Trismus refers to a person’s inability to normally open his or her mouth. Trismus can occur as a symptom due to tumor ingrowth or it can occur postsurgical following the treatment for head and neck cancer. Radiation-induced trismus is also a relatively common oral complication. This review aimed at reviewing the etiopathogenesis of trismus in patients with head and neck cancer. Of the 16 publications included after final screening, of which one was a nonrandomized control trial, one a randomized control trial, 6 prospective cohort studies, and 8 retrospective cohort studies. Among them, 6 articles addressed the possible mechanism for trismus related to tumor ingrowth, 8 articles suggested the likely reason for trismus in patients who had undergone radiation therapy and 2 articles addressed the postsurgical cause for trismus. This review highlights the possible involvement of infratemporal fossa as a predetermining factor for developing trismus related to tumor extension. The molecular mechanism of radiation-induced fibrosis is well studied in the literature.

Introduction: Accuracy of definitive impressions determines
the quality of final prosthesis to a great extent. In conventional
impression, elastic impression materials are used to replicate
the anatomy and prosthesis is fabricated indirectly. Digital
impression on the other hand gains popularity due to the
advantages like 3D previsualisation, cost effectiveness and
decreased time consumption.
Aim: To review the existing reports, to bring forth the
comprehensive overview on the comparative superiority
of digital impression technique based on accuracy, patient
acceptance, operators preference and time effectiveness when
compared to conventional technique.
Materials and Methods: Search strategy for this review
was based on Population, Intervention, Comparison, and
Outcome(PICO) framework. An electronic search of articles
published from 1980 to 2017 in PubMed, Medline and Cochrane
via Ovid, along with additional hand searches were done.
Data screening and extraction was performed in covidence
systematic reviews of tware. Clinical and preclinical studies and
randomised controlled trials which compared optical impression
with conventional impressions based on accuracy, patient
outcome and operator outcome were included in the study.
Results: A total of 36 articles that complied fully with the
inclusion criteria were evaluated. Among the 24 studies
which compared digital and conventional impressions based
on accuracy, 16 articles reported that digital impressions are
superior to conventional impressions; however no statistical
significance was mentioned. Based on patient preference, four
articles concluded digital impression as the preferred choice.
Eight articles assessed the operator preference and the outcome
was in favour of digital impressions.
Conclusion: This review has concisely summarised that digital
impressions are superior to conventional impressions, without
any statistically significant difference, based on assessment of
accuracy, patient preference and operator preference.

Osteoarthrosis incidence among subjects above 65 is 60-70%, and arterial hypertension in the same age-related group occurs in 50% of the subjects. But the severity of arterial hypertension is determined not only by the degree of arterial pressure increase. Early diagnostics of disordering the structure and function of target organs, and, first of all, those of the heart is one of the important moments. 50 patients at the age above 50 with the knee and the hip osteoarthrosis have been examined. All of them had associated arterial hypertension of II-III stage. The patients were divided into groups depending on their age. ECG- and EchoCG-examination was performed in all of them. Left vetricular remodeling and hypertrophy progressing with age were observed in 82 % of cases. The higher values of wall thickness, myocardium mass, and myocardium mass index of the left ventricle, as well as the decreased values of ejection fraction and fractional shortening were observed in patients with the heart geometry changed in comparison with the patients with the heart normal geometry. High percentage of revealing the diastolic function disorder of both the left and the right ventricles was observed in all the groups.
