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. Transseptal suturation + nasal saturation splint was used in 14 patients to stabilize the septum while perforation rate was 22/400 (1.3%). Male sex ratio was...

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...

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...

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...
