PR32 - Proportion of Different Categories of Pre-Doctoral Initiated Cases Referred to Post-Graduate Endodontics in the Academic Institution

Room: Exhibit Hall

The post graduate (PG) endodontic program at the New York University College of Dentistry receives many previously initiated cases by undergraduate (UG) clinics because dental students occasionally encounter procedural complications during root canal treatment. There are few studies that are reported and statistically analyzed in such incidences in the institutional setting. If there is a high incidence on one category of complication, program curriculum can be updated to guide dental students to prevent such incidences, therefore reducing the number of the errors during root canal therapy treatment. Our purpose of this study is to analyze proportions of different categories of predoctoral-initiated cases which were referred to PG endodontics and furthermore, identify predisposing factors associated with complications. A comprehensive incident report on all predoctoral-initiated cases from 2014-2017 in the NYU College of Dentistry PG Endodontics program will be reviewed. After meeting eligibility and inclusion criteria, data will be extracted from eligible cases and categorized into seven groups: Perforation, transportation, ledge, file separation, unable to locate canal, calcified canal, and complex tooth morphology. As a preliminary data, 19 cases have been reviewed. The most common reason for referral was due to a tooth perforation (26.3%) and about half of the initiated cases were molar (52.6%). We expect to find certain procedural complication and other possible predisposing clinical factor to be significantly associated with predoctoral-initiated cases in academic institutional setting.
