This study aims to examine resources and utilization of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and factors influencing TCM utilization in urban community health centers (CHCs) in Hubei Province of China. A cross-sectional survey including 234 government-owned CHCs was conducted in 2009. One-way analysis of variance analysis and a Poisson regression model were used to examine distribution of TCM resources and factors influencing TCM utilization. This study found unequal distribution of TCM resources among districts. TCM outpatient visits were positively associated with higher economic development districts, lower initial capital investment of the CHCs, health services covered by health insurance, higher qualification of TCM physicians, provision of TCM health records and rehabilitation, and greater availability of herbal medicine. To achieve equal access to TCM services, policy makers should consider the socioeconomic differences and income groups, provide training for TCM physicians, build pathway to recruit senior TCM physicians, and cover more TCM therapies by health insurance.

The primary objectives of successful prosthetic rehabilitation are to provide function, esthetics and comfort to the patient. Combination prosthesis is one which is supported by both natural teeth and implant. The periodontal ligament and osseointegrated interface distribute force differently to the supporting bone. Therefore problems can develop when tooth and implants are combined in the same prosthesis. However, clinicians can apply biomechanical principles, to negate the deleterious leverages exerted by the fixed prosthesis by using non rigid components and to equalize the stress applied by the prosthesis on implant and teeth. A case of partially edentulous situation was rehabilitated successfully with a combination of prostheses. Maxillary arch was restored to function with crowns, fixed dental prosthesis and with an extra coronal castable attachment prosthesis and the mandibular arch with a combination of tooth and implant supported attachment prosthesis. The clinical and laboratory steps for the fabrication of these prostheses are explained in this report. HubMed – rehab
