Combined Orthodontic and Surgical Approach in the Correction of a Class III Skeletal Malocclusion with Mandibular Prognathism and Vertical Maxillary Excess Using Bimaxillary Osteotomy
George Jose Cherackal,Eapen Thomas,Akhilesh Prathap
Case Reports in Dentistry , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/797846
Abstract: For patients whose orthodontic problems are so severe that neither growth modification nor camouflage offers a solution, surgery to realign the jaws or reposition dentoalveolar segments is the only possible treatment. Surgery is not a substitute for orthodontics in these patients. Instead, it must be properly coordinated with orthodontics and other dental treatments to achieve good overall results. Dramatic progress in recent years has made it possible for combined surgical orthodontic treatment to be carried out successfully for patients with a severe dentofacial problem of any type. This case report provides an overview of the current treatment methodology in managing a combination of asymmetrical mandibular prognathism and vertical maxillary excess. 1. Introduction The correction of dentoskeletal malocclusions has always had a threefold goal of achieving functional efficiency, structural balance, and aesthetics [1, 2]. The physical health of patients with severe malocclusion may be altered or compromised in various ways such as inducing masticatory dysfunction, speech disorders, upper airway resistance, compromised oral hygiene, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Nevertheless, above all in a modern society, the aesthetic aspect of severe malocclusion with its related psychosocial impact is more important than the associated physical problems [3]. The positive effects of having an attractive face on an individual’s mindset are clear, in terms of self-confidence and self-respect. In cases of severe malocclusion with dentoskeletal discrepancy there are generally only three possible therapeutic options: early modification of growth, orthodontic camouflage through dental compensation, or combined orthodontic and surgical (orthognathic) repositioning of the jaw bases [1]. In recent years, an increasing number of patients elect to undergo orthognathic treatment to correct severe malocclusion that is not susceptible to a comprehensive orthodontic solution. This case report presents the treatment of an adult girl with skeletal discrepancies in all three planes of space: sagittal (Class III malocclusion), vertical (vertical maxillary excess) and transverse (facial asymmetry). 2. Case Report An adult female patient with a chronological age of 19 years and 4 months and an ectomorphic body type reported to the Department of Orthodontics, Pushpagiri College of Dental Sciences, with the chief concern of unattractive facial appearance due to forwardly placed lower jaw and teeth.

A Vision to 2020: Emerging challenges and opportunities for the Engineering and Construction Sector
Arun Eapen
Techne : Journal of Technology for Architecture and Environment , 2011,
Abstract: The World Economic Forum is an independent non-governmental organisation (NGO), committed to improving the state of the world. There are approximately 1500 member companies, including 50 from the architecture and construction sector. The Forum carries out annual surveys through its CEOs, enabling it in order to draw up its projects efficaciously; this paper presents the results of the last two. As well as examining the health of public finances, the chief problem likely to bedevil the construction sector in 2011, it also provides an analysis of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), which are the most probable source of project funding in the near future, and discusses the importance of infrastructures and the use of cutting edge technologies for the sustainable development of the global economy.
Collaborative writing: Tools and tips

Abstract: Majority of technical writing is done by groups of experts and various web based applications have made this collaboration easy. Email exchange of word processor documents with tracked changes used to be the standard technique for collaborative writing. However web based tools like Google docs and Spreadsheets have made the process fast and efficient. Various versioning tools and synchronous editors are available for those who need additional functionality. Having a group leader who decides the scheduling, communication and conflict resolving protocols is important for successful collaboration.

Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 2006,
Abstract: EndNote is a useful software for online literature search and efficient bibliography management. It helps to format the bibliography according to the citation style of each journal. EndNote stores references in a library file, which can be shared with others. It can connect to online resources like PubMed and retrieve search results as per the search criteria. It can also effortlessly integrate with popular word processors like MS Word. The Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology website has a provision to import references to EndNote.

Agent-based model of laser hair removal: A treatment optimization and patient education tool
Eapen Bell
Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 2009,
Abstract: Background: Tracking of various parameters associated with laser hair removal is tedious and time consuming. The currently available mathematical models are not simple enough for physicians to be used as a treatment optimization and patient education tool. Aim: The aim of the study was to develop a mathematical model for laser hair removal using agent-based modeling and to make a user-friendly simulation environment. Methods: The model was created using NetLogo. The hairs were modeled as agents oscillating between anagen and telogen. The variables were assigned based on published data whenever possible and the various paths the agent could take were coded as conditional statements. The improvement was assessed using an arbitrary index which takes into account the mean diameter and pigmentation along with the number and length of hairs visible above the surface. Few of the commonly encountered scenarios were simulated using the model. Results: The model is made freely available online (http://www.gulfdoctor.net/model/lhr.htm). Limited number of simulations performed indicated that an eight-week gap between laser sessions may be more effective than a four-week gap. Conclusions: The simulation provides a reliable tool for treatment optimization and patient education as obtaining relevant clinical data is slow and labor-intensive. Its visual interface and online availability makes it useful for everyday use.
