There is increasing evidence that the cells of the epithelial root sheath synthesize enamel matrix proteins and that these proteins play a fundamental role in cementogenesis and periodontal tissue formation. Emdogain, enamel matrix derivative (EMD), is a porcine enamel matrix derived product used to enhance regeneration of the peridontium after inflammatory(More)
We compared the clinical efficacy of autologous platelet gel (APG) and gelatine (CONT), including biomaterial evaluation. In a prospective, randomized, controlled trial, 64 patients undergoing complex coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery and/or aortic surgery, in whom the surgeon was able to identify a bleeding site for which conventional means to(More)
Casein phosphopeptides (CPP) are derived from casein, which accounts for 80% of the total protein in bovine milk . The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the potential use of a CPP-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) preparation as a transport medium for avulsed teeth. L929 fibroblastic cell line was plated in 24-well culture plates. Following(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial Fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia encountered following cardiac surgery. The most commonly administered drug used in treatment and prophylaxis is amiodarone which has several toxic effects on major organ functions. There are few clinical data concerning prevention of toxic effects and there is no routinely suggested agent. The aim(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the cytotoxic effects of various dental composites polymerized with two different curing units. METHODS Disc-shaped test samples of composites Filtek Z250, Filtek A110, Filtek P60, Filtek Supreme, and SDI Rok were polymerized using one quartz tungsten halogen (QTH) and one light emitting diode (LED) light(More)
OBJECTIVE This prospective randomized study compares full and reduced heparinization on novel hyaluronan-based heparin-bonded circuits vs. uncoated controls under challenging clinical setting including biomaterial evaluation. METHODS 100 patients undergoing reoperation for coronary artery bypass grafting were allocated into two equal groups (n = 50):(More)
OBJECTIVES The relative benefits of strategic leukofiltration on polymer-coated and low-dose heparin protocol on heparin-coated circuits were studied across EuroSCORE patient risk strata for three different cohorts. METHODS In a prospective, randomized study, 270 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting were allocated into three groups (n =(More)
Heparin is a universal drug used frequently for its anticoagulant effects. The variabilities in distribution and tendency of heparin to accumulate in tissues cause increased tissue concentrations despite normal serum levels. We aimed to underline the toxic effects of heparin in cell culture make projections for clinical applications. L929 mouse fibroblastic(More)
