Clinically oriented anatomy / Keith L. Moore, Arthur F. Dalley II, Anne M.R. Agur.

D 611 M82

Clinically Oriented Anatomy provides first-year medical students with the clinically oriented anatomical information that they need in study and practice. This best-selling anatomy textbook is renowned for its comprehensive coverage of anatomy, presented as it relates to the practice of medicine, dentistry, and physical therapy. The 7th edition features a NEW-AND-IMPROVED ART PROGRAM to reinforce its position as the primary resource serving the needs of anatomy students during both the basic science and the clinical phases of their studies.

 

Esthetic & restorative dentistry : material selection & technique / [Douglas A. Terry, Willi Geller].

D 617.627 T32 a

With new photographic techniques including ring flash and bilateral flash, new cases on composite resin restoration and porcelain inlays, and new techniques such as restoring the anterior alveolar ridge deficiency using stratified porcelain buildup, this second edition of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry explores many facets of esthetic and restorative dentistry, including biomaterials, laboratory technology, operative dentistry, prosthodontics, periodontics, and implant dentistry. Each chapter begins with a materials science introduction to the topic, followed by clinical applications and procedures illustrated with exquisite images.

 

 

Oral implantology surgical procedures checklist / Louie Al-Faraje.

D 617.674 A38 o

Just as checklists used in the aviation industry dramatically reduce the incidence of human error and provide higher safety and success margins, implant surgery should start with a thorough presurgery check by the surgeon. Surgeons have relied solely on memory for these checks, but the complexity of the information regarding the procedures of today makes it difficult to properly deliver it to patients in a consistent, correct, and safe manner. This checklist booklet outlines the proper sequence for surgical procedures, details the setups for necessary instruments, provides postoperative instructions, and even includes a clear roadmap to follow in emergency scenarios that might be encountered during or after surgery. It offers the implant surgeon a standardized approach to ensure that surgical procedures run smoothly and that an extra margin of safety is respected at all times. A built-in collapsible stand facilitates viewing in the treatment room. Washable pages make this book usable even in sterile environments, and when written on in ballpoint pen, the ink can be easily erased with an alcohol wipe.

Immigration in the United States: New Economic, Social, Political Landscapes with Legislative Reform on the Horizon
Immigration has contributed to many of the economic, social, and political processes that are foundational to the United States as a nation since the first newcomers arrived over 400 years ago. After brushes with immigration reform that began in 2001 and continued in 2006 and 2007, the United States seems to be on the threshold of overhauling the legal immigration system in the most substantive way since 1965. This article provides a comprehensive overview of major legislation and events affecting US immigration throughout history, legal and illegal immigration flows, postrecession immigration trends, and more.

Top Five Reasons Why Africa Should Be a Priority for the United States

Released in March 2013, this report from the Brookings Institution’s African Growth Initiative provides compelling information on why the African continent should be a public policy priority for the United States. The report is divided into five short sections, including “China in Africa: Implications for U.S. Competition and Diplomacy,” “Transforming the U.S.-African Commercial Relationship,” and “Advancing Peace and Security in Africa.” It’s a timely work that sets out a cogent argument and will be of particular interest to public policy scholars, journalists, and others interested in global politics.

Title: Stem cell approach for maxillary sinus grafting in atrophic maxilla

 

Abstract:

Maxillary sinus grafting is required in atrophic maxilla to facilitate dental implant placement.  Autogenous bone is a standard grafting material but bone harvesting procedure is traumatic to patients.  Bone substitute is used as an alternative but bone formation is limited.  Mesenchymal stem/stomal cells (MSC) supplement to promote bone regeneration was introduced to provide a cellular-based tissue engineering method.

 

This study aimed to evaluate the bone regeneration capacity of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) in maxillary sinus grafting.  Quantitative and qualitative analysis of bone marrow aspirate was performed before and after concentration. Animal study in rabbits’ maxillary sinus was carried out to compare 4 grafting materials.   A pilot human study was also conducted.  The results showed that bone marrow aspirate can be concentrated by a one-step centrifuge method with confirmation of the presence of MSCs having differentiation capabilities.  In addition, BMAC transplantation is a worthy therapeutic option for bone grafting.
