Studies over a 40 year period have reported inadequate education and counseling for persons with laryngectomy; however, several long-term trends, including centralization of laryngectomy surgeries in major teaching hospitals, the rise of the internet, and the increased use of the tracheoesophageal prosthesis (TEP) for voice all have the potential to improve this situation. This study investigated if persons with total laryngectomy reported receiving adequate education and counseling before and after their...
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in the presence of a preexisting mitral prosthesis is challenging and its influence on the morphology of mitral prosthesis and the positioning of transcatheter heart valve (THV) is unknown. We assessed the feasibility of TAVI for patients with preexisting mitral prostheses, its influence on mitral prosthesis morphology, and the positional interaction between a newly implanted THV and mitral prosthesis using serial multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). Thirt...
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common health problem affecting 30% of young men worldwide. Despite the availability of non-invasive lines of management, penile prosthesis insertion is considered as a definite solution for ED. Despite strict perioperative measures, infection still complicates around 3% of penile prosthesis surgeries.
To test a novel implant metal-acrylic prosthesis design in comparison to a conventional prosthesis design through simulation of cyclic masticatory loading. The novel design involved digital designing and fabrication of the framework and the matched veneering acrylic resin material.
The majority of older patients with a transtibial amputation are prescribed a standard (more rigid, not self-aligning) prosthesis. These are mostly suitable for level walking, and cannot adjust to different sloped surfaces. This makes walking more difficult and less energy efficient, possibly leading to longer term disuse. A Cochrane Review concluded that there was insufficient evidence to recommend any individual type of prosthetic ankle-foot mechanism. This trial will establish the feasibility of conducti...
Ascending aortic aneurysm is usually associated with aortic valve diseases, especially aortic stenosis. The standard technique involves the substitution of the dilated aortic segment with a Dacron tube and replacement of the aortic valve with a regular prosthesis. The correction of ascending aortic aneurysm with aortic valve replacement using the new sutureless and rapid deployment prosthesis was performed by a minimally invasive approach and for the first time in a Brazilian Center.
Thermal discomfort is prevalent among prosthesis users. This observational study of thirty unilateral lower-limb prosthesis users compared their skin temperatures and the thermal discomfort experienced during exercise between their residual and contralateral limbs.
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is an effective treatment for advanced osteoarthritis of the knee. No large and long-term follow-up study has been done about Cedior prosthesis. The study hypothesis was that 15-year survival for the Cedior™ prosthesis is at least as good as rates reported for other models. A continuous retrospective single-center study included patients managed by Cedior™ TKA with at least 15-year follow-up. The main endpoint was prosthesis survival; secondary objectives were to identify f...
Ameloblastoma in the tibia is rare. Limb reconstruction after tumor resection is challenging in terms of selection of the operative method. Here, we report a case of radical resection of an ameloblastoma in the mid-distal tibia combined with limb salvage using a three-dimensional (3D)-printed prosthesis replacement, with 1-year follow-up results. After receiving local institutional review board approval, a titanium alloy prosthesis was designed using a computer and manufactured with 3D-printing technology. ...
The goal of this study is to establish the relation between aortic bio prosthesis, patient prosthesis mismatch (PPM) and short-term mortality and morbidity as well as and long-term mortality.
Artificial prosthesis is an important tool to help amputees to gain or partially obtain abled human limb functions. Compared with traditional prosthesis which is only for decoration or merely has feedforward control channel, the perception and feedback function of prosthesis is an important guarantee for its normal use and self-safety. And this includes the information of position, force, texture, roughness, temperature and so on. This paper mainly summarizes the development and current status of artificial...
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the relationship among the denture status, remaining teeth number, and malnutrition in patients with chronic kidney disease. Seventy-three patients (43 men/30 women) who required hemodialysis were included in the study. Weight and height, Kt/V, urea reduction ratio, midweek interdialytic weight gain, ultra filtration volume, and erythropoietin dosage were determined for all patients. Laboratory measurements and predialysis blood samples for biomarkers were co...
In recent years, sutureless aortic valve replacement (SU-AVR) and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) have emerged as viable alternatives to standard surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR) in higher risk patients. We report seven cases in which SU-AVR and TAVR were used as bailout procedures for each other. Between June 2011and August 2018, 626 patients underwent SU-AVR with the Perceval S prosthesis, and 588 patients underwent TAVR at the Montreal Heart Institute. Herein, we report the cases of ...
Penile prosthesis implantation (PPI) is the final stage treatment in erectile dysfunction (ED). In this study, we planned to investigate the effect of PPI application on sexual functionality in the patients and their partners. After taking permission and consent for the study, from 20 male patients who were applied penile prosthesis due to ED between March 2013 and June 2018 and their partners, the couples were included in the study. Patients and partners filled in Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale (ASEX) fo...
Leiomyosarcoma is a rare malignant condition occurring in the maxillofacial region in which the mandible may be affected. Management of this tumor in the mandible may include segmental mandibulectomy, osteocutaneous fibula free-flap reconstruction, endosseous implants, and postoperative radiotherapy. Posttreatment malocclusion can be managed with an overpartial mandibular resection prosthesis. The purpose of this report is to describe the expeditious oral rehabilitation of an oncologic patient with posttrea...
The factors that guarantee the survival of the unicompartmental prosthesis implant seems to be linked to the accurate positioning of the components. The aim of our study is to compare the standard operative technique and the assisted navigation technique to understand if the robotic technology is able to obtain more accurate implants and with a better outcome. In the period between January 2016 and February 2018, in our Clinic, were performed 94 medial unicompartmental knee implants. The implantation of the...
