"Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research is at present a well-known Indian originated scientific journal which started with a humble beginning. I have been associated with this journal since many years. I appreciate the Editor, Dr. Hemant Jain, for his constant effort in bringing up this journal to the present status right from the scratch. The journal is multidisciplinary. It encourages in publishing the scientific articles from postgraduates and also the beginners who start their career. At the same time the journal also caters for the high quality articles from specialty and super-specialty researchers. Hence it provides a platform for the scientist and researchers to publish. The other aspect of it is, the readers get the information regarding the most recent developments in science which can be used for teaching, research, treating patients and to some extent take preventive measures against certain diseases. The journal is contributing immensely to the society at national and international level."

" Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR) is a multi-specialty medical and dental journal publishing high quality research articles in almost all branches of medicine. The quality of printing of figures and tables is excellent and comparable to any International journal. An added advantage is nominal publication charges and monthly issue of the journal and more chances of an article being accepted for publication. Moreover being a multi-specialty journal an article concerning a particular specialty has a wider reach of readers of other related specialties also. As an author and reviewer for several years I find this Journal most suitable and highly recommend this Journal."

Dr. Mamta Gupta,
"It gives me great pleasure to be associated with JCDR, since last 2-3 years. Since then I have authored, co-authored and reviewed about 25 articles in JCDR. I thank JCDR for giving me an opportunity to improve my own skills as an author and a reviewer.
It 's a multispecialty journal, publishing high quality articles. It gives a platform to the authors to publish their research work which can be available for everyone across the globe to read. The best thing about JCDR is that the full articles of all medical specialties are available as pdf/html for reading free of cost or without institutional subscription, which is not there for other journals. For those who have problem in writing manuscript or do statistical work, JCDR comes for their rescue.
The journal has a monthly publication and the articles are published quite fast. In time compared to other journals. The on-line first publication is also a great advantage and facility to review one's own articles before going to print. The response to any query and permission if required, is quite fast; this is quite commendable. I have a very good experience about seeking quick permission for quoting a photograph (Fig.) from a JCDR article for my chapter authored in an E book. I never thought it would be so easy. No hassles.
Reviewing articles is no less a pain staking process and requires in depth perception, knowledge about the topic for review. It requires time and concentration, yet I enjoy doing it. The JCDR website especially for the reviewers is quite user friendly. My suggestions for improving the journal is, more strict review process, so that only high quality articles are published. I find a a good number of articles in Obst. Gynae, hence, a new journal for this specialty titled JCDR-OG can be started. May be a bimonthly or quarterly publication to begin with. Only selected articles should find a place in it.
An yearly reward for the best article authored can also incentivize the authors. Though the process of finding the best article will be not be very easy. I do not know how reviewing process can be improved. If an article is being reviewed by two reviewers, then opinion of one can be communicated to the other or the final opinion of the editor can be communicated to the reviewer if requested for. This will help one’s reviewing skills.
My best wishes to Dr. Hemant Jain and all the editorial staff of JCDR for their untiring efforts to bring out this journal. I strongly recommend medical fraternity to publish their valuable research work in this esteemed journal, JCDR".

"I wish to thank Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), for asking me to write up few words.
Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium i e; into the words and sentences on paper. Quality medical manuscript writing in particular, demands not only a high-quality research, but also requires accurate and concise communication of findings and conclusions, with adherence to particular journal guidelines. In medical field whether working in teaching, private, or in corporate institution, everyone wants to excel in his / her own field and get recognised by making manuscripts publication.


Authors are the souls of any journal, and deserve much respect. To publish a journal manuscripts are needed from authors. Authors have a great responsibility for producing facts of their work in terms of number and results truthfully and an individual honesty is expected from authors in this regards. Both ways its true "No authors-No manuscripts-No journals" and "No journals–No manuscripts–No authors". Reviewing a manuscript is also a very responsible and important task of any peer-reviewed journal and to be taken seriously. It needs knowledge on the subject, sincerity, honesty and determination. Although the process of reviewing a manuscript is a time consuming task butit is expected to give one's best remarks within the time frame of the journal.
Salient features of the JCDR: It is a biomedical, multidisciplinary (including all medical and dental specialities), e-journal, with wide scope and extensive author support. At the same time, a free text of manuscript is available in HTML and PDF format. There is fast growing authorship and readership with JCDR as this can be judged by the number of articles published in it i e; in Feb 2007 of its first issue, it contained 5 articles only, and now in its recent volume published in April 2011, it contained 67 manuscripts. This e-journal is fulfilling the commitments and objectives sincerely, (as stated by Editor-in-chief in his preface to first edition) i e; to encourage physicians through the internet, especially from the developing countries who witness a spectrum of disease and acquire a wealth of knowledge to publish their experiences to benefit the medical community in patients care. I also feel that many of us have work of substance, newer ideas, adequate clinical materials but poor in medical writing and hesitation to submit the work and need help. JCDR provides authors help in this regards.
Timely publication of journal: Publication of manuscripts and bringing out the issue in time is one of the positive aspects of JCDR and is possible with strong support team in terms of peer reviewers, proof reading, language check, computer operators, etc. This is one of the great reasons for authors to submit their work with JCDR. Another best part of JCDR is "Online first Publications" facilities available for the authors. This facility not only provides the prompt publications of the manuscripts but at the same time also early availability of the manuscripts for the readers.
Indexation and online availability: Indexation transforms the journal in some sense from its local ownership to the worldwide professional community and to the public.JCDR is indexed with Embase & EMbiology, Google Scholar, Index Copernicus, Chemical Abstracts Service, Journal seek Database, Indian Science Abstracts, to name few of them. Manuscriptspublished in JCDR are available on major search engines ie; google, yahoo, msn.
In the era of fast growing newer technologies, and in computer and internet friendly environment the manuscripts preparation, submission, review, revision, etc and all can be done and checked with a click from all corer of the world, at any time. Of course there is always a scope for improvement in every field and none is perfect. To progress, one needs to identify the areas of one's weakness and to strengthen them.
It is well said that "happy beginning is half done" and it fits perfectly with JCDR. It has grown considerably and I feel it has already grown up from its infancy to adolescence, achieving the status of standard online e-journal form Indian continent since its inception in Feb 2007. This had been made possible due to the efforts and the hard work put in it. The way the JCDR is improving with every new volume, with good quality original manuscripts, makes it a quality journal for readers. I must thank and congratulate Dr Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief JCDR and his team for their sincere efforts, dedication, and determination for making JCDR a fast growing journal.
Every one of us: authors, reviewers, editors, and publisher are responsible for enhancing the stature of the journal. I wish for a great success for JCDR."

Dr. Shankar P.R.

"On looking back through my Gmail archives after being requested by the journal to write a short editorial about my experiences of publishing with the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), I came across an e-mail from Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor, in March 2007, which introduced the new electronic journal. The main features of the journal which were outlined in the e-mail were extensive author support, cash rewards, the peer review process, and other salient features of the journal.
Over a span of over four years, we (I and my colleagues) have published around 25 articles in the journal. In this editorial, I plan to briefly discuss my experiences of publishing with JCDR and the strengths of the journal and to finally address the areas for improvement.
My experiences of publishing with JCDR: Overall, my experiences of publishing withJCDR have been positive. The best point about the journal is that it responds to queries from the author. This may seem to be simple and not too much to ask for, but unfortunately, many journals in the subcontinent and from many developing countries do not respond or they respond with a long delay to the queries from the authors 1. The reasons could be many, including lack of optimal secretarial and other support. Another problem with many journals is the slowness of the review process. Editorial processing and peer review can take anywhere between a year to two years with some journals. Also, some journals do not keep the contributors informed about the progress of the review process. Due to the long review process, the articles can lose their relevance and topicality. A major benefit with JCDR is the timeliness and promptness of its response. In Dr Jain's e-mail which was sent to me in 2007, before the introduction of the Pre-publishing system, he had stated that he had received my submission and that he would get back to me within seven days and he did!
Most of the manuscripts are published within 3 to 4 months of their submission if they are found to be suitable after the review process. JCDR is published bimonthly and the accepted articles were usually published in the next issue. Recently, due to the increased volume of the submissions, the review process has become slower and it ?? Section can take from 4 to 6 months for the articles to be reviewed. The journal has an extensive author support system and it has recently introduced a paid expedited review process. The journal also mentions the average time for processing the manuscript under different submission systems - regular submission and expedited review.
Strengths of the journal: The journal has an online first facility in which the accepted manuscripts may be published on the website before being included in a regular issue of the journal. This cuts down the time between their acceptance and the publication. The journal is indexed in many databases, though not in PubMed. The editorial board should now take steps to index the journal in PubMed. The journal has a system of notifying readers through e-mail when a new issue is released. Also, the articles are available in both the HTML and the PDF formats. I especially like the new and colorful page format of the journal. Also, the access statistics of the articles are available. The prepublication and the manuscript tracking system are also helpful for the authors.
Areas for improvement: In certain cases, I felt that the peer review process of the manuscripts was not up to international standards and that it should be strengthened. Also, the number of manuscripts in an issue is high and it may be difficult for readers to go through all of them. The journal can consider tightening of the peer review process and increasing the quality standards for the acceptance of the manuscripts. I faced occasional problems with the online manuscript submission (Pre-publishing) system, which have to be addressed.
Overall, the publishing process with JCDR has been smooth, quick and relatively hassle free and I can recommend other authors to consider the journal as an outlet for their work."

Abstract

Gingival recession which is described as the loss of gingival attachment due to apical migration of the gingival margin from the cementoenamel junction leading to the exposure of the root surface, is one of the most prevalent diseases in the world. The treatment of gingival recession is therefore essential to achieve good aesthetics, relieve root hypersensitivity, prevent root caries and cervical abrasions. Till date, many root coverage techniques have been implicated for the coverage of recession defect. This case report focuses on the Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access (VISTATM) technique for the root coverage procedure and simultaneous application of the microsurgical principles helps in executing the procedure in the most minimally invasive manner. Here, this technique has been accomplished in a 24-year-old female, with the chief complaint of poor aesthetics in the region of maxillary central incisors due to recession defects. Furthermore with the use of microsurgical instruments and magnifying loupes; complete coverage of the recession defects was achieved in a single stage surgery along with superior aesthetics, causing minimal trauma to the patient that was followed by an uneventful inflammatory phase.

Case Report

A 24-year-old healthy female patient reported to the Department of Periodontology, Shree Guru Gobind Singh Tricentenary University, Dental Hospital and Research Institute, Gurugram; with the chief complaint of poor aesthetics and sensitivity to cold fluids in the upper front teeth region since 2-3 months which gradually increased with time. On clinical examination, gingival recession defects of 1-2 mm were noticed in relation to the maxillary central incisors 11, 21. Radiographic examination revealed no bone loss. Patient’s oral hygiene was well maintained.

All the clinical parameters were recorded- Plaque Index (1), Probing Pocket Depth (1) Recession Width (2) Recession Depth (2) and Clinical Attachment Loss (2) and Gingival Biotype (2), using Hu-Friedy’sTM UNC-15 periodontal probe. A diagnosis of Miller’s Class I gingival recession (3) [Table/Fig-1a,b] was thus made.

For the treatment of gingival recession, till date a number of root covering approaches have been suggested like advanced flap techniques, pedicle flap techniques, free gingival graft procedure, and sub-epithelial connective tissue graft procedure (4) but in the present case, the decision of performing VISTATM technique (Zadeh H in 2011) (5) was made so as to get an access to the multiple recession defects in the aesthetic area in a single-stage surgery with the preservation of interdental papillae simultaneously. The patient was thoroughly explained about the procedure and an informed written consent was taken before starting the procedure.

Surgical technique: A presurgical rinse was advised using 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate solution (Hexidine mouthwash, ICPA Health Products Ltd). Disinfection of the extraoral surfaces using 10% povidone iodine was done and local anaesthesia (Lignocaine 2% adrenaline,1:200000; Indoco Remedies Ltd) was administered near the operatory site to ensure anaesthesia at the site. (Table/Fig 2) shows the armamentarium used in the procedure.

With the help of 15-C blade, surgical access to the site was made using the VISTATM technique, where a small vertical vestibular access incision was made (Table/Fig 3). The depth of the incision was extended up to the periosteum, so that a subperiosteal tunnel could be prepared between the periosteum and the bone with the help of a microsurgical periosteal elevator (Hu-FriedyTM-(Table/Fig 4)). The subperiosteal tunnel was extended one tooth adjacent to the site of operation i.e from the mesial of the right maxillary lateral incisor to the mesial of the left maxillary lateral incisor. Adequate elevation of the tunnel was made beyond the mucogingival junction and through the gingival margins to facilitate adequate coronal repositioning of the tunnel without any tension during the advancement. The tunnel was also extended interproximally below each papilla without making any incisions, thereby preserving the anatomy of the papillae.

To augment the healing (6), a Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) membrane was freshly prepared by collecting 5 mL of whole venous blood in two sterile vacutainer tubes without any anticoagulant added in it.The tubes were then placed in the centrifugal machine at 3000 rpm for 10 minutes (7) (Table/Fig 5). PRF was collected and trimmed to fit the recipient site, which was then carefully inserted into the subperiosteal tunnel and repositioned below the gingival margins of the surgical site (Table/Fig 6). Coronally advanced mucogingival complex was then stabilised using 5-0 silk sutures in a manner that the suture knots were stabilised at the mid-coronal point of left central incisor, by placing a composite button made of the Ivoclar bulkfill composite (Table/Fig 7).

Postoperative care: The patient was prescribed with amoxicillin 500 mg thrice daily for 5 days and zerodol SP twice daily for next 3 days. Patient was further instructed not to pull or stretch the lip and keep the site of surgery undisturbed. Chlorhexidine gluconate mouthwash (0.12%) was prescribed for mouth rinse, twice daily for 2 weeks. The patient was followed-up and the sutures were removed 2 weeks after the surgery (Table/Fig 8). The patient was then instructed to perform the roll brushing technique using a soft-bristled toothbrush (8). The patient was further evaluated postoperatively at one month (Table/Fig 9)a,b and after six months (Table/Fig 10)a,b and all the parameters were again recorded. Oral hygiene instructions were reinforced during every visit. (Table/Fig 11) depicts the clinical findings recorded preoperatively and on follow-up visit at 6 months, displaying complete root coverage.

Discussion

Gingival recession is a common clinical feature present in the population, affecting single or multiple root surfaces. It could occur due to traumatic tooth brushing, traumatic occlusion or the periodontal disease, that would eventually lead to the exposure of the root surfaces causing aesthetic concerns to the patient; along with increased incidence of sensitivity and root caries (3). Thus, the treatment of the underlying cause along with the coverage of the recession defect makes it essential for the clinician to relieve the patient’s problems (3).

Many root coverage procedures have been proposed to treat various recession defects, VISTATM technique given by Zadeh H in 2011, has been specified for the coverage of multiple recession defects being corrected in a single stage surgery, especially in the aesthetic zone (5). The surgical access to the incisors was obtained through a vestibular vertical incision with the subsequent preparation of a sub-periosteal tunnel, which was then coronally repositioned beyond the gingival margins to achieve coverage of the recession defects. The involvement of a single small incision differentiates it from other techniques in being least invasive and the avoidance of a second site of surgery as in case of the connective tissue grafts. Also, since the incision does not involve the interdental papillae it helps us preserve the gingival tissues without hampering their anatomy (5). The use of a small vertical incision has proved to be a conservative approach in the surgical procedure, thereby increasing the patient’s compliance as well.

Zadeh H. used similar technique on a 48-year-old female who presented with Miller’s Class II recession defect of 4 mm at the maxillary right central incisor and a defect of 2 mm at the left central incisor. And in the tunnel prepared, a resorbable collagen membrane followed by b-TCP (beta-Tri Calcium phosphate) embedded with rhPDGF-BB (recombinant platelet derived growth factor-BB), was placed for stimulating the healing potential of the periodontal tissues (5). Complete coverage of the multiple recession defects was achieved in this case in a single step surgical procedure using the VISTATM technique.

The use of a magnification system (Prism loupes-Carl Zeiss, 3.5x) and the microsurgical help in meticulous handling of the periodontal tissues, inflicting minimal trauma to the operating site (9). This further leads to passive closure of the wound and the patient experiences a comfortable inflammatory phase. These factors together help us achieve superior aesthetic outcomes, imperative to the clinician and the patient (9).

Conclusion

The result of the present case report indicates that VISTATM technique used along with PRF can be a substitute for the conventional techniques for the root coverage procedures as this technique has been found to be much more minimally invasive, covering multiple recession defects in one step procedure simultaneously preserving the aesthetics of the concerned area. The use of an autologous material-Platelet Rich Fibrin, further enhances healing as it releases a large number of growth factors that are essential for regenerationof the periodontal tissues.
