Diseases or disorders of the muscles of the head and neck, with special reference to the masticatory muscles. The most notable examples are TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS and TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME.
An occlusion resulting in overstrain and injury to teeth, periodontal tissue, or other oral structures.
The cat family in the order CARNIVORA comprised of muscular, deep-chested terrestrial carnivores with a highly predatory lifestyle.
Muscles arising in the zygomatic arch that close the jaw. Their nerve supply is masseteric from the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
The force applied by the masticatory muscles in dental occlusion.
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)
The largest and strongest bone of the FACE constituting the lower jaw. It supports the lower teeth.
The SKELETON of the HEAD including the FACIAL BONES and the bones enclosing the BRAIN.
A symptom complex consisting of pain, muscle tenderness, clicking in the joint, and limitation or alteration of mandibular movement. The symptoms are subjective and manifested primarily in the masticatory muscles rather than the temporomandibular joint itself. Etiologic factors are uncertain but include occlusal dysharmony and psychophysiologic factors.
A masticatory muscle whose action is closing the jaws.
An articulation between the condyle of the mandible and the articular tubercle of the temporal bone.
The act and process of chewing and grinding food in the mouth.
Muscular pain in numerous body regions that can be reproduced by pressure on TRIGGER POINTS, localized hardenings in skeletal muscle tissue. Pain is referred to a location distant from the trigger points. A prime example is the TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME.
An intermediate stage between polytheism and monotheism, which assumes a "Great Spirit", with lesser deities subordinated. With the beginnings of shamanism there was the advent of the medicine man or witch doctor, who assumed a supervisory relation to disease and its cure. Formally, shamanism is a religion of Ural-Altaic peoples of Northern Asia and Europe, characterized by the belief that the unseen world of gods, demons, ancestral spirits is responsive only to shamans. The Indians of North and South America entertain religious practices similar to the Ural-Altaic shamanism. The word shaman comes from the Tungusic (Manchuria and Siberia) saman, meaning Buddhist monk. The shaman handles disease almost entirely by psychotherapeutic means; he frightens away the demons of disease by assuming a terrifying mien. (From Garrison, An Introduction to the History of Medicine, 4th ed, p22; from Webster, 3d ed)
A plate of fibrous tissue that divides the temporomandibular joint into an upper and lower cavity. The disc is attached to the articular capsule and moves forward with the condyle in free opening and protrusion. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p92)
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.

Compression of the ULNAR NERVE in the cubital tunnel, which is formed by the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle, humeral-ulnar aponeurosis, and medial ligaments of the elbow. This condition may follow trauma or occur in association with processes which produce nerve enlargement or narrowing of the canal. Manifestations include elbow pain and PARESTHESIA radiating distally, weakness of ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and loss of sensation over the hypothenar region, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p43)
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)
A syndrome associated with inflammation of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical features include severe pain in the shoulder region which may be accompanied by MUSCLE WEAKNESS and loss of sensation in the upper extremity. This condition may be associated with VIRUS DISEASES; IMMUNIZATION; SURGERY; heroin use (see HEROIN DEPENDENCE); and other conditions. The term brachial neuralgia generally refers to pain associated with brachial plexus injury. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1355-6)
Ulnar neuropathies caused by mechanical compression of the nerve at any location from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its terminations in the hand. Common sites of compression include the retroepicondylar groove, cubital tunnel at the elbow (CUBITAL TUNNEL SYNDROME), and Guyon's canal at the wrist. Clinical features depend on the site of injury, but may include weakness or paralysis of wrist flexion, finger flexion, and ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and impaired sensation over the ulnar aspect of the hand, fifth finger, and ulnar half of the ring finger. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p43)
Congenital structural abnormalities and deformities of the musculoskeletal system.
Conditions characterized by pain involving an extremity or other body region, HYPERESTHESIA, and localized autonomic dysfunction following injury to soft tissue or nerve. The pain is usually associated with ERYTHEMA; SKIN TEMPERATURE changes, abnormal sudomotor activity (i.e., changes in sweating due to altered sympathetic innervation) or edema. The degree of pain and other manifestations is out of proportion to that expected from the inciting event. Two subtypes of this condition have been described: type I; (REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY) and type II; (CAUSALGIA). (From Pain 1995 Oct;63(1):127-33)
The part of a limb or tail following amputation that is proximal to the amputated section.
Coordination of nursing services by various nursing care personnel under the leadership of a professional nurse. The team may consist of a professional nurse, nurses' aides, and the practical nurse.

Breathing obstruction in relation to craniofacial and dental arch morphology in 4-year-old children. (1/8)

The prevalence of breathing obstruction was determined in a cohort of 4-year-old children. Craniofacial morphology was studied in obstructed children and compared with data from a control group of 4-year-old children with ideal occlusion. Dental arch morphology was compared in obstructed and non-obstructed children in the group. Parents of 95.5 per cent of the study base of 644 children answered a questionnaire concerning their child's nocturnal behaviour and related questions. The 48 children who, based on parental report, snored every night or stopped breathing when snoring (the 'snoring group'), showed a higher rate of disturbed sleep, mouth-breathing, and a history of throat infections as compared with the rest of the cohort. These children were examined by both an orthodontist and an otorhinolaryngologist and, when indicated, they were also monitored in a sleep laboratory. Twenty-eight of the children were diagnosed as having a breathing obstruction (4.3 per cent of the cohort) and six children (0.9 per cent) had sleep apnoea (mean apnoea-hypopnoea index of 17.3), using the same definition as that for adults. Cephalometric values among the obstructed children differed from those of a Swedish sample of the same age with ideal occlusion. Thy had a smaller cranial base angle and a lower ratio of posterior/anterior total face height. Small, but not significant differences were seen for NSL-ML and NL-ML. Compared with 48 asymptomatic children from the same cohort, the obstructed children had a narrower maxilla, a deeper palatal height, and a shorter lower dental arch. In addition, the prevalence of lateral crossbite was significantly higher among the obstructed children.  (+info)

Craniomandibular status and function in patients with habitual snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea after nocturnal treatment with a mandibular advancement splint: a 2-year follow-up. (2/8)

The aim of the investigation was to evaluate the status and function of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and masticatory system in patients with habitual snoring and obstructive apnoea after 2 years nocturnal treatment with a mandibular advancement splint. Thirty-two patients participated in the study, ranging from 43.0 to 79.8 years of age (mean 54.4 years, SD 8.78) at the start of treatment. All patients had been referred from the ENT department for treatment with a mandibular advancement splint. The acrylic splint advanced the mandible 50-70 per cent of maximal protrusion, opened 5 mm vertically, and was used 6-8 hours per night and 5-7 nights per week. Overjet, overbite, and molar relationship were measured on dental casts. The patients were asked to answer a questionnaire concerning symptoms of craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD). They were also clinically examined in a standardized manner, including registration of range of mandibular movements, TMJ sounds, pain on movement, and palpatory tenderness of the TMJ and the masticatory muscles. None of the patients showed more than five symptoms of dysfunction either at the start of or after 2 years of treatment. A decrease in the frequency of headache was found for nine of those 18 patients that reported headache (P = 0.004). A minor, but significant decrease in overjet and overbite was found and the molar relationship was also changed. It was concluded that 2 years' treatment with a mandibular advancement splint had no adverse effects on the craniomandibular status and function, but the observed occlusal changes requires further evaluation.  (+info)

Craniomandibular osteopathy in a bullmastiff. (3/8)

A 6-month-old bullmastiff was presented with bilateral painful swellings of the mandible. Craniomandibular osteopathy was diagnosed based on skull radiographs and histological findings from bone biopsies. Treatment consisted of meloxicam to alleviate the pain.

Efficacy and co-morbidity of oral appliances in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea: a systematic review. (4/8)

The Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) is a common sleep-related breathing disorder characterized by repetitive obstructions of the upper airway during sleep. Modification of pharyngeal patency by Oral Appliance (OA) therapy has been suggested as an alternative to various treatment modalities for OSAHS. To determine the evidence base with respect to the efficacy and co-morbidity of OA therapy in OSAHS, we conducted a systematic review of the available literature. Primary outcome measures were the reduction in number of upper-airway obstructions and co-morbidity related to the craniomandibular or craniofacial complex, respectively. Eligible studies regarding efficacy were independently assessed by two assessors using a quality assessment scale. Effect sizes of methodologically sound studies were calculated. In identical interventions, effect sizes were pooled with the use of a random-effects model. Given the scarcity of controlled studies related to co-morbidity, appraisal was confined to a description of eligible studies. Sixteen controlled trials related to efficacy were identified. With respect to the primary outcome measure, OA therapy was clearly more effective than control therapy (pooled effect size, -0.96; 95% confidence interval [CI], -1.49 to -0.42) and possibly more effective than uvulopalatopharyngoplasty. Although patients generally preferred OA therapy, improvement of respiratory variables, such as the number of upper-airway obstructions, was usually better in Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy (pooled effect size, 0.83; 95% CI, 0.59 to 1.06). Moreover, specific aspects related to OA design may influence patient-perceived efficacy and preference. Twelve patient-series and one controlled trial related to co-morbidity were identified. Analysis of the data suggests that OA therapy may have adverse effects on the craniomandibular and craniofacial complex. Although CPAP is apparently more effective and adverse effects of OA treatment have been described, it can be concluded that OA therapy is a viable treatment for, especially, mild to moderate OSAHS. Controlled studies addressing the specific indication and co-morbidity of OA therapy are warranted.  (+info)

Oral health status and health-related quality of life: a systematic review. (5/8)

This study was conducted in order to identify the literature on oral health status and health-related QOL, review the findings systematically, and assess the association between them. We performed a literature search of reports published between January 1973 and June 2004, using five databases including MEDLINE. Only studies that used validated generic health-related QOL instruments were selected. The reviewers evaluated selected articles independently and resolved disagreements by consensus. A total of 1,726 articles were retrieved and seven were selected for the review; five observational studies and two intervention studies. Four studies showed significant associations between oral health status and health-related QOL. Temporomandibular disorders were highly associated with reduced health-related QOL. Poor oral status linked to both craniomandibular and cervical spinal pain was associated with increased impairment of health-related QOL. Dissatisfaction with the teeth and mouth, and a sensation of dry mouth contributed to reduce health-related QOL. Providing edentulous patients with implant-supported full dentures contributed to improve health-related QOL. Assessment of health-related QOL in relation to oral health with validated instruments remains insufficient. The present findings suggest that oral health status could affect health-related QOL in some settings; however, further evidence is needed to support this interpretation.  (+info)

A survey of craniomandibular disorders in 500 19-year-olds. (8/8)

This study examines the development of signs and symptoms of craniomandibular disorders (CMD), and some effects of orthodontic treatment from the age of 12-19 years of age. The data is drawn from a special sample of adolescents recruited at 11 years of age by random stratified sampling to contain a high prevalence of malocclusions of particular orthodontic interest. The sample does not reflect malocclusion in a normal population. The prevalence of frequent headache and TMJ disorders shows a major increase from 12 to 15 years of age. From 15 to 19 years of age, there is some increase in the prevalence of TMJ disorders in girls, but altogether the prevalence of signs and symptoms of CMD is much more stable. When the data from subjects who received orthodontic treatment were compared with data from subjects who had not received orthodontic treatment, only small differences were found.  (+info)

Bullmastiffs are a large working breed originating in Britain in the mid 1800s as estate guardians to ward off poachers. They were bred by gamekeepers for strength, size and speed using a cross of the tough, heavy and aggressive Bulldog of the 19th century with the large, strong, less aggressive Mastiff.[4] As a result, the Bullmastiff is known as the Gamekeepers Night Dog. The preferred color, by gamekeepers, was brindle, as this color works as a more effective camouflage, especially at night.[5]. The Bullmastiff breed was deemed pure by the English Kennel Club in 1924, with a genetic background of approximately 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog.[4] In 1934, the AKC recognized the Bullmastiff.[3] The first standard for the breed was approved in 1935.[6] The standard has undergone several revisions since then; the most current version is available on the AKC website.[7]. In 1928, the diamond mining company De Beers imported Bullmastiffs to South Africa to guard the mines.[8]. ...

The development of the Bullmastiff is recent compared to its ancestor, the Mastiff, which is one of the oldest breeds in Britain. As early as 1791, there were some references to the Bullmastiff and to crosses between the Bulldog and Mastiff. There is little evidence to support the crossing of the breeds at that time, though.. The history of the Bullmastiff is most often associated with the late 1800s, a time when the violent surge of poachers threatened the lives of gamekeepers. The gamekeepers, in turn, required a strong and daring companion that would quietly wait until a poacher arrived with his dog, overcome the dog, and attack when commanded. The Bulldog was not large enough and the Mastiff was not swift enough, so gamekeepers crossed the two breeds to create a perfect dog, naming it the Gamekeepers Night Dog. The dark brindle color of the mix was preferred, as it blended with the night.. With the dogs rising popularity, several estate owners selected it to work as a sentry. Many ...
When the lower teeth get trapped inside and behind the narrow upper arch of teeth they narrow and crowd as well, pushing the lower jaw back. Because there is not enough room for the tongue within the narrow arches of teeth, the sides of the tongue end up resting between the upper and lower back teeth preventing the lower back teeth from fully erupting. When this happens, the jaws remain over-closed causing further crowding of the lower front teeth, shortening of the jaw closing muscles, and, potentially, muscle pain, teeth clenching and grinding, and compression of the jaw joints (TMJ). Ultimately, the back of the tongue ends up forced into the throat area which can result in a breathing obstruction, upper airway resistance syndrome, snoring, and/or obstructive sleep apnea, in addition to TMJ and posture problems.. ...
Introduction. Eva Sorensen The Effects Of Smoking On The Lungs Smoking has been linked with a number of serious illnesses, such as lung cancer and cancer of the oral cavity, oesophagus and larynx. Tobacco smoking is responsible for nearly all cases of a chronic breathing obstruction known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD. COPD includes diseases like emphysema and chronic bronchitis, and leaves sufferers breathless and unable to do many activities. Cigarette smoke has chemicals that can make normal cells change into cancer cells. Some of the contents are: * Nicotine - the addictive drug in tobacco, which increases the smokers blood pressure and heart rate. Concentrated nicotine is a deadly poison and is widely used as insecticide. * Carbon Monoxide - a poisonous gas produced by burning tobacco, which is absorbed into the bloodstream where it decreases the amount oxygen available to body, and forces the heart to work harder. ...read more.

Common Reasons for Surrender. The most common reasons Bullmastiffs are surrendered are the costs of keeping a big dog, and the fact that people did not educate themselves about the breed before they adopted one into their family. With the downturn in the economy, some owners have to move, lose a job, or simply cant afford the veterinarian bills.. Pros. Bullmastiffs are a low maintenance breed and their short hair means they do not need a lot of grooming. If you clean the ears, trim the nails, and brush them occasionally, they are good to go. They are lower energy for the most part and are happy with one or two walks a day or a quick romp in the backyard if its not too hot. Cons The Bullmastiff is a big dog and ideally needs a fenced yard. If you dont have a fenced yard, the adult will need to walk the dog. The Bullmastiff can be dog aggressive and, therefore, cannot be taken to a dog park and let off the leash.. Many Bullmastiffs are same sex aggressive and need to be the only dog in the home ...

Providing good groundwork is done as a puppy, a grown Bullmastiff will fit into a family where both parties work. A puppy, as with any breed, requires much more attention as he will become destructive if left to his own devices.The breeds protective instinct, combined with his great size and natural wariness of strangers, means early socialisation is essential and must be ongoing.

This project found that the canine version of two candidate genes known to be responsible for similar diseases in humans do not appear to be responsible for Craniomandibular Osteopathy (CMO) in Terriers. CMO is a painful, non-cancerous proliferation of the bone, primarily around the jaw, that lasts for a year, starting at the age of six weeks to six months. After ruling out the candidate genes, researchers started to scan the entire canine genome, looking for the causative gene for the disease. So far they have examined about 30 percent of the genome and have yet to find the gene, though the research continues. As part of this study, researchers discovered an improved approach to whole genome scans that will benefit all genetic researchers.

When the decision to intervene is made, one of the most important factors to consider is the proximal extent of the repair, Modarai noted, and added, We know from the literature that almost half of all repairs will be in zone 2; dissection patients are younger than those with aneurysmal disease and tend to have less favourable arch morphology; and our data suggest that around 16% of cases will have a retrograde extension into the arch. According to the IRAD data, the latter does not impact adverse outcomes but all of these factors are important considerations for making the decision whether to intervene or not and how safe that intervention is likely to be, particularly in uncomplicated cases.. Unfavourable arch anatomy is associated with increased risk. It demands a longer sealing zone, and tortuosity and high angulation make deployment more challenging. The characteristics of the graft and the reliability with which we deploy it are of paramount importance. Particular attention should be ...

00160 Patient Information Removal of tonsils and/or adenoids is one of the most frequently performed throat operations. It has proven to be a safe, effective surgical method to resolve breathing obstruction, throat infections and manage recurrent childhood ear disease. Pain following surgery is an unpleasant side effect, which can be reasonably controlled with medication. It is similar to the pain patients have experienced with throat infections, but often is also felt in the ears after surgery. There are also some risks associated with removal of tonsils and/or adenoids. Post operative bleeding occurs in about 2% of cases, most often immediate, although it can occur at any time during the first 2 weeks after surgery. Treatment of bleeding is usually an outpatient procedure, but sometimes requires control in the operating room under general anesthesia. In rare cases, a blood transfusion may be recommended. Because swallowing is painful after surgery, there may be poor oral intake of fluids. If ...
The oldest dinosaurs were bipedal and fast creatures, which had many competitors in the ecosystems of Pangea. In the Middle Triassic we already find species able to be classified into Saurischia (Herrerasaurus, Eoraptor) or Ornithischia (Pisanosaurus). The findings started at the end of the 20th century in the argentinian province called Ischigualasto, where Herrerasaurus ischigualastensis and Eoraptor lunensis was found. While Herrerasauridae was thought to be a sister taxon to Neotheropoda, Eoraptor became famous for its position as the most basal theropod dinosaur. The apomorphies linking the skeleton of these dinosaurs to theropods are numerous, for example wide intercentres of vertebrae, elongated humerus and manus, flat fourth metacarpal or the craniomandibular and intramandibular joint at the same level as the teeth rows. Later more discoveries of basal dinosaurs happened, which led to the creation of new hypotheses about the very early phylogeny of this group. Saturnalia tupiniquim was ...

An Overview Progressive Retinal Atrophy, or PRA, is a condition of the retina in the eye. PRA encompasses many diseases which all progress over time and eventually lead to blindness. The retina works in the eye much as the film in a camera works. It changes the light it receives into images which are then sent down the optic nerve to be interpreted by the brain. When a dog has PRA the retina either stops developing prematurely or the light receptors degenerate early in life. With this condition both eyes are equally affected. The different forms of PRA vary in the age at which they first develop and in the rate at which they progress. Cases can be early onset with rapid progression to late onset with slow progression or any combination of the sorts. Every case is different and definite age of onset or how quickly progression will occur can never be known for sure. Since PRA has been identified, numerous dog breeds have been found to have the disease. Some breeds that PRA is commonly found in are ...

Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) is a collective term for temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD), temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndromes, and craniomandibular disorder (CMD), that includes a variety of medical and dental conditions involving the masticatory muscles and the temporomandibular joint, as well as contiguous tissue components. It is not known how many people have TMD but the main symptoms of pain and restricted jaw movement occur in 5-15 percent of afflicted Americans and more frequently affect women. Although some cases can be linked to physical trauma or disease conditions, in most cases the cause is unknown. The most frequent presenting symptom associated with TMD is pain, usually localized to the muscles of mastication, the preauricular area, and/or the TMJ. This pain may be related to trauma, (such as a blow to the face), inflammatory or degenerative arthritis, or may be due to the mandible being pushed back towards the ears whenever the individual chews or swallows. ...
interdisciplinary efforts.. In the past, the fields of dentistry and oral medicine have, for different reasons, not always played a sufficient role in the treatment of craniofacial pain, although experienced pain therapists have long demanded including the dental/oral medicine sector in the diagnostics and treatment of such disorders (Fig. 1). Although craniomandibular dysfunctions (CMD) are the focus of this article, it should be mentioned that irritations and diseases of the pulp, periodontium, glands, nasal sinuses, and other hard and soft tissues in the craniofacial area including space-occupying processes/structures such as tumors can cause comparable craniofacial pain, which is sometimes erroneously interpreted as a functional disorder and treated with, for instance, occlusal splints.. Given this background, failed splint therapy should not be blamed on the method, but rather on the differential diagnostic exclusion of masticatory functional causes of the respective symptoms. Recent ...
Symmetrical dental occlusion blocking is used in dentistry as a quick diagnostic tool to test for potential influences of the craniomandibular system on body sway and weight distribution. This study presents the changes of body sway and pressure distribution in healthy subjects, free of a temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). Immediate effects between occlusal blocking and rest position on body sway and body weight distribution in general, as well as for both genders and for four age decades will be evaluated. 725 (396f/329 m) subjects (neither subjective signs of TMD nor acute/chronic complaints in the musculoskeletal system) volunteered (21 to 60 years) while both genders were divided into four age groups according to decades. A pressure measuring platform was used. Body sway and weight distribution were recorded in two dental occlusion conditions (a) in rest position and (b) symmetrical blocking (bicuspid region) by cotton rolls. Both, the frontal sway and the sagittal sway reduced by 0.67 mm (t(724)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Individual variations in numerically modeled human muscle and temporomandibular joint forces during static biting. AU - Iwasaki, Laura R.. AU - Thornton, Benjamin R.. AU - McCall, Willard D.. AU - Nickel, Jeffrey C.. PY - 2004/6/1. Y1 - 2004/6/1. N2 - Aims: To test the effects of occlusal force (OF) angle on the variations in predicted muscle and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) forces during unilateral molar bites. Methods: The craniomandibular (CM) geometries of 21 individuals were determined from lateral and posteroanterior cephalometric radiographs. These geometries were used in a numerical model based on minimization of muscle effort. This model was previously validated for this subject group through the use of jaw tracking and electromyographic data. The model predicted muscle and TMJ forces associated with static OFs on the right mandibular first molar. OF angle was varied from vertical to 40 degrees in the buccal and lingual directions, in increments of 10 degrees. Results: ...
