STUDY OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to analyze mortality in patients with obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) treated with positive airway pressure (PAP) and to know whether PAP compliance affects survival, as well as to investigate the prognostic value of several pretreatment variables. DESIGN AND PATIENTS A study was made of an(More)
BACKGROUND Gynaecomastia has been described in HIV-infected men undergoing highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). However, there are insufficient data on the relationship between gynaecomastia and any specific antiretroviral drug and hormone abnormality. OBJECTIVE To assess the frequency of gynaecomastia in HIV-infected men receiving HAART and its(More)
AIM To compare the use of periapical radiographs and digital panoramic images displayed on monitor and glossy paper in the assessment of the periapical status of the teeth using the periapical index (PAI). METHODOLOGY A total of 86 subjects were examined. All participants underwent a full-mouth radiographic survey (14 periapical radiographs) and a(More)
BACKGROUND Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and metabolic syndrome have been related to periodontitis. This study's objective is to establish the relationship between them in pregnant women affected by gestational glucose metabolism disorder. METHODS In 188 pregnant women with positive O'Sullivan test (POT) results, an oral glucose tolerance test(More)
AIMS Intraventricular conduction defects (IVCDs) can impair prognosis of heart failure (HF), but their specific impact is not well established. This study aimed to analyse the clinical profile and outcomes of HF patients with LBBB, right bundle branch block (RBBB), left anterior fascicular block (LAFB), and no IVCDs. METHODS AND RESULTS Clinical variables(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the importance of cytologic grading of breast carcinoma and its association with histologic grading and the existence of axillary lymph node metastasis. STUDY DESIGN Aspirates and surgical samples from 100 patients with invasive ductal breast carcinoma not otherwise specified were studied. In 50 patients, > or = 1 metastatic nodes(More)
AIM To compare the use of film-based periapical radiographs and digital panoramic images displayed on monitor and glossy paper in the assessment of the periapical status of the teeth. METHODOLOGY A total of 86 subjects were examined. All participants underwent a full-mouth radiographic survey (14 periapical radiographs) and a digital panoramic(More)
INTRODUCTION This study attempts to describe the results obtained in the HIV resistance study performed with clinical samples obtained from patients receiving "HAART" therapy and to compare the results using different interpretation algorithms. METHODS 397 samples have been analysed (TRUGENE HIV-1 GENOTYPING kit). The results were interpreted with the(More)
UNLABELLED Few studies assess repeatability and reproducibility in registers of resonance frequency analysis (a value of dental implant stability). OBJECTIVE Few studies assess repeatability and reproducibility in resonance frequency analyses (implant stability evaluation). This study is aimed at assessing reliability (repeatabilty and reproducibility) in(More)
OBJECTIVES 1) To evaluate and compare the stability of two types of implants in an animal model after preparing the implant bed with various sequences of osteotomes in bone type IV. 2) To evaluate the hypothesis of whether or not the sequence of using osteotomes influences the primary implant stability. MATERIAL AND METHOD We selected bone from cow ribs,(More)
