[Nowadays the widespread application of dental and oral surgical procedures and the use of dental implants established the need of special examination of the jaw. These implants are mainly made of metal and surgically imbedded into the edentulous jaw. Metallic artefacts deteriorate the diagnostic value of conventional X-ray. In the past years, the use of multislice CT technique and dental reformatting program can demonstrate structures which were hardly or not visible due to their shape and location. The aim of this review is to introduce this special dental CT program.]

VASZILKÓ Mihály, CSÉPLŐ Krisztina, NÉMETH Zsolt, BARABÁS József, UJPÁL Márta

[INTRODUCTION - Bisphosphonates are often used in the treatment of osteoporosis and of certain tumors with bone defects. Thus their rare side effect, necrosis of the jaw becomes more and more frequent. CASE REPORT - Between September 2005 and March 2008 we have treated 40 patients with bisphosphonate induced osteonecrosis in the maxillofacial region at our hospital. From this group, we selected two cases where typical complications emerged. CONCLUSION - Based upon data from the international literature and on our own experiences, we would like to draw attention to the importance of prevention. If symptoms are emerging, referral to a specialized department prepared to the treatment of this condition is recommended.]

[The aims of the study: The aim of our research was to gain deeper insight into the quality of life of patients after reconstructive vascular surgery of the lower limb. Material and method: The Vascuqol questionnaire survey was performed at the PTE KK Vascular Surgery Clinic on the day before the surgery and 3-6 weeks after surgery (N=54). Statistical analysis was carried out with Microsoft Office Excel 2013. Results: In summary it can be stated that following surgical intervention the quality of life of patients significantly improved, this finding ephasises the importance of invasise therapy. As the extent of pain decreased after surgery, patients’ ability to walk started to improve, as well as their overall physical state and ability to carry out certain household activities. There was also an improvement in their social life, more time was spent with family and friends. Conclusions: Although the VascuQoL-25 questionaire is senstivie device to measure quality of life, it is difficult to apply in clinical practice beacause of its length.]

The syndrome of headache with neurologic deficits and cerebrospinal fluid lymphocytosis (HaNDL) is a rare entity. This disease has been related to migrainous headaches. It is a benign, self-limited disorder, which is characterized by fluctuating neurological symptoms and cerebrospinal fluid lymphocytosis. We describe a case of a 47 years old man with acute onset of headache and aphasia. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed a lymphocytic pleocytosis (25 cells/μl, 100% lymphocytes). Electroencephalogram showed moderate slow rhythm in the left hemisphere, with temporoparietal predominance, and without epileptiform activity. His blood tests as well as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results were normal. With the diagnosis of HaNDL syndrome the patient was accepted in the Department of Neurology and discharged with full recovery.
