the perforated group, 19 male and 3 female were female. 21 of these patients smoked, 1 patient did not drink. 11 of these patients were drinking alcohol and 10 of them did not drink alcohol.

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 11, 2019

The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the influence of different irrigation solutions on the microshear bond strength of a universal adhesive system applied in etch & rinse mode and self-etch mode to dentin- enamel junction (DEJ), coronal dentin, pulp chamber dentin, and floor of the pulp. As well as a highly adequate apical seal, an effective coronal seal, is one of the primary goals of a successful endodontic dental treatment. Recently, a large number of adhesive systems have been...

Atypical Presentation of Viral Myocarditis in a Young Adult

Mandeep Kaur, Prema Bezwada and Ayala Rodriguez Cesar

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 09, 2019

Convulsive Syncope can be difficult to distinguish from seizures at times. We present a young adult with cardiogenic convulsive syncope that mimic seizures. Continuous cardiac monitoring revealed various arrythmias during seizure like activity. She had a viral prodrome. Cardiac MRI was diagnostic for myocarditis. More detailed studies for the role of a noninvasive cardiac testing such as Cardiac MRI (CMR) and newer treatment modalities such as anti-thymocyte immunoglobulin are required for the m...

Facial Nerve Palsy, When Should We be Alarmed: A Case Report of Facial Nerve Paralysis Caused by Occult Malignancy and Review of the Literature

Mohammed Alghamdi, Tobias Strenger, Ruben Thoelken, Tina Schaller and Johannes Zenk

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 06, 2019

Facial Nerve Palsy is mostly idiopathic in nature. Every patient with a facial nerve Paralysis needs to go under through investigation, most importantly imaging to exclude other causes such as neoplasms. In very rare cases, the normal imaging results may be misleading and occult tumor or perineural spread along the nerve may not be detectable. Luckily these cases may present with alarming signs such as progressiveness nature associated with pain, complete Paralysis with no recovery and most impo...

Chronic Wound Formation on an Old Burn Scar after Surgical Incision and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Case Report

Kubra Ozgok-Kangal, Iclal Karatop-Cesur, Cesur Ustunel and Kemal Simsek

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 04, 2019

Chronic wounds fail to progress through the phases of wound healing; inflammation-proliferation-remodelling which are usually the result of persistent infection, malperfusion due to periwound hypoxia, cellular failure, and unrelieved pressure or repetitive trauma. In this report, we present a different rare cause of a chronic wound; a surgical incision on a post-burn scar during the surgery of transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P) because of urethral stricture. After six weeks, the sur...
