INTRODUCTION Several noninvasive methods are used for 3-dimensional (3D) morphologic facial and dental analysis to aid practitioners during diagnosis and treatment planning. Integrating dental and facial noninvasive 3D reproduction could improve the efficacy of treatment management. METHODS Dental virtual model and soft-tissue facial morphology were(More)
The repeatability of a non-invasive digital protocol proposed to evaluate the three-dimensional (3D) position of the occlusal plane in the face is assessed. Dental virtual models and soft tissue facial morphology of 20 adult subjects were digitally integrated using a 3D stereophotogrammetric imaging system. The digital 3D coordinates of facial and dental(More)
A girl with fully expressed osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis (OS) was also found to have a contraction of the two visual fields, a sign never previously described in OS syndrome. We suggest that the visual field defect is a component manifestation of OS syndrome, whose pathogenesis is represented by distortion of the optic canal and narrowing of(More)
PURPOSE To report on the outcome of conventional therapy in patients with Coats' disease. METHODS Retrospective analysis of the charts of thirteen patients with Coats' disease. RESULTS Mean age of 9 male (70%) and 4 female (30%) patients was 17.7 (range, 5-33) years; one female had bilateral disease. Eleven eyes with retinal telangiectasia and exudation(More)
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) that are derived from stem cells are proving to be promising therapeutic options. We herein investigate the therapeutic potential of EVs that have been derived from different stem cell sources, bone-marrow (MSC) and human liver (HLSC), on mesangial cells (MCs) exposed to hyperglycaemia. By expressing a dominant negative STAT5(More)
PURPOSE To better manage dental treatment outcome, a previsualization of desired appearances can be used to understand patients' wishes. A deeper comprehension of labial modifications related to hard-tissue movements is advantageous. The purpose of the study was to evaluate tooth restoration-induced labial displacements in three dimensions. MATERIALS AND(More)
In a 71-year-old patient with bilateral open-angle glaucoma, intracorneal blood was found after a canaloplasty procedure in the right eye. Six weeks after surgery on ultrasound biomicroscopy examination, liquified blood and blood clots could be observed nasally in the deep corneal stroma close to the Descemet's membrane. The intracorneal blood was washed(More)
Morphological changes in three-dimensional (3D) dentolabial relationships during ageing were assessed in healthy individuals. 38 subjects with healthy dentition were analysed. They were divided into a youthful group (21-34 years, mean 26 years, SD 4) and an older group (45-65 years, mean 53 years, SD 5). Stone labial and dental models were made, digitized(More)
