The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of the pterygospinous and pterygoalar bony bridges and the variations in these bony bridges among Anatolians. A total of 452 adult dry skulls (258 males and 194 females) of the Anatolian population were investigated for both the pterygospinous and the pterygoalar bony bridges. In 80 of the 452 dry(More)
The aim was to evaluate histologically the inflammatory reactions and tissue responses to an experimental tricalcium phosphate cement (TCP) and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) when used as repair materials in furcation perforations in dogs. Perforations were performed in 24 mandibular premolars of six anaesthetised dogs and filled either with ProRoot MTA(More)
In this study the relationship between foot length, foot breadth, ball girth or foot circumference, height and weight of Turkish students aged between 17 and 25 was examined. It was noted that in both sexes the correlation between foot length and height was more significant than the correlation between foot length and weight. When the percentage ratio of(More)
Two methods can be used in order to demonstrate the nerve distribution of an organ. One is the three-dimensional reconstruction of the innervation pattern of the organ by tracing images of that organ from serial histological sections. The other is the in toto staining of the organ with subsequent clearing of the muscles. In the present study, in order to(More)
It is difficult to distinguish muscle, vessel, nerve, fascia, tendon and many other structures in fetal sections. The aim of the study reported here was to research the practicability of orcein-picroindigocarmine staining for distinguishing anatomic structures in histological sections containing complex structures. Histological serial sections of hand,(More)
PURPOSE Peri-implant dehiscence defects occur frequently after dental implant placement. Various graft materials and techniques are proposed for treatment. In this study, an injectable calcium phosphate cement (Augmentech, Wetzlar, Germany) applied to a peri-implant defect was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Standardized buccal dehiscence defects (5.8(More)
In this study, the relationship, between Foot Length, Toe Lengths, Ankle Circumference and Calf Circumference of the students aged 17-25 was examined. When looked at the correlation coefficients, a significant relationship between Foot Length, Ankle Circumference, Calf Circumference and T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 (Toe Lengths) was discovered (p < 0.05). However,(More)
Calcium phosphate has high osteotransductive potential. The injectable form of calcium phosphate cement (ICAP) can be used as an adjunctive supportive agent for dental implants. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of an ICAP on the reverse torque resistance of titanium implants. Two implant beds (total 24) were prepared in each proximal tibia of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficiency of injectable CaP cement as a graft material around dental implants in the maxillary sinus augmentation procedure. MATERIAL AND METHODS Bilateral sinus augmentation process was carried out in three sheep and two implants were inserted during the same session. Out of a total of 12(More)
An abnormally superficial course of the ulnar a. in the arm and forearm has long received the attention of anatomists and surgeons. In this study, such a case is reported and its importance from the viewpoint of reconstructive surgery stressed. The most striking findings were the origin of the superficial ulnar a. from the axillary a. and of the common(More)
