    2011-01-01

    In order to create optimum esthetics, function and phonetics in complete denture fabrication, it is necessary to record accurate maxillo-mandibular determinants of occlusion. This requires clinical skill to establish an accurate, verifiable and reproducible vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) and centric relation (CR). Correct vertical relation depends upon a consideration of several factors, including muscle tone, inter-dental arch space and parallelism of the ridges. Any errors made while taking maxillo-mandibular jaw relation records will result in dentures that are uncomfortable and, possibly, unwearable. The application of a tracing mechanism such as the Gothic arch tracer (a central bearing device) is a demonstrable method of determining centric relation. Intraoral Gothic arch tracers provide the advantage of capturing VDO and CR in an easy-to-use technique for practitioners. Intraoral tracing (Gothic arch tracing) is a preferred method of obtaining consistent positions of the mandible in motion (retrusive, protrusive and lateral) at a comfortable VDO.

    Here a new set-up of a 3D-scanning system for CAD/CAM in dental industry is proposed. The system is designed for direct scanning of the dental preparations within the mouth. The measuring process is based on phase correlation technique in combination with fast fringe projection in a stereo arrangement. The novelty in the approach is characterized by the following features: A phase correlation between the phase values of the images of two cameras is used for the co-ordinate calculation. This works contrary to the usage of only phase values (phasogrammetry) or classical triangulation (phase values and camera image co-ordinate values) for the determination of the co-ordinates. The main advantage of the method is that the absolute value of the phase at each point does not directly determine the coordinate. Thus errors in the determination of the co-ordinates are prevented. Furthermore, using the epipolar geometry of the stereo-like arrangement the phase unwrapping problem of fringe analysis can be solved. The endoscope like measurement system contains one projection and two camera channels for illumination and observation of the object, respectively. The new system has a measurement field of nearly 25mm × 15mm. The user can measure two or three teeth at one time. So the system can by used for scanning of single tooth up to bridges preparations. In the paper the first realization of the intraoral scanner is described.

    High intraoral pressure generated when playing some wind instruments has been linked to a variety of health issues. Prior research has focused on Western classical instruments, but no work has been published on ethnic wind instruments. This study measured intraoral pressure when playing six classes of ethnic wind instruments (N = 149): Native American flutes (n = 71) and smaller samples of ethnic duct flutes, reed instruments, reedpipes, overtone whistles, and overtone flutes. Results are presented in the context of a survey of prior studies, providing a composite view of the intraoral pressure requirements of a broad range of wind instruments. Mean intraoral pressure was 8.37 mBar across all ethnic wind instruments and 5.21 +/- 2.16 mBar for Native American flutes. The range of pressure in Native American flutes closely matches pressure reported in other studies for normal speech, and the maximum intraoral pressure, 20.55 mBar, is below the highest subglottal pressure reported in other studies during singing...

  9. Intraoral micro-identification discs.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hansen, R W

    1991-12-01

    Intraoral micro-identification discs have recently been utilized to provide a more permanent method of personal identification. A wafer of plastic or metal with a surface area of 2.5 to 5 mm2 and carrying identifying numbers and/or letters (indicia) is bonded to the buccal enamel surface of the posterior teeth. Personal identification can occur after the I.D. disc is identified and the indicia is read. Reading of photoreduced indicia requires the aid of a microscope subsequent to the removal of the microdisc. In situ reading of disc indicia is possible using low power handheld magnifiers if the size of the indicia approximates 0.3 mm. Computerization is an integral part of non-custom alpha/numeric type designs, but a custom disc carries a name, address, and other specific information unique to the manufacturer. The use of a computer improves access to the database and it decreases the amount of data placed on the disc. Microdisc bases may be fabricated using a mylar type plastic or they may be manufactured from a stainless steel blank. Plastic discs are constructed with an internal sandwich containing the photo-reduced indicia. Metal discs are marked with a photochemical etch or engraved with a computer driven YAG laser. Attachment of the disc to the enamel surface is accomplished by conventional etching and bonding techniques and are typically bonded to the buccal surface of the maxillary first permanent molar or the second primary molar. Clear composite bonding material covers the disc so that salivary contamination does not result in degradation of the indicia. Orthodontic style discs with a mesh back carry laser written information that may be cemented with conventional orthodontic bonding cement. Standardization of the indicia and overall design is considered to be an important aspect of patient and professional acceptance.

    This study was to evaluate the beam quality of intraoral X-ray equipment used at Yonsei University Dental Hospital (YUDH) using the half value layer (HVL) and the characteristic curve of intraoral standard X-ray film. The study was done using the intraoral X-ray equipment used at each clinical department at YUDH. Aluminum filter was used to determine the HVL. Intraoral standard film was used to get the characteristic curve of each intraoral X-ray equipment. Most of the HVLs of intraoral X-ray equipment were higher than the least recommended thickness, but the REX 601 model used at the operative dentistry department and the X-707 model used at the pediatric dentistry department had HVLs lower than the recommended thickness. The slopes of the characteristic curves of films taken using the PANPAS 601 model and REX 601 model at operative dentistry department, the X-70S model of prosthodontic dentistry department, and the REX 601 model at the student clinic were relatively low. HVL and the characteristic curve of X-ray film can be used to evaluate the beam quality of intraoral X-ray equipment. In order to get the best X-ray films with the least radiation exposure to patients and best diagnostic information in clinical dentistry, X-ray equipment should be managed in the planned and organized fashion.

    Full Text Available Sublingual dermoids are the rarest forms of craniofacial dermoids mostly seen in young individuals. Excision of large and deep submental dermoid is generally done via extraoral approach scarring the most prominent part of the face, which can lead to post operative scar hypertrophy and hyperpigmentation especially in non-Caucasian races. Presence of such scars leads to adverse psychological effects in young individuals. Excision via intraoral route, although technically demanding, can be simplified using basic principles of plastic surgery leading to optimal aesthetic outcome with least downtime. We excised a large sublingual dermoid extending deep to the mylohyoid muscle through intraoral approach with excellent cosmetic results. Clinicians dealing with such lesions should keep these principals in their armamentarium when dealing with this rare subset of cases.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Wound closure is a part of any surgical procedure and the objective of laceration repair or incision closure is to approximate the edges of a wound so that natural healing process may occur. Over the years new biomaterials have been discovered as an alternate to conventional suture materials. Cyanoacrylate bioadhesives are one among them. They carry the advantages of rapid application, patient comfort, resistance to infection, hemostatic properties, and no suture removal anxiety. Hence this study was undertaken to study the effect of long chain cyanoacrylate as an adhesive for intraoral wound closure and also to explore its hemostatic and antibacterial effects. Isoamyl-2-cyanoacrylate (AMCRYLATE was used as the adhesive in the study. In conclusion isoamyl cyanoacrylate can be used for intraoral wound closure, as an alternative to sutures for gluing the mucoperiosteum to bone, for example, after impaction removal, periapical surgeries, and cleft repair. Its hemostatic and antibacterial activity has to be further evaluated.

    Face transplantation (FT) is a unique and novel addition to the field of reconstructive surgery, which offers new hope to facially disfigured individuals. This review provides an overview of FT, including clinical indications, immunological principles, and functional outcomes, as well as an in-depth characterization of the intraoral hard and soft tissue findings in the six patients transplanted to date at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA, USA. Six FT recipients underwent comprehensive clinical and radiographic evaluation to assess their intraoral status, function, and overall health. The extra- and intraoral soft tissue was assessed via quantitative sensory testing. The vitality of the transplanted dental hard tissue was evaluated with clinically available testing methods. Native teeth and prostheses were also assessed. Sensation of transplanted oral mucosa varied based on time elapsed from FT, ranging from minimal at 3 months post-FT, to nearly complete recovery by approximately 24 months. There was mixed success with the integration of donor teeth (Patients 1, 4 and 6), including associated occlusal discrepancies. Mucosal complications included constriction at the donor/recipient interface (Patients 2 and 5) and solitary episodes of mucosal rejection presenting as lichenoid inflammation (Patients 2 and 4). Face transplantation represents a pivotal moment in the history of reconstructive surgery and transplant medicine, providing new optimism to patients with gross facial deformities. This report highlights the successes of FT, but also the challenges of transplanting hard and soft tissues to restore complex stomatognathic function. Further attention directed toward comprehensive oral rehabilitation in FT will contribute to improved outcomes, with the ultimate goal of restoring and optimizing patient quality of life.

    Full Text Available Context: Changes in the size of dental pulp caused by the apposition of secondary dentin and occlusal wear are morphometric parameters for estimating age. Aim: To estimate the accuracy of age evaluation by Kvaal's method and the effect of occlusal wear on age using digital intraoral periapical radiographs in a subset of the Indian population. Materials and Methods: A total of 300 teeth were radiographically evaluated using intraoral periapical digital radiographs from 50 adult patients. A few modifications were made in the design of the study compared to the original Kvaal's method. The radiographs of three teeth from each jaw were taken and morphometric measurements in ratios were analyzed, which included the pulp length to tooth length (X1, pulp length to root length (X2, pulp width to root widths at three defined levels (X3, and tooth length to root length (X4. Statistical Analysis: The Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (PCC between age and the morphological variables showed that among them X1, X2, and X3were statistically significant but not the tooth root length ratio (X4. Conclusions: The ratios X1, X2, and X3were good indicators of age and hence a multiple linear regression model for age estimation was derived using these three variables. However, it was found that X4was not a good indicator of age estimation in said population.

    The intraoral radiography is widely performed in the dental office due to low cost and agility. The doses in intraoral radiology are considered low, however it is known that doses below the threshold for deterministic radiation has the potential to induce stochastic effects. An intraoral radiography has a risk of inducing fatal cancer or serious in order of 1:10,000,000. Besides the patient, the dentist may also be being exposed to radiation during the work with the radiographics practices. The bibliographies demonstrates the lack of information on radiation protection of dentists, however, the occupational dose reduction was observed in radiology over the past 14 years. This work aims to evaluate the effective dose of radiation to which workers can be exposed dentists in dental offices to perform intraoral radiographs. In this context, a study was be conducted between June 2013 and May 2014 with 44 professionals in Curitiba city. For each dentist was given a personal dosimeter to be used for 30 days. During this period, the number of radiographies and the length of the cable triggers of the X-ray equipment was registered and, the dosimeter´s dose was read. It was observed that the cables triggers meet regulatory standards and allow dentists to get the mean minimum distance of two meters from the radiation source in 93% of cases. Through analysis of the doses, it was concluded that occupational exposures of these workers are within the recommended threshold by regulatory 453/1998 of the Ministry of Health from Brazil.

    To ascertain the feasibility of MRI as a non-ionizing protocol for routine dentomaxillofacial diagnostic imaging. Wireless coils were used for MRI of intraoral hard and soft tissues. FLASH MRI was applied in vivo with a mandible voxel size of 250 x 250 x 500 μm{sup 3}, FOV of 64 x 64 x 28 mm{sup 3} and acquisition time of 3:57 min and with a maxilla voxel size of 350 μm{sup 3} and FOV of 34 cm{sup 3} in 6:40 min. Ex vivo imaging was performed in 4:38 min, with a resolution of 200 μm{sup 3} and FOV of 36.5 cm{sup 3}. Cone beam (CB) CT of the mandible and subjects were acquired. MRI was compared to CBCT and histological sections. Deviations were calculated with intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and coefficient of variation (c{sub v}). A high congruence between CBCT, MRI and specimens was demonstrated. Hard and soft tissues including dental pulp, periodontium, gingiva, cancellous bone and mandibular canal contents were adequately displayed with MRI. Imaging of select intraoral tissues was achieved using custom MRI protocols with an easily applicable intraoral coil in a clinically acceptable acquisition time. Comparison with CBCT and histological sections helped demonstrate dimensional accuracy of the MR images. The course of the mandibular canal was accurately displayed with CBCT and MRI. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Neurofibroma is a non-circumscribed, thick and irregular benign tumor of the peripheral nerve sheath. On the skin, the diffuse and soft nature of neurofibroma often resembles "a bag of worms". It can develop at any point along a nerve and often form by late adolescence. Although neurofibromas occur predominantly as a feature of neurofibromatosis affecting the soft tissue, a few cases of solitary intraoral neurofibromas have also been reported. Solitary intraosseous neurofibroma in the oral cavity is a rare benign tumor with very few cases reported in literature. This case report presents a case of intraosseous solitary neurofibroma of maxilla in a 5-month-old male child due to the rarity of this tumor at this site in very early age, along with a discussion of its clinical, radiological, and histopathological presentation.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se describe el estudio de los fenómenos de bloqueo y ensombrecimiento en una tarea de aprendizaje espacial en un anfibio, el sapo terrestre Rhinella arenarum. Ambos fenómenos de aprendizaje, ampliamente observados en otras clases de vertebrados, se describen por primera vez en un grupo con un cerebro filogenéticamente antiguo, como es el caso de los anfibios. Específicamente, se observó durante el aprendizaje espacial: (1 bloqueo entre claves visuales asociadas a una meta, y (2 ensombrecimiento de una clave visual lejana por la presencia de una clave cercana. Este hecho permite sentar un precedente para estudiar posteriormente los mecanismos biológicos que rigen el aprendizaje espacial, en búsqueda de patrones funcionales comunes con otras clases de vertebrados, potencialmente presentes en un ancestro común.

    Intermittent parathyroid hormone (PTH) administration increases systemic and craniofacial bone mass. However, the effect of PTH therapy on healing of tooth extraction sites is unknown. The aims of this study were to determine the effect of PTH therapy on tooth extraction socket healing and to examine whether PTH intra-oral injection promotes healing. The mandibular first molars were extracted in rats, and subcutaneous PTH was administered intermittently for 7, 14, and 28 days. In a second study, maxillary second molars were extracted, and PTH was administered by either subcutaneous or intra-oral injection to determine the efficacy of intra-oral PTH administration. Healing was assessed by micro-computed tomography and histomorphometric analyses. PTH therapy accelerated the entire healing process and promoted both hard- and soft-tissue healing by increasing bone fill and connective tissue maturation. PTH therapy by intra-oral injection was as effective as subcutaneous injection in promoting tooth extraction socket healing. The findings suggest that PTH therapy promotes tooth extraction socket healing and that intra-oral injections can be used to administer PTH.

    An intraoral ranula is a retention cyst arises from the sublingual gland on the floor of the mouth as a result of ductal obstruction and fluid retention. Many techniques for management of ranulas have been described in the literature. The purpose of this study was to analyze our surgically treated pediatric patients with intraoral ranulas and to discuss the results in the light of the literature. Nine pediatric patients (six females and three males) with intraoral ranulas surgically treated were analyzed retrospectively regarding their treatment methods and results. The surgical specimens were also re-examined histologically. Seven cases of superficial, protruded and smaller than 2 cm ranulas were treated with marsupialization (unroofing). Two cases who were previously operated and then recurred had bigger than 2 cm ranulas. In these two cases, marsupialization of the ranula plus removal of the sublingual gland was performed. The most common complication was intraoperative cyst rupture of the ranula, which was noted in four cases. A recurrence was observed in only one case in the 16th months of follow up period. Our findings show that marsupialization is a suitable and effective method for pediatric intraoral ranulas, whereas in recurrent cases marsupialization of the ranula combined with total excision of sublingual gland may be preferred.

    The appearance of an intraoral mass is common in our specialty. Most are benign lesions, but some are primary malignancies. Metastases account for less than 1% of all oral malignancies. An 86 year old woman was referred to our department with a large, asymptomatic, intraoral, fast-growing mass. She had no previous cancer history or other relevant physical findings. The radiology studies showed underlying bone erosion. The histological study showed a metastatic adenocarcinoma with a suspected origin in the abdomen. We were unable to identify it by non invasive diagnostic procedures. Given the patient's general status and despite the ominous prognosis of such lesions, we decided not to perform any aggressive therapy beyond removing the oral mass, in order to maintain her quality of life. There have been no local recurrences until this time.

    Surveying intraoral structures by optical means has reached the stage where it is being discussed as a serious clinical alternative to conventional impression taking. Ease of handling and, more importantly, accuracy are important criteria for the clinical suitability of these systems. This article presents a new intraoral camera for the Cerec procedure. It reports on a study investigating the accuracy of this camera and its potential clinical indications. Single-tooth and quadrant images were taken with the camera and the results compared to those obtained with a reference scanner and with the previous 3D camera model. Differences were analyzed by superimposing the data records. Accuracy was higher with the new camera than with the previous model, reaching up to 19 microm in single-tooth images. Quadrant images can also be taken with sufficient accuracy (ca 35 microm) and are simple to perform in clinical practice, thanks to built-in shake detection in automatic capture mode.

    A novel x-ray imaging system for intraoral dental radiography is described. The imaging process is based on xeroradiographic principles. The surface of a small selenium photoreceptor is electrically charged. After insertion into a light-tight cassette, the photoreceptor is placed intraorally and x-ray exposed like film. The resultant electrostatic charge image is developed in a processor using liquid toner. The toner image is then transferred from the photoreceptor and fixed to a white plastic substrate for viewing. After cleaning, the photoreceptor is available for reuse. In contrast to film images, xeroradiographic images are exposed and processed sequentially. Processing time is approximately 20 seconds. Two image characteristics--edge enhancement and deletion--are primarily responsible for many advantageous qualities of xeroradiographic images over film images. An experimental processor was tested successfully at two dental schools.

    Schwannomas, also known as neurilemmomas, are uncommon neoplasms, derived from schwann cells. These neoplasms, although rare, should be considered in the differential diagnosis of slow growing tumour masses of the oral cavity. The growth of these tumours sometimes causes displacement and compression of the nerve of origin, giving rise to clinical signs and symptoms. It can develop at any age and there is no sex predilection. Intraorally, the tongue is the most common site followed by the palate, floor of the mouth, buccal mucosa, lips and jaws. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice for schwannomas, with few reports of recurrence or malignant transformation. In this paper, the authors report two cases of patients with intraoral schwannoma, where the preoperative clinical diagnosis was inconclusive and final diagnosis was established based on radiographic and histopathological examination.

    Introduction: The dental radiology represents about 20% of human exposure to radiation in radio diagnostic. Although the doses practiced in intraoral dentistry are considered low, they should not be ignored due to the volume of the performed procedures. This study presents the radiation protection conditions for intraoral radiology in Curitiba - PR. Methods: Data was collected through a quantitative field research of a descriptive nature during the period between September of 2013 and December of 2014. The survey sample consisted of 97 dentists and 130 intraoral equipment. The data related to the equipment was collected using structured questions and quality control evaluations. The evaluations of the entrance skin dose, the size of the radiation field and the total filtration were performed with dosimetry kits provided and evaluated by IRD/CNEN. The exposure time and voltage were measured using noninvasive detectors. The occupational dose was verified by thermoluminescent dosimeters. The existence of personal protection equipment, the type of image processing and knowledge of dentists about radiation protection were verified through the application of a questionnaire. Results: Among the survey's results, it is important to emphasize that 90% of the evaluated equipment do not meet all the requirements of the Brazilian radiation protection standards. Conclusion: The lack of knowledge about radiation protection, the poor operating conditions of the equipment, and the image processing through visual method are mainly responsible for the unnecessary exposure of patients to ionizing radiation.

    Full Text Available The aim of this clinical study was to describe the possibility of using the Nd:YAG laser device utilized in the dental offices to weld metals intraorally. The authors, before applying this technique “in vivo” on human subjects, tested the “in vitro” metal welding efficacy of dental Nd:YAG device firstly by interferometry, SEM, and EDS and subsequently by thermal camera and thermocouples in order to record temperature changes during the welding process on bovine jaws. Four implants were inserted in the edentulous maxillary arch of a 67 years old male patient. Immediately after that, a bar previously made by the dental technician was intraorally welded to the abutments by Nd:YAG laser (Fidelis Plus III, Fotona, Slovenia with these parameters: 9.90 mJ, 1 Hz, 15 msec, 0.6 mm spot. Then the prosthesis was connected to the bar with four OT Caps. This clinical study, even if preliminary, suggests that laser welding technique may be intraorally used without side effects.

De acuerdo a los estudios analizados el bloqueo de ganglio estrellado se describe como posibilidad terapéutica para el control de dolor de la angina de pecho refractaria . La descripción clásica de la inervación cardíaca consiste en tres nervios simpáticos mayores originados de los ganglios cervicales superior, medio e inferior. Esta inervación simpática en conjunto con diversos nervios parasimpáticos, se describen como el plexo cardíaco. En contraste Jane et. al. (1986 en un estudio anatómico de 23 cadáveres describe que la inervación cardiopulmonar en el hombre se origina en el ganglio estrellado y las mitades caudales de las cadenas simpáticas cervicales junto con nervios que se originan del nervio recurrente laríngeo o del vago. De estas estructuras derivan los dos plexos cardiopulmonares. De estos plexos derivan tres nervios cardíacos mayores que se proyectan hacia el corazón. Se estima que determinado porcentaje de los pacientes diagnosticados con angina inestable progresará a desarrollar una angina refractaria al tratamiento. El bloqueo de ganglio estrellado podría ser un nuevo método terapéutico para controlar el dolor de dicha condición. Sin embargo se necesitan estudios clínicos randomizados a doble ciego para obtener resultados concluyentes.

Esta técnica se ha realizado clásicamente mediante referencias anatómicas o guiado mediante fluoroscopia. Se presenta la realización de la técnica eco-guiada y las complicaciones surgidas tras la realización de la misma. Material y métodos: estudio observacional descriptivo en el que se estudiaron las complicaciones de la técnica. Se realizaron 126 procedimientos en pacientes adultos de ambos sexos. Procedimiento: se localizó el hiato sacro mediante ecografía y se insertó una aguja de Touhy 18 G en el espacio epidural caudal perforando el ligamento sacro-coccígeo. Resultados: no surgieron complicaciones graves en ninguno de los pacientes. No hubo casos de mala ventana ecográfica por lo que se pudo realizar la técnica en todos los enfermos programados. Conclusión: debido a la ausencia de complicaciones la realización de la técnica eco-guiada es una alternativa segura y fiable a la técnica guiada con fluoroscopia. Mediante esta técnica se evita la exposición de radiaciones ionizantes. Además el bloqueo caudal eco-guiado no necesita del uso de contrastes yodados y permite transportar el ecógrafo a la cabecera del enfermo en caso de ser necesario.

The aim was to present and evaluate clinical experience and results in the radial forearm free transfer for intraoral reconstructions after resections due to malignancies. Methods. This article illustrates the versatility and reliability of forearm single donor site in 21 patients with a variety of intraoral oncologic defects who underwent immediate (19 patients, 90.5% or delayed (2 patients, 9.5% reconstruction using free flaps from the radial forearm. Fascio-cutaneous flaps were used in patients with floor of the mouth (6 cases, buccal mucosa (5 cases, lip (1 case and a retromolar triangle (2 cases defects, or after hemiglossectomy (7 cases. In addition, the palmaris longus tendon was included with the flap in 2 patients that required oral sphincter reconstruction. Results. An overall success rate was 90.5%. Flap failures were detected in two (9.5% patients, in one patient due to late ischemic necrosis, which appeared one week after the surgery, and in another patient due to venous congestion, which could not be salvaged after immediate re-exploration. Two patients required re-exploration due to vein thrombosis. The donor site healed uneventfully in all patients, except one, who had partial loss of skin graft. Conclusion. The radial forearm free flap is, due to multiple advantages, an acceptable method for reconstructions after resection of intraoral malignancies.

    The study examined the changes in the decreased facial exposure dose for radiological technologists depending on increased distance between the workers and the X-ray tube head during intraoral radiography. First, the facial phantom similar to the human tissues was manufactured. The shooting examination was configured to the maxillary molars for adults (60 kVp, 10 mA, 50 msec) and for children (60 kVp, 10 mA, 20 msec), and the chamber was fixed where the facial part of the radiation worker would be placed using the intraoral radiography equipment. The distances between the X-ray tube head and the phantom were set to 10 cm, 15 cm, 20 cm, 25 cm, 30 cm, 35 cm, and 40 cm. The phantom was radiated 20 times with each examination condition and the average scattered doses were examined. The rate at the distance of 40 cm decreased by about 92.6% to 7.43% based on the scattered rays radiated at the distance of 10 cm under the adult conditions. The rate at the distance of 40 cm decreased by about 97.6% to 2.58% based on the scattered rays radiated at the distance of 10 cm under the children conditions. Protection from the radiation exposure was required during the dental radiographic examination.

    In dental restoration, its important to achieve a high-accuracy digital impression. Most of the existing intraoral measurement systems can only measure the tooth from a single view. Therfore - if we are wilng to acquire the whole data of a tooth, the scans of the tooth from multi-direction ad the data stitching based on the features of the surface are needed, which increases the measurement duration and influence the measurement accuracy. In this paper, we introduce a fringe-projection based on multi-view intraoral measurement system. It can acquire 3D data of the occlusal surface, the buccal surface and the lingual surface of a tooth synchronously, by using a senor with three mirrors, which aim at the three surfaces respectively and thus expand the measuring area. The constant relationship of the three mirrors is calibrated before measurement and can help stitch the data clouds acquired through different mirrors accurately. Therefore the system can obtain the 3D data of a tooth without the need to measure it from different directions for many times. Experiments proved the availability and reliability of this miniaturized measurement system.

    Full Text Available This study aims to compare the impact of buccal and lingual brackets on the accuracy of dental arch data acquired by 4 different digital intraoral scanners. Two pairs of dental casts, one with buccal brackets and the other with lingual brackets, were used. Digital measurements of the 3D images were compared to the actual measurements of the dental models, which were considered standard values. The horizontal measurements included intercanine widths and intermolar widths. The Mann–Whitney U test was performed for comparisons. iTero® and Trios® both showed high accuracy with relatively small maximum deviation of measurements. iTero showed a significantly higher accuracy in most of the arch width measurements on the buccal bracket model than on the lingual model (P<0.05. Zfx IntraScan® and E4D Dentist® produced maximum deviations of more than 2 mm from both the buccal and the lingual bracket models. After comparing the degree of distortion of the arch on the digital scans with actual measurements of the same models, iTero and Trios proved to be excellent in terms of trueness and precision. Nevertheless, digital intraoral scanners should be used more cautiously in arches with lingual brackets than in those with buccal brackets.

    Purpose: The purpose was to illustrate the sonographic changes of tongue cancer after radical radiotherapy. Materials and methods: In 24 patients with tongue cancer treated by interstitial brachytherapy (BRT) (uneventful recovery n=16, recurrence n=5, severe soft tissue complication n=3), follow-up examination were performed and both the margin and the vascular pattern were retrospectively assessed. We basically performed US examination at least once every 3 months after BRT within 1 year during follow-up period. Results: In the healing process, intraoral sonography shows an unclear margin immediately after brachytherapy and a transient increase of the vascularity lasted within 6 months after BRT, followed by a decrease in the vascularity. The large difference in echogenicity between the primary site and the surrounding tissue and the increased difference suggested the possibility of either radiation ulceration or recurrence. Conclusion: Intraoral sonography could depict the sequence changes of the tongue after BRT, and it was thus useful to confirm the clinical findings of either radiation ulcers or recurrence.

    Computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) is increasingly becoming a standard feature and service provided to patients in dentist offices and denture manufacturing laboratories. Although the quality of the tools and data has slowly improved in the last years, due to various surface measurement challenges, practical, accurate, invivo, real-time 3D high quality data acquisition and processing still needs improving. Advances in GPU computational power have allowed for achieving near real-time 3D intraoral in-vivo scanning of patient's teeth. We explore in this paper, from a real-time perspective, a hardware-software-GPU solution that addresses all the requirements mentioned before. Moreover we exemplify and quantify the hard and soft deadlines required by such a system and illustrate how they are supported in our implementation.

    Odontomas, the most common odontogenic tumors, occur more frequently in the maxilla and are rarely larger than a tooth. They are usually found incidentally on routine dental radiographs during the second decade of life. The treatment of choice is surgical removal, and large tumors are challenging as damage may occur to surrounding anatomic structures. In this article we describe a "giant" compound odontoma occupying the entire body of the mandible and ramus in a 7-year-old girl. A conservative intraoral enucleation was used to avoid facial scarring and preserve mandibular continuity and function. The huge bony defect healed completely without a bone graft or further intervention. This case report emphasizes the importance of the early diagnosis of these lesions and a conservative surgical approach as well as the extraordinary healing potential of young patients.

  18. How dogs lap: ingestion and intraoral transport in Canis familiaris.

    It has recently been suggested that the mechanism for lifting liquid from a bowl into the oral cavity during lapping is fundamentally different in cats and dogs: cats use adhesion of liquid to the tongue tip while dogs 'scoop' with their backwardly curled tongue. High-speed light videos and X-ray videos show that on the contrary, both cats and dogs use the mechanism of adhesion. Liquid is transported through the oral cavity to the oesophagus, against gravity, on the surface of the tongue as it is drawn upwards, then a tight contact between the tongue surface and palatal rugae traps liquid and prevents its falling out as the tongue is protruded. At least three cycles are needed for intraoral transport of liquid in the dog.

    Schwannoma is a relatively uncommon, slow-growing benign tumor that is derived apparently from the Schwann cells. The tongue is the most common site, followed by the palate, floor of mouth, buccal mucosa, lips, and jaws. It can present itself at any age. Usually, this lesion is not taken into account during clinical practice and the differential diagnosis includes numerous benign neoformations based on epithelial and connective tissues. Immunohistochemical features can be useful in determining the neural differentiation. Anti-S100 protein is probably the most used antibody to identify this lesion. The schwannoma is usually a solitary lesion, and can be multiple when associated with neurofibromatosis. In the current study, authors report a case of an intraoral schwannoma situated at the vestibule with 20 years of evolution treated by complete surgical excision. The diagnosis was established based on clinical, histopathological, and immunohistochemical aspects. The patient is under clinical control, with no signs of recurrence even after four years.

    In this work dosimetric analysis using thermoluminescence technique to study the beams characteristics of x-rays employed in dental radiology has been carried out. The obtained results with CaSO{sub 4}:Dy thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD) were compared to the doses obtained with parallel-plates ionization chamber. Dosimetric evaluations were also done using radiographic films of large dimensions. The x-rays equipments analyzed were installed in the radiological services of Odontology Department of Sergipe Federal University (U.F.S.). Depending on the anatomical region to be examined the proper exposure time was select, for a fix voltage of 70 kV. The results with TLD and ionization chamber have been determined to female and male individuals. The intraoral regions analysed were the peri apical of the incisors, molar and pre-molar teeth and the occlusive region. These regions were simulated using acrylic plates absorbers installed on the film packet holder. The evaluation of the depth doses in the intraoral tissue was obtained using different acrylic plate thickness. The air kerma values have been evaluated with the ionization chamber located in the dental cone exit of the x-rays equipments. The integrated areas of the thermoluminescent glow curves showed coherent values when compared to the ones obtained with the ionization chamber and both methods presented a linear dependence with the exposition time. The analyses with films have allowed the evaluation of the beam scattering in the simulator apparatus. The studies had proven that the analysis of superficial dose and in depth used in dental radiology can be carried with thermoluminescent dosimeters. (authors)

    Putnam, A H; Shelton, R L; Kastner, C U

    1986-03-01

    Intraoral pressures and oral flows were measured as normal talkers produced /p lambda/ and /si/ under experimental conditions that perturbed the usual aeromechanical production characteristics of the consonants. A translabial pressure-release device was used to bleed off intraoral pressure during /p/. Bite-blocks were used to open the anterior bite artificially during /s/. For /p/, intraoral pressure decreased and translabial air leakage increased as bleed orifice area increased. For /s/, flow increased as the area of sibilant constriction increased, but differential pressure across the /s/ oral constriction did not vary systematically with changes in its area. Flow on postconsonantal vowels /lambda/ and /i/ did not vary systematically across experimental conditions. The data imply that maintenance of perturbed intraoral pressure was more effective when compensatory options included opportunity for increased respiratory drive and structural adjustments at the place of consonant articulation rather than increased respiratory drive alone.

    Lead (Pb) contamination in the black paper that recovers intraoral films (BKP) has been investigated. BKP samples were collected from the Radiology Clinics of the Dental School of Ribeirao Preto, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. For sake of comparison, four different methods were used. The results revealed the presence of high lead levels, well above the maximum limit allowed by the legislation. Pb contamination levels achieved after the following treatments: paper digestion in nitric acid, microwave treatment, DIN38414-54 method and TCLP method were 997 {mu}g g{sup -1}, 189 {mu}g g{sup -1}, 20.8 {mu}g g{sup -1}, and 54.0 {mu}g g{sup -1}, respectively. Flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) were employed for lead determination according to the protocols of the applied methods. Lead contamination in used BKP was confirmed by scanning electron microscopy coupled with energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (SEM-EDS). All the SEM imaging was carried out in the secondary electron mode (SE) and backscattered-electron mode (QBSD) following punctual X-ray fluorescence spectra. Soil contamination derived from this product revealed the urgent need of addressing this problem. These elevated Pb levels, show that a preliminary treatment of BKP is mandatory before it is disposed into the common trash. The high lead content of this material makes its direct dumping into the environment unwise.

  12. Fast disintegrating tablets of nisoldipine for intra-oral administration.

    Science.gov (United States)

    El Maghraby, Gamal M; Elsergany, Ramy N

    2014-09-01

    Nisoldipine is a calcium channel blocker with low and variable oral bioavailability. This was attributed to slow dissolution and presystemic metabolism. Accordingly, the objective of this work was to enhance the dissolution rate of nisoldipine to formulate fast disintegrating tablets with rapid dissolution. Binary solid dispersions (SD) were prepared for the drug with hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose E5 (HPMC), polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), Pluronic F68 or polyethylene glycol 6000 (PEG 6000). SD formation increased the dissolution rate compared to pure drug with the corresponding physical mixtures failing to provide the same dissolution enhancement. This indicates that the SD enhanced dissolution is not due to the solubilizing effect of the polymer and can be due to physical change in the drug crystal which was confirmed by thermal analysis. SD with HPMC and PVP were selected for preparation of fast disintegrating tablets as they liberated most of the drug in the first 5 min. HPMC-based tablets disintegrated rapidly and released most of the drug in the first 2 min which correlated with the corresponding SD. In contrast, PVP-based tablets disintegrated slowly with gradual dissolution. This can be attributed to the binding effect of PVP. The study developed fast disintegrating tablet for intra-oral administration.

    To compare the diagnostic accuracy of Kodak Insight film with other intra-oral films in the detection of dental caries. Periapical radiographs of 99 extracted human teeth with sound proximal surfaces and interproximal artificial cavities were made on Kodak Ultra speed, Ektaspeed, Agfa Ektaspeed and Kodak Insight films and automatically processed. Six dentists examined the presence of dental caries using a five-point confidence rating scale and compared the diagnostic accuracy by ROC (Receiver Operating Characteristic) analysis and ANOVA test. The sensitivity of Kodak Ultra speed, Ektaspeed, Agfa Ektaspeed and Insight film were 0.84, 0.77, 0.75 and 0.79 respectively. The specificity of Kodak Ultra speed, Ektaspeed, Agfa Ektaspeed and Insight film were 0.97, 0.95, 0.96 and 0.94 respectively. The mean ROC areas (Az) of Kodak Ultra speed, Ektaspeed, Agfa Ektaspeed and Insight film were 0.917, 0.910, 0.894, 0.909 respectively. There was no significant differences between Az of Insight film and other films (p = 0.178). Theses results suggested that Kodak Insight film have the comparative diagnostic accuracy of dental caries with Ultraspeed and Ektaspeed films. (77)

  16. IDEFIX: identification of dental fixtures in intraoral x rays

    Lehmann, Thomas M.; Schmitt, Walter; Horn, Harald; Hillen, Walter

    1996-04-01

    In dental implantology more than one hundred enossal implant systems are in use. Once embedded, the dental x-ray examination is the most important tool for determining implants' producer, name, and type. In this paper, we present a system for automatic detection and identification of dental fixtures in intraoral x rays (IDEFIX) combining common direct digital image acquisition techniques with specially designed image analysis. IDEFIX can process any digital radiograph (e.g. RVG, Sens-A-Ray, Schick, Sidexis, Digora) as well as digitized dental films. A reference database has been generated by precise measurement on the implant systems used so far (eight implants) including parameters like length, diameter, and cross section area. After binarization of the current digital x-ray image, a parameter set is extracted from each detected object applying mathematical morphology. All objects are classified using a simplified nearest neighbor method and the Euclidean distance metric. If the distance of the objects' parameter set to one of the reference sets is below a given threshold, name and type of the identified dental fixture are displayed on the screen. Otherwise, the actual object will be rejected as a no-implant. IDEFIX has been evaluated by processing various in-vitro acquired radiographs. Different implants were classified captured with identical conditions as well as acquired varying the angulation of the x-ray tube. It is shown that misangulations up to twenty degrees are tolerable preserving correct identification. Other image structures like teeth or fillings result in large distances to all reference parameter sets and, therefore, they are reliably recognized as non-implants.

  17. Chapter 9--face sensorimotor cortex neuroplasticity associated with intraoral alterations.

    2011-01-01

    Loss of teeth or dental attrition is a common clinical occurrence associated with altered somatosensation and impaired oral motor behavior (e.g., mastication, deglutition, phonation). Oral rehabilitation aims at restoring these sensorimotor functions to improve patients' quality of life. Recent studies have implicated neuroplastic changes within the primary motor cortex (M1) in the control of limb motor behaviors following manipulations of sensory inputs to or motor outputs from the central nervous system as well as in learning and adaptation processes. However, limited data are available of the neuroplastic capabilities of face-M1 in relation to orofacial motor functions. The overall objective of our series of studies was to use intracortical microstimulation (ICMS) and recordings of evoked muscle electromyographic activity to test if neuroplastic changes occur in the ICMS-defined motor representations of the tongue-protrusive (genioglossus, GG) and jaw-opening (anterior digastric, AD) muscles within the rat face-M1 and adjacent face primary somatosensory cortex (face-S1) following several different types of intraoral manipulations. We found that a change in diet consistency was not associated with statistically significant changes in AD and GG motor representations. However, incisor extraction resulted, one week later, in a significantly increased AD representation within the contralateral face-M1 and face-S1, and incisor trimming produced time-dependent changes in the AD motor representation. These novel findings underscore the neuroplastic capabilities of the face sensorimotor cortex and point to its possible role in adaptation to an altered peripheral state or altered sensorimotor behavior. Further insights into the neuroplastic capabilities of the face sensorimotor cortex promise to improve therapeutic strategies aimed at the restoration of oral functions, particularly in patients suffering from orofacial sensorimotor deficits or pain.

    Clinical examination is still the gold standard of postoperative free flap monitoring, but with intraorally situated and/or buried flaps, it can be difficult or impossible. Microdialysis is a sampling technique which offers the possibility to monitor the metabolism of a flap continuously. Ischemia can be detected by monitoring the changes in glucose, lactate, and pyruvate levels in interstitial fluid of the specific tissue. Our aim was to use microdialysis to monitor the metabolism of free flaps used for reconstructions inside the oral cavity/oropharynx and to evaluate the reliability and usefulness of this new monitoring method.Twenty-five consecutive patients who underwent oral cavity/oropharynx cancer resection and immediate reconstruction with free flap were included in the study. A microdialysis catheter was placed into the subcutaneous adipose tissue of the flap in the end of the surgical procedure. Dialysate samples were taken on an hourly basis for 72 hours postoperatively. Routine clinical monitoring was carried out by experienced nursing staff. Clinical findings were recorded and later compared with microdialysis values. Two flaps out of 25 failed in spite of reoperations. In both problem cases, microdialysis indicated ischemia 1 to 2 hours before it became clinically evident. During flap ischemia, the lactate/pyruvate ratio increased, glucose concentrations reduced, whereas lactate level increased when compared with normal values. Our results indicate that microdialysis is safe for the patient and the flap. It can reliably detect flap ischemia at an early stage. This is especially useful in buried flaps when clinical monitoring is difficult. Microdialysis may also reduce the patient discomfort caused by repeated clinical examination of the flap.

    The aim of this study is to describe the use of an intraoral assistive technology for a patient with idiopathic generalized muscular dystonia, presenting temporomandibular disorder and severe anterior tooth mobility and diastema. A multidisciplinary team developed an intraoral device to provide typing and painting functions, and promote relaxation of masticatory muscles without compromising the teeth and supporting tissue structures. The occlusal splint associated with the device promoted muscle relaxation and relief of the signs and symptoms of temporomandibular dysfunction, in this case with generalized muscle dystonia, allowing typing and painting with her mouth without causing tooth mobility or occlusal alteration. This intraoral device has low cost, easy adaptation and was efficient in TMD symptoms. Furthermore, the patient returned to her rehabilitation allowing performance of her duties without compromising dental structures, facilitating the social and the digital inclusion.

    To measure and compare the intraoral pH and temperature of individuals during sleep with and without mouth breathing. Ten healthy participants [mean age = 25·8 (± 4·3)] wore a custom-made appliance fitted with a pH probe and thermocouple for two sets of 48 h. Continuous pH and temperature measurements were taken from the palatal aspect of the upper central incisors. To simulate mouth breathing during sleep, participants wore a nose clip for two nights of the four, with the first group (n = 5) wearing the nose clip during the first night and the rest (n = 5) wearing the nose clip during the second night of sleep to balance any potential bias from the wearing sequence. Both qualitative and quantitative analyses were conducted. The mean intraoral pH during daytime was 7·3 (± 0·4) and during sleep was 7·0 (± 0·5). The mean intraoral pH during sleep with mouth breathing was 6·6 (± 0·5), which was statistically significant compared with the normal sleep condition (P mouth breathing, intraoral pH showed a greater fall over a longer period of time. The mean intraoral temperature was 33·1 °C (± 5·2) during daytime and 33·3 °C (± 6·1) during sleep, with no statistical significance between sleep with and without mouth breathing (P > 0·05). The results suggest that mouth breathing during sleep is related to a decrease in intraoral pH compared with normal breathing during sleep, and this has been proposed as a causal factor for dental erosion and caries.

    The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of one and five sessions of treatment for intra-oral injection phobia in 55 subjects fulfilling the DSM-IV criteria for specific phobia. The subjects were randomly assigned to one or five sessions of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) performed by dentists. Assessments included behavioural tests and self-report instruments used pretreatment, post-treatment, and at 1 yr of follow-up. The dental anxiety scale (DAS), the injection phobia scale-anxiety, and the mutilation questionnaires were applied. Mean avoidance duration of intra-oral injections before treatment was 7.0 yr. The results showed that 89% of the subjects had received intra-oral injections from a regular dentist during the 1-yr follow-up. The only significant difference between the one- and the five-session groups was that the five-session group reported less anxiety (as measured using the DAS) at 1 yr of follow-up. It was concluded that both treatments performed by dentists specially trained in CBT have a significant treatment effect on the intra-oral injection phobia.

    The digital intraoral impression is a central part in today's CAD/CAM dentistry. With its possibilities, new treatment options for the patient is provided and the prosthetic workflow is accelerated. Nowadays, the major issue with intraoral scanning systems is to gain more accuracy especially for larger scan areas and to simplify clinical handling for the dentist. The aim of this study was to investigate different scanning strategies regardingtheir accuracy with full arch scans in an in-vitro study design. A reference master model was used for the digital impressions with the Lava COS, the Cerec Bluecam and a powderfree intraoral scanning system, Cadent iTero. The trueness and precision of each scanning protocol was measured. Lava COS provides the a trueness of 45.8 microm with the scanning protocol recommended from the manufacturer. A different scanning protocol shows significantly lower accuracy (trueness +/- 90.2 microm). Cerec Bluecam also benefits from an optimal scanning protocol with a trueness of +/- 23.3 microm compared to +/- 52.5 microm with a standard protocol. The powderfree impression system Cadent iTero shows also a high accurate full-arch scan with a trueness of +/- 35.0 microm and a precision of +/- 30.9 microm. With the current intraoral scanning systems, full arch dental impressions are possible with a high accuracy, if adequate scan strategies are used. The powderfree scanning system provides the same level of accuracy compared to scanning systems with surface pretreatment.

    Introduction: Archwires act as gears to move teeth with light, continuous forces. However, the intraoral use of orthodontic archwires is liable to surface deposits which alter the mechanical properties of archwires, causing an increase in the friction coefficient. Objectives: To evaluate the surface changes of the stainless steel archwires after 6 weeks of intraoral use and its influence on frictional resistance during sliding mechanics. Materials and Methods: As-received rectangular 0.019” × 0.025” stainless steel orthodontic archwires (control) were compared with the archwires retrieved after the final phase of leveling and alignment stage of orthodontic treatment collected after 6 weeks of intraoral exposure (test samples) from 10 patients undergoing treatment. The control and test samples were used to evaluate surface debris using Scanning Electron Microscopy, surface roughness was assessed using Atomic Force Microscope and frictional forces were measured using Instron Universal Testing Machine in the buccal inter-bracket region that slides through the molar tube for space closure. Unpaired t-test and Pearson correlation tests were used for statistical analysis (P orthodontic archwires after their intraoral exposure. Significant positive correlations (P orthodontic forces. Thus, continuing the same archwire after levelling and alignment for space closure is not recommended. PMID:27843884

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT The computer-aided design (CAD and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM process chain for dental restorations starts with taking an impression of the clinical situation. For this purpose, either extraoral digitization of gypsum models or intraoral digitization can be used. Despite the increasing use of dental digitizing systems, there are only few studies on their accuracy. Objective This study compared the accuracy of various intraoral and extraoral digitizing systems for dental CAD/CAM technology. Material and Methods An experimental setup for three-dimensional analysis based on 2 prepared ceramic master dies and their corresponding virtual CAD-models was used to assess the accuracy of 10 extraoral and 4 intraoral optical non-contact dental digitizing systems. Depending on the clinical procedure, 10 optical measurements of either 10 duplicate gypsum dies (extraoral digitizing or directly of the ceramic master dies (intraoral digitizing were made and compared with the corresponding CAD-models. Results The digitizing systems showed differences in accuracy. However, all topical systems were well within the benchmark of ±20 µm. These results apply to single tooth measurements. Conclusions Study results are limited, since only single teeth were used for comparison. The different preparations represent various angles and steep and parallel opposing tooth surfaces (incisors. For most digitizing systems, the latter are generally the most difficult to capture. Using CAD/CAM technologies, the preparation angles should not be too steep to reduce digitizing errors. Older systems might be limited to a certain height or taper of the prepared tooth, whereas newer systems (extraoral as well as intraoral digitization do not have these limitations.

    Full Text Available Introducción: El hombro doloroso constituye una de las consultas más frecuentes en atención primaria, y afecta entre el 7 y el 34% de la población general adulta. La etiología más frecuente es la disfunción del manguito de los rotadores, que supone más del 70% de los casos, incluyendo aquí la tendinitis, la bursitis y la rotura de éste o de alguno de sus componentes. Se han postulado diversos tratamientos para el hombro doloroso. El objetivo del estudio es exponer una nueva técnica para los pacientes que son resistentes a los tratamientos convencionales. Material y métodos: Se analizó la eficacia de la técnica mediante una escala analógica visual (EVA que se pasó a los pacientes en el momento basal y al mes posterior a su realización. En el mismo período se valoró el grado de satisfacción de los pacientes y el porcentaje de mejoría de éstos. Por último, se analizaron las complicaciones, si existieron, y se preguntó a los pacientes si repetirían la técnica o no. Resultados: La técnica se realizó en 12 pacientes. La EVA basal media fue de 8,5 ± 1 y descendió a 5,5 ± 3 tras el procedimiento. Cuando se analizan los pacientes en los que se obtuvo beneficio, el descenso de la EVA fue cercano a 5 puntos con respecto al basal. Cuando se analizan estos datos se podría decir que en patología artrósica el valor de la técnica es mayor que en los pacientes en los que predomina la patología de partes blandas. El porcentaje medio de mejoría en la muestra completa fue de 45,83 ± 42,05. Los pacientes en los que se realizó la técnica, ante la pregunta de si repetirían o no la técnica, 7 repetirían frente a 5 que no lo harían. No se recogió ninguna complicación derivada del procedimiento. Conclusiones: El bloqueo tricompartimental del hombro parece una técnica prometedora en el tratamiento del hombro doloroso, principalmente en los casos en los que la patología subyacente es de origen artrósico.Introduction: Painful

    Full Text Available Hemangiomas are neoplastic proliferations of endothelial cells, characterized by a period of growth after birth, and eventual spontaneous involution. The course can be uneventful with spontaneous resolution; or it may be marked by complications such as infection, bleeding, ulceration, visual defects and feeding difficulties. Apart from these, rare life-threatening complications such as congestive heart failure and consumption coagulopathy may also be seen. Although hemangiomas commonly occur in the head and neck region, intraoral occurrence is relatively rare. A port wine stain is defined as a macular telangiectatic patch which is present at birth and remains throughout life. They may be localized or extensive, affecting a whole limb. This article reports a rare case of co-occurrence of port wine stain with intraoral hemangioma.

    2016-03-01

    This paper presented our current research about the intra-oral scanner made by MIRDC. Utilizing the sinusoidal pattern for fast phase-shifting technique to deal with 3D digitalization of human dental surface profile, the development of pseudo-phase shifting digital projection can easily achieve one type of full-field scanning instead of the common technique of the laser line scanning. Based on traditional Moiré method, we adopt projecting fringes and retrieve phase reconstruction to forward phase unwrapping. The phase difference between the plane and object can be exactly calculated from the desired fringe images, and the surface profile of object was probably reconstructed by using the phase differences information directly. According to our algorithm of space mapping between projections and capturing orientation exchange of our intra-oral scanning configuration, the system we made certainly can be proved to achieve the required accuracy of +/-10μm to deal with intra-oral scanning on the basis of utilizing active triangulation method. The final purpose aimed to the scanning of object surface profile with its size about 10x10x10mm3.

    Wine "after-odour" defined as the long lasting aroma perception that remains after wine swallowing is an outstanding characteristic in terms of wine quality but a relatively unstudied phenomenon. Among the different parameters that might affect wine after-odour, the adsorption of odorants by the oral mucosa could be important but has been little explored. In this work, the impact of the chemical characteristics of aroma compounds on intra-oral adsorption was assessed by an in vivo approach that determined the amounts of odorants remaining in expectorated wine samples. In addition, the subsequent aroma release after in-mouth wine exposure was studied by means of intra-oral SPME/GC-MS using three different panellists. Oral adsorption of the aroma compounds added to the wines ranged from 6% to 43%, depending on their physicochemical characteristics. A progressive intra-oral aroma decrease at different decay rates depending on compound type and panellist was also found. The strength of the aroma-oral mucosa interactions seems to explain these results more than the amount of compound adsorbed by the oral mucosa.

    Intra-oral magnets are used in dentistry for a variety of purposes, and their susceptibility to corrosion is of great clinical importance. Although a number of in vitro models have been developed to study corrosion of intra-oral magnets, none have attempted to determine the possible contribution to corrosion made by oral bacteria, which are known to form a biofilm on intra-oral appliances. We have exposed demagnetized neodymium/iron/boron (Nd2Fe14B) magnets to an artificial saliva in the presence and absence of a biofilm of Streptococcus sanguils, one of the predominant organisms in the oral cavity. Over a 21-d period, a 3.2% decrease in the mass of the magnets was observed when S. sanguis was present, while in the absence of the organism the decrease in mass was 1.4%. We also examined the ability of poly(para-xylylene), a commonly-used coating, to protect the magnets against corrosion. No decrease in the mass of magnets coated with poly(para-xylylene) was detected over a 21-d period in the presence of S. sanguis. This study has shown that biofilms of S. sanguis cause appreciable corrosion of Nd2Fe14B magnets which is greater than that occurring in the absence of the organism, and that a coating of poly(para-xylylene) provides protection against such corrosion.

    Treatment of pain in newborns is associated with problematic drug side effects. Previous studies demonstrate that an intraoral infusion of sucrose and other sweet components of mother's milk are effective in alleviating pain in infant rats and humans. These findings are of considerable significance, as sweet tastants are used in pain and stress management in a number of clinical procedures performed in human infants. The ability of sweet stimuli to induce analgesia is absent in adult rats, suggesting that this is a developmentally transient phenomenon. However, the age range over which intraoral sucrose is capable of producing analgesia is not known. We investigated the effects of intraoral sucrose (7.5%) on nocifensive withdrawal responses to thermal and mechanical stimuli in naive and inflamed rats at postnatal days (P) P0-21. In some rats, Complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) was injected in a fore- or hindpaw to produce inflammation. In non-inflamed animals, for noxious thermal stimuli, sucrose-induced analgesia emerged at P3, peaked at P7-10, then progressively declined and was absent at P17. For mechanical forepaw stimuli, sucrose-induced analgesia emerged, and was maximal at approximately P10, then declined and was absent at P17. By contrast, maximal sucrose-induced analgesia for mechanical hindpaw stimuli was delayed (P13) compared to that for the forepaw, although it was also absent at P17. In inflamed animals, sucrose reduced hyperesthesia and hyperalgesia assessed with mechanical stimuli. Sucrose-induced analgesia in inflamed animals was initially present at P3 for the forepaw and P13 for the hindpaw, and was absent by P17 for both limbs. Intraoral sucrose produced significantly greater effects on responses in fore- and hindpaws in inflamed rats than in naive rats indicating that it reduces hyperalgesia and allodynia beyond its effects on responses in naive animals. These findings support the hypothesis that sucrose has a selective influence on analgesic

    Full Text Available La anestesia locorregional es uno de los mejores métodos para el control y manejo del dolor intra y postoperatorio. En el paciente pediátrico este tipo de analgesia normalmente se realiza junto con anestesia general o sedación profunda, por la escasa o nula colaboración de los niños. Para la cirugía de hombro y antebrazo uno de los bloqueos periféricos más eficaces es el del plexo braquial por abordaje interescalénico, considerando siempre su elevada incidencia de complicaciones como la parálisis frénica ipsolateral, entre otras. Presentamos el caso de un niño de 13 años de edad propuesto para injerto de húmero de cadáver en miembro superior derecho. Un año antes se realizó resección de tumor refiriéndose un mal manejo del dolor postoperatorio con mórficos en PCA. Como técnica anestésica se realizó una anestesia general y, posteriormente, un bloqueo del plexo braquial por vía interescalénica con ecografía y neuroestimulador, y posterior colocación de catéter para analgesia en el postoperatorio. Se administraron 10 ml de levobupivacaína al 0,5%, sin necesidad de más analgésicos suplementares durante las 6 h que duró la intervención quirúrgica. Al finalizar la cirugía el paciente fue extubado en quirófano objetivando ausencia de dolor, síndrome de Horner y parálisis diafragmática izquierda sin repercusión clínica. Durante las 24 h siguientes se administraron 10 ml/h de ropivacaína al 0,25% a través del catéter, y así se consiguió una analgesia excelente y sin necesidad de bolos a demanda de anestésico local. En conclusión, la anestesia locorregional aporta una adecuada analgesia peri y postoperatoria, disminuyendo la necesidad de analgésicos adyuvantes. La utilización de la ecografía en la realización del bloqueo interescalénico permite no sólo una disminución de las dosis necesarias de anestésico local, sino también una visualización directa en la zona de administración, por lo que podr

    . El objetivo de este estudio fue comparar el bloqueo de los nervios supraescapular y axilar en las cirugías artroscópicas de hombro con el abordaje interescalénico del plexo braquial. MÉTODO: Sesenta y ocho pacientes fueron ubicados en dos grupos de 34, de acuerdo con la técnica utilizada: grupo Interescalénico (GI y grupo selectivo (GS, siendo ambos abordajes realizados con neuroestimulador. En el GI, y después de la respuesta motora adecuada, se inyectaron 30 mL de levopubivacaina en exceso enantiomérico de un 50% al 0,33% con adrenalina 1:200.000. En el GS, y después de la respuesta motora del nervio supraescapular y axilar, se inyectaron 15 mL de la misma sustancia en cada nervio. Enseguida se realizó la anestesia general. Las variables que se evaluaron fueron: tiempo para la realización de los bloqueos, analgesia, consumo de opioide, bloqueo motor, estabilidad cardiocirculatoria, satisfacción y aceptabilidad por parte del paciente. RESULTADOS: El tiempo para la ejecución del bloqueo interescalénico fue significativamente menor que para la realización del bloqueo selectivo. La analgesia fue significativamente mayor en el postoperatorio inmediato en el GI y en el postoperatorio tardío en el GS. El consumo de morfina fue significativamente mayor en la primera hora en el GS. El bloqueo motor fue significativamente menor en el GS. La estabilidad cardiocirculatoria, satisfacción y aceptabilidad de la técnica por el paciente no fueron diferentes entre los grupos. Ocurrió un fallo en el GI y dos en el GS. CONCLUSIONES: Ambas técnicas son seguras y eficaces con el mismo grado de satisfacción y de aceptabilidad. El bloqueo selectivo de ambos nervios presentó una analgesia satisfactoria, con la ventaja de proporcionar un bloqueo motor restringido al hombro.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Shoulder arthroscopic surgeries evolve with intense postoperative pain.

    Reconstruction of intraoral mucosal defects following tumor ablative surgery can be a challenging problem. The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of the palatal island mucoperiosteal flap (PIMPF) in reconstructing intraoral defects resulting from ablative tumor resections. The study included eight consecutive patients who underwent primary reconstruction using the PIMPF following intraoral tumor resections in a 5-year period by a single surgeon at a tertiary referral institute. Patients included five men and three women ranging in age from 32 to 69 years. Four patients were smokers (averaging 40 pack-years). None had received prior irradiation therapy. Resultant surgical defects ranged in size from 6 to 16.5 cm(2) (mean 12.3 ± 3.9) and included areas of soft/hard palate, lateral pharyngeal wall, retromolar trigone and inner cheek. Final pathological findings revealed three benign and five malignant tumors, mostly from minor salivary gland origin. All patients began oral diet between postoperative days 1 and 4 (mean 2 days). All flaps survived well with good postoperative wound healing except one minor flap dehiscence that eventually healed by granulation tissue with no further surgery needed. All donor sites were completely healed by remucosalization within 5-13 weeks. No patients manifested permanent velopharyngeal insufficiency, speech impairment, or airway compromise after a follow-up period ranging from 13 to 56 months (mean 31.3 ± 15.9). The PIMPF was found to be an attractive single-staged versatile and reliable reconstructive option for postero-lateral oral cavity/oropharyngeal defects that provides well-vascularized, sensate mucosa with minimal morbidity.

    Full Text Available Background & Objective: Infection control in dental centers is affected by the persons’ attitude and knowledge about mechanisms of infection transmission. This study was designed to evaluate the knowledge and the attitude of Shiraz dentists about infection control during intraoral radiographies preparation. Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional, and analytical research, the attitude and the knowledge of 45 male and 25 female, randomly selected dentists, were obtained through completion of a researcher- planed questioner which its validity and reliability had been confirmed. Data were analyzed using Cronbach`s alpha, one-way ANOVA, student’s t-test, and Pearson’s correlation coefficient in SPSS (V.21. Results: The average of the dentists’ age was 40.59±10.72 and their average occupational experience was 13.49±9.75 years. The mean score obtained for knowledge about infection control during intraoral radiographic procedures was less than fifty percent of total obtainable score, and was assessed as weak knowledge. There was no significant difference in the level of knowledge between studied male and female dentists (P>0.05. In addition, no significant relationship was detected between level, age/experience, and the university of education (P>0.05. The attitude of the dentists about infection control during intraoral radiography preparation assessed as moderate to good level. Conclusions: The results showed that the main reason for the present problems is insufficient knowledge of the dentists in related subjects. Therefore, the solution, which is recommended among dentists, is to raise their awareness and to change their attitudes and culture in order to improve their performance.

    Full Text Available Intra-oral scanners will play a central role in digital dentistry in the near future. In this study the accuracy of three intra-oral scanners was compared.A master model made of stone was fitted with three high precision manufactured PEEK cylinders and scanned with three intra-oral scanners: the CEREC (Sirona, the iTero (Cadent and the Lava COS (3M. In software the digital files were imported and the distance between the centres of the cylinders and the angulation between the cylinders was assessed. These values were compared to the measurements made on a high accuracy 3D scan of the master model.The distance errors were the smallest and most consistent for the Lava COS. The distance errors for the Cerec were the largest and least consistent. All the angulation errors were small.The Lava COS in combination with a high accuracy scanning protocol resulted in the smallest and most consistent errors of all three scanners tested when considering mean distance errors in full arch impressions both in absolute values and in consistency for both measured distances. For the mean angulation errors, the Lava COS had the smallest errors between cylinders 1-2 and the largest errors between cylinders 1-3, although the absolute difference with the smallest mean value (iTero was very small (0,0529°. An expected increase in distance and/or angular errors over the length of the arch due to an accumulation of registration errors of the patched 3D surfaces could be observed in this study design, but the effects were statistically not significant.For making impressions of implant cases for digital workflows, the most accurate scanner with the scanning protocol that will ensure the most accurate digital impression should be used. In our study model that was the Lava COS with the high accuracy scanning protocol.

    The quality of intraoral scanning systems is steadily improving, and they are becoming easier and more reliable to operate. This opens up possibilities for routine clinical applications. A special aspect is that overlaying (superimposing) situations recorded at different times facilitates an accurate three-dimensional difference analysis. Such difference analyses can also be used to advantage in other areas of dentistry where target/actual comparisons are required. This article presents potential indications using a newly developed software, explaining the functionality of the evaluation process and the prerequisites and limitations of 3D monitoring.

    The higher the radiation dose, the better is tumor control. High tumor doses are feasible only by interstitial irradiation. To achieve uniform dose distribution throughout the area or volume of implant, one has to use established distribution rules. In straight tube technique we have to use heavy endloading to compensate for uncrossed ends. In implants for intraoral lesions, heavy endloading gives a high dose to the opposing normal mucosa. The new gold button technique considerably reduces the dose to the normal mucosa, thus minimizing the morbidity.

    To simulate crossing of the ends in standard removable interstitial implants, we used the loop technique for intraoral tumors when treating them with afterloading interstitial removable implants. Because of technical problems, we changed to a straight tube method with heavy end-loading to compensate for the uncrossed ends. High doses to the normal mucosa close to heavy end-loading is reduced 2.5 times by the use of gold buttons in place of standard stainless steel buttons, thus decreasing unnecessary mucosal reactions and morbidity.

    Alloplastic replacement has become a valid treatment for TMJ endstage disease. The Alkayat and Bramley pre-auricular approach combined with the submandibular incision are the current surgical approaches for TMJ surgery. The present study shows a modified approach using intraoral endoscopic assistance. A female patient affected by jaw osteomielitis with condylar detachment was treated with total left TMJ alloplastic replacement combined with a right TMJ arthroplasty. No subamandibular incision was performed and, subsequently, the risks for permanent or temporary damage to the marginalis mandibulae nerve and surgical submandibular scar were avoided. Postoperative CT-Scan evidenced a good prosthesis position. No complications occurred after two years of follow-up.

    The objective of this work was to propose an automated and direct process to grade tooth wear intra-orally. Eight extracted teeth were etched with acid for different times to produce wear and scanned with an intra-oral optical scanner. Computer vision algorithms were used for alignment and comparison among models. Wear volume was estimated and visual scoring was achieved to determine reliability. Results demonstrated that it is possible to directly detect submillimeter differences in teeth surfaces with an automated method with results similar to those obtained by direct visual inspection. The investigated method proved to be reliable for comparison of measurements over time.

    OraVerse, an injectable formulation of phentolamine mesylate (PM), was recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for reversal of anesthesia of the lip and tongue and associated functional deficits resulting from an intraoral submucosal injection of a local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor. Because PM had not been approved previously for submucosal administration, 2 Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) studies in dogs designed to investigate systemic toxicity and the local effects of single and repeated dosing of OraVerse on the inferior alveolar nerve and branches of the superior alveolar nerve and adjacent soft tissues after local administration were conducted. Systemic toxicity was measured by preinjection and postinjection clinical examinations, clinical chemistry, and gross and microscopic examinations of major organs after necropsy. No evidence of systemic toxicity was detected. Local nerve and adjacent tissue damage was assessed by conventional histopathology. Nerve degeneration was evident in 1 animal. Mild perineural inflammation adjacent to the inferior alveolar nerve and inflammatory exudates were observed in submucosal tissues in several animals. No changes were observed in the nerves at injection sites of dogs from any dose group that were considered directly related to the test articles. These data reveal that single and repeated intraoral administrations of OraVerse are well tolerated in beagle dogs.

    Very weak electrical, magnetic and ultrasound signal stimulations are known to promote the formation, metabolism, restoration and stability of bone and surrounding tissues after treatment and operations. We have therefore investigated the possibility of intraoral generation of electricity and magnetism by occlusal force in an in vitro study. Biting bimorph piezoelectric elements with lead zirconate titanate (PZT) using dental models generated appropriate magnetism for bone formation, i. e. 0.5-0.6 gauss, and lower electric currents and higher voltages, i. e. 2.0-6.0 μA at 10-22 V (appropriate levels are 30 μA and 1.25 V), as observed by a universal testing machine. The electric currents and voltages could be changed using amplifier circuits. These results show that intraoral generation of electricity and magnetism is possible and could provide post-operative stabilization and activation of treated areas of bone and the surrounding tissues directly and/or indirectly by electrical, magnetic and ultrasound stimulation, which could accelerate healing.

    Full Text Available The present study investigated a subpopulation of neurons in the mouse parabrachial nucleus (PbN, a gustatory and visceral relay area in the brainstem, that project to the lateral hypothalamus (LH. We made injections of the retrograde tracer Fluorogold (FG into LH, resulting in fluorescent labeling of neurons located in different regions of the PbN. Mice were stimulated through an intraoral cannula with one of seven different taste stimuli, and PbN sections were processed for immunohistochemical detection of the immediate early gene c-Fos, which labels activated neurons. LH projection neurons were found in all PbN subnuclei, but in greater concentration in lateral subnuclei, including the dorsal lateral subnucleus (dl. Fos-like immunoreactivity (FLI was observed in the PbN in a stimulus-dependent pattern, with the greatest differentiation between intraoral stimulation with sweet (0.5 M sucrose and bitter (0.003 M quinine compounds. In particular, sweet and umami-tasting stimuli evoked robust FLI in cells in the dl, whereas quinine evoked almost no FLI in cells in this subnucleus. Double-labeled cells were also found in the greatest quantity in the dl. Overall, these results support the hypothesis that the dl contains direct a projection to the LH that is activated preferentially by appetitive compounds; this projection may be mediated by taste and/or postingestive mechanisms.

    This report describes the radiation dosage reduction possible in the general dental practice with two CCD (charge-coupled device)-based intraoral radiographic systems: the RVG-S (Trophy Radiologie, Vincennes, France) and the Sens-A-Ray (Regam Medical Systems, Sundsvall, Sweden). Radiation dosages (air-kerma; Gy) necessary for obtaining clinically acceptable images were measured at the cone tip using an ionization chamber type 660-1 (Nuclear Associates, Victoreen, Inc., Carle Place, New York, USA). When the RVG-S was used with an Oramatic 70 (Trophy Radiologie) X-ray generator, dosages at the cone tip ranged from 322 to 612 microGy. These corresponded to 40-60% of the dosages necessary when using Ektaspeed dental X-ray film (Eastman Kodak, Rochester, New York, USA) with a Heliodent 70 (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany) X-ray generator. At 60 kVp, the Sens-A-Ray reduced the dosage in the order of 30% compared with Ektaspeed dental X-ray film. Reduction in radiation dosage is one of the benefits of digital intraoral radiographic systems in general dental clinics. The RVG-S provides greater dose savings than does the Sens-A-Ray.

    One of basic principles for radiological protection is the optimization of techniques for obtain radiographic images, in way that the dose in the patient is kept as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA). Intensifying screens are used in medical radiology, which reduce considerably the dose rates in the production of radiographic images, maintaining the quality of these, while in dental radiology, there is no a intensifying screen available for intraoral examinations. From this technological requirement, this paper evaluates a computational modeling of an intensifying screen for use in intraoral radiography. For this, it was used the Monte Carlo code MCNP5 that allows the radiography simulation through the transport of electrons and photons in the different materials present in this examination. The goal of an intensifying screen is the conversion of X-ray photons to photons in the visible spectrum, knowing that radiographic films are more sensitive to light photons than to X-ray photons. So the screen should be composed of an efficient material for converting x-rays photons in light photons, therefore was made simulations using different materials, thicknesses and positions possible for placing screen in radiographic film in order to find the way more technically feasible.

  20. Pitfalls in the biopsy diagnosis of intraoral minor salivary gland neoplasms: diagnostic considerations and recommended approach.

    2014-01-01

    Among the more common types of intraoral minor salivary gland neoplasms are pleomorphic adenoma, basal cell adenoma, polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma, and adenoid cystic carcinoma. These minor salivary gland neoplasms share similar morphologic features and to a large extent immunohistochemical findings. Differentiation between these benign and malignant neoplasms is often predicated on the presence or absence of invasion. As such, in the presence of limited tissue sampling that typifies the initial testing modalities, including fine needle aspiration biopsy and/or incisional biopsy, it often is not possible to differentiate a benign from malignant minor salivary gland neoplasm. The diagnostic difficulties arise from the absence in needle or incisional biopsy of the tumor's periphery to determine whether infiltrative growth is or is not present. In this manuscript we discuss limitations and considerations associated with evaluation of incisional biopsies of intraoral minor salivary gland tumors. We offer a diagnostic approach to evaluating these biopsies, and suggest diagnostic terminology for biopsy specimens in which distinction between benignancy and malignancy is not feasible. The pathologist's approach to this distinction is critical, as treatment of benign neoplasms is generally conservative, whereas malignant lesions may warrant more aggressive management.

    Full Text Available Existe un interés creciente por la realización de los bloqueos de nervio periférico (BNP debido a sus potenciales beneficios como los concernientes a las interacciones de los fármacos anticoagulantes y los bloqueos neuroaxiales. Los BNP de la extremidad inferior, y sobre todo, los bloqueos periféricos del nervio ciático son el pariente pobre de las técnicas de anestesia regional y, en general, son poco conocidos y por tanto poco utilizados. En este artículo se realiza una revisión de los bloqueos del plexo lumbosacro, realizando especial énfasis en los bloqueos continuos mediante catéteres para analgesia postoperatoria y para el tratamiento del dolor crónico. La utilización de anestésicos locales de larga duración de acción, asociada a un escaso bloqueo motor, como es el caso de la ropivacaína, nos permite combinar técnicas de punción única para conseguir una adecuada analgesia intraoperatoria, con las técnicas de perfusión continua para analgesia postoperatoria. Es necesario un conocimiento anatómico preciso, así como de los territorios cutáneos de inervación de las ramas del plexo lumbosacro, para la realización de estas técnicas de bloqueo. La introducción de diferentes técnicas de imagen, fundamentalmente la ultrasonografía, para la localización de las estructuras nerviosas, facilita la realización de estos bloqueos y disminuye el riesgo de lesiones de los órganos adyacentes. La realización de los bloqueos continuos de nervio periférico ofrece el beneficio de una analgesia postoperatoria prolongada, con menores efectos adversos, mayor grado de satisfacción del paciente, y una recuperación funcional más rápida después de la cirugía.There is increasing interest in peripheral nerve blocks (PNB because of potential benefits relative to interactions of anticoagulants and central neuraxial techniques.

    ABSTRACT Objective This study aimed to evaluate apoptosis by assessing cleaved caspase-3 immunoexpression in hyperplastic, potentially malignant disorder (PMD), and malignant tumors in intraoral and lower lip sites. Material and Methods A retrospective study using paraffin blocks with tissues from patients with inflammatory fibrous hyperplasia (IFH), actinic cheilitis, oral leukoplakia, lower lip and intraoral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) was performed. The tissues were evaluated by immunohistochemical analysis with anti-cleaved caspase-3 antibody. Apoptotic area index was then correlated with lesion type. Results From 120 lesions assessed, 55 (46%) were cleaved caspase-3-positive. The SCC samples (n=40) had the highest apoptotic area indices (n=35; 87.5%). Significant differences were detected between SCCs and PMDs (p=0.0003), as well as SCCs and IFHs (p=0.001), regarding caspase-3 immunopositivity. Carcinomas of the lower lip had lower apoptotic area indices than intraoral cancer (p=0.0015). Conclusions Cleaved caspase-3 immunoexpression showed differences in oral SCCs and PMDs and demonstrated a distinct role of apoptosis in carcinogenesis of intraoral and lower lip cancer. In future, the expression of cleaved caspase-3 with other target molecules in oral cancer may be helpful in delineating the prognosis and treatment of these tumors. PMID:27556207

    On 238 intra-oral roentgenograms there were assessed curious process, shape, size extent and depth of defects as well as the possibility of complications in teeth which were not treated. There were assessed 277 defects, out of which 194 in upper teeth and 83 in lower ones. In all the teeth of the maxilla and of the mandible there was found the greatest number of amorphous defects and semilunar contact surfaces. There were also observed a lot of defects in radiciform cementum, thus, often under the gingivae. These are sites difficult for access for clinical examination. That is why radiologic examination is often conclusive in localizing curious process and in accurate diagnosing in the case of pulpits going on. (author). 4 refs, 1 fig., 3 tabs.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Neurofibromatosis-1 (NF-1 is a relatively common autosomal dominant disease characterized by multiple cutaneous fibromatoses and café au lait spots. It is associated with the mutation of NF-1 gene, a tumor suppressor gene located on chromosome 17q11.2. Hence, it can be considered as a familial cancer predisposition syndrome in which the affected individuals are at increased risk of developing malignancies. Intraoral neurofibromas associated with NF-1 are quite common, but the occurrence of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST in the oral cavity is very rare. Oral MPNST can occur either de novo or by malignant transformation of neurofibromas or very rarely can represent a metastatic lesion. Here, we present a case of MPNST involving the maxillary region, in a patient with NF-1. Since MPNST often creates a diagnostic dilemma, histopathologic criteria for the diagnosis of MPNST are also discussed.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available The achievement of passive fit is an important prerequisite for the prevention of complications in full-arch screw-retained implant prosthesis. With cemented prosthesis, the cementation compensates for the discrepancies in the cast framework, but the lack of retrievability seems undesirable. The aim of this paper is to propose a modified screw-retained prosthesis design for complete arch implant fixed rehabilitation. A technique for the fabrication of a full-arch metal-resin implant-supported screw-retained prosthesis is described. Cementation of the framework to the abutments intraorally improves the passivity of fit of the prosthesis on the implants. Maintenance of screw-access channels in the final prosthesis ensures retrievability. The metal-resin design allows for easy repair and maintenance. The prosthesis is cost-effective compared to conventional options and can be employed as a viable treatment alternative when considering metal-acrylic resin complete arch fixed prosthesis.

    Fan Zhang

    Full Text Available Dental measurements have been commonly taken from plaster dental models obtained from alginate impressions can. Through the use of an intraoral scanner, digital impressions now acquire the information directly from the mouth. The purpose of this study was to determine the validity of the intraoral scans compared to plaster models.Two types of dental models (intraoral scan and plaster model of 20 subjects were included in this study. The subjects had impressions taken of their teeth and made as plaster model. In addition, their mouths were scanned with the intraoral scanner and the scans were converted into digital models. Eight transverse and 16 anteroposterior measurements, 24 tooth heights and widths were recorded on the plaster models with a digital caliper and on the intraoral scan with 3D reverse engineering software. For 3D surface analysis, the two models were superimposed by using best-fit algorithm. The average differences between the two models at all points on the surfaces were computed. Paired t-test and Bland-Altman plot were used to determine the validity of measurements from the intraoral scan compared to those from the plaster model.There were no significant differences between the plaster models and intraoral scans, except for one measurement of lower intermolar width. The Bland-Altman plots of all measurements showed that differences between the two models were within the limits of agreement. The average surface difference between the two models was within 0.10 mm.The results of the present study indicate that the intraoral scans are clinically acceptable for diagnosis and treatment planning in dentistry and can be used in place of plaster models.

    1989-12-01

    This investigation determined the sensitometric properties of 27 rare-earth screen-film combinations and compared them to E- and D-speed films and xeroradiography, the current standards for intraoral radiography. A series of exposures from base plus fog to film saturation were made to determine the Hurter and Driffield curve of each image receptor. The base plus fog, film saturation, speed, gamma, average gradient, and resolution were determined. When dental receptors and screen-film systems are compared on the basis of radiographic quality (contrast and resolution), many screen-film systems have similar resolution (greater than 10 line pairs/mm), significantly greater contrast (greater than 2.0), and a substantial speed advantage (greater than 10). Thus selected screen-film systems may be an alternative to conventional dental receptors for intraoral radiography.

    2016-01-01

    PURPOSE The trueness and precision of acquired images of intraoral digital scanners could be influenced by restoration type, preparation outline form, scanning technology and the application of power. The aim of this study is to perform the comparative evaluation of the 3-dimensional reproducibility of intraoral scanners (IOSs). MATERIALS AND METHODS The phantom containing five prepared teeth was scanned by the reference scanner (Dental Wings) and 5 test IOSs (E4D dentist, Fastscan, iTero, Trios and Zfx Intrascan). The acquired images of the scanner groups were compared with the image from the reference scanner (trueness) and within each scanner groups (precision). Statistical analysis was performed using independent two-samples t-test and analysis of variance (α=.05). RESULTS The average deviations of trueness and precision of Fastscan, iTero and Trios were significantly lower than the other scanners. According to the restoration type, significantly higher trueness was observed in crown and inlay than in bridge. However, no significant difference was observed among four sites of preparation outline form. If compared by the characteristics of IOS, high trueness was observed in the group adopting the active triangulation and using powder. However, there was no significant difference between the still image acquisition and video acquisition groups. CONCLUSION Except for two intraoral scanners, Fastscan, iTero and Trios displayed comparable levels of trueness and precision values in tested phantom model. Difference in trueness was observed depending on the restoration type, the preparation outline form and characteristics of IOS, which should be taken into consideration when the intraoral scanning data are utilized.

    This study compared the gray value differences to dentin of titanium and FRC root posts in anterior and posterior teeth radiographed with digital intraoral systems and conventional x-ray film. Radiographic images (n=5) of titanium or fiber-reinforced composite (FRC) root posts placed in extracted teeth were taken with six digital intraoral radiographic devices and conventional x-ray film (control group). Gray value differences were evaluated between the root posts and root dentin. Statistical analyses of the results were performed with three-way and one-way ANOVA with Bonferroni-Dunn's multiple comparisons post-hoc analyses (α=0.05). Significantly higher gray value differences of titanium and FRC posts were found in anterior teeth but not in molars for XIOS, Sidexis and Visualix digital intraoral systems, but not for RVG, DenOptix and VistaScan (FRC posts). Except for DenOptix with incisors and molars and VistaScan with molars, conventional x-ray films showed significantly lower gray value differences of titanium posts in incisors and molars compared to the corresponding digital radiographs.

    Nasomaxillary depression, which may be seen with major saddle nose deformities, especially as a sequel to childhood nasal trauma, generally is overlooked during management of the saddle nose. To handle both the saddle nose deformity and nasomaxillary depression, the authors used a one-stage intraoral and external open rhinoplasty approach for 12 patients. Lateral nasal osteotomies and correction of midface retrusion with crescent-shaped autogenous rib cartilage grafts were performed through two bilateral intraoral gingivobuccal incisions. The external open rhinoplasty approach was used for the correction of the saddle nose deformities. The mean follow-up period after the surgery was 2 years (range, 1-3.5 years). The correction of nasal tip depression resulting from midface retrusion was evaluated by lateral cephalometric radiographs. The mean movement of the nasal tip anteriorly in the sagittal plane 1 year after the operation was 5.5 mm (range, 4-7 mm). The functional and aesthetic results were satisfactory for all the patients. As the findings show, the intraoral part of the approach provides a route for the placement of cartilage grafts to correct the depressed nasal tip, augment the paranasal area, and provide support to the lateral alar bases and the controlled low-to-low lateral osteotomies. The external part of the approach provides correction of the saddle nose deformity.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background In the present study, we examined clinical and laser-evoked potentials (LEP features in two groups of chronic tension-type headache (CTTH patients treated with two different approaches: intra-oral appliance of prosthesis, aiming to reduce muscular tenderness, and 10 mg daily amitriptyline. Methods Eighteen patients with diagnosed CTTH participated in this open label, controlled study. A baseline evaluation was performed for clinical features, Total Tenderness Score (TTS and a topographic analysis of LEPs obtained manually and the pericranial points stimulation in all patients vs. healthy subjects. Thereafter, patients were randomly assigned to a two-month treatment by either amitriptyline or intra-oral appliance. Results and discussion Both the intra-oral appliance and amitriptyline significantly reduced headache frequency. The TTS was significantly reduced in the group treated with the appliance. The amplitude of P2 response elicited by stimulation of pericranial zones showed a reduction after amitriptyline treatment. Both therapies were effective in reducing headache severity, the appliance with a prevalent action on the pericranial muscular tenderness, amitriptyline reducing the activity of the central cortical structures subtending pain elaboration Conclusion The results of this study may suggest that in CTTH both the interventions at the peripheral and central levels improve the outcome of headache.

    Summary: Craniomaxillofacial reconstruction using virtual surgical planning, computer-aided manufacturing, and new microsurgical techniques optimizes patient-specific and defect-directed reconstruction. A 3D customized free deep circumflex iliac artery (DCIA) flap with intraoral anastomoses was performed on a 23-year-old man with a posttraumatic right zygomatico-maxillary defect with failure of alloplastic implant reconstruction. An osseous iliac crest flap was sculpted based on a customized 3D model of the mirror image of the patient’s unaffected side to allow for perfect fit to the zygomatico-maxillary defect. An intraoral dissection of the facial artery and vein was performed within the right cheek mucosa and allowed for end-to-end microvascular anastomoses. 3D preoperative planning and customized free DCIA osseous flap combined with an intraoral microsurgical technique provided restoration of facial esthetics and function without visible scars. In cases where zygomatico-malar reconstruction by alloplastic material fails, a customized free DCIA osseous flap can be designed by virtual surgical planning to restore facial appearance and function.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se describen desde una perspectiva comparativa los fenómenos de bloqueo, ensombrecimiento e inhibición latente, enfatizando su presencia en tareas de aprendizaje espacial. Estos fenómenos de aprendizaje, ampliamente observados en otras clases de vertebrados e invertebrados, han sido recientemente descriptos por primera vez en anfibios, un grupo de vertebrados con un cerebro filogenéticamente antiguo. Tomando como modelo al sapo terrestre Rhinella arenarum, se revisarán los tres fenómenos de aprendizaje asociativo mencionados en una situación de aprendizaje espacial: (1 bloqueo entre claves visuales asociadas a una meta, (2 ensombrecimiento de una clave visual lejana por la presencia de una clave cercana y (3 inhibición latente debida a la pre-exposición a una cla ve visual. Todos los entrenamientos se llevaron a cabo en una arena circular de color blanco, utilizando agua como recompensa. Dentro de la arena, se distribuyeron cuatro piletas de acrílico en forma de cruz contra las paredes laterales (sólo una tenía acceso a la recompensa. En las paredes interiores de la arena circular se colocaron varias señales visuales para guiar a los animales. Los resultados obtenidos en sapos indican que estos fenómenos, observados previamente en aves y mamíferos, también se encuentran en este grupo (uti lizando un paradigma de aprendizaje espacial con claves visuales cercanas y lejanas. Este primer registro en anfibios sugiere que los mecanismos biológicos de estos fenómenos de aprendizaje han surgido muy tempranamente en el curso de la evolución de los vertebrados totalmente terrestres y que los mismos han sido fuertemente conservados. El análisis comparado de estos hallazgos contribuirá a mejorar el entendimiento de los mecanismos biológicos que subyacen al aprendizaje espacial, en busca de patrones funcionales comunes con otras clases de vertebrados y potencialmente presentes en un ancestro común.

    Background Lipomas are benign mesenchymal tumors composed of mature adipocytes. They are classified according to their histological pattern and their etiology remains unclear. Objectives: To present two cases and review the literature. Material and Methods A search was conducted in the Medline / PubMed and Scielo data bases of the last 10 years (2004-2014) with the keywords “ intraoral lipoma OR oral cavity lipoma”. Results 46 articles with 95 cases (56 women and 39 men) were reviewed. The average age was found to be 52.28 years (52.28 ± 18.55); and most of them occurred between the 4th and 6th decade of life. Lipomas occur mostly in the buccal mucosa (n = 36, 37.9%), followed by the tongue (n = 23, 24.2%) and other locations (n = 36, 37.9%). The most common histologic pattern was simple lipomas (n = 40, 42%), followed by fibrolipomas (n = 18, 18.9%) and other types (n = 37, 39.1%). The average tumor size was 19.77 ± 16.26mm. Conclusions Lipomas are a relatively rare finding in the oral cavity. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice and recurrence is not expected. Key words:Benign oral tumor, oral lipoma, lipoma, oral cavity. PMID:27957277

    Full Text Available Statement of Problem: A few decades have past from using radiographic technology as an accurate paraclinical method and always protective measurements is applicated against ionizing radiation. As dentalradiography is a routine procedure in dentistry the importance of protective strategies is clear.Propose: The aim of this descriptive study is to evaluate the protection principles in centers which haveintraoral radiographic devices in Yazd.Material and Methods: We have considered all three aspects of practitioner, environment and patientprotection using questionnaire and visiting those centers.Results: 33/7% of dental offices ,10 clinics ,3 institution and faculty of dentistry had intraoral radiographicequipments. Stablishment of protection principles for radiographer was favorable. 7.7% of centers had x-ray room with leaded walls, 23.1% had curtain , in 69/2% of centers radiographers stood in correct position anddistance while taking radiograph. Regarding to protection of environment, beams leakage control in 23.1% dental offices, 70% of clinics, all institution and faculty of dentistry have done.Conclusion: Non of the centers used rectangular localizator, thyroid shield, film holder and just some centers used leaded apron in specific circumstances. We have concluded that patient protection constitute less consideration. Generally lack of protective consideration is related to deficient knowledge of operators. Lackof information about protection equipments causes decrease of demanding of these tools and ultimately lack of these equipments in the market.

    A digital intra-oral X-ray imaging sensor with an active area of 3.6x2.9 cm sup 2 and consisting of six charge-integrating CMOS signal readout circuits bump bonded to one high-resistivity silicon pixel detector has been developed and tested. The pixel size is 35 mu m. The X-rays entering the sensor window are converted directly to electrical charge in the depleted detector material yielding minimum lateral signal spread and maximum image sharpness. The signal charge is collected on the gates of the input field effect transistors of the CMOS signal readout circuits. The analog signal readout is performed by multiplexing in the current mode independent of the signal charge collection enabling multiple readout cycles with negligible dead time and thus imaging with wide dynamic range. Since no intermediate conversion material of X-rays to visible light is needed, the sensor structure is very compact. The analog image signals are guided from the sensor output through a thin cable to signal processing, AD conversio...

    Color matching in the anterior superior incisor region (ASIR) is very difficult when using a rubber dam during restorative procedures. This study measured temperature/relative humidity parameters in the ASIR and evaluated the influence of the inhalation/downtime/exhalation mouth-breathing cycle on microleakage in composite resin restorations performed in the region, using three different adhesive systems. Sixty bovine incisors were randomly assigned to six groups (n=10) according to environmental conditions (laboratory environment or intraoral conditions) and the three adhesive systems being tested (Prime & Bond NT (PB), Single Bond (SB) and Clearfil SE Bond (CL)). The composite resin restored specimens were thermocycled (800 cycles, 5-55 degrees C), immersed in a 2% methylene blue-buffered solution and sectioned longitudinally The dye penetration on the margin of the restoration was evaluated and non-parametric statistical analyses were performed. The temperature and humidity parameters in the ASIR showed significant differences when compared to the laboratory environment. Restorations performed in the ASIR environment showed no increases in microleakage. As it was shown that temperature/humidity in ASIR do not affect marginal sealing in direct composite resin restorations negatively, better color matching can be safely achieved without the use of a rubber dam.

Eighty patients with mandibular prognathism underwent surgical mandibular setback with intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO. The correlation between the blood loss volume and postoperative VAS with the gender, age, and operating time was assessed using the t-test and Spearman rank correlation coefficient. The correlation between the magnitude of mandibular setback with the presence of TMJ clicking symptoms and lip sensation was also assessed. Results. The mean operating time and blood loss volume for men and women were 249.52 min and 229.39 min, and 104.03 mL and 86.12 mL, respectively. The mean VAS in men and women was 3.21 and 2.93, and 1.79 and 1.32 on the first and second postoperative days. There is no gender difference in the operating time, blood loss, VAS, TMJ symptoms, and lip numbness. The magnitude of mandibular setback was not correlated with immediate and long-term postoperative lip numbness. Conclusion. There are no gender differences in the intraoperative hemorrhage and postoperative sequelae (pain, lip numbness, and TMJ symptoms. In addition, neither symptom was significantly correlated with the amount of mandibular setback.

    This study evaluated the use of a fixed orthodontic appliance in treatment of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) compared to the use of an intra-oral splint. Fifty (50) adult patients, with confirmed anterior disk displacement with reduction in at least one temporomandibular joint (TMJ), were divided into three groups: 20 patients treated with AR splint (Group I); 20 patients treated with a fixed orthodontic appliance (Group II) and 10 patients who underwent no treatment (Control Group). Joint pain, joint noise, muscle pain, and subjective relief were evaluated monthly before the treatment began (T0) and for six months thereafter. Subjects in Group I and Group II displayed a significant decrease in joint pain (p orthodontic appliance seems to be as efficacious as the use of an AR maxillary splint in the treatment of joint pain and muscle pain, but not in the treatment of joint noise. These results are valid, at least for the short-term clinical results (first six months of treatment). Clinical implications for long-term use are not clarified by these results.

    In the world of diagnostic imaging, radiography is an important supplementary method for dental diagnosis. In radiology, special attention must be paid to the radiological protection of patients and health professionals, and also to image quality for correct diagnosis. In Brazil, the national rules governing the operation of medical and dental radiology were specified in 1998 by the National Sanitary Surveillance Agency, complemented in 2005 by the guide 'Medical radiology: security and performance of equipment.' In this study, quality control tests were performed in public clinics with dental X-ray equipment in the State of Sergipe, Brazil, with consideration of the physical parameters that influence radiological protection and also the quality of images taken in intra-oral radiography. The accuracy of the exposure time was considered acceptable for equipment with digital timers. Exposure times and focal-spot size variations can lead to increased entrance dose. Increased dose has also been associated with visual processing of radiographic film, which often requires repeating the radiographic examination.

    A miniature X-ray tube based on a carbon-nanotube electron emitter has been employed for the application to a dental radiography. The miniature X-ray tube has an outer diameter of 7 mm and a length of 47 mm. The miniature X-ray tube is operated in a negative high-voltage mode in which the X-ray target is electrically grounded. In addition, X-rays are generated only to the teeth directions using a collimator while X-rays generated to other directions are shielded. Hence, the X-ray tube can be safely inserted into a human mouth. Using the intra-oral X-ray tube, a dental radiography is demonstrated where the positions of an X-ray source and a sensor are reversed compared with a conventional dental radiography system. X-ray images of five neighboring teeth are obtained and, furthermore, both left and right molar images are achieved by a single X-ray shot of the miniature X-ray tube.

    Full Text Available In dentistry, pure gutta-percha (trans-1,4-polyisoprene (TPI is widely used as a main component of root canal filling materials. TPI has an interesting shape memory formed through cross-linking, and this characteristic is expected to be very effective for development of novel dental treatments; in particular, modification of the shape recovery temperature to the intraoral temperature (37 °C will enhance the applicability of the shape-memory effect of TPI in root canal filling. In this study, trial test specimens consisting of varying proportions of TPI, cis-polyisoprene, zinc oxide, stearic acid, sulfur and dicumyl peroxide were prepared and the temperature dependence of their shape recovery, recovery stress and relaxation modulus were measured. Additionally, their sealing abilities were tested using glass tubing and a bovine incisor. As the ratio of cross-linking agent in the specimens increased, a decrease in recovery temperature and an increase in recovery stress and recovery speed were observed. In addition, the test specimen containing the highest concentration of cross-linking agent showed superior sealing ability under a thermal stimulus of 37 °C in both sealing ability tests.

    Cinnamaldehyde and nicotine activate the transient receptor potential subtype A1 (TRPA1) channel, which may cause burning sensations. This study investigated whether cinnamaldehyde modulates nicotine-induced psychophysical and physiological responses in oral tissues. Healthy non-smokers (n = 22) received, in a randomized, double-blind, crossover design, three different gums containing 4 mg of nicotine, 20 mg of cinnamaldehyde, or a combination thereof. Assessments of orofacial temperature and blood flow, blood pressure, heart rate, taste experience, and intra-oral pain/irritation area and intensity were performed before, during, and after a 10-min chewing regime. Cinnamaldehyde increased the temperature of the tongue and blood flow of the lip, and was associated with pain/irritation, especially in the mouth. Nicotine increased the temperature of the tongue and blood flow of the cheek, and produced pain/irritation in the mouth and throat. The combination of cinnamaldehyde and nicotine did not overtly change the psychophysical or physiological responses. Interestingly, half of the subjects responded to cinnamaldehyde as an irritant, and these cinnamaldehyde responders reported greater nicotine-induced pain/irritation areas in the throat. Whether sensitivity to cinnamaldehyde can predict the response to nicotine-induced oral irritation remains to be determined. A better understanding of the sensory properties of nicotine in the oral mucosa has important therapeutic implications because pain and irritation represent compliance issues for nicotine replacement products.

    Tongue drive system (TDS) is a tongue-operated, minimally invasive, unobtrusive, and wireless assistive technology (AT) that infers users' intentions by detecting their voluntary tongue motion and translating them into user-defined commands. Here we present the new intraoral version of the TDS (iTDS), which has been implemented in the form of a dental retainer. The iTDS system-on-a-chip (SoC) features a configurable analog front-end (AFE) that reads the magnetic field variations inside the mouth from four 3-axial magnetoresistive sensors located at four corners of the iTDS printed circuit board (PCB). A dual-band transmitter (Tx) on the same chip operates at 27 and 432 MHz in the Industrial/Scientific/Medical (ISM) band to allow users to switch in the presence of external interference. The Tx streams the digitized samples to a custom-designed TDS universal interface, built from commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components, which delivers the iTDS data to other devices such as smartphones, personal computers (PC), and powered wheelchairs (PWC). Another key block on the iTDS SoC is the power management integrated circuit (PMIC), which provides individually regulated and duty-cycled 1.8 V supplies for sensors, AFE, Tx, and digital control blocks. The PMIC also charges a 50 mAh Li-ion battery with constant current up to 4.2 V, and recovers data and clock to update its configuration register through a 13.56 MHz inductive link. The iTDS SoC has been implemented in a 0.5-μm standard CMOS process and consumes 3.7 mW on average.

    Full Text Available Background: Identification of a dead person is important in starting the investigation into the circumstances of death. In the absence of forensic odontologist, it is vital that general dentists are able to compare the ante mortem-post mortem (AM-PM records and with their ability, correctly interpret the individuality of the person. Aims: This study wascarried out to find out the accuracy with which undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate dentists can do this comparison, using the simulated AM-PM intra-oral peri-apical (IOPA view radiographs. Setting and Design: A total of 60 investigators of which 20 undergraduate students, 20 general dentists, 20 post-graduate dentists viewed 10 pairs of simulated AM and PM radiographs and recorded their findings. Materials and Methods: Ten pairs of simulated AM-PM IOPA view radiographs were given to 60 dentists to investigate their discriminatory potential for dental identification purposes. The results were statistically analyzed. Statistical Analysis: χ2 -test and Mann-Whitney U-test were carried out to compare the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of the three types of examiners (UG, G, PG. Results: The results showed sensitivity of 59.8%, specificity of 62.6%, accuracy of 61% for undergraduate students, sensitivity of 86.6%, specificity of 87.5%, accuracy of 87% for graduate doctors, sensitivity of 89.3%, specificity of 92.3% and accuracy of 90.5% for post-graduate doctors respectively. Conclusion: Inexperienced investigators in forensic identification showed fairly acceptable results, therefore, introduction of forensic odontology in an undergraduate course may help general dentists to provide better service, if required, in the absence of a forensic odontologist.

    Full Text Available Background and Aims: According to concerns of technical errors in intraoral radiographs and reports of positive effects of central ray laser pointer on the students, technical errors and shortcomings of earlier research, this study was conducted at Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology of Tehran Azad University to determine the role and use of laser pointer in the technical error made by students. Materials and Methods: This clinical trials study was carried out at the Department of Radiology, Dental School of Azad Tehran University. A total of eighty students were divided into two groups of forty. In the first group the periapical technique was taught without laser guided indicator, while in the second group laser guided indicator was applied in training the students. All students took X-rays from the phantoms. Laser guided indicator is made of one low power red laser diodes.Totally 560 X-rays were taken and the technical errors and the quality of X-rays were evaluated. Data were analyzed statistically using Mann-Whitney and Chi Square tests (&alpha=0.05. Results: The X-rays taken by students showed significant differences in cone cutting (P<0.001, and overlapping (P<0.001 between the two study groups. In the subjective review of X-ray quality, the difference was also significant (P=0.03. Conclusion: The use of laser guided indicator as a training aid seems to be practical for easier learning of central ray adjustment and reduction of technical errors in taking X-rays by dental students.

    The aims of the present study are to determine the optimum compression rate in terms of file size reduction and diagnostic quality of the images after compression and evaluate the transmission speed of original or each compressed images. The material consisted of 24 extracted human premolars and molars. The occlusal surfaces and proximal surfaces of the teeth had a clinical disease spectrum that ranged from sound to varying degrees of fissure discoloration and cavitation. The images from Digora system were exported in TIFF and the images from conventional intraoral film were scanned and digitalized in TIFF by Nikon SF-200 scanner(Nikon, Japan). And six compression factors were chosen and applied on the basis of the results from a pilot study. The total number of images to be assessed were 336. Three radiologists assessed the occlusal and proximal surfaces of the teeth with 5-rank scale. Finally diagnosed as either sound or carious lesion by one expert oral pathologist. And sensitivity and specificity and kappa value for diagnostic agreement was calculated. Also the area (Az) values under the ROC curve were calculated and paired t-test and oneway ANOVA test was performed. Thereafter, transmission time of the image files of the each compression level were compared with that of the original image files. No significant difference was found between original and the corresponding images up to 7% (1:14) compression ratio for both the occlusal and proximal caries (p<0.05). JPEG3 (1:14) image files are transmitted fast more than 10 times, maintained diagnostic information in image, compared with original image files. 1:14 compressed image file may be used instead of the original image and reduce storage needs and transmission time.

    Filters of rare-earth elements such as lanthanum (La, Z=57), samarium (Sm, Z=62), gadolinium (Gd, Z=64) and erbium (Er, Z=68) are frequently used in radiography for the purpose of reducing the patient dose by eliminating low-energy and high-energy X-rays which are not involved in imaging. It is useful to evaluate the dose reduction achieved by these rare-earth filters in terms of organ dose, and the effective dose equivalent, which is used for evaluating carcinogenic risks and hereditary effects of X-ray irradiation, for the purpose of optimizing the radiographic technique and radiation protection. Therefore, we calculated the organ dose and effective dose equivalent during intraoral radiography of the maxillary incisor region by simulation using samarium or erbium, typical rare-earth elements, in filtration. We evaluated the effects of these metals in dose reduction. When samarium or erbium, 0.1 mm thick, was used in added filtration at tube voltage of 60, 70, 80 and 90 kV, the time required for radiography almost doubled, respectively. The organ dose at each tube voltage was the largest in the parathyroid and thyroid glands, followed by bone surfaces and the optic lenses, skin, red bone marrow and salivary glands, larynx, and brain, in that order. The organ dose at sites other than the larynx and brain decreased as the quality of the incident X-ray beam was hardened. When samarium or erbium was added at each voltage, the effective dose equivalent was reduced by about 20% to 45%. Erbium was more effective than samarium in reducing the effective dose equivalent, and either of the two elements decreased its effectiveness with an increase in tube voltage. (author) 43 refs.

    The Nd:YAG laser has been used since 1970 in dental laboratories to weld metals on dental prostheses. Recently in several clinical cases, we have suggested that the Nd:YAG laser device commonly utilized in the dental office could be used to repair broken fixed, removable and orthodontic prostheses and to weld metals directly in the mouth. The aim of this work was to evaluate, using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), the quality of the weld and its mechanical strength, comparing a device normally used in dental laboratory and a device normally used in the dental office for oral surgery, the same as that described for intraoral welding. Metal plates of a Co-Cr-Mo dental alloy and steel orthodontic wires were subjected to four welding procedures: welding without filler metal using the laboratory laser, welding with filler metal using the laboratory laser, welding without filler metal using the office laser, and welding with filler metal using the office laser. The welded materials were then analysed by SEM, EDS and DMA. SEM analysis did not show significant differences between the samples although the plates welded using the office laser without filler metal showed a greater number of fissures than the other samples. EDS microanalysis of the welding zone showed a homogeneous composition of the metals. Mechanical tests showed similar elastic behaviours of the samples, with minimal differences between the samples welded with the two devices. No wire broke even under the maximum force applied by the analyser. This study seems to demonstrate that the welds produced using the office Nd:YAG laser device and the laboratory Nd:YAG laser device, as analysed by SEM, EDS and DMA, showed minimal and nonsignificant differences, although these findings need to be confirmed using a greater number of samples.

    Full Text Available This report describes a clinical case with an atypical intraoral sinus tract formation from diagnosis and treatment to short-term outcome and definitive prosthetic rehabilitation. In detail, the patient underwent conservative nonsurgical root canal treatment followed by guided bone augmentation of the regions involved in periapical inflammation and sinus tract formation. The removal of the inflammatory source of the lesion as well as the affected tissue clearly led to a healing of the surrounding bone tissues. Subsequently, the tooth was reconstructed using a fibreglass post and a metal-ceramic crown; an implant was successfully placed in the previously inflamed bone region.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background This was a method comparison study. The aim of study was to compare caries information obtained from a full mouth visual examination using the method developed by the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry (BASCD for epidemiological surveys with caries data obtained from eight, six and four intra-oral digital photographs of index teeth in two groups of children aged 5 years and 10/11 years. Methods Five trained and calibrated examiners visually examined the whole mouth of 240 5-year-olds and 250 10-/11-year-olds using the BASCD method. The children also had intra-oral digital photographs taken of index teeth. The same 5 examiners assessed the intra-oral digital photographs (in groups of 8, 6 and 4 intra-oral photographs for caries using the BASCD criteria; dmft/DMFT were used to compute Weighted Kappa Statistic as a measure of intra-examiner reliability and intra-class correlation coefficients as a measure of inter-examiner reliability for each method. A method comparison analysis was performed to determine the 95% limits of agreement for all five examiners, comparing the visual examination method with the photographic assessment method using 8, 6 and 4 intra-oral photographs. Results The intra-rater reliability for the visual examinations ranged from 0.81 to 0.94 in the 5-year-olds and 0.90 to 0.97 in the 10-/11-year-olds. Those for the photographic assessments in the 5-year-olds were for 8 intra-oral photographs, 0.86 to 0.94, for 6 intra-oral photographs, 0.85 to 0.98 and for 4 intra-oral photographs, 0.80 to 0.96; for the 10-/11-year-olds were for 8 intra-oral photographs 0.84 to 1.00, for 6 intra-oral photographs 0.82 to 1.00 and for 4 intra-oral photographs 0.72 to 0.98. The 95% limits of agreement were −1.997 to 1.967, -2.375 to 2.735 and −2.250 to 2.921 respectively for the 5-year-olds and −2.614 to 2.027, -2.179 to 3.887 and −2.594 to 2.163 respectively for the 10-/11-year

    Large complex odontomas of the jaws are rare. A report of a large complex odontoma of the mandibular angle-ramus region enucleated through intra-oral buccal approach is presented. A review of the literature on different modalities of treatment is also undertaken. A large expansile complex odontoma of the angle-ramus region of the mandible was excised through an intraoral buccal approach under general anaesthesia. Recovery and immediate post-operative period were uneventful. There was no altered sensation in the distribution of the inferior alveolar nerve and lingual nerve; and wound healing was satisfactory. Post-operative radiograph 2 years after the operation showed satisfactory bone regeneration. Intraoral buccal approach to large complex odontomas of the angle-ramus region of the mandible is a relatively safe procedure with minimal complication.

    The functional integrity of the floor of the mouth (FOM) is essential in maintaining tongue mobility, deglutition, and control and disposal of saliva. The present study focused on reporting oral function using functional intraoral Glasgow scale (FIGS) in patients who had surgical ablation and reconstruction of FOM carcinoma with or without chemo-radiotherapy. The study included patients who had surgical treatment of floor of mouth cancer in two regional head and neck units in Glasgow, UK between January 2006 and August 2007. Patients were assessed using FIGS before surgery, 2 months, 6 months and 1 year after surgery. It is a five-point scale self-questionnaire to allow patients to self-assess speech, chewing and swallowing. The maximum total score is 15 points. The influence of socio-demographic parameters, tumour characteristics and surgical parameters was addressed in the study. A total of 62 consecutive patients were included in the study; 41 (66.1 %) were males and 21 (33.9 %) were females. The patients' mean age at the time of diagnosis was 60.6 years. Fifty (80.6 %) patients had unilateral origin of FOM tumours and 10 (19.4 %) had bilateral origin. Peroral approach was the most common approach used in 35 (56.4 %) patients. The mean preoperative FIGS score was 14. Two months after surgery, it droped to 9.4 then started to increase gradually thereafter and recorded 10.1 at 6 months and 11 at 1 year. Unilateral FOM resection recorded better score than bilateral and lateral FOM tumours than anterior at 1 year postoperatively. Furthermore, direct closure showed better functional outcome than loco-regional and free flaps. The FIGS is a simple and comprehensive way of assessing a patient's functional impairment following surgery in the FOM. Tumour site and size, surgical access, surgical resection and method of reconstruction showed significant influence on oral function following surgical resection. A well-designed rehabilitation programme is required to improve

    Full Text Available Objectives. In general surgery the incidence of postoperative wound infections is reported to be lower using triclosan-coated sutures. In intraoral surgery, sutures are faced with different bacterial species and the question arises whether the antibacterial-coated suture material has the same positive effects. Materials and Methods. Triclosan-coated and uncoated suture materials were applied in 17 patients undergoing wisdom tooth extraction. Postoperatively, sutures were removed and adherent bacteria were isolated, colony-forming units (cfu were counted, and species identified. Results. Oral bacteria were found in high numbers (cfu>10[sup]7[/sup] on both Vicryl and the triclosan-coated Vicryl Plus. The total number of bacteria isolated from Vicryl Plus was 37% higher than for Vicryl, mainly due to increased numbers of anaerobes. The number of bacterial strains identified was higher for Vicryl ( n=203 than for Vicryl Plus (n=198, but the number of pathogens was higher on Vicryl Plus (n=100 than on Vicryl (n=97. Fewer Gram-positive strains were found on Vicryl Plus (n=95 than on Vicryl (n=107 and, conversely, more Gram-negative strains on Vicryl Plus (103vs.96. Conclusions. In terms of the total number of oral bacteria, and especially oral pathogens, that adhered to suture material, no reduction was demonstrated for Vicryl Plus. The use of triclosan-coated suture material offers no advantage in intraoral surgery.

    The need for high quality standards for radiographic images in order to make a diagnosis assertive, and being the additional filtration required in the intraoral X-ray equipment show the need of evaluating these filters. This study aims to examine the influence of the elemental composition of the filters of X-ray of dental intraoral equipment in the radiographic images quality. The filters analysis were performed by using the energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence method (EDXRF). Ten conventional filters were analysed. In this study, 33 radiographic exposures were performed using films: twenty radiographs in the incisor region and ten in the molar region, three exposures were also made in the same regions with same conditions without using filter. After radiographs development, optical density was measure and all radiographs were submitted to subjective evaluation by dental radiologists. Data obtained were correlated to effects evaluation of the elemental composition of all filters in the quality of the radiographic images. The elements found were: aluminum, cobalt, copper, sulfur, iron, manganese, titanium, zinc, and zirconium. The images obtained were identified in groups: Molars to 0.3 s; Incisors to 0.2 s; Incisors to 0.3 s, and for the group without filters. From the results obtained it was concluded that both unclear radiographs and ideal radiographs were produced by using filters of elementary common. Therefore, conventional filters evaluated were an acceptable option to produce quality images in dental radiology, despite differences in the composition of the alloys. (author)

    Three-dimensional (3D) computer-assisted planning requires detailed visualisation of the craniomaxillofacial region and interocclusal relationship. The aim of this study was to establish and evaluate a method to create a 3D model of the craniomaxillofacial region and to adopt intraoral digital scanning to place the lower jaw into a centric relation (CR) without the need of additional plaster casts and model surgery. A standard plastic skull modified by metallic dental wires and brackets was subjected to computed tomography (CT), cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), and intraoral digital scanning. We evaluated two different virtual bite registrations, a digital scan of the buccal dental surfaces and scanning of the wax bites to position the lower jaw into a CR, and assessed the accuracy of the integration of intraoral scanning to the CT/CBCT scans. The mean registration error of corresponding mesh points for the CT and intraoral scanned images was 0.15 ± 0.12 mm, while this error was 0.18 ± 0.13 mm for the CBCT and intraoral scanned images. The mean accuracy of the two virtual bite registrations ranged from 0.41 to 0.49 mm (buccal scan technique) and from 0.65 to 1.3 mm (virtualised wax bite technique). A method for virtual bite registration was developed. It has the potential to eliminate plaster casts and model surgery and may facilitate 3D computer-assisted planning of orthognathic surgery cases.

    Full Text Available El síndrome de Eagle es una patología infrecuente secundaria a la elongación de la apófisis estiloides y/o calcificación del ligamento estilo-hioideo. La mayoría de pacientes afectados no presentan sintomatología, aunque la presión ejercida por esta estructura morfológicamente alterada contra estructuras vecinas puede desencadenar una gran variedad de síntomas, incluyendo dolor cervicofacial, sensación de cuerpo extraño en la orofaringe, aumento en la secreción salival, cefalea y dificultad para la deglución, el habla o los movimientos de la lengua. Presentamos el caso de una paciente de 50 años de edad con el síndrome de Eagle. La tomografía computerizada en haz de cono confirmó la sospecha clínica. Como tratamiento se realizó la resección parcial de ambas apófisis estiloides mediante un abordaje intraoral. La presentación clínica, el diagnóstico diferencial y el tratamiento se describen en este artículo.Eagle syndrome is a rare condition resulting from either the elongation of the temporal styloid process or calcification of the stylohyoid ligament. Most patients are asymptomatic, but when this structure presses against other parts of the head and neck it can originate a wide range of symptoms, including cervico-facial pain, foreign body sensation in oropharynx, increased saliva secretion, headache and difficulty with swallowing, speaking and neck or tongue movements. The case of a 50-year-old woman with Eagle syndrome is reported. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT confirmed the clinical suspicion. The intraoral approach was used for the partial resection of both styloid processes. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, management and differential diagnosis are described.

    This paper describes the use of a combination of intra-oral sensory stimulation and electropalatography (EPG) in the treatment of a case with severe developmental verbal dyspraxia. A multiple-baseline design was used. The treatment duration was 11 months and started when the subject was 5 years old. The efficacy of the treatment was assessed by calculations of percentage of correctly articulated words, percentage of consonants correct, percentage of phonemes correct and percentage of words correct. Intelligibility assessments were conducted by both naïve and expert listeners. The experts also assessed visual deviances in articulatory gestures from video recordings. Qualitative analysis of EPG data was made. The subject's speech was significantly improved by the treatment in all aspects. The results and their generalization to other cases of developmental verbal dyspraxia are discussed.

    This study compared the anticaries effectiveness of an intraoral fluoride-releasing system, or IFRS, with a standard regimen of daily application of a 1.1 percent neutral sodium fluoride gel in custom trays. Caries protection in subjects in the IFRS group was comparable to that in subjects in the 1.1 percent neutral sodium fluoride group. The subjects all had head or neck cancer and had received radiation therapy, but no more recently than three months before taking part in the study. Overall, IFRS devices were well-tolerated and patient satisfaction was high. The IFRS appears to offer several advantages over the daily application of fluoride gels in custom trays.

    Full Text Available This article reports the successful surgical-orthodontic treatment of an elderly patient with dentofacial deformity and signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorder (TMD. The patient was a 63-year-old woman with a concave profile due to mandibular protrusion. To correct skeletal deformities, the mandible was posteriorly repositioned by employing intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO following presurgical orthodontic treatment. After active treatment for 31 months, the facial profile was significantly improved and satisfactory occlusion was achieved. In addition, TMD symptoms of clicking sounds on the left side and difficulty in mouth opening were resolved. Regarding the findings of magnetic resonance imaging, anterior disc displacement in the opening phase was improved in the temporomandibular joint on the left side. Furthermore, stomatognathic functions were also improved without any aggravation of age-related problems. In conclusion, surgical repositioning of the mandible using IVRO leads to both morphological and functional improvements even in elderly patients.

    The current literature suggests that low-level laser stimulation of the PC 6 acupuncture points may prevent gagging. This study aimed to determine if low-level laser therapy (LLLT) can reduce the gag reflex in children undergoing intraoral maxillary radiography. This randomized, controlled, double-blind clinical trial was conducted with 25 children with moderate-to-very severe gag reflexes who required bilateral periapical radiographic examination of the maxillary molar region. Children's anxiety levels were initially evaluated using Corah's Dental Anxiety Scale (DAS) to identify any possible relationship between gagging and anxiety. A control radiograph was taken of one randomly selected side in each patient after simulated laser application so that the patient was blinded to the experimental conditions (control group). Laser stimulation was then performed for the experimental side. A laser probe was placed on the Pericardium 6 (PC 6) acupuncture point on each wrist, and laser energy was delivered for 14 s (300 mW, energy density 4 J/cm(2)) at a distance of 1 cm from the target tissue. Following laser stimulation, the experimental radiograph was taken (experimental group). Gagging responses were measured using the Gagging Severity Criteria for each group. Data were analyzed using Spearman's rho correlations and Mann-Whitney U tests. Both mean and median gagging scores were higher in the control group than in the experimental group. Patients who were unable to tolerate the intraoral control radiography were able to tolerate the procedure after LLLT. Differences between gagging scores of the control and experimental groups were statistically significant (P = .000). There was no significant correlation between gagging severity and anxiety score (P > .05). A negative correlation was found between age and gagging score in the control group (P ˂ .05). Within the limitations of this study, LLLT of the PC 6 acupuncture points appears to be a useful technique

    In the present study, we examined clinical and laser-evoked potentials (LEP) features in two groups of chronic tension-type headache (CTTH) patients treated with two different approaches: intra-oral appliance of prosthesis, aiming to reduce muscular tenderness, and 10 mg daily amitriptyline. Eighteen patients suffering from CTTH (IHS, 2004) participated in the study. We performed a basal evaluation of clinical features and LEPs in all patients (T0) vs. 12 age- and sex-matched controls; successively, patients were randomly assigned to a two-month treatment by amitriptyline or intra-oral device appliance. The later LEPs, especially the P2 component, were significantly increased in amplitude in the CTTH group. Both the intra-oral prosthesis and amitriptyline significantly reduced headache frequency. Total Tenderness Score was significantly reduced in the group treated by the prosthesis. The amplitude of P2 response elicited by stimulation of pericranial zones showed a reduction after amitriptyline treatment. The results of this study may confirm that pericranial tenderness is primarily a phenomenon initiating a self-perpetuating circuit, favoured by central sensitisation at the level of the cortical nociceptive areas devoted to the attentive and emotive compounds of pain. Both the interventions at the peripheral and central levels may interrupt this reverberating circuit, improving the outcome of headache.

    We tried to discuss the problems on radiological protection of students in the practice of technique of intra-oral radiography with use of classmates. This radiographic practice has been performed after the technical training use of 'DXTTR' as a preclinical training. The practice was performed as training to take peri-apical, bite-wing, occlusal and eccentric projections. The mean film numbers which were used to complete those technique were 56 films. In these practice, dosimetries were performed on six locations of the body surface of every student who was taken radiograms using thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD). The measured locations were orbit, bilateral submandible, neck, chest and abdomen. The effective dose equivalent was estimated using weighting factors of International Comission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) pub. 26 and the values of tissue dose equivalent obtained by TLD measurements. The results showed that the mean value of dose equivalent of each part was 5.40 mSv at orbit, 5.06 mSv at submandible, 0.75 mSv at neck, 0.04 mSv at chest and 0.02 mSv at abdomen. The maximum value of effective equivalent dose was 17.03 mSv which was lower than the dose equivalent limit for workers (50 mSv/year) recommended by ICRP pub. 26. The mean value of effective dose equivalent was 2.36 mSv. ICRP recommended the radiation protection for students aged 18 years or over that the procedures for restricting exposure should be broadly similar to those for occupational exposure. So the results indicate that those training was considered to be controlled in some reasonable level. The mean value of risk was estimated to be 3.94 x 10{sup -5}. Because intra-oral radiographic training with use of classmates is performed under extreme non-uniform irradiation, the evaluation of effective dose equivalent was considered to be important to control this special educational exposure and useful for optimization of the educational programs of radiographic technical training

    Rapid, phasic dopamine (DA) release in the mammalian brain plays a critical role in reward processing, reinforcement learning, and motivational control. Fast scan cyclic voltammetry (FSCV) is an electrochemical technique with high spatial and temporal (sub-second) resolution that has been utilized to examine phasic DA release in several types of preparations. In vitro experiments in single-cells and brain slices and in vivo experiments in anesthetized rodents have been used to identify mechanisms that mediate dopamine release and uptake under normal conditions and in disease models. Over the last 20 years, in vivo FSCV experiments in awake, freely moving rodents have also provided insight of dopaminergic mechanisms in reward processing and reward learning. One major advantage of the awake, freely moving preparation is the ability to examine rapid DA fluctuations that are time-locked to specific behavioral events or to reward or cue presentation. However, one limitation of combined behavior and voltammetry experiments is the difficulty of dissociating DA effects that are specific to primary rewarding or aversive stimuli from co-occurring DA fluctuations that mediate reward-directed or other motor behaviors. Here, we describe a combined method using in vivo FSCV and intra-oral infusion in an awake rat to directly investigate DA responses to oral tastants. In these experiments, oral tastants are infused directly to the palate of the rat--bypassing reward-directed behavior and voluntary drinking behavior--allowing for direct examination of DA responses to tastant stimuli.

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of acupuncture point PC6 (Neiguan) in controlling nausea during intraoral impression taking. This study was conducted in Piracicaba, São Paulo, Brazil. The sample consisted of 33 adult volunteers with nausea, who were randomly divided into control and study groups, and treated with nonpenetrating sham acupuncture and real acupuncture, respectively, at acupoint PC6. The two groups had two maxillary impressions taken, one prior to acupuncture and the other after acupuncture. The nausea assessment was made using the visual analog scale, Gagging Severity Index (GSI), and Gagging Prevention Index. Volunteers' expectation that nausea would be reduced through acupuncture was also assessed. For statistical analysis, we used the t test and the Spearman correlation (p  0.05). No correlation existed between the expected and the actual reductions in nausea. Our results indicate that acupoint PC6 was effective for controlling nausea during the maxillary impression-taking procedure. Patients' expectation did not influence the results.

    The current study developed through layer-by-layer deposition a multilayer membrane for intraoral drug delivery and analyzed the biochemical, functional, and biological properties of this membrane. For that purpose, we designed a three-layer chlorhexidine-incorporated membrane composed by pure chitosan and alginate. The biochemical, functional, and biological properties were analyzed by the following tests: degradation in saliva medium; controlled drug release; water absorption, mass loss; pH analysis; and biocompatibility through fibroblast cell viability by MTT assay. All tests were conducted at three different periods (24, 48 and 72hours). The results demonstrated that hybrid membranes composed by alginate and chitosan with glycerol had greater water absorption and mass loss in buffer solution and in artificial saliva. The controlled drug release test revealed that the hybrid membrane exhibited greater drug release (0.075%). All chlorhexidine-incorporated membranes reduced the cell viability, and chitosan membranes with and without glycerol did not interfere with fibroblast viability. The biochemical and biophysical characteristics of the designed membranes and the findings of cell viability tests indicate great potential for application in Dentistry.

    Denture stomatitis (DS) is a fungal infection characterized by inflammation of the oral mucosa in direct contact with the denture and affects up to 50% of denture wearers. Despite the prevalence, very little is known about the role of fungal or host factors that contribute to pathogenesis. Recently, we developed a novel intraoral denture system for rodent research. This denture system consists of custom-fitted fixed and removable parts to allow repeated sampling and longitudinal studies. The purpose of this study was to use this denture system to develop a clinically relevant animal model of DS. To establish DS, rats were inoculated with pelleted Candida albicans, which resulted in sustained colonization of the denture and palate for 8 weeks postinoculation. Biofilm formation on the denture was observed by week 4 and on the palate by week 6 postinoculation. Rats were monitored for clinical signs of disease by assigning a clinical score after macroscopic examination of the palate tissue according to Newton's method. By week 4 postinoculation, the majority of inoculated rats with dentures exhibited a clinical score of 1 (pinpoint erythema). By week 6 and week 8 postinoculation, increasing percentages of rats exhibited a clinical score of 2 (diffuse erythema/edema). Histological analysis of palate tissue demonstrated progressively increasing inflammatory cell recruitment throughout the time course of the infection. Palatal biofilm formation was commensurate with development of palatal erythema, which suggests a role for biofilm in the inflammatory response.

    In this work we used the EGS4 code in a simulated study of dose percentage in intraoral examination to 10 energy range to 140 keV. The simulation was carried out on a model consisting of different geometry (cheek, tooth and mouth cavity) under normal incidence X-ray beam over the surface of the various simulated materials. It was observed that for energy smaller than 30 keV most of the energy is deposited on the cheek. In 30 keV there is a point of maximum radiation absorption in the tooth (approximately 60% of the energy of the incident radiation is deposited on the tooth) in relation to other simulated materials. It means that in this energy there is a better contrast in the radiographic image of the tooth and a smaller dose on the cheek. In 40 keV the deposited energy in the tooth is roughly equal to the energy that is transmitted (to the radiographic film or buccal cavity) causing a degradation in the radiographic image and/or a higher dose in the oral cavity. For energies above 40 keV, the amount of energy transmitted (to the oral cavity and/or radiographic film) is higher than the energy deposited in other materials, i.e, it only contributes to increasing of dose in the regions close to the oral cavity and the radiographic image degradation. These results can provide important information for radiological procedures applied in dentistry where the image quality is a relevant factor to a dental evaluation needs as well as reducing dose in the oral cavity.

We evaluated the team work of surgeon and cytologist to improve diagnostic accuracy. Two steps are important for accuracy: sampling aspirate that should be done together by surgeon and cytologist and cytological microscopic analysis of the smears that should be performed by an experienced cytologist. The study included 132 patients with intraoral minor salivary gland tumours between 2002 and 2011. Adequate material was obtained from 121 (91.7%) patients. FNAC was usually performed by cytologist in a team with maxillofacial surgeon at cytology department that is more convenient for preparing the samples and especially for ROSE procedure (rapid-on site evaluation) of smears. In such a way the cytologist checked the adequacy of samples and decided whether some ancillary techniques should be used and therefore repeat FNAC. A total of 82 patients underwent surgery, 40 with malignant and 42 with benign tumours. Preoperative cytological diagnoses were compared with histopathological ones using histopathology as a gold standard. The most common benign tumour was pleomorphic adenoma and among malignant tumours adenoid cystic carcinoma. The most commonly affected site was the palate. The team work of surgeon and cytologist achieved specificity of 95.1%, sensitivity of 97.6% and diagnostic accuracy of 96.3%. We can conclude that although subclassification of some tumour types of salivary glands remains poor, FNAC is invaluable in patient triage and therefore should be considered in the first line investigations of these lesions by the cytologist and surgeon.

    Our oral cancer chemoprevention trial data implied that patient-specific differences in local retention and metabolism of freeze-dried components of black raspberries (BRB) affected therapeutic responsiveness. Subsequent studies have confirmed that anthocyanins are key contributors to BRB's chemopreventive effects. Consequently, functional assays, immunoblotting, and immunohistochemical analyses to evaluate levels and distribution of BRB anthocyanin-relevant metabolic enzymes in human oral tissues were conducted. Liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS-MS) analyses of time course saliva samples collected following BRB rinses were conducted to assess local pharmacokinetics and compare the capacities of three different BRB rinse formulations to provide sustained intraoral levels of anthocyanins. Protein profiles showed the presence of key metabolic enzymes in all 15 oral mucosal tissues evaluated, whereas immunohistochemistry confirmed these enzymes were distributed within surface oral epithelia and terminal salivary ducts. β-Glucosidase assays confirmed that whole and microflora-reduced saliva can deglycosylate BRB anthocyanins, enabling generation of the bioactive aglycone, cyanidin. LC/MS-MS analyses showed retention of parent anthocyanins and their functional, stable metabolite, protocatechuic acid, in saliva for up to 4 hours after rinsing. Furthermore, postrinse saliva samples contained glucuronidated anthocyanin conjugates, consistent with intracellular uptake and phase II conversion of BRB anthocyanins into forms amenable to local recycling. Our data show that comparable to the small intestine, the requisite hydrolytic, phase II and efflux transporting enzymes necessary for local enteric recycling are present and functional in human oral mucosa. Notably, interpatient differences in anthocyanin bioactivation and capacities for enteric recycling would impact treatment as retention of bioactivated chemopreventives at the target site would sustain

    The purpose of this study was to determine the corrosive effects of multi-species biofilms on intra-oral magnets in the presence and absence of sucrose. Using pooled human saliva as an inoculum, biofilms were grown on the surfaces of 90 neodymium-iron-boron (Nd2Fe14B) magnets in a constant depth film fermentor under aerobic conditions at 37 degrees C. The fluid phase was a mucin-containing artificial saliva (delivered at a rate of 0.72/litres day-1), and, after 15 days, 100 ml of 10% (w/v) sucrose was added (as three pulses of 33.3 ml) each day for a further 15 days. Six magnets with attached biofilms were removed periodically. On each sampling occasion the numbers of aerobes, anaerobes, streptococci, veillonellae and actinomyces in each biofilm, the pH of the fermentor effluent and the dry mass of the magnets were determined. Addition of sucrose to the fermentor resulted in a fall in pH (from a mean of 6.94 to a mean of 4.96), an increase in the proportion of streptococci and a decrease in the proportion of veillonellae comprising the biofilms. The decrease in mass of the magnets was 28-fold greater in the presence of sucrose than in its absence. The results of this study have shown that the presence of sucrose affects the microbial composition of multi-species biofilms growing on Nd2Fe14B magnets and results in a marked increase in corrosion of the magnets.

    Objective Condylectomy was performed to treat condylar osteoma or hyperplasia.Introduced two methods of condylectomy via intraoral approach and evaluated their clinical results.Methods Thirty-five patients,aging from 22 to 57.21 years,were treated by condylectomy via intraoral approach,of which 21 were condyle osteoma,14 hemimandibular hyperplasia and condylar hyperplasia.Intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy (IVRO) were used in 32 patients and intraoral condylectomy via coronoid process resection was used in 3 patients.Results The treatment results including oral function and facial symmetry after the operation were good in all patients.The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction syndrome alleviated or disappeared. The follow-up period was 6 months to 3 years,and no relapse of condylar osteoma or hyperplasia was found.The patients who had IVRO and TMJ reconstruction had some degree of transplanted bone resorption,and one patients had relapse of facial deformity. But the patients who had intraoral condylectomy via coronoid process resection only had mild condyle remodeling and no obvious bone resorption was noted. Conclusions The two methods of intraoral condylectomy introduced in this stugy can successfully correct the facial deformity and TMJ dysfunction caused by condylar osteoma or hyperplasia.But the surgeons need to have excellent surgical skills and careful selection of the indications.%目的 总结髁突切除术口内入路的两种术式及初步临床效果.方法 采用口内入路髁突切除术共治疗35例患者,年龄22~57岁,其中21例为髁突骨瘤,14例为半侧颌骨肥大畸形伴发的髁突良性肥大.32例经口内下颌升支垂直截骨入路,3例经口内喙突切除人路.结果 35例患者术后咬合关系及咬合功能、开口度、面部对称性恢复良好,颞下颌关节紊乱症状减轻或消失.术后随访6~36个月,32例口内下颌升支垂直截骨人路髁突切除术及关节重建的患者因游离移植的骨

    Halitosis occurs in approximately 30% of the adult population and has a negative social and psychological impact on affected individuals. Mouthwashes may be used to prevent unpleasant odour, with long-duration of effect being a desirable attribute. The aim of this study was to assess the long-term efficacy of CB12 (a mixture of 0.3% zinc acetate and 0.025% chlorhexidine) for the treatment of intra-oral halitosis. Thirty-four subjects with confirmed intra-oral halitosis were randomized into a double-blind, controlled, cross-over study to one of 2 groups; (i) CB12-water-water or (ii) water-CB12-CB12. Each group comprised 3 treatments, each given evening and morning (12 h apart) on consecutive study days, with a 5 d washout between treatments. Intra-oral halitosis was assessed objectively by measuring concentrations of hydrogen sulphide, methyl mercaptan, dimethyl sulphide and total volatile sulphur compound (VSC) concentrations and subjectively using organoleptic score (OLS). These were measured at baseline, 12 h after the evening rinse (i.e. 12 h overnight assessment) and 12 h after the daytime rinse (i.e. 12 h day time assessment). CB12 significantly reduced mean hydrogen sulphide, methyl mercaptan, dimethyl sulphide and VSC concentrations, with a duration of effect lasting 12 h, whether assessed overnight (all p  ⩽  0.0003 versus water) or during the day (all p  ⩽  0.0007 versus water). CB12's effect on OLS was also evident for 12 h overnight (p  =  0.0043). CB12 was well-tolerated. In conclusion, CB12 showed a clear and durable effect on intra-oral halitosis which lasted at least 12 h, both during the day and overnight, with consistent effect on both objective and subjective variables.

    Polymerization shrinkage causes microleakage of resin composite restorations. New materials and operative techniques should be developed in order to reduce polymerization shrinkage. This research studied the effects of cooled composite inserts and room-temperature composite inserts in the sealing ability of resin composite restorations placed at intraoral temperatures. Forty-eight extracted human molars (providing a total of 155 sections) were kept at intraoral temperatures, and Class V cavities were restored with an ormocer-based resin composite (Admira, Voco). Three restorative techniques were used: conventional bulk insertion (Group I or control group) (n = 53 sections), room-temperature resin composite inserts (Group II) (n = 52) and cooled resin composite inserts (Group III) (n = 50). Microleakage and penetrating microleakage were studied under the microscope. Cooled composite inserts reduce microleakage at the gingival margins with respect to Groups I (p = 0.002) and II (p = 0.014). When small-size cooled composite inserts were used, the sealing ability at the gingival margins of Class V composite restorations was improved with respect to the bulk insertion technique and the room-temperature composite inserts technique.

    Full Text Available El síndrome de dolor regional complejo (SDRC se manifiestan con una clínica variada que se caracteriza por dolor, impotencia funcional, trastornos vaso-sudomotores y alteraciones tróficas. Está causado por una lesión primaria o una disfunción del Sistema Nervioso Periférico, estableciéndose dos grupos: SDRC-I que sustituye al término DSR y el SDRCII en lugar del término causalgia. Caso clínico: Varón de 37 años de edad, que tras ser sometido a una artroscopia de hombro comenzó a presentar dolor en el hombro y limitación funcional importante, así como ciertos cambios vasomotores de la misma extremidad, por lo que se diagnosticó de SDRC. El paciente siguió varias pautas de tratamiento analgésico por vía oral, fue sometido a numerosas infiltraciones intraarticulares, se realizaron bloqueos del ganglio estrellado e inició tratamiento rehabilitador. Durante estos meses la evolución clínica del paciente fue tórpida, reapareciendo el dolor en todas las ocasiones y sin presentar mejoría de la movilidad. Se decidió iniciar tratamiento con parches de lidocaína al 5%, con lo que se consiguió controlar el dolor del paciente y finalizó la rehabilitación con recuperación completa. El parche de lidocaína al 5% es un analgésico tópico desarrollado para el tratamiento del dolor neuropático de origen periférico. Está aprobado en EEUU para el tratamiento de la neuralgia postherpética. Sin embargo, se está probando su utilización en otras formas de dolor neuropático, como la neuropatía diabética, el dolor crónico de espalda y el dolor miofascial. El SDRC está asociado con una actividad anormal del sistema nervioso simpático, por lo que el bloqueo simpático mediante anestésicos locales es ampliamente utilizado. En el caso concreto de los parches de lidocaína al 5% se ha publicado un caso de tratamiento de forma efectiva. Este caso es similar al que nosotros describimos, que también fue refractario al tratamiento

En pacientes con patología vascular severa quirúrgica, el tratamiento analgésico efectivo se suele realizar mediante bloqueo continuo epidural. Sin embargo, la administración de analgésicos, tanto opiáceos como no opiáceos, por vía intravenosa, es una alternativa a la vía epidural cuando esta es desestimada.

Clinical case: We present the case of a 63-years old male patient carrying a femoro-popliteus bypass in the first portion of the left lower limb that underwent emergency surgery after being diagnosed of a false septic aneurysm in the left iliac artery with breakage of the femoro-popliteus anastomosis. General anesthesia based on remifentanyl was decided instead of epidural central blockade due to the urgent nature of the surgery and the regular

    Radiation-induced xerostomia can result in the rapid onset and progression of dental caries in head and neck cancer patients. Topically applied fluorides have been successfully used to inhibit the formation of dental caries in this population. However, because intensive daily self-application is required, compliance is an issue. The intraoral fluoride-releasing system (IFRS) containing a sodium fluoride core is a newly developed, sustained-release, passive drug delivery system that does not require patient involvement except for periodic replacement, thus reducing the effect of patient compliance on its effectiveness in dental caries prevention. Twenty-two head and neck cancer patients from U. T. M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, with radiation-induced xerostomia, were entered into a pilot study to contrast the daily home use of a 0.4% stannous fluoride-gel-containing tray (control group) to IFRS (study group) with respect to tolerability and adherence, and to obtain information on relative caries preventive efficacy. Participants were stratified on the basis of radiation exposure and randomly assigned to treatment with either IFRS or stannous fluoride gel. Patients in both groups were fitted with two IFRS retainers and also were instructed to use a 1100-ppm fluoride conventional sodium fluoride dentifrice twice daily. The study was conducted as a single-blinded, parallel-cell trial. Pre-existing carious lesions were restored prior to the beginning of the study. The efficacy variable was determined by the mean number of new or recurrent decayed surfaces. Patients were examined for caries 4, 8, 12, 24, 36, and 48 weeks after initiation of treatment. Reports of adverse reactions were based on information volunteered by patients and that were elicited during interviews. At baseline, the resting and stimulated salivary flow rates (g/5min) were significantly greater in the control group than in the study group (pIFRS groups during the study period. The rate of new or

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Neurologically, it is proven that stimulation of larger diameter fibers - e.g. using appropriate coldness, warmth, rubbing, pressure or vibration- can close the neural "gate" so that the central perception of itch and pain is reduced. This fact is based upon "Gate-control" theory of Melzack and Wall. Presentation of the hypothesis Syringe Micro Vibrator is a new design being introduced for the first time in the field of Dentistry. This device is a promising breakthrough in pain and anxiety management and may deliver solution for clinicians plagued with patient pain phobia. It has an off-set rotating micro vibration creator with ultra high frequency and ultra low altitude that can be easily placed on any standard dental syringe and some disposable syringes. This device was registered as an invention in dentistry and received Iran National Patent number of 63765. Testing the hypothesis By creating micro vibration, this device would be effective in reducing the pain and anxiety confronted with most types of intraoral injections as palatal, mandibular block, intraligamental and local infiltration. From the aspect of the patient pain management, this device contributes both physiologically (based on Gate Control Theory of pain and psychologically (based on the device function as will be explained by dentist to the patient as a modern pain reducing technology. From the aspect of clinician, SMV motor provides vibrations with ultra high frequency to alleviate pain, but since it has ultra low vibration altitude, it has no adverse effect on the clinician dexterity and accuracy during injection and it does not interfere with pin point localization of injection site. Implications of the hypothesis Upon mounting on a conventional dental anesthesia injection syringe, SMV is switched on and the clinician then uses normal injection technique to administer the anesthetic. This device is not only a useful accessory device for ordinary patients

    Full Text Available Introducción: El bloqueo del nervio ciático en la fosa poplítea proporciona una adecuada y prolongada analgesia postoperatoria en la cirugía del pie y tobillo. La principal ventaja del abordaje lateral es que no es preciso modificar la posición de decúbito supino del paciente para la realización de la técnica, mientras que en el abordaje posterior el paciente ha de colocarse en decúbito prono, lo cual puede resultar difícil e incluso desaconsejable en determinadas situaciones: estados avanzados de gestación, inestabilidad hemodinámica y ventilación mecánica. Material y método: Se incluyeron pacientes valorados con riesgo anestésico ASA I-II, programados para cirugía ortopédica-traumatológica del pie o tobillo. Se realizó un bloqueo del nervio ciático en la fosa poplítea mediante abordaje lateral según la técnica descrita por Vloka J.D y Hadzic A, empleándose una aguja para neuroestimulación, biselada de calibre 22G x 80 mm.

Foi administrada solução a 0,5% de ropivacaína (Grupo Ropi ou bupivacaína a 0,5% com epinefrina (Grupo Bupi. O bloqueio foi realizado utilizando estimulador de nervo periférico e sendo injetados 30 mL de anestésico local. Quatro espirometrias foram realizadas em cada paciente: antes do bloqueio, 30 minutos, 4 e 6 horas após. Os pacientes não receberam sedação. RESULTADOS: Um paciente do Grupo Ropi e três pacientes do Grupo Bupi foram excluídos do estudo por falha de bloqueio. A redução da CVF no Grupo Ropi foi máxima aos 30 minutos (25,1% e a partir de então houve tendência progressiva à recuperação. Já com bupivacaína, a redução da CVF pareceu ser menos acentuada nos diversos momentos estudados; observou-se redução adicional entre 30 minutos (15,8% e 4 horas (17,3%, sendo esta sem diferença estatística. A partir de 4 horas, notou-se tendência à recuperação. Em ambos os grupos, após 6 horas de bloqueio a CVF encontra-se ainda abaixo dos valores prévios. CONCLUSÕES: O bloqueio interescalênico reduz a CVF na maioria dos casos; as alterações foram mais acentuadas no Grupo Ropivacaína.JUSTIFICATIVA Y OBJETIVOS: La vía interescalénica es uno de los accesos más a menudo utilizados en el bloqueo del plexo braquial.

    Full Text Available Uno de los mayores obstáculos en la producción de embriones in vitro con fines de investigación básica, comerciales, o de conservación, es el detenimiento temprano del clivaje que ocurre de forma específica en una etapa del desarrollo. Para explicar este fenómeno se han postulado diferentes factores causales como: desórdenes en la cromatina, rearreglos del citoesqueleto, estrés oxidativo y daños mitocondriales. Esta última propuesta ha recibido gran atención, debido a que la mitocondria es fuente de especies reactivas de oxígeno (EROs y el estrés oxidativo es un mediador crítico de procesos fisiológicos y estados patológicos. Durante los últimos años se ha demostrado que el peróxido de hidrógeno (H2O2 es una molécula pivotante capaz de desencadenar muerte celular por diferentes mecanismos que pueden involucrar o no a los factores de transcripción: NFκB - p53, y es ejecutado por caspasas efectoras. Se cree que la mitocondria podría estar jugando un papel importante como productora o como blanco del H2O2, y como mediadora en la muerte por apoptosis de los embriones. El objetivo de esta revisión es mostrar el estado del arte en cuanto a la apoptosis desencadenada por estrés oxidativo y mediada por la mitocondria en los embriones bovinos producidos in vitro, como parte de la explicación del bloqueo del clivaje y la baja eficiencia que aún se tiene en este proceso.One of the biggest obstacles in the in vitro embryo production for basic research, commercial purposes, or conservation, is the blockade of the early cleavage, which occurs on a species-specific manner in a particular stage of development. To explain this phenomenon some causative factors have been postulated such as: disturbances in chromatin, cytoskeleton rearrangement, oxidative stress and mitochondrial damage. The latter has received considerable attention because mitochondrion is a source of reactive oxygen species (ROS, and oxidative stress is a critical

Além dos opióides, os anestésicos locais têm sido utilizados nos bloqueios periféricos e centrais para se obter a analgesia pós-operatória. O objetivo deste estudo foi comparar duas técnicas de bloqueio dos nervos intercostais para analgesia pós-operatória em colecistectomias abertas. MÉTODO: Sessenta pacientes foram submetidos a colecistectomias abertas com incisão subcostal e receberam bloqueio intercostal (Grupo IC, n=30 ou bloqueio interpleural (Grupo IP, n=30, ambos com 100 mg de bupivacaína a 0,5% com adrenalina, para analgesia pós-operatória. Foram avaliados os tempos de analgesia e as queixas relatadas pelos pacientes. RESULTADOS: A qualidade da analgesia foi considerada boa para ambas as técnicas. A duração média de analgesia foi de 505 minutos no grupo IP e 620 minutos no grupo IC, não havendo diferença estatística entre eles. Náuseas, vômitos e dor abdominal leve foram as queixas pós-operatórias mais freqüentes. Não se constatou qualquer complicação pós-operatória associada exclusivamente aos bloqueios, assim como não foi evidenciado nenhum caso de pneumotórax. CONCLUSÕES: Concluiu-se que as técnicas promoveram analgesia satisfatória após colecistectomia, sendo que o bloqueio interpleural apresentou maior facilidade de execução.JUSTIFICATIVA Y OBJETIVOS: La analgesia en el pós-operatorio es deseada por los pacientes y ha sido practicada por la mayoría de los anestesiologistas.

El presente relato tiene como objetivos presentar un caso de raquianestesia total después del bloqueo del plexo lumbar por la vía posterior y discutir el probable mecanismo fisiopatológico. RELATO DEL CASO: Paciente del sexo masculino, 34 años, 97 kg, estado físico ASA I, programado para artroplastia total de la cadera. Fue realizada anestesia general seguida de bloqueo del plexo lumbar derecho por la vía posterior con auxilio de estimulador de nervio periférico. La aguja fue introducida hasta una profundidad de 8 cm, perpendicular a la piel, y a una distancia de 4 cm de la línea media sobre una línea perpendicular al proceso espinoso de L4. Después de la identificación de respuesta motora en el cuadriceps, la intensidad de la corriente de estimulación se redujo hasta 0,35 mA, siendo entonces administrada ropivacaína a 0,5% (39 mL. Durante la inyección, fueron verificadas contracciones intermitentes del cuadriceps. Después del bloqueo, el paciente evolucionó con apnea, hipotensión arterial y midriasis bilateral. Al final de la cirugía, presentaba bloqueo motor en los dos miembros inferiores que solo mejoró nueve horas después de la realización del bloqueo. En el postoperatorio, el paciente se quejó de dolor intenso, recibiendo alta hospitalaria 12 días después de la cirugía sin anormalidades motora o sensitiva. CONCLUSIONES: La identificación del compartimento del psoas, donde está el plexo lumbar, exige la utilización de intensidad de corriente entre 0,5 e 1 mA. La incidencia de respuesta motora con bajas corrientes puede indicar posicionamiento de la aguja dentro del recubrimiento que envuelve la raíz nerviosa y

    Technical evolution in maxillofacial radiology has in the last decade provided faster films and the constant potential generator. The consequences of these innovations for radiographic contrast and energy imparted to the patient are analysed. On the basis of physical measurements a test model has been developed for correcting exposure parameters in order to maintain or restore image contrast. These measurements are expressed in and developed from basic radiological concepts and physical formulas presented in an earlier paper (Helmrot E. et al., Dentomaxillofac. Radiol. 1991; 20: 135-46). The test model can also be used to demonstrate the balance between contrast and energy imparted to the patient in the radiographic process. Changing to constant potential generators and faster film may each result in a degradation in contrast, which is possible to restore by a controlled adjustment of the kV-setting. Maintenance of constant image quality results in a slight reduction in the net gain in energy imparted, due to the generator and/or film shift. When, for example, a conventional single-pulse generator operated at 65kVp tube potential was replaced by a modern constant potential unit, the kV-setting had to be decreased by 5 to 8 kV to maintain the same radiographic contrast. This correction could be done without increasing energy imparted to the patient, taking into account the fact that the spectral characters of the photon energy are not identical. If, in addition, faster intraoral film with lower film contrast was introduced, together with the constant potential unit, the kV-setting had to be further decreased to maintain the radiographic contrast.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

    Full Text Available Objectives: This study sought to assess the diagnostic accuracy of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT with different voxel sizes and intraoral digital radiography with photostimulable phosphor (PSP plate for detection of periapical (PA bone lesions.Materials and Methods: In this ex vivo diagnostic study, one-millimeter defects were created in the alveolar sockets of 15 bone blocks, each with two posterior teeth. A no-defect control group was also included. Digital PA radiographs with PSP plates and CBCT scans with 200, 250 and 300μ voxel sizes were obtained. Four observers evaluated the possibility of lesion detection using a 5-point scale. Sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV and negative predicative value (NPV were analyzed using one-way ANOVA and Tamhane’s post hoc test. Kappa and weighted kappa statistics were applied to assess intraobserver and interobserver agreements.Results: Cochrane Q test showed no significant difference between PSP and CBCT imaging modalities in terms of kappa and weighted kappa statistics (P=0.675. The complete sensitivity and complete NPV for 200 and 250 μ voxel sizes were higher than those of 300 μ voxel size and digital radiography (P<0.001. No significant difference was noted in other parameters among other imaging modalities (P=0.403.Conclusions: The results showed that high-resolution CBCT scans had higher diagnostic accuracy than PSP digital radiography for detection of artificially created PA bone lesions.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2015-06-15

    Purpose: Intraoral electron shields used in radiotherapy are designed to minimize radiation exposure to non-treatment tissue. Sites where shields are used include but are not limited to, the treatment of lips, cheeks and ears whilst shielding the underlying oral cavity, tongue, gingival or temporal region. However their use produces an enhancement in dose on the beam side caused by an increase in electron backscatter radiation. This work designs a new shield incorporating copper, aluminium and wax in a step down filter arrangement to minimise backscatter whilst minimizing overall shield thickness. Methods: For electron beams ranging from 6 MeV to 10 MeV, shields of varying designs and thicknesses were assessed to determine the thinnest shield design that could be produced whilst minimising backscattered radiation to a clinically acceptable level. This was performed with conventional lead and wax shields as well as varying quantities of aluminium and copper foils. Results: From tested shield designs, a new shield design of 4 mm lead, 0.6 mm copper, 1.0 mm aluminium and 1.5 mm wax (3.1 mm added filtration, 7.1 mm total thickness) provided a clinically acceptable (no greater than 110% dose) backscatter and transmission reduction and matched a standard 4.5 mm lead and 10 mm wax (total thickness 14.5 mm) electron shield. Dose enhancement values of no more than 10 % were measured utilising this shield design with a 50 % reduction in shield thickness. Conclusion: The thinner layered shield reduced backscattered radiation dose to less than 10% enhancement for beam energies on 10 MeV and less and will allow easier patient set up. The thinner shields are tolerated better by patients when mucosal reactions occur as they place less physical pressure on these sites during treatment due to their smaller size and thickness.

    The aim of this study was to investigate temporal and spatial aspects of somatosensory changes after topical application of capsaicin, menthol and local anesthetics (LA) on the gingiva with the use of intraoral palpometers and thermal devices. Sixteen healthy volunteers (eight male, eight female) participated. Four topical preparations (capsaicin, menthol, LA and Vaseline as a control) were randomly applied to the gingiva around the first premolar in the upper jaw via individual oral templates, which allowed spatial mapping of somatosensory changes at and adjacent to the site of application. The topical drugs were applied for 15 min in a randomized and balanced sequence. The perceived preparation-evoked pain intensity was recorded with the use of 0-10 visual analog scales (VAS). Standardized mechanical and thermal stimuli were applied before, during and up to 30 min after the topical applications, and numerical rating scales (NRS) were used to score the perceived intensity of the stimuli. Peak VAS, area under the curve and mean VAS preparation-evoked pain scores for capsaicin, menthol, LA and control were compared with paired t tests. NRS scores for mechanical and thermal test stimuli were analyzed with four-way repeated measurements analyses of variance. Capsaicin evoked significantly higher VAS pain parameters as well as higher NRS scores to heat stimuli than control (P capsaicin caused sensitization to heat stimuli at and adjacent to the application area. In conclusion, this study for the first time demonstrates the time course of capsaicin-evoked heat hyperalgesia in and outside the site of application at the oral mucosa (primary and secondary hyperalgesia).

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS is a very important and prevalent disease, which is associated with a poor quality of life in many patients. Treatments for OSAS include surgery, Continuos Positive Air way Pressure, and an intraoral mandibular repositioner (IOMR, but the tendency of sleep centers is to emphasize the apnea index, neglecting quality of life as treatment outcome. OBJECTIVE: To verify to what extent treatment with an IOMR improves the OSAS patient's quality of life. METHOD: Eleven male patients aged 34 to 63 years (mean=49 with mild to moderate OSAS were evaluated using the Calgary SAQLI questionnaire applied before and four weeks after treatment with an IOMR. The mandibular repositioners were manufactured individually for each patient with acrylic polymer and equipped with a retentive device to maintain the mandible in a forward position during sleep. RESULTS: Excellent improvement in the quality of life was observed in five patients (45.5% and excellent improvement in symptoms in 10 (90.9%. CONCLUSION: The systematic use of the IOMR indicates a clear improvement in the global quality of life as well as in the symptoms of patients with OSAS.CONTEXTO:A síndrome da apnéia obstrutiva do sono (SAOS é importante e prevalente doença associada à má qualidade de vida em muitos pacientes.

Existen bases anatómicas y fisiológicas para producir un bloqueo simpático selectivo utilizando agentes neurolíticos en los ganglios torácicos T2 y T3, considerados estaciones sinápticas que se distribuyen en el miembro superior. Objetivo: Determinar la eficacia del bloqueo neurolítico del tercer ganglio dorsal en el síndrome de Raynaud de una serie de casos. Material y métodos: Se realizó la revisión de expedientes de una serie de ocho casos con fenómeno de Raynaud de causa multifactorial, en la Clínica del Dolor de la Unidad Médica de Alta Especialidad Monterrey; Nuevo León, México. Casos: Ocho casos de 41 a 72 años de edad con fenómeno de Raynaud, tratados médicamente, a los cuales se les realizaron simpaticolisis del tercer ganglio dorsal. Conclusiones: El fenómeno de Raynaud tiene una prevalencia que va del 1 al 25%, en este hay una actividad simpática aumentada por lo que al realizar una simpaticolisis selectiva se logra mejorar el dolor isquémico, el cual está determinado por la insuficiencia total o parcial en el aporte de oxígeno a los tejidos, además de que tenemos bases anatómicas y fisiológicas para limitar el bloqueo a los ganglios T2 y T3, considerados como las estaciones sinápticas que interrumpen los impulsos que se distribuyen en el miembro superior, siendo por tanto más selectivos y con menores efectos adversos para el paciente.Background: Raynaud's phenomenon, a vascular disorder that is common in the general population, consists of paroxysmal onset distal vasospasm in small cutaneous arteries and arterioles of extremities, usually with little systemic impact.

    Full Text Available JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: O uso de ultrassom para guiar a punção em bloqueios de nervos periféricos tem-se tornado cada vez mais frequente. Com a menor probabilidade de promover lesões vasculares, o ultrassom torna-se uma ferramenta interessante na realização de bloqueios periféricos, especialmente nos pacientes em uso de anticoagulantes ou com distúrbios da coagulação. O objetivo foi relatar dois casos em que se realizaram os bloqueios isquiático e femoral guiados por ultrassom em pacientes anticoagulados. RELATO DOS CASOS: No primeiro caso, a cirurgia realizada consistiu na amputação de antepé esquerdo devido a necrose e sinais de infecção e, no segundo caso, em limpeza cirúrgica de joelho esquerdo. Os pacientes apr esentavam distúrbios de coagulação com atividade de protrombina e tempo de tromboplastina ativado acima dos valores da normalidade. Ambos os pacientes foram submetidos a bloqueio femoral e isquiático guiados por ultrassom, evoluindo sem alteração motora ou sensitiva nos territórios desses nervos e sem hematoma no local da punção. CONCLUSÕES: A anticoagulação impõe certas restrições à aplicação das técnicas anestésicas regionais clássicas. Com o avanço dos equipamentos e métodos de ultrassom, hoje é possível identificar com alta precisão estruturas vasculares e neurais. Isso possibilita que a punção guiada por ultrassom seja mais precisa, tanto para atingir a área de interesse como para minimizar os riscos de lesão vascular acidental. Até o presente, não se recomenda a realização de bloqueio periférico em pacientes anticoagulados ou portadores de coagulopatias. Entretanto, considerando que há poucos relatos sobre bloqueios regionais com ultrassom em situações de coagulopatias, a segurança de tal técnica nessas condições ainda não foi estabelecida.JUSTIFICATIVA Y OBJETIVOS: El uso del ultrasonido para guiar la punción en bloqueos de nervios periféricos se ha convertido

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the distribution and application of digital intraoral radiographic techniques within general dental practices and to compare these with film-based systems in terms of patient dose reduction. Materials and Methods: 1100 questionnaires were handed out to general dental practitioners. Data was analyzed with respect to the type of system by using descriptive statistics and nonparametric tests, i.e. Kruskal-Wallis, Mann-Whitney and chi-square test (SPSS 20). Results: 64% of the questioned dentists still use film-based radiology, 23% utilize storage phosphor plate (SPP) systems and 13% use a charge-coupled device (CCD). A strong correlation between the number of dentists working in a practice and the use of digital dental imaging was observed. Almost 3/4 of the film users work with E- or F-speed film. 45% of them refuse to change to a digital system. The use of lead aprons was popular, while only a minority preferred thyroid shields and rectangular collimators. A fourfold reduction of exposure time from D-speed film to CCD systems was observed. Due to detector size and positioning errors, users of CCD systems take significantly more single-tooth radiographs in total. Considering the number of radiographs per patient, there is only a slight tendency towards more X-rays with CCD systems. Up to image generation, digital systems seem to be as or even more difficult to handle than film-based systems, while their handling was favored after radiographic exposure. Conclusion: Despite a slight increase of radiographs taken with CCD systems, there is a significant dosage reduction. Corresponding to the decrease in exposure time, the patient dose for SPP systems is reduced to one half compared to film. The main issues in CCD technology are positioning errors and the size of the X-ray detectors which are difficult to eliminate. The usage of radiation protection measures still needs to be improved.

    Full Text Available Los bloqueos nerviosos periféricos pueden ser una alternativa a la analgesia intravenosa y epidural en el tratamiento del miembro fantasma doloroso. La dificultad en la localización del nervio ciático mediante neuroestimulación en pacientes con arteriopatía periférica y neuropatía puede verse aumentada por el hecho de presentar una amputación del miembro inferior, que imposibilita la observación de una respuesta motora en el pie coincidiendo con la localización del nervio. En estos casos, la ecografía puede convertirse en una técnica de localización nerviosa determinante del éxito de la analgesia ya que permite la identificación del nervio, así como la visualización en tiempo real de la posición relativa de la aguja y catéter respecto al nervio y la difusión del anestésico local administrado. Se presenta el caso de un paciente con miembro fantasma doloroso resistente al tratamiento convencional que se controló con un bloqueo ciático continuo con catéter estimulador guiado con ecografía.Peripheral nerve blocks can be an alternative to intravenous and epidural analgesia in the treatment of phantom limb pain. The difficulty of localizing the sciatic nerve through neurostimulation in patients with peripheral arteriopathy and neuropathy can be increased by lower limb amputation, making it impossible to observe a motor response in the foot coinciding with localization of the nerve. In these cases, ultrasonography can become a technique for nerve localization and determine the success of analgesic strategy, since it allows nerve identification, as well as visualization in real time of the relative position of the needle and catheter with respect to the nerve and the diffusion of the local anesthetic administered. We report the case of a patient with phantom limb pain refractory to conventional treatment, in whom pain control was achieved by ultrasound-guided continuous sciatic block with stimulating catheter.

    Radiation-induced xerostomia can result in the rapid onset and progression of dental caries in head and neck cancer patients. Topically applied fluorides have been successfully used to inhibit the formation of dental caries in this population. However, because intensive daily self-application is required, compliance is an issue. The intraoral fluoride-releasing system (IFRS) containing a sodium fluoride core is a newly developed, sustained-release, passive drug delivery system that does not require patient involvement except for periodic replacement, thus reducing the effect of patient compliance on its effectiveness in dental caries prevention. Twenty-two head and neck cancer patients from U. T. M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, with radiation-induced xerostomia, were entered into a pilot study to contrast the daily home use of a 0.4% stannous fluoride-gel-containing tray (control group) to IFRS (study group) with respect to tolerability and adherence, and to obtain information on relative caries preventive efficacy. Participants were stratified on the basis of radiation exposure and randomly assigned to treatment with either IFRS or stannous fluoride gel. Patients in both groups were fitted with two IFRS retainers and also were instructed to use a 1100-ppm fluoride conventional sodium fluoride dentifrice twice daily. The study was conducted as a single-blinded, parallel-cell trial. Pre-existing carious lesions were restored prior to the beginning of the study. The efficacy variable was determined by the mean number of new or recurrent decayed surfaces. Patients were examined for caries 4, 8, 12, 24, 36, and 48 weeks after initiation of treatment. Reports of adverse reactions were based on information volunteered by patients and that were elicited during interviews. At baseline, the resting and stimulated salivary flow rates (g/5min) were significantly greater in the control group than in the study group (pIFRS groups during the study period. The rate of new or

En los pacientes tratados, hubo mejora en la calidad de vida, nivel de actividad física y FEVI (de 25±9% a 32±8%, p=0,024 a los 6 meses de seguimiento, mientras que esos parámetros no se alteraron en los pacientes del grupo control. CONCLUSIÓN: El bloqueo simpático izquierdo vía toracoscopia es factible y parece ser seguro en pacientes con IC grave. Este estudio inicial sugiere que este procedimiento puede ser un abordaje alternativo eficaz para el bloqueo simpático en el tratamiento de cardiomiopatías dilatadas.BACKGROUND: The level of sympathetic nervous activity is a major determinant of prognosis in patients with heart failure.

En los pacientes que reciben el anticolinesterásico, la transmisión neuromuscular es incrementada por el acumulo de acetilcolina en la placa motora, más que, una vez concluido el efecto de la neostigmina, teoricamente es posible una "recurarización", visto que el agente antagonista no desloca el bloqueador neuromuscular de su local de acción. Fue objetivo de este trabajo cuantificar el grado de parálisis residual en la Sala de Recuperación Pós-Anestésica (SRPA y averiguar si los pacientes que recibieron neostigmina presentan fenómeno de "recurarización" tardia. MÉTODO: Fueron estudiados en la SRPA 119 pacientes adultos que recibieron bloqueadores neuromusculares para diferentes tipos de procedimientos. Al llegar a la SRPA, la transmisión neuromuscular fue cuantificada a través de un monitor por método acelerográfico. Los electrodos estimuladores fueron instalados en el trayecto del nervio ulnar en el puño, y se utilizó la secuencia de 4 estímulos, con corrientes de 30 mA, en la periodicidad de 15 hasta 120 minutos. En esta pesquisa se consideró como residuo de bloqueo neuromuscular una relación T4/T1 abajo de 0,9. En el tiempo de permanencia de la SRPA fueron igualmente registrados los síntomas clínicos sugestivos de bloqueo neuromuscular residual y aferidos los señales vitales.

Uma de suas conseqüências é a paralisia diafragmática. Esta paralisia pode levar, em pacientes com algum grau de disfunção pulmonar prévia, à insuficiência respiratória. A abordagem do plexo braquial por via posterior tem conquistado espaço. O objetivo deste estudo foi determinar a prevalência de paralisia diafragmática, após o bloqueio de plexo braquial interescalênico pela via posterior com o uso de ropivacaína a 0,2%. MÉTODO: Vinte e dois pacientes submetidos ao bloqueio do plexo braquial interescalênico pela via posterior com ropivacaína a 0,2%, foram avaliados no pós-operatório com o objetivo de identificar sinais radiológicos de elevação da cúpula diafragmática sugestivos de paralisia hemidiafragmática. Em 20 pacientes utilizou-se 40 mL de ropivacaína a 0,2%, nestes foi realizada radiografia de tórax em inspiração. Em dois foram utilizados 20 mL de ropivacaína a 0,2%, com subseqüente avaliação fluoroscópica. RESULTADOS: Não houve complicações relacionadas à realização do bloqueio. Em todos os pacientes, o bloqueio foi efetivo e proporcionou boa analgesia pós-operatória. Foi observada elevação da cúpula diafragmática compatível com paralisia hemidiafragmática em todos os casos estudados.

RESULTADOS: La lidocaína aisladamente no cambió la amplitud de las respuestas musculares. Con el uso previo de lidocaína, el bloqueo neuromuscular del rocuronio fue del 82,8% ± 1,91%, con diferencia significativa (p = 0,0079 con relación al grupo con rocuronio aislado (57,8% ± 1,9%. El bloqueo fue parcial y totalmente revertido por la neostigmina y la 4-aminopiridina, respectivamente. La lidocaína no cambió el potencial de membrana y causó un aumento inicial en la frecuencia de los PPTM, seguido de bloqueo. CONCLUSIONES: La lidocaína potenció el bloqueo neuromuscular que el rocuronio produjo. Los cambios del PPTM identifican una acción presináptica. El antagonismo completo de la 4-aminopiridina sugiere un componente presináptico, idea apoyada por

    Radiation therapy had been used with increasing frequency in recent years in the management of oral cancers of advanced ages. In those cases we have to take good care to maintain the oral health of patients undergoing cancerocidal dose of radiation therapy. Using splints, as a tissue displacer, during radiation, we could treat a 99-year-old female patient without serious radiation sequelae, successfully she survived over 100 year-old. As she visited us at 97 year-old, the primary lesions located on the left upper lip, nose, upper and lower gums were diagnosed as multiple verrucous carcinoma histologically. Seventeen months after the first radiotherapy to the lip, nose and upper jaw, we planned again radiotherapy to the recurrent tumor of the lower gum. In order to eliminate and minimize side effects of the second irradiation for the contigenous intraoral organs, we devised a splint to exclude the tongue and upper gum apart from a radiation field. The splint, as tissue displacer, was made of heat-cured acrylic resin and divided into two pieces which were formed like full denture without artificial teeth. They were applied to the upper and lower jaws. The lower one had a large wing to exclude the tongue from irradiation field. After setting of the splint, she had been clenched slightly with an aid of chin cap. Then we could finish successfully the radiotherapy with 10 MV X-ray 40 Gy as scheduled without serious troubles.

Utilizamos el adenocarcinoma mamario murino progestágeno-dependiente C4HD. La administración intratumoral o sistémica de oligodeoxinucleótidos antisentido fosfotiolados al ARNm del IGF-IR (AS[S]ODN inhibió el crecimiento tumoral. El efecto antitumoral fue específico debido a su dosis-dependencia y a la falta de efecto en ratones tratados con el S[S]ODN "sentido". Los tumores obtenidos de ratones tratados con AS[S]ODN mostraron: disminución en la expresión de IGF-IR y en la fosforilación del sustrato del receptor de insulina-1, inhibición de la activación de PI-3K/Akt, p42/p44MAPK y ErbB-2, mientras que la expresión y activación del receptor de progesterona no se afectó. Es la primera demostración que el crecimiento de cáncer de mama puede ser inhibido por la administración in vivo de AS[S]ODN al IGF-IR.We addressed the effect of targeting type I insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF-IR, with antisense strategies in in vivo growth of breast cancer cells. We used C4HD tumors from an experimental model of hormonal carcinogenesis in which medroxyprogesterone acetate induced mammary adenocarcinomas in Balb/c mice. Intratumor or systemic administration of phosphorothiolated antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (AS[S]ODN to IGF-IR mRNA resulted in a significant inhibition of C4HD tumor growth. The antitumor effect was specific since inhibition of tumor growth was dose-dependent and no effect was observed in mice treated with sense S[S]ODN. Tumors from AS[S]ODN-treated mice showed a decrease in IGF-IR expression and in insulin receptor substrate-1 tyrosine phosphorylation. Activation of PI-3K/Akt, p42/p44 MAPK and ErbB-2 was abolished in tumors treated with AS[S]ODN. Progesterone receptor expression or activity remained

Dentre as técnicas de analgesia, o bloqueio do plexo braquial é a que oferece os melhores resultados. O objetivo deste estudo foi determinar qual volume de anestésico local no bloqueio de plexo braquial pela via posterior propicia analgesia pós-operatória para essas operações de maneira mais eficiente. MÉTODO: Noventa pacientes submetidos a bloqueio do plexo braquial pela via posterior foram divididos aleatoriamente em três grupos de 30. Grupo 1 - volume de 20 mL; Grupo 2 - volume de 30 mL; e Grupo 3 - volume de 40 mL. Em todos os grupos, o anestésico usado foi a ropivacaína a 0,375%. O bloqueio foi avaliado por meio da pesquisa de sensibilidade térmica utilizando-se algodão embebido em álcool e a dor pós-operatória foi avaliada seguindo-se uma escala numérica verbal (ENV nas primeiras 24 horas. RESULTADOS: Nos três grupos a analgesia pós-operatória foi similar segundo os parâmetros avaliados; ENV de dor média, tempo até a primeira queixa de dor e consumo de opióides no pós-operatório. No grupo de 20 mL houve um maior consumo de analgésicos não-opióides após a 12ª hora de pós-operatório. Nos grupos de 30 e 40 mL a extensão do bloqueio foi muito maior. CONCLUSÕES: Este estudo mostrou que o bloqueio do plexo braquial pela via posterior é uma técnica que promove analgesia eficaz para intervenções cirúrgicas no ombro.

    Full Text Available Renin-angiotensin system inhibition is a widely accepted approach to initially deal with proteinuria in IgA nephropathy, while the role of immunosuppressants remains controversial in many instances. A prospective, uncontrolled, open-label trial was undertaken in patients with biopsy-proven IgA nephropathy with proteinuria > 0.5 g/day and normal renal function to assess the efficacy of a combination treatment of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors plus angiotensin receptor blockers enalapril valsartan coupled with methylprednisone to decrease proteinuria to levels below 0.5 g/day. Twenty patients were included: Age 37.45 ± 13.26 years (50% male; 7 patients (35% were hypertensive; proteinuria 2.2 ± 1.86 g/day; serum creatinine 1.07 ± 0.29 mg/dl; mean follow-up 60.10 ± 31.47 months. IgA nephropathy was subclassified according to Haas criteria. Twelve patients (60% were class II; seven (35% were class III and one (5% class V. All patients received dual reninangiotensin system blockade as tolerated.

    Full Text Available El síndrome de dolor regional complejo (SDRC se manifiestan con una clínica variada que se caracteriza por dolor, impotencia funcional, trastornos vaso-sudomotores y alteraciones tróficas. Está causado por una lesión primaria o una disfunción del Sistema Nervioso Periférico, estableciéndose dos grupos: SDRC-I que sustituye al término DSR y el SDRCII en lugar del término causalgia. Caso clínico: Varón de 37 años de edad, que tras ser sometido a una artroscopia de hombro comenzó a presentar dolor en el hombro y limitación funcional importante, así como ciertos cambios vasomotores de la misma extremidad, por lo que se diagnosticó de SDRC. El paciente siguió varias pautas de tratamiento analgésico por vía oral, fue sometido a numerosas infiltraciones intraarticulares, se realizaron bloqueos del ganglio estrellado e inició tratamiento rehabilitador. Durante estos meses la evolución clínica del paciente fue tórpida, reapareciendo el dolor en todas las ocasiones y sin presentar mejoría de la movilidad. Se decidió iniciar tratamiento con parches de lidocaína al 5%, con lo que se consiguió controlar el dolor del paciente y finalizó la rehabilitación con recuperación completa. El parche de lidocaína al 5% es un analgésico tópico desarrollado para el tratamiento del dolor neuropático de origen periférico. Está aprobado en EEUU para el tratamiento de la neuralgia postherpética. Sin embargo, se está probando su utilización en otras formas de dolor neuropático, como la neuropatía diabética, el dolor crónico de espalda y el dolor miofascial. El SDRC está asociado con una actividad anormal del sistema nervioso simpático, por lo que el bloqueo simpático mediante anestésicos locales es ampliamente utilizado. En el caso concreto de los parches de lidocaína al 5% se ha publicado un caso de tratamiento de forma efectiva. Este caso es similar al que nosotros describimos, que también fue refractario al tratamiento

    resulta en alta efectividad para el bloqueo axilar del plexo braquial. La técnica de utilizar múltiples estímulos exige más tiempo y mayor experiencia. Este estudio prospectivo compara la latencia y el índice de éxito del bloqueo del plexo braquial usando dos técnicas de localización: transarterial o múltipla estimulación de los nervios. MÉTODO: La lidocaína con epinefrina, 800 mg, fue usada inicialmente para el bloqueo axilar. En el grupo transarterial, 30 mL de lidocaína a 1,6% con epinefrina fueron inyectados profundamente y 20 mL superficialmente a la arteria axilar. En el grupo de múltipla estimulación, tres nervios fueron localizados eléctricamente y bloqueados con volúmenes 20 mL, 20 mL y 10 mL de la solución. El bloqueo fue considerado efectivo cuando la analgesia estaba presente en todos los nervios en la área distal al codo. RESULTADOS: El tiempo de latencia (8,8 ± 2,3 min versus 10,2 ± 2,4 min; p-valor = 0,010 fue significativamente menor en el grupo transarterial. Bloqueos sensitivos completos en los cuatro nervios (mediano, ulnar, radial y musculocutáneo fueron logrados en un 92,5% versus 83,3% en el grupo de múltipla estimulación y acceso transarterial, respectivamente sin diferencia significativa (p-valor = 0,68. El nervio musculocutáneo fue significativamente más fácil de bloquear con el estimulador de nervio periférico (p = 0,034. CONCLUSIONES: La técnica de múltipla estimulación para el bloqueo axilar usando estimulador de nervios (3 inyecciones y la técnica transarterial (2 inyecciones producen resultados semejantes en la calidad del bloqueo. El nervio musculocutáneo es más facilmente bloqueado con el uso del estimulador del nervio periférico. La técnica de múltipla estimulación necesitó menor suplementación del bloqueo y aumentó el tiempo para el inicio de la cirugía.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: High-dose transarterial technique results in highly effective axillary block.

El mecanismo de la interacción se estudió en Biventer cervicis (n = 5 y diafragma de ratón desnervado (n = 5, observándose la influencia de la procainamida en la respuesta a la acetilcolina antes y después de la adición de la procainamida. RESULTADOS: De forma aislada, la procainamida no alteró las respuestas neuromusculares. El bloqueo producido con el Grupo III fue de 68,6% ± 7,1%, con una diferencia significativa (p = 0,0067 con relación al Grupo II (10,4% ± 4,5%, revertido por la 4-aminopiridina. La procainamida ocasionó un aumento en la frecuencia de los PPTM, seguido de bloqueo revertido por la 4-aminopiridina. En Biventer cervicis, la procainamida aumentó la respuesta a la acción de contracción de la acetilcolina, resultado no observado con el diafragma desnervado. CONCLUSIONES: La procainamida potenció el bloqueo producido por el rocuronio. Las alteraciones observadas con PPTM y Biventer cervicis identificaron una acción presináptica. El antagonismo de la 4-aminopiridina sobre el bloqueo de los PPTMs sugirió la desensibilización de los receptores por la procainamida.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES

    Objective We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to explore the effects of noxious coldness and non-noxious warmth on the magnitude of cerebral cortex activation during intraoral stimulation with water. Methods Six male and female subjects were subjected to whole-brain fMRI during the phasic delivery of non-noxious hot (23 ℃) and noxious cold (4 ℃) water intraoral stimulation. A block-design blood oxygenation level-dependent fMRI scan covering the entire brain was also carried out. Results The activated cortical areas were as follows: left pre-/post-central gyrus, insula/ operculum, anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), orbital frontal cortex (OFC), midbrain red nucleus, and thalamus. The activated cortical areas under cold condition were as follows: left occipital lobe, premotor cortex/Brodmann area (BA) 6, right motor language area BA44, lingual gyrus, parietal lobule (BA7, 40), and primary somatosensory cortex SⅠ. Comparisons of the regional cerebral blood flow response magnitude were made among stereotactically concordant brain regions that showed significant responses under the two conditions of this study. Compared with non-noxious warmth, more regions were activated in noxious coldness, and the magnitude of activation in areas produced after non-noxious warm stimulation significantly increased. However, ACC only significantly increased the magnitude of activation under noxious coldness stimulation. Conclusion Results suggested that a similar network of regions was activated common to the perception of pain and nopain produced by either non-noxious warmth or noxious coldness stimulation. Non-noxious warmth also activated more brain regions and significantly increased the response magnitude of cerebral-cortex activation compared with noxious coldness. Noxious coldness stimulation further significantly increased the magnitude of activation in ACC areas compared with noxious warmth.%目的:探索疼痛性冷刺激和非痛温热刺激口腔时

Owing to its disinfectant and fixative (i.e. for preserving pathologic tissue specimens in histopathology properties, it is widely used in dentistry. Although, the terms formaldehyde and formalin are often confused as being identical, these are different as to the concentrations of the primary component i.e. formaldehyde.

    Osseointegrated implants have been well documented for retaining an obturator prosthesis as well as a facial prosthesis. However, when the defect extends to both the facial area and the maxilla, it is difficult to rehabilitate those defects to the satisfaction of the patient, especially in cases where implants cannot be placed on both sites. This case report describes the use of magnets to connect two prostheses, thereby increasing retention and patient comfort.

    Sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma is an extremely rare malignancy of the paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity. It is of unknown etiology, and occurs more commonly in the elderly men, with a routinely shown aggressive behavior and poor prognosis for survival. Radiographically, it looks like severe osteomyelitis. Histopathologic study is essential to confirm diagnosis, and the undifferentiated histologic appearance often necessitates immunohistochemical studies for differentiation from other high-grade neoplasms. We present an 83-year-old man complaining of pain and unilateral swelling on the left side of the face due to a rare malignant tumor of maxillary sinus origin, a sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma. He underwent hemimaxillectomy and radiotherapy, but refused chemotherapy. Maxillary sinus malignancy may be presented with unspecific symptoms mimicking sinusitis or dental pain. Coming across such symptoms, the physician or dentist must consider malignancies as well, and carry out medical and dental workups.

    The purpose of this initial study was to begin development of a new, objective diagnostic instrument that will allow simultaneous quantitation of multiple proteases within a single periodontal pocket using a chemical fiber optic sensor. This approach could potentially be adapted to use specific antibodies and chemiluminescence to detect and quantitate virtually any compound and compare concentrations of different compounds within the same periodontal pocket. The device could also be used to assay secretions in salivary ducts or from a variety of wounds. The applicability is, therefore, not solely limited to dentistry and the device would be important both for clinical diagnostics and as a research tool.

    It has recently been suggested that the mechanism for lifting liquid from a bowl into the oral cavity during lapping is fundamentally different in cats and dogs: cats use adhesion of liquid to the tongue tip while dogs ‘scoop’ with their backwardly curled tongue. High-speed light videos and X-ray videos show that on the contrary, both cats and dogs use the mechanism of adhesion. Liquid is transported through the oral cavity to the oesophagus, against gravity, on the surface of the tongue as i...

Methods Clinical data of 49 patients who were rehospitalizated in 6 to 12 months after PTAS for conventional re-evaluation by digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and TEG, and 6 patients with recurrent ischemic stroke (infarction or transient) after intra-or extra-cerebral stent placement in Jinling Hospital in November 2010 to May 2012 were collected. All patients were assessed the inhibitory rates of arachidonic acid (AA) pathway and adenosine diphosphate (ADP) receptor pathway in platelets by TEG DSA confirmed 14 ISR among 64 lesion vessels treated with stents (ISR group). Potential variables for restenosis and the inhibitory rates of AA pathway and ADP receptor pathway in platelets were analyzed for any predictive power for the ISR with SPSS version 15.0. Results (1) There was significant difference in male-to-female ratio between recurrent stroke group (male/female : 1/5) and non-recurrence group (male/female: 39/4; P 0.05). (2) Compared with non-ISR (control) group, variables in ISR group including age [(58.0 ?12.8) vs (64.6 ?9.8) years], the ratio of diabetes, and the ratio of lesion distributions in intra-and extra-cranial vessels (6/14 vs 7/14, 7/50 vs 43/50) were all significantly different (P < 0.05).

    Introduction Distraction osteogenesis has gained popularity because of the hypothesized concurrent soft-tissue expansion, which is believed to reduce postoperative relapse. Although many articles describe the immediate success of mandibular distraction, little research has been done on its long-term stability. Our goal was to examine the long-term craniofacial changes after distraction. Methods Four hemifacial microsomic patients treated with unilateral mandibular distraction were recalled. Changes in maxillary width and height, occlusal height, ramus height, mandibular length, and chin position were quantified by using the posteroanterior and 45° lateral oblique cephalographs. Predistraction and postdistraction measurements were taken over a 5-year period. The data were analyzed by using paired t tests and ANOVA. Results Maxillary height, ramus height, mandibular length, and chin point deviation all experienced moderate improvement after distraction. Although the growth patterns between the control side and the treated side were comparable until 2 years after removal of the device, the normal side outgrew the affected side thereafter until 5 years after distraction. Conclusions Because of the greater inherent growth potential of the unaffected side, more overcorrection than originally believed is needed to offset the persistent asymmetry in growing hemifacial microsomia patients who undergo unilateral distraction osteogenesis.

    Tooth wear is a multifactorial condition, leading to the loss of dental hard tissues. Many grading scales are available to assess the amount of tooth wear, one of which is the tooth wear evaluation system (TWES). A grading scale can be used chairside, on casts and on photographs. The aim was to test whether the grading scales of the TWES, used on casts and on photographs, resulted in comparable scores. In addition, it was tested whether these scales can be used to assess tooth wear reliably on photographs. Of 75 tooth wear patients, sets of casts and series of photographs were obtained and graded. Comparison of the grading on casts and on photographs revealed equal median values and percentiles for both occlusal/incisal grading and non-occlusal/non-incisal grading. The grading on casts and on photographs showed a high correlation for the occlusal/incisal grading and a low correlation for the non-occlusal/non-incisal grading (Spearman's rho = 0·74 and rho = 0·47; P fair-to-good (ICC = 0·41 to ICC = 0·55) while the intra-examiner reliability was fair-to-good to excellent (ICC = 0·68 to ICC = 0·86) for the occlusal/incisal grading. For the non-occlusal/non-incisal grading, the interexaminer reliability was poor to fair-to-good (ICC = 0·22 to ICC = 0·59), while the intra-examiner reliability was fair-to-good to excellent (ICC = 0·64 to ICC = 0·82). It was concluded that the scores obtained with the grading scales of the TWES on casts and on photographs are comparable. The grading scales can be used in a reliable way on photographs, which is especially the case for occlusal/incisal grading.

    The oral cavity displays an attractive route in drug administration that is not associated with gastric transit and hepatic first-pass metabolism. However, limiting factors for an efficient transit of drugs through the oral mucosa are poor water solubility and permeability. Hence, various strategies exist to enhance solubility. Specifically, nanotechnology has attracted much research interest in the past decade. This study aimed at developing a stable nanosuspension of the model compound phenytoin via wet media milling. The nanosuspensions were carefully characterized regarding hydrodynamic particle sizes, crystallinity, and dissolution characteristics under nonphysiological or physiological (salivary) conditions. The permeability of bulk phenytoin and nanophenytoin through a buccal in vitro and ex vivo model was investigated, and the apparent permeability coefficients were determined. Moreover, cytotoxicity studies were conducted. The addition of Tween 80 as stabilizer resulted in a stable crystalline nanosuspension (330 nm). The solubility characteristics significantly increased under salivary conditions, which further impacted the permeability, as the steady state appearance rate of nanosized phenytoin was 1.4-fold higher. Cytotoxicity studies demonstrated that bulk-/nano-phenytoin exhibited no harmful effects. It can be concluded that the salivary environment (i.e., ionic strength, pH) strongly impacts the solubility and consequently the permeability of crystalline nanosuspensions across the buccal mucosa.

    Full Text Available Neurofibromatosis is one of the phakomatosis (neurodermatoses which are genetically determined hamartomatous or neoplastic diseases of the skin and nervous system. It is not a single entity, but a group of heterogeneous multisystemic neurocutaneous disorders involving both neuroectodermal and mesenchymal derivatives. Plexiform neurofibroma, a histopathologic variant of neurofibroma, is a hallmark of neurofibromatosis type I (NF-I. It is pathognomonic of NF-I and may be the first sign of neurofibromatosis. It often appears within the first 2 years of life or before adolescence and occurs in only 5% of NF-I cases. We present a case of intraosseous plexiform neurofibroma of the maxilla in a 2-year old female, which is rare, along with the oral manifestations and clinicopathological characteristics. Because NF-I is one of the most common genetic disorders and oral manifestations are common, knowledge of the variability of presentation in children is necessary for prompt diagnosis.

    The purpose of this study was to investigate how to detect proximal caries using line profile and validate linear measurements of proximal caries lesions by basic digital manipulation of radiographic images. The X-ray images of control group (15) and caries teeth (15) from patients were used. For each image, the line profile at the proximal caries-susceptible zone was calculated. To evaluate the contrast as a function of line profile to detect proximal caries, a difference coefficient (D) that indicates the relative difference between caries and sound dentin or intact enamel was measured. Mean values of D were 0.0354 {+-} 0.0155 in non-caries and 0.2632 {+-} 0.0982 in caries (p<0.001). The mean values of caries group were higher than non-caries group and there was correlation between proximal dental caries and D. It is demonstrated that the mean value of D from caries group was higher than that of control group. From the result, values of D possess great potentiality as a new detection parameter for proximal dental caries.

  2. A Modified Intraoral Resin Mouthguard to Prevent Self-Mutilations in Lesch-Nyhan Patients

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Giulia Ragazzini

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, described in 1964 by Lesch and Nyhan, is a X-linked recessive disorder, occurring in 1 : 100000 to 1 : 380000 live births. LNS is characterized by a decrease in activity of hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyl transferase, an enzyme involved in purine metabolism, resulting in overproduction of uric acid. Hyperuricemia and neurological features including choreoathetoid spasticity, self-mutilation, and mental retardation clinically characterize this syndrome. In LNS patients the typical feature is loss of tissue from biting themselves with partial or complete amputation of fingers, lips, and tongue. The self-mutilation compares with the eruption of the deciduous teeth. Several drugs trials have been administered to improve self-destructive behavior and invasive treatment approaches, such as extractions of teeth and orthognathic surgery, have been suggested with variable effectiveness. Nowadays prevention is, therefore, the standard of care. The role of dentistry is essential in the management of the self-mutilating behavior, because the teeth represent the main self-injury instrument. This report presents a revision of various therapeutic approaches to manage self-destruction, highlighting the effectiveness of a preventive treatment. It describes a new technique: a resin mouthguard, realized at Gaslini Hospital, to obtain immediate healing of the oral lesions, confirmed in the follow-up period.

    We report quantitative measurements of ten parameters of nutritive sucking behavior in 91 normal full-term infants obtained using a novel device (an Orometer) and a data collection/analytical system (Suck Editor). The sucking parameters assessed include the number of sucks, mean pressure amplitude of sucks, mean frequency of sucks per second, mean suck interval in seconds, sucking amplitude variability, suck interval variability, number of suck bursts, mean number of sucks per suck burst, mean suck burst duration, and mean interburst gap duration. For analyses, test sessions were divided into 4 × 2-min segments. In single-study tests, 36 of 60 possible comparisons of ten parameters over six pairs of 2-min time intervals showed a p value of 0.05 or less. In 15 paired tests in the same infants at different ages, 33 of 50 possible comparisons of ten parameters over five time intervals showed p values of 0.05 or less. Quantification of nutritive sucking is feasible, showing statistically valid results for ten parameters that change during a feed and with age. These findings suggest that further research, based on our approach, may show clinical value in feeding assessment, diagnosis, and clinical management.

    Full Text Available Granulocytic sarcoma (GS is an extremely rare condition involving infiltration of myeloblasts or immature myeloid cells in an extramedullary site. It is also known as chloroma, myeloid sarcoma or extramedullary myeloid tumor. It usually occurs concomitantly with acute myelogenous leukemia or with the onset of blastic phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia. On rare occasions, it evolves even before the onset of leukemias, and when it precedes leukemias without any overt signs, it is referred to as the primary type. Although GSs can involve any body part, localization in the oral cavity is extremely rare. The recognition of this rare primary entity is important because early aggressive chemotherapy can cause regression of the tumor and improve survival. Here, we report a rare case of GS in a nonleukemic 62-year-old female who presented with generalized gingival enlargement involving both maxilla and mandible.

    The interpretation of dental radiographs for the diagnosis of periodontal disease conditions poses several difficulties. These include the inability to adequately reproduce the projection geometry and optical density of the exposures. In order to improve the ability to extract accurate quantitative information from a radiographic survey of periodontal status, a method was developed which provided for consistent reproduction of both geometric and densitometric exposure parameters. This technique employed vertical bitewing projections in holders customized to individual segments of the dentition. A copper stepwedge was designed to provide densitometric standardization, and wire markers were included to permit measurement of angular variation. In a series of 53 paired radiographs, measurement of alveolar crest heights was found to be reproducible within approximately 0.1 mm. This method provided a full mouth radiographic survey using seven films, each complete with internal standards suitable for computer-based image processing.

    Clobazam is a newer 1,5-benzodiazepine used for the treatment of epilepsy. It is better tolerated and less sedating than other benzodiazepines. Absorption of the drug can be impacted by oral fast dissolving dosage form; this may have implications for epilepsy in pediatrics and those having difficulty in swallowing tablets/capsules resulting in improved patient compliance. The purpose of the present investigation was to formulate and optimize clobazam oro-dissolving tablets by direct compression method using response surface methodology (RSM). Oro-dispersible tablets of clobazam were prepared by direct compression method using crospovidone (2-6%) as a superdisintegrant, microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) (20-40%) was used as diluents along with directly compressible mannitol to enhance mouth feel. A 3(2) full factorial design was applied to investigate the combined effect of two formulation variables: amount of crospovidone and MCC over the independent variables disintegration time, wetting time and percent drug release. Disintegration time showed by all formulations was found to be in the range of 24.3-193 s based on evaluation parameters the formulation containing 6% of crospovidone and 30% of MCC showed promising performance against all other formulations. The results demonstrated that the RSM could efficiently be applied for the formulation of clobazam oro-dispersible tablets; therefore, constitute an advance in the management of epileptic attacks.

    Human identification requires comparison of individual traits of a person, depending on the availability and reproduction of antemortem (AM) records. If there is no presumed identity or AM exams are not available for comparison, the production of postmortem (PM) records is impaired. The purpose of this research is to describe and test standards to enable the comparison of antemortem periapical radiographs to images extracted from the manipulation of postmortem CBCT exams in multiple identification simulations in a randomized blind study. In a simulation, 20 CBCT images from dry skulls were used as PM records and 3 periapical radiographs (total of 60) that were randomized and blinded from the first examiner. In each case, an intentional incidence error of 10° was added in four different directions. Three points were selected in the AM radiograph, and the angle, linear measurements and proportion between these distances were collected. The AM data were used to mathematically find similar image geometry on a CBCT maximum intensity projection. Possible identification by superimposition was achieved in all cases, and statistical analysis proved the success in the reproduction of angular and length proportion using CBCT incidence manipulation. Significant reproducibility was also observed on intra- and inter-observer tests. In conclusion, the images extracted from CBCT could be compared to any periapical radiographs by superimposition, providing acceptable evidence to establish human identification. The application of this protocol is suitable for forensic practices with the high level of reproducibility and could be used as PM record when no AM records are available at the time of the exam.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Rapid and dramatic hemodynamic changes which adversely affect the patient may occur during laryngoscopy and intubation. The present study evaluates the effect of oral ivabradine on the hemodynamics during laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation in patients undergoing surgical procedures under general anesthesia. METHODS: A prospective randomized, single blinded study was conducted in 50 ASA- I adult patients undergoing various procedures under general anesthesia. The patients were randomly divided into two groups. Patients in group I (test group (n=25 received oral Ivabradine, 5mg one tab at 6.00pm on the evening before the day of surgery and one 5mg tab one hour before intubation. Patients in group II (control group (n=25 received placebo. Hemodynamic variables were recorded from pre-operative period to 10 minutes after intubation. RESULTS: There was not a very significant increase in the hemodynamic parameters in response to laryngoscopy and intubation in the Test group, when compared to the control group and the minimal raise also returned to baseline immediately within a minute. INTERPRETATIONS AND CONCLUSION: Ivabradine is an extremely useful drug to prevent abnormal increase in heart rate and minimizes the extent of hypertension seen during laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation

    Antecedentes: el schwannoma infraorbitario es un tumor benigno de la vaina nerviosa periférica compuesto por células de Schwann. Suele aparecer entre los 20 y 70 años de edad, asintomático y producir proptosis progresiva e indolora durante su crecimiento. Caso clínico: paciente masculino de 32 años de edad que ingresó al hospital debido a un tumor no doloroso de crecimiento lentamente progresivo sobre el saco lagrimal izquierdo. A la exploración oftalmológica el tumor era de consistencia ahulada y estaba firmemente adherido a las estructuras vecinas. La transiluminación resultó negativa. El ultrasonido modo B mostró un ojo fáquico y un tumor infraorbitario homogéneo, bien circunstrito, con diámetro mayor de 19.7 mm, sin afectación de la vía lagrimal. El ultrasonido modo A mostró una reflectividad media-alta, con escasa vascularidad interna. La tomografía computada mostró un tumor de densidad homogénea, bien circunscrito a la región anterior y por debajo del globo ocular, sin erosión ósea. El tumor se extirpó mediante una incisión subdérmica. El diagnóstico histopatológico fue: schwannoma infraorbitario. Conclusiones: el schwannoma es un tumor benigno, poco frecuente en la órbita. Su diagnóstico definitivo se establece con base en los hallazgos histopatológicos, como: cápsula verdadera, áreas hiper e hipocelulares, engrosamiento y hialinización de las paredes vasculares. Sin esos hallazgos puede confundirse con tumores fusocelulares benignos. Se informa un nuevo caso de schwannoma infraorbitario y se compara con los casos previamente reportados.

  12. Residual Chemosensory Capabilities in Double P2X2/P2X3 Purinergic Receptor Null Mice: Intraoral or Postingestive Detection?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hallock, Robert M.; Tatangelo, Marco; Barrows, Jennell

    2009-01-01

    Mice lacking the purinergic receptors, P2X2 and P2X3 (P2X2/P2X3Dbl−/−), exhibit essentially no tastant-evoked activity in the chorda tympani and glossopharyngeal nerves and substantial loss of tastant-evoked behavior as measured in long-term intake experiments. To assess whether the residual chemically driven behaviors in these P2X2/P2X3Dbl−/− mice were attributable to postingestive detection or oropharyngeal detection of the compounds, we used brief access lickometer tests to assess the behavioral capabilities of the P2X2/P2X3Dbl−/− animals. The P2X2/P2X3Dbl−/− mice showed avoidance to high levels (10 mM quinine and 10–30 mM denatonium benzoate) of classical “bitter”-tasting stimuli in 24-h, 2-bottle preference tests but minimal avoidance of these substances in the lickometer tests, suggesting that the strong avoidance in the intake tests was largely mediated by post-oral chemosensors. Similarly, increases in consumption of 1 M sucrose by P2X2/P2X3Dbl−/− mice in long-term intake tests were not mirrored by increases in consumption of sucrose in lickometer tests, suggesting that sucrose detection in these mice is mediated by postingestive consequences.

    Halitosis, also known as oral malodor, is foul-smelling breath exhaled from the oral cavity. Most of the major compounds contributing to halitosis are volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs). Although halitosis is multifactorial and may involve both oral and non-oral conditions, in approximately 80-90% of all cases it is caused by oral conditions. Oral microorganisms have been correlated with halitosis and VSCs. Halitosis reduction may be obtained by a combination of mechanical treatnents and chemotherapeutical. However,these two treatment approaches exhibit only temporary effects and some undesirable side-effects may occur when they are used in the oral cavity for long periods. Recently, several chemical agents alternatives present a promising approach for both the prevention and treatment of halitosis.%口臭是指呼吸时出现的臭味气体,气体中所舍的主要成分是挥发性硫化物.它由多种因素造成.但约80-90%是来源于口腔内因素.研究表明,口腔微生物与口臭及口气中挥发性硫化物存在密切关系.传统的机械治疗方法和化学治疗方法虽然可以短期内改善口臭状况,但长期疗效不尽如人意.近年来,对化学抗菌剂替代品的研究和开发,成效显著.本文综述了口源性口臭病因及治疗的最新研究进展.

    Purpose. Bone atrophy after tooth loss may leave insufficient bone for implant placement. We compared volumetric changes after autogenous ramus block bone grafting (RBG) or guided bone regeneration (GBR) in horizontally deficient maxilla before implant placement. Materials and Methods. In this retrospective study, volumetric changes at RBG or GBR graft sites were evaluated using cone-beam computed tomography. The primary outcome variable was the volumetric resorption rate. Secondary outcomes were bone gain, graft success, and implant insertion torque. Results. Twenty-four patients (28 grafted sites) were included (GBR, 15; RBG, 13). One patient (RBG) suffered mucosal dehiscence at the recipient site 6 weeks after surgery, which healed spontaneously. Mean volume reduction in the GBR and RBG groups was 12.48 ± 2.67% and 7.20 ± 1.40%, respectively. GBR resulted in significantly more bone resorption than RBG (P 0.05). Conclusions. Both RBG and GBR hard-tissue augmentation techniques provide adequate bone graft volume and stability for implant insertion. However, GBR causes greater resorption at maxillary augmented sites than RBG, which clinicians should consider during treatment planning.

    目的:比较根尖周片与锥形束CT(Cone beam CT,CBCT)成像在牙周骨丧失中的检测与定位作用。方法:图像选自需进行牙周评价的患者牙片,样本共计51个测量位点,包括水平和垂直骨丧失,分别由三名检测者进行评价,主要通过测量骨丧失的线性高度、深度和宽度以及对X射线断层片上的联合骨缺损进行识别鉴定。结果:两种成像方式在定性骨缺损上差异无统计学意义(P>0.05),但在测量釉牙骨质界(CEJ)和牙槽脊顶(AC)间距离时两种成像方式差异有统计学意义(P0.05)。在本研究的39颗牙中,30.8%有联合骨缺损。结论:两种测量方式在测量牙槽脊的高度时有差异,但在测量骨缺失的深度和宽度时结论相似。应用CBCT 成像方式能对颊侧和舌侧/腭侧进行全面分析,并对骨缺失的表面形态进行观察。%To compare periapical radiographs with cone beam CT(CBCT) imaging in detecting and localizing alveolar bone loss by comparing linear measurements of the height, depth and width of the defects and identifying combined bone defects in tomographic images. Methods: The images were selected from a secondary database containing images of patients referred for periodontal evaluation. The sample consisted of 51 sites showing both horizontal and vertical bone loss, assessed by 3 trained examiners. Results: The results showed that there were no statisticaly significant differences between the imaging methods in terms of identification of the patern of bone loss. However, there were differences between the two methods when the distance between the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ) and the alveolar crest (AC) was measured. When the distance between the CEJ and the deepest point and width of the defect were measured, the methods showed no statisticaly significant difference. In this study, 30.8% of the 39 teeth evaluated had combined bone defects. Conclusions: The two methods differ when detecting the height of the alveolar bone crest but present similar views of the depth and width of bone defects. CBCT was the only method that alowed for an analysis of the buccal and lingual/palatal surfaces and an improved visualization of the morphology of the defect.

    In order to evaluate the individual cytogenetic response to radiotherapy and its comparison with the clinical response, the cytokinesis-block micronucleus assay was applied to peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients with cervix cancer undergoing radiotherapy. The cytogenetic data were analysed using a mathematical model to evaluate the attenuation of the cytogenetic effect as a function of the time between a single exposure and blood sampling, estimating a cytogenetic recovery factor (k) that might correlate with the individual radiosensitivity, contributing with radiosensitivity tests of current use but applying a rapid methodology easy to implement in a routine clinical laboratory. Long term clinical observations could confirm the validity of k in expressing predisposition of the subject to develop delayed effects. (author)

    Full Text Available Background: several diseases such as sepsis can affect the ileum. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS, an endotoxin present in the cell wall of gram negative bacteria, is a causative agent of sepsis. Objectives: the aims of this study were: a to investigate the role of mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPKs in the effect of LPS on the acetylcholine-induced contractions of rabbit ileum; and b to study the localization of MAPKs in the ileum. Material and methods: ileal contractility was studied in an organ bath and MAPKs were localized by immunohistochemistry. Results: acetylcholine-induced contractions decreased with LPS. SB203580, SP600125 and U0126 blocked the effect of LPS on the acetylcholine-induced contractions. Phosphorylated p38 and ERK were detected in neurons of myenteric plexus and phosphorylated p38 and JNK in smooth muscle cells of ileum. Conclusion: we can suggest that p38, JNK, and ERK MAPKs are involved in the mechanism of action of LPS in the ileum.Introducción: varias enfermedades como la sepsis pueden afectar al íleon.

    This in situ study aimed to evaluate effects of waiting periods after erosive challenge before toothbrushing on enamel abrasion and nanoindentation hardness. Ten subjects wore intraoral appliances each with a set of 4 bovine enamel blocks. The enamel blocks were subjected to 2 cycles a day for 3 days as follows; intraoral exposure to form acquired pellicle and extraoral erosion followed by either 0, 3, 30 or 60 min intraoral exposure and then brushing, which was performed using an automatic brushing machine. Abrasive loss was assessed by white light interferometry. Nanoindentation was performed to calculate relative hardness. Abrasion and relative hardness were statistically analyzed by ANOVA. Abrasive loss was significantly less in groups exposed to saliva compared with 0 min (p0.05). Relative hardness was statistically higher after intraoral exposure, but no differences existed among any intraoral exposure periods (p>0.05).

El arreglo experimental consiste en la presentación de reportes sobre los efectos positivos y negativos que producen diferentes sustancias al ser consumidas solas o en conjunto con otras. Los participantes del primer grupo estuvieron expuestos a consecuencias de alta magnitud y los del segundo grupo, a consecuencias de baja magnitud. Se evaluó si la atribución de causalidad es consistente con las predicciones del efecto bloqueo mediante dos tipos de pregunta: una pregunta acerca si la sustancia X produce o no el efecto, y una pregunta sobre la probabilidad de que X produzca el efecto. Se examinaron las diferencias en los juicios causales cuando las atribuciones son producto del razonamiento lógico o intuitivo. Si bien no se observó evidencia del efecto bloqueo, se obtuvieron efectos de interacción entre los factores valencia y condición experimental (sustancias bloqueo y control. Se discuten los hallazgos en términos de las diferencias entre el aprendizaje asociativo en humanos y animales no humanos, y en términos de las implicaciones sobre las diferencias teóricas entre el condicionamiento evaluativo y el condicionamiento predictivo.

    Full Text Available A análise quantitativa das AgNORs e a imunomarcação para o PCNA têm sido empregadas de forma independente na avaliação da proliferação celular de vários tumores, e, em muitos casos, têm mostrado correlação positiva. Entretanto poucos trabalhos têm avaliado, em um mesmo corte histológico, a relação entre PCNA e AgNOR. O objetivo deste trabalho foi otimizar a técnica de dupla marcação com a finalidade de se estudar simultaneamente a correlação entre PCNA e AgNOR no carcinoma adenóide cístico (CAC de glândulas salivares menores. Foram selecionados 16 casos de CAC classificados de acordo com o subtipo histológico. A análise quantitativa das AgNORs foi feita por meio de análise de imagens. As AgNORs foram contadas em cem núcleos PCNA positivos e em cem núcleos PCNA negativos. O número médio de AgNOR nos núcleos PCNA positivos foi 2,14 ± 0,77, e, nos núcleos PCNA negativos, 1,97 ± 0,79, entretanto esta diferença não se mostrou estatisticamente significante (p = 0,2537. Nosso trabalho não mostrou correlação entre o número de AgNOR e a imunomarcação para o PCNA em CAC quando estes marcadores foram demonstrados simultaneamente através da dupla marcação. Quanto à técnica, o uso do microondas melhorou a coloração da AgNOR, permitindo uma redução no tempo de incubação com a solução de prata e uma melhor individualização das AgNORs, o que facilitou os procedimentos de contagem.

En el ámbito de la psicología del aprendizaje, pocos fenómenos nos han dado tanta información sobre el carácter selectivo del aprendizaje como el efecto de bloqueo, ampliamente investigado en todo tipo de preparaciones experimentales con animales y humanos. Cuatro décadas después de los primeros estudios sobre este fenómeno, el bloqueo continúa en el centro de todas las discusiones teóricas sobre el aprendizaje, convirtiéndose en el campo de batalla sobre el que se libran los debates entre los partidarios de explicaciones asociativas y los defensores de explicaciones racionales.

    Entre los obstáculos que existen para entender la infección y la respuesta inmune por el HIV-1 está la ausencia de modelos animales que permitan estudiar la patogénesis del SIDA. Modelos murinos han sido desarrollados, pero carecen de replicación productiva a largo término debido a que la glicoproteína de envoltura del HIV-1 no se une al receptor CD4 ni al correceptor
    CCR5 murino, o porque la transcripción directa del promotor es ineficiente debido a una actividad atenuada de Tat (1, que es rescatada por la ciclina T1 humana. La coexpresión de CD4, CCR5 humanas en cultivo de células murinas permite la entrada del virus sin viremia detectable. En animales transgénicos que expresan la ciclina T1, se observa un bloqueo postranscripcional que afecta la replicación.

    The influence of intraoral exposure procedures on the physical characteristics of thermoplastic vacuum-formed retainers (VFRs) is still unclear. The effects of thermoforming and intraoral use on the molecular, chemical, morphological, and mechanical properties of thermoplastic VFRs were investigated. VFRs with a 0.8-mm-thick thermoplastic PETG sheet acquired from 48 patients were investigated with two aging procedures, including vacuum forming and intraoral exposure, for 2-week and 6-month. Eight evaluating sites for thermoplastic VFRs were assessed with seven analytical techniques. LM, SEM, and AFM microscopic findings showed that the surface characteristics increased with increasing in vivo exposure time (a four-fold increase) and varied depending on the sites evaluated (an occlusal surface). Raman and EDX spectroscopic findings showed that aging procedures led to a significant change in the molecular composition of VFRs, leading to a decrease in the composition rate of carbon (C) and the presence of silicon (Si), phosphorus (P), and calcium (Ca). Compressive strength and tensile tests showed that aging procedures led to a significant increase (PThermoforming led to a smoother surface and no crystallization of PETG sheets. Intraoral exposure accelerated changes in surface morphology, tensile strength, and elastic modulus of VFRs. This change was site-specific and enhanced with an increase in intraoral exposure time. Therefore, thermoforming and in vivo oral exposure procedures led to the molecular, morphological, and mechanical properties of thermoplastic VFRs.

    Objective To investigate the changes of neuronal activation in taste-related nuclei following intraoral taste stimulation with binary taste mixtures of sucrose and NaCl. Methods Neuronal activation in response to intraoral taste stimulation with 0.5 mol*L-1 sucrose, 0.3 mol*L-1 NaCl, sucrose+NaCl mixture and distilled water was evaluated in taste-related nuclei by using c-Fos-like immunoreactivity(c-FLI) in the rats deprived of water overnight. Results The consumption of sucrose+NaCl mixture was lower than that of sucrose solution. Intraoral sucrose or NaCl stimulation induced more c-FLI than distilled water in the external lateral subnucleus of the rostral parabrachial nucleus (PBN), but the c-FLI induced by intraoral sucrose+NaCl mixture stimulation was less than that induced by sucrose solution in this subnucleus. Compared with distilled water, the intraoral sucrose or sucrose+NaCl mixture stimulation induced more c-FLI in the central amygdala. ConclusionThese results suggest that salty taste has a suppressive effect on the neuronal activations induced by sweet taste in the external lateral subnucleus of rostral PBN in rats.

    Gag reflex is a physiologic mechanism that promotes contraction of the muscles of the tongue and pharyngeal walls. Different factors, including intraoral radiographic films and sensors, may trigger this reflex. Patients with severe gag reflex may not be able to tolerate the presence of intraoral radiographic films or sensors during root canal therapy (RCT). This factor may prevent an appropriate intraoral radiograph, which is important in RCT. Different approaches have been used to facilitate dental procedures in patients suffering from severe gag reflex. The use of an extraoral radiographic technique is an alternative method to obtain working length confirmation in patients with severe gag reflex. In this report of 2 cases, the use of an extraoral radiographic technique as an alternative approach during RCT in patients with severe gag reflex associated with phobic behavior and trismus was successfully demonstrated.

    2010-10-01

    The most widely used method for controlling pain during dental procedures is the intraoral administration of local anesthetics in close proximity to a specific nerve or fiber to obtund nerve conduction. The most commonly anesthetized nerves in dentistry are branches or nerve trunks associated with the maxillary and mandibular divisions of the trigeminal nerve (cranial nerve V). However, other nerves may be inadvertently affected by intraoral local anesthesia injections, resulting in anesthetic complications of structures far from the oral cavity. Practitioners should be aware of potential ocular complications following intraoral injections in dentistry. These complications include oculomotor paralysis and vision loss. The knowledge of these conditions and their potential cause should alert the dentist to the importance of appropriate injection techniques and an understanding of management protocol.

    Mucosal melanoma of the oral cavity is a rare but highly aggressive neoplasm. However, the clinicians need to be aware of the other and more frequent etiologies of intraoral pigmentation, such as amalgam tattoos. As amalgam has been extensively used for dental restorations and can cause pigmentations in the oral mucosa, this is a differential diagnosis not to be forgotten. We describe the characteristics of these two phenomena and present a case vignette illustrating the differential diagnostic issues. Other causes of intraoral pigmentation are summarized.

    Prior to initiating any treatment, it is necessary to visualize the desired outcomes. It then becomes possible to formulate the steps required to achieve this result. Digital Smile Design (DSD) utilizes patient input and information gathered through diagnostic procedures to create an esthetic treatment scheme. In the case presented here, the NYUCD Esthetic Evaluation Form, intraoral and extraoral photographs, mounted diagnostic casts, physical examination, and radiographs were the diagnostic modalities. The gathered information served as a starting point for a wax-up and intraoral mock-up. This case report demonstrates how the DSD served as a template for crown lengthening procedures and design of the final porcelain veneer restorations.

    Full Text Available Já está claramente estabelecido, que a inibição crônica da síntese de óxido nítrico resulta em hipertensão sustentada, remodelamento cardíaco e fibrose. Além disso, resultados de nosso grupo demonstraram que a suplementação oral com L-arginina foi capaz de aumentar a resistência da musculatura esquelética a fadiga muscular localizada em humanos. O tratamento experimental de ratos com L-NAME é um dos modelos mais comumente utilizados para se induzir hipertensão. A resposta compensatória esperada contra o aumento da resistência vascular sistêmica seria a hipertrofia ventricular esquerda; entretanto, isso tem sido um ponto bastante controverso na literatura. O objetivo do presente estudo foi verificar os efeitos da inibição do óxido nítrico pela administração oral de L-NAME sobre o tecido cardíaco de ratos e a possível reversão pela L-arginina. Foram utilizados 30 ratos Wistar machos (250-350g, mantidos em condições de temperatura, luz e umidade controlada, e com água e comida ad libitum. Ao final de quatro semanas, os animais foram sacrificados por inalação de CO2 e os corações foram removidos e imediatamente dissecados, sendo separados átrios e ventrículos, obtendo-se os pesos total e parcial. Os valores foram corrigidos em função do peso corporal obtido na última semana de tratamento e expressos como índice cardíaco. O L-NAME foi capaz de induzir hipertensão e aumento significativo do duplo produto, porém sem resultados significativos sobre os pesos cardíacos, não sendo observada hipertrofia do órgão. Os aumentos de pressão arterial e duplo produto foram revertidos pela administração concomitante de arginina, de maneira dependente da dose. Dados preliminares não publicados demonstraram a reversão da fibrose cardíaca induzida pelo L-NAME, nos animais que receberam tratamento com arginina. Podemos concluir que a arginina pode vir a ser uma ferramenta valiosa na prevenção da hipertensão e do remodelamento cardíaco, principalmente nos casos relacionados a disfunções vasculares e, ainda, produzindo efeitos adicionais em atividades atléticas.Está claramente establecido que la inhibición crónica de la síntesis de óxido nítrico resulta en hipertensión sustentada, remodelación cardiaca y fibrosis.

La respuesta compensatoria esperada contra el aumento de la resistencia vascular sistémica sería la hipertrofia ventricular izquierda, sin embargo, esto ha sido un punto bastante controversial en la literatura. El objetivo del presente estudio ha sido el de verificar los efectos de la inhibición del óxido nítrico por la administración oral de L-NAME sobre el tejido cardiaco de ratones, y la posible reversión por la L-arginina. Fueron utilizados 30 ratones Wistar machos (250-350g, mantenidos en condiciones de temperatura, luz y humedad controlada, y con agua y comida "ad libitum". Al final de 4 semanas, los animales fueron sacrificados por inhalación de CO2 y los corazones fueron removidos e inmediatamente disecados, siendo separados atrios y ventrículos, obteniéndose los pesos total y parcial. Los valores fueron corregidos en función del peso corporal obtenido en la última semana de tratamiento y expresados como índice cardiaco. El L-NAME fue capaz de inducir hipertensión y aumento significativo del doble producto, pero sin resultados significativos sobre los pesos cardiacos, no siendo observada hipertrofia del órgano. Los aumentos de presión arterial y el doble producto fueron revertidos por la administración concomitante de arginina, de manera dependiente de la dosis. Datos preliminares no publicados demostraron la reversión de fibrosis cardiaca inducida por L-NAME, en los animales que recibieron tratamiento con arginina. Podemos entonces concluir que la arginina puede venir a ser una herramienta valiosa en la prevención de la hipertensión y de la remodelación cardiaca, principalmente en los casos relacionados a las disfunciones vasculares, y más aún, produciendo efectos adicionales en actividades atléticas.It has been clearly established that chronic inhibition of nitric oxide synthesis results in a sustained increase in blood pressure, cardiac remodeling and fibrosis. It was also demonstrated by our group that arginine supplementation was able to increase the skeletal muscle resistance to fatigue, but its mechanism remains uncertain. The experimental treatment of rats with L-NAME is one of the most common models employed to induce hypertension. The expected compensatory response against increases in systemic vascular resistance would be ventricular hypertrophy. However, the presence of cardiac hypertrophy still controversial. The aim of the present study was to verify the effects of nitric oxide inhibition through oral L-NAME administration on the cardiac tissue of rats, and the possible reversion by L-arginine. Thirty male Wistar rats (250-350 g were kept in controlled conditions of temperature, light, humidity, with water and food "ad libitum". At the end of 4 weeks or treatments the animals were sacrificed by CO2 inhalation and the hearts were removed. Soon after, the hearts were dissected, to separate atria and ventricules, obtaining the total heart weight. After the retreat of the right ventricule, the remaining part was weighed, to obtain the left ventricular weight (LVW, mg; the difference between the total heart weight and the LVW was considered the right ventricular weight (RVW, mg. These values were corrected in function of the corporal weight obtained in the last week of treatment. L-NAME was able to induced hypertension and increases in double product but without any heart hypertrophy. The increase arterial pressure and double product were reversed by L-arginine administration in a dose-dependent way. Preliminary findings demonstrated a reversion of heart fibroses induced by L-NAME, after arginine treatment. We concluded that arginine may constitute a valuable tool in preventing hypertension and cardiac remodeling mainly related to vascular dysfunctions and maybe also in athletic activities.

    En agosto de 2013, los campesinos colombianos lograron sorprender y despertar a todo el país. A través de varias semanas de paro, bloqueos y manifestaciones obligaron la sociedad a volver la mirada hacia el campo, sus actores, sus problemáticas y sus productos. Frente a una inicial actitud “negacionista” por parte del Presidente Santos, el movimiento campesino supo mantenerse firme y fortalecer, cada día más, sus acciones y los vínculos con otros gremios y articulaciones urbanas.

    En la glándula mamaria de ratones hembra, como en la de machos, existe una población de Células Madre (MaSCs), que son capaces de regenerar una glándula mamaria completa cuando se trasplantan en estromas mamarios de hembras, independientemente de que las receptoras sean prepúberes o adultas. Sin embargo, el contexto hormonal de los machos (andrógenos) no permite la regeneración de glándulas mamarias mediante trasplantes, y además, este contexto es el responsable del bloqueo en la diferenciaci...

  11. Aminoacidopatías congénitas: Fenilcetonuria

    OpenAIRE

    Corral Riocerezo, Lucía

    2016-01-01

    La fenilcetonuria (PKU) es un error congénito del metabolismo de la fenilalanina, causado por la deficiencia de un enzima, la fenilalanina hidroxilasa (PAH), o por un error del cofactor que participa en la reacción, la tetrahidrobiopterina (BH4). La PAH es necesaria para convertir el aminoácido (aa) esencial fenilalanina (Phe) en tirosina. Cuando se produce el bloqueo de esta reacción, la fenilalanina se degrada por una vía catabólica alternativa provocando la acumulación de compuestos neurot...
