A supernumerary tooth fused to the distal surface of a mandibular third molar [Case Report]

Conte, Michael; Lombardi, Paul; Linfant, Jerrery
Fusion is a tooth anomaly considered to be the result of the union between two adjacent tooth buds. The incidence of fusion is less than 1 percent of the population. The following is a case report of a unique form of a supernumerary tooth fused to the distal surface of a mandibular third molar. Radiographic evaluation demonstrates the communication of the pupal tissues. A differential diagnosis of developmental anomalies is discussed.

Global Management of Total Hip and Total Knee Arthroplasty Patient Populations: a New, Comprehensive Approach to Deep Vein Thrombosis Prophylaxis

Miric, Alexander; Lombardi, Paul; Sculco, Thomas P
Venous thromboembolic disease remains a common and potentially fatal complication after total joint arthroplasty. The incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) has been reported to be between 5% and 60% in a number of studies using a variety of prophylaxis regimens. Symptomatic pulmonary embolism has been documented as high as 23%, while fatal pulmonary embolism, although relatively infrequent, remains one of the most catastrophic complications of total joint arthroplasty.
