Implant-supported cantilevered fixed dental rehabilitations in fully edentulous patients: Systematic review of the literature. Part II

Clinical Oral Implants Research
Stefano StorelliEugenio Romeo


To investigate fully edentulous patients rehabilitated with cantilever-fixed implant-supported restorations and to analyse which complications are reported for this type of treatment. Two operators screened the literature (MEDLINE, EMBASE) and performed a hand search on the main journals dealing with implantology and prosthetics until 31 December 2017. Only articles that considered cantilever implant-fixed restorations with at least 10 patients and with a mean follow-up of at least 5 years were selected. The outcome variables were survival of implants and prosthesis, mechanical, technical and biological complications, marginal bone loss. The review was performed according to the PRISMA statements. The risk of bias was evaluated for each article. Failure and complication rates were analysed using random effect Poisson regression models to obtain summary estimate of 5- and 10-year survival and complication rates. Fourteen papers for fully edentulous patients were selected. The estimated 5 to 10 years survival rate was calculated to be 99.00% and 96.7% for the implants and the prosthesis, respectively. A total of 299 complications (technical and biological) were reported with a cumulative 5-10 years complication rate of 44.41% and...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
