    Enucleation is the removal of the entire globe of the eye and a portion of the optic nerve, while evisceration involves the removal of the contents of the globe leaving the sclera, extraocular muscles, and optic nerve. Following enucleation or evisceration, intraorbital implants are routinely placed to enhance the prosthetic outcome in addition to restoring the lost orbital volume. Current practice employs intraorbital implants made of nonporous silicone, hydroxyapatite, or porous polyethylene. Intraorbital implant selection and placement, being a highly demanding procedure in terms of knowledge, skill, and expertise, may be associated with a multiplicity of technical and surgical errors. Complications are usually minimal with these implants, but they do occur. The literature reveals many articles related to intraorbital implants, their benefits, and complications; however, the literature regarding the effect of various intraorbital implant situations on the subsequent prosthetic rehabilitation is markedly scarce. Moreover, the need for interdisciplinary surgical and prosthetic interventions required for successful rehabilitation in cases of compromised implant situations has been underemphasized. Hence, this review aimed to evaluate the effect of different intraorbital implant situations on ocular rehabilitation and the required interdisciplinary surgical and prosthetic treatment approach for rehabilitation of enucleated/eviscerated sockets with compromised implant situations, to provide a critical appraisal, and to present a simplified management strategy.

    The purpose of this study was to find the scientific evidence pertaining to various transfemoral suspension systems to provide selection criteria for clinicians. To this end, databases of PubMed, Web of Science, and ScienceDirect were explored. The following key words, as well as their combinations and synonyms, were used for the search: transfemoral prosthesis, prosthetic suspension, lower limb prosthesis, above-knee prosthesis, prosthetic liner, transfemoral, and prosthetic socket. The study design, research instrument, sampling method, outcome measures, and protocols of articles were reviewed. On the basis of the selection criteria, 16 articles (11 prospective studies and 5 surveys) were reviewed. The main causes of reluctance to prosthesis, aside from energy expenditure, were socket-related problems such as discomfort, perspiration, and skin problems. Osseointegration was a suspension option, yet it is rarely applied because of several drawbacks, such as extended rehabilitation process, risk for fracture, and infection along with excessive cost. In conclusion, no clinical evidence was found as a "standard" system of suspension and socket design for all transfemoral amputees. However, among various suspension systems for transfemoral amputees, the soft insert or double socket was favored by most users in terms of function and comfort.

    Today a number of prosthetic suspension systems are available for transtibial amputees. Consideration of an appropriate suspension system can ensure that amputee's functional needs are satisfied. The higher the insight to suspension systems, the easier would be the selection for prosthetists. This review attempted to find scientific evidence pertaining to various transtibial suspension systems to provide selection criteria for clinicians.

    Conventional open repair for Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAA) is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Spinal cord ischemia (SCI), renal failure, bowel ischemia and mortality are established complications following this procedure. With the advent of endovascular stent technology, various novel approaches have been described to reduce these complications, namely fenestrated stent graft and hybrid procedure. We present a case of hybrid procedure in a pseudoaneurysm of descending thoracic aorta done in Kuala Lumpur Hospital.

    A 68 year old man with significant cardiorespiratory risks factors presented with a ruptured thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA). This was treated by emergency thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) under general anaesthesia (GA). An incidental abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) was not treated. Eight months later, he presented with ruptured AAA. Due to the patient's compromised respiratory system, he underwent endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) under local anaesthesia (LA). He had a smoother post-operation recovery compared to the first repair under GA.

    Percutaneous bifurcation intervention is usually sufficient with a single-stent strategy. When the double-stent strategy is employed, higher restenosis and target lesion revascularization (TLR) rates are observed, especially at the side-branch ostium. The results may be improved, however, with refinement in techniques, for example, final kissing balloon inflation and double kissing balloon inflation.

    Total femur endoprothesis is an alternative replacement for massive malignant bone tumor with intramedullary extension or skip lesion. Four patients underwent total femoral resection and replacement with megaprosthesis: three had primary malignant bone tumor and one had salvage procedure for aseptic loosening of the distal femoral replacement. Tumor-free margins were achieved in all patients with two patients required vascularized latissimus dorsi free flap cover for reconstruction of soft tissue defects. The average follow-up was 24 months (range 16 - 60 months). All four patients were still alive with three of them being disease-free and one survived even with the presence of lung metastasis. The functional results obtained were either excellent or good in all patients in accordance to the Musculoskeletal Tumors Society grading system.

    Osteo-odontokeratoprosthesis (OOKP) surgery is a technique used to replace damaged cornea in blind patients for whom cadaveric transplantation is not feasible. OOKP surgery is a complex procedure requiring lifetime follow-up. The preservation of the osteo-odontolamina is the vital feature in maintaining the stability of the OOKP. Early detection of lamina resorption enables early prophylactic measures to be taken and prevent resorption-related complications. This case illustrates the radiological findings of the first OOKP surgery in Malaysia and the role of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in postoperative management of OOKP surgery.

    Missing teeth can be due to hypodontia, trauma or extraction. In general, the options for treatment depend on the severity of the hypodontia and the severity of the malocclusion. Occasionally, the space from missing teeth has to be maintained for prosthetic replacement and require an orthodontic/restorative approach. It is very important to ensure the space maintained is adequate for aesthetic reason so that it can be replaced with a prosthesis after the orthodontic treatment is completed. This article discusses a new innovation and clinical technique for maintaining this space during orthodontic treatment by using an acrylic tooth with several modifications. This innovation will be illustrated using two cases.

    This clinical case report details the clinical sequence of a 78-year-old male receiving prosthetic rehabilitation using an implant-supported screwretained fixed partial denture. Despite the limitations imposed, the aesthetic and functional demands of the patient were fulfilled by this prosthetic rehabilitation. The importance of detailed prosthetic planning and evaluation prior to implant surgery is essential, therefore ideally, it should be done by the same operator or a team of operators working together. Problems can arise when the construction of the prosthesis is performed by other people who are not involved in the planning stage.

    Tumour surgery for locally extensive malignant neoplasms of the extremity will sometimes result in extensive composite soft tissue defect. Local flaps are usually inadequate to cover these large defects. More than one tissue flap might be required to cover any exposed neurovascular structures, bone or prosthesis. We present two cases where two composite flaps were simultaneously used to cover extensive surgical defects after ablative tumour resections in the extremity. These resulted in uncomplicated wound healing and limb salvage.

    Restoring the patient's missing dentition secondary to partial mandibulectomy of KCOT is important to improve function and aesthetics. The patient presented with a significant loss of alveolar bone which makes the fabrication of rehabilitation prosthesis a significant challenge. A neutral-zone impression technique is helpful in determining the exact space to be restored without compromising aesthetics and it avoids functional muscle displacement that may displace the prosthesis. This article describes the neutral zone impression technique to record a patient's functional muscular movement in guiding the setting of acrylic teeth and denture flange in the neutral zone area. This technique is very useful for postsurgical cases with significant loss of alveolar bone.

    One of the considerable challenges for screw-retained multi-unit implant prosthesis is achieving a passive fit of the prosthesis' superstructure to the implants. This passive fit is supposed to be one of the most vital requirements for the maintenance of the osseointegration. On the other hand, the misfit of the implant supported superstructure may lead to unfavourable complications, which can be mechanical or biological in nature. The manifestations of these complications may range from fracture of various components in the implant system, pain, marginal bone loss, and even loss of osseointegration. Thus, minimizing the misfit and optimizing the passive fit should be a prerequisite for implant survival and success. The purpose of this article is to present and summarize some aspects of the passive fit achieving and improving methods. The literature review was performed through Science Direct, Pubmed, and Google database. They were searched in English using the following combinations of keywords: passive fit, implant misfit and framework misfit. Articles were selected on the basis of whether they had sufficient information related to framework misfit's related factors, passive fit and its achievement techniques, marginal bone changes relation with the misfit, implant impression techniques and splinting concept. The related references were selected in order to emphasize the importance of the passive fit achievement and the misfit minimizing. Despite the fact that the literature presents considerable information regarding the framework's misfit, there was not consistency in literature on a specified number or even a range to be the acceptable level of misfit. On the other hand, a review of the literature revealed that the complete passive fit still remains a tricky goal to be achieved by the prosthodontist.

    INTRODUCTION: Maxillary obturator prosthesis is more frequent treatment modality than surgical reconstruction for maxillectomy in patients suffering from oral cancer. The obturators often become heavy and hence are hollowed out in the defect portion to reduce its weight as a standard practice.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: The processing technique described the incorporation of the preshaped "wax-bolus" during packing procedure of the Obturtor prosthesis and eliminated later by melting it once the curing procedure is completed.

    RESULTS: This article is a single step procedure resulting into the closed-hollow obturator as single unit with uniform wall thickness around the hollow space ensuring the least possible weight of the hollow obturator.

    CONCLUSION: This processing technique achieves predictable internal dimension of the hollow space providing uniform wall thickness of the obturator.

    Coronary sinus perforation is a relatively uncommon but much feared complication that may occur during the placement of left ventricular pacing lead. Coronary sinus perforation, especially in the presence of an obstructive flap, usually indicates the need to abandon the implantation attempt, as there are difficulties in crossing the obstructive flap as well as uncertainty of whether the lead is in the true lumen or into the pericardial space. We describe our experience in successfully placing the left ventricular lead safely despite the problems arising from these circumstances.
