They also are the most common teeth that need esthetic replacement. A 23-year-old female patient with missing maxillary lateral incisors was treated orthodontically: laterals were replaced with implants. Challenges while doing this case are discussed in the following case report.</p> Suruchi Satyajit Jatol-Tekade Satyajit Ashok Tekade Shaleen Khetrapal Sachin C.

Thus far, there have been a few published cases of pericardial effusion associated with rivaroxban. However, there has been little published regarding the effects of concurrent medications and their effect on the cytochrome enzyme systems involved in rivaroxaban metabolism. We present a case of a 76-year-old female who develops a spontaneous haemopericardium after initiating rivaroxaban. After thorough medical reconciliation, we offer pharmacokinetic mechanisms that may have contributed to the haemopericardium. This case demonstrates the importance of reviewing patients medication lists and utilizing basic pharmacokinetics to prevent adverse events.</p> Adwait Mehta David Burkland Nilesh Mathuria ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2019-01-30 2019-01-30 9 1 10.4081/cp.2019.1096 Unusual foreign object in a tooth: A case report and review of literature https://clinicsandpractice.org/index.php/cp/article/view/1114 <p>Foreign body impactions in the tooth are common findings in the oral cavity of children because of their frequent habits of placing various objects in their mouth. The present case describes an 11-year-old boy with a foreign object in the maxillary left first molar tooth of which he was unaware. Foreign objects can not only be a source of infection but also be aspirated or ingested by the child. The discovery of foreign objects in the teeth is usually accidental. A detailed case history, consisting of a history of the ordinary placement of the object and clinical and radiographic examinations is necessary to determine the nature, size, and location of the foreign body, as well as the difficulty involved in its retrieval. The foreign object may sometimes fracture inside the tooth during exploration by the parent or child. Such an object may act as a potential source of infection and lead to complications.</p> Nawaf Mohammad Ashqar Fareedi Mukram Ali ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2019-02-11 2019-02-11 9 1 10.4081/cp.2019.1114
