Feedback or cons/ bros on using all solid zirconium to support the length/span of 4 unit bridge covering teeth 11to14. Prevosiue porc bridge broken?

Feedback or cons/ bros on using all solid zirconium to support the length/span of 4 unit  bridge covering teeth 11to14. Prevosiue porc bridge broken?

Very strong: An all zirconium bridge contains no metal and is very strong. Another bridge option is a porcelain over metal bridge, which you may already have that has broken. Other options for replacing missing teeth would be implant(s) to replace the missing teeth or a partial denture. However, we are big proponents for all-zirconium bridges that are more biocompatible with the tissue than metal based bridges ...Read more

Lab results: hello ~ there is no history so impossible to comment. The CRP is non-specific and slightly up and ESR is non specific and slightly raised. Luckily the ANA and RA negative. The changes at ant ramus C2 and dens are nonspecific possibly due to osteo-arthritis. (ANA and RA shd not be routine labs!) If mets or myeloma in dd do bone scan. thanks ...Read more

89 y/o dad,went in hosp w/con. heart,acute kidney failure,very swollen with water, docs say his valve is calcified,talking Open Heart surg, thoughts?

Difficult choice.: That's a tough choice to make. Fixing the valve may theoretically help some of this, in the longer term, but would he even survive such a harrowing operation? Could this be treated medically, or do the doctors think that trying to treat this without surgery is futile? And would he want such medical aggression, or would he want to be more conservative? Points to ponder. Best wishes!! ...Read more

Had a mri, cerebrum:small sub cortical white matter flair hyperintensity, 2 mm in size in right anterior frontal love. No restricted diffusion. Mean?

Often Normal: White matter hyperintensities are an extremely common finding in brain mri, especially in older people. However, just because these spots are common does not mean they are completely benign. An increased number of hyperintensities has been associated with stroke, dementia, and other problems. The cause of these changes is complex, but likely represents vascular changes. ...Read more

8m old Dx with valve incompetent foramen ovale w/ trivial L to R flow through 2mm gap btw valve of fossa ovalis &upper rim of foramen. What is this?

Hole in the heart: Foramen ovale normally closes completely after birth and stays closed for life. It is relatively common to see incomplete closure in children that will spontaneously resolve. A 2mm defect is very small. The physician will decide what level (if any) of continued monitoring is necessary. ...Read more

A 14x6x6mm non-enhancing signal abnormality inferior to the basal ganglia, no high rcbv, te 135ms cho/naa ratio - 1.3: heterotopia? Low grade?

A 14x6x6mm non-enhancing signal abnormality inferior to the basal ganglia, no high rcbv, te 135ms cho/naa ratio - 1.3:  heterotopia? Low grade?

Serial Imaging : Your MRI could be consistent with low grade neoplasm or a benign finding. The best option in these cases where it is unclear is to follow the area closely with repeat MRI at say 3 month intervals. If this is benign it will stay the same. If it grows it is likely a neoplasm. ...Read more

What does subtle diastolic septal bounce indicate.  Trace fluid in pericardium. Resting pulse 95-104.  Winded walking 2 blocks. 3 months post window?

Septal bounce: The septal bounce is a paradoxical motion of the interventricular septum initially directed towards and then away from the left ventricle during diastole. Typically seen in constrictive pericarditis & cardiac tamponade due to ventricular interdependence, but can at times be seen in right ventricular dysfunction. Pericardial window was done presumably for drainage of accumulated pericardial fluid? ...Read more

Had anterior labral focal depression of shoulder bone &got repaired through binocular surgery,now when I do shoulder exercise spring like sound comes?

Had anterior labral focal depression of shoulder bone &got repaired through binocular surgery,now when I do shoulder exercise spring like sound comes?

Focal scarring: I believe the labrum probably has some scar tissue associated with the original injury, and there is bound to be some scarring from the surgery itself. If there is no pain or limitation of range of motion, the noise should not be a concern, only a side effect of injury and surgery. If there is pain or a limitation to your use of the shoulder, see an ortho and get an MRI to investigate ...Read more
