Introduction The purpose of this study is to examine the possible interactions of predictor variables pertaining to perceived disability claims contained in a large governmental database. Specifically, it is a retrospective analysis of US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) data for the entire population of workplace discrimination claims based on the “regarded as disabled” prong of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) definition of disability. Methods The study utilized records extracted from a “master database” of over two million charges of workplace discrimination in the Integrated Mission System of the EEOC. This database includes all ADA-related discrimination allegations filed from July 26, 1992 through December 31, 2008. Chi squared automatic interaction detection (CHAID) was employed to analyze interaction effects of relevant variables, such as issue (grievance) and industry type. The research question addressed by CHAID is: What combination of factors are associated with merit outcomes for people making ADA EEOC allegations who are “regarded as” having disabilities? Results The CHAID analysis shows how merit outcome is predicted by the interaction of relevant variables. Issue was found to be the most prominent variable in determining merit outcome, followed by industry type, but the picture is made more complex by qualifications regarding age and race data. Although discharge was the most frequent grievance among charging parties in the perceived disability group, its merit outcome was significantly less than that for the leading factor of hiring.

Posterior maxillary segmental osteotomy for the implant reconstruction of a vertically deficient ridge: A 3-year clinical report.

A vertically deficient posterior maxillary edentulous ridge in conjunction with sinus pneumatization or extensive horizontal bone resorption presents significant challenges for implant placement and restoration with an implant-supported fixed prosthesis. Various surgical techniques have been reported for the reconstruction of the vertically deficient posterior maxilla: guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, block and/or particulate grafting with barrier membranes, and distraction osteogenesis. This clinical report describes the technique, the management of intrasurgical complications, and the 3-year follow-up results of augmenting the vertically deficient posterior maxilla with a segmental osteotomy prior to rehabilitation with an implant-supported fixed prosthesis.
