Tissue integrated oral implants have initiated a new perspective in oral rehabilitation of tumor patients who have had undergone surgical resection procedure. The present case demonstrated a simple and predictable approach to rehabilitate a patient who had partial maxillectomy using dental implants. The use of an implant in conjunction with hollow bulb obturator shared remarkable improvement in retention and stability of the existing complete denture prosthesis. HubMed – rehab

This clinical case report describes the oral rehabilitation of an adult female patient diagnosed with hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfecta with inadequate, deteriorated restorations of anterior teeth, inadequate clinical crown heights of posterior teeth due to severe attrition of hypoplastic enamel. Treatment included extraction of teeth with poor prognosis, root canal treatment and crown lengthening of severely worn out teeth & full coverage porcelain-fused-to metal fixed restoration of entire dentition. The main objectives of the selected treatment were to enhance the esthetics, restore masticatory function and eliminate the teeth sensitivity. These treatment objectives were successfully met by sequential fixed prosthodontics treatment using Pankey-Mann-Schuyler philosophy of complete occlusal rehabilitation. Treatment not only restored function and esthetic, but also showed a positive psychological impact and thereby improved perceived quality of life. HubMed – rehab

Emotions: An Indian perspective.

Indian J Psychiatry. 2013 Jan; 55(Suppl 2): S153-6
Ramaprasad D

The present paper is an attempt to understand emotions and the affect from Indian traditional point of view. In the Indian philosophical texts’ detailed descriptions of emotions are not available nor are dealt with as a separate concept. This view of emotions lays emphasis on desires as the root cause of emotional upheavals. They are seen as modification of desire and attachment. The desires are seen as arising from the contact and attachment of the ego or ahamkara with the external world and are caused by a sense of imperfection, incompleteness or non-fulfillment. Ego or ahamkara is differentiated from the true Self or atman. Emotions are viewed as springs of action and are bipolar in nature. According to Patanjali’s Yoga Shastra, suffering is due to ignorance about one’s true “self” (avidya). Hence, suffering or dukha arises from within and not from the outside world. Bhagvadgita traces all emotional experiences to the gunas, i.e., sattva, rajas, and tamas. Works of Bharathmuni have contributed to the understanding of emotional experiences. Concept of rasa or aesthetic relish is central to this approach to understanding affective experiences as dealt with in the Natyashastra of Bharathamuni. These views underline the recommended path for self-transformation. Regulating emotions, both emotional experience and emotional expression, is an integral part of the recommended “principles of living.” HubMed – rehab

Education quality, reading recognition, and racial differences in the neuropsychological outcome from traumatic brain injury.

Arch Clin Neuropsychol. 2013 Aug; 28(5): 485-91

Ethnically diverse examinees tend to perform lower on neuropsychological tests. The practice of adjusting normative comparisons for the education level and/or race to prevent overpathologizing low scores is problematic. Education quality, as measured by reading recognition, appears to be a more accurate benchmark for premorbid functioning in certain populations. The present study aimed to extend this line of research to traumatic brain injury (TBI). We hypothesized that a measure of reading recognition, the Wechsler Test of Adult Reading (WTAR), would account for racial differences in neuropsychological performance after TBI. Fifty participants (72% African American, 28% Caucasian) with moderate to severe TBI underwent neuropsychological testing at 1-year post-injury. Reading recognition accounted for all the same variance in neuropsychological performance as race and education (together), as well as considerable additional variance. Estimation of premorbid functioning in African Americans with TBI could be refined by considering reading recognition. HubMed – rehab
