    , Escalonada e Seriada. Foram selecionados 45 molares inferiores humanos extraídos, com curvaturas radiculares superiores a 25°, que foram divididos em três grupos para cada técnica estudada e subdivididos em três subgrupos de acordo com a posição da curvatura ao longo da raiz: cervical, mediana ou apical. Após cirurgia de acesso e odontometria, os canais foram preenchidos com contraste radiológico de sulfato de Bário a 100% e os dentes então foram radiografados por um sistema de radiografia digital direta, utilizando-se um aparato capaz de manter as amostras na mesma posição espacial nas diferentes tomadas radiográficas. Após a realização das técnicas endodônticas supracitadas, os dentes foram novamente preenchidos com o sulfato de Bário e radiografados nas mesmas condições anteriores. As imagens digitais pré e pós-operatórias foram então analisadas em dois programas computadorizados, o AutoCAD 2004 e o CorelDraw 10, para verificar, respectivamente, as áreas e as alterações horizontais ocorridas nas paredes internas e externas dos canais radiculares. Apesar de não ter havido diferenças significantes entre as técnicas na análise estatística, em uma análise descritiva a técnica do Preparo Progressivo mostrou-se mais regular, uniforme e eficaz.

    Ten human uniradicular teeth had their crown removed along the cement-enamel junction and right away a proper chemical-surgical preparation of the radicular canals was done; the roots were longitudinally sectioned in order to allow the irradiation of the surfaces of the root canals wall dentine. The hemi-roots were separated in two groups: group I (control), with four hemi-roots, not irradiated; and group II, with 16 hemi-roots, subdivided in four sub-groups submitted to the following exposition time: 0,02 s; 0,05 s; 0,1 s and 0,5 s. A copper vapour laser was used with a 510,6 nm wavelength, total average power of 11 W in green and yellow emissions; average power of 6,5 W in green emission; pulse repetition rate of 16.000 Hz and pulse duration of 30 ns. The pulse energy (green line) is 0,4 mJ and the peak power 13,5 W. The laser cavity is unstable type (R{sub 1}=3.900 mm and R{sub 2}-250 mm). The focusing have focal length lens f{sub 1}=250 mm and f{sub 2}=150 mm. The beam quality is of the M{sup 2}=5. The results obtained by scanning electron microscopy analysis showed the appearance of a cavity in the region of the laser beam incidence in the edges of this cavity, dentin was melt and resolidified presenting also cracks due to heat diffusion. Based on these results, we concluded that the size of the cavity formed in the dentin is directly proportional to the rate of exposure and, the more laser emission in the same area, more damage in the root canals wall dentin occurs. More studies need to be done with different exposition's time in order to obtain a safety protocol that does not cause injury in dental and support tissue. (author)

    Full Text Available In the endodontic treatment of root canals with necrotic pulps associated with periapical radiolucent areas, one of the main objectives of treatment consists in eliminating the microorganisms spread throughout the ramifications of the root canal system. The scope of this study was to evaluate the antiseptic efficacy of biomechanical preparation and two calcium hydroxide-based pastes, in dogs' teeth with experimentally induced chronic periapical lesions. After initial microbiological sampling, instrumentation of the root canals was undertaken using the conventional technique, using K type files used in conjunction with a solution of 5.25% sodium hypochlorite. After ninety-six hours, further microbiological sampling was undertaken and Calen/CPMC or Calasept pastes were applied for 15 and 30 days. Ninety six hours after the removal of the medication, the third microbiological sampling was undertaken and finally histomicrobiological analysis followed using Brown & Brenn staining. The results were analyzed using the Kruskall-Wallis test, with a level of significance established at 5% (p0.05, characterized by an elevated incidence of cocci, bacilli and filaments, predominantly gram-positive, in root canals, secondary canals and accessories, apical cementoplasts and dentinal tubules, but with a low incidence of microorganisms in areas of cementum resorption and the periapical lesion. The biomechanical preparation and intracanal dressing based on calcium hydroxide were important in the antisepsis of the root canal; however, both procedures did not produce significant changes in the microbiological aspects of the root canal system.No tratamento endodôntico dos canais radiculares com polpa necrótica associados à áreas radiolúcidas periapicais, um dos principais objetivos consiste em eliminar os microrganismos situados em todo o sistema de ramificações.

    Full Text Available Realizou-se um estudo anatômico em dentes do Cebus apella, para análise da anatomia interna do canal radicular dessa espécie, normatizando seu uso como modelo experimental. Utilizaram-se doze animais adultos. Após a remoção do tecido orgânico, os dentes foram removidos, seccionados e fotografados, sendo analisados com um estereomicroscópio. Os resultados mostraram que os dentes apresentaram características semelhantes às dos seres humanos, mas com algumas peculiaridades, tais como: a anatomia do canal radicular variou de oval para circular; nos caninos inferiores, os canais são semelhantes a um rim, o que reflete o contorno externo da raiz; nos molares superiores, os canais mesiobucal e distobucal são ovais, seguindo o contorno geral do dente. Os autores concluem que esta espécie pode ser utilizada como modelo em pesquisas odontológicas, principalmente em estudos do tratamento do sistema de canal radicular.

    PALAVRAS-CHAVES: Anatomia, dentes, Cebus apella. An anatomic study of Cebus apella root teeth was performed to analyze the internal anatomy of permanent dentition, normalizing its use as experimental model endodontic research. Twelve adult animals were used in this study. After the removal of the organic tissue, the all teeth were removed, sectioned, analyzed and photographed with a stereomicroscope. The results showed that the anatomy of root canal of this species are similar to human dental anatomy, considering the shape, pathway and number of canals, but with some peculiarities, such as: the root canal anatomy varied from oval to circular; in the lower canines, the canals are resembled a kidney, reflecting the outside contour of the root; in the upper molars, the mesiobuccal and distobuccal canals are oval, following the general contour of the tooth. The authors conclude that this primate can be applied as models for study of root canal treatment in human beings, in special the upper central and lateral incisors

    Full Text Available Evidências significativas sugerem a inter-relação existente entre a região de furca de dentes multirradiculados com o desenvolvimento de lesões endo-periodontais, principalmente, quando da presença do canal cavo-inter-radicular. Com o objetivo de compreender os mecanismos envolvidos na etiopatogenia de tais doenças periodontais, assim como propiciar o diagnóstico e o tratamento precoces, buscou-se melhor caracterizar essa região dando ênfase à morfologia do assoalho da câmara pulpar. Para este estudo foram selecionados 42 molares humanos extraídos, sendo 21 superiores e 21 inferiores. Após realizadas as aberturas coronárias e localizadas as entradas dos canais radiculares, os dentes tiveram parte das porções coronária e radicular cortada perpendicularmente ao longo do seu eixo, com o auxílio de disco de carburundum. Depois de uma criteriosa limpeza dos espécimes, esses foram secos em câmara de ponto crítico, sendo, a seguir, preparados para análise em microscópio eletrônico de varredura (Philips®, modelo XL30, Holanda. Os dados foram analisados através do Teste U de Mann- Whitney e do teste Qui-quadrado.

    Full Text Available Variations in the internal anatomy of root canals may interfere with the success of root canal because tissue remnants may remain in the isthmus, re-entrances and ramifications of flattened root canals making instrumentation more difficult. Successful root canal treatment depends fundamentally on shaping, cleaning, disinfection and obturation. This study verified the quality of cleaning of ProFile .04 rotary technique associated with different irrigating solutions: 0.5% sodium hypochlorite, calcium hydroxide + Tergentol and 2% chlorhexidine in canals with mesio-distal flattening. Twelve human mandibular central incisors were randomly divided into 3 groups and instrumented up to ProFile 0.4 #35 file after cervical preparation, and processed histologically. After optical microscopic evaluation, statistical analysis showed that the percentage of cleaning of the three irrigating solutions was statistically different. Two-by-two comparisons classified the irrigating solutions in increasing order of cleaning: calcium hydroxide + Tergentol As variações da anatomia interna de cada canal radicular podem interferir no sucesso da terapêutica endodôntica devido ao fato de que em canais radiculares achatados, pode persistir remanescentes teciduais em istmos, reentrâncias e ramificações dificultando a execução das técnicas de instrumentação. O sucesso do tratamento dos canais radiculares depende fundamentalmente do preparo da forma, limpeza, desinfecção e obturação. Poucos trabalhos avaliaram a limpeza dos canais radiculares após a instrumentação rotatória. O presente trabalho verificou a qualidade de limpeza dos canais radiculares, por meio da microscopia óptica, promovida pela técnica de instrumentação rotatória associada ao hipoclorito de sódio 0,5%, HCT20 e clorexidina, em canais achatados no sentido mésio-distal.

    Full Text Available A escolha do canal de distribuição é uma das principais decisões inseridas na Administração de Marketing de uma empresa, já que isso interfere significativamente no seu sucesso. Por outro lado, o relacionamento entre a empresa e os seus distribuidores deve ser mediado por um sistema de incentivos que desperte o interesse dos distribuidores em vender a marca do fabricante. Este estudo, caracterizado como uma pesquisa aplicada, tem como objetivo analisar as variáveis que motivam os distribuidores a negociarem os produtos de uma indústria de sorvetes e gelados sediada em João Pessoa. Como método para levantamento de dados utilizou-se uma pesquisa de campo aplicada ao gestor da empresa e a uma amostra de 66 de seus participantes de canal. Os resultados indicaram que os principais critérios utilizados pelo gestor para selecionar os membros de canal foram: porte, localização, instalações físicas e abertura do participante ao fortalecimento da marca, sendo a maioria varejistas de pequeno porte. Quanto à motivação, junto ao poder legitimado, as recompensas do tipo entrega sem atrasos e imagem da marca são os critérios mais usados pelo fabricante para motivar seus distribuidores. Os resultados sugerem a necessidade de ampliação de tipos de membros de canal comerciais entre fabricante e distribuidor.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo investigar a gestão de canais múltiplos de distribuição realizada por relevantes indústrias brasileiras de alimentos. Para tal, foi conduzido estudo exploratório em dois estágios: referindo-se à condução de entrevistas a distância com gestores da área de suprimentos (junto a seis empresas, seguidas de entrevistas presenciais (em duas empresas selecionadas da amostra inicial. Independentemente do porte ou segmento de atuação, o estudo evidencia a busca por parte do elo processador de distribuir seus produtos por meio da combinação de dois formatos de varejo (grande e pequeno/médio com, ao menos, mais um canal, com tendência positiva ao emprego de formatos alternativos, entre os quais o marketing direto. Corroborando a premissa central do estudo, a percepção dos entrevistados é que a gestão de múltiplos canais revela-se estratégica para o elo processador ao permitir atenuar o maior poder comparativo do grande varejo, dada a possibilidade de maior cobertura de mercado, customização nas vendas e melhor atendimento dos anseios dos consumidores.

    Full Text Available This in vivo study evaluated the sealing ability of a resin-based sealer (AH Plus and a zinc oxide-eugenol sealer (Endofill in dogs' teeth, exposed to the oral environment for 45 and 90 days. Forty eight lower incisors from 8 dogs were endodonticaly treated. A stratified randomization determined the sealer use in each root canal. All canals were filled using the lateral condensation technique. The excess filling material at the cervical portion of the root canal was sectioned, leaving a 10-mm obturation length inside the canal. Teeth were provisionally sealed with glass ionomer cement for 24 h and the canals were exposed to the oral environment for either 45 or 90 days. Therefore, the experimental groups were as follows: A45- AH Plus for 45 days; A90- AH Plus for 90 days; E45- Endofill for 45 days; and E90- Endofill for 90 days (n=12. After the experimental period, the dogs were killed and the lower jaw was removed. The incisors were extracted and the roots were covered with two coats of nail varnish. The teeth were immersed in India ink for 96 h and submitted to diaphanization. Dye leakage (in mm was measured using stereomicroscopy (10x magnification.

Forty-eight single-rooted teeth were used in this study. The canals were instrumented by the step-back technique and the roots were randomly divided into six equal experimental groups (n = 8 according to the irrigating agent tested. A total of 30 µL of each solution was pipetted into the root canal and allowed to set undisturbed for 5 minutes. After this time, 15 µL of the solutions were removed from each canal using a Hamilton syringe and placed in a container with 5 mL of deionised water. The µg/mL concentration of calcium ion (Ca2+ extracted from the root canal samples was determined using inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES. Data were analysed by means of the Kruskal-Wallis and Mood's median tests. Citric acid solution at pH 1.0 removed more calcium than at pH 7.4 and than the other chelating solutions tested (p 0.05.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the distribution of microorganisms in the root canal system (RCS and periapical lesions of dogs' teeth after rotary instrumentation and placement of different calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH2]-based intracanal dressings. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Chronic periapical lesions were experimentally induced in 80 premolar roots of four dogs. Instrumentation was undertaken using the ProFile rotary system and irrigation with 5.25% sodium hypochlorite. The following Ca(OH2-based pastes were applied for 21 days: group 1 - Calen (n=18; group 2 - Calen+CPMC (n=20; group 3 - Ca(OH2 p.a. + anaesthetic solution (n=16 and group 4 - Ca(OH2 p.a.+ 2% chlorhexidine digluconate (n=18. Eight root canals without endodontic treatment constituted the control group. Histological sections were obtained and stained with Brown & Brenn staining technique to evaluate the presence of microorganisms in the main root canal, ramifications of the apical delta and secondary canals, apical cementoplasts, dentinal tubules, areas of cemental resorption and periapical lesions. The results were analyzed statistically by the Mann-Whitney U test (p0.05. The percentage of RCS sites containing microorganisms in groups 1, 2, 3, 4 and control were: 67.6%, 62.5%, 78.2%, 62.0% and 87.6%, respectively. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, the histomicrobiological analysis showed that the rotary instrumentation and the different calcium hydroxide pastes employed did not effectively eliminate the infection from the RCS and periapical lesions. However, several bacteria seen in the histological sections were probably dead or were inactivated by the biomechanical preparation and calcium hydroxide-based intracanal dressing.OBJETIVO: Neste estudo avaliou-se a distribuição dos microrganismos no sistema de canais radiculares (SCR e região periapical (RP de cães após instrumentação automatizada e utilização de pastas à base de hidróxido de cálcio CaO(H2

    Full Text Available O objetivo desse trabalho foi contribuir com o estudo anatômico, morfométrico, ultraestrutural e propriedades físicas dos dentes permanentes do primata Sapajus apella. Para tal, foram utilizados 10 animais adultos e machos. Os dentes foram avaliados quanto ao seu comprimento e quanto à anatomia radicular externa e interna considerando número de raízes e canais, forma e direção radicular e forma do canal, assim como análise da densidade e diâmetro tubular do canal radicular, composição e microdureza dentinária. A anatomia radicular desse primata apresentou especificidades, como o número de raízes do segundo pré-molar superior e a presença do terceiro pré-molar. Quanto à densidade e o diâmetro dos túbulos dentinários, observou-se uma diminuição do número e diâmetro de túbulos ao longo do canal radicular, havendo diferença estatisticamente significante ao se comparar o terço apical com as regiões cervical e média, padrão de densidade e tamanho semelhantes a dentes humanos. Semelhanças também foram encontradas com dentes humanos quando comparados os valores de microdureza e proporção de elementos químicos encontrados na dentina radicular.

    Full Text Available As cadeias de suprimentos de hortaliças enfrentam, nos dias atuais, o desafio de alinhar a demanda e a oferta de produtos de maneira eficiente. Do lado da demanda, clientes exigentes, interessados em produtos com qualidade e sempre disponíveis nos pontos de venda. Do lado da oferta, a dificuldade em garantir o produto certo, na hora certa e no local adequado. Percebendo a dificuldade em ligar demanda e oferta, por problemas relacionados, principalmente, à logística e à qualidade, as grandes redes de auto-serviço têm abandonado o sistema tradicional de suprimento de produtos hortícolas, por meio das Centrais Estaduais de Abastecimento Sociedade Anônima (CEASA, e criado centrais próprias de compras onde a aquisição dos produtos é feita diretamente de produtores rurais e atacadistas especializados. No entanto, este novo canal deve ser examinado com cuidado já que, sob certas circunstâncias, pode representar ameaças e oportunidades para o produtor rural. Assim, propõe-se uma análise da competitividade dos principais canais de distribuição de hortaliças, em especial, do tomate in natura, sob a ótica da gestão da cadeia de suprimentos. De forma a alcançar esse objetivo, foi utilizado um método que consiste em estabelecer direcionadores de competitividade para todos os elos da cadeia. Conhecendo as vantagens e limitações de cada canal de distribuição, é possível estudar formas de torná-los mais eficientes. Os resultados, obtidos por meio de pesquisa de campo com os agentes dos canais, demonstram que as cadeias de suprimentos, que optam pela distribuição por meio das centrais de compras de grandes redes de auto-serviço, apresentam melhor desempenho competitivo do que a distribuição por meio das CEASAs. No entanto, o desempenho superior não se mostra sustentável à medida que o diferencial de poder entre os varejistas e os produtores rurais aumenta a rivalidade vertical e permite comportamentos conflitantes e

MATERIAL AND METHODS: twenty root canals of human maxillary and mandibular first molars were employed, which were divided into 2 groups: group A (10 teeth was instrumented with the K3 system, and group B (10 teeth with the ProTaper system. Evaluation of deviation was performed by double radiographic exposure. Radiographs were achieved before and after instrumentation, with 0.3-second, thus allowing superimposition of images. Three-dimensional computerized tomograph was performed in 3 specimens in each group, as an additional means to evaluate the apical deviation. RESULTS: were evaluated by the parametric test Student-Newman-Keuls at 5%, which did not reveal significance between groups concerning the apical deviation. The results of computerized tomograph images demonstrated that the larger deviation of the root canal occurred at the distolingual area for both systems. CONCLUSIONS: both techniques produced a mild apical deviation. Computerized microtomography was shown to be accurate for experimental endodontics studies.OBJETIVOS: avaliar o desvio apical de canais radiculares curvos instrumentados pelos sistemas K3 e ProTaper.

The study evaluated 1,470 endodontic treatments performed by final year undergraduate students at the Dental School of Piracicaba, State University of Campinas (UNICAMP, SP, Brazil, during the period from 1998 to 2000. The X-rays taken during treatment were evaluated in order to establish the presence of ramifications of the root canal system. The initial X-ray did not show the presence of any canal ramifications. After filling, X-rays showed only 3 ramification types: 3.06% of lateral canals, 2.99% of apical deltas, and 0.1% of interradicular canals. The maxillary premolars showed the highest number of lateral canals (n = 13, followed by mandibular premolars (n = 10 and maxillary incisors (n = 10. Apical deltas were mostly found in mandibular molars (n = 14, followed by maxillary incisors (n = 9. Only mandibular molars had interradicular canals. The detection of ramifications increased with the use of EDTA.

    Full Text Available The problem of finding an ideal material for filling root canals of deciduous teeth has not been solved yet. This fact led to the development of an experiment to histologically analyze the periapical tissue reaction to 3 root canal filling materials. Eighty root canals of dog deciduous anterior teeth from 6 animals, 60 days old, were used in this study. After biomechanical preparation, the root canals were filled with the following materials: slowly resorbable Maisto paste, Sealer 26 with iodoform, L&C paste (calcium hydroxide with olive oil and as a control group, canals that were prepared but not filled. At thirty days after the treatment the animals were killed and the teeth prepared for histological analysis. The materials were ranked statistically from the best to the worst as follows: a - Maisto paste, b - Sealer 26 with iodoform, c - control group, d - L&C paste. There was significant difference (p = 0.01 only when the results of the other groups were compared with the L&C paste group. It was also observed that L&C paste was not biologically compatible and that the other materials were biocompatible but their resorption was not at the same rate as that of the deciduous teeth roots.O objetivo de encontrar um material ideal para obturar canais radiculares de dentes decíduos ainda não foi alcançado.

    Full Text Available The development of the root system on five varieties of rice grown under upland conditions, has been studied. It has been found, with the rice varieties used and under the conditions tested, that 66 percent of the roots occured within 5 centimeters and 95 percent within 15 centimeters of the surface of the ground. A few roots were found to reach a depth of 1 meter, and occasionally to a depth of 1.35 meter. The Iguape-catete variety of rice showed a tendency to develop a somewhat deeper root system than the other varieties studied. Recognition of the fact that development of the roots of the rice plant is largely within the plowed layer of soil, suggests that deep plowing prior to planting with frequent and shallow cultivation following planting, to eliminate weed competition, would be desirable.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: o presente estudo verificou o efeito do uso do aparelho extrabucal (AEB sobre a intensidade da reabsorção radicular apical nos primeiros molares permanentes superiores submetidos à ação do aparelho. MÉTODOS: foram avaliadas as radiografias periapicais da região dos primeiros molares permanentes superiores, bilateralmente, de 19 jovens leucodermas, do gênero feminino, com idades entre 8 e 10 anos, com má oclusão do tipo Classe II, 1ª divisão dentária, pré e pós-tratamento com AEB de tração alta. As 76 radiografias foram divididas em dois grupos, de acordo com o grau de formação radicular. O grupo A consistiu de 18 radiografias com formação radicular incompleta, com exceção da raiz palatina, ao início do tratamento e 18 ao final. O grupo B consistiu de 20 radiografias com formação radicular completa ao início do tratamento e 20 ao final. Mensurou-se os comprimentos radiculares utilizando um paquímetro digital e submeteu-se as medidas obtidas ao teste de erro do método e à análise estatística (teste t de Student para verificar as diferenças no comprimento radicular antes e após o tratamento com o AEB. RESULTADOS: no grupo A ocorreu um aumento significativo dos comprimentos radiculares, enquanto no grupo B as diferenças dos comprimentos radiculares não foram significativas. As medidas pós-tratamento no grupo A não diferiram das medidas pré-tratamento no grupo B, ou seja, os dentes com formação radicular incompleta ao início do tratamento apresentaram crescimento radicular normal durante o tratamento ativo. CONCLUSÃO: concluiu-se que o uso do AEB não influenciou negativamente na formação radicular e não provocou reabsorção apical nos molares submetidos à ação do aparelho, sugerindo que o AEB não apresentou riscos à estrutura e formação radicular quando corretamente indicado e aplicado.AIM: The aim of this study was to verify the effect of occipital headgear wear on the intensity of

    Full Text Available O caso de ensino Unimed Leste Fluminense apresenta uma situação decisória que deve ser enfrentada por Dilson Reis, diretor de mercado da organização. O caso descreve a trajetória da empresa desde a sua fundação e apresenta o momento em que o diretor, pressionado pela concorrência e pela grande regulação do setor, questiona como aumentar a sua base de clientes. No momento da decisão, o setor apresenta forte intensificação na competição, sendo a maior disputa pelos grandes clientes empresariais, tanto entre os operadores de planos de saúde quanto entre os corretores que vendiam esses planos. A preferência por clientes empresariais decorria principalmente das restrições impostas pela regulamentação da Agência Nacional de Saúde Suplementar, aplicáveis aos clientes pessoa física. A estrutura de canais da Unimed Leste Fluminense não era bem definida, já que seus canais de venda competiam pelo atendimento de clientes pessoa física e jurídica, não havendo uma gestão coordenada de lojas, vendedores próprios, concessionárias e corretores. Nesse contexto, os possíveis conflitos de canal desgastavam a operadora, que fazia de tudo para conquistar o cliente, mas tinha pouco poder de influência sobre os parceiros de canais. O caso proporciona uma oportunidade para a discussão sobre a necessidade de alinhamento de estrutura dos canais de marketing aos objetivos de crescimento da firma. Possibilita ainda uma reflexão sobre a natureza dos conflitos multicanal e as ações requeridas para o gerenciamento de canais. Trata-se de um caso real, elaborado a partir de entrevistas em profundidade com Benito Petraglia, Dilson Reis e Jair da Costa Jr., respectivamente diretor administrativo, diretor de mercado e gerente de mercado da Unimed Leste Fluminense. Para facilitar o processo de envolvimento dos alunos, o dilema do caso foi apresentado na perspectiva de Dilson Reis. Informações secundárias foram utilizadas para triangula

O desvio foi avaliado por imagens de vídeo VHS sobrepostas a um quadriculado. Os resultados mostram que 77,4% dos incisivos apresentam desvios, sendo 61,0% moderados, 28,5% pequenos e 10,5% severos (estes, apenas nas extremidades do terço apical, de acordo com adaptação da técnica proposta por SCHNEIDER6 para determinação e classificação do grau de curvatura dos canais. Para os caninos anotam-se 47,1% dos dentes com desvio, sendo 75,0% moderados e 25,0% pequenos. E para os quarto pré-molares superiores observam-se 89,4% dos dentes com desvio, sendo 75,0% moderados, 16,7% pequenos e 8,3% severos. Comparados aos desvios radiculares observados na Odontologia Humana, concluímos que a ocorrência dos mesmos é baixa para a espécie canina facilitando a instrumentação do canal radicular.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Isaac José Peixoto Batinga ROCHA

    Full Text Available Resumo Introdução Quando existe perda de suporte coronário e ainda desgaste adicional devido a tratamento endodôntico, muitas vezes, é necessária a utilização de um retentor intrarradicular que devolva a retenção para a restauração, reestabelecendo estética e função às estruturas dentárias perdidas. A cadeia asséptica mantida durante a endodontia pode ser quebrada com alguns procedimentos clínicos. Objetivo Testar um protocolo de desinfecção por E. faecalis dos condutos radiculares, nas etapas de confecção de um retentor intrarradicular, desmistificando que a quebra da cadeia asséptica e o surgimento de infecções radiculares sejam provenientes da reabilitação protética. Material e método 50 dentes unirradiculares com endodontia concluída foram desobturados, tiveram seus condutos preparados para retentor intrarradicular e foram contaminados por Enterococcus faecalis. Os dentes foram separados em três grupos de acordo com a substância desinfectante: G1-solução fisiológica (n=10, G2- hipoclorito de sódio 2,5% (n=20, G3- clorexidina 2% (n=20. Em seguida, foi feita a desinfecção do conduto, secagem e análise da eficácia da solução. A avaliação da presença da bactéria foi feita através do cultivo em caldo Brain Heart Infusion, pelo método da turvação, e posterior identificação pelo meio Ágar Bílis-Esculina. A análise estatística foi feita pelo método do quiquadrado em tabulação cruzada, onde p<0,0001. Resultado Observou-se a inibição bacteriana de 100% em G2 e G3 e crescimento bacteriano de 100% em G1. Conclusão O emprego das substâncias avaliadas nas etapas protéticas de finalização de um retentor intrarradicular, como protocolado por esta pesquisa, é capaz de manter a cadeia asséptica sem interferir no sucesso da reabilitação protética.

    Radicular cysts are the most common cystic lesions of the jaw. Most of these lesions involve the apex of the offending tooth and appear as well-defined periapical radiolucencies. This case presents an unusually large multilocular radicular cyst crossing the midline and involving almost the entire body of the mandible. The clinical and radiographic appearance mimicked an aggressive cyst or benign tumor. The lesion was surgically excised, and the teeth were endodontically treated without any postoperative complications.

    Radicular cysts are inflammatory odontogenic cysts of tooth bearing areas of the jaws. Most of these lesions involve the apex of offending tooth and appear as well-defined radiolucencies. Owing to its clinical characteristics similar to other more commonly occurring lesions in the oral cavity, differential diagnosis should include dentigerous cyst, ameloblastoma, odontogenic keratocyst, periapical cementoma and Pindborg tumour. The present case report documents a massive radicular cyst crossing the midline of the palate. Based on clinical, radiographical and histopathological findings, the present case was diagnosed as an infected radicular cyst. The clinical characteristics of this cyst could be considered as an interesting and unusual due to its giant nature. The lesion was surgically enucleated along with the extraction of the associated tooth; preservation of all other teeth and vital structures, without any postoperative complications and satisfactory healing, was achieved.

    Radicular cysts (RCs) are the most common inflammatory jaw cystic lesions that occur infected and necrotic in teeth pulps. They account for more than 50% of all odontogenic cysts. Radicular cysts cause slowly progressive painless swelling. There are no symptoms until they become large. Enucleating the cyst is recommended with primary treatment. Here we describe a patient with a large RC with maxillary sinus involvement who underwent an endonasal endoscopic approach for complete resection. In conclusion, the endonasal endoscopic approach should be kept in mind for the resection of RC with maxillary sinus involvement because of its minimally invasive characteristics.

    Full Text Available A produção de mudas de caquizeiro (Diospyros kaki pelo processo da enxertia sobre porta-enxertos provenientes de sementes, ocasiona problemas de desuniformidade vegetativa. O objetivo do trabalho foi contribuir para o desenvolvimento de um protocolo para a regeneração de brotações de caquizeiro do tipo café, a partir de raízes por organogênese indireta. Segmentos radiculares obtidos de embriões germinados in vitro foram isolados de sementes de frutos maduros em meio MSfraction one-halfNO3. As sementes receberam assepsia pela imersão em etanol 70% por um minuto, em solução de hipoclorito de sódio 2,5% por 20 minutos e quatro lavagens em água esterilizada. No primeiro experimento, os segmentos radiculares de 2cm foram isolados em meio de cultura MSfraction one-halfNO3 acrescido de 0,01mM de ácido indolacético e quatro tipos de citocininas nas concentrações 1 e 10mM: zeatina, 6-benzilaminopurina, 2-isopenteniladenina e thidiazuron. No segundo experimento, para o enraizamento das brotações, foram testados quatro períodos de permanência em meio com 10mM de ácido indolbutírico: 0, 5 10 e 15 dias. A maior regeneração de brotos (1,2 brotos por explante ocorreu na combinação 1mM de zeatina com 0,01mM de ácido indolacético. As brotações juvenis obtidas possuem potencial natural para o enraizamento, sendo necessário novos estudos para confirmar o efeito da aplicação de auxinas.

    Our aim was to assess and compare the immunoexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in periapical granulomas (PGs), radicular cysts (RCs), and residual radicular cysts (RRCs), relating it to the angiogenic index and the intensity of the inflammatory infiltrate. Twenty PGs, 20 RCs, and 10 RRCs were evaluated by immunohistochemistry using anti-VEGF antibody. Angiogenic index was determined by microvessel count (MVC) using anti-von Willebrand factor antibody. The PGs and RCs showed higher expression of VEGF than the RRCs. Lesions presenting few inflammatory infiltrate revealed the lowest immunoexpression of VEGF (P .05). VEGF is present in periapical inflammatory lesions but at a lower level in RRCs. The expression of this proangiogenic factor is closely related to the intensity of the inflammatory infiltrate in these lesions.

    Cytokines were thought to play an important role for the expansion of odontogenic cysts. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the cytokine and chemokine levels of radicular and residual cyst fluids. Cyst fluids were aspirated from 21 patients (11 radicular and 10 residual cysts) and the levels of interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1alpha), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1), and regulated upon activation normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) were determined by ELISA using commercially available kits. Both radicular and residual cyst fluids contained IL-1alpha, TNF-alpha, MCP-1, and RANTES, concentrations of which were significantly higher in the radicular cyst fluids than those in the residual cysts (P cyst fluids. In addition, positive correlations were found between IL-1alpha, TNF-alpha, MCP-1, and RANTES in radicular and residual cyst fluids. If the radicular cyst is inadvertently left behind following tooth extraction, some degree of inflammation may carry on. Residual cysts, although to a lesser extend than radicular cysts, have the potential to expand.

    The author analyzed clinically and radiologically 319 radicular cysts which were proven histologically in Infirmary College of Dentistry Yonsei University and Seoul National University Hospital from 1965 to 1983, and which occurred in 167 males and 139 females between the ages of 6 and 70. This analysis was undertaken to discover the frequency and distribution of the radicular cysts with regard to the age and sex, the chief complaints of the patients, the regions, the radiographical appearances, the tooth changes, and the anatomical structures involved by the lesions. The obtained results were as follows: 1. The most frequently involved age group for the radicular cysts was the third decade of the patients, and the greatest number 69.9 percent occurred between the ages of 11 and 40 years. The statistical analysis did not show any significant difference between male and female (P>0.05) 2. The frequently involved region for the radicular cysts was orderly the maxillary anterior region (44.9 percent), the mandibular anterior region (15.9 percent), the maxillary premolar region (14.8 percent), and the mandibular premolar region (11.0 percent). The maxillomandibular ratio of the radicular cysts was about 7:3. The statistical analysis did not show any significant difference between right and left sides (P>0.05) 3. The greatest number was 92.2 percent, which were involved in apical portions of the radicular cysts, 88.7 percent of the radicular cysts were found in the round shapes which were oval and elliptical, and 66.8 percent of the radicular cysts were observed with the completely hyperostotic borders. 4. The radicular cysts caused the root resorption in 55.2 percent and the migration of the involved tooth or teeth in 23.5 percent respectively.

    Radicular cyst is the most common odontogenic cyst of inflammatory origin. It is almost all the times associated with pulpal necrosis leading to inflamed periapical tissues. The cyst is usually asymptomatic unless infected. Radiographically, it presents as a well defined unilocular radiolucency. Although, multilocular radiolucent radicular cysts have also been reported, which is extremely rare and there are very few reported cases. Here, we present a rare case of radicular cyst periapical to the first molar of third quadrant, presenting clinically as a painless, bony hard swelling and radiographically presented as a multilocular radiolucency.

    Radicular pain can be caused by disc herniation, lateral stenosis, isthmic spondylolisthesis with foraminal stenosis, or foraminal encroachment due to asymmetrical disc degeneration or scoliosis. Surgery is indicated following failure of conservative treatment. Minimally invasive discectomy is indicated for subjects presenting with radicular pain with or without neurological deficit and appropriate sized herniation in MRI. It offers equivalent efficacy but quicker recovery than microdiscectomy. Minimally invasive fusion is indicated for radicular pain due to foraminal compression in isthmic spondylolisthesis, asymmetric disc degeneration or scoliosis. It allows decrease in blood loss and postoperative pain. A less invasive technique should nevertheless not replace properly conducted conservative treatment.

    The radicular cyst is an inflammatory odontogenic cyst of endodontic origin. Radiographically, the lesion appears as a periapical radiolucent image. This report describes a very rare case of a mixed periapical radiographic image diagnosed as a radicular cyst. A 37-year-old female patient presented a mixed, well-circumscribed image located in the periapical region of the left maxillary central incisor, which presented unsatisfactory endodontic treatment. Microscopic examination revealed a cavity lined by non-keratinized squamous epithelium and extensive calcifications in the cystic lumen and lining epithelium. Diagnosis of radicular cyst with extensive calcifications was established. Endodontic retreatment was performed and no radiographic signs of recurrence were observed 18 months after treatment. Although very rare, a radicular cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a mixed periapical image associated to teeth with pulp necrosis.

    While common in adult teeth, radicular cysts are uncommon in deciduous teeth. When they do occur, they are associated with non-vital teeth and typically present 6 months to 5 years after vitality is lost. They cause swelling, bone-loss and permanent tooth bud displacement. Often, they are incidental findings. A case involving radicular cysts on the left and right sides of the mandible is presented. If non-vital deciduous teeth receive pulp therapy, regular post- operative reviews are recommended.

    This is the first report of a case of sacral radicular cysts in a patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). A 46-year-old woman with ADPKD was found to have bilateral sacral radicular cysts discovered incidentally by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Cysts arising from arachnoid or spinal meningeal sac should be considered one of the manifestations of a more widespread connective tissue disorder associated with ADPKD.

    A radicular cyst is one of the furthermost everyday odontogenic cysts of the anterior maxilla, not regularly comprehended in youth. They are found mostly at the apices of the tooth (periapical cyst), lateral surface of the roots (lateral radicular cyst) and remains in the jaw after removal of the offending tooth (residual cyst). The radicular cyst has been catalogued as an inflammatory cyst, as an outcome to pulpal necrosis succeeding caries, with a linked periapical inflammatory reaction. They advance sluggishly and asymptomatic lest infected. Because of this they can extent to big dimensions. Many times it is perplexing to segregate radicular cysts from the obligatory pre-existing chronic periapical periodontitis lesions radiographically. Here, we present a rare case with bilateral radicular cyst in relation to first molar of the mandible in a 19-year-old. Orthopantomograph showed a large unilocular radiolucency with a well-defined border in the periapical region of the first molar on the left side extending from the root of the second premolar to the mesial root of the second molar. Correspondingly another well-defined unilocular radiolucency with a well-defined border was seen on the right side of the mandible. Several treatment possibilities are presented for a radicular cyst such as surgical endodontic treatment, extraction of the transgressing tooth, enucleation with primary closure, and marsupialization trailed by enucleation. The patient management comprised surgical enucleation of cystic sac followed by rehabilitation of the same area.

  12. Role of tumour necrosis factor in pathogenesis of radicular cyst.

    The radicular cyst is very common odontogenic cyst of the jaws, which is usually associated with a tooth with necrotic pulp. The cyst formation requires proliferation of the epithelial rest cells of Malassez present in the periodontal ligament. Proliferation of epithelial rest cells of Malassez is an essential event in the Pathogenesis of radicular cyst. The wall of the cyst contains epithelial cells, macrophages, fibroblasts and other cells. TNF is one of inflammatory mediators, which is produced by macrophages and monocytes. This study was carried out to investigate the role of tumour necrosis factor in the pathogenesis of radicular cyst, which is by far the commonest cystic lesion of the jaws. Explants from 20 radicular cysts were cultured in vitro to grow the epithelial cells. However, the cultures were rapidly contaminated with fibroblasts and it was impossible to grow the epithelial cells separately. Therefore, the proliferative effect of Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) was studied on mammalian epithelial cells. TNF at low concentration had a proliferative effect on the epithelial cells, which may play some role in pathogenesis of radicular cyst. TNF stimulated the epithelial cell proliferation in low concentration and inhibit the proliferation in higher concentrations. These two effects may have some implications in the pathogenesis of radicular cyst.

    Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is one of the cytokines produced by macrophages, monocytes and dentritc cells. Macrophages are present in apical granuloma and the wall of the radicular cyst. This cytokine causes the cyst expansion and is involved in proliferation of fibroblasts in the cyst wall and stimulate the fibroblasts to produce more prostaglandin. Radicular cyst is the most common cyst of the jaws which is usually associated with necrotic pulp of the tooth. The cyst formation requires proliferation of the epithelial rest cells of Malassez present in the periodontal ligament. Proliferation of epithelial rest cells of Malassez is an essential event in the Pathogenesis of radicular cyst. Objective of the study was to investigate the effect of IL-1 on epithelial cell proliferation which is an important factor in the pathogenesis of radicular cyst. The cyst walls of 20 radicular cysts were removed and were cultured in vitro to grow the epithelial cells. The culture were rapidly contaminated and dominated by growth of fibroblasts. Therefore another cell line was used for the experiments. The result showed that proliferation was stimulated with increased in a biphasic manner with maximum stimulation at 1.25 nanog/ml, beyond this concentration proliferation was decreased. IL-1 had a proliferative effect on epithelial cells at low concentrations which may be playing a role in evoking an inflammatory reaction and stimulating the epithelial cell rests of Malassez to proliferate to form radicular cyst.

    Full Text Available A superfície radicular mais benéfica para a regeneração do periodonto ainda não está estabelecida. Visando uma busca por esta superfície este trabalho utilizou 14 dentes de humanos recém extraídos, seccionados em corpos de prova e tratados com raspagem e condicionamentos com ácido cítrico e EDTA e analisados em microscopia eletrônica de varredura. As superfícies hígidas apresentavam grânulos regulares provenientes de fibras do ligamento periodontal rompidas na exodontia. As superfícies contaminadas apresentavam massas de cálculo aderidas e áreas de reabsorção cementária. Quando raspadas com curetas manuais as superfícies foram cobertas por "smear layer". O condicionamento com ácido cítrico foi eficiente na remoção total do "smear layer", assim como o condicionamento com EDTA gel, e o condicionamento com EDTA líquido não teve efetividade total na sua remoção. Tomando como padrão as superfícies hígidas, conclui-se que os tratamentos que mais se aproximam do ideal são a raspagem e condicionamento com ácido cítrico e EDTA gel sem diferenças entre si.The most benefic root surface for periodontal regeneration has not been known. Looking for this surface this study used 14 human teeth prepared as testing corpus and treated with scaling and conditioning with citric acid and EDTA, and analysed in scanning electron microscopy. The health teeth surfaces showed regular grains representing broken periodontal ligament fibers by exodontics. The contaminated surfaces showed calculus masses, very porous, and resorption areas. When scalled with hand curettes the surfaces was covered by smear layer. The citric acid conditioning was efficient on smear layer removal, as well as the EDTA gel, and the EDTA liquid solution was not efficient on smear removal.

    The aim of the present study was to evaluate the expression and distribution of different classes of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) in radicular cysts and periapical granulomas. Twenty consecutive specimens of radicular cysts and 20 of periapical granulomas were selected. Expression of MMP-2, -9, -8, -13, -3 was immunohistochemically evaluated. The intensity of expression of the MMPs was evaluated using a semi-quantitative analysis: low = +; intermediate = ++; high = +++. Positive expression of MMPs was present with different distribution. MMP-9 expressed differently in the lesions. Indeed, in periapical granulomas low expression was found in endothelial cells and fibroblasts, whilst high intensities were only detected in inflammatory cells. On the contrary, in radicular cysts the high intensities were mainly present in keratinocytes and fibroblasts. MMP-8 was mainly expressed in inflammatory cells of periapical granulomas. MMP-2 and -3 presented a low intensity of expression in both groups. MMP-13 showed a variable pattern of distribution in the different cell types of the two different lesions. The present investigation supports the role of MMPs in the inflammatory process leading to the development of radicular cysts and periapical granulomas. The results of the present study suggested that the increased enlargement of radicular cysts, compared to periapical granulomas, might be related to a higher expression of MMP-9. On the other hands, the higher intensity of expression of MMP-8 in periapical granulomas could be related to an active inflammatory process. MMP-8 could play an important role in the inflammation processes during the development of periapical lesions.

    Reported is the outcome for 25 patients in whom spondylolisthesis with radicular pain was treated by posterolateral fusion alone (Group A). These outcomes are compared with those obtained in 23 other patients with the same symptomatology and spondylolisthesis treated by root release and posterolateral fusion (Group B). Most patients had Grade I or II isthmic spondylolisthesis. Results were assessed functionally and radiographically with an average followup of 32 months. Posterolateral fusion in situ provided excellent or good results in 88% of patients according to the modified classification of Stauffer and Coventry. In Group A, radicular pain at exertion disappeared in 92% of patients, and radicular pain at rest disappeared in 88%. In Group B, radicular pain at exertion disappeared in 65% of patients, and radicular pain at rest disappeared in 70%. There was no significant statistical difference between the 2 groups. Resection of the loose lamina and root decompression do not seem to be mandatory. The overall fusion rate was 81%. Instrumentation in case of instability and the use of allografts are advised.

    To investigate whether the microscopic filamentous aggregates observed in radicular cysts are associated with the molecular identification of Actinomyces israelii. Moreover, to verify whether this bacterium can be detected in radicular cyst specimens not presenting aggregates. Microscopic colonies suggestive of Actinomyces were found in 8 out of 279 radicular cyst samples (case group). The case and control groups (n = 12; samples without filamentous colonies) were submitted to the semi-nested polymerase chain reaction to test the presence of A israelii. DNA sequencing was performed to validate polymerase chain reaction results. Two and 3 samples in the case and control groups, respectively, did not present a functional genomic DNA template and were excluded from the study. A israelii was identified in all samples of the case group and in 3 out of 9 samples of the control group. Although A israelii is more commonly identified in radicular cysts presenting filamentous aggregates, it also appears to be detected in radicular cysts without this microscopic finding.

    Radicular cyst is one of the most common odontogenic cystic lesions found in the jaws. It is inflammatory in nature and found mostly in relation to a non-vital tooth. It usually presents at a later stage in life because the formation of the cyst is the last step in the progression of inflammatory events after a periapical infection. The cyst usually goes unnoticed because of its painless nature and small size. We present the clinical, radiographic and histological characteristics of a radicular cyst along with its management. Cystic sac was removed surgically under general anaesthesia after the elevation of the mucoperiosteal flap. Histopathologically, the cystic sac was consistent with the features of a radicular cyst. Follow-up period of 21 months showed improved radiographical appearance on Coned Beam CT. Vestibular deepening was planned as a future treatment in the same region.

    A case report is presented describing bilateral dens invaginatus of the maxillary lateral incisors. Pulpal disease of the lateral incisors resulted in radicular cysts with the right cyst expanding to cause the eventual loss of four teeth. Removal of the cysts was followed by normal healing. Early detection of the bilateral dens invaginatus might well have resulted in successful interceptive care.

    Full Text Available Saber o que ofertar para o público adequado é um desafio enfrentado pelos gestores que desejam que seus produtos alcancem um posicionamento de destaque para suas marcas, frente a seus concorrentes. Tão importante quanto saber o que ofertar é saber como ofertar e, acima de tudo, como entregar o produto para o cliente. Esta realidade é comum para os mais diversos setores da economia e, para o mercado de software, a realidade não é diferente, principalmente se analisado o segmento enterprise, que é formado por aplicativos para a gestão empresarial, e que, nos últimos anos, movimentou mais de US$ 400 milhões, somente na América Latina. Neste mercado existem, além das características específicas dos produtos de software, também as particularidades de cada cliente e prospect. Dentro deste contexto, a complexidade é ainda maior quando uma empresa, que possui três marcas distintas de um mesmo produto, decide unificar seus canais de distribuição destas três marcas, mantendo as três vivas, porém com novas estratégias comerciais. Assim, o objetivo deste artigo é responder a pergunta: como a unificação dos canais de distribuição pode trazer vantagens competitivas para uma empresa que desenvolve e comercializa três marcas diferentes de sistemas ERP?

    This study was aimed to evaluate the prevalence of metaplastic changes in the epithelium of radicular cysts and to investigate how they relate to the clinical and radiographic characteristics of the cysts, based on a large series of radicular cysts. Biopsies of cysts of endodontic origin that were examined at the Department of Oral Pathology between 2004 and 2011 have been re-evaluated for this study. Only cases that were re-confirmed with clinical and histological diagnoses of a radicular or residual radicular cyst were included. The included cases were evaluated for the prevalence of metaplastic changes in the form of mucous secreting cells (MSC) or ciliated cells (CC). The relations between the metaplastic changes and the cyst type (radicular or residual radicular), as well as demographic, clinical and radiographic parameters, were statistically evaluated using Fischer and chi-square tests. Significance was set at pcysts were included: 677 were radicular cysts (95%) and 34 (5%) were residual radicular cysts. 23 cases had histopathological diagnoses other than radicular or residual radicular cysts and were excluded from the study. MSC were present in 47 (6.6%) cysts. MSC were significantly more common in residual radicular cysts than in radicular cysts [8 (23.5%) and 39 (5.8%), respectively; pcysts were commonly found in asymptomatic patients (10.5%, pcysts, with a markedly high prevalence in the maxillary molar sextant (15%, pradicular and residual radicular cysts the presence of specific metaplastic changes may be related to cyst type, symptomatology, radiographic findings and tooth location.

    Eosinophilic granuloma is a common expression of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and corresponds with typical bone lesions. The radiographic appearance of eosinophilic granuloma in the jaw is variable and not specific. It may resemble periodontitis, radicular cyst, or malignancies. The purpose of this report is to describe the characteristic radiographic features of eosinophilic granuloma of a 39-year-old male. The lesion in the anterior mandible was first diagnosed as radicular cyst because the radiographic findings were ovoid radiolucent lesion with well-defined border. However, careful interpretation revealed a non-corticated border and floating tooth appearance that were the characteristic radiographic features for the differential diagnosis. Early clinical signs of eosinophilic granuloma can occur in the jaw and a bony destructive lesion might be mistaken for periodontitis or an odontogenic cystic lesion; therefore, careful interpretation of radiographs should be emphasized.

    Forty-six patients with low-grade isthmic spondylolisthesis (27 grade I and 19 grade II) and radicular pain underwent surgery after failure of conservative treatment for 6 months. Fusion and decompression was carried out in 23 patients (group 1) and fusion without decompression in the other 23 patients (group 2). Instrumentation was used in 16 patients who had instability and hypermobility as seen by dynamic radiography. Results were assessed functionally and radiographically and graded according to Stauffer and Coventry. The follow-up was an average of 20 (12-36) months. In group 1 there were 17 patients with excellent to good results, and in group 2, 21 patients. There was no significant statistical difference between the fusion rate in the two groups. Decompression in addition to fusion in adults with low-grade isthmic spondylolisthesis and radicular pain does not appear to improve the functional outcome.

    Interferon-γ plays an important role in the pathogenesis of periapical lesions, and the methylation of IFNG has been associated with transcriptional inactivation. The purpose of the present study was to investigate IFNG promoter methylation in association with gene transcription and protein levels in periapical granulomas and radicular cysts. Methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction was used to assess the DNA methylation pattern of the IFNG gene in 16 periapical granulomas and 13 radicular cyst samples. The transcription levels of IFNG mRNA were verified by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction, and protein expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry. All the periapical lesion samples exhibited partial or total methylation of the IFNG gene. In addition, an increased methylation profile was found in radicular cysts compared with periapical granulomas. Increased IFNG mRNA expression was observed in the partially methylated periapical lesion samples relative to the samples that were completely methylated. The present study provides the first evidence of the possible impact of IFNG methylation on IFNG transcription in periapical lesions. Copyright © 2013 American Association of Endodontists.

    A common consensus has not yet been reached on surgical management of isthmic Spondylolisthesis especially regarding the optimal surgical procedure. This prospective study was carried to see the outcome of Posterolateral fusion with instrumentation without decompression. Eight consecutive patients, aged between 43 to 55 years, underwent primary surgery for isolated L4, L5 lumbar isthmic Spondylolisthesis of less than grade II that presented with radicular pain and exhibited instability on dynamic radiograph. The surgical procedure consisted of instrumentation with pedicle screws and rods (Moss Miami System) and posterolateral fusion in situ by placement of autogeneous bone graft, harvested from posterior iliac crest. Postoperatively Clinical and Radiological status were assessed and were graded according to Stauffer and Coventry method. The patients were followed up for one to three years. Radiological evidence of fusion was clearly evident by six months in all cases. Symptomatically all were relieved of radicular pain completely. One patient had recurrent backache due to causes unrelated to the illness of surgical procedure requiring occasional analgesic. No serious complication was encountered. This lead to conclusion that in adults of our population with low grade isthmic spondylolisthesis and radicular pain Instrumentation with Posterolateral fusion without decompression was sufficient to relieve symptoms.

    Full Text Available Los sistemas agroforestales (SAF son una forma de uso de la tierra en donde las leñosas interactúan con los cultivos y/o animales, con la finalidad de diversificar y optimizar la producción de manera sostenida. Sin embargo, estos sistemas tienen limitantes originados por una combinación inadecuada de las diferentes especies, lo que resulta en competencia entre ellas. Las características radiculares de las especies leñosas tienen un papel importante en el éxito de los SAF, ya que indican modificaciones que pudieran existir entre especies asociadas. Por tanto, el objetivo de esta revisión es analizar la importancia de las interacciones radiculares, los criterios para el manejo con base en las características morfológicas y patrones de crecimiento entre especies y su impacto en los SAF. La incorporación de especies arbóreas dentro de los cultivos requiere de objetivos claros; es decir, conocer el papel que desempeñarían dentro del sistema. No es redituable utilizar especies arbóreas que no poseen cierto valor o producto, ya que la competencia entre los árboles y los cultivos es solamente admisible si es compensada a través de porlas ventajas con relación a los aumentos en la productividad de sistema. Son deseables aquellas especies arbóreas cuyas raíces sean agresivas con relación a los sistemas radiculares del cultivo asociado, y que manifiesten un crecimiento lateral profundo y/o posean una alta plasticidad. Una opción para reducir la competencia radicular es la regulación del espaciamiento y/o distribución de las diversas especies asociadas, así como la aplicación de prácticas de manejo. Los patrones de la actividad radicular de las plantas difieren entre especies, su conocimiento puede ayudar a evitar competencia excesiva y pérdidas de nutrientes en SAF con la asignación óptima del espacio y recursos disponibles.

    Apical periodontitis can appear clinically as apical granulomas or radicular cysts. There is evidence that immunologic factors are involved in the pathogenesis of both pathologies. In contrast to radicular cysts, the dentigerous cysts have a developmental origin. Macrophage polarization (M1 vs M2) is a main regulator of tissue homeostasis and differentiation. There are no studies comparing macrophage polarization in apical granulomas, radicular cysts, and dentigerous cysts. Forty-one apical granulomas, 23 radicular cysts, and 23 dentigerous cysts were analyzed in this study. A tissue microarray (TMA) of the 87 consecutive specimens was created, and CD68-, CD11c-, CD163-, and MRC1-positive macrophages were detected by immunohistochemical methods. TMAs were digitized, and the expression of macrophage markers was quantitatively assessed. Radicular cysts are characterized by M1 polarization of macrophages while apical granulomas show a significantly higher degree of M2 polarization. Dentigerous cysts have a significantly lower M1 polarization than both analyzed periapical lesions (apical granulomas and radicular cysts) and accordingly, a significantly higher M2 polarization than radicular cysts. Macrophage cell density in dentigerous cysts is significantly lower than in the periapical lesions. The development of apical periodontitis towards apical granulomas or radicular cysts might be directed by macrophage polarization. Radicular cyst formation is associated with an increased M1 polarization of infiltrating macrophages. In contrast to radicular cysts, dentigerous cysts are characterized by a low macrophage infiltration and a high degree of M2 polarization, possibly reflecting their developmental rather than inflammatory origin. As M1 polarization of macrophages is triggered by bacterial antigens, these results underline the need for sufficient bacterial clearance during endodontic treatment to prevent a possible M1 macrophage-derived stimulus for radicular cyst

    This study compared the use of piezosurgery and conventional surgery in radicular cyst enucleation. The study was conducted with 29 patients who were radiologically and cytologically prediagnosed with radicular cysts in the jaw region. Nineteen patients were treated using piezosurgery, and 10 were treated using conventional surgical procedures. Surgical procedures were evaluated according to the following criteria: hemorrhage, soft-tissue damage, manipulation complexity, major perforation areas on the enucleated cyst tissue, and approximate operation duration. Patients were monitored postoperatively and evaluated for hemorrhaging at 24, 48, and 72 hours following surgery. Follow-up was conducted to check for recurrences and ranged from 5 to 24 months. No complications were observed in any of the 20 patients treated using piezosurgery, although the duration of surgery was longer than expected. Of the 10 patients treated using conventional methods, hemorrhaging that affected the operation occurred in 3 cases, perforation of the cyst epithelium and difficulties in enucleation occurred in 5 cases, postoperative hemorrhage occurred in 2 cases, and recurrence was observed in 2 cases. Piezosurgery may be considered effective in procedures such as enucleation that require sensitive manipulation, despite the increase in the length of the overall surgical procedure. Given the results of the present study and the current lack of information in the literature regarding postoperative pain, infection, and long-term success rates associated with the use of piezosurgery in cyst enucleation, further study in this area is recommended.

With a consideration on different therapeutic methods. a proper method was selected. Radicular cyst occurred in 59.3 percent of 324 cases while 45.7 percent were granuloma. The most common incidence of these lesions was in the range of 24-25 years old. The most common location of lesions was the maxillary anterior. Sinus tracts occurred in 74 of all cases. 47.3 percent of these patients have been previously received root canal therapy. It is noticeable that 24 percent of all patients were treated endodontically before surgery. Higher incidence of granuloma occurred in small lesions while cysts were more common in large lesions. 232 of all cases showed one of the clinical symptoms, 16% pain, 35.8% swelling and 22.8% fistula. No symptoms were found in 92 cases.

    The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a radiometric analysis of radicular cysts and periapical granulomas is useful in the differential diagnosis. In this experiment, twenty-nine periapical radiographs of the radicular cyst and those periapical granuloma were used. The periapical radiography was taken by intraoral paralleling device. The X-ray film was digitized and digitally filtered to reduce film-grain noise. We estimated density difference of the inner/outer area, roundness or circularity, bone profile or scan line of the margin and cumulative percentage frequency curve of radicular cyst and periapical granuloma.The obtained results were as follows ; 1. The differences in density between ROIs of inner and outer area of radicular cysts were smaller than those of periapical granulomas.2. The equivalent circular diameter was over 6.3 mm, there was significant difference between periapical cyst and periapical granuloma.3. In differential diagnosis of radicular cyst and periapical granuloma using bone profile, sensitivity, spicificity and accuracy were considerably high (0.83, 0.86, 0.86) respectively.4. Cumulative percentage frequency curve of the radicular cyst was closer to the pseudo-pixel value of 50 than average curve, whereas periapical granuloma was closer to that of 0. Hence we conclude that digital radiometric features might be useful in the differential diagnosis between radicular cyst and periapical granuloma.

    Radicular cyst is the most common odontogenic cyst of inflammatory origin. It is almost all the times associated with pulpal necrosis leading to inflamed periapical tissues. The cyst is usually asymptomatic unless infected. Radiographically, it presents as a well defined unilocular radiolucency. Although, multilocular radiolucent radicular cysts have also been reported, which is extremely rare and there are very few reported cases. Here, we present a rare case of radicular cyst periapical to the first molar of third quadrant, presenting clinically as a painless, bony hard swelling and radiographically presented as a multilocular radiolucency.

    Full Text Available Though a clinical examination may reveal a deep fissure or pit on the surface of an anterior tooth, radiographic examination is a more accurate approach to diagnose an invagination. Dens invaginatus is one of the common dental deformities, but the defect involving the root and its association with radicular cyst is still very uncommon. The objective of this case presentation is to report a case of radicular dens in dente, which is a rare dental anomaly. This case report shows that dens invaginatus with an open apex and a radicular cyst can be treated successfully using currently available materials.

    We report a novel symptom in many patients with low back pain (LBP) that sheds new light on the underlying pain mechanism. By means of quantitative sensory testing, we compared patients with radicular LBP (sciatica), axial LBP (LBP without radiation into the leg), and healthy controls, searching for cutaneous allodynia in response to weak tactile and cooling stimuli on the leg and low back. Most patients with radicular pain (~60%) reported static and dynamic tactile allodynia, as well as cooling allodynia, on the leg, often extending into the foot. Some also reported allodynia on the low back. In axial LBP, allodynia was almost exclusively on the back. The degree of dynamic tactile allodynia correlated with the degree of background pain. The presence of allodynia suggests that the peripheral nerve generators of background leg and back pain have also induced central sensitization. The distal (foot) location of the allodynia in patients who have it indicates that the nociceptive drive that maintains the central sensitization arises paraspinally (ectopically) in injured ventral ramus afferents; this is not an instance of somatic referred pain. The presence of central sensitization also provides the first cogent account of shooting pain in sciatica as a wave of activity sweeping vectorially across the width of the sensitized dorsal horn. Finally, the results endorse leg allodynia as a pain biomarker in animal research on LBP, which is commonly used but has not been previously validated. In addition to informing the underlying mechanism of LBP, bedside mapping of allodynia might have practical implications for prognosis and treatment. How can you tell whether pain radiating into the leg in a patient with sciatica is neuropathic, ie, due to nerve injury? Copyright © 2014 International Association for the Study of Pain.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: This study assessed and compared the immunoexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9 in radicular cysts (RCs and residual radicular cysts (RRCs, relating them to the angiogenic index and the intensity of the inflammatory infiltrate. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty RCs and 10 RRCs were evaluated by immunohistochemistry using anti-VEGF and anti-MMP-9 antibodies. The angiogenic index was determined by microvessel count (MVC using anti-von Willebrand factor antibody. RESULTS: The expression of both VEGF and MMP-9 was higher in RCs than in RRCs. RCs and RRCs presented strong epithelial expression of VEGF, irrespective of the intensity of the inflammatory infiltrate. Lesions with strong expression of MMP-9 showed significantly higher number of immunopositive cells for VEGF (p<0.05 and higher MVC (p<0.05. Lesions with dense inflammatory infiltrate exhibited significantly higher MVC (p<0.05 and higher number of immunopositive cells for VEGF (p<0.05. There was a positive correlation between both MVC (p<0.05 and the quantity of immunopositive cells for VEGF (p<0.05, with intensity of the inflammatory infiltrate. In addition, it was observed a positive correlation between the number of immunopositive cells for VEGF and MVC (p<0.05. CONCLUSIONS: VEGF and MMP-9 might play important roles in the angiogenesis in RCs and RRCs. In these lesions, the expression of these molecules and the MVC is closely related to the intensity of the inflammatory infiltrate. The expression of VEGF in the epithelial lining of RCs and RRCs might be important for the enlargement of these lesions.

    To investigate whether the apoptotic cascade is activated through the extrinsic pathway in epithelial lining and connective tissue of radicular cysts. Fifteen radicular cysts were fixed in formalin, embedded in paraffin wax and processed for immunohistochemistry to evaluate the expression of polyclonal antibodies against Tumour necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), DR5 and caspase-3. Immunocomplexes were treated with the secondary antibodies and finally detected using the avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex. Immunoreactivity was visualized by development with 3,3'-diaminobenzidine. Data were analysed using the Mann-Whitney U-test; P radicular cysts; TRAIL and DR5 immunoexpression was significantly greater (P radicular cysts, demonstrated by the immunoexpression patterns of TRAIL, DR5 and caspase-3 in lining epithelium and connective tissue, may explain their bland clinical aggressiveness and slow, benign evolution. © 2012 International Endodontic Journal.

    Full Text Available A radicular cyst arises from epithelial remnants stimulated to proliferate by an inflammatory process originating from pulpal necrosis of a non-vital tooth. Radiographically, the classical description of the lesion is a round or oval, well-circumscribed radiolucent image involving the apex of the tooth. A radicular cyst is usually sterile unless it is secondarily infected. This paper presents a case report of conservative non-surgical management of a radicular cyst associated with permanent maxillary right central incisor, right lateral incisor and right canine in a 24-year-old female patient. Root canal treatment was done together with cystic aspiration of the lesion. The lesion was periodically followed up and significant bone formation was seen at the periapical region of affected teeth and at the palate at about 9 months. Thus, nonsurgical healing of a large radicular cyst with palatal swelling provided favorable clinical and radiographic response.

    To determine the incidence, age, gender, jaw-sites and subtypes of radicular cyst, and to determine the incidence of ameloblastomatous change in radicular cyst in a Nigerian population. A 10-year retrospective analysis of all diagnosed orofacial lesions in the Department of Oral Pathology and Medicine, University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Benin City, Nigeria. From the 785 diagnosed orofacial lesions within the study period; there were 54 (6.9%) cases of radicular cysts of the jaws. The peak age group was the 3(rd) decade (n=23, 42.6%) with a mean age of 31 ± 1.7 years. There were 29 (53.7%) males and 25 (46.3%) females, giving a ratio of 1.2:1. The mandible was the commonest jaw-site (n=32, 59.3%). There were 12 (22.2%) cases of periapical cyst which were significantly associated with anterior maxillary site (n=8, 14.8%) [p=0.001]. Seven (13.0%) cases of cystic ameloblastoma were diagnosed among the radicular cysts, with a predilection of the lesions for 3(rd) and 4(th) decades of life (n=6, 11.1%), and posterior mandible (n=5, 9.3%). This study showed a low incidence of radicular cyst of the jaw among orofacial lesions and a relatively higher incidence of ameloblastomatous change in radicular cyst compared to previous reports. Immuno-histochemical examination is recommended to differentiate radicular cyst with ameloblastomatous-like change from cystic ameloblastoma arising from radicular cyst.

    Lumbar radicular pain is a fairly common health problem, yet its risk factors are far from clear. There are no published systematic reviews on associations between cardiovascular or lifestyle risk factors and lumbar radicular pain or sciatica. The aim of this systematic literature review was to assess associations between these risk factors and lumbar radicular pain or sciatica. We conducted a systematic search of the Medline database for all original articles on lumbar radicular pain or sciatica published until August 2006. Twenty-two papers from 19 studies were included in the review. Overweight or obesity was associated with sciatica in most of the case-control and cohort studies. Some studies showed an increased risk of lumbar radicular pain in smokers with a long smoking history or in those with high levels of physical activity. A few case-control studies showed an association between serum C-reactive protein and sciatica. No consistent associations were found for serum lipids levels or high blood pressure. In summary, the associations of overweight, long smoking history, high physical activity and a high serum C-reactive protein level with lumbar radicular pain or sciatica were substantiated by the present review. However, more prospective studies are needed in order to further clarify these associations and the mechanisms of action. PMID:17525856

    Schmörl's node is focal herniation of intervertebral disc through the end plate into the vertebral body. Most of the established Schmörl's nodes are quiescent. However, disc herniation into the vertebral marrow can cause low back pain by irritating a nociceptive system. Schmörl's node induced radicular pain is very rare condition. Some cases of Schmörl's node which generated low back pain or radicular pain were treated by surgical methods. In this article, authors reported a rare case of a patient with radicular pain cause by Schmörl's node located inferior surface of the 5th lumbar spine. The radicular pain was alleviated by serial 5th lumbar transforamnial epidural blocks. Transforamnial epidural block is suggested as first conservative option to treat radicular pain due to herniation of intervertebral disc. Therefore, non-surgical treatment such as transforamnial epidural block can be considered first treatment option of radicular pain caused by Schmörl's node.

    Full Text Available A arquitetura do sistema radicular tem implicações na capacidade da planta de obter nutrientes e água do solo; aspecto, este, não muito considerado nos estudos de desenvolvimento vegetal. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o comportamento do sistema radicular de dois porta-enxertos micropropagados de macieira (Malus spp., em razão da associação micorrízica. Foram utilizados um porta-enxerto vigoroso e com grande capacidade de enraizamento (Marubakaido e outro ananicante e com sistema radicular pouco desenvolvido (M.9. As plantas oriundas de micropropagação foram transferidas para substrato à base de solo, a fim de serem enraizadas ex vitro. Antes ou após o enraizamento, inoculou-se uma mistura de três isolados de fungos micorrízicos arbusculares ou um filtrado com a biota não-micorrízica do inoculante. Aos 51 e 81 dias, avaliaram-se o número e o comprimento de eixos radiculares e das raízes de ordem 1, 2, 3 e 4. A inoculação micorrízica antes do enraizamento aumentou o número e o comprimento de raízes do porta-enxerto Marubakaido, porém, o portaenxerto M.9 teve o número e o comprimento de raízes diminuído quando a inoculação micorrízica ocorreu antes da fase de enraizamento.Root architecture is scarcely considered in plant physiology studies, despite its great importance to plant growth and development.

    Heparanase is an endo-β-D-glucuronidase enzyme which degrades heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycan side chains of proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix and in basement membranes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of heparanase in periapical granulomas (PGs) and radicular cysts (RCs). Immunohistochemistry was used to assess heparanase expression in PGs and RCs. Parameters including stain intensity, location and cell type were used to characterize heparanase expression in the periapical lesions. Ordered categories (from weak to strong) were used to compare the level of heparanase staining in the PG and RC groups. Both epithelial cells and inflammatory cells were positive for heparanase. The relative staining of the epithelial cells was strong, whereas the relative staining of the inflammatory cells was weak. Significant differences in immunohistochemical staining of epithelial cells were observed between RCs and PGs (p = 0.002). The relative expression of heparanase in epithelial cells in RCs was strong. In PGs, lesions with few or no epithelial cells, heparanase was predominantly expressed weakly by inflammatory cells. PGs and RCs have the same infectious origin. Therefore, the different cellular sources of heparanase in these periapical lesions may imply that this enzyme has specific pathogenetic functions in RCs and PGs.

    Full Text Available Actinomycosis is an infection caused by filamentous, branching, Gram-positive anaerobic bacteria. It rarely infects the jawbone. This case report describes a patient with a left maxillary central incisor with an apical lesion and actinomycotic infection. A 23-year-old male patient underwent conventional root canal treatment of tooth 21, in a local dental clinic for about 1 year. However, percussion pain and a sinus tract that originated from tooth 21 were still present after treatment. Nonsurgical root canal treatment of tooth 21 was performed again but failed to relieve the symptoms. Therefore, apicoectomy and retrograde filling of the apical root canal with mineral trioxide aggregate were carried out. Periradicular bony defect was grafted by biocompatible material, and postoperative antibiotics (250 mg amoxicillin were given three times daily for 5 days. Pathological examination of the removed periapical tissue showed a radicular cyst with actinomycosis. At the 9-month postoperative recall, the sinus tract had disappeared and radiographic examination showed healing of the apical lesion. Periradicular actinomycosis is one important reason for failure of nonsurgical endodontic treatment. Clinically, if the tooth shows a recurrent sinus tract and poor response to conventional root canal treatment combined with antibiotic control, apical actinomycotic infection should be highly suspected, and an alternative endodontic surgical approach is needed for successful treatment.

    Radicular cysts occur as a result of the immunological response to continuous antigenic stimulation from root canals. We correlated the immunophenotypical composition of the lymphoid infiltrate to the microvessel density expressed by the count of CD34 reactive endothelial cells in radicular cysts. Thirty-four cases of radicular cysts were evaluated by immunohistochemistry, using antibodies against B- and T-cell antigens (CD20, CD3, CD4, CD8) and against the endothelial cell marker CD34. Statistical analysis was performed. In the epithelium, we observed a low amount of lymphoid infiltrate in all 34 radicular cysts, and a strong significant negative correlation between T and B lymphocytes and between T-helper and T-cytotoxic/suppressor lymphocytes. In the cyst capsule, we observed a significant positive correlation between B and T lymphocytes, B and T-cytotoxic/suppressor lymphocytes, T and T-helper lymphocytes and between the number of CD34+ blood vessels and T and T-helper lymphocytes, respectively. We observed a statistically significant correlation between percentage of CD34+ vessels and inflammatory infiltrate grade. Both humoral and cellular immune reactions and neovascularization are likely to occur in the complex events of tissue destruction. The inflammatory infiltrate has an important role in neoangiogenesis and consequently in radicular cysts development and growth. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

    The distinction between radicular cysts and apical granulomas is a matter of considerable importance in making a treatment decision. Because there are no clearly defined radiographic criteria, the distinction is made on the grounds of size. However, it has been suggested that cysts can be distinguished from granulomas on the basis of their radiometric density. The results of previous studies have proved conflicting. To determine possibilities of application of digital radiography density measurements in differentiation of periapical granulomas and radicular cysts of inflammatory origin. The material consisted of 355 digital periapical radiograms obtained using Digora, RVG and Dixi 2 digital radiography systems in patients aged 20 to 84, divided into two groups: 259 granulomas and 102 radicular cysts. By means of Digora 2.0 software there were measured maximum and minimum densities along a line, then there was calculated the difference between maximum and minimum density. The largest dimensions of the lesions were measured - perpendicular and parallel to the root canal axis. It was proved that to some extent it was possible to differentiate cystic granulomas and radicular cysts on the basis of the difference between maximum and minimum density in linear measurement - when the difference exceeded 85.6 the lesion was a cyst and when it was below 45.9 a granuloma was diagnosed. Combination of two criteria - the calculated difference between densities and the largest dimension of a lesion, increased diagnostic possibilities of radiological differentiation of granulomas and radicular cysts.

O estudo foi realizado em campo, no Município de Dourados, MS, em Latossolo Vermelho distroférrico, textura muito argilosa. O delineamento experimental foi o de blocos ao acaso, com cinco repetições. O solo utilizado apresentava histórico de oito anos com plantio direto. A compactação adicional do solo foi realizada por meio de tráfego com trator, com uma (PDc1, duas (PDc2, quatro (PDc4 e seis passadas (PDc6 sucessivas, sobre toda a área da parcela. Houve aumento na razão entre o córtex e o cilindro vascular da raiz com o aumento na compactação do solo. Essa razão correlacionou-se negativamente com a macroporosidade e positivamente com a densidade do solo e com a resistência do solo à penetração. O grau de compactação afeta a anatomia radicular do milho, e a resistência do solo à penetração é o indicador físico que melhor expressa esse efeito.The objective of this work was to evaluate the relationship between maize root anatomy and physical attributes of soil subjected to levels of compaction. The experiment was carried out in field conditions, in Dourados, Mato Grosso do Sul state, Brazil, in a clayed Latossolo Vermelho (Rhodic Acrustox. A randomized complete block design was used, with five replicates. The soil was cultivated for eight years under no-tillage. The additional compaction of the soil was done by tractor traffic in one (PDc1, two (PDc2, four (PDc4 and six successive passes (PDc6, in the entire area of the experimental plots. Ratio between the cortex and vascular cylinder of the root increased with soil compaction. This ratio was negatively correlated to macroporosity, and positively to soil density and soil penetration resistance. Soil compaction level affects the anatomy of maize roots, and its penetration resistance is the best

    Full Text Available Palatal radicular groove is a discreet alteration in tooth morphology, characterized by an invagination that begins near the cingulum of the tooth and moves in an apical direction. Clinically, palatal radicular groove may be associated with periodontal and/or endodontic problems. This paper describes a clinical case of a young patient with palatal radicular groove with no signs of periodontal disease or endodontic impairment. An early diagnosis was made and treatment consisted of surgical sealing of the defect. After a 2-year period, reexaminations demonstrated adequate hygiene, maintenance of tooth vitality and periodontal health. The early diagnosis and sealing of the groove observed surgically made the root surface smooth, avoiding subgingival bacterial plaque buildup, and preventing possible periodontal and/or pulp impairment stemming from the defect.

    Radicular cysts are the most common cysts in human jaw bones. These lesions induce bone remodeling of the surrounding alveolar bones, which was termed 'condensing osteitis', and was suggested to be related to cells of the osteoblastic lineage. The Runx2 (core-binding protein [cbfa]1/polyoma enhancer-binding protein [pebp]2alphaA) was shown to be a DNA-binding transcriptional molecule expressed in osteoprogenitor cells. We confirmed the specificity of anti-Runx2 antiserum, using Western blotting analysis. We investigated the expression and localization of Runx2 in 32 radicular cyst cases with bone tissue fragments, immunohistochemically. Signals for Runx2 were seen in 18 cases (56.3%) of radicular cysts with bone formation. These signals were immunolocalized in the nuclei of the spindle-shaped osteoprogenitor cells in the cyst walls, whereas only a few signals were seen in the cuboidal osteoblastic cells near the fibrous bones. Signals for type I collagen were immunolocalized in the dense collagen fibers in the cyst walls and in the matrix of the fibrous bone around the radicular cysts, whereas no signals were seen on the inner portions with inflammatory cell infiltration of the cyst walls. Very weak signals for transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta1 were infrequently seen in the osteoblasts of the fibrous bone, whereas signals for TGF-beta2 were observed in young osteocytes in the fibrous bones, in B-cell lymphocytes infiltrating into the inner portions, and on the cellular membranes of the lining epithelium. The nuclear expression of Runx2 in spindle-shaped cells in the outer portions may play an essential role in the induction of fibrous bone tissue around radicular cysts. TGF-beta2 may play a role in the production of type I collagen, which acts as a template for pathologic new bone formation, in radicular cysts.

    A 35-year-old man with a long history of left L5 radicular pain was found to have an intraspinal cystic lesion causing radicular compression. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a round lesion situated in the anterior epidural space, with uniform high signal intensity on T2-weighted sequences characteristic of a cystic lesion. During surgery a liquid-containing cyst originating from the posterior longitudinal ligament was punctured and resected. The histologic aspect was that of a ganglion cyst without synovial layers. The radiologic differential diagnoses are discussed. (orig.)

    As opposed to other odontogenic cysts, the radicular cyst is always produced by intraradicular infection, therefore it is important to eliminate the cause of the inflammation as well. During the healing of the radicular cyst, the infected tooth should be treated by extraction or root canal treatment completed by surgical intervention. The presented case is a 77 year-old male patient with Type II Diabetes, who required oral surgery and endodontic treatment. Despite of the age and diabetes of the patient, the bone regeneration was rapid and complete. Seven months after starting the treatment, the size of the cyst decresed significantly and by 12th month it was perfectly healed.

    Spine surgeons must correlate clinical presentation with radiographic findings in a patient-tailored approach. Despite the prevalence of adult degenerative scoliosis (ADS), there are few radiographic markers to predict the presence of radiculopathy. Emerging data suggest that spondylolisthesis, obliquity, foraminal stenosis, and curve concavity may be associated with radiculopathy in ADS. The purpose of this study was to determine if radicular pain in ADS is associated with reduced interpedicular heights (IPHs) as measured on routine radiographs. This is a retrospective case-controlled study. The authors carried out a retrospective chart review at a tertiary care referral center that included ADS patients referred to scoliosis surgeons between 2012 and 2014. Inclusion criteria included patients with ADS and no prior thoracolumbar surgery. Data were collected from initial spine surgeon clinic notes and radiographs. Clinical outcome data included presence, side(s), and level(s) of radicular pain; presence of motor deficits; and presence of sensory deficits. Variables included age, gender, Scoliosis Research Society-30 (SRS-30) and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) questionnaire data, and radiographic measurements. Radiographic measurements included Cobb angles and L1 to S1 IPHs on upright and supine radiographs. Associations between variables and outcome measures were assessed with univariate and multivariate statistical analyses. Authors have no conflicts of interests relevant to this study. A total of 200 patients with an average age of 51 years met the inclusion criteria. Sixty of the 200 patients presented with radicular pain. Older age was associated with radicular pain, weakness, and sensory deficits. Patients who were 55 years or older were approximately eight times more likely to have radicular pain (odds ratio [OR]=7.96, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 3.73, 17.0; pradicular pain (pradicular pain and sensory deficits were not associated with lower SRS-30 or ODI

    Pharmacologic treatment of radicular pain with oral medications is limited by adverse effects and concern for dependence. While topical formulations have been explored in pain research, there is no published literature evaluating the efficacy in radicular pain. We present the first three cases of radicular pain successfully treated with a topical formulation of diclofenac, ibuprofen, baclofen, cyclobenzaprine, bupivacaine, gabapentin, and pentoxifylline (T7). Case series evaluating T7 for treatment of radicular pain in a single, outpatient pain center. Pain was rated on the numeric rating scale (NRS) on initial evaluation and follow up after a trial of T7. One to two grams of T7 was applied to the affected area 3 - 4 times daily in addition to the patient's baseline pharmacologic management. Three patients with median age of 50 (range, 39 to 65) and diagnosis of cervical and/or lumbosacral radicular pain participated. Two of the three had chronic radicular pain despite use of analgesic agents, spinal injections and failed spinal surgery syndrome. Each reported subjective improvement in radicular pain, function and sleep. There was an average decrease in NRS score consistent with 30% - 40% global improvement in symptoms, clinically significant based on the minimal clinically important difference for radicular pain. T7 was well tolerated without adverse reactions. Surgery was prevented or delayed in all cases. This is the first report of the successful treatment of radicular pain with a topical agent. This highlights the need for randomized, prospective study of both single and compounded topical agents for treatment of radicular pain.

Em Podzólico Vermelho-Amarelo de textura superficial franca, foi implantada uma pastagem de estação fria composta por aveia (Avena strigosa Schreb e azevém (Lolium multiflorum L.. A carga animal variou conforme o crescimento da pastagem. Em dezembro de 1996, foi implantada a cultura do milho (Zea mays L. para a produção de silagem, usando os seguintes tratamentos: plantio direto na área não pastejada, plantio direto após o pastejo, preparo convencional de solo na área não pastejada e preparo convencional de solo após pastejo. As avaliações apresentadas neste estudo são referentes ao terceiro ano de cultivo, no qual houve um período de pastejo de 107 dias. Aos 45 dias da emergência do milho, foram abertas trincheiras (100 x 40 cm para visualizar a distribuição do sistema radicular e coletar amostras de solo, a cada 5 cm, para caracterização química e determinação da densidade do solo e de raízes. Ao longo do perfil (0-40 cm, o desenho da distribuição de raízes indicou maior quantidade de raízes no preparo convencional de solo, concordando com os resultados de densidade de raízes. O pisoteio animal não teve efeito sobre as características físicas, possivelmente pelo fato de o resíduo da pastagem permanecer próximo a 1,0 Mg ha-1 de matéria seca. A densidade do solo no plantio direto, na camada de 5-10 cm, foi de 1,41 Mg m-3, tanto na área pastejada como na não pastejada. No preparo convencional de solo, esses valores foram de 1,15 Mg m-3

    Full Text Available As técnicas de estudo radicular são trabalhosas e, dentre os métodos mais utilizados no Brasil, destacam-se a trincheira ou parede do perfil, blocos ou monólito, placa com pregos e trado. Essas técnicas utilizam amostragem destrutiva e direta das raízes. Com o objetivo de adaptar um método de avaliação da atividade radicular da cultura da soja utilizando nitrato de rubídio (RbNO3, realizou-se um experimento em Botucatu - SP. O experimento constituiu-se de duas etapas, sendo uma em campo e outra em casa de vegetação. Plantas de soja foram cultivadas em vasos de 15 dm³ de amostras de Nitossolo Vermelho em casa de vegetação. Aos 25 DAE, aplicaram-se 3 mL de solução de RbNO3 nas doses de 0,0; 0,5; 1,0; e 2,0 mg dm-3 de Rb, à 0,05 m de profundidade no centro de cada vaso. A parte aérea das plantas foi coletada e separada em caule + pecíolo e limbo foliar aos dois, quatro e seis dias depois da aplicação de RbNO3. Em campo, aplicaram-se 3 mL de RbNO3 (1,0 mg dm-3 de Rb em diferentes distâncias da planta (0,075, 0,15 e 0,225 m e nas profundidades de 0,05; 0,10; 0,20; 0,40; e 0,60 m. A parte aérea das plantas foi coletada quatro dias depois da aplicação de RbNO3. A soja não apresentou fitotoxicidade ao RbNO3, o que foi eficiente na determinação da atividade radicular da cultura.Root study techniques are labor intensive. Among the most frequently used methods are the trench or profile wall, block or monolith, needle board and hand auger. These techniques use destructive and direct root sampling. With the objective of adapting an evaluation methodology of soybean root activity based on Rubidium Nitrate, an experiment was carried out in Botucatu, SP, Brazil, in two phases; one in the field and the other in a greenhouse. Soybean plants were grown in 15 L pots. 25 DAE, 3 mL of Rubidium Nitrate solution was applied at 0; 0.5; 1.0 and 2.0 mg dm-3, at a depth of 0.05 m in the middle of each pot.

    Full Text Available O trabalho de Al-Qawasmi et al.², publicado em agosto de 2003 no periódico Journal of Dental Research, procurou estabelecer um gene candidato para a hereditariedade e predisposição genética nas reabsorções dentárias em Ortodontia, mas apresentou e repetiu algumas limitações metodológicas e equívocos na interpretação de seu trabalho anterior de março de 2003¹. Nas conclusões afirmam explicitamente que os achados são preliminares e sugestivos, necessitando de confirmação por meio de estudos adicionais. Os resultados são correlacionados fundamentando-se em dados de outros autores sobre síndromes ósseas associadas a reabsorções por substituição, cervicais externas e não com as reabsorções radiculares externas apicais induzidas ortodonticamente. O gene da reabsorção radicular externa apical relacionada a tratamentos ortodônticos não foi determinado e muito menos a sua natureza hereditária. Nem tampouco, a suscetibilidade à reabsorção radicular em Ortodontia foi detectada ou provada. O trabalho analisado e os demais relacionados com o mesmo tema não conseguiram comprovar suas hipóteses porque ignoram que o primeiro passo para a reabsorção radicular externa é a destruição da camada cementoblástica e isto apenas ocorre a partir da ação de fatores locais. Analisando criticamente estes trabalhos podemos afirmar que procurar o gene da reabsorção radicular e da suscetibilidade a partir de pesquisas em mediadores e células clásticas demonstra a falta de um conhecimento completo e amplo da etiopatogenia deste importante fenômeno biológico, imprescindível para o estabelecimento da premissa dos trabalhos.The study of Al-Qawasmi et al.² published in August 2003 on Journal of Dental Research, aimed to establish a candidate gene for heritability and genetic predisposition to external root resorption in orthodontic patients.

    Full Text Available No reports have described experiments designed to determine the strength characteristics of spinal nerve roots and rami radiculares for the purpose of explaining the complexity of symptoms of medullary cone lesions and cauda equina syndrome. In this study, to explain the pathogenesis of cauda equina syndrome, monoaxial tensile tests were performed to determine the strength characteristics of spinal nerve roots and rami radiculares, and analysis was conducted to evaluate the stress-strain relationship and strength characteristics. Using the same tensile test device, the nerve root and ramus radiculares isolated from the spinal cords of pigs were subjected to the tensile test and stress relaxation test at load strain rates of 0.1, 1, 10, and 100 s -1 under identical settings. The tensile strength of the nerve root was not rate dependent, while the ramus radiculares tensile strength tended to decrease as the strain rate increased. These findings provide important insights into cauda equina symptoms, radiculopathy, and clinical symptoms of the medullary cone.

    Full Text Available Objectives: This study aimed to assess the radicular wall thickness in mandibular incisors with two canals and find the maximum and minimum thickness to prevent root canal treatment (RCT procedural errors.Materials and Methods: A total of 160 extracted mandibular incisors were selected and radiographed; out of which, 55 had two canals. Three parallel transverse sections were made in each tooth at 1mm below the cementoenamel junction (CEJ, mid-root and 1 millimeter to the apex. Specimens were evaluated under a stereomicroscope and the thickness of radicular walls in each section was determined for the buccal, lingual and proximal surfaces. Data were statistically analyzed using Pearson’s correlation coefficient test.Results: The thickness of radicular wall decreased from the cervical towards the apex. In all three sections (cervical, mid-root and apical, the thickness of lingual wall was significantly greater than the buccal wall. Also, the thickness of buccal and lingual walls was significantly higher than that of the proximal walls.Conclusion: The lingual radicular wall had the highest thickness in two-canal mandibular incisors. Therefore, in these teeth, the lingual canal is a better choice for post placement.Key words:

    Chronic dental periapical lesions result from chronic inflammation of periapical tissues caused by continuous antigenic stimulation from infected root canals. Recent findings have suggested that T helper (Th) 1 and Th2-like cytokines are important in the pathogenesis of chronic periapical inflammatory diseases. However, the mechanisms regulating these immunoinflammatory pathways have not been fully elucidated. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate interleukin (IL)-4, IL-12, and interferon γ (IFN-γ) protein levels in human radicular cysts and periapical granulomas. Archived samples of cysts (n = 52) and granulomas (n = 27) were sectioned and submitted to immunohistochemistry to evaluate the tissue expression of IL-4, IL-12, and IFN-γ. The data were analyzed using the Mann-Whitney U test (P radicular cysts. IL-4 expression was stronger in periapical granulomas than in radicular cysts. IL-12 was not detected in any of the samples. Our study showed that IFN-γ protein levels are increased in radicular cysts, whereas IL-4 expression is stronger in samples of periapical granulomas. Further studies are necessary to elucidate the signaling pathways mediated by these cytokines and to facilitate the development of more effective periapical disease management strategies.

    Full Text Available Diosmin has been widely used to treat patients with vascular pain for its potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. To evaluate the therapeutic effects of Diosmin in the treatment of radicular pain, we conducted an investigator-initiated, randomized, active-controlled noninferiority trial between January 1, 2009, and December 1, 2010. Diosmin (50 mg/kg/day was orally administered to treat the radicular pain in 150 patients for one month. Another 150 patients with the same symptom were given 20% 250 ml mannitol (1 g/kg/day for 7 days and dexamethasone (10 mg/day for 3 days intravenously guttae. Short-term relief and long-term relief were measured. Secondary outcomes include improvement in functional and psychological status, return to work, and reduction in anti-inflammatory analgesic drugs intake. Patients treated with oral Diosmin achieved reduction in radicular pain. The total satisfaction rate of Diosmin group was 84.7% [95% confidence interval (CI: 77.9%, 90.0%], and the complete satisfaction rate was 50.7% (95% CI: 42.4%, 58.9%. No statistically significant difference was found between the Diosmin group and the active-control group regarding patient satisfaction. No adverse effects were found during the study period. Our study suggests that clinical application of Diosmin with a dose of 50 mg/kg/day might reduce the radicular pain. This trial is registered with ISRCTN97157037.

    Full Text Available Louro-pardo (Cordia trichotoma (Vell. Arrab. ex Steudel é espécie arbórea que possui raízes gemíferas, nas quais, após a ocorrência de distúrbios de origem natural ou antrópica, ocorre a formação de brotos. Nessa espécie, ao considerar a habilidade natural de regeneração pelo sistema radicular, presume-se que esses propágulos constituem material com elevado potencial morfogenético. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a propagação vegetativa de louro-pardo por estaquia radicular. No primeiro experimento, raízes de mudas de louro-pardo foram seccionadas em estacas com 5,0 cm de comprimento, classificadas quanto ao diâmetro em grossas (1,6 - 2,5 cm e finas (1,0 - 1,5 cm e tratadas em solução de 0, 10, 20 e 30 mM de AIB, por 10 seg. No segundo experimento, os propágulos foram classificados quanto à posição de coleta na raiz das mudas em basais, medianas e apicais, seccionadas em estacas de 1,0; 3,0 e 5,0 cm de comprimento e tratadas em solução de 30 mM de AIB. O uso de AIB favoreceu o enraizamento das estacas radiculares, com maiores respostas nos tratamentos com a dose de 30 mM. Estacas radiculares com maior diâmetro mostraram-se mais aptas à brotação quando comparadas com as estacas radiculares menos espessas. As melhores respostas de brotação e enraizamento ocorreram em estacas radiculares basais e medianas com 3,0 e 5,0 cm de comprimento. Portanto, é possível realizar a propagação vegetativa de louro-pardo pela técnica de estaquia radicular.

    This article was designed to report the clinical case of the radicular cyst localized in the maxillary sinus of the 23 year-old man that had been detected before the surgical intervention was undertaken for its treatment. In the preceding visits of the patient to other medical settings, this condition was misinterpreted as a genuine (rhinogenic) cyst. It accounted for the choice of the inadequate surgical strategy for the management of this pathology. As a result, the patient experienced two relapse episodes of the disease. The thorough analysis of the patient's medical history and CT images of the sinus obtained during the 4 year follow up period allowed to establish the definitive diagnosis of odontogenic cyst of the upper jaw. The authors present a brief overview of the relevant scientific literature concerning etiology and pathogenesis as well as the methods of diagnostics and treatment of radicular cyst of the upper jaw.

    Endodontic diagnosis is challenging and depends on the organisation of information from the patient history, clinical examination and analysis of the pulp, radiographic and histopathological assessment. A 35-year-old man was endodontically treated for radiolucency in relation to the roots of maxillary central incisors as it was a provisionally diagnosed case of radicular cyst. Since the palatal swelling persisted, the lesion was re-evaluated using relevant diagnostic aids and a diagnosis of nasopalatine duct cyst (NPDC) was made, which was missed during the initial assessment. An erroneous interpretation of cystic radiolucency in relation to maxillary central incisors can often lead to inappropriate treatment planning. This case highlights the relevant aspects in the diagnosis of NPDC when it is mistaken for a radicular cyst and emphasises the need for thorough clinical examination and relevant investigations for periapical radiolucencies of questionable origin before initiating endodontic therapy.

    Yassen, Ghaeth H.

    Endodontic regeneration treatment of necrotic immature teeth has gained popularity in recent years. The approach suggests a biological alternative to induce a continuous root development. In this project, three in vitro experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of three medicaments used in endodontic regeneration on mechanical properties and chemical structure of radicular dentin. In the first experiment, we investigated longitudinally the effect of medicaments on the indentation properties of the root canal surface of immature teeth using a novel BioDent reference point indenter. A significant difference in the majority of indentation parameters between all groups was found after one-week and one-month application of medicaments (p double antibiotic paste (DAP) > control > calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2]. The four-week exposure of dentin to TAP and DAP caused 43% and 31% increase in total indentation distance outcome, respectively. In the second experiment, we investigated longitudinally the effect of medicaments on the chemical structure of immature radicular dentin by measuring the phosphate/amide I ratios of dentin using Attenuated Total Reflection Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. Phosphate/amide I ratios were significantly different between the four groups after one week, two weeks and four week application of medicaments (p untreated dentin > DAP-treated dentin > TAP-treated dentin. In the third experiment, we investigated longitudinally the effect of medicaments on root fracture resistance and microhardness of radicular dentin. For the microhardness, the two-way interaction between group and time was significant (pendodontic regeneration caused significant change in the chemical integrity of the superficial radicular dentin and significantly affected the indentation properties of the root canal surface. Furthermore, the three month intracanal application of medicaments significantly reduced the fracture resistance of roots.

    Interleukin-33 (IL-33) is a recently identified cytokine belonging to the IL-1 family and ligand for the IL-1 receptor-related protein ST2. IL-33/ST2 signaling plays a critical role in allergy, autoimmunity, and chronic inflammatory disorders, but its role in the pathogenesis of periapical lesions is unknown. We aimed to investigate the expression patterns of IL-33 and ST2 in human periapical lesions. Periapical lesions (n = 36) and healthy periapical tissues (n = 10) were evaluated by immunohistochemistry using antibodies specific for human IL-33 and ST2. Lesion samples were further analyzed by double immunofluorescence to assess IL-33/ST2 co-expression. The numbers of IL-33- and ST2-positive fibroblasts were significantly higher in periapical lesions compared to healthy periapical tissues (both P 0.05). There were no significant differences in the numbers of IL-33- and ST2-positive fibroblasts and endothelial cells between periapical granulomas and radicular cysts (all P > 0.05). Similarly, numbers of ST2-positive mononuclear cells did not differ between periapical granulomas and radicular cysts (P > 0.05). The majority of epithelial cells in radicular cysts were IL-33 positive, while the small proportion of epithelial cells was ST2 positive. Double immunofluorescence analysis revealed IL-33/ST2 co-expression in fibroblasts and endothelial cells. IL-33 and ST2 are expressed in periapical granulomas and radicular cysts. Increased numbers of IL-33- and ST2-positive fibroblasts in periapical lesions when compared to healthy periapical tissues suggest that IL-33/ST2 signaling may be involved in periapical inflammation and tissue fibrosis. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

    [Purpose] In this paper, hamstring stretching and nerve mobilization are conducted on patients with radicular lower back pain, and changes to pain levels, pressure thresholds, angles of knee joint extension, and disorder levels of lower back pain were studied. [Subjects and Methods] The subjects were divided into two groups: one group conducted hamstring stretches and was comprised of 6 male and 5 female subjects, and the other group received nerve mobilization treatment and was comprised of 5 male and 6 female subjects. [Results] Pain level and the disorder index of lower back pain were significantly alleviated after the intervention in both groups. Pressure threshold and angles of knee extension were significantly increased after the intervention in both groups. Comparing the two groups, the alleviation of pain was more significant in the nerve mobilization group. [Conclusion] Patients with radicular lower back pain showed significant differences in pain level, pressure threshold, knee extension angle, and disorder index of lower back pain for both the hamstring stretching group and nerve mobilization group after the treatment. Hamstring stretching and nerve mobilization can be usefully applied for the therapy of patients with radicular lower back pain.

    To compare immunochemical and clinical parameters in patients with chronic radicular and myofascial back pain. A study included 92 patients (55 men and 37 women) with radicular pain syndrome and 97 patients (33 men and 64 women) with myofascial pain syndrome. Pain status was assessed with the differential visual analogous scale (at rest, on movement, at night and during spontaneous pain). Tensor algometry was used to measure pain intolerance thresholds at day and night. Levels of natural antibodies (nAB) to endogenous pain regulators (β-endorphin, orphanin, serotonin, dopamine, histamine and angiotensin) were determined in the blood serum by ELISA. Patients were examined at admission to the hospital, on 10th and 21st days of treatment. There was a significant decrease in pain syndrome in all patients to the 21st day. Pain intensity was higher in patients with radicular pain syndrome (рPain intolerance thresholds were initially reduced in both groups. No significant between-group differences in the dynamics were not found either in men or women. Women had lower pain intolerance thresholds compared to men. An analysis of nAB profiles to pain regulators showed that they were correlated with higher and high indices, with the predominance of nAB to β-endorphin, orphanin and histamine in both groups. The increased levels of antibodies circulate in the blood serum of patients with dorsalgia for a long time can further be a factor of pain chronification.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background This paper describes a quantitative analysis of the cyst lining architecture in radicular cysts (of inflammatory aetiology and odontogenic keratocysts (thought to be developmental or neoplastic including its 2 counterparts: solitary and associated with the Basal Cell Naevus Syndrome (BCNS. Methods Epithelial linings from 150 images (from 9 radicular cysts, 13 solitary keratocysts and 8 BCNS keratocysts were segmented into theoretical cells using a semi-automated partition based on the intensity of the haematoxylin stain which defined exclusive areas relative to each detected nucleus. Various morphometrical parameters were extracted from these "cells" and epithelial layer membership was computed using a systematic clustering routine. Results Statistically significant differences were observed across the 3 cyst types both at the morphological and architectural levels of the lining. Case-wise discrimination between radicular cysts and keratocyst was highly accurate (with an error of just 3.3%. However, the odontogenic keratocyst subtypes could not be reliably separated into the original classes, achieving discrimination rates slightly above random allocations (60%. Conclusion The methodology presented is able to provide new measures of epithelial architecture and may help to characterise and compare tissue spatial organisation as well as provide useful procedures for automating certain aspects of histopathological diagnosis.

    Receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB (RANK), RANK ligand (RANKL) and osteoprotegerin (OPG) are members of the superfamily of ligands and receptors of tumour necrosis factor family involved in bone metabolism. The formation, differentiation and activity of osteoclasts are regulated by these proteins. To clarify the roles of osteoclast regulatory factors in cystic expansion of odontogenic cysts, expression of these proteins were analysed in radicular and dentigerous cysts. The immunohistochemistry expression of these biomarkers were evaluated and measured in lining epithelium and fibrous capsule of the radicular (n=20) and dentigerous cysts (n=20). A similar expression in lining epithelium was observed in the lesions. The fibrous capsule of dentigerous cyst showed a higher content of RANK-positive and RANKL-positive cells than fibrous capsule of radicular cyst. In the lining epithelium the RANKL/OPG ratio showed higher numbers of OPG-positive than RANKL-positive cells, whereas fibrous capsule of the cysts had a tendency to present a similar expression (OPG=RANKL). Ours findings indicate the presence of RANK, RANKL and OPG in cysts. Moreover, increased expression of OPG compared to RANKL in the lining epithelium could contribute to the differential bone resorption activity in theses lesions. Copyright © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

    This study investigated the differentiation of radicular cysts from granulomas. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging was compared with the existing standard, biopsy and histopathology. Forty-five patients scheduled for an apicoectomy received a CBCT scan of the involved arch. Two oral and maxillofacial radiologists, working independently and using the same criteria, categorized the CBCT images as one of the following: cyst, likely cyst, likely granuloma, granuloma, or other. After apicoectomies, two oral pathologists, working independently and using the same criteria, diagnosed the surgical specimens as one of the following: radicular cyst, granuloma, or other. We examined the following: (1) interrater agreement between pathologists as to the biopsy diagnosis, (2) interrater agreement between radiologists as to the CBCT diagnosis, and (3) accuracy of radiologists' diagnostic assessments using histopathology as the standard. Findings showed strong interrater reliability between pathologists (kappa=0.79, z=5.46, pradicular cysts from granulomas. Surgical biopsy and histopathological evaluation remain the standard procedure for differentiating radicular cysts from granulomas. Copyright (c) 2010. Published by Elsevier Inc.

    Radicular cysts are common lesions in daily dentistry practice. However, the mechanisms related to epithelial lining formation and cavity growth are not fully understood. Therefore, the purpose of this article was to review the biological factors implicated in these process. Literature was selected through a search of PubMed electronic databases matching the following key words in the title or abstract: "cyst" OR "granuloma" OR "abscess" AND "radicular" OR "apical" OR "periapical" AND "epithelium" OR "epithelial" OR "epithelial lining." The PubMed database was searched for articles published between 1975 and 2014. Only English language was applied to the search. The literature search yielded a total of 187 articles. After duplicate references were discarded, a subsequent search at the title and abstract level revealed 42 articles for full-text reading. The articles were categorized into 5 main subtopics: (1) cell proliferation, cell cycle, and apoptosis; (2) extracellular matrix constituents; (3) inflammatory components; (4) bone metabolic factors and; (5) others. These subtopics described the characteristics of radicular cysts focusing on the epithelial tissue effects. Several factors from different sources (epithelial cells, stromal cells, extracellular matrix, and bone matrix) were implicated on apical cyst pathogenesis. Probably a combination of many factors involving an epithelial-stromal interaction is responsible for the sustenance and growth of apical cysts. Copyright © 2015 American Association of Endodontists.

  19. Uncommon synchronous histopathological features of a radicular cyst: a case report

    Science.gov (United States)

    2009-01-01

    Radicular cysts are the most common inflammatory odontogenic cystic lesions. It originates from epithelial residues in periodontal ligaments secondary to inflammation. The pathogenesis involves the activation of epithelial cell rests of Malaseez after physical, chemical or bacterial injury. Microscopically, the cyst is thin with smooth or corrugated inner surface. The most common epithelial lining is stratified squamous; with Rushton's hyaline bodies in 10% of the reported cases. Slow accumulation and deposition of cholesterol during the inflammatory process leads to the formation of "clefts" with acute and chronic inflammatory cells in the proliferating epithelium and connective tissue, respectively. The presence of hemosiderin usually indicates a previous micro-hemorrhage event. While the presence of lipid-laden macrophages or foam cells indicate the presence of cholesterol-removing mechanism from the lesion. We report a rare case of 38-year-old Mediterranean female presented with throbbing right maxillary pain. The diagnosis of radicular cyst was confirmed by the presence of atrophic non-keratinized stratified squamous epithelium. The radicular cyst was associated with hemosiderin, foam cells, subepithelial fibrosis and root canal dystrophic calcification. They represent uncommon synchronous histopathological features.

    Radicular cysts are by far the most common cystic lesions of the jaw. However, those arising from primary teeth are comparatively rare, comprising only 0.5 to 3.3%. The aim of this paper is to present clinical, radiographic and histopathological characteristics of radicular cyst associated with a primary mandibular molar causing unusual displacement of the permanent successor. Extraction of primary tooth along with extirpation of cyst was done under local anesthesia. The displaced premolar was also extracted and then replanted in the socket after proper alignment. Healing was uneventful and the space of missing primary molar was maintained by band and loop space maintainer. The relationship between intracanal medicaments and rapid growth of cyst, as mentioned in literature was observed in our case too. Thus, pulpotomy treated primary teeth should receive periodic postoperative radiographic examination and absence of clinical symptoms does not mean that a pulpotomy treated tooth is healthy.

    Squamous odontogenic tumor-like epithelial islands occurring in the walls of odontogenic cysts are histologically identical to the squamous odontogenic tumor (SOT). Microscopically, the squamous odontogenic tumor-like proliferations (SOTLPs) share certain histologic features with SOT, acanthomatous and desmoplastic ameloblastoma, and well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Little is known about the rarely reported SOTLPs occurring in radicular cysts. The purpose of this study was to define the clinical and histopathologic spectrum of SOTLP in radicular cysts and to investigate its histogenesis, prevalence, and biologic behavior. A retrospective clinicopathologic study was conducted at the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry, and a total of 42 radicular cysts with SOTLPs were accepted. Clinical findings and detailed histopathologic features were documented, and follow-up information was solicited for the 42 cases. Forty-two cases of radicular cysts with SOTLPs were found among 1241 radicular cysts. Two thirds of the cases revealed the SOTLPs were arising from budlike extensions of the epithelial lining of the cyst. The SOT-like epithelial islands were in areas free of inflammatory cells in 73.8% of the cases. No evidence of recurrence or unexpected clinical behavior was reported in 11 cases with adequate follow-up. The prevalence of SOTLPs in radicular cysts at Louisiana State University School of Dentistry is 3.4%. The SOTLPs appear to originate from the epithelial lining of the cyst and do not appear to be directly associated with inflammation. The biologic behavior of the radicular cyst with SOTLP is innocuous, with no apparent potential for neoplastic transformation or recurrence. Copyright © 2011 American Association of Endodontists.

    Different cell types and cytokines have been identified as contributors to the formation of periapical lesions. In this perspective, this study aimed to evaluate the immunoexpression of interleukin (IL)-17, transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1, and the forkhead box P3 (FoxP3) in periapical lesions, correlating them with the type of lesion, the intensity of the inflammatory infiltrate, and the thickness of the cystic epithelial lining. Twenty periapical granulomas (PGs), 20 radicular cysts (RCs), and 20 residual radicular cysts (RRCs) were submitted to immunohistochemical analysis using anti-IL-17, anti-TGF-β1, and anti-FoxP3 antibodies. In comparison with PGs and RCs, RRCs exhibited a lower immunoexpression of IL-17 and TGF-β1 (P = .021 and P < .001, respectively). The number of FoxP3+ cells increased in this order: RRCs, RCs, and PGs (P < .001). In comparison with lesions with inflammatory infiltrates grades I and II, lesions with inflammatory infiltrate grade III exhibited a higher number of FoxP3+ cells (P = .002). Similarly, in comparison with lesions with inflammatory infiltrates grades II and III, lesions with inflammatory infiltrate grade I showed a tendency for a lower expression of IL-17 and TGF-β1 (P = .085 and P = .051, respectively). For all groups, there was a positive correlation between the immunoexpressions of IL-17 and TGF-β1 (P < .05). Positive correlations between the number of FoxP3+ cells and the immunoexpressions of IL-17 and TGF-β1 (P < .05) were found only in PGs. Th17 and Treg cells seem to interact at the site of injury, suggesting the involvement of proinflammatory and immunoregulatory cytokines in the pathogenesis of periapical lesions.

    Full Text Available Voltage-gated potassium channels (VGKCs play a critical role in the regulation of neuronal excitability and have been implicated in some types of epilepsies. Recently, autoimmune limbic encephalitis (LE was associated with antibodies against VGKC. In addition, patients with LE showed partial epilepsy and increased T2 signal abnormalities in limbic structures. We have reported familial mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (FMTLE associated with hippocampal atrophy (HA and other signs of mesial temporal sclerosis detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI. In order to investigate whether VGKC may be associated to HA present in FMTLE, we perform linkage study in these candidate genes. Seventy-three microsatellites markers were genotyped in different human autosomal chromosome. Two-point LOD scores did not show evidence for linkage with any of the microsatellite markers genotyped (Zmax ranging from 0.11to-9.53 at theta=0.00. In the present study, linkage data showed no evidence that VGKC are involved in the determination of HA in FMTLE.Canais de potássio voltagem-dependentes (CPVD desempenham importante papel na excitabilidade neuronal e estão associados a determinados tipos de epilepsia.

    Lumbar synovial cysts are an uncommon cause of back pain and radiculopathy, usually manifesting with gradual onset of symptoms, secondary to involvement of the spinal canal. Rarely, intracyst hemorrhage occurs, and may acutely present as radicular - or even spinal cord - compression syndrome. Synovial cysts are generally associated with degenerative facets, although the pathogenesis has not been entirely established. We report a case of bleeding complication in a synovial cyst at L2-L3, adjacent to the right interfacet joint, causing acute pain and radiculopathy in a patient on anticoagulation therapy who required surgical resection.

    The failure of amalgam retrofilling and presence of an associated cystic lesion makes surgical endodontic intervention inevitable. Amalgam retrofilling can also give rise to mucoperiosteal tattoo formation and allow incorporation of amalgam particles in the cystic lining. Such a finding has not yet been reported in the endodontic literature. This case report describes the successful endodontic management of a large radicular cyst associated with failed amalgam retrofilling, mucoperiosteal tattoo and amalgam particles dispersed in the epithelial cystic lining. All four mandibular incisors associated with the lesion presented with Weine Type II canal anatomy. The follow-up revealed clinical and radiographic signs of healing.

    A cystic structure was identified radiographically in a four-year-old dog during routine dental prophylaxis. Surgical removal of the cyst lining was achieved by exposure of the site through extraction of the right first to third maxillary incisor teeth (101, 102, 103). The cyst lining was removed en-bloc. The cavity was curetted and filled with decalcified freeze-dried bone. Histological examination revealed a radicular cyst. The proposed etiology is blunt trauma to tooth 103, pulpal necrosis, apical granuloma and resulting cyst formation. Fourteen months following surgery, there was no recurrence of the cyst.

    To correlate values of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) depending on the count of inflammatory cells with degree of vascularization in cystic fluid of radicular cysts. We investigated TNF-alpha concentration in 43 radicular cysts obtained from patients undergoing surgery, under local anaesthesia, and after aspiration of cystic fluid from non-ruptured cysts by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay assay in respect of different clinical parameters as well as by histomorphometric analyses. Significantly higher concentration of TNF-alpha is associated with smaller radicular cysts, higher protein concentration in cystic fluid as well as with higher presence of inflammatory cells, and increased degree of vascularization in pericystic tissues and cyst wall thickness. We believe that determination of TNF-alpha in cystic fluid simultaneously with other parameters can be an additional parameter for clinical diagnosis of inflammed cysts.

    We evaluated whether the pre-treatment of radicular dentin by ED Primer containing different concentrations of chlorhexidine can improve the bond durability of fiber post to radicular dentin. Experimental ED primers containing different concentrations of chlorhexidine (0%, 0.5% and 1.0%) were prepared. Thirty extracted maxillary anterior teeth were divided into 3 groups, each group corresponding to different chlorhexidine concentrations. Fiber posts were cemented in endodontically treated teeth with experimental ED primers and Panavia F. The bonded teeth were transversally sectioned into six slices and then were processed for thin slice push-out test 24 h later or after 18-months water storage. Eighteen-month storage resulted in significant bond strength reduction of all groups (pchlorhexidine into ED primer can extend the bond longevity of fiber post to radicular dentin.

    Full Text Available Avaliou-se a superfície relativa do sistema radicular de cafeeiros dos cultivares Catuaí e Arábica de Coffea arabica, do 'Guarini' de C. canephora e do 'Icatu', descendente de hibridações entre essas espécies, pelo método titulométrico ligeiramente modificado. Outras medidas foram tomadas para a caracterização dos cultivares: peso seco e comprimento das raízes e da parte aérea e diâmetro do caule. O cultivar Guarini, além de apresentar maior superfície relativa, tem, também, maior peso seco de raízes, da parte aérea, maior diâmetro do caule e maior comprimento da parte aérea. Observaram-se altas correlações entre os dados da superfície relativa, peso seco das raízes e peso da parte aérea. Sugere-se que o método da titulação seja aplicável em investigações sobre o estudo do sistema radicular em geral.The root surface areas of 10 months old coffee plants (Coffea arabica L. cvs. Arabica and Catuaí, C. canephora Pierre cv. Guarini, and C. arabica x C. canephora cv. Icatu were evaluated by an adaptation of the WILD & VOIGHT (8 titration method. The root and shoot dry weight, stem diameter, shoot and root lengths were also measured. The plants were assigned in a randomized complete-block design with 5 blocks and 4 replications per plot. They were grown in polyethylene bags in a coffee nursery under 50% sun light. A greater root surface area, dry weight, stem diameter and shoot length was found in the cultivars Guarini. A high correlation between root surface area and root and shoot dry weights was observed for all studied coffee cultivars. The use of the titration method is suggested for measuring effects of physical, chemical and biological agents on root systems of coffee plants as well as other species.

  5. The role of RANK/RANKL/OPG signalling pathways in osteoclastogenesis in odontogenic keratocysts, radicular cysts, and ameloblastomas.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the immunohistochemical expression of molecules involved in osteoclastogenesis, including the receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B (RANK), RANK ligand (RANKL) and osteoprotegerin (OPG) in odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs), which has been named as a keratocystic odontogenic tumour by the WHO, and compare their expression with radicular cysts and ameloblastomas. RANK is a member of tumour necrosis factor receptor family and it is activated by RANK ligand. OPG binds to RANKL and inactivates it. The imbalance of these factors could cause the differential bone resorption activity in some diseases and tumours. The expression of these molecules was evaluated in ameloblastomas (n = 20), OKCs (n = 20), and radicular cysts (n = 20) by immunohistochemistry. Immunohistochemical reactivity for RANK, RANKL, and OPG was detected in neoplastic and nonneoplastic epithelium and connective tissue cells. RANK showed the greatest expression in OKCs followed by ameloblastomas, with the lowest expression seen in radicular cysts. Expression of RANKL was detected in all lesions and no significant differences were observed between groups. OPG was expressed very low in all groups. In the stroma, the number of RANK positive cells was higher in OKCs when compared with ameloblastomas and radicular cysts but radicular cyst had higher numbers of RANKL positive cells in the stroma than ameloblastomas. The molecular system of RANK/RANKL/OPG is variably expressed in OKCs, radicular cysts, and ameloblastomas and this system may be involved in the osteoclastogenic mechanisms in OKCs and ameloblastomas. Advanced studies could further clarify the role of RANK, RANKL, and OPG in mediating tumour associated bone osteolysis.

    The radicular groove is a developmental anomaly that predisposes the tooth to periodontal break-down. Sometimes the situation becomes more complicated by pulp necrosis and development of a combined endodontic-periodontal lesion which is a diagnostic and treatment challenge for the clinician. This report presents the successful management of an endodontic-periodontal lesion in a maxillary lateral incisor that has a developmental palatal radicular groove using a combination of nonsurgical endodontic therapy and periodontal regenerative techniques. The combination of nonsurgical endodontic and periodontal regenerative treatment is a predictable method in treating combined endodontic-periodontal lesions caused by palato-gingival groove.

    2010-07-01

    There is general agreement that lumbosacral nerve root compression is a prime factor in the pathogenesis of sciatica and neurogenic claudication, although humoral and vascular factors certainly play a role as well. This book focuses on imaging of the various ways in which nerve root compression can come about, and assessing which anatomic features are reliably associated with the occurrence of radicular pain, as opposed to morphologic findings which are probably coincidental. After a discussion of the nature of radicular pain and related symptoms, spinal imaging techniques and options are reviewed, with emphasis on the role of MR myelography in assessing the condition of the intradural nerve roots. A chapter on normal topographic, sectional, and functional (dynamic) radiologic anatomy is followed by a presentation on pathologic anatomy, addressing the various mechanisms of nerve root compression. In the chapter on pre- and postoperative imaging, features which may help to predict the evolution of the symptoms are discussed, with an eye to selecting candidates for surgical treatment. This is followed by a discussion of the role and limitations of imaging studies in various adverse postoperative conditions. In illustrations involving patient studies, imaging features are linked where possible to the clinical symptoms and history of the individuals involved. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Odontogenic cysts are those which arise from the epithelium associated with the development of teeth. Some odontogenic cysts were found to have special biological features that make them distinct from other lesions. This study was conducted to detect the immunoepxression of laminin-1 and Ki-67 in both radicular cysts (RCs and keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs and to examine the possible predictive value of these markers. Methods Thirteen cases of RCs and twelve cases of KCOTs were included in this study. Antibodies against laminin-1 and Ki-67 were used as primary antibodies. Results ten cases out of thirteen cases of RCs were immunopositive to laminin-1. The immunonegative cases of RCs showed high degree of inflammation inside the connective tissue wall. One case out of twelve cases of KCOTs was immunopositive to laminin-1 and the rest were immunonegative. Seven cases out of thirteen cases of RCs showed immunopositivity for Ki-67 with increased numbers of immunopositive cells when the inflammation was severe in the connective tissue wall. All KCOTS were immunopositive to Ki-67. Conclusions The benign nature of radicular cysts and the aggressive behavior of keratocystic odontogenic tumors could be explained by the expression of laminin and Ki-67. Laminin-1 and Ki-67 could be valuable markers for the prediction of the biologic behavior of cystic lesions.

    Full Text Available Introduction. Therapeutic approach to jaw cysts may depend on their dimensions and localization. Enucleation of cystic lesion is not always preferable in the first act, especially if large cysts are in close proximity to important anatomical structures. The aim of this paper was to present the outcome of the treatment protocol comprising preoperative decompression and subsequent enucleation of a large maxillary cyst. Case report. A 21-year-old male patient with large asymptomatic radicular cyst in the right maxillary sinus was presented to our clinic. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT showed a large cyst, which perforated the right anterior maxillary wall by 1.5 cm, and was in the intimate contact with the orbital floor. Surgical treatment of the cystic lesion comprised: preoperative decompression with biopsy in the first act and enucleation, performed under general anesthesia, 6 months after the observation period. Conclusion. Decompression with subsequent enucleation proved to be effective treatment of large radicular cyst in maxillary sinus with low-morbidity.

    This study aimed to investigate the influence of the radicular maturity level of primary teeth on the sequelae of traumatic dental injury (TDI). A longitudinal retrospective study that collected data from dental records and radiographs of patients with TDI in one or both maxillary primary central incisors was conducted. Sequelae such as crown discoloration, pulp canal obliteration (PCO) and inflammatory root resorption (IRR) were evaluated during a 12- to 18-month follow-up period after the trauma. Of the 132 patients included in the study, 103 (78%) had luxations and 29 (22%) had dental fractures. At the initial postinjury examination, 12 teeth (9.1%) were found to have immature roots, 107 (81.1%) had closed apexes and 13 (9.8%) had visible root resorption. Inflammatory root resorption occurred mostly in traumatized teeth that presented with physiological root resorption at the moment of trauma (P = 0.004). The frequency of PCO was higher in teeth with a closed apex at the moment of the injury (P = 0.026). There was also an association between the type of injury and the occurrence of crown discoloration (P = 0.008) as well as between the type of injury and the development of PCO (P = 0.001). The occurrence of TDI sequelae can be determined by the type of injury as well as by the radicular maturity level of the primary teeth at the moment of injury. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o efeito do sistema plantio direto (PD e o do preparo convencional (PC e o uso de calcário (0 e 2,0 t ha-1 no sistema radicular da cana-de-açúcar. Este estudo foi realizado em Latossolo Vermelho eutroférrico, em experimento de longa duração, iniciado em 1998, após três ciclos de quatro anos com colheita sem queima da palha. Foram realizadas coletas de amostras de solo para avaliação de alguns atributos físicos (densidade, porosidade e resistência à penetração e de fertilidade do solo. Para a coleta de raízes, foi utilizada sonda amostradora em quatro épocas definidas pelo balanço hídrico da região, sendo a amostragem realizada em seis pontos equidistantes à linha da soqueira, em camadas de 0,20 m até 1,0 m de profundidade. O PD e o uso de calcário resultaram em valores mais elevados dos atributos relacionados à aplicação do calcário, como V% e teores de Ca, apenas na camada superficial. Os valores de densidade e resistência foram mais elevados no PD e na entrelinha. Na linha de plantio, não houve diferença entre os tratamentos. A cana-de-açúcar manteve, em média, cerca de 4,0 t ha-1 de raízes no solo na camada até 1,0 m de profundidade. Houve diferença significativa entre as camadas e as posições de amostragem e, embora as raízes da cana-de-açúcar se concentrem na superfície e próximo da soqueira, 25 a 30 % das raízes estão na entrelinha (0,6 m da soqueira e 15 a 30 % estão abaixo de 0,60 m, indicando que as raízes da cana-de-açúcar exploram grande volume de solo. A variação na quantidade de raízes foi mais influenciada pela condição hídrica do solo do que pelas práticas de manejo. A maior quantidade de raiz foi determinada no máximo excedente hídrico; e a menor, na época de reposição hídrica do solo. As maiores varia

    Full Text Available A conexão de computadores à INTERNET é feita por meio de empresas denominadas provedores de acesso à INTERNET, que atendem vários tipos de usuários oferecendo diferentes formas de conexão física. A mais simples é aquela em que o usuário se conecta a um canal de atendimento do provedor por meio de uma linha telefônica comum. Conseguir um canal disponível pode não ser uma tarefa fácil, principalmente nos horários de pico, o que resulta num problema enfrentado pelos provedores, que é o de determinar a relação ideal entre o número de usuários e o número de canais de atendimento. Para resolvê-lo, é preciso analisar o tradeoff entre investir em capacidade (número de canais e satisfazer o nível de serviço desejado aos usuários (probabilidade de acesso. O objetivo deste trabalho é modelar este tradeoff por meio de teoria de filas. A metodologia envolve basicamente três passos: (i analisar os processos de chegada (chamadas e serviço (atendimento dos usuários em certos períodos, (ii selecionar um modelo de filas apropriado, sob algumas hipóteses simplificadoras, e (iii construir curvas de tradeoff entre medidas de desempenho do sistema, em particular, da probabilidade de acesso em função do número de canais de atendimento, ou da taxa média de usuários. Para ilustrar a aplicação da metodologia, são apresentados os resultados de um estudo de caso realizado num provedor no interior do estado de São Paulo, com processo de chegada Poisson mas com tempo de atendimento não exponencialmente distribuído. Algumas perspectivas para pesquisa futura são apontadas, como agrupar os usuários em diferentes classes, em função do comportamento da chegada e do serviço, e analisar o particionamento da capacidade em função destas classes.The computer connection to INTERNET is provided by firms known as INTERNET access providers, which can handle several kinds of users by offering different forms to of physical connection.

MÉTODOS: a amostra consistiu de 40 mini-implantes inseridos entre as raízes do primeiro molar e segundo pré-molar superiores de 21 pacientes, com o intuito de fornecer ancoragem para retração anterior. A largura do septo no local de inserção (LSI foi mensurada nas radiografias pós-cirúrgicas e, sob esse aspecto, os mini-implantes foram divididos em dois grupos: grupo 1 (áreas críticas, LSI3mm. A estabilidade dos mini-implantes foi avaliada mensalmente pela quantificação do grau de mobilidade e a partir dessa variável foi calculada a proporção de sucesso. Avaliou-se também: a quantidade de placa, altura de inserção, grau de sensibilidade e período de observação. RESULTADOS: os resultados obtidos demonstraram que não houve diferença estatisticamente significativa para o grau de mobilidade e proporção de sucesso entre os mini-implantes inseridos em septos de largura mesiodistal crítica e não crítica. A proporção de sucesso total encontrada foi de 90% e nenhuma variável demonstrou estar relacionada ao insucesso dos mini-implantes. No entanto, observou-se maior sensibilidade nos pacientes cujos mini-implantes apresentavam mobilidade, e que a falha desses dispositivos de ancoragem ocorria logo após sua inserção.

Os experimentos in vitro foram conduzidos com plantas juvenis, sendo um trabalho realizado para a indução de organogênese a partir de segmentos radiculares com BAP, TDZ e cinetina (10µM, combinados com AIA (0,01µM, e outro para a indução do enraizamento de brotações pela permanência em meio de cultura com 25mg.L-1 de AIB e posterior transferência para outro meio de cultura isento de reguladores de crescimento e com carvão ativado. Em todos os experimentos de estaquia de caule, mergulhia e alporquia, não ocorreu a formação de raízes. Apenas na estaquia de raiz houve organogênese, onde as melhores respostas de brotação e enraizamento foram obtidas com as estacas de maior diâmetro e na posição vertical. A organogênese também foi observada em segmentos radiculares in vitro, com uma grande proliferação de calos e gemas induzida pelo uso de TDZ mais AIA. Ao contrário do observado a campo, as brotações caulinares in vitro enraizaram com uma taxa de 66%, com uma emissão média de 4,7 raízes por brotação, mostrando ser uma técnica promissora de clonagem do caquizeiro.

    Full Text Available A compactação do solo é um problema comum nas lavouras e que influi tanto no crescimento e na produtividade das culturas, como na conservação do solo e da água. A fim de estudar esse problema, cinco espécies de plantas de adubação verde de inverno (ervilhaca, nabo forrageiro, tremoço branco, aveia preta e aveia branca foram cultivadas em quatro perfis de solo com crescentes níveis de compactação em subsuperfície (Ds: 1,31, 1,43, 1,58 e 1,70 Mg m-3. O experimento foi realizado em vaso e sob condição de casa de vegetação na FCA/UNESP, em Botucatu (SP, em 1998, utilizando um LE de textura média. Com o aumento da compactação do solo, o comprimento e a matéria seca das raízes aumentaram acima da camada compactada e diminuíram abaixo dela, concentrando o sistema radicular das plantas próximo à superfície. O diâmetro radicular médio do tremoço e das duas aveias aumentou na camada compactada com o aumento da densidade do solo, diminuiu para o caso da ervilhaca e não se alterou para o caso do nabo. O nabo forrageiro e a aveia preta sobressaíram-se com maiores valores de densidade de comprimento radicular na camada compactada e inferior e no vaso como um todo, mesmo com o aumento da compactação. Concluiu-se, neste estudo, que o nabo forrageiro e a aveia preta apresentaram-se como bons materiais, para melhorar as características de solos com compactação subsuperficial, mostrando vigor no crescimento de raízes dentro e abaixo da camada compactada do solo, devendo-se, entretanto, validar estes resultados no campo, em condições diferentes de clima e solo.

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available A palato-radicular groove (PRG is a developmental anomaly primarily found in the maxillary lateral incisors. It is a potential communication path between the root canal and the periodontium that decreases the survival prognosis of the affected tooth, therefore compromising the stability of the dental structure in the oral cavity. The aim of this case report is to present an original technique where a PRG was treated by means of intracanal disinfection, PRG sealing with glass ionomer, replantation with intentional horizontal 180 degree rotation of the tooth, and an aesthetic veneer placed to provide adequate tooth morphology. The clinical and biological benefits of this novel technique are presented and discussed.

    Full Text Available Epidural injections are commonly used in the treatment of chronic low back pain due to symptomatic lumbar spinal disorders. The aim of the present investigation was to study their therapeutic value for different age subgroups. A consecutive series of 356 patients were treated with at least one injection, and assessed before and after injection. Significant pain reduction was observed in all age groups following a series of injections with the greatest reduction after the first one. Especially in patients younger than 50 years, pain medication could be reduced substantially. Surgery was performed in 19.4% of patients (n=69 following a series of SSPDA injections. In the current study, interlaminar steroid injections for treatment of chronic low back and radicular pain caused sufficient improvement and significant reduction of medication especially in younger patients.

    Three groups of 10 extracted endodontically treated mandibular molars were mounted in acrylic resin. The occlusal surface was reduced until a 4 mm pulp chamber height remained. A peripheral shelf 2 mm deep and 1.4 mm wide was placed on one group, while four TMS Minim pins were placed 45 degrees to the long axis of the tooth into the facial and lingual walls of the second group. The final group served as the control and had no further treatment. All teeth were then restored with amalgam. An Instron testing machine was used to apply a controlled force to the beveled amalgam at a crosshead speed of 2 mm/min until fracture occurred. A peripheral shelf did not improve the fracture resistance of the coronal-radicular restorations tested. The specimens with semihorizontal pins were significantly stronger than specimens from the other groups. Placement of pins into the pulp chamber is recommended when adequate dentin remains.

    Plasma cell tumors are lymphoid neoplastic proliferations of B cells. Multiple myeloma is the disseminated type of this disorder, while localized forms of plasma cell neoplasms are solitary plasmacytoma of bone that is observed as centrally localized in bones, and extramedullar plasmacytoma (EMP) that develops in soft tissues. EMP of the head and neck region is a rare malignant tumor comprising approximately 3% of all plasma cell tumors, and approximately 0.4% of all head and neck malignancies; among them, plasmacytoma of the maxilla is extremely rare. The authors present a case of a patient affected by an EMP of the maxilla simulating a maxillary radicular cyst comparing our results with the recent literature. EMP entity requires a meticulous overview of the patient by the specialist and overall the control of any signs or symptoms of systemic diseases, a fact that would mark a dramatic change in the treatment and prognosis for the patient.

    Although juxtafacet cysts of the lumbar spine are being reported with increasing frequency, hemorrhage from a ganglion cyst is rare, and the pathophysiologic mechanism of the hemorrhage from the cyst is still unclear. A 75-year-old male presented with sudden radicular leg pain caused by hemorrhage from the ganglion cyst. Computed tomography revealed bony erosion of vertebral body and multiple punched-out lesions on facets. Magnetic resonance imaging showed the neural structure was compressed by a sharply delineating mass. Capsule and old hematoma with elastic consistency that extended to the epidural space were removed through a paramedian transforaminal approach, which led to the resolution of the patient's symptoms. Histopathologically, chronic inflammation with neovascularization and myxoid degeneration were present in the capsule. Alcian blue staining demonstrated the mixture of mucin and hematoma. The probable pathogenesis of hemorrhage from the cyst was discussed from the unique histopathological findings of surgical specimen.

    This study proposed to investigate aspects of cell proliferation and death in the epithelium of radicular (RCs) and dentigerous (DCs) cysts. Serial sections of 17 RCs and 9 DCs were prepared for immunohistochemical detection of caspase-3, Bcl-2, and Ki-67 antigens. Caspase-3 was detected mainly in the suprabasal and superficial epithelial cells of RCs and DCs, whereas Ki-67 was detected predominantly in the basal layer. Both markers had significant expression in hyperplastic epithelium related to an intense inflammation in the capsule. Immunoreactivity for Bcl-2 was restricted to the basal layer and was significantly higher in atrophic epithelium of DCs than that of RCs. These results suggest that epithelial proliferation is balanced by apoptosis and that the presence of inflammation inhibits the Bcl-2 expression. DCs and RCs have different formation mechanisms but have similar biological behavior in the presence of intense inflammatory infiltrate. Copyright © 2011 American Association of Endodontists.

    We present a case of a 20-year-old woman presenting initially with an asymptomatic palatal swelling. Radiographic examination showed a cyst at the right maxilla with bucco-lingual expansion and perforation of palatal bone. Incisional biopsy was carried out via a buccal approach and the result revealed a benign odontogenic cyst, in keeping with radicular cyst. The patient was then scheduled for cyst enucleation. During the procedure, it was found that the palatal lesion was unrelated to the maxillary cyst. Incisional biopsy of the palatal mass was carried out and revealed a low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma. The patient then had a partial maxillectomy with fibula flap reconstruction. There was no recurrence at postoperative 1 year follow-up and she was rehabilitated with dental implants.

    Clinical symptoms of hyperparathyroidism are generally nausea, vomiting, fatigue, constipation, and hypotonicity of the muscles and ligaments; bone pain and tenderness are also seen but are more common in secondary hyperparathyroidism. We report a histologically confirmed case of a 28-year-old man whose sole symptom of primary hyperparathyroidism was lower extremity radicular pain due to a vertebral brown tumor. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated brown tumor to be hyperintense on T2-weighted and slightly hypointense on T1-weighted sequences; it showed intense contrast enhancement with gadolinium. Because brown tumors usually contain hemosiderin a short T2 should have been expected, but this was not seen in our case. Healing resulted in decreasing contrast enhancement on T1-weighted sequences and increasingly short T2. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a lumbar vertebral brown tumor associated with primary hyperparathyroidism. (orig.)

    2013-01-01

    The squamous odontogenic tumour is a rare benign neoplasm whose aetiology remains unknown. It usually appears in the jaw and its origin could be related to the ephitelial remnants of Malassez. Histologically comprises numerous islets of squamous, non-keratinized, well-differentiated and rounded epithelial cells a fibrous stroma without signs of atypical cells. There is a non-neoplastic lesion with the same histological pattern than the squamous odontogenic tumour. This entity is characterized by squamous odontogenic tumour proliferations isolated into the cyst wall of an odontogenic cyst. It is rare and has a benign behavior. It has been suggested that these epithelial proliferations could be the former expression of the neoplastic form. It is very important to carry out clinical and radiological controls periodically. So far it has not been documented any change towards a squamous odontogenic tumour nor toward malignancy in a squamous odontogenic tumour like proliferation. Key words:Radicular cyst, squamous odontogenic tumour. PMID:24455099

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the fracture resistance of simulated immature teeth after different intra-radicular treatments. Crowns and roots of bovine incisors were cut transversally and removed to simulate immature teeth. Root canal preparation and flaring were performed using a bur in crown-apex and apex-crown direction. The samples were distributed into 5 groups (n=10): Positive control (PoC) - no root canal flaring or filling; Negative control (NeC) - teeth were sectioned and their root canals were flared; Direct anatomical glass fiber post (RaP) - #2 Reforpost main glass fiber post relined with composite resin; Double tapered conical glass fiber posts (ExP) - #3 Exacto glass fiber post; and #2 Reforpost main glass fiber + Reforpin accessory glass fiber posts (RrP). In RaP, ExP and RrP, 4.0-mm apical plugs were done with MTA Angelus. The specimens were embedded in polystyrene resin inside cylinders and the periodontal ligament was simulated with a polyether-based impression material. The specimens were submitted to compressive fracture strength test (0.5 mm/min at 135° relative to the long axis of the tooth) in a servo-hydraulic mechanical testing machine MTS 810. Data were subjected to one-way ANOVA and Dunnett's C or Tukey's tests (α=0.05). The control groups (PoC and NeC) showed lower fracture strength than the experimental groups. NeC presented the lowest resistance and ExP presented the highest resistance among the experimental groups. The flaring procedures produced a detrimental effect on the fracture resistance of the bovine teeth. Glass fiber intra-radicular posts increased significantly the fracture resistance of simulated immature teeth.

    The objective of this study was to experimentally induce inflammatory cysts in an animal model so as to test the hypothesis that radicular cysts develop via the "abscess pathway." Twenty-eight perforated custom-made Teflon cages were surgically implanted into defined locations in the back of 7 Sprague Dawley rats. A week after the implantation of the cages, a known quantity of freshly grown, close allogeneic oral keratinocytes in phosphate buffer solution (PBS) was injected into each cage. One cage per animal was treated as the control that received only epithelial cells. The remaining 3 cages of each animal were trials. Seven days post epithelial cell inoculation; a suspension of 0.2 mL of Fusobacterium nucleatum (10(8) bacteria per mL) was injected into each of the 3 trial cages. Two, 12, and 24 weeks after the inoculation of the bacteria, the cages were taken out, and the tissue contents were fixed and processed by correlative light and transmission electron microscopy. Sixteen of the 21 trial cages could be processed and yielded results. Inoculations of epithelial cells followed 1 week later by F. nucleatum into tissue cages resulted in the development inflammatory cysts in 2 of the 16 cages. The 2 cages contained a total of 4 cystic sites. None of the control cages showed the presence of any cyst-like pathology. Inflammatory cysts were induced by initiating acute inflammatory foci (abscess/necrotic area) by bacterial injection that got enclosed by a proliferating epithelium. This finding provides strong experimental evidence in support of the "abscess theory" of development of radicular cysts.

    The development of external cervical root resorption following internal bleaching of discoloured pulpless teeth is associated with the use of hydrogen peroxide. The aim of the study was to determine radicular penetration of hydrogen peroxide following intracoronal bleaching with various forms of sodium perborate. 63 extracted human incisors were root filled and stained artificially. Standardized cementum defects were created on the mesial and distal aspects of the root directly below the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ). Using the walking bleach technique all teeth were bleached for a 6-day period, with replacement of the bleaching paste after days 1 and 3. Sodium perborate monohydrate (MH), trihydrate (TRH) or tetrahydrate (TH) was mixed with H2O2 or H2O and subsequently placed intracoronally 1 mm below the labial CEJ. The teeth were divided into six groups: I. MH + H2O2(30%) (n = 12); II. TRH + H2O2(30%) (n = 12); III. TH + H2O2(30%) (n = 12); IV. TH + H2O (n = 12); V. TH + H2O, gel (n = 12); VI. no bleaching paste (n = 3). At baseline and at days 1, 3 and 6 the amount of H2O2 taken up from the surrounding medium of each root was indirectly recorded and calculated as p.p.m. Almost all teeth of the experimental groups showed leakage of hydrogen peroxide compared to those of the control group. The radicular penetration of hydrogen peroxide was significantly higher in teeth of groups I and III than in those of groups IV and V (P sodium perborate used.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

    Radicular cysts associated with the deciduous dentition are rare. The literature is sparse regarding cysts associated with primary incisor teeth, which is surprising given the frequency with which these teeth are traumatized. Most cases reported involve molar teeth associated with apical infection following on from caries. A case of a 3-year-old boy who developed a large radicular cyst associated with a previously traumatized upper primary incisor is reported.

Ao final, os dentes foram clivados em seu longo eixo, metalizados e levados ao MEV. Os resultados mostraram que não houve diferença entre os terços analisados, independente das técnicas ou das soluções. Frente à solução de hipoclorito, no terço médio e análise global (independente do terço, o sistema K3 mostrou melhores resultados. No terço apical não houve diferença estatística. Não houve diferença estatística entre as técnicas no terço médio, apical e global, quando irrigados com a Clorexidina. A análise das técnicas de instrumentação, independentes das soluções e dos terços mostrou não haver diferença estatística. A clorexidina se mostrou superior ao hipoclorito no terço médio independente da técnica de instrumentação e no terço apical as duas soluções se equipararam. This study compared the efficiency of rotary and manual-mechanical instrumentation with variations in the auxiliary chemical in the middle and apical thirds as to the presence of smear layer. The study was conducted on 95 human teeth. As a control 15 teeth were divided into 3 groups. The other teeth were according to the study conditions: manual-mechanical instrumentation; rotary instrumentation with the ProTaper; RaCe and the K3. Each of these groups was employed: 0. 12% chlorhexidine gluconate and 1% sodium hypochlorite. Each tooth was analyzed by MEV. Analysis of the results revealed no difference between the middle and apical thirds, regardless of the techniques or solutions. When the sodium hypochlorite solution was used, concerning the middle third the K3 exhibited better results. The apical third and global performance did not present statistical difference. With regard to the chlorhexidine, global analysis of the middle and apical third did not reveal statistical difference. Assessment of the instrumentation techniques, regardless of the irrigants and thirds, as to the presence of smear layer, did not exhibit statistical difference. Chlorhexidine was statistically better than sodium hypochlorite at the middle third, whereas at the apical third both solutions were statistically similar.

    The aim of the study was to determine the apoptotic features and proliferation potential of odontogenic keratocysts compared with ameloblastomas and radicular cysts by analysing the role of bax, bcl-2, and Ki-67. The study material consisted of 20 odontogenic keratocysts, 20 radicular cysts, and 20 ameloblastomas. Immunohistochemically, bax, bcl-2 and Ki-67 were applied. The positive cells were evaluated in both neoplastic/nonneoplastic odontogenic epithelium and connective tissue cells. Ameloblastoma showed stronger bcl-2 expression than odontogenic keratocysts and radicular cysts. Bcl-2 expression in the whole thickness of epithelium and connective tissue of odontogenic keratocyst was significantly higher than radicular cyst. The expression of bax in the epithelium of radicular cyst was significantly higher than odontogenic keratocyst and ameloblastoma. The lining epithelium of odontogenic keratocyst showed stronger Ki-67 expression than ameloblastoma and radicular cyst. The proliferation potential of the epithelium and the overexpression of various anti-apoptotic proteins in odontogenic epithelial tumors are quite significant for their clinical behaviour. High expressions of bcl-2 and Ki-67 in odontogenic keratocysts accord with their aggressive clinical behaviour and a high recurrence rate.

    To report a rare case of large radicular cyst-associated deciduous tooth and to discuss the importance of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in diagnosing the condition. Radicular cyst is the most common cyst affecting the permanent teeth, but its occurrence in deciduous teeth is rare. Most of the radicular cysts are asymptomatic and are discovered accidentally when radiographs are taken. Conventional radiographs show two-dimensional images of three-dimensional objects. Cone beam computed tomography provides undistorted three-dimensional information of hard tissues and gives adequate spatial resolution. A 7-year-old child, with a complaint of swelling in the maxillary anterior region, was diagnosed with radicular cyst in relation to primary maxillary right central incisor based on CBCT and histopathological features. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment of radicular cyst in primary dentition is important to prevent damage to permanent tooth. Mahesh BS, Shastry SP, Murthy PS, Jyotsna TR.

    Therapeutic approach to jaw cysts may depend on their dimensions and localization. Enucleation of cystic lesion is not always preferable in the first act, especially if large cysts are in close proximity to important anatomical structures. The aim of this paper was to present the outcome of the treatment protocol comprising preoperative decompression and subsequent enucleation of a large maxillary cyst. A 21-year-old male patient with large asymptomatic radicular cyst in the right maxillary sinus was presented to our clinic. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) showed a large cyst, which perforated the right anterior maxillary wall by 1.5 cm, and was in the intimate contact with the orbital floor. Surgical treatment of the cystic lesion comprised: preoperative decompression with biopsy in the first act and enucleation, performed under general anesthesia, 6 months after the observation period. Decompression with subsequent enucleation proved to be effective treatment of large radicular cyst in maxillary sinus with low-morbidity.

    Radicular cysts are inflammatory jaw cysts confined to the apices of teeth with infected and necrotic pulp. They arise from the epithelial residues in the periodontal ligament as a result of inflammation, following the death of pulp. The treatment of such lesions vary with regard to their sizes; the small cystic lesions heal after an endodontic therapy, but larger lesions, may require additional treatment. Apical surgery for radicular cysts generally involves apical root resection and sealing with endodontic material. This case report, describes the treatment of a cyst related to the maxillary central and lateral incisors using platelet rich fibrin along with synthetic nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite granules for the regeneration of lost tissues. A follow-up evaluation at 6 months and 1-year revealed a significant radiographic bone fill with satisfactory healing at the surgical site.

    To investigate the effects of radicular dentin treatments of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) on the regional root canal bonding interface of quartz fiber posts using 2 luting materials with SEM analysis. Nine intact maxillary central incisors were sectioned and endodontically treated. Standardized post space preparations and acid etch were performed. All specimens were randomly divided into 3 groups (n = 3). D.T.LIGHT posts were placed into the root canal using one of three radicular dentin treatments (0.9% NaCl for 60 s, 10% NaOCl for 60 s, 17% EDTA for 60 s followed by 5.25% NaOCl for 60 s) in combination of one of two luting materials (DuoLink, LuxaCore) respectively (factorial design). Cervical, middle, apical sections of each teeth are used for SEM study and spectroscopy of dispersion energy (EDS) microanalysis. With the radicular dentin treatment with 10% NaOCl alone or with 17% EDTA followed by 5.25% NaOCl, longer and increased number of penetration of resin tags into the dentinal tubules were observed at the resin-dentin interfaces, and adhesive lateral branches could be found easily. EDS microanalysis showed increase in the infiltration behavior of the luting cement. Radicular dentin treatments provide good resin infiltration, which can produce a three-dimensional interlocking micronetwork of resin tags in the dentin tubules with multiple lateral branches that penetrate the intertubular dentin, thus positively influence the adhesion between dentin and the luting materials.

    [Purpose] This study investigated the relationship between pain intensity, lumber disability, and psychological factors in patients with low back pain. [Subjects and Methods] A total of 166 outpatients (116 female, 50 male) with chronic low back pain presenting for physical therapy participated in this study. Patients were divided into two groups: those with low back pain alone and those with both low back pain and radicular pain. Pain intensity and lumbar disability were measured using a visual analogue scale and the Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire. Psychological factors, such as self-efficiency, fear avoidance, and depression were measured using the Chronic Pain Self-efficacy Scale, Fear-Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire, and Beck Depression Index, respectively. [Results] Patients with low back pain with radicular pain had greater pain and lumber disability and lower psychological factors compared with patients with chronic low back pain alone. [Conclusion] Our findings indicate the presence of low back pain with radicular pain is more related to pain, LBP disability index, Back performance, Self-efficiency (Pain, Function, Symptom), Fear-avoidance (body, work) and depression factors than low back pain. Considering the relationships between in pain, LBP disability index, Back performance, Self-efficiency (Pain, Function, Symptom), Fear-avoidance (body, work) and depression factors in patients with low back pain, therapeutic intervention for not only pain and dysfunction, but also psychological factors is needed.

    Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) created by Choukroun's protocol concentrates most platelets and leukocytes from a blood harvest into a single autologous fibrin biomaterial. However, no current data is available concerning the use of PRF for the treatment of periapical lesions. Two cases of radicular cysts were reported using an interdisciplinary approach, including regular endodontic therapy followed by surgical management with PRF and bioactive glass. Two cases of radicular cysts presented as an incidental radiographic finding, appearing as an apical radiolucency with well-circumscribed sclerotic borders. After regular endodontic retreatment, cystic lining/granulation tissues were enucleated and the periradicular bony defect was grafted using PRF and bioactive glass. Then, PRF was applied to serve as a membrane over the grafted defects. Recall periapical radiographs of Case 1 and cone beam computer tomography of Case 2 showed satisfactory healing of the periapical pathosis. In Case 2, the bony defect appeared completely healed at 4 months surgical reentry and the new bone was clinically very dense and mature. The results of these case reports show that the combination of PRF and bioactive glass is an effective modality of regenerative treatment for radicular cysts. Copyright © 2012.

    We demonstrated a combination of pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) and cervical nerve root block (CNRB) via a posterior approach was superior to a transforaminal epidural steroid injection through the anterolateral approach for cervical radicular pain in a previous study. This randomized trial was conducted to determine the comparative efficacy between CNRB, PRF, and CNRB + PRF for cervical radicular pain. A prospective and randomized design was used in this study. Sixty-two patients were randomized into three parallel groups: CNRB, PRF, or CNRB + PRF. Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) was used to measure pain intensity, and global perceived effect (GPE) was scored by the patient on a 7-point scale, ranging from much worse (-3), no change (0), to total improvement (+3). The outcomes were evaluated at 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months. Side effects and complications were noted. The NRS was significantly reduced in all three groups 1 week after the treatments (P 0.05). No serious complications were observed in any of the patients. Combining CNRB and PRF appeared to be a safe and efficacious technique for cervical radicular pain. The combination therapy yielded better outcomes than either CNRB or PRF alone. © 2016 World Institute of Pain.

  7. The effects of various irrigating solutions on intra-radicular dentinal surface: An SEM analysis

    Full Text Available Aim: The action of irrigant solutions on intra- radicular dentinal surface were evaluated in an in vitro setting using a scanning electron microscope (SEM and it was observed that sodium hypochlorite and MTAD produced the cleanest surface and that none of the irrigants were able to produce an ideal preparation of the dentinal surface when used individually. The primary objective of endodontic therapy is to achieve a clean, optimal environment in root canals to avoid unsuccessful treatment outcomes. The complexities of the root canal system necessitate the use of irrigating solutions which act on radicular dentin surface, modifying it. The action of irrigants can be beneficial, and yet at the same time, as they modify the surface structure of dentin, they can have an adverse impact on the properties of dentin. The present study was undertaken to assess the effect of various irrigants on the dentinal surface using an SEM. Materials and Methods: Forty-five roots were randomly divided into nine groups (n=5 and prepared by sectioning at the level of cemento-enamel junction (CEJ and 10 mm from the CEJ and split longitudinally. The dentin surface was prepared and the cemental surfaces were coated with double layer of varnish. The irrigants tested were normal saline, de-ionized water, 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA, 5% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl, 5% NaOCl with ultrasonic agitation, 3% hydrogen peroxide, 2% chlorhexidine (CHX, MTAD, and MTAD with ultrasonic agitation. The prepared samples were placed in the irrigant solution for 3 min, subsequently dehydrated, sputter coated, and observed under SEM. The images were subsequently analyzed for dentinal surface changes. Results: 17% EDTA and MTAD produced the cleanest dentinal surface. Ultrasonic agitation enhanced the effect of irrigants. 5% NaOCl and 3% hydrogen peroxide were efficient at removal of organic debris, but were unable to remove the smear layer.

    Full Text Available A growing body of empirical research has confirmed an association between chronic pain and cognitive dysfunction. The aim of the present study was to determine whether cognitive function is affected in patients with a diagnosis of chronic neuropathic or radicular pain relative to healthy control participants matched by age, gender, and years of education. We also examined the interaction of pain with age in terms of cognitive performance. Some limitations of previous clinical research investigating the effects of chronic pain on cognitive function include differences in the pain and cognitive scale materials used, and the heterogeneity of patient participants, both in terms of their demographics and pathological conditions. To address these potential confounds, we have used a relatively homogenous patient group and included both experimental and statistical controls. We have also specifically investigated the interaction effect of pain and age on cognitive performance. Patients (n = 38 and controls (n = 38 were administered a battery of cognitive tests measuring IQ, spatial and verbal memory, attention, and executive function. Educational level, depressive symptoms, and state anxiety were assessed as were medication usage, caffeine, and nicotine consumption to control for possible confounding effects. Both the level of depressive symptoms and the state anxiety score were higher in chronic pain patients than in matched control participants. Chronic pain patients had a lower estimated IQ than controls, and showed impairments on measures of spatial and verbal memory. Attentional responding was altered in the patient group, possibly indicative of impaired inhibitory control. There were significant interactions between chronic pain condition and age on a number of cognitive outcome variables, such that older patients with chronic pain were more impaired than both age-matched controls and younger patients with chronic pain. Chronic pain did not appear

    Full Text Available Intradural disc herniation is a rare pathological entity. Normally, it is associated with severe neurological deficits, including compression syndrome of the spinal cord or cauda equina. Intradural disc herniations comprise 0.26% to 030% of all herniated discs. Overall, 5% are found in the thoracic region, 3% in the cervical region, and 92% in the lumbar region. Although intradural disc herniation may be suspected preoperatively because of myelography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging results, establishing the diagnosis before surgery is difficult. We report a patient with thoracic intradural disc herniation at T11-12 who presented with left radicular pain and left drop foot. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and myelography failed to demonstrate an intradural lesion. The patient underwent T11-L1 dorsal hemilaminectomy with lateral extension to the left side. The herniation was identified only intraoperatively during inspection of the thecal sac. The disc was removed surgically, and the operation was performed safely under intraoperative spinal cord monitoring. The patient had a good neurological recovery. She remains pain-free 2 years after the surgery.

    Caudal epidural steroid injection is a very common intervention in treatment of low back pain and sciatica symptoms. Although extensively used, it is not devoid of complications. A few reports of chemical and infective arachnoiditis exist following lumbar epidural anaesthesia, but none following a caudal epidural steroid injection.We report a case of arachnoiditis following caudal epidural steroid injections for lumbar radiculopathy. The patient presented with contralateral sciatica, worsening low back pain and urinary retention few days following the injection, followed by worsening motor functions in L4/L5/S1 myotomes with resultant dense foot drop. Gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging suggested infective arachnoiditis with diffuse enhancement and clumping of the nerve roots within the lumbar and sacral thecal sac. As the number of injections in the management of back pain and lumbo-sacral radicular pain is increasing annually, it is imperative to have a thorough understanding of this potentially dangerous complication and educate the patients appropriately.

    Metallothionein (MT) is a protein correlated with cellular differentiation and proliferation, as well as with the inhibition of apoptosis. The aims were to report and to compare the MT expression in odontogenic cysts and keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KOT); to correlate the MT with cellular proliferation; and to evaluate the influence of the inflammation in MT. Nine cases of radicular cyst (RC), nine dentigerous cyst (DC), four orthokeratinized odontogenic cyst (OOC), and eight KOT were submitted to immunohistochemistry using anti-MT and anti-Ki-67. Indexes of MT (IMT) and Ki-67 (IK) were obtained. Lesions were grouped according to inflammation: mild-to-moderate (group A) and intense (group B). IMT proved to be highest in RC (91%), followed by DC (89%), KOT (78%), and OOC (63%). IMT was inversely correlated with IK in KOT, and OCC, but was positively correlated with RC and DC. No differences in IMT and in IK could be observed between groups A and B. The higher IMT found in RC and DC compared to OCC and KOT, as well as the differences between the last ones, is possibly correlated with their different histopathological features and clinical behavior. In RC and DC, MT may play a role in cellular proliferation. However, it seems that MT is either less or is not related to proliferation in OOC and in KOT. Moreover, inflammation does not seem to alter IMT and IK. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

    Radicular (RC) and dentigerous cysts (DC) can show a range from little to quite extensive primary/secondary inflammation and it is possible that the variation seen in the fibrous capsule of these cysts might reflect differences in the osteolytic activity. Moreover, the presence of hemorrhagic areas in the fibrous capsule of DC could also contribute to the increase in osteolytic activity. The aim of this study was to compare immunohistochemical expression of nuclear factor κappaB (RANK), RANK ligand (RANKL), and osteoprotegerin (OPG), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and angiogenic index in RC and DC. These proteins were evaluated in 20 RC and DC by immunohistochemistry. Angiogenic index was determined by microvessel count (MVC) using anti-von Willebrand factor antibody. RANK and RANKL were higher in DC than RC in fibrous capsule. RC showed higher expression of VEGF in the epithelium and capsule. DC exhibited higher MVC than RC. Ours results suggest that RANK and RANKL play an important role in bone resorption in DC and the hemorrhagic areas in the capsule of DC could be explained by increased vessel's number. The higher VEGF expression in RC might be related to nature of these lesions, where the inflammatory process contributes significantly to these findings. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the immunohistochemical expression of transforming growing factor beta (TGF-β) and interferon gamma (IFN-γ) between radicular cysts (RCs) and dentigerous cysts (DCs). Twenty RCs and DCs were selected for analysis of the immunoexpression of TGF-β and IFN-γ in the epithelium and capsule. The cell reactivity of TGF-β and IFN-γ in the lining epithelium and capsule of RCs showed no significant differences when compared with DCs (P > .05). There was a tendency of a higher expression of TGF-β in the capsule of DCs. Our results showed the presence of TGF-β and IFN-γ in RCs and DCs, supporting the hypothesis that both participate in the development of these lesions, where IFN-γ usually plays a role in bone resorption, which is counterbalanced by the osteoprotective activity performed by TGF-β.

    Full Text Available Study Design. Quasiexperimental study. Objective. To investigate whether radiofrequency treatment can preclude the need for spinal surgery in both the short term and long term. Background. Radiofrequency is commonly used to treat lumbosacral radicular pain. Only few studies have evaluated its effects on surgical indications. Methods. We conducted a quasiexperimental study of 43 patients who had been scheduled for spinal surgery. Radiofrequency was indicated for 25 patients. The primary endpoint was the decision of the patient to reject spinal surgery 1 month and 1 year after treatment (pulsed radiofrequency of dorsal root ganglion, 76%; conventional radiofrequency of the medial branch, 12%; combined technique, 12%. The primary endpoint was the decision of the patient to reject spinal surgery 1 month and 1 year after treatment. In addition, we also evaluated adverse effects, ODI, NRS. Results. We observed after treatment with radiofrequency 80% of patients rejected spinal surgery in the short term and 76% in the long term. We conclude that radiofrequency is a useful treatment strategy that can achieve very similar outcomes to spinal surgery. Patients also reported a very high level of satisfaction (84% satisfied/very satisfied. We also found that optimization of the electrical parameters of the radiofrequency improved the outcome of this technique.

    Full Text Available As estruturas de controle comumente utilizadas nas tomadas de água dos canais de irrigação não permitem a distribuição da quantidade correta de água, favorecendo o desperdício e, consequentemente, reduzindo a eficiência no uso da água. O objetivo deste trabalho foi determinar o desempenho de um regulador automático de vazão no controle da vazão derivada. Para tanto, um exemplar do equipamento, construído em fibra de vidro, foi instalado na lateral de um canal de concreto do Laboratório de Hidráulica da Universidade Federal de Viçosa, em Viçosa-MG. O equipamento foi avaliado em toda a sua faixa de operação, sendo que, em cada regulagem prefixada, determinou-se a vazão derivada com o nível da água a montante variando de 0,30 a 0,45 m. A variação média na vazão do regulador, considerando toda a sua faixa de operação, foi de ± 2,3% em relação às vazões médias fornecidas pelo equipamento em cada regulagem. A amplitude de variação na vazão fornecida foi pequena em relação aos equipamentos usualmente empregados no controle de vazão, em canais de irrigação, demonstrando que o regulador automático de vazão é um equipamento apropriado para a distribuição de água em redes de canais.The control structures commonly used in irrigation channels water intakes are inefficient in delivering the correct water volume to crops, collaborating to water waste and, hence, reducing the water use efficiency. The objective of this work was to determine the performance of an automatic discharge regulator in the control of the supplied discharge. The regulator was made of fiberglass and its evaluation was accomplished in a concrete channel belonging to the Hydraulic Laboratory of the Federal University of Viçosa, in Viçosa, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The evaluation was performed for all equipment discharge regulation options. In each regulation, the supplied discharge was determined for the upstream water level changing

O 14C-glyphosate foi aplicado na concentração de 1.440 g ha-1, distribuída uniformemente no terceiro e no quarto limbo foliar a partir do ápice caulinar, com radioatividade aproximada de 0,030 μCi. A absorção, translocação e exsudação radicular foram avaliadas pela radioatividade do 14C-glyphosate nos diferentes tecidos da planta, bem como na água de lavagem e solução nutritiva, nos intervalos de 0, 2, 8, 32 e 72 horas após a aplicação - HAA. A concentração de 14C-glyphosate na folha aplicada foi semelhante para os dois clones nas avaliações a partir de 8 HAA. Todavia, considerando a planta inteira, ela foi superior no clone 2277 em todas as épocas de avaliação. Maior quantidade de 14C-glyphosate foi verificada na água de lavagem da folha aplicada do clone 531, indicando menor absorção do herbicida nesse clone em relação ao 2277. Na parte aérea e no sistema radicular, a concentração do 14C-glyphosate foi semelhante entre os clones em todos os intervalos de avaliação, porém com concentrações maiores nas raízes. Pequena parte do total aplicado foi exsudada para solução nutritiva (valores entre 0,78 e 1,16%, não havendo diferença entre os clones quanto à translocação na planta e na exsudação radicular do herbicida. A absorção diferencial entre os clones, atribuída na maioria dos casos a diferenças na estrutura e composição da cutícula, pode ser uma possível explicação para a tolerância diferencial entre os genótipos.To evaluate absorption, translocation and radicular glyphosate exudation in two Eucalyptus sp. clones (2277 and 531, 14C-glyphosate at 1440 g ha-1 were distributed on the third and fourth leaf blade, under 0,030 μCi of radioactivity.

O potencial hídrico e o osmótico foram mensurados por psicrometria. O potencial de turgor foi estimado por diferença entre o potencial hídrico e o osmótico. Os resultados obtidos sugerem que a resistência ao movimento de água nas plântulas de cacau depende do fluxo transpiracional e que a variação dos gradientes do potencial hídrico na planta é determinada por temperaturas radiculares maiores de 30ºC. As trocas gasosas, a temperaturas radiculares diferentes, dependem do estado hídrico da planta.The effects of root temperature on water movement resistance were studied on cacao (Theobroma cacao L. cv Catongo seedlings under greenhouse conditions at root temperatures of 10, 20 30 and 40ºC, on leaves covered with aluminum foil and black plastic bags and on uncovered leaves. The leaves were located at the base, intermediates part and apex of the stem. Gas exchange measurements were done utilizing a LI-6000 portable photosynthetic system. Water and osmotic potential were measured by psychrometry. Turgor potential was estimated as the difference between water potential and osmotic potential. The results suggested that the resistance to water movement depends on the transpirational flux and that the water potential gradients across the plant vary at temperatures greater than 30ºC. Gas exchanges, at diferent root temperature, depend on the water status of the plant.

    The objective of this study was to determine the effects of combining pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) treatment and transforaminal epidural injection (TFEI) to treat patients with chronic refractory lumbar radicular pain caused by lumbar spinal stenosis. Randomized control trial. Interventional pain management practice. Sixty-two patients were assigned to the study groups (PRF group = 31; control group = 31). Under fluoroscopic guidance, the RF needle was positioned close to the lumbar dorsal root ganglion. The PRF group received 3 cycles of PRF treatment, and sensory stimulation without RF lesioning was applied to the control group. After PRF or sham lesioning, a local anesthetic with steroid was injected. The primary outcome of a successful response was defined as: 1) ≥50% or 4-point pain reduction in the numerical rating scale (NRS) without an increase in the Oswestry disability index (ODI) or medication quantification scale (MQS), or mean score <4 in the global perceived effect (GPE) scale; or 2) ≥30% or 2-point pain reduction in NRS with a simultaneous decrease in ODI, MQS, or ≥6 points in the GPE scale. The number of patients with successful treatment results was higher in the PRF group at 2 months (P = 0.032) and 3 months (P = 0.018). No significant differences were observed in terms of the secondary outcome variables between the 2 groups. The TFEI provided significant short-term pain relief and PRF can be applied in conjunction with TFEI to achieve higher treatment efficacy compared with TFEI alone. Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    In this study the potential presence of bacteria in radicular cyst (RC) and keratocystic odontogenic tumour(KCOT) fluids from clinically asymptomatic patients was investigated. Cyst fluids were collected by needle aspiration from 16 patients with asymptomatic osteolytic lesions (10 RCs and 6 KCOTs) undergoing surgery. All samples were transferred into tubes containing pre-reduced transport medium, delivered to the microbiology laboratory and processed within 1h. The cysts, surgically enucleated, were sent for standard histopathological examination. Cyst fluid samples were cultured on selective and differential media in anaerobic (for about 2 weeks) and aerobic (for 24-48 h) conditions to detect viable microorganisms. After incubation, the colonies were counted, Gram-stained and identified by biochemical tests. Cultures were positive for the presence of bacteria in 15 (9 RCs, 6 KCOTs) out of 16 cases. RCs and KCOTs generally yielded low bacterial counts (10(2)-10(4) CFU/ml) and were predominantly colonized by obligate anaerobes (64%), whereas less commonly by facultative anaerobes (36%). No significant differences in the detection frequencies of obligate and facultative anaerobes were evidenced between RCs and KCOTs. Propionibacterium acnes was the most common obligate anaerobe recovered both in RC and KCOT fluids. Among facultative anaerobes, Gemella morbillorum was more frequently isolated in KCOTs, whereas Staphylococcus spp. in RCs. Bacteria may be present and persist within fluids of clinically asymptomatic jaw cystic lesions. The influence of bacteria and latent bacterial infection within cystic jaw lesions should be reconsidered in odontogenic cyst progression. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    To identify retinoic acid-related orphan nuclear receptor-γT (RORγT), the specific markers of T helper 17 (Th17) cells by immunohistochemical analysis to confirm the presence of Th17 cells in periapical lesions. Eighteen radicular cysts (RCs) and 22 periapical granulomas (PGs) were collected in the Department of Oral Pathology after periapical surgery as the experimental samples. Five alveolar bone samples were obtained from a group of impacted third molars recommended for extraction as the control samples. The protein expression of RORγT was measured by immunohistochemical analysis for all samples. In addition, the protein expression of IL-17 was measured at the same time. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS 17.0 software package to evaluate the differences of expression of RORγT and IL-17 according to type of lesion (PG vs. RC vs. control group) and intensity of the inflammatory infiltration (mild vs. moderate vs. severe vs. control group). RORγT+ cells were detected in all periapical lesions tissues, and the expression of RORγT was significantly higher in periapical lesions than in normal tissues which had no expression of RORγT (P<0.05). Significant differences in the expression of RORγT were observed among healthy tissues, lesions with mild inflammation, moderate inflammation and severe inflammation (P<0.05), respectively. Positive correlations between RORγT and IL-17 protein levels were observed in PGs (r=0.935,P<0.05) and RCs (r=0.803,P<0.05), respectively. The results demonstrates a significant increase in the expression of RORγT in patients suffering from periapical lesions in comparison with normal control subjects, indicating that Th17 cells are more likely to exist in periapical lesions.

    Full Text Available Introdução: A tuberculose (TB infantil permanece como uma das doenças mais prevalentes e preocupantes no mundo, sobretudo em nações em desenvolvimento, onde as taxas são ainda mais elevadas e os casos descritos subestimados pela dificuldade em se estabelecer um diagnóstico definitivo. Dessa forma, este estudo tem como objetivo descrever o perfil clínico e epidemiológico dos pacientes com TB infantil pulmonar e extrapulmonar. Métodos: Foram avaliados retrospectivamente, através de questionário, pacientes com idade de até 15 anos, internados no Serviço de Pediatria do HCPA, no período de janeiro de 2002 a setembro de 2007.   Resultados: Dos 52 pacientes incluídos, 63% apresentavam TB pulmonar. Das formas extra-pulmonares, a meningoencefalite foi a mais prevalente (22%. Comorbidades foram dectadas em 31 (60% pacientes, dos quais 15 (29% apresentavam desnutrição grave, 9 (18% HIV positivo e 7 (13% pneumopatia crônica. Das manifestações clínicas, febre e tosse estavam presentes na maioria dos pacientes. O padrão radiológico predominante foi o de consolidação pulmonar (51%. A maioria dos pacientes referia história de contato com paciente bacilífero (64%. Conclusão: A TB pulmonar representa a principal forma de apresentação clínica da TB, sendo o diagnóstico feito de forma presuntiva na maioria dos casos. O diagnóstico baseado na comprovação bacteriológica foi obtido numa minoria de pacientes, demonstrando a importância dos achados clínico-laboratoriais, história epidemiológica e vacinal para o diagnóstico. Nesse sentido, a criação de escores tem se tornado uma ferramenta de fácil acesso e com razoável acurácia para auxiliar o diagnóstico de TB em serviços de baixa complexidade, especialmente o ambulatorial.

    Study Design A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial of patients with radicular low back pain who present to an emergency department (ED) within one week of pain onset. Objective: We hypothesized that a single intramuscular 160mg dose of methylprednisolone acetate would improve pain and functional outcomes one month after ED discharge if the corticosteroid were administered early in disease symptomotology. Summary of Background data Parenteral corticosteroids are not recommended for acute, radicular low back pain, though their role in this disease process is ill-defined. To date, this medication class has only been studied in a highly selected group of patients requiring hospitalization. Methods Adults between the ages of 21 and 50 who presented to an ED with low back pain and a positive straight leg raise test were enrolled. The primary outcome was change in pain intensity on an 11 point numerical rating scale one month after ED visit. Secondary outcomes one month after ED discharge included analgesic use, functional disability and adverse medication effects Results 637 patients were approached for participation, 133 were eligible, and 82 were randomized. Baseline characteristics were comparable between the groups. The primary outcome, a comparison of the mean improvement in pain intensity, favored methylprednisolone by 1.3 (p=0.10). Some secondary outcomes favored methylprednisolone, such as use of analgesic medication within the previous 24 hours (22% vs. 43%, 95%CI for difference of 20%: 0, 40%) and functional disability (19% vs. 49%, 95%CI for difference of 29%: 9, 49%). Adverse medication effects one week after ED discharge were reported by 32% of methylprednisolone and 24% of placebo patients (95%CI for difference of 9%: -12%, 30%). Conclusions This study was a negative study, though there was a suggestion of benefit of methylprednisolone acetate in a population of young adults with acute radicular low back pain.

    Radicular lingual grooves are morphological defects, which are found most frequently in maxillary anterior teeth and are a predisposing factor for periodontal disease. They are easily overlooked as aetiologic factors, as these grooves are covered by periodontal tissues. This case report presents a successful management of a case of a maxillary lateral incisor with an associated radicular lingual groove and severe periapical osseous destruction in a 30-year-old female patient. A combination of endodontic treatment, radiculoplasty to eliminate the radicular lingual groove, and periapical surgery to eliminate the periapical osseous defect was used. At two-year follow-up, the patient was comfortable and complete resolution of the periapical pathology was evident.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o desenvolvimento aéreo e radicular de duas cultivares de milho (Zea mays L., em solo submetido a quatro níveis de compactação. Utilizou-se um Latossolo Vermelho-Escuro distroférrico de textura média, em vasos montados com anéis de PVC sobrepostos, com diâmetro interno de 14,5 cm e altura de 35 cm. Os níveis de compactação utilizados em subsuperfície foram caracterizados pelas densidades do solo de 1,28, 1,42, 1,56 e 1,69 Mg m³. As cultivares de milho foram o híbrido AG-5011 e a variedade Sol da Manhã. Aos 40 dias após a emergência das plantas, determinaram-se as massas da matéria seca da parte aérea e das raízes, a densidade do comprimento radicular e o diâmetro médio radicular. A compactação do solo comprometeu o desenvolvimento das plantas de milho híbrido e da variedade na mesma intensidade. Apesar de alterar a distribuição do sistema radicular ao longo do perfil do solo, o impedimento físico em subsuperfície não diminuiu a produção total de raízes de milho. O diâmetro médio radicular apresentou alta correlação com o crescimento de raízes no solo compactado. O sistema radicular do milho não é capaz de romper uma camada compactada de solo com resistência mecânica da ordem de 1,4 MPa.

    Background: Root morphology is of utmost importance to endodontic sciences. Since there are a few studies on the morphology of mandibular second molars' roots, and some anatomical variables are not evaluated before, the aim of this study was to investigate thoroughly radicular anatomy of this tooth. Materials and Methods: This ex vivo study was performed on 150 intact mandibular second molars. After access cavity preparation and ensuring canal patency, Indian ink was injected into root canals from the orifices. The teeth became transparent using methyl salicylate storage. Then, they were inspected by an endodontist under a ×10 stereomicroscope regarding numerous root morphological variables. Data were analyzed using chi-square test and analysis of variance (α = 0.05). Results: About 86.7% of teeth had two roots and 13.3% were single-rooted (P = 0.0001), of which, 50% were C-shaped (6.7% of all teeth, P = 0.0001). 86.7% of mesial roots were double canalled, whereas 75.3% of distal roots were single canalled (P = 0.0001). 71.45% and 95.3% of the mesial and distal roots had one apical foramen, respectively (P = 0.0001). Apical foramens were mostly central followed by lingual in most cases. Distances between apical foramen and apical constriction ranged between 0.27 and 0.40 mm (P = 0.0545). Distances between apical foramen and root apices ranged between 0.30 and 0.47 mm (P = 0.0001). Vertucci classifications of mesial canals were Type II in 62.6% and Type IV in 37.4%. 86.2% of single-canal distal roots were Type I. 66.7% of double-canal distal roots were Type II and 33.3% were Type IV (P = 0.0001). The mean root lengths from cervical to apex of mesial, distal, and single roots were 14.02 ± 0.85 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 13.87–14.17), 13.35 ± 0.91 (95% CI = 13.19–13.50), and 14.25 ± 0.72 mm (95% CI = 13.91–14.58), respectively. The extents of canal curvatures varied between 20° and 31° buccolingually (P = 0.0000), and between 19° and 27

    Previous studies have demonstrated that the permeability changes due to the surface modification of dentin can be quantified via thermal imaging during dehydration. The CO2 laser has been shown to remove the smear layer and disinfect root canals. Moreover, thermal modification via CO2 laser irradiation can be used to convert dentin into a highly mineralized enamel-like mineral. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the radicular dentin surface modification after CO2 laser irradiation by measuring the permeability with thermal imaging. Human molar specimens (n=12) were sectioned into 4 axial walls of the pulp chamber and treated with either 10% NaClO for 1 minute, 5% EDTA for 1 minute, CO2 laser or none. The CO2 laser was operated at 9.4 μm with a pulse duration of 26 μs, pulse repetition rate of 300 Hz and a fluence of 13 J/cm2. The samples were dehydrated using an air spray for 60 seconds and imaged using a thermal camera. The resulting surface morphological changes were assessed using 3D digital microscopy. The images from digital microscopy confirmed melting of the mineral phase of dentin. The area enclosed by the time-temperature curve during dehydration, ▵Q, measured with thermal imaging increased significantly with treatments with EDTA and the CO2 laser (P<0.05). These results indicate that the surface modification due to CO2 laser treatment increases permeability of radicular dentin.

As doses de lodo de esgoto fresco (79,7 % de umidade utilizadas foram de 0, 38, 76 e 152 t ha-1, equivalentes a 0, 100, 200 e 400 kg ha-1 de N. Os tratamentos foram aplicados no sulco de plantio, adicionando-se 15 g por planta de KCl como fonte de K. A análise do sistema radicular foi efetuada doze meses após, por meio de trado e de trincheiras e com o auxílio de fotos digitais. Detectou-se que o sistema radicular de pupunheiras com um ano de campo estava concentrado nas camadas superficiais (acima de 75 % nos primeiros 20 cm, assim como em distâncias de até 0,5 m da base da planta. O lodo de esgoto modificou positivamente a densidade do solo, alterando também favoravelmente a densidade das raízes. Houve aumento na biomassa radicular proporcional às doses de lodo de esgoto, existindo uma relação direta daquela com a fitomassa aérea. Doses de lodo equivalentes a 200 e 400 kg de N contribuíram para aprofundar o sistema radicular e proporcionaram maior quantidade relativa de raízes finas.The effects of sewage sludge doses on the root system of peach palm were studied in a field experiment, in randomized complete blocks, carried out in Ubatuba, state of São Paulo, Brazil.

    Oral and injected steroids are used commonly in the treatment of cervical radicular pain despite a paucity of data demonstrating their efficacy. The purpose of this study is to assess whether the response to orally administered steroids among patients with acute cervical radicular pain who develop recurrent pain is associated with their subsequent response to cervical epidural steroid injections. Patients referred to our center were evaluated and then referred for cervical epidural steroid injections at the clinical discretion of the provider; those who met inclusion criteria were offered participation in the study. After the injection was administered, patients were contacted by telephone and asked to complete the Brief Pain Inventory Short Form at one week, one month, three months, and six months postinjection. Pain reduction after cervical steroid injection was not significantly different between 49 patients who reported pain reduction with a prior course of oral steroids and 22 patients who reported no pain reduction. Average pain scores decreased over six months (P steroid injection for cervical radicular pain. Of the 55 who provided baseline and six-month data, 14 (25.5%) reported complete relief at six months and 20 (36.4%) reported decreased pain. Patients can be reassured that they may experience pain reduction after a cervical epidural steroid injection even if oral steroid therapy was not effective. The majority of patients treated for cervical radicular pain with epidural steroid injection have reduced or absent pain for at least six months after treatment.

    Full Text Available Background: TNF-α is a multifunctional proinflammatory cytokine and TGF-β1 is a secretory protein controlling epithelial proliferation and differentiation. Keratocyst presents an aggressive behavior and a growth mechanism different from that of radicular cyst. Aim: In this line, the present study aimed at evaluating TNF-α and TGF-β1 level and its association with histopathological findings in the two odontogenic lesions of different origins. Materials and Methods: In this case-control study, aspirated fluid of 15 cases of radicular cyst and 15 cases of keratocyst were investigated using ELISA method. The grade of inflammation and the mean number of blood vessels in three microscopic fields were provided with a magnification of 40 times on microscope slides. T-test, x2, Mann Whitney, and Pearson correlation tests were used for the comparison of TNF-α and TGF-β1 levels in the mentioned lesions and the association between cytokine levels and grade of inflammation and angiogenesis.Results: TNF-α and TGF-β1 were observed in aspirated fluid of all radicular cysts and keratocysts. Levels of TNF-α and TGF-β1 were found to be 6.72 ± 2.985 and 5.882 ± 2.985 respectively in radicular cyst fluid and 24.759 ± 94.849 and 63.38 ± 30.069 in keratocyst fluid however, no statistically significant difference was observed in terms of TNF-α (P=0.450 increasing trend in TNF-α level in radicular cyst and keratocyst was accompanied by increased inflammation and angiogenesis (P<0.001 and P=0.001. Conclusion: TNF-α and TGF-β1 are involved in the pathogenesis of radicular cyst and keratocyst. TGF-β1 level was higher in radicular cyst when compared with keratocyst however, TNF-α level was similar in the two lesions. A positive correlation was found between TNF-α level and grade of inflammation and angiogenesis.

    ças estruturais observadas entre todas as raízes estudadas confirmam a inclusão da subtribo Catasetinae na tribo monofilética Cymbidieae. Algumas características radiculares são restritas a um ou dois táxons e podem ser úteis na taxonomia da subtribo. Por exemplo, a ocorrência de cristais flavonoídicos caracteriza os gêneros Catasetum e Cychnodes e o número de camadas do velame associado à forma das células do epivelame são úteis para confirmar a posição taxonômica de Clowesia amazônica. A presença de velame e de cristais flavonoídicos foi interpretada como adaptações ao hábito epifítico.

Este trabalho teve, como objetivo, avaliar a tolerância de E. grandiflorus ao Pb e sua capacidade de acumular e alocar o poluente e a relação dessas características com a anatomia radicular. Foram montados experimentos com plantas de E. grandiflorus expostas às seguintes concentrações de Pb em solução nutritiva: [0; 0,75; 1,5; 3,0 e 9,0 μM de Pb(NO32]. As plantas foram mantidas nessas condições, durante 60 dias. Avaliaram-se, ao final do experimento, a concentração de chumbo na biomassa das plantas e as modificações na anatomia radicular. As plantas de E. grandiflorus acumularam 113,74 mg Pb kg-1 de matéria seca com translocação reduzida para a parte aérea. As modificações no xilema radicular demonstraram aumento na capacidade de condução de água e nutrientes nas plantas expostas ao Pb. Constatou-se espessamento da exoderme e do córtex radicular; é provável que essas modificações estejam relacionadas com a maior alocação de Pb nas raízes. As plantas de Echinodorus grandiflorus são capazes de absorver e acumular Pb principalmente nas raízes; esta absorção é, por outro lado, modulada pela anatomia radicular.

    The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the therapeutic effect of transforaminal epidural steroid injection in patients with chronic low back pain and radicular leg pain due to lumbar disc herniation. This study included 80 patients (32 female and 48 male; mean age: 45.8 years [range: 25-65 years]) that received fluoroscopically guided transforaminal epidural steroid injections for chronic radicular low back pain due to lumbar disc herniation. All of the patients had diagnostic MRI findings and did not respond to conservative treatment. All injections were performed by the same physician at the interventional pain unit of a tertiary hospital. The effectiveness of transforaminal epidural steroid injections was assessed via a standardized telephone questionnaire administered 2 years after the first injection. Mean duration of radicular low back pain was 24.50 ± 18.25 months. Most of the epidural injections were administered at the L5 and S1 levels. The most effective post-injection period was the first 5.11 ± 3.07 months. Mean duration of injection effect was 12.46 ± 7.24 months. The response rate to the epidural steroid injections was 72%. There was negative correlation between the duration of treatment effect and the duration of pre-treatment symptoms. Additionally, clinical improvement of radicular low back pain increased significantly as the duration of pre-treatment symptoms decreased. Based on the present findings, we think that transforaminal epidural steroid injections can be used as an alternative treatment for managing chronic radicular low back pain.

Carioca, quando submetidos a diferentes níveis de boro em solução nutritiva. Através de um experimento inteiramente casualizado, foram realizados três tratamentos como se segue: T1 0,50 mg L-1 de boro (testemunha; T2 0,25 mg L-1 de boro (nível intermediário; T0 omisso em boro; sendo feitas amostragens em três estágios sucessivos de desenvolvimento da planta, no decorrer de seu ciclo. As alterações foram avaliadas efetuando-se secções longitudinais de ápices radiculares, sendo analisados comparativamente por meio de estudo cito-histológico com o emprego de microscópio de luz. Considerando como testemunha as plantas submetidas ao nível de 0,50 mg L-1 de boro na solução nutritiva, pôde-se verificar que a omissão desse micronutriente, na solução nutritiva, provocou inibição da divisão e alongamento celular, hipertrofia de células, desorganização de elementos vasculares em raiz, impedindo que a planta completasse seu ciclo, morrendo ao redor do 55o. dia após o transplante. O nível de 0,25 mg L-1 de boro, na solução nutritiva, embora tenha provocado desorganização no ápice radicular, não impediu o desenvolvimento da planta.The aim of this work was to study morphological changes in the growth of Phaseolus vulgaris L. cv.

    The purpose was to investigate by push-out tests and scanning electron microscopy (SEM)/energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) the effect, after first acid etching the post space walls, of three radicular dentine treatments on the regional bond strength of quartz fibre posts placed using two heavily filled resin luting cements. The crowns of 39 extracted maxillary central incisors were sectioned transversely 2 mm coronal to the labial cement-enamel junction and the roots endodontically treated. After standardized post space preparations and etching 15 s with 32% phosphoric acid, 36 roots were randomly divided into six equal groups. Quartz fibre posts (D.T. LIGHT-POST) were placed using three radicular dentine treatments (0.9% sodium chloride (NaCl) for 60 s, 10% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) for 60 s, 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) for 60 s followed by 5.25% NaOCl for 60 s) and two resin composite luting cements (ONE-STEP PLUS/DUO-LINK; ONE-STEP PLUS/LuxaCore Dual). Transverse segments (S1-S7), 1.00 mm (SD = 0.05 mm) thick, were sectioned from the coronal 8 mm of each root. Push-out bond strength tests were performed on coronal, middle and apical post space segments (S2, S4, S6) at a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm/min. Data were recorded and analyzed using a two-way mixed ANOVA design (a = 0.05). Three segments (S1, S5, S7) from roots in each group were examined using SEM/EDS. After post space preparation, acid etching and using each of the three radicular dentine treatments, the three remaining roots were sectioned longitudinally for SEM observation of the post space walls. At all root segment sites, the mean bond strengths from using 0.9% NaCl were significantly lower than for the other two radicular dentine treatments (P ≤ 0.02), and DUO-LINK cement had significantly higher mean bond strengths than LuxaCore Dual cement (P ≤ 0.01). There was a significant linear trend for reduced bond strengths from coronal to apical post space

    To determine the short-term effect of fluoroscopic-guided steroid injection therapy of lumbar facet cyst-induced radicular pain. Seventeen patients with radiculopathy due to lumbar synovial cysts, who were treated with fluoroscopically guided injection, were retrospectively evaluated. All plain radiographic images and MR images before the therapy were reviewed. Five patients underwent only the facet joint injection, whereas twelve patients underwent the facet joint injection with perineural injection therapy. The clinical course of pain was evaluated on the first follow-up after therapy. Effective pain relief was achieved in 11 (64.7%) of the 17 patients. Among 12 patients who underwent facet joint injection with perineural injection, 9 patients (75%) had an effective pain relief. Of 5 patients, 2 (40%) patients only took the facet joint injection and had an effective pain relief. Fluoroscopic-guided steroid injection therapy shows a good short-term effect in patients with symptomatic lumbar facet joint synovial cysts.

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background It is commonly stated that nerve root pain should be expected to follow a specific dermatome and that this information is useful to make the diagnosis of radiculopathy. There is little evidence in the literature that confirms or denies this statement. The purpose of this study is to describe and discuss the diagnostic utility of the distribution of pain in patients with cervical and lumbar radicular pain. Methods Pain drawings and descriptions were assessed in consecutive patients diagnosed with cervical or lumbar nerve root pain. These findings were compared with accepted dermatome maps to determine whether they tended to follow along the involved nerve root's dermatome. Results Two hundred twenty-six nerve roots in 169 patients were assessed. Overall, pain related to cervical nerve roots was non-dermatomal in over two-thirds (69.7% of cases. In the lumbar spine, the pain was non-dermatomal in just under two-thirds (64.1% of cases. The majority of nerve root levels involved non-dermatomal pain patterns except C4 (60.0% dermatomal and S1 (64.9% dermatomal. The sensitivity (SE and specificity (SP for dermatomal pattern of pain are low for all nerve root levels with the exception of the C4 level (Se 0.60, Sp 0.72 and S1 level (Se 0.65, Sp 0.80, although in the case of the C4 level, the number of subjects was small (n = 5. Conclusion In most cases nerve root pain should not be expected to follow along a specific dermatome, and a dermatomal distribution of pain is not a useful historical factor in the diagnosis of radicular pain. The possible exception to this is the S1 nerve root, in which the pain does commonly follow the S1 dermatome.

    Prospective study in a morbidly obese population after bariatric surgery. To document the effect of significant weight reduction on intervertebral disc space height, axial back pain, radicular leg pain, and quality of life. Low back pain is a common complaint in obese patients, and weight loss is found to improve low back pain and quality of life. The mechanism by which obesity causes low back pain is not fully understood. On acute axial loading and offloading, intervertebral disc changes its height; there are no data on intervertebral disc height changes after significant weight reduction. Thirty morbidly obese adults who underwent bariatric surgery for weight reduction were enrolled in the study. Disc space height was measured before and 1 year after surgery. Visual analogue scale was used to evaluate axial and radicular pain. The 36-Item Short Form Health Survey and Moorehead-Ardelt questionnaires were used to evaluate changes in quality of life. Body weight decreased at 1 year after surgery from an average of 119.6 ± 20.7 kg to 82.9 ± 14.0 kg corresponding to an average reduction in body mass index of 42.8 ± 4.8 kg/m(2) to 29.7 ± 3.4 kg/m(2) (P component of the questionnaire showed a positive trend for improvement. No correlation was noted between the amount of weight reduction and the increment in disc space height or back pain improvement. Bariatric surgery, resulting in significant weight reduction, was associated with a significant decrease in low back and radicular pain as well as a marked increase in the L4-L5 intervertebral disc height. Reduction in body weight after bariatric surgery in morbidly obese patients is associated with a significant radiographical increase in the L4-L5 disc space height as well as a significant clinical improvement in axial back and radicular leg pain.

    Full Text Available O marketing nunca esteve tão presente no futebol como atualmente. Fundamental para o bom momento do futebol brasileiro, a exploração do marketing esportivo pode caracterizar-se como importante fonte de receitas aos clubes, além de também ser responsável pela valorização de sua marca. Assim sendo, este estudo teve como objetivo verificar quais são as ações de marketing esportivo mais executadas por grandes clubes do futebol brasileiro. Para tanto, desenvolveu-se pesquisa descritiva-qualitativa, por meio da qual foram analisadas as ações de marketing esportivo desenvolvidas no período de 2008 a 2013 pelos cinco clubes nacionais com maior receita dentre os que disputaram a série A do Campeonato Brasileiro de Futebol em 2012. Assim, Corinthians, São Paulo, Internacional, Grêmio e Flamengo foram selecionados, uma vez que juntos somaram aproximadamente 47% da receita total dos clubes brasileiros naquele ano. Como resultados, observou-se que as ações de marketing esportivo mais praticadas pelos clubes analisados foram: programa sócio torcedor, venda de jogadores, escolas de futebol oficiais, lançamento de livros e filmes, venda de cotas televisivas, disponibilização de canais de informações sobre o time, contratação de jogadores consagrados, patrocínio máster, lojas oficiais do clube (física e virtual e, por fim, estabelecimento de agência de turismo exclusiva. É possível ainda afirmar que estas ações mais reproduzidas pelos clubes analisados evidenciaram-se como as principais geradoras de receita e crescimento econômico destes no período pesquisado. Não obstante, as demais ações encontradas na pesquisa também demonstraram-se importantes, pois complementaram o esforço dos clubes na fidelização de seus torcedores.

    Marsupialisation, by which a surgical window is created in the cavity of a cystic lesion, has been recommended to avoid the formation of a bony defect in the jaw and a reduction in a patient's quality of life. However, information about the factors that affect the reduction in the size of a cyst after marsupialisation is limited. We have studied the effects of the patient's age and the size of the primary lesion on the speed of shrinkage after marsupialisation of keratocystic odontogenic tumours (KCOTs), dentigerous cysts, and radicular cysts. The speed of shrinkage (mm(2)/month) was evaluated by measuring the radiolucent area on panoramic radiographs taken before and after marsupialisation for KCOT (n=28), dentigerous cysts (n=26), and radicular cysts (n=18) in the mandibular molar regions. The mean duration of marsupialisation for each type of cyst was 11 (5), 8 (5), and 5 (2) months, respectively. The radiolucent area decreased linearly in the 3 types depending on the time after marsupialisation: r=-0.86 (pradicular cysts (r=0.73, pcyst before marsupialisation may affect the speed of shrinkage in KCOT and radicular cysts, while the age of the patient does not.

    The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the course of a nerve root in the neural foramen and its relationship with foraminal entrapment or impingement in 19 adult patients with isthmic spondylolisthesis and radicular pain. Myelo-computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed that the course of the nerve root was normal (ie, medial and then inferior, along the pedicle) in 10 patients and was deviated posteriorly in 9 patients. The patients with a normal nerve root course (N-NRC) had either a bony callus projecting medially into the spinal canal (n = 6) or a low mean percentile of vertebral slip (n = 4; 13.9 +/- 1.3). Those nine patients with a posteriorly deviated nerve root course (PD-NRC) had no medially projecting bony callus in the spinal canal but had a higher mean percentile of vertebral slip (n = 9; 31.5 +/- 10.1; P = 0.005). In the neural foramen, nerve roots of the N-NRC patients were entrapped craniocaudally between the pedicle and superior part of the intervertebral disc. In contrast, nerve roots of the PD-NRC patients were impinged ventrodorsally between the posterosuperior part of the intervertebral disc and either bony callus projecting inferiorly toward the neural foramen or fibrocartilaginous mass arising around the isthmic defect. The foraminal craniocaudal entrapment and ventrodorsal impingement highly agreed with the side of radicular pain (kappa= 0.73, P radicular pain.

    Full Text Available Introdução: A formação do Cisto Radicular (CR está associada à proliferação dos restos epiteliais de Malassez por estímulos inflamatórios, provenientes da proliferação bacteriana do canal radicular de um dente não vital. Quando o dente é removido, esse cisto passa a ser denominado Cisto Residual (CRe. O tratamento de escolha para o CR é endodôntico, com o objetivo de eliminar a inflamação presente no periápice. No entanto, em alguns casos, o cisto pode continuar a crescer, necessitando de tratamento cirúrgico, o que ocorre na maioria dos casos de CRe. Objetivo: Avaliar o metabolismo do epitélio de revestimento de CR e CRe, utilizando a quantificação das AgNORs, e verificar a influência da presença de inflamação sobre o crescimento desses cistos. Material e método: Vinte casos de CR e dez de CRe foram submetidos à técnica de AgNOR. A análise quantitativa das NORs foi realizada utilizando-se o software 'Contando células'. O teste estatístico pós-hock de Newman-keuls foi realizado para a comparação do número médio de AgNORs entre CR e CRe, e entre áreas inflamadas e não inflamadas. Resultado: Diferença estatisticamente significante (p=0,0094 foi observada entre áreas inflamadas (1,86±0,26 e não inflamadas (1,65±0,20. Na comparação entre CR (1,81±0,28 e CRe (1,73±0,16, não houve diferença estatisticamente significante (p=0,37. Conclusão: A inflamação interfere no metabolismo epitelial de CR e CRe, o que reflete a ação de fatores de crescimento na proliferação do epitélio, contribuindo para o crescimento do cisto, independentemente da presença do fator etiológico associado com a origem da lesão.

    Full Text Available Para decidir qual método de avaliação do sistema radicular, é necessário ponderar sobre os objetivos do trabalho, a cultura em questão e as condições em que ela se desenvolve. O estudo de raízes é muito importante para a compreensão dos diversos fenômenos de crescimento e desenvolvimento da parte aérea, mas exige procedimentos extremamente criteriosos, pois, além de ser trabalhoso, seus resultados são influenciados pela variabilidade físico-química do solo. Objetivou-se, com esta pesquisa, comparar os resultados de cinco métodos de avaliação do sistema radicular, em duas variedades de cana-de-açúcar, em quatro profundidades e em dois sistemas de colheita: mecanizada de cana crua e manual de cana queimada. Foram comparados ao método de avaliação por extração de monólitos e pesagem de massa de raízes secas outros quatro métodos: monólito com medição de comprimento, trado com pesagem de massa seca, perfil com medição de comprimento por meio de imagens digitais e perfil com contagem do número de raízes. Constatou-se que regressões lineares expressaram adequadamente a relação entre os métodos estudados, exceto quando foi utilizado o trado. Os métodos de perfil foram os mais adequados para detectar diferenças entre tratamentos.To select a method for the evaluation of a root system the research goals, crop of interest, and its growth conditions must be taken into consideration. The study of roots is highly important in the understanding of various phenomena of the shoot growth and development, but requires an extremely careful proceeding since evaluation methods are laborious and the roots are affected by the physiochemical variability of the soil. The objective of this research was to compare five evaluation methods for the root systems of two sugar-cane varieties at four depths, in two harvest systems: green cane harvesting and manual harvesting of burnt cane.

    Full Text Available Root debridement generates a smear layer which contains microorganisms and toxins that could interfere in periodontal healing. For this reason, different substances have been used to remove it and to expose collagen fibers at the tooth surface. Blood element adhesion to demineralized roots and clot stabilization by collagen fibers are extremely important for the success of periodontal surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the different patterns of blood element adsorption and adhesion to root surfaces only irrigated with distilled water and after application of a manipulated or an industrialized EDTA gel. Thirty samples were planed, equally divided into three groups and treated with distilled water (control, a manipulated EDTA gel or an industrialized one. Immediately after, samples were exposed to fresh blood and prepared for scanning electron microscopy. Untreated planed dentin presented the best results with blood cells entrapped in a thick web of fibrin. In the manipulated EDTA group, the web of fibrin was thick with sparse blood elements. The worst result was seen with the industrialized EDTA group, in which no blood elements could be seen. Statistical difference was obtained between control and industrialized EDTA groups. Surfaces only irrigated presented the most organized fibrin network and cell entrapment.A raspagem gera "smear layer", a qual contém microrganismos e toxinas que podem interferir no reparo periodontal.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Chronic lumbar radicular pain can be described as neuropathic pain along the distribution of a particular nerve root. The dorsal root ganglion has been implicated in its pathogenesis by giving rise to abnormal impulse generation as a result of irritation, direct compression and sensitization. Chronic lumbar radicular pain is commonly treated with medications, physiotherapy and epidural steroid injections. Epidural steroid injections are associated with several common and rarer side effects such as spinal cord infarction and death. It is essential and advantageous to look for alternate interventions which could be effective with fewer side effects. Pulse radio frequency is a relatively new technique and is less destructive then conventional radiofrequency. Safety and effectiveness of pulse radio frequency in neuropathic pain has been demonstrated in animal and humans studies. Although its effects on dorsal root ganglion have been studied in animals there is only one randomized control trial in literature demonstrating its effectiveness in cervical radicular pain and none in lumbar radicular pain. Our primary objective is to study the feasibility of a larger trial in terms of recruitment and methodology. Secondary objectives are to compare the treatment effects and side effects. Methods/designs This is a single-center, parallel, placebo-controlled, triple-blinded (patients, care-givers, and outcome assessors, randomized control trial. Participants will have a history of chronic lumbar radicular pain for at least 4 months in duration. Once randomized, all patients will have an intervention involving fluoroscopy guided needle placement to appropriate dorsal root ganglion. After test stimulation in both groups; the study group will have a pulse radio frequency treatment at 42°C for 120 s to the dorsal root ganglion, with the control group having only low intensity test stimulation for the same duration.

    Bioinformatics has emerged as an important tool to analyze the large amount of data generated by research in different diseases. In this study, gene expression for radicular cysts (RCs) and periapical granulomas (PGs) was characterized based on a leader gene approach. A validated bioinformatics algorithm was applied to identify leader genes for RCs and PGs. Genes related to RCs and PGs were first identified in PubMed, GenBank, GeneAtlas, and GeneCards databases. The Web-available STRING software (The European Molecular Biology Laboratory [EMBL], Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany) was used in order to build the interaction map among the identified genes by a significance score named weighted number of links. Based on the weighted number of links, genes were clustered using k-means. The genes in the highest cluster were considered leader genes. Multilayer perceptron neural network analysis was used as a complementary supplement for gene classification. For RCs, the suggested leader genes were TP53 and EP300, whereas PGs were associated with IL2RG, CCL2, CCL4, CCL5, CCR1, CCR3, and CCR5 genes. Our data revealed different gene expression for RCs and PGs, suggesting that not only the inflammatory nature but also other biological processes might differentiate RCs and PGs.

    The epithelial lining of odontogenic keratocysts exhibits either parakeratosis or orthokeratosis. In 2005, the WHO classified odontogenic keratocysts with parakeratosis as keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOT). Odontogenic keratocysts with orthokeratosis were not classified as odontogenic tumors, but instead referred to as orthokeratinized odontogenic cysts (OOC). To clarify the difference between these two lesions, we investigated their biological characteristics using immunohistochemical studies for cytokeratins (CK) in KCOT and OOC as well as in dentigerous cysts (DC), radicular cysts (RC) and dermoid cysts (DMC). We examined twenty-five cases of KCOT, fifteen cases each of OOC, DC and RC, and ten cases of DMC. We studied the immunohistochemical expression of CK10, 13, 17 and 19. To evaluate the immunohistochemical staining pattern, we divided the epithelial lining of the lesions into three layers (surface layer: su, spinous layer: sp, basal layer: ba). For CK10, most OOC and DMC specimens of su and sp were positive. For CK13 and 19, most KCOT, DC and RC specimens of su and sp were positive. For CK17, most KCOT specimens of su and sp were positive. The percentages of total CK expression of su and sp, and ba of CK19 differed significantly between the lesions (P < 0.001). These results support the hypothesis that OOC originate from not the odontogenic apparatus, but the oral epithelial component.

    Osteoid osteomas of the spine are benign bone tumors typically presenting with progressive pain without neurological deficit. This report presents a case of an osteoid osteoma in the lumbar spine associated with radicular pain. The patient, a young male athlete, presented with severe chronic nightly left low-back pain radiated to the ipsilateral lower extremity who failed to respond to physical therapy and analgesic medications. Initial radiologic examination was reported as normal, but closer inspection of the T1- and T2-weighted magnetic resonance image as well as technetium-99m total body bone scan and a computed tomography scan revealed a bony lesion in the left transverse process of the L4 vertebra consistent with the diagnosis of osteoid osteoma. A selective L3 nerve root block provided significant relief. Surgical excision of the osteoid osteoma resolved the symptoms. This case emphasizes the importance of early suspicion and diagnostic interventions in the detection and treatment of osteoid osteoma. © 2017 World Institute of Pain.

    Full Text Available Louro-pardo (Cordia trichotoma (Vell. Arrab. ex Steudel é espécie arbórea que possui raízes gemíferas, nas quais, após a ocorrência de distúrbios de origem natural ou antrópica, ocorre a formação de brotos. Nessa espécie, ao considerar a habilidade natural de regeneração pelo sistema radicular, presume-se que esses propágulos constituem material com elevado potencial morfogenético. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a propagação vegetativa de louro-pardo por estaquia radicular. No primeiro experimento, raízes de mudas de louro-pardo foram seccionadas em estacas com 5,0 cm de comprimento, classificadas quanto ao diâmetro em grossas (1,6 - 2,5 cm e finas (1,0 - 1,5 cm e tratadas em solução de 0, 10, 20 e 30 mM de AIB, por 10 seg. No segundo experimento, os propágulos foram classificados quanto à posição de coleta na raiz das mudas em basais, medianas e apicais, seccionadas em estacas de 1,0; 3,0 e 5,0 cm de comprimento e tratadas em solução de 30 mM de AIB. O uso de AIB favoreceu o enraizamento das estacas radiculares, com maiores respostas nos tratamentos com a dose de 30 mM. Estacas radiculares com maior diâmetro mostraram-se mais aptas à brotação quando comparadas com as estacas radiculares menos espessas. As melhores respostas de brotação e enraizamento ocorreram em estacas radiculares basais e medianas com 3,0 e 5,0 cm de comprimento. Portanto, é possível realizar a propagação vegetativa de louro-pardo pela técnica de estaquia radicular.Cordia trichotoma (Vell.

    Cysts and periapical granulomas are inflammatory reactions that develop in response to periapical infection by microbial species in dental root canal. It is known that toll-like receptors (TLRs) are pathogen recognition molecules and that galectins are lectins that can be associated with the inflammatory process, stimulating or inhibiting the immune system. The objective of this study was to evaluate the in situ expression of TLRs and galectins in radicular cysts and periapical granulomas. We analyzed 62 cases (30 radicular cysts, 27 periapical granulomas, and 5 control cases). Indirect immunohistochemistry was used to evaluate the expression of TLRs (TRL-2 and TLR-4) and galectins (Gal-3 and Gal-9). The expression of Gal-3 and Gal-9 was significantly higher in periapical granulomas and radicular cysts than in the control group. Similarly, both Gal-3 and Gal-9 were expressed significantly more in periapical granulomas than in radicular cysts. The expression of TLR-2 was significantly higher in periapical granulomas and radicular cysts than in the control group, and it was also significantly higher in radicular cysts with sinus tract than in the cases without sinus tract. Furthermore, the expression of TLR-4 was significantly higher in the cases of periapical granulomas with sinus tract than in the cases without sinus tract. Gal-3/Gal-9 and TLR-2/TLR-4 expression in the periapical granulomas and radicular cysts is associated with reactive periapical inflammation. Pathobiology of periapical disease is a very complex interplay of many bioactive molecules involved in immunoinflammatory responses. Up-regulation of these bioactive molecules might be an important modulator of inflammatory periapical lesions. Copyright © 2014 American Association of Endodontists. Published by Elsevier Inc.

As coletas de solo rizosférico e de raízes foram realizadas em maio e outubro de 2002. Determinaram-se a densidade de esporos, taxa de colonização radicular e identificaram-se os gêneros de FMAs presentes. O número de esporos na FN foi sempre inferior aos reflorestamentos. Foram identificadas ao todo 26 espécies de FMAs. A colonização radicular na primeira coleta apresentou valores os quais não diferiram entre as três áreas estudadas. Entretanto, na segunda coleta, a FN apresentou plantas com maior valor de colonização que aquelas dos reflorestamentos, sendo todos os valores superiores aos encontrados na primeira coleta. Houve uma relação inversa entre colonização e número de esporos em todas as áreas. Ocorreu uma separação espacial entre as três áreas de estudo, baseada em análise canônica discriminante das variáveis estudadas.

    Full Text Available O trabalho de Al-Qawasmi et al.¹, publicado em março de 2003 pelo American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, procurou estabelecer uma predisposição genética para justificar as reabsorções dentárias em Ortodontia, mas apresentou algumas limitações metodológicas e equívocos na interpretação de seus resultados. A análise criteriosa deste artigo ressalta que, na maioria, estas limitações foram mencionadas e reconhecidas pelos autores na discussão do trabalho, mas o seu resumo e título foram muito taxativos e conclusivos. A linguagem de estudos genéticos nem sempre é familiar a todos os clínicos e isto também requer uma análise esclarecedora à luz de uma visão mais aplicada ao cotidiano ortodôntico. Referenciar ou citar este trabalho de Al-Qawasmi et al.¹, para afirmar de forma taxativa que se demonstrou a natureza hereditária das reabsorções dentárias em Ortodontia, pode denotar falta de conhecimento sobre o assunto ou uma leitura ou compreensão apenas do seu título. Ou ainda, a citação deste trabalho como prova definitiva de associação entre hereditariedade e reabsorções dentárias em Ortodontia pode traduzir também o desejo de excluir da prática clínica a responsabilidade de planejar de forma individualizada e detalhada cada tratamento com base no conhecimento das possibilidades e limitações técnicas oferecidas pela ciência ortodôntica, bem como nas suas bases biológicas, por exemplo, valorizando a morfologia radicular e da crista óssea alveolar e o papel dos cementoblastos na proteção da superfície radicular.The study published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics last March by Al-Qawasmi et al. tried to implicate dental resorption during orthodontic treatment to genetic predisposition. The methodology used, however, presents limitations and interpretative mistakes of the results. When analyzing the article sensibly, one is able to find that

    Full Text Available O Rio Grande do Sul apresenta a maior área irrigada do Brasil, devido principalmente à lavoura de arroz irrigado por inundação. Um dos fatores que contribuem para reduzir a eficiência de irrigação nessas lavouras é o baixo grau de controle exercido pelas estruturas de distribuição de água. Os objetivos deste trabalho foram projetar e construir dois protótipos de estruturas hidráulicas para controle automático de vazão em canais de irrigação e comparar sua sensibilidade de controle de vazão com a sensibilidade de duas comportas fixas. Os protótipos construídos - uma comporta hidromecânica automática e um regulador automático de vazão - foram instalados à entrada de um canal secundário, juntamente com uma comporta-gaveta e uma comporta-vertedor, que são as estruturas mais utilizadas para controle de vazão no RS. Provocou-se uma variação de 0,20 m na altura da lâmina de água a montante, determinando-se a vazão em cada estrutura. A menor variação de vazão com a alteração da lâmina foi de 5,6%, obtida com o regulador automático de vazão, seguido da comporta-gaveta com 23,7%, da comporta hidromecânica com 30,5%, e da comporta vertedor com 1.177,2%.In Brazil, the State that presents the largest extension of irrigated lands is Rio Grande do Sul, mainly due to rice that grows under flooded conditions. One of the factors that contribute to decrease the efficiency of irrigation is the low degree of control obtained with the structures used on water distribution. The objectives of this work were to design and build two hydraulic structures for automatic flow control on irrigation channels, and to compare the flow control sensitivity of the built prototypes with two types of gates that are widely used in the rice fields at the Rio Grande do Sul State. The constructed prototypes - a hydro-mechanical gate and an automatic flow regulator - were installed at the entrance of a secondary channel, next to a sluice gate and

    There is uncertainty in the literature over the relative effectiveness of lumbar epidural interlaminar (IL) steroid injection versus transforaminal (TF) steroid injection for lumbar radiculopathy. Most studies to date have been retrospective, or technically focused. To complete a randomized, blinded, prospective outcome study of the short-term benefit for IL versus TF epidural steroids for the treatment of subacute lumbar radicular pain. Prospective, randomized, blinded, subacute efficacy trial. Tertiary care pain management center, major metropolitan city, United States. After institutional review board approval, 42 age-matched patients with similar lower back pain and unilateral radicular symptoms were enrolled and randomized in a patient and evaluating physician blinded trial to IL or TF epidural steroids from 2007 through 2009. Prior to intervention and 10-16 days after injection, each participant was evaluated by questionnaire and physical exam by an independent physician. All injections were performed by the same physician. Thirty-eight participants completed the study, 18 in the IL group and 20 in the TF group. Four participants required a repeat injection, and 2 participants crossed over to the alternative injection type (IL to TF). Overall, physical exam, diagnostic testing, disability, activity, depression measures, and opioid pill use were similar between the 2 groups, both pre-injection baseline and post-injection improvement. In primary outcomes, the post-injection follow-up Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) was more greatly reduced in the TF group. The NRS decreased from 7.0 ± 1.9 to 3.9 ± 3.1 (mean values +/- standard deviation) in the IL group and 6.4 ± 2.1 to 1.7 ± 1.4 in the TF group. The Oswestry Disability Index was reduced from 37.5 ± 12.6 to 19.0 ± 16.7 in the IL group and 38.3 ± 6.4 to 21.6 ± 16.8 in the TF group. In secondary outcomes, the depression scale was reduced from 4.39 ± 3.22 to 2.28 ± 3.20 in the IL group and 4.10 ± 1.94 to 1

    To evaluate, using an experimental immature tooth model, the fracture resistance of bovine incisors submitted to different reinforcement treatments with mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). An immature tooth model was created by sectioning the coronal and apical portions of 40 bovine incisors 8 mm above and 12 mm below the cementoenamel junction. The root canals were irrigated with 1.0% sodium hypochlorite. They were enlarged both coronally and apically using number 703 carbide burs (ISO: 500-104-168-007-021) and their internal diameter was standardized to 2.1 mm. The specimens were assigned to four groups (n = 10): GI-control (without filling); GII-apical MTA plug + filling with gutta-percha and endodontic sealer; GIII-filling with MTA; GIV-apical MTA plug + filling with MTA + metallic post (Reforpost I). A polyether impression material was used to simulate the periodontal ligament. The specimens were submitted to a compressive load at a crosshead speed of 0.5 mm min(-1) in a servo-hydraulic universal testing machine (MTS 810) applied at 45 degrees to the long axis of the tooth until failure. Data were submitted to statistical analysis by the Kruskal-Wallis test at 5% significance level. GIV presented the highest fracture resistance (32.7N) and differed significantly from the other groups (P 0.05). GIII had a significantly higher fracture resistance than GI (P < 0.05). The use of MTA + metallic post as an intra-radicular reinforcement treatment increased the resistance to fracture of weakened bovine teeth in an experimental immature tooth model.

METHODS: The four maxillary and mandibular premolars of ten male mongrel dogs (1-1.5 years old, weighing 10-15 kg received endodontic treatment (n=80 teeth. The furcations were perforated with a round diamond bur (1016 HL. The perforations involved the dentin, cementum, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone. A calcium sulfate barrier was placed into the perforated bone to prevent extrusion of obturation material into the periradicular space. The obturation materials MTA (control, white, Type II, and Type V Portland cements were randomly allocated to the teeth. Treated teeth were restored with composite resin. After 120 days, the animals were sacrificed and samples containing the teeth were collected and prepared for histological analysis. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in the amount of newly formed bone between teeth treated with the different obturation materials (p=0.879. CONCLUSION: Biomineralization occurred for all obturation materials tested, suggesting that these materials have similar biocompatibility.OBJETIVO: Avaliar o uso de cimentos Portland aditivados na reparação de perfurações radiculares e a biocompatibilidade destes materiais.

    Full Text Available O estudo da distribuição de raízes no solo é um método adequado para se detectarem as condições adversas ou não ao seu desenvolvimento, bem como para avaliar o efeito das alterações introduzidas por sistemas de preparo do solo. Sendo assim, o objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o efeito de métodos de preparo sobre determinadas características do solo e, por conseguinte, sobre o desenvolvimento do sistema radicular do milho. Para tal, foi utilizado um experimento de campo, instalado em um solo Podzólico Vermelho-Escuro com cinco anos de utilização por preparo convencional, reduzido e semeadura direta, na sucessão aveia + trevo/milho. Para observar as modificações estruturais do solo, usou-se o método do perfil cultural adaptado, acompanhado por determinações de densidade do solo, porosidade total, macro e microporosidade e resistência ao penetrômetro. Os métodos da parede do perfil e do monolito (prancha com pregos foram utilizados para determinar a distribuição e morfologia das raízes. Nos mapas estruturais descritos, observou-se que os modos de organização provocados pelos tratamentos explicaram parcialmente a presença das raízes no perfil. As plantas submetidas à semeadura direta, quando comparadas às do preparo convencional, tiveram o crescimento inicial das raízes diferindo do padrão diagonal normal e, ao final do ciclo, apresentaram raízes com maior raio médio nas profundidades de 10-15 e 25-35 cm e mostraram a densidade de comprimento (cm cm-3 maior na camada superficial (0-5 cm e menor na camada de 10-15 cm. Os sistemas de preparo não afetaram a massa seca de raízes e o rendimento dos grãos de milho.

    Osteoarthritis of the spine is a major global health problem, it is an epidemic of our times. It affects all parts of the spine, but the hardest to treat is its cervical region. The cervical spine is most mobile, delicate and sensitive to any load. It requires special care in conservative treatment. To date the selection of effective therapeutic approaches has been controversial. The aim of the study was to assess the progress of rehabilitation in patients with cervical radicular pain syndrome after using two different methods of treatment: HILT and spinal axial traction with the use of Saunders device. The randomized study included 150 patients (81 women and 69 men, aged 24-67 years, mean age 45.5) divided into two groups of 75 patients each with characteristic symptoms of radicular pain. The measurement of the range of cervical spine movement of the cervical spine, visual analog scale for pain - VAS and a NDI questionnaire (Neck Disability Index - Polish version) - an indicator of functional disorders - were used to evaluate the effectiveness of the two different therapies. The results obtained by Saunders method remained significantly higher than those obtained when HILT laser therapy was used for most of the examined parameters. A thorough analysis of the results showed greater analgesic efficacy, improved global mobility and reduced functional impairment in patients treated with Saunders method. Both therapeutic methods manifest analgesic effect and a positive impact on the improvement of range of cervical spine movement in patients with radicular pain in this spine region. HILT laser therapy and Saunders traction device reduce neck disability index in the treated patients. © 2015 MEDPRESS.

    The aim of the current study was to evaluate the presence of debris and smear layer after endodontic irrigation with different formulations of 2% chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX) and its effects on the push-out bond strength of an epoxy-based sealer on the radicular dentin. One hundred extracted human canines were prepared to F5 instrument and irrigated with 2.5% sodium hypochlorite and 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. Fifty teeth were divided into five groups (n = 10), according to the final irrigation protocol with different 2% CHX formulations: G1 (control, no final rinse irrigation), G2 (CHX solution), G3 (CHX gel), G4 (Concepsis), and G5 (CHX Plus). In sequence, the specimens were submitted to scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis, in the cervical-medium and medium-apical segments, to evaluate the presence of debris and smear layer. The other 50 teeth were treated equally to a SEM study, but with the root canals filled with an epoxy-based endodontic sealer and submitted to a push-out bond strength test, in the cervical, middle, and apical thirds. G2, G3, G4, and G5 provided higher precipitation of the debris and smear layer than G1 (P  0.05), in both segments. The values obtained in the push out test did not differ between groups, independent of the radicular third (P > 0.05). The CHXs formulations caused precipitation of the debris and smear layer on the radicular dentin, but these residues did not interfere in the push-out bond strength of the epoxy-based sealer.

    Full Text Available No estudo aqui relatado identificaram-se os fatores que levam à formação do capital social familiar em empresas familiares. Para atingir o objetivo proposto, utilizou-se, como aporte teórico, a teoria do capital social e do capital social familiar. Para tanto, foi realizada uma pesquisa exploratória, do tipo survey, em 120 empreendimentos familiares. Aplicou-se questionário, sob a forma de entrevista, a todos os empresários. Os dados foram analisados por meio de análise fatorial. Os resultados foram apresentados em dois blocos: primeiro, a caracterização da amostra em relação ao perfil do respondente e ao perfil do empreendimento, bem como a apresentação da frequência de cada uma das assertivas; na segunda parte, foi feita a análise fatorial, após a qual foram identificados sete fatores relacionados com a formação do capital social familiar. São eles: diálogo colaborativo, rede familiar, infraestrutura moral, confiança, normas éticas, ideias próprias e canais de informação externos. O capital social familiar é solidificado por meio do diálogo colaborativo, a partir do qual é possível enraizar, na família e na empresa, as normas éticas, originando o que se chama de infraestrutura moral, quando a família e a empresa estão em sintonia interna e externa. Em um sentido contraditório, a ausência do diálogo colaborativo gera autoritarismo por parte dos dirigentes e membros da família, prevalecendo ideias próprias, as quais foram identificadas como fator contraditório à formação do capital social familiar.

    Cyst and tumors arise from tissue remains of odontogenesis, these interactions have been considered to play an important role in the tumorigenesis of odontogenic lesions. The connective tissue stroma has an essential role in the preservation of epithelial tissues and minor alterations in the epithelium are followed by corresponding changes in the stroma, such as angiogenesis. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is considered the first factor which maintains its position as the most critical driver of vascular formation and is required to initiate the formation of immature vessels, with this aim, present study was executed to evaluate VEGF expression in kertocystic odontogenic tumor, dentigerous cyst and radicular cyst (RC). A retrospective study was carried out comprising a total of 31 cases; 13 cases of keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT), nine cases of dentigerous cyst (DC) and nine cases of RC. The sections were stained immunohistochemically with VEGF antibody and were evaluated for the presence and intensity of the immuno reactive cells. Statistical analysis was carried out using Chi-square test to inter-compare the VEGF expression between KCOT, DC, and RC. VEGF expression in the epithelium and connective tissue was significantly higher in KCOT compared to dentigerous and RC. One case of KCOT with carcinomatous change also revealed positive results for the VEGF expression in the dysplastic epithelium, tumor islands, and connective tissue. The significant difference was observed on inter-comparison of the VEGF expression in the connective tissue of KCOT and DC, whereas no significant difference was observed in the VEGF expression in the connective tissue of KCOT and DC. The present study data supports the literature finding that angiogenesis can be important in the progression and enlargement of odontogenic cysts similarly to what occurs in neoplastic conditions and further it can be concluded that the higher positivity for VEGF of KCOT could help to

    The tooth root is essential for normal tooth physiological function. Studies on mice with mutations or targeted gene deletions revealed that osteoclasts (OCs) play an important role in tooth root development. However, knowledge on the cellular and molecular mechanism underlying how OCs mediate root formation is limited. During bone formation, growth factors (e.g. Insulin-like growth factor-1, IGF-1) liberated from bone matrix by osteoclastic bone resorption stimulate osteoblast differentiation. Thus, we hypothesize that OC-osteoblast coupling may also apply to OC-odontoblast coupling; therefore OCs may have a direct impact on odontoblast differentiation through the release of growth factor(s) from bone matrix, and consequently regulate tooth root formation. To test this hypothesis, we used a receptor activator of NF-κB ligand (RANKL) knockout mouse model in which OC differentiation and function was entirely blocked. We found that molar root formation and tooth eruption were defective in RANKL-/- mice. Disrupted elongation and disorganization of Hertwig's epithelial root sheath (HERS) was observed in RANKL-/- mice. Reduced expression of nuclear factor I C (NFIC), osterix, and dentin sialoprotein, markers essential for radicular (root) odontogenic cell differentiation indicated that odontoblast differentiation was disrupted in RANKL deficient mice likely contributing to the defect in root formation. Moreover, down-regulation of IGF/AKT/mTOR activity in odontoblast indicated that IGF signaling transduction in odontoblasts of the mutant mice was impaired. Treating odontoblast cells in vitro with conditioned medium from RANKL-/- OCs cultured on bone slices resulted in inhibition of odontoblast differentiation. Moreover, depletion of IGF-1 in bone resorption-conditioned medium (BRCM) from wild-type (WT) OC significantly compromised the ability of WT osteoclastic BRCM to induce odontoblast differentiation while addition of IGF-1 into RANKL-/- osteoclastic BRCM rescued

    Full Text Available Aunque una gran parte de este estudio ha sido consagrada a la descripción de métodos, estructuras de los patógenos, clasificaciones, análisis de experimentos. El interés principal yace en: 1 Determinación de la etiología de las pudriciones radiculares, 2 en el conocimiento de la reacción (susceptibilidad o resistencia de algunas variedades a esos agentes etiológicos, 3 en la estimación de las pérdidas ocasionadas por esos mismos organismos y 4 en la apreciación de la dispersión de los patógenos en los plantíos de fríjol. En los capítulos anteriores se dio buena evidencia de la existencia de un grupo, más bien grande, de hongos que pueden reducir considerablemente los rendimientos en las cosechas de fríjol. Dichos hongos en su mayoría son los mismos que han sido registrados como agentes patógenos de esta planta en otros países, y que aparecen con mucha frecuencia citados en la literatura sobre enfermedades. Con los hongos clasificados como altamente patógenos, se probó la forma de reacción de 8 variedades de las comerciales de Antioquia a dichos organismos, tomando en consideración el efecto de los patógenos sobre la semilla en estado pre-emergente y post-emergente. De los estudios hechos se desprende claramente que hay diferencia, en el estado de pre-emergencia e la reacción de post-emergencia, es decir, las variedades probadas son igualmente susceptibles en estado de planta, a los patógenos usados en el experimento, pero algunas son más susceptibles o más resistentes en el estado de semilla.

    To evaluate the diagnostic value of the Korean version of the Douleur Neuropathique 4 (DN4) questionnaire and to validate this questionnaire in terms of psychometric properties in patients with chronic pain due to degenerative spinal disease. The Korean version of the DN4 questionnaire, which was translated and linguistically validated by the MAPI Research Group, was tested on 83 patients with lumbar or lumbar-radicular pain. Test-retest reliability was evaluated in a subsample of 40 patients who completed two assessments with an interval of 2 weeks. Nociceptive pain and neuropathic component pain were diagnosed in 40 and 43 patients, respectively. The Cronbach's α coefficient of internal consistency was 0.819, and the test-retest intraclass correlation coefficient (3, 1) (95% confidence interval) was 0.813 (0.776-0.847) (n=40). The area under the receiver-operator characteristics curve was 0.953 (p<0.001), with 95% confidence interval between 0.869 and 0.990. The Korean version of the DN4 questionnaire showed a sensitivity of 100% and 87.1%, and a specificity of 88.2% and 94.1% at the cutoff value of 3/10 and 4/10, respectively, for discriminating neuropathic component pain. The present study demonstrated the good discriminatory power of DN4 between nociceptive pain and neuropathic component pain in patients with lumbar or lumbar-radicular pain.

    Talon cusp (TC) and dens invaginatus (DI) are relatively rare developmental anomalies which affect the shape of teeth. TC is an additional cusp that projects predominately from the lingual surface of anterior teeth. DI is a deep surface invagination of the crown or root which is commonly detected on routine radiographic examination. Both of these anomalies are observed more frequently in permanent maxillary lateral incisor. Isolated cases of single TC and DI are extensively reported in dental literature. Occasionally two talon cusps (TCs) in the same tooth as well as double and triple invaginations in one tooth are reported separately. Coexistence of these two anomalies in a single tooth is considered extremely rare, but still there are few reported cases. However, coexistence of two TCs and double DI in a single tooth is not reported till date. We hereby report the first case of coexistence of two TCs and double DI in a single tooth of a 23 year old female and use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in the management of associated radicular cyst. Also, literature on coexistence of these two anomalies in a single tooth is reviewed. Key words:Coexistence, dens invaginatus, radicular cyst, talon cusp.

    Full Text Available The goal of this study was to evaluate the concentrations of non-structural carbohydrate (NSC and of total nitrogen (N, as well as, to evaluate the root system in Tanzania-grass pastures fertilized with doses of urea in fall, spring and summer. The experiment was conducted at the Experimental Farm of Iguatemi, Maringá, Paraná, Brazil, from March 2007 to March 2008. The experimental design was complete random blocks with subplots and four repetitions. The plots showed doses of N (50, 100 e 150 kg ha-1 of N plus the control (no N fertilization, and the subplots the season of the year. Root samples were taken at depths of 0-10, 10-20 and 20-40 cm. Root biomass showed a trend for mass accumulation up to a dosage of 100 kg ha-1 for all seasons evaluated. Also, about 80% of the root system of Tanzaniagrass plants was found on the 0-10 cm layer for all dosages of N. Nitrogen fertilizer above 100 kg ha-1 may foster fast forage plant growth reducing its NSC root storage capacity although favoring NSC and total N storage at stem base. NSC and total N concentrations were highest in fall, demonstrating that its usage is greater in spring due to the weather conditions being favorable to plant growth. In the regrowth, the largest reserve of total N was at the 0-10 cm root layer and the largest NSC reserve is at stem base.

    Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of cysts. Both these factors seem to be interrelated to each other. The importance of the MMPs in the induction of the angiogenic process has recently been described. MMPs, which are produced by microvascular endothelial cells, break down the extracellular matrix. This is one of the earliest and sustained events in the process of new capillary formation. Thus, we studied the expression of VEGF and MMP-9 in Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs), dentigerous cysts (DCs) and radicular cysts (RCs). Ten cases each of KCOTs, DCs and RCs and were included in the study and immunohistochemistry was performed using anti-VEGF and anti-MMP-9 antibody using standard protocol. When the data of positive cells in the epithelium of KCOTs was compared with DCs and RCs, it showed highly significant results (Pcyst that is currently considered a cystic tumor rather than a developmental cyst.

    We used lumbar magnetic resonance image (MRI) findings to determine possible outcome predictors of a caudal epidural steroid injection (CESI) for radicular pain caused by a herniated lumbar disc (HLD). Ninety-one patients with radicular pain whose MRI indicated a HLD were enrolled between September 2010 and July 2013. The CESIs were performed using ultrasound (US). A responder was defined as having complete relief or at least a 50% reduction of pain as assessed by the visual analog scale (VAS) and functional status on the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ); responder (VAS n=61, RMDQ n=51), and non-responder (VAS n=30, RMDQ n=40). MRI findings were analyzed and compared between the two groups with regard to HLD level, HLD type (protrusion or exclusion), HLD zone (central, subarticular, foraminal, and extraforaminal), HLD volume (mild, moderate, or severe), relationship between HLD and nerve root (no contact, contact, displaced, or compressed), disc height loss (none, less than half, or more than half ), and disc degeneration grade (homogeneous disc structure or inhomogeneous disc structure-clear nucleus and height of intervertebral disc). A centrally located herniated disc was more common in the responder group than that in the non-responder group. Treatment of centrally located herniated discs showed satisfactory results. (VAS p=0.025, RMDQ p=0.040). Other factors, such as HLD level, HLD type, HLD volume, relationship to nerve root, disc height loss, and disc degeneration grade, were not critical.

    The authors conducted a study to determine the results of decompressive surgery without fusion in selected patients who presented with radicular compression syndromes caused by degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis and in whom there was no evidence of hypermobility on flexion-extension radiographs. The medical records and radiographs obtained in 49 patients were reviewed retrospectively. Clinical status was quantified by summing self-assessed Prolo Scale scores. All 49 patients (55% female, mean age 68.7 years) presented with leg pain accompanied by lumbalgia in 85.7% of the cases. Preoperatively the median sum of Prolo Scale scores was 4. The mean preoperative degree of forward vertebral displacement was 13.5% and was located at L-4 in 67% of the cases. Osseous decompression alone was performed in 53%, and an additional discectomy at the level of displacement was undertaken in the remaining patients because of herniated discs. Major complications (deep wound infection) occurred in 2%. During a mean follow-up period of 3.73 years, 10.2% of the patients underwent instrumentation-assisted lumbar fusion when decompression alone failed to resolve symptoms. At last follow up the median overall Prolo Scale score was 8. Excellent and good results were demonstrated in 73.5% of the patients. Prolonged back pain (r = 0.381) as well as the preoperative degree of displacement (r = 0.81) and disc space height (r = 0.424) influenced outcome (p 0.05). These results appear to support a less invasive approach in this subgroup of elderly patients with degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis-induced radicular compression syndromes and without radiographically documented hypermobility. Additional discectomy for simultaneous disc herniation of the spondylolisthetic level did not adversely influence the outcome. Complication rates are minimized and fusion can eventually be performed should decompression alone fail. A prospective controlled study is required to confirm these results.

    This study evaluated the effect of different surface treatments on the flexural properties and adhesion of glass fiber post to self-adhesive luting agent and radicular dentin. Seventy-five single-rooted human teeth were prepared to receive a glass fiber post (Reblida). The posts were divided into five groups according to the surface treatment: Gr C (control; no treatment), Gr S (silanization for 60 s), Gr AP (airborne-particle abrasion), Gr HF (etching with 9 % hydrofluoric acid for 1 min), and Gr M10 (etching with CH2Cl2 for 10 min). Dual-cure self-adhesive luting agent (Rely X Unicem) was applied to each group for testing the adhesion using micropush-out test. Failure types were examined with stereomicroscope and surface morphology of the posts was characterized using a scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Flexural properties of posts were assessed using a three-point bending test. Data were analyzed using ANOVA and Tukey's HSD test. Statistical significance was set at the 0.05 probability level. Groups treated with M10 showed significantly higher bond strength than those obtained with other surface treatments (P C > S > AP > HF. Most failure modes were adhesive type of failures between dentin and luting agent (48.2%). SEM analysis revealed that the fiber post surfaces were modified after surface treatments. The surface treatments did not compromise the flexural properties of fiber posts. Application of M10 to the fiber post surfaces enhanced the adhesion to self-adhesive luting agent and radicular dentin.

Diante disso objetivou-se quantificar o acúmulo de biomassas verde e seca e caracterizar e quantificar o sistema radicular da alfafa quando submetidas a diferentes níveis de saturação por bases do solo tendo como fonte o calcário e o gesso, para isso realizou-se um experimento a campo com delineamento experimental de blocos ao acaso com parcelas subdivididas, com quatro tratamentos e quatro repetições. Considerou-se as parcelas os tratamentos que foram calculados para atingir a saturação por bases do solo a V=80%, sendo T1- 80% gesso, T2- 80% calcário, T3- 40% calcário + 40% gesso e T4- 80% calcário + 80% gesso, e as subparcelas, três épocas de amostragem, com intervalos de 30 dias. A partir dos resultados concluiu-se que a gessagem e a calagem devem ser analisadas segundo caráter econômico, já que maiores doses não implicam em maiores acúmulos de biomassas verde e seca, que a calagem e a gessagem no solo interferem no crescimento e morfologia radicular da alfafa, a qual apresenta crescimento secundário normal.

    The dentin hypersensitivity occurs as a result of the dentine exposition to the oral environment, due to loss or removal of enamel or cementum, or both. The hypersensitivity can persist, unless the sealing of the dentin tubules be carried out. Several treatments have been considered, but with less satisfactory and only temporary results. Among these treatments we can cite methods that promote the mechanical occlusion by deposition of substances inside of tubules, by topic application. Nowadays, among the treatments studied, there is the use of lasers, which leads to better clinical efficiency by promoting fusion and re-solidification of the dentin surface, obliterating total or partially the dentin tubules. This in-vitro study was carried out in order to evaluate the efficiency of the Nd:YAG laser in promoting the fusion and re-solidification of the dentin surface, and to evaluate parameters of irradiation typically used, comparing results using photoinitiator with those without it. By observation of the dentin surface, using Scanning Electron Microscopy, it was found extensive areas of fusion and re-solidification, in those groups with photoinitiator, being this technique an efficient resource in the treatment of the dentin hypersensitivity.

    High success rates are achieved in conventional endodontic treatment of vital pulp teeth. However, in cases of non-vital pulp, a decrease in the rate of success occurs due to difficulties in achieving a complete disinfection of the root canals system. Some bacteria, such as Enterococcus faecalis, are frequently found in cases of endodontic treatment failure due to their high resistance to the conventional endodontic treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of a high power diode laser irradiation in bacterial reduction of contaminated canals associated with dressing compose by calcium hydroxide paste propylene glycol and camphorated paramonochlorophenol. Eighty-two root canals were infected in vitro with Enterococcus faecalis in a concentration of 1x10{sup 8} CFU/ml. Specimens were high intensity irradiated with a diode laser model Opus 10, at a wavelength of 830 nm. Two different parameters were employed in continuous mode: 3 W and 2,5 W with a 360 {mu}m optical fiber at an angle of approximately 5 degrees respect to the dentine surface during 5 seconds, in 4 applications, with 20 seconds intervals among them. After these proceedings specimens were vortexed in peptone water and dilutions performed. Aliquots of the dilution were plated on m-Enterococcus agar, incubated, and the Colonies Forming Units (CFU) of ali groups was counted. The results showed a significant reduction of bacteria on ali groups after laser irradiation. A high reduction rate was achieved: 98.5% immediately after the laser irradiation; 48 hours after, the reduction was of 96,73% and, finally, a 100% reduction was achieved through the combination of laser irradiation and a long lasting dressing of calcium hydroxide paste, propylene glycol and camphorated paramonochlorophenol. High rates of bacteria reduction were achieved using the parameter of 3 W in continuous mode with the power of 2,9473 KW/cm{sup 2}. The temperature was monitored with a K-pipe thermocouple placed at the periapical point which width measured 1 mm, approximately. The maximum temperature variation was 7.45 deg C. Under electron microscope scanning, the control groups showed areas with smear layer covering the dentinal walls. The laser irradiated groups showed a smooth, uniform, clean appearance, with small areas of closed dentinal tubules without cracking alternately with areas of exposed open dentinal tubules. Some parts showed fusion of the dentinal mass (groups irradiated with 3 W). In groups where calcium hydroxide was associated with laser irradiation remains were found over the irradiated surface and, in many parts, the dentinal tubules could not be observed. The use of high intensity diode laser at 830 nm proved to be efficient and able to promote reduction in the Enterococcus faecalis population in the infected root canals. (author)

    Periodontal disease is caused by dental plaque and dental calculus on roots surfaces, specially on cervical areas. As dental plaque is the main cause and dental calculus a secondary one, it is practically impossible to separate one factor to the other one. In order to get periodontal tissue health it is necessary to eliminate dental plaque and calculus from root surfaces. In this sense, Er:YAG laser comes in as an excellent way to control periodontal disease, not only, by removing calculus and dental plaque but also for its bacteria reduction. The aim of this study is to compare, by S.E.M., root surfaces changing when they are treated with curettes and ultrasonic scaling or Er:YAG laser irradiation with two different energy levels of 60 mJ/pulse and 100 mJ/pulse and repetition tax of 10 Hz (in the display). It is also objective of this study to check a possible thermic damage to pulp tissue when the roots surfaces are irradiated with Er:YAG laser. We used for this study, five human dental roots, each one of them were cut into four samples, giving us a total of twenty samples, which were divided in five groups of four samples each one. The control group, we did not indicated any kind of treatment. The first group, the roots samples were scaled and planned with Gracey curettes 5/6 and 7/8. The second group, the roots samples were treated with ultrasonic instruments. The third group was irradiated with Er:YAG laser using 60 mJ/pulse , 10 Hz and energy density of 4 J/cm{sup 2} (approximated). The fourth group was irradiated with Er:YAG laser using 100 mJ/pulse, 10 Hz and energy density of 7 J/cm{sup 2} (approximated). The results analysis showed that roots scaling either with Gracey curettes or with ultrasonic instruments created smear layer covering roots surfaces; roots surfaces irradiated with Er:YAG laser showed few roughness in the third group; roots surfaces irradiated with Er:YAG laser showed no smear layer and the Er:YAG laser irradiation did not bring any thermic damage to pulp tissue.

    Full Text Available Some root parameters such as distribution, length, diameter and dry matter are inherent to plant species. Roots can influence microbial population during vegetative cycle through the rhizodeposits and, after senescence, integrating the soil organic matter pool. Since they represent labile substrates, especially regarding nitrogen, they can determine the rate of nutrient availability to the next crop cultivated under no-tillage (NT. The root systems of two crop species: maize (Zea mays L. cultivar Cargill 909 and soybean [Glycine max (L. Merr.] cultivar Embrapa 59, were compared in the field, and their influence on spatial distribution of the microbial C and N in a clayey-textured Typic Hapludox cultivated for 22 years under NT, at Tibagi, State of Paraná (PR, Brazil, was determined. Digital image processing and nail-plate techniques were used to evaluate 40 plots of a 80 ´ 50 ´ 3 cm soil profile. It was observed that 36% and 30% of the maize and soybeans roots, respectively, are concentrated in the 0 to 10 cm soil layer. The percent distribution of root dry matter was similar for both crops. The maize roots presented a total of 1,324 kg C ha-1 and 58 kg N ha-1, with higher root dry matter density and more roots in decomposition in the upper soil layer, decreasing with depth. The soybean roots (392 kg C ha-1 and 21 kg N ha-1 showed higher number of thinner roots and higher density per length unity compared to the maize. The maize roots enhanced microbial-C down to deeper soil layers than did the soybean roots. The microbial N presented a better correlation with the concentration of thin active roots and with roots in decomposition or in indefinite shape, possibly because of higher concentration of C and N easily assimilated by soil microorganisms.Parâmetros radiculares como distribuição, comprimento, diâmetro e matéria seca são inerentes a cada espécie de planta.

    Full Text Available Arquiteturas reconfiguráveis são dispositivos de hardware capazes de modificar sua estrutura de hardware de acordo com a aplicação a ser executada. Tais dispositivos surgiram como uma alternativa às soluções de hardware tradicionais na tentativa de equilibrar flexibilidade e desempenho. Uma das principais formas de utilização de arquiteturas reconfiguráveis corresponde a um bloco reconfigurável anexado a um processador hospedeiro. Esse processador é responsável por executar diversas tarefas críticas, incluindo o particionamento hardware/software e indicar o momento do bloco reconfigurável executar. Apesar de existirem diversas propostas de arquiteturas reconfiguráveis na literatura, pouco se estudou sobre o impacto do processador hospedeiro na arquitetura. Nesse contexto, esse artigo apresenta um estudo sobre o impacto do processador hospedeiro no desempenho da arquitetura reconfigurável híbrida. Como estudo de caso foi realizada uma avaliação sobre o uso dos processadores SPARC V8 da Sun Microsystems e Nios II da Altera como processadores hospedeiros da arquitetura reconfigurável híbrida RoSA. O objetivo deste estudo é realizar a comparação entre o desempenho desses processadores e identificar qual deles é o mais adequado para anexar a arquitetura em questão. Os resultados mostraram que foi possível alcançar até 47% de ganho de desempenho com o uso do processador Nios II em comparação ao SPARC V8, indicando o primeiro como mais adequado para a arquitetura RoSA.

    The aim of this research was to obtain the line flow profile as affected by a weir installed on a natural channel. The channel flow was measured through a suppressed weir. In order to obtain the channel geometric parameters a profile cross section survey was performed at several points, adjusting equations of the power type to describe the top width and the flow area as a function of depth. To obtain the line flow, the numeric solution of Bernoulli equation was used through the finite differences technique. The line flow profile was similar to that observed in the field, suggesting the adequacy of the proposed methodology.

    KEY-WORDS: Open channel; gradually varied flow; backwater curve.

    O presente trabalho teve como objetivo a obtenção do perfil da linha d’água do remanso provocado pela instalação de um vertedor em um canal natural. A vazão do canal foi medida por um vertedor sem contração lateral instalado no canal utilizado neste estudo. Para a obtenção dos parâmetros geométricos do canal, procedeu-se ao levantamento do perfil da sua seção transversal em vários pontos. Com os dados obtidos, ajustaram-se as equações do tipo potencial para descrever a largura do espelho d’água e a área molhada em função da profundidade. Para a obtenção do perfil da linha d’água, empregou-se a solução numérica da equação de Bernoulli pela técnica das diferenças finitas. O perfil da linha d’água simulado aproximou-se do observado no campo, o que confere adequação à metodologia proposta neste trabalho.

    Non vital bleaching is simple, conservative procedure for esthetic correction of discolored endodontically treated teeth. The aim of this study was to determine and compare the amount of peroxide leakage from four different bleaching agents i.e superoxol, sodium perborate, combination of superoxol & sodium perborate and carbamide peroxide during intracoronal bleaching, as the safe and effective bleaching is the need of the hour. 50 extracted maxillary centrals were selected for the study. Following standardized protocol access, cleaning and shaping by step back technique and obturation was done using guttapercha and AH plus sealer. Access was sealed with Cavit G and outer root surface was coated with wax and nail varnish. The teeth were separated into crown and root and the root portion was placed in plastic tube containing distilled water for 7days.After incubation, 3mm of gutta-percha was removed below CEJ and 2mm glass ionomer cement base was placed. Grouped into five categories based on the bleaching agent placed in pulp chamber as -group1 (control)-distilled water, group 2-sodium perborate with distilled water , group 3- 30% hydrogen peroxide ,group 4-mixture of sodium perborate and 30% hydrogen peroxide and group 5-10% carbamide peroxide gel. Peroxide leakage was measured after 24hrs using ferrothiocyanate method and optical density using spectrophotometer. Statistical analysis of the data was conducted using ANOVA and multiple comparisons within the groups was done using BONFERRONI method (Post-Hoc tests). The results showed highest peroxide penetration from 30% hydrogen peroxide followed by mixture of sodium perborate with 30% hydrogen peroxide, mixture of sodium perborate with distilled water and least penetration from 10% carbamide peroxide gel. The results were statistically significant. Radicular peroxide leakage in 10% carbamide peroxide was significantly lower than the other tested bleaching agents making it a very safe alternative for intracoronal

    Odontogenic cysts viz Odontogenic Keratocyst (OKC), Dentigerous Cyst (DC) and Radicular Cyst (RC) occur commonly in the oral and maxillofacial region. Cytokeratin (CK) expression studies have been done to evaluate diagnostic accuracy, role in pathogenesis, elucidate behaviour and role in treatment protocols. However, variations have been reported in the expression of CK patterns in these odontogenic cysts, which could be due to the lack of standardization of laboratory techniques. The present study has tried to shed light on CK 18 and 19 expression in odontogenic cysts and offer the brief review of previous studies on these CK. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the intensity and expression patterns of CK 18 and 19 in OKCs, DCs and RCs. A total of 60 cases, 20 each of OKC, DC and RC were confirmed histologically and evaluated for immunohistochemical expression pattern and intensity of CK 18 and 19. A focal and variable expression of CK 18 was observed in 25% of OKCs, 15% of DCs and 10% of RCs. CK 19 was expressed in 75% of OKCs and 100% in DCs as well as RCs. The intensity and expression of Cytokeratin 19 was more in all three cysts compared to Cytokeratin 18.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression and localization of tight junction proteins (TJPs) or claudins in the keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT) and to correlate with its biological behavior. Five claudins (-1, -3, -4, -5, and 7) were examined immunohistochemically in 25 KCOTs and compared with 10 dentigerous cysts (DCs) and 10 radicular cysts (RCs). Marked claudin-3 loss of expression in KCOT basal layer (n=24/25; 96%) compared with DCs (n=1/10; 10%) and RCs (n=5/10; 50%) (P<.05) suggests that claudin-3 downregulation may indicate altered or loss of basal cell polarity and impaired barrier function of KCOT lining epithelium and this might contribute indirectly to its biological behavior. In contrast, claudins-1, -4, -5, and -7 distribution patterns were less distinctive in all three entities, suggesting that these TJP molecules probably play limited roles in influencing their different growth potentials. Present findings suggest that differential claudin expressions in the lining epithelium of KCOTs, DCs, and RCs probably reflect their neoplastic or nonneoplastic nature.

    The aim of this study was to assess the immunohistochemical expression of p63 protein, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and Notch-1 in the epithelial lining of radicular cysts (RC), dentigerous cysts (DC) and keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KOT). For this study, 35 RC, 22 DC and 17 KOT were used. The clinical and epidemiological data were collected from the patient charts filed in the Oral Pathology Laboratory, University of Ribeirão Preto, Brazil. Immunohistochemical reactions against the p63, EGFR and Notch-1 were performed in 3-µm-thick histological sections. The slides were evaluated according to the following criteria: negative: 50% of positive cells. Moreover, the intensity of EGFR and Notch-1 expressions was also evaluated. Fisher's exact test and Spearman's correlation coefficients were used for statistical analysis, considering a significance level of 5%. Almost all cases demonstrated p63, EGFR and Notch-1 expressions. The p63 expression was significantly higher in KOT (p<0.001). Positive correlation between these immunomarkers was observed. These findings suggest the participation of p63, EGFR and Notch-1 in the development, maintenance and integrity of cystic odontogenic epithelial lining, favoring lesion persistence. The high expression of p63 in KOT suggests that it may be related to their more aggressive biological behavior and marked tendency to recurrence.

    The enzyme-labeled antigen method was applied to visualize plasma cells producing antibodies to Porphyromonas gingivalis, flora of the human oral cavity. Antibodies to P. gingivalis have reportedly been detected in sera of patients with periodontitis. Biotinylated bacterial antigens, Ag53, and four gingipain domains (Arg-pro, Arg-hgp, Lys-pro, and Lys-hgp) were prepared by the cell-free protein synthesis system using the wheat germ extract. In paraformaldehyde-fixed frozen sections of rat lymph nodes experimentally immunized with Ag53-positive and Ag53-negative P. gingivalis, plasma cells were labeled with biotinylated Arg-hgp and Lys-hgp. Antibodies to Ag53 were detected only in the nodes immunized with Ag53-positive bacteria. In two of eight lesions of gingival radicular cyst with inflammatory infiltration, CD138-positive plasma cells in frozen sections were signalized for Arg-hgp and Lys-hgp. An absorption study using unlabeled antigens confirmed the specificity of staining. The AlphaScreen method identified the same-type antibodies in tissue extracts but not in sera. Antibodies to Ag53, Arg-pro, and Lys-pro were undetectable. In two cases, serum antibodies to Arg-hgp and Lys-hgp were AlphaScreen positive, whereas plasma cells were scarcely observed within the lesions. These findings indicate the validity of the enzyme-labeled antigen method. This is the very first application of this novel histochemical technique to human clinical samples.

    Previous case reports, case series, and pilot studies have suggested that slump stretching may enhance the effects of spinal mobilization and stabilization exercises in patients with non-radicular low back pain (NRLBP). The purpose of this trial was to determine if slump stretching results in improvements in pain, disability, and fear and avoidance beliefs in patients with NRLBP with neural mechanosensitivity. Sixty patients, 18–60 years of age presenting with NRLBP with symptom duration >3 months, were randomized into one of two, 3-week physical therapy programs. Group one received lumbar spinal mobilization with stabilization exercises while group two received slump stretching in addition to lumbar spinal mobilization with exercise. Outcomes including the modified Oswestry disability index (ODI), numeric pain rating scale (NPRS), and the fear–avoidance belief questionnaire (FABQ) were collected at baseline, and at weeks 1, 2, 3, and 6. A doubly multivariate analysis of variance revealed a significant group–time interaction for ODI, NPRS, and FABQ. There were large within-group changes for all outcomes with Pmobilization and stabilization exercises when treating NRLBP. PMID:23372392

    Full Text Available Background: Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9 have been implicated in the pathogenesis of cysts. Both these factors seem to be interrelated to each other. The importance of the MMPs in the induction of the angiogenic process has recently been described. MMPs, which are produced by microvascular endothelial cells, break down the extracellular matrix. This is one of the earliest and sustained events in the process of new capillary formation. Thus, we studied the expression of VEGF and MMP-9 in Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs, dentigerous cysts (DCs and radicular cysts (RCs. Materials and Methods: Ten cases each of KCOTs, DCs and RCs and were included in the study and immunohistochemistry was performed using anti-VEGF and anti-MMP-9 antibody using standard protocol. Result: When the data of positive cells in the epithelium of KCOTs was compared with DCs and RCs, it showed highly significant results (P < 0.05. Furthermore, the expression of VEGF and MMP-9 in the stroma of KCOTs showed a significant result when compared to DCs and RCs. The expression of VEGF in inflammatory cells was more in RCs when compared to DCs. Also, the expression of MMP-9 was more in RCs and DCs as compared to KCOTs. Conclusion: Higher expression of VEGF and MMP-9 in KCOTs could be responsible for the aggressive behavior of this cyst that is currently considered a cystic tumor rather than a developmental cyst.

    Full Text Available O investimento em publicidade no Brasil cresceu 55% nos últimos entre 2010 e 2014, fortemente puxado pelos meios de comunicação de massa, que seguem uma tendência de queda de audiência sem que haja uma redução correspondente no seu custo. Este comportamento explica-se em grande medida pelo modelo híbrido de remuneração de agências de comunicação no país: parte feita pelo anunciante e outra pelos grandes veículos, em especial os de televisão. Adicionalmente, as métricas tradicionais utilizadas para definição do plano de mídia levam em consideração variáveis como cobertura e frequência, que privilegiam veículos de massa e não levam em consideração o resultado de venda gerado, fator determinante para as empresas. Tomando como base um estudo de caso em uma empresa de banda larga residencial em São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro, este trabalho objetiva contribuir para o processo de decisão de compra de mídia, identificando os meios e formatos de mídia mais eficazes nos canais de venda receptivos. O estudo apresenta uma modelagem estatística que destaca o resultado incremental de cada meio e seu respectivo custo, demonstrando aqueles que trazem maior retorno de venda ao negócio. Os resultados apontam que os meios e formatos que mais receberam aporte de investimento não tiveram melhor desempenho enquanto outros com investimento menos representativo demonstraram potencial para alavancar o resultado da empresa, ao apresentar melhor custo-benefício. Conclui-se, portanto, que há alternativas mais eficazes para a empresa estudada, por meio de ajuste no mix de mídia.

Pôde-se observar que o maior número de patentes referiu-se ao código A23L1/00 - alimentos ou produtos alimentícios: a sua preparação ou tratamento e houve um crescimento exponencial em relação ao depósito de patentes nos últimos 10 anos, sendo os Estados Unidos o país líder em número de patentes depositadas (60%. A Firmenich e CIE lidera o ranking com mais patentes depositadas. Em relação à área de atuação, predomina a indústria alimentícia (69%. No que diz respeito ao Brasil, o país aparece com apenas 1 patente detentora desta tecnologia, sendo um número bastante reduzido o que mostra a falta de incentivo neste setor. Diante dos resultados obtidos, concluiu-se que, apesar de ser uma tecnologia recente, observa-se uma tendência ao crescimento de depósito de patentes.

    Full Text Available Com o objetivo de avaliar a capacidade de crescimento de raízes em camadas de solo compactadas, quatro espécies de plantas de cobertura (amaranto, milheto ADR 500, capim pé-de-galinha e kenaf foram cultivadas em anéis de PVC, com níveis de compactação em subsuperfície (densidade do solo: 1,18; 1,34; 1,51 e 1,60 Mg m-3, sendo o experimento conduzido em casa de vegetação, utilizando-se de um Latossolo Vermelho distroférrico. A camada compactada em subsuperfície foi restritiva ao crescimento de raízes das espécies estudadas, ocasionando a concentração de raízes na camada superficial. O milheto ADR 500 e o amaranto foram as espécies que se destacaram na produção de massa seca da parte aérea e conseguiram desenvolver-se nas camadas compactadas e abaixo delas. O milheto ADR500 apresentou maior densidade de comprimento radicular em todas as camadas. O capim pé-de-galinha e o amaranto tiveram comportamento semelhante quanto à densidade de comprimento radicular. O capim pé-de-galinha e o kenaf apresentaram menor massa seca de raízes em relação às demais espécies. O kenaf apresentou menores valores de massa seca da parte aérea, mas não foi afetado pela presença de camadas compactadas.With the objective of evaluate the root growth capacity in the compacted soil layer, four vegetal species of the cover crops (amaranth, pearl millet ADR500, finger millet and kenaf were cultivated in columns of PVC with increasing levels of subsurface compaction (soil bulk densities: 1.18; 1.34; 1.51 and 1.60 Mg m-3. The experiment was carried out in a greenhouse conditions, using a Dusky Red Latosol. The subsurface compacted layer was restrictive to the roots growth of the studied species, causing the root concentrating to the surface.

    Full Text Available O experimento foi realizado em um latossolo vermelho-escuro distrófico, textura média, em Botucatu (SP, com o objetivo de avaliar os efeitos da calagem na correção da acidez do solo e no desenvolvimento do sistema radicular do amendoim, utilizando quatro doses de calcário dolomítico calcinado - 0, 4, 6 e 8 t/ha - e dois cultivares de amendoim: Tatu e Tupã. O delineamento experimental empregado foi o de blocos ao acaso em parcelas subdivididas, com três repetições. Verificou-se que a calagem proporcionou correção da acidez do solo e aumentou os teores de cálcio e magnésio trocáveis até 40 cm de profundidade. Esse efeito foi constatado três meses após a aplicação de calcário e perdurou até, pelo menos, dezesseis meses. A densidade de raízes foi maior nos primeiros 20 cm, onde, na linha de semeadura, apresentou correlação com parâmetros da fertilidade do solo, principalmente com o teor de cálcio. A calagem aumentou a absorção de cálcio pelo amendoim, atingindo o máximo, com teores, no solo, de 25,3 mmolc /dm3, na camada de 0-20 cm, e 8,9 mmolc /dm3, na de 20-40 cm. Não houve diferença entre os cultivares Tatu e Tupã quanto à absorção de cálcio do solo.

    The aim of this study was to compare the immunohistochemical expression of nuclear factor κB (NF-κB), matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9), and CD105 in odontogenic keratocysts (OKCs), dentigerous cysts (DCs), and radicular cysts (RCs). Twenty cases of OKCs, 20 DCs, and 20 RCs were analyzed. A labeling index (LI), which expresses the percentage of NF-κB-stained nuclei, was calculated for the analysis of NF-κB expression. Expression of MMP-9 in the epithelium and in the capsule of each lesion was scored as 0 (50% stained cells). In addition, MMP-9 immunostaining was analyzed in endothelial cells of vessels with a conspicuous lumen. The angiogenic index was determined based on the number of anti-CD105 antibody-stained microvessels. In the epithelial component, the NF-κB LI was higher in OKCs than in DCs and RCs (P cysts showed a predominance of score 2 in OKCs (80%) and RCs (50%) and of score 1 in DCs (75%; P = .002). Mean microvessel count was high in RCs (16.9), followed by DCs (12.1) and OKCs (10.0; P = .163). No significant difference in microvessel count according to the expression of MMP-9 was observed between groups (P = .689). The results suggest that the more aggressive biologic behavior of OKCs is related to the higher expression of MMP-9 and NF-κB in those lesions. The differences in the biologic behavior of the lesions studied do not seem to be associated with the angiogenic index. Copyright © 2011 Mosby, Inc. All rights reserved.

    This study aimed to detect the immunoexpression of interleukin-21 (IL-21) and receptor activator. of nuclear factor KB ligand (RANKL) in periapical granulomas (PGs) and radicular cysts (RCs). The interaction of IL-21 with RANKL and its role in periapical pathogenesis were also speculated. A total of 32 PGs and 23 RCs were selected as experimental samples. Lesion size and occurrence of tenderness were recorded. Up to 10 healthy gingival tissues were collected as normal control samples. All tissues were subjected to immunohistocheincal analysis with anti-human IL-21 and RANKL polyclonal antibodies. The correlations of IL-21 with RANKL, lesion size, and the occurrence of tenderness of the PGs and RCs were evaluated. IL-21-positive cells were detected in all periapical lesion tissues but not in normal tissues. In the cyst group and granuloma group, the corresponding expression levels of IL-21 were 59.92±6.57 and 36.80± 6.81, whereas those of RANKL were 68.81±18.59 and 36.12±14.87, respectively. Moreover, t-test revealed a significantly higher expression of IL-21 and RANKL in RCs than in PGs (P<0.05). IL-21 and RANKL were positively correlated in both PGs and RCs (P<0.05). Furthermore, IL-21 was correlated with lesion size (P<0.05). This study demonstrated that IL-21 is potentially involved in the pathogenesis of apical periodontitis lesions. A role in the exacerbation of chronic inflammation, as well as in bone resorption, is suspected. Further studies are required to elucidate the specific functions of IL-21 in periradicular inflammatory processes.

    The present study is aimed at analyzing the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in the epithelial lining of odontogenic keratocyst (OKC), dentigerous cyst (DC), radicular cyst (RC) in order to understand the possible role of iNOS with special reference to its neoplastic nature and local aggressive of cysts. The primary aim of the following study is to analyze the immunohistochemical expression of iNOS and secondary aim is to compare the iNOS expression, pattern and intensity of staining among the epithelial linings of OKC, DC and RC. iNOS in the epithelial lining cells were analyzing in 10 OKC's, 10 DC's and 10 RC's using immunohistochemistry. The percentage of positive cells was assessed and presented as mean ± standard deviation. The correlation with respect to the intensity and percentage of staining within the epithelial linings of OKCs, DCs and RCs was carried out using (analysis of variance and Student's t-test) Chi-square test. Staining intensity of iNOS portion was seen in the entire thickness of the epithelial linings of OKC, whereas in DC's only one case had entire thickness of the epithelial lining staining and in RC's none of the cases showed entire thickness of staining. On comparing the staining intensity of iNOS between OKC, DC and RC groups, using Chi-square test, there was a statistically significant difference between these groups (P cysts. iNOS was over expressed in OKCs when compared with DC and RC suggesting that iNOS may contribute to the aggressive behavior of OKC. This is yet another evidence to support that OKC is the neoplasm.

O objetivo do trabalho foi determinar, por meio da avaliação da arquitetura do sistema radicular, a melhor fase de desenvolvimento da muda para o transplante, ao campo, do porta-enxerto de videira 'IAC 766' Campinas, em Marialva - PR. As plantas foram avaliadas aos 60; 90; 120; 150 e 180 dias após a estaquia lenhosa em substratos contidos em sacos plásticos de 20cm de largura por 30cm de altura. As raízes foram expostas e fotografadas, avaliando-se comprimento e área do sistema radicular pelo programa SIARCS 3.0. Foi utilizado também um diagrama de arquitetura radicular, atribuindo-se notas à conformação do sistema radicular e foi contado o número de raízes enoveladas. O delineamento experimental utilizado foi o de blocos inteiramente ao acaso, com cinco tratamentos e cinco repetições, com 10 plantas por parcela. Os dados foram submetidos à análise de regressão polinomial. Todas as características, com exceção das notas da arquitetura do sistema radicular, ajustaram-se ao modelo de regressão linear crescente. A melhor fase para o transplante da muda do porta-enxerto 'IAC 766' para o campo é aos 90 dias após a estaquia.In grapevine propagation with cuttings in containers it is important to avoid damages to root system during transplanting to the field.

    Full Text Available RESUMO O presente estudo objetivou comparar o repertório de habilidades sociais (HS de dependentes e não dependentes de álcool a fim de verificar se um menor repertório de HS constitui uma característica dessa população. Foram entrevistados 123 alcoolistas e 114 usuários de serviços de saúde com baixo ou nenhum consumo de álcool, utilizando questionário sociodemográfico, Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview e o Inventário de Habilidades Sociais. Os dados foram analisados quantitativamente e indicaram uma diferença significativa no repertório de HS, especificamente no fator de autocontrole da agressividade, indicando um pior desempenho dessa habilidade em alcoolistas. Os resultados sugerem que a avaliação dessa característica deva ser considerada no tratamento do alcoolismo e associada ao plano terapêutico.

    Full Text Available Foram estudados oito pacientes com Paralisia Periódica Familiar sob os aspectos clínico, hidro-eletrolítico, eletrofisiológico, histológico e terapêutico. Houve predomínio significante em pacientes do sexo masculino. A idade média do início da moléstia foi de 15 anos. As manifestações clínicas foram concor-dantes com as referidas na literatura. Todos os pacientes tinham a forma hipocalêmica exceto um que evoluiu com hipercalemia. Alguns pacientes (21,4% tinham natremias no limite superior da normalidade enquanto em um número igual de pacientes as natremias estavam elevadas, o que sugeria liberação de aldosterona. Os achados eletrofisiológicos foram concordantes com os da literatura. O estudo histológico de músculos realizado em cinco pacientes foi normal em 30% deles e, naqueles com crises repetidas e freqüentes, foram encontradas atrofias de fibras musculares. Foram feitos tratamentos preventivos, e nos pacientes com hipocalemia foram administradas doses suplementares de potássio em solução aquosa de 10-25% diariamente.

    Full Text Available Resumo Introdução A cavidade pulpar ainda é um mistério a ser desvendado, pois podem existir inúmeras ramificações que precisam ser esclarecidas para que o clínico possa interpretar e desenvolver o seu papel adequadamente. Uma das variações anatômicas que apresentam grande controvérsia na literatura é o reconhecimento da presença do canal cavo inter-radicular. Este canal tem origem no assoalho da câmara pulpar, percorre a dentina inter-radicular e alcança o ligamento periodontal na região de furca, constituindo uma das vias de comunicação entre o ligamento periodontal e o tecido pulpar, podendo servir como meio de contaminação. Objetivo Estudar a frequência do canal cavo inter-radicular em molares. Material e método Análise de cinco primeiros molares superiores, dez segundos molares superiores, dez primeiros molares inferiores e dez segundos molares inferiores, utilizando-se a microscopia eletrônica de varredura. Resultado Foi observada a presença de forames em 30% dos assoalhos e 50% das furcas dos primeiros molares inferiores, e 40% e 60% no assoalho e na furca dos segundos molares inferiores, respectivamente. O diâmetro desses forames variou de 32 µm até 312 µm. Conclusão A prevalência deste canal é muito variada ao se analisarem as diferentes metodologias.

  3. Feijão-de-porco (Canavalia ensiformis no controle da podridão radicular do meloeiro causada por associação de patógenos

    Maria Alice Formiga Porto

    Full Text Available RESUMO A ocorrência de doenças radiculares representa uma das principais causas de perda de rendimento na cultura do melão, com destaque para patógenos causadores das podridões de raízes e colos, como os fungos Fusarium solani, Macrophomina phaseolina e Rhizoctonia solani, observados no meloeiro tanto de forma isolada quanto associada. A utilização de material vegetal e restos de culturas, além de melhorar as propriedades físicas do solo e favorecer a atividade microbiana neste ambiente, pode interferir negativamente sobre a população de patógenos. Portanto, o objetivo deste trabalho foi verificar o efeito da utilização do Feijão-de-porco [Canavalia ensiformis (L. DC] no manejo da podridão radicular do meloeiro (Cucumis melo L. causada pelos patógenos F. solani, M. phaseolina e R. solani, quando sozinhos ou associados. O experimento foi realizado em casa de vegetação no delineamento de blocos casualizados, com esquema fatorial 8 x 4, sendo 8 tipos de fungos/associações e 4 formas de manejo, com 4 repetições. As características avaliadas foram: incidência de podridão radicular das plantas de melão no final do ciclo, prevalência dos patógenos e a massa da matéria seca do meloeiro. O feijão-de-porco em cobertura proporciona menor incidência de podridão radicular no meloeiro quando Fusarium solani está sozinho. Macrophomina phaseolina é o fungo que prevalece na maioria das associações nas quais está presente. Aumento na massa da matéria seca do meloeiro foi observado quando aplicado o mulch (filme de polietileno preto nos tratamentos com associação de F. solani + R. solani e no solo não infestado.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: A histerectomia é uma operação muito realizada, entretanto há poucos trabalhos na literatura nacional sobre suas indicações, técnica e complicações. O objetivo deste trabalho é avaliar estes procedimentos realizados na Disciplina de Ginecologia e Obstetrícia da Faculdade de Medicina do Triângulo Mineiro. MÉTODO: Estudo retrospectivo de 470 histerectomias abdominais e 84 vaginais foi conduzido analisando as indicações, tempo de cirurgia e internação, tipo de incisão e morbidez. RESULTADOS: As principais indicações foram o mioma uterino e o prolapso uterino para as histerectomias abdominais e vaginais, respectivamente. As complicações intra-operatórias aconteceram em 3,4% e as pós-operatórias em 2,4% do total de casos. Nenhuma diferença estatística foi encontrada no número de complicações em relação ao tipo de incisão (vertical ou transversal. O tempo de cirurgia e o de hospitalização foram estatisticamente maiores nas incisões verticais. A hemorragia foi a mais freqüente complicação intra-operatória e a infecção da incisão operatória foi a mais freqüente no pós-operatório. CONCLUSÕES: A histerectomia é um procedimento de baixo risco, no entanto, a realização de revisões sobre indicações e complicações, e a pesquisa de melhores técnicas cirúrgicas são necessárias para torná-la cada vez mais segura.

  6. Valor do estudo citogenetico no transexualismo

    1976-09-01

    Full Text Available O transexualismo é caracterizado como uma entidade psiquiátrica, distinta do homossexualismo e travestismo, revendo-se suas manifestações sindrômicas. Discutem-se as duas principais causas etiológicas plausíveis do transexualismo, a saber: a hipótese psicoanalítica fundamentada na regressão psicossexual com estampagem da figura materna e o modelo neuro-endócrino que pressupõe alterações nos centros de identidade sexual do hipotámo. Com base nesta última explicação propõe-se, a exemplo do que parece ocorrer na síndrome de Morris, cujas células (XY não respondem ao efeito masculinizante da testosterona plasmática, que os transexuais devem possuir mosaicismo detectável ou críptico, quanto aos cromossomos sexuais, nos centros hipotalâmicos de identidade sexual que não respondem à secreção androgênica produzida pela gônada primitiva. Esta possibilidade explicaria a excessiva prevalência da síndrome entre homens, bem como a sua manifestação com feições típicas no sexo masculino e ainda a ocorrência esporádica da síndrome. O estudo citogenético revelou que a frequência (32% de mosaicismo quanto aos cromossomos sexuais em 25 transexuais é estatisticamente superior aos valores observados em 14 homossexuais e 40 controles normais, nos quais a proporção de mosaicismo é praticamente nula. Considera-se a possibilidade do critério cariotípico constituir valioso subsídio na diagnose da síndrome.

Não se extendem em discussão, nem comentarios, tampouco, relacionam suas verificações com o que já foi relatado sobre o assunto em trabalhos nacionais e estrangeiros, pelo fato de que, não se trata de um resultado definitivo e sim de atividades que irão proseguir. Os estudos sistematicos em torno da endemia esquistosomica foram executados em duas localidades diversas pela população e pela situação geografica e ecologica. Pontezinha é uma povoação de 1200 habitantes localizada proximo a um conjunto de charcos e lagõas de agua dôce onde pululam caramujos do tipo olivaceus de Spix, e apresenta uma taxa de infestação de 21,4% para individuos do sexo masculino, e de 14,7% para os do sexo feminino. A distribuição por grupos de idade mostra que a incidencia cresce até o grupo de 16 a 20 anos de idade, quando atinge a percentagem de 37,8%, para decrescer em seguida. Em Vitoria a incidencia foi maior nos indivíduos do sexo feminino, atingindo a taxa de 41,4%, dando o sexo masculino a taxa de 36,9%. Por idade a percentagem maxima é atingida pelo grupo de 11 a 15 anos. Vitoria é uma cidade de 1500 habitantes, construida á margem do rio Tapacurá, onde se encontram numerosos caramujos do tipo centimetralis Lutz. A divergencia de incidencia corre por conta dos habitos da população e pela utilização que ela faz do rio, sendo maior em Vitoria porque a proximidade do rio facilita o uso de suas aguas para banho e serviços domesticos, condicionando este ultimo fato, a maior infestação das mulheres. O estudo da frequencia da infestação dos caramujos por cercarias de diversos trematodios, permite suspeitar uma relação inversa entre a taxa de infestação e o diametro maximo atingido pelos caramujos, parecendo este fato confirmar os trabalhos de Vianna Martins sobre a identidade dos hospedeiros

    Chronic opioid therapy is associated with worse patient-reported outcomes (PROs) following spine surgery. However, little literature exists on the relationship between opioid use and PROs following epidural steroid injections for radicular pain. We evaluated the association between pre-injection opioid use and PROs following spine epidural steroid injection. This study is a retrospective analysis of a prospective longitudinal registry database. A total of 392 patients within our database who were undergoing epidural steroid injections (ESIs) at our institution for degenerative structural spine diagnoses and met our inclusion criteria were included in this study. Patient-reported outcomes for disability (Oswestry Disability Index/Neck Disability Index [ODI/NDI)]), quality of life (EuroQol-5D [EQ-5D]), and pain (Numerical Rating Scale scores for back pain, neck pain, leg pain, and arm pain [NRS-BP/NP/LP/AP]) were assessed at baseline and at 3 and 12 months post-injection. Multivariable proportional odds logistic regression models were created to examine the relati
