Necrotizing fasciitis of the head and neck is an uncommon, potentially fatal , soft tissue infection characterized by extensive necrosis and gas formation in the subcutaneous tissue and fascia. The purpose of this report is to heighten the awareness of this infection. The article also outlines an appropriate management strategy for use in the treatment of(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluates the efficacy of platelet rich plasma (PRP) & porous hydroxyapatite crystals in bone regeneration after surgical removal of mandibular third molar with the help of radiographs and its comparison with control side. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 40 patients; both male and female aged between 18 and 35 years, who had impacted(More)
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES This comparative study compares the primary and secondary healing after surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars, evaluating and monitoring the extent of swelling and severity of pain and trismus. MATERIALS AND METHODS 60 patients (37 females, 23 males; age range 18-40 years) were included in the series. The patients were(More)
Odontogenic cysts in the maxilla are common but a malignant change in an odontogenic cyst is a comparatively a rare occurrence; however, these entities present with clinical and radiographic features similar to benign, expansible, central, odontogenic tumor, or cyst of the jaws. A patient reporting with squamous cell carcinoma arising from an odontogenic(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical use of amnion as a biodegradable graft material for lower anterior ridge vestibuloplasty. STUDY DESIGN Ten patients who had been referred for preprosthetic surgery underwent mandibular anterior ridge vestibuloplasty using Clark's technique and amniotic membrane as a graft material. Preoperative(More)
Ameloblastoma is an epithelial odontogenic tumour of the jaw and exhibits diverse microscopic patterns which occurs either singly or in combination with other patterns. Peripheral ameloblastoma is a rare odontogenic soft tissue tumor, derived from epithelial and/or mesenchymal elements being part of the tooth-forming apparatus. The lesions responsible for(More)
Fibro osseous lesions are benign mesenchymal skeletal tumours in which mineralized tissue, blood vessels and giant cells, in varied proportions replace normal bone. Included in this group are fibrous dysplasia (FD), cherubism, ossifying fibroma and osteoblastoma. Although fibro osseous lesions have similar histologic and radiographic features, they may(More)
Plant sterols have been reported to decrease plasma concentrations of cholesterol without any side effects. To evaluate the effects on plasma cholesterol concentrations and the hemorheological parameters, we performed a study with hypercholesterolemic patients (n = 19) treated with phytosterol-enriched milk (2 g/day). Hypercholesterolemic patients (n = 15)(More)
The aneurysmal bone cyst is a type of pseudocysts of the jaw. It is a nonneoplastic lesion of the bone, characterized by replacement with fibro-osseous tissue containing blood-filled sinusoidal or cavernous spaces. The lesion remains a relatively uncommon finding in the facial bones, and the cause and pathogenesis are yet to be elucidated. Aneurysmal bone(More)
We stimulated human erythrocytes obtained from patients with hypercholesterolemia (HC; n = 42), renal transplantation (RT; n = 18) and hypertension (HT; n = 10) with acetylcholine (ACh 10 microM) and measured the amperometric NO production, comparing with the NO levels achieved on erythrocytes of healthy persons (n = 27). We also measured the hemoglobin,(More)
