Summary:  Purpose: to Investigate the outcomes of contemporary root-end surgery (CRS) techniques with only loupes or no visualization aids compared with endodontic microsurgery using the same instruments and materials but with high-power magnification (surgical operating microscope or the endoscope) EMS. The influence of the tooth type on the outcome was  also investigated. N=16 data sets […]

Purpose: to investigate the specific outcome of traditional root-end surgery (TRS) versus endodontic microsurgery (EMS) and the probability of success for comparison of the 2 techniques. N=  21 studies (12 TRS, 9 EMS) Materials/Methods: •A well defined review question was developed by using PICO framework ” Teeth that have undergone a root end surgery  & […]

Summary:   •Purpose:  to assess the influence of bone defect dimensions on outcome 1 year after apical surgery. • N= 183 teeth in an equal number of patients. •Materials/Methods:    •Apical surgery was performed. Bone dimensions (Fig. 1) were measured after resection. •Patients were recalled 1 year after surgery for clinical & radiographic reexamination. •Healing […]
