OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study is to assess the implant osteointegration, as well as the course of bone regeneration and healing processes, thanks to the sinus lift procedure and by using PRF as a filling material, in association with the Bio-Oss. MATERIALS AND METHODS 23 patients, requiring maxillary sinus lift in order to place implants into(More)
OBJECTIVES Virtually all early cases of knee osteoarthritis have degenerative medial meniscus lesions accompanying the chondral defects on MRI. It is difficult to determine if the symptoms are caused by the unstable meniscus or by osteoarthritis, hence unclear guidance towards treatment. We, therefore, aimed to determine the clinical improvement following(More)
OBJECTIVE Muscle-skeletal tumors represent a challenging pathology for orthopedic surgeons worldwide. The extremely invasive character, the local destruction, the high recurrence rate, the high incidence in young patients and the unfavorable prognosis are all very well known. For these patients it is very important to produce an accelerated functional,(More)
Normal healing of fractures is a complex process that relies heavily on a cascade of consecutive activations of immune cells and mediators. This mechanism somewhat overlaps with all processes related to bone metabolism, from the absence of unions to heterotopic ossifications and osteoporosis. We aimed to review and describe this intricate process of bone(More)
OBJECTIVES Aim of this work is to show the effectiveness of a protocol involving the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) as a grafting material in bone regeneration before dental implant rehabilitation. MATERIALS AND METHODS 127 patients, requiring maxillary sinus lift, were enrolled in a follow-up study plan, which established clinical and radiological(More)
In view of the increasing antibiotic resistance of anaerobic Gram-negative bacteria, we determined the antimicrobial profile of 55 periodontal anaerobic Gram-negative bacteria correlated with human infections, comprising 16 strains of Fusobacterium nucleatum and 39 strains of Prevotella spp. isolated from periodontal pockets of 26 adults suffering from(More)
INTRODUCTIONS Tumoral resections pose serious challenges because sufficient removal has to be balanced against function preservation. A particular type of resection is encountered when the tumor is located in the diaphysis. It can lead to an important gap which cannot always amend to bone grafting in the same procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS The aim of the(More)
OBJECTIVE Increase in ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstructions has led to a higher prevalence of patients with postoperative symptoms which require investigation. We aimed to investigate the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computer tomography (CT) in determining tunnel size and graft obliquity after single bundle ACL reconstruction.(More)
OBJECTIVE Besides than in the control of developmental events, axonal adhesive glycoproteins may be also involved in functions requiring fine organization and connectivity of the nervous tissue. We previously demonstrated morphological alterations and functional cerebellar deficits in transgenic mice (TAG/F3 mice) ectopically expressing the F3/Contactin(More)
