Statement of problem:-The maxillary ridge split treatment options, which include different flap techniques with simultaneous implant placement, may help eliminate the current undetermined best choice of treatment plan. Purpose:- The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate outcome of simultaneous implants placement in alveolar ridge split carried out by different flap approaches on marginal bone changes and survival rate. Materials and Methods:- English publications on the subject were searched to select articles up to December 2015. Articles in peer-reviewed journals were searched in an electronic database (MEDLINE, Pub- Med and Cochran). Also, a manual search studies on humans was carried out. Two independent reviewers screened 855 papers. Result:- 843 articles were excluded on the basis of the title and abstract. Full-text articles were obtained for the 12 selected publications. The 12 full texts were assessed by the two reviewers and 3 studies were found fitting for inclusion. Conclusion:- The limited data indicates that the flap design does not affect bone changes and survival rate in ridge split procedure with simultaneous implant placement.

Full mouth implants rehabilitation of a patient with ectodermal dysplasia after 3-Ds ridge augmentation. A clinical report - 01/0

Hussein Gamil Metwaly Elsharkawy


A 22-year-old female presented with hypodontia and severe atrophy of alveolar ridge associated with ectodermal dysplasia, was treated with 3Ds bone augmentation technique and full mouth implants rehabilitation. Bone blocks harvested from the retro molar area to construct adequate bone volume at posterior maxilla and mandible. The vertical and horizontal bone augmentation allowed proper implant placement according to prosthetically-driven implant placement concept. Ten implants were placed. Six in the maxilla and four implants were inserted in the mandible. A cement-retained full mouth metal ceramic FPDs were fabricated. The outcome of the treatment showed that dental implants placed in bone block grafts should be considered as a good treatment modality for patients with ectodermal dysplasia. It also, provided the patient with a prosthesis that enhanced the patient function and esthetics.

Bone changes in ridge split with immediate implant placement: A systematic review - 01/1

Hussein Gamil Metwaly Elsharkawy


Introduction Alveolar width deficiency represents loss of buccal cortical or/and medullary bone. Deficiency of the buccal represents significant difficulty in implant reconstruction. A variety of implant-driven bone augmentation techniques for the deficient alveolar bone have been proposed. Alveolar ridge split is an excellent tool for regaining alveolar ridge width. Material and method Publications on the subject in English were searched to select articles up to June 2015. A systematic review was conducted searching an electronic database (MEDLINE, Pub- Med and Cochran) for articles in pre-reviewed journals concerning studies on humans. Two independent reviewers screened 815 papers. Result A consensus on the studies to be selected was reached after discussion; 804 articles were excluded on the basis of the title and abstract. Kappa score for the selection of the paper was 0.89. Full-text articles were obtained for the 11 selected publications. The 11 full texts were independently assessed by the two reviewers and 3 studies were found to qualify for inclusion. Conclusion Alveolar ridge splitting might be considered a predictable approach that demonstrates a high implant survival rate, adequate horizontal bone gain and minimal postoperative complications. Weak evidence showed the effect of flap design and immediate implantation on marginal bone loss and survival rate.

Prosthetic management of palatal perforation in heroin abuse patient - 01/0

Hussein Gamil Metwaly Elsharkawy


Heroin induced palatal perforation is a very infrequent complication. The authors report in this study a patient who suffered palatal perforation as a result of long time of snorting Heroin. He presented complaining of liquid passage from the oral cavity into the nasal cavities and hypernasality during speech. An immediate transparent acrylic partial obturator was constructed and fitted. It was successful in sealing the defect. However after 4 months an enlargement in the perforation was evident due to failure to cease the habit from the patient. It required the fabrication of new palatal obturator to seal the enlarged perforation and enhance the speech. This report discusses the possible lines of treatment of such complication. The report pointed out the possible prosthetic options. It also, emphasizes the importance of a multidisciplinary approach in management of drug abuse patients and complications encountered in their treatment. The use of palatal obturators improves patient quality of life, avoiding socially embarrassing situations such as the passage of fluids and solids into the nasal passages and maxillary sinuses, or a nasal tone.

A simplified Technique For Orientation Of A Bone Anchored Auricular Prostheses: A Clinical Report - 01/0

Ahmed G. El Sharkawy


Background: A simple technique was presented in this clinical report for orientation of a bone anchored auricular prosthesis Methods: The proposed technique included drawing the intact ear on a transparent celluloid paper or radiographic film and flipping it to the opposite side and relating it to the fixed anatomical features on the face of patient. Results: The drawing by this way provides a simple and easy way to duplicate and transfer the exact size and position of the intact ear to the defect side. Conclusions: This technique provides a simple, safe, inexpensive and time saving yet, an accurate and effective surgical template that orients the craniofacial implants to the confines of the definitive auricular prosthesis. It is indicated for restoration of single missing external ear either in aplasia, injuries and total resection.

Effect of two Different Abutment Designs on Implants Supporting Mandibular Distal Extension Prostheses - 01/0

Single implants may be placed at the distal extension of the denture base to minimize the potential for dislodgement of the bilateral or unilateral distal extension partial dentures. The premise is that this will minimize the risk of potential problems of patient discomfort associated with prosthesis retention and stability from residual ridge resorption Aim: Evaluation of two different abutment designs on marginal bone loss and bone density around implants supporting mandibular distal extension removable partial overdentures Materials & Methods: Thirty partially edentulous patients with unilateral distal extension and modification area in the other side (Kennedy class 2 modifications 1) were selected for this study. Patients were divided into 2 groups, Group 1: received a distal extension removable prosthesis supported by one implant with conventional dome shaped abutment. Group 2: received a distal extension removable prosthesis supported by one implant with a ball and socket abutment. Radiographic evaluation of marginal bone loss and density around all implants in both groups was carried out using digital radiography (Diogra) for one year period every three months interval. Results & Conclusions: After 12 months, group 1 showed statistically significantly higher mean amount of marginal bone loss than group 2. A constant increase in bone density values was denoted in both groups throughout the whole study period although there was no statistically significant difference between bone density values in the 2 groups. It can be concluded that the ball and socket abutments showed less marginal bone loss around implants when compared to conventional dome shaped abutments for implant supported mandibular distal extension partial overdentures.
