Summary of "Pentalogy of Fallot: A case report and overview dental implications."

Pentalogy of Fallot is a rare congenital cyanotic heart disease and a variant of tetralogy of Fallot, in which tetralogy of Fallot is associated additionally with an atrial septal defect. It is characterized by right to left intracardiac shunting of blood leading to decreased pulmonary blood flow resulting in the development of cyanotic episodes. The case report aims to present the dental management of an 8-year-old child with a repaired cardiac anomaly of pentalogy of Fallot. His medical condition was assessed and physician consent was sought for procedural intervention. All invasive procedures were planned under antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent bacteremia associated endocarditis. Elaborate chairside dental intervention was carried out beginning with preventive schedule, oral prophylaxis and topical fluoride application followed by interception of carious progression with multiple GIC restorations and extractions of retained and grossly decayed teeth. Patient was reviewed on follow-up visit and no pain, discomfort, or complications were reported. Based on the case report it can be concluded that the medical status in patients affected with Pentalogy of Fallot must be taken into consideration to plan dental treatment and precautions must be taken for prevention of stress induced cyanosis and bacterial endocarditis in such cases.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.

The giving of attention to the special dental needs of children, including the prevention of tooth diseases and instruction in dental hygiene and dental health. The dental care may include the services provided by dental specialists.

A technique using a pneumatic, high-pressure stream of aluminum oxide to remove DENTAL ENAMEL; DENTIN; and restorative materials from teeth. In contrast to using DENTAL HIGH-SPEED EQUIPMENT, this method usually requires no dental anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, DENTAL) and reduces risks of tooth chipping and microfracturing. It is used primarily for routine DENTAL CAVITY PREPARATION.

The giving of attention to the special dental needs of the elderly for proper maintenance or treatment. The dental care may include the services provided by dental specialists.

Educational programs for dental graduates entering a specialty. They include formal specialty training as well as academic work in the clinical and basic dental sciences, and may lead to board certification or an advanced dental degree.
