For practical purposes of tooth regeneration, the challenge remains in obtaining autologous human embryonic dental cells to invent reliable methods to restore teeth of prearranged anatomic shape and size, using cells from post-natal tissues. After several steps, the human ameloblasts transform into human dental enamel. Hence, the human dental epithelial cells are challenging to acquire for the purpose of regeneration because dental epithelial cells have mainly endured cell death proceeding to tooth eruption by transforming into the dental enamel.

This article describes a case of difficult extubation of naso-tracheal tube caused by the cuff inflation channel (pilot tube) encircling the inferior turbinate and logding between the turbinates. To our literary knowledge; no cases have been reported with such unique problem resulting in difficult extubation. This case report highlights that not only the tracheal tube or the cuff, but also the pilot tube can cause problems during extubation, and such an event is difficult to identify.

Before the beginning of the treatment the patients were examined for ocular symptoms of dry eye (ocular pain, burning, and foreign body sensation).
