Hair Transplant

What is Hair Transplant? Hair transplantation (or autotransplantation) is a surgical technique based on the transfer of small fragments of skin - and related hair bulbs - from areas of the head that are thicker to others that are more sparse. These are therefore live follicles taken from the same patient; it is not possible to use the bulbs of a donor, nor to insert synthetic ones

Apicectomy: execution and post-intervention

What is apicectomy? Apicectomy is an invasive dental procedure that involves removing the infected apex of a dental root. If the infection cannot be treated by simple devitalisation, apicectomy is the first-line surgical procedure for restoring granulomas, cysts and dental abscesses. Despite being relatively simple and almost painless, an apicectomy intervention still requires the qualification of the operator and the collaboration on the part of the patient

apicectomy

Apicectomy: key points Apicectomy is the first choice surgical procedure for the treatment of non-curable dental granulomas through simple devitalization (canal filling). Precisely, apicectomy involves two basic steps: Removal of the apex of a tooth root severely infected with bacteria Filling of the open root cavity with a biocompatible material (retrograde dental seal) Terminology Dental granuloma: chronic inflammation of the root apex of a tooth Dental root: section of the tooth inserted into the alveolar bone, inside which is contained the dental pulp (the vital part of a tooth) Apex of a r

What is devitalization? Devitalization is a surgical procedure that involves the destruction and subsequent removal of the pulp of a tooth; it is performed when this tissue, rich in nerve endings and blood vessels, is irretrievably compromised by extensive cariogenic processes, trauma or other severe dental disorders

Judgment tooth extraction

Premise The irrepressible anguish that is often hidden behind the extraction of a wisdom tooth is a fact. We are talking about a surgical operation which consists in the literal removal of one or more wisdom teeth (the so-called third molars) from the mouth.

Intervention and types of tracheotomy

Types of tracheotomy? The tracheotomy is a delicate surgical maneuver performed to construct a direct (and reversible) respiratory communication between the external environment and the tracheal lumen. This passage, created by making an incision of skin and tracheal wall, is made possible through the insertion of a special tracheal cannula

Tracheotomy

What is the tracheotomy? Tracheotomy is a surgical tracheal maneuver performed to facilitate breathing when oxygen supply is insufficient. Specifically, the tracheotomy involves two very important and distinct phases: Temporary dilatation (opening) of the cervical tracheal wall through an incision of the skin at the level of the trachea Subsequent placement of a special tracheal cannula able to guarantee the passage of air from the outside towards the lungs and vice versa By creating a direct relationship between the tracheobronchial pathway and the external environment, the tracheotomy guarant
