A rat model of paraplegia with the characteristics of delayed paraplegia and transient ischemic dysfunction was developed to determine whether ischemic preconditioning (IPC) improved neurologic outcome. METHODS Rats underwent balloon occlusion of the(More)
The effect of a 5-day course of systemic metronidazole was investigated in 11 recall maintenance patients over a period of 3 months. Crevicular fluid flow, bleeding on probing, pocket depth, and composition of the subgingival microbiota as observed by dark-field microscopy, were measured. The study design allowed patients to act as their own controls. At(More)
Radionuclide brain scintigraphy is a commonly performed examination for the confirmation of brain death. Although the absence of scintigraphically detectable flow of lipophilic tracers to the brain combined with the lack of uptake in the brain is considered consistent with brain death in the appropriate clinical scenario, the cause of death itself is(More)
