WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO THE PERSISTENT OCCIPUT POSTERIOR MALPOSITION
The average rate of complications following CTI varies from 5% to 10%,,,, whereas immediate complications during the insertion are rare., In addition, the cumulative rates of early (≤24 h) and late (>24 h) complications following CTI are approximately 3% and 8%, respectively.,,, Common CTI-related complications in the early period are drainage malposition
and pneumothorax, whereas those in the late period include tube dislodgement, kinking, and infection.,
, Dialysis catheter, Hepatic vein.
In 1954, Mead defined an impacted tooth as a tooth which is prevented from erupting into position because of malposition
, lack of space or other impediments.
The aetiology of gingival recession is multifactorial.3 Several factors may play a role in gingival recession development, such as excessive or inadequate teeth brushing, destructive periodontal disease, tooth malposition
, high muscle attachment and occlusal trauma.4 There remains a significant correlation between the gingival recession and some risk factors such as cigarette smoking, use of abrasive tooth powder, oral hygiene practices, braces, and occlusal injury.5 Gingival recession appears as a wedge-shaped lesion on buccal surface of the teeth, and it can occur on any tooth surface.
The other causes of CRI in our study included electrode array extrusion (3 ears) and electrode array malposition
(3 ears, 2 in hypotympanum and 1 in Eustachian tube) as shown in Figure 2.
Infection, hardware malposition
, ulceration, and fracture are the most common complications seen after arthrodesis (10-11).
There were no early complications such as bowel perforation, stent expansion failure, and malposition
, and there was no procedure-related mortality.
The insertion time; incidence of tube malposition
(supine and lateral); intra-operative hypoxia and hypercapnia were recorded.
The occurrence of NGT placement failure and malposition
, hypoxemia, and regurgitation was addressed in the selected studies.
, a bane to the electrocardiographer, is common but rarely as egregious as in Figure 1.1 2 1 2 3 No seasoned ECG technician would have made such an error.
As the tube malposition
is associated with hypoxemia, pneumothorax, right upper lobe collapse and death, rapid confirmation of proper tube placement is critical (3).
