  • Introduction of DMS irrigation to heal Endo–Perio lesions and Cysts

    This article discusses the introduction of DMS Irrigation Solution (Doxycycline, Metronidazole and Saline). It is an antibiotic solution, which can be pushed beyond the Periapical region to treat the Perio-Endo Lesions, Furcation, Fistula and even a big cyst of diameter 10 to 12 cm without causing any complications. The case study has been done in Sabya General Hospital, Jizan, Saudi Arabia in patients of the age group 18 to 55 after their proper consent. Only female cases were taken up for the study. Fifty cases were treated and followed up. Among them 20 cases had periodontitis and all of these had history of diabetes. During this procedure the DMS irrigation is used which directly flushes the microbes providing enough dilution, irrigation and initiates the process of healing, revascularization, regeneration and epithelialization of the wound. Delivery system seems to be an efficient system in treating the lesions; even of bigger diameters and DMS, as an irrigation seems to be the most appropriate additional irrigation besides the conventional ones used in dentistry.

  • Alagille Syndrome in a Neonate

    Alagille syndrome (Alagille-Watson syndrome) is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder that affects the liver, heart, kidney and other systems of the body. Major contributors to morbidity arise from bile duct paucity or cholestatic liver disease, underlying cardiac disease. Males and females are affected equally. Problems associated with the disorder generally become evident in infancy or childhood in our case at birth. Prevalence of this syndrome is 1; 100,000 live births. Growth failure, delayed puberty and malnutrition are common in children with Alagille syndrome. Children with Alagille syndrome have worse growth failure than children with other chronic liver diseases, such as biliary atresia.
