- Predictors of Class I epilepsy surgery outcome in tumour-related chronic temporal lobe epilepsy in adults. [Journal Article]Neurol Neurochir Pol 2019NN
- CONCLUSIONS: The most appropriate management of tumour-related chronic temporal lobe epilepsy in adults appears to be tai-lored temporal lobe resection including tumour and hippocampal complex removal. Surgical treatment of tumoural temporal lobe epilepsy demonstrates excellent results in terms of seizure improvement, especially in patients with glioneuronal tumours.
- Robotic Orthogonal Implantation of Responsive Neurostimulation (RNS) Depth Electrodes in the Mesial Temporal Lobe: Case Series. [Journal Article]Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2019ON
- CONCLUSIONS: The initial experience using an orthogonal approach for depth electrode placement for RNS implantation was described. The potential advantages may include better safety, accuracy, and positioning in comparison to a transoccipital approach.
- Effect of medicaments used in endodontic regeneration on the morphological characteristics of bovine radicular dentin: Experimental immature tooth model. [Journal Article]Microsc Res Tech 2019MR
- The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different combinations of irrigating solutions and intracanal dressings in the pretreatment of bovine radicular dentin, using an experimental immature tooth model. Eighty healthy bovine teeth, simulated with incomplete rhizogenesis, were randomly distributed according to the protocols of root canal dentin pretreatment for a regenerative endo…
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different combinations of irrigating solutions and intracanal dressings in the pretreatment of bovine radicular dentin, using an experimental immature tooth model. Eighty healthy bovine teeth, simulated with incomplete rhizogenesis, were randomly distributed according to the protocols of root canal dentin pretreatment for a regenerative endodontic procedure (n = 10): Control (irrigation with distilled water); SH (irrigation with 1.5% Sodium Hypochlorite); EDTA (irrigation with 17% EDTA); SH/EDTA (irrigation with 1.5% SH + 17% EDTA); SH/CH/EDTA (irrigation with 1.5% SH + calcium hydroxide paste +17% EDTA); SH/MTAP/EDTA (irrigation with 1.5% SH + modified triple antibiotic paste + EDTA 17%); SH/TAP/EDTA (irrigation with 1.5% SH + triple antibiotic paste +17% EDTA) and SH/DAP/EDTA (irrigation with 1.5% SH + double antibiotic paste + EDTA 17%). After the completion of the protocol, the demineralization, the exposure of collagen fibers, and the dentin erosion was evaluated under scanning electron microscopy (SEM), by applying a score system (1-3) to classify the observed features. Statistical analysis was performed (Kruskal-Wallis and Dunn Multiple Comparison tests-p < .05). SH/TAP/EDTA and SH/DAP/EDTA groups presented the highest rates of demineralization in both the coronal and middle thirds of the root (p < .05). In the SH/MTAP/EDTA group, the samples presented moderate demineralization. The samples from the SH/CH/EDTA group presented similar findings to the control group (p < .05). Conventional triple antibiotic (TAP) and double antibiotic (DAP) pastes promoted more pronounced morphological changes on the dentin surface.
- Aortic Dissection: An Easily Missed Diagnosis when Pain Doesn't Hold the Stage. [Journal Article]Am J Case Rep 2019; 20:1788-1792AJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Although it is a rare cause of transient stroke or peripheral nerve ischemia, AD should be quickly recognized as a potential cause of new-onset neurological manifestations.
- Clinical characteristics of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures across the lifespan: An international retrospective study. [Journal Article]Epilepsy Behav 2019; 102:106705EB
- CONCLUSIONS: While PNES may present at any age, there appear to be notable differences across the lifespan with respect to some of the clinical characteristics. Further international and cross-cultural studies may reveal other interesting characteristics of PNES.
- Clinicopathological and immunohistochemical features of the oral lymphoepithelial cyst: a multicenter study. [Journal Article]J Oral Pathol Med 2019JO
- CONCLUSIONS: Lymphoepithelial cyst is an uncommon lesion of the oral cavity. The present study offers the largest sample of OLEC for which clinical, demographic, histopathological, and immunohistochemical features were evaluated. The clinical and demographic findings were similar to those described in previous reports, but the microscopic analyses revealed interesting aspects of the cystic epithelium and the lymphocytic inflammatory infiltrate in OLEC.

- CONCLUSIONS: RC had a negative impact on the QoL of HNC patients.
- Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures in adults with epilepsy: A tertiary hospital based study. [Journal Article]Int J Neurosci 2019; :1-17IJ
- CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of PNES among adults with epilepsy is ∼5%. They are frequently misdiagnosed and treated as epilepsy. Specialist neurologists are more comfortable to diagnose patients with PNES. The multidisciplinary neurology and psychiatric assessments will help in the patient's therapeutic plan.
- Sinonasal melanoma: a systematic review of the prognostic factors. [Review]Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019IJ
- The objective was to evaluate the available published data on sinonasal melanoma and analyse its clinical features, treatment modalities, and prognostic factors. An electronic search was undertaken in March 2018 in multiple databases. Eligibility criteria included publications with sufficient clinical, histological, and immunohistochemical information to confirm the diagnosis. Seventy-three publi…
The objective was to evaluate the available published data on sinonasal melanoma and analyse its clinical features, treatment modalities, and prognostic factors. An electronic search was undertaken in March 2018 in multiple databases. Eligibility criteria included publications with sufficient clinical, histological, and immunohistochemical information to confirm the diagnosis. Seventy-three publications (439 cases) were included. The lesion was more prevalent in females than in males. There was a higher prevalence in the seventh and eighth decades of life. The lesions mainly presented as epistaxis and commonly involved the nasal cavity. Age (>67.6 years; P=0.0012), primary location (middle turbinate; P=0.0112), disease stage (advanced disease stage; P=0.0026), treatment (radiotherapy; P=0.0111), recurrence (recurrence presented; P=0.0137), and distant metastasis (distant metastasis presented; P=0.0011) were independently associated with a lower survival rate. Recurrence was significantly correlated with age (>67.6 years; P=0.0021), sex (males tended to present a higher recurrence rate than females; P=0.0051), disease stage (stages III and IV presented a higher recurrence rate than stages I and II; P=0.0331), and histological type (amelanotic lesions presented a higher index of recurrence than melanotic lesions; P=0.0095). In conclusion, sinonasal melanoma is a neoplasm with a poor prognosis, presenting a 30.69% possibility of survival after 5 years.
