ABSTRACT

Introduction and objectives: Chronic inflammatory gingival enlargement also called as chronic hyperplastic gingivitis is an enlargement of the gingiva as a result of chronic inflammation due to local or systemic factors; most important local factor appears to be the dental plaque and calculus. This case report aimed to present the clinical, histopathological features and treatment of inflammatory gingival enlargement which disturbed the esthetics and masticatory function of the patient.

Materials and methods: A 34-year-old male patient reported with a chief complaint of swelling and bleeding in the gums of teeth in maxillary and mandibular anterior region. The enlargement was firm and fibrotic accompanied by an inflammatory component probably due to inability to maintain adequate personal oral hygiene. Periodontal surgical therapy was performed for good esthetic outcome.

Results and interpretation: No recurrence was reported 6 months postsurgery. The importance of patient motivation and compliance during and after therapy as a critical factor in the success of treatment has also been highlighted through this case report.

Conclusion: Gingival overgrowth interferes with mastication and speech of the patient. A thorough diagnosis and treatment planning is essential.

Keywords: Inflammation, Gingival overgrowth, Gingival Diseasen, Gingivectomy

ABSTRACT

Type II diabetes mellitus (DM) is the most common endocrine disorder and a leading cause of morbidity and mortality across the world. Long-standing diabetes and a poor glycemic control are the major factors which contribute to the development of various microvascular complications of diabetes. Microvascular changes in kidneys lead to microalbuminuria, which may further lead to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) if left untreated. Elevated serum uric acid level has been recognized as a marker of endothelial dysfunction which contributes to the development of microvascular changes in various organs. The main objective of the present study was to assess the association of serum uric acid and urine microalbumin levels with glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in type II DM patients. One hundred diagnosed cases of type II DM were enrolled for the study. Blood samples were collected and estimated for fasting blood sugar, serum uric acid, and HbA1c. Also, 24-hour urine samples were collected and analyzed for microalbumin. A positive association (r = 0.203) was observed between HbA1c and serum uric acid. The study also suggested a positive association between glycemic control and microalbuminuria (r = 0.237) in diabetic patients. A strong positive association was also observed between uric acid and urine microalbumin levels (r = 0.338). Findings of the study, therefore, recommend that development of microvascular complications in type II DM patients can be averted by adopting dietary control and healthy lifestyle changes. Strict glycemic control and lowering of serum uric acid levels can be helpful in minimizing the risk of developing nephropathy and its progression toward ESRD.

Keywords: Diabetes mellitus, Glycemic control, Glycosylated hemoglobin, Microalbuminuria, Nephropathy, Uric acid.

ABSTRACT

The use of porcelain laminate veneers to solve esthetic and/or functional problems has been shown to be a valid management option, especially in the anterior esthetic zone. In cases when patients decline orthodontic treatment, adhesively bonded porcelain veneers are a reliable treatment option to modify the appearance of tooth position and form, to close diastema or cervical embrasures, or to change the tooth shade. Porcelain veneers are one of the best corrective options available considering biological, functional, mechanical, and esthetic points of view. The present case report is about discolored anterior teeth in a healthy dentition by means of sectional porcelain veneers simply cemented onto the natural teeth and with minimal tooth preparation.

Keywords: Esthetics, Porcelain veneers, Smile design.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: Epilepsy is a significant public health problem in the world today. The social stigma and impact on quality of life (QOL) may pose a bigger challenge than the clinical severity. In India, there are not many studies using quality of life in epilepsy (QOLIE-31) questionnaire to study the QOL in epileptic patients. This study may be useful in planning the management of patients with epilepsy. So, our study was conducted to determine the level of health-related QOL (HRQOL) of patients with epilepsy in a teaching hospital.

Materials and methods: This was a cross-sectional, questionnaire- based study conducted in a teaching hospital from March to October 2015. The subjects included both male and female adults of at least 18 years of age with a diagnosis of epilepsy, which was present for minimum 1 year. The QOLIE- 31 was used for collecting data on HRQOL.

Results: Totally, 70 patients with epilepsy were included in the study. The standard deviation (mean) total score of QOLIE- 31 in our study was 60.46. There was a significant difference in the total score of QOLIE-31 within the monotherapy and polytherapy group as the total score of QOLIE-31 was better in monotherapy group as compared with polytherapy group.

Conclusion: The study revealed that patients who were on a single drug (monotherapy) had a much better QOL than the patients on more than one drug (polytherapy).

Keywords: Monotherapy, Polytherapy, Quality of life in epilepsy questionnaire, Seizure worry.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Scrub typhus is an acute, febrile zoonosis, caused by an obligate intracellular bacterium Orientia tsutsugamushi. The disease is of greatest public health importance in rural areas of Asia and in Western Pacific Islands. The clinical manifestations of the disease range from subclinical disease to an organ failure. The various complications known with this disease are jaundice, renal failure, pneumonitis, acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock, myocarditis, vasculitis, and meningoencephalitis. The complications of scrub typhus usually develop after the first week of illness.

Case report: We report a case of a 70-year-old female, farmer by occupation, who presented with acute febrile illness and was diagnosed as scrub typhus. She subsequently developed vasculitis, which resulted in pan digital gangrene. After thorough workup for digital gangrene, it was established that scrub typhus is the cause of gangrene in this patient.

Conclusion: Thus, our inference is that vasculitis might be seen in very few cases of scrub typhus and it may progress up to gangrene of digits. Only one such case has been reported, thus making it a very rare phenomenon.

Keywords: Digital gangrene, Scrub typhus, Vasculitis.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The aim of the study was to identify the microorganisms associated with the chronic discharging ears and their antimicrobial susceptibility pattern.

Materials and methods: A total of 251 samples of ear swabs were received at Mahatma Gandhi Medical College & Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. Pus samples were taken from external auditory canal using sterile cotton swabs and then cultured on different microbiological media. Antibiotic sensitivity was tested and interpreted by method according to Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute standards.

Results: Out of 251 samples received, 135 (53.78%) samples had growth. The microbiology of these 135 samples was studied. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was the major organism isolated from 88 samples followed by Staphylococcus aureus (37), and other coliforms (10). Drug susceptibility of P. aeruginosa showed that colistin was active against all isolates followed by piperacillin-tazobactam and imipenem. Approximately 60% S. aureus isolates were methicillin-resistant S. aureus. Vancomycin, linezolid, and teicoplanin were 100% sensitive.

Conclusion: From the current study, it was concluded that P. aeruginosa is the potential cause of ear-associated infections. All isolates of P. aeruginosa were susceptible to colistin, and S. aureus was susceptible to vancomycin, linezolid, and teicoplanin.

Keywords: Chronic suppurative otitis media, methicillin-resistant S. aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus,

ABSTRACT

Dislocation is the complete separation of the articular surfaces of a joint and fixation in an abnormal position. In case of mandibular dislocation, the normal anatomic relationship of the mandibular condyle with the glenoid fossa disrupts and condyle seats in an unfavorable position which is mostly anterior. Dislocation can be of acute and chronic subtypes. Acute dislocation is once in a lifetime event, but chronic dislocations are painful and distressing to the patient. There are various nonsurgical and surgical treatment options available in the literature but the most sought after method is eminectomy. A case of chronic dislocation treated surgically with eminectomy is reported here.

Keywords: Condylar dislocation, Eminectomy, Subluxation.

ABSTRACT

Osseointegration, the direct contact between living bone and the surface of load-carrying implant, is imperative for the long-term success of dental implants. There is no distinct relationship between osseointegration and defined surface characteristics, since a great number of different surfaces achieve osseointegration. However, the rate, extent, and the strength of this connection may be dependent on the surface characteristics of the implant. The aim of this article was to review the literature on the various approaches available to modify the bone-implant interface.

Keywords: Dental implant, Surface modifications, Topography.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Excessive static and dynamic muscle work/ action of the piriformis causes Piriformis syndrome (PS). The sciatic nerve runs on bilateral side of posterior hip or thigh just closed to piriformis muscles or sometimes just passes through it. In case of PS, patients feel sharp radiating pain and paresthesia and muscle weakness in lower quadrants of limbs including low back, hip, and ankle.

Aims and objectives: The aim of the study was to compare and observe the effect of light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (LASER) therapy and ultrasound therapy in case of PS. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of laser therapy for the physiotherapy rehabilitation to restore range of motion (ROM) of lower limb and decrease pain and disability in PS.

Materials and methods: Thirty patients were taken for this study. The mean age in group I and group II were 28.2 ± 5.116 and 29.93 ± 4.793 respectively, and the patients were referred from orthopedic outpatient physiotherapy department of Mahatma Gandhi Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. The duration of study was of 3 weeks. Baseline measurements of pain intensity, lower extremity functional disability, and ROM of all the subjects were measured using the visual analog scale (VAS), Lower Extremity Functional Scale, and goniometer respectively, and recorded as per test data for statistical analysis.

Results and conclusion: The results have shown that clinically there is a significant difference in the subjects treated with low-level laser and ultrasound efficient in treating pain, ROM, and function in subjects with PS. Between-the-group comparison of values of VAS readings for pain was found to be statistically significant (0.0001) for ROM, but was not found statistically significant for function.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and its more severe form “premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)” is a common yet underdiagnosed disorder. It is characterized by anxiety, mood changes, and several somatic symptoms in the last week of the luteal phase and began to remit within a few days after the onset of the follicular phase.

Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of PMS and PMDD among females at a tertiary care center and evaluate the associated symptomatology, sociodemographic variables, and functional impairment.

Materials and methods: In an observational, cross-sectional study, 150 randomly selected females (18-30 years) were evaluated for menstrual history after sociodemographic profiling. Structured Clinical Interview for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-IV (DSM-IV)-TR (SCID)-PMDD was applied among those who were positive on premenstrual symptoms screening tool. Statistical analysis was done using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, version 14.0.

Results: The prevalence of PMS was 21.33%. Moderate to severe PMS was 14% and PMDD was 7.33% according to DSM-IV-TR criteria. Fatigue/lack of energy, decreased interest in work were the most commonly reported symptoms. Decreased school/work efficiency and productivity was the commonest form of functional impairment. Increased body mass index, onset of symptoms since menarche, duration of premenstrual symptoms, menstrual cramps, and family history showed statistically significant association with PMS/PMDD.

Conclusion: Premenstrual syndrome is fairly common and causes significant functional impairment. Screening females in relevant age group for its symptomatology may aid in early detection and better management.

Keywords: Premenstrual dysphoric disorder, Premenstrual symptom, Premenstrual syndrome.
