The reason for this is perhaps most clearly shown by looking at the prevalence of intracranial haemorrhage. This varied from 0.9% to 35% among the 16 studies (Table 2). The variation in the ICH prevalence rates is mainly explained by the variability in the inclusion criteria. Those studies that had low prevalence rates studied every patient that was treated for head injury attending the emergency department, whereas the studies with high prevalence rates used criteria such as ‘all children admitted for observation with loss of consciousness’. A second reason that may have contributed to the heterogeneity is the definition of intracranial haemorrhage used in each study.
Of these, 72% patients had duodenal perforation. 84% patients had a positive X-ray finding and 94% were positive on ultrasound examination (1). Hannan et al (2005) in their study of peptic perforation also reported highest incidence of 34% in the age group of 30-40 years. The mean age of the patients was 41 years (2). Duodenal perforation is a very common and fatal complication in patients of chronic peptic ulcer symptoms with inadequate or no medical treatment.
Statistic data was collecting by using structural questionnaire and individual patient’s interviews. Data was analyzed using Modified Dental Anxiety Scale and SPSS version statistics 20.0. Results: Dental scaling fillings and most important tooth extractions were identified as a common reason to visit dentist. Mostly patients shows there anxiety to a local anesthetic injections .Total 200 patients were examined and studied of which 92 (46%) were males of different age groups and 108 (54%)were females of different age groups. Majority out door patients (OPD) was answered by 55 (27%) and 50 (25%) patients.
Introduction- The purpose of this paper is to discuss a rarest case of hidden maxillary tooth in infra-orbital space following trauma. Pediatric dental injuries leading to traumatic tooth displacement is common in children, although it very rare and sometimes challenging to diagnose and treat traumatically embedded tooth in vital tissue spaces which may lead to serious complications if ignored. Case report- A 4-year old male child was brought with injuries on his face and mouth and swelling over left side of face, resulting from fall. The intra-oral examination revealed absence of all maxillary incisors. The paranasal sinus view showed a vague tooth-like object embedded in the floor of left orbit.
Hypodontia of primary dentition– a rare case report Abstract: Hypodontia of primary dentition is rare. This is a case report of a 4 year old girl child who presented with missing both primary maxillary lateral incisors. The prevalence, possible etiological factors and management of hypodontia is discussed. Key words: Hypodontia, primary dentition, congenitally missing Introduction: The dental literature is abounding with articles describing the congenitally missing permanent teeth; however little has been written describing the congenitally missing primary teeth. According to the widely acknowledged definition as given by Stewart, hypodontia is defined as absence of one or few teeth.
This varied diversity masks the processing problem and hence LD is a difficult to detect. The prevalence of Learning Disability study was conducted by L.M.T.G. Hospital, Sion, Mumbai reveals that 2,225 children visit hospital for certification of any kind of disability and out of which 640 were diagnosed having Specific Learning disability. A study conducted for Indian Council of Medical Research in Bangalore reported that prevalence of LD in 4-16 year old children was 12%. A study in Kerala revealed that nearly 10% of childhood population have language disorder and 8-10% of school population have Learning Disability in one or the other form (1997).
A study by Addy et al 1999 showed the prevalence of recession to be higher on upper canine and first pre-molar teeth and lower canine, first premolar and incisor teeth, in a group of 92 subjects with a mean age of 35 years.13 Some studies show that the prevalence of gingival recession is higher on the left side of the jaw.14 Higher levels of recession have been found in males than females and in Afrocarribeans and African-american than White Caucasians and other racial or ethnic groups.15 Recession is also found in patients with good oral hygiene as well as in patients with poor oral hygiene. In patients with good oral hygiene, recession is located commonly on buccal surfaces and in those with poor oral hygiene other tooth surfaces are also affected.16,17 Studies also show a correlation between calculus and gingival recession. One such study by Van der Weijden et al 1998 shows a higher prevalence of recession on lingual surfaces of lower anterior teeth in the age group of 20-34 years.18 Habits such as lip and tongue piercings are associated with increased prevalence of recession in mandibular anterior teeth.19 In patients with periodontitis attachment loss, bone loss and gingival recession is located mainly interdentally. It has been estimated that approximately 60%
The two cohort groups were given a similar questionnaire. The study found that eighty percent of UBC students and recent graduates have encountered culturally different groups than their own, fifty percent of the eighty percent admitted that their communication was not effective. The study reported that the overall self-perception of cultural competency is complex and multifaceted and implementing cultural competency topics with interactive teaching modalities into dental curricula was highly recommended by study
Each question directed was analyzed for chi square. A number of 11 patients have undergone tooth extraction in maxillary anterior region, 32 patients had tooth extraction in maxillary posterior region, mandibular anterior tooth extraction recorded 21 patients and 36 patients had done mandibular posterior region tooth extraction. Out of 100 patients, 35% opted for removable partial denture (RPD) while 48% opted for fixed partial denture (FPD) and only 17% opted for implants to replace the missing tooth. The choice of prosthesis opted by patients varying from each region. In maxillary anterior region, 2% of patients opted for removable partial denture (RPD), 4% opted for fixed partial denture (FPD) while 5% chose implants.
The study was conducted by surveying 2,199 adolescents from the data of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The adolescents were asked to do a Depression Screener and also were asked questions that consisted to spot the depression signal. The results were that female adolescents tends to usually have higher depression rate than male adolescents. According to the study, girls are more likely to have higher depression rates because their puberty usually occurs earlier than male adolescent (Moreh and O’Lawrence, 2016) “Depressive disorders are more than twice as common in girls as in boys possibly because of differences in coping styles during puberty” (Bhatia & Bhatia, 2007). Puberty usually causes adolescents to enter depression because of the changes they have to adapt to, which usually gives them stress.
Out of Ennis High School’s 345 students class of 2013 graduates, 43 of them were disabled. This means that out of every graduating class, about 12 percent of them are disabled. The disabled students have a graduation rate of over ninety percent, which is two percent higher than the state average for non-disabled. However, Ennis ISD has a tendency to hold back their disabled students, especially in kindergarten, where nearly one-third of them are retained, and first and second grade. These retention rates are way higher than the state averages, but this leads to almost all of them graduating, so this policy must be
Hypertrophic adenoids were graded using the adenoid-to-nasopharyngeal ratio (ANr >0.8). A questionnaire was used to assess the change in chronic rhinitis postoperatively. Improvement in chronic rhinitis was reported in 37 of 47 (79%) children. Patients with allergic rhinitis improved to a higher extent than those with non-allergic rhinitis (12 of 14 [86%] vs. 25 of 33 [76%], respectively), but the difference was not statistically significant. A total of 41 lateral postoperative nasopharyngeal x-rays were obtained.
Moreover, the American Psychological Association (APA) states, “large gaps remain when minority education attainment is compared to that of Caucasian Americans”. For example, Hispanics are the largest minority group in the nation, “in 2005 the high school dropout rate of Latinos was the highest, followed by those of African Americans and American Indians/Alaska Natives (“Ethnic and Racial Minorities and Socioeconomic Status”). White students had a dropout rate of 2%, 6% for Hispanics in the United States while Hispanics Kansans had a 3.6% dropout rate. This fact corroborates a correlation between Hispanics high school dropout rates, lower college enrollment and the Hispanics low SES that contribute to the low rates of Hispanics educational attainment in the State of Kansas and the United
The CDC report from 2003-2005 indicated a total of 64,382 cases of Lyme disease from 46 states, with 93% of cases reported in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin. The median age of patients in reported cases was 41 years, with ages ranging from 0 to 90 years. Men and women were equally represented in reported cases. The CDC identified participation in outdoor activities as a risk factor for infection, and provides educational materials for members of the public to download that provides procedures to reduce the risk of
Roughly 48 percent of parents said that they were nervous or anxious when it came to dental visits, 47 percent of all children studied were found to have dental anxiety as well. Over 50 percent (55 percent) of mothers were found to be nervous when it came to their child’s dental appointment, while fathers were found to be nervous 40 percent of the time (Delta Dental, 2015). On the other hand, mothers found it much easier to take their children to the dentist, even after their own anxieties were taken into account. Nearly 40 percent of children have a true fear of dentists. Several reasons were found by researchers, fear of a painful visit, length of the visit, the possible need for additional work, and/or the child does not like their dental provider.
