Primary tooth resorption and its role in the normal tooth eruption process
Frazier–Bowers SA et al. – The objective of this article is to review the process of permanent tooth eruption and primary tooth resorption in the context of the major theories of tooth eruption. Management of isolated ankylosis is definitively treated by extraction of the offending tooth while eruption failure from a genetic defect may result in no treatment at all or multiple single tooth osteotomies. A complete understanding of the clinical presentation and biological mechanisms underlying eruption and eruption disorders will facilitate the best diagnosis and patient management of difficult clinical cases....
Endodontic Topics, 12/10/2012Pulp preservation in immature permanent teeth
Bogen G et al. – New treatment strategies for direct pulp capping and pulpotomy have shown promising potentials for improved outcomes in immature teeth with extensive caries, traumatic pulp exposures, or anatomical anomalies. Preservation and protection of the dental pulp in developing teeth promote root maturation and extend tooth survivability by postponing or even preventing more complex endodontic and restorative care. MTA and new hydraulic calcium silicate cements provide biocompatible environments that predictably promote reparative dentin bridge formation when placed under properly bonded and sealed composite restorations. Hydraulic calcium silicate cements appear to provide a promising future for the preservation of pulpal integrity in immature teeth when used with modified and conservative treatment protocols....

Childhood physical abuse as a common risk factor for depression and thyroid dysfunction in the earlier postpartum
Plaza A et al. – Childhood abuse is a powerful risk factor for developing postpartum depression in adulthood, and recently it has been associated to thyroid dysfunction in postpartum depressive women. The findings suggest that women with history of childhood physical abuse are particularly at–risk for thyroid dysfunction and depressive symptomatology 24–48h after delivery. The assessment of childhood abuse in the perinatal period is important to identify women at–risk for physical and mental health problems in this period.
Psychiatry Research, 12/14/2012Reduced exercise capacity in Greek children with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome
Damianidou L et al. – Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common disease that is increasingly recognized among pediatric population. The exercise capacity of adults with OSAS has been demonstrated to be impaired, but there are no data about pediatric exercise response. The present study demonstrates that young patients with OSAS, even with mild OSAS, had reduced exercise capacity as compared to control group.
