*  A Rare Case of Post Septic Temporomandibular Joint Ankylosis - Cogprints
Temporomandibular joint ankylosis involves fusion of the mandibular condyle to the base of the skull. It is a major clinical problem that affects many patients suffering from facial trauma, infection or systemic disease. The treatment of Temporomandibular joint ankylosis poses a significant challenge because of technical difficulties and a high incidence of recurrence. This report describe a rare case of a 16 year-man with complete inability to open his mouth, diagnosed with unilateral post septic left bony Temporomandibular joint ankylosis. The surgical approach consisted of gap arthroplasty followed by vigorous physiotherapy. ...

*  The Relationship between Temporomandibular Joint Ankylosis and Condylar Fractures
Trauma is the predominant causal factor for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) ankylosis. However, the relationship between condylar fracture and TMJ ankylosis is complicated. It is believed that post-traumatic TMJ ankylosis arises from TMJ intracapsular changes, including damaged cartilage, displaced or disrupted discs, haematoma formation and subsequent fibrosis and calcification in the joint. In this review, the relationship between TMJ ankylosis and condylar fracture is discussed based on clinical characteristics and animal studies. The management of TMJ ankylosis is also reviewed and discussed ...

*  Induced ankylosis of a primary molar for skeletal anchorage in the mandible as alternative to mini-implants | Progress in...
Induced ankylosed primary teeth can be used in place of temporary anchorage devices to maximize anchorage during orthodontic treatment. The technique used in the present case was based on the treatment protocol for avulsed teeth exceeding 60 min extraoral dry time, as suggested by the International Association of Dental Traumatology [11]. However, the tooth was not placed in 2 % sodium fluoride for 20 min since the goal of this step is to postpone osseous replacement of the root [10], which was not a desired outcome in this case. Also, a rigid splint was used to further assure tooth ankylosis [12]. Previous studies that have reported induced ankylosis for orthodontic protraction have used similar techniques [7-9].. Several treatment alternatives have been proposed for the management of congenital missing premolars. In cases of deep bite, spacing, and class I occlusion, the primary tooth can be kept in place until it exfoliates [2, 13]. In cases of congenitally missing ...

Tooth ankylosis is the fusion of the tooth to the bone, preventing the tooth from erupting. This can happen in both primary ('baby') teeth and permanent teeth, and may occur at any stage during development or eruption. The cause of this condition is still uncertain. Theories include trauma and heredity. An exam and x-ray are the main diagnostic methods for determining ankylosis. Some cases require surgical extractions for orthodontic and functional purposes ...

14. There are periods associated with those remissions and relapses. Pathophysiology of them Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis goes through four stages. The first noticeable stage is perhaps inflammation of the joint membrane (synovitis), causing blockage and oedema. The next phase is the formation whereas pannus. A layer of inflammatory tissue forms in the joint capsule. Fibroblasts, leucocytes, lymphocytes, plasma cells and many other materials multiply from the synovial membrane a lot of pannus tissue which invades with cartilage and slowly replace it with tough fibrous cells. The disease progresses a reality otherwise known as fibrous ankylosis. This involves the conversion of the articular cartilage of the full joint into fibrous body parts thereby inhibiting motion of that joint. The final stage is perhaps bony ankylosis. In the following stage, the bones of the joint fuse together and thus making mobility impossible. .. ...

In the present study, we found that AS-BMSCs showed normal proliferation, cell viability, surface markers and multiple differentiations characteristics, but significantly reduced immunomodulation potential; also, the frequencies of Treg and Fox-P3+ cells in AS-PBMCs decreased, but CCR4+CCR6+ Th cells increased. Moreover, the AS-BMSCs induced the ratio of CCR4+CCR6+ Th/Treg cell imbalance when co-cultured with PBMCs. Additionally, no differences were found between HD1 and HD2. Impressively, the immunomodulation potential of BMSCs has negative correlation with the ratios of CCR4+CCR6+ Th to Treg cells in peripheral blood.. Characteristic symptoms of AS are spinal stiffness, ankylosis and syndesmophytes [1], which are explained by spinal inflammation, structural damage, or both [40]. As the ankylosis of the spine or even spinal stiffness was probably initiated by the heterotopic ossification of osteoblasts, and most of these osteoblasts derived from BMSCs [41, 42], and, ...

INTRODUCTION: An axial symptom is one of the postoperative problems after cervical laminoplasty. The range of motion (ROM) of the cervical spine decreases after laminoplasty. It is speculated that the reduction in neck ROM is one of the causes of axial symptoms. However, most reports have focused on ROM of the cervical spine in flexion and extension, and few papers describe the rotational motion after surgery. It is impossible to assess the rotational motion in plain X-rays. This study was undertaken for the following two purposes: (1) to compare segmental rotational angles of the cervical spine between control subjects and patients with cervical laminoplasty ; (2) to analyze the relationship between postoperative axial symptoms and the range of cervical rotational angle after laminoplasty ...

Ageing male DBA/1 mice from different litters were caged together at the age of 8-10 weeks and studied for prospective signs of arthritis. Inflammation-associated gene expression was examined using RNA isolated from affected and healthy paws, as well as draining lymph nodes. DBA/1 mice were treated daily by injection of dexamethasone (0.5 µg/g body weight). Severity of disease was assessed by histomorphology and by positron emission tomography (PET) using 18-deoxyfluoroglucose as a tracer. Bone loss in dexamethasone-treated or control mice was determined by in vivo dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. Chemokine expression was studied in vitro in mesenchymal cell types (primary synovial fibroblasts, periosteal and bone marrow stromal cells) by quantitative real-time PCR in the presence or absence of BMP2 and/or dexamethasone. C2C12 cells stably transfected with a BMP-reporter construct were used for cell stretch experiments in a dedicated bioreactor.. ...

*  Lumbar fusion - indications and surgical options
ABSTRACT. The sacrifice of motion to achieve spinal stability and pain relief has been practised since the early 20th century by means of iatrogenically induced ankylosis or fusion. Initially this was practised in the management of Pott's disease and indications have been expanded over the years to include trauma, deformity and degenerative conditions. In the last few decades there has been a proliferation of options as regards surgical technique and instrumentation. This often overwhelms the surgeon where more is perceived to be better, yet there is limited evidence that this is in fact so.. ...
