PURPOSE The objectives of this study were 1) to evaluate the survival rate for implants placed in maxillary sinuses augmented with autogenous calvarium bone graft and 2) to evaluate the feasibility, complications, and morbidity of this technique as well as patient satisfaction. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy-nine maxillary sinuses in 58 patients were(More)
In neurodegenerative diseases, progressive oxidative stress is a major event that precedes neuronal death. Oxidative stress is characterized by an imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants. This imbalance induced oxidative molecular and cell damage, reducing cellular viability. 3-Nitropropionic acid (3NP) causes oxidative stress and other molecular and(More)
The prognosis of giant cervical teratomas is determined by the severity of the associated airway obstruction. Ex-utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) is a technique to establish a patent airway before completion of birth, while the infant remains on placental support. We present two cases of newborns with cervical teratomas treated with the EXIT procedure. In(More)
In this study we analyzed the effects of melatonin (Mel, 1 mg/kg ip) on behavioral changes as well as cell and oxidative damage prompted by bilaterally olfactory bulbectomy. Olfactory bulbectomy caused an increase in lipid peroxidation products and caspase-3, whereas it prompted a decrease of reduced glutathione (GSH) content and antioxidative enzymes(More)
Acknowledgments This article has benefited from the valuable suggestions of Jesus Almendros (Universidad de Almería) and the kind assistance of Pilar Vargas (Universidad de La Rioja) Abstract It seems clear that there is plenty of room for improvement in the area of IS client-developer working relationship. On the client side, it is general to find(More)
A 36-year-old man had a history of recurrent respiratory infections and bilateral bronchiectasis. Sinus radiography showed absence of the frontal sinuses. Electron microscopy of the bronchial mucosa revealed ultrastructural ciliary abnormalities. The clinical features and diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia are described.
Second level therapeutic maneuvres for controlling intracranial hypertension (ICH) proposed by the European Brain Injury Consortium and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons include barbiturates, moderate hypothermia and more recently the decompressive craniectomy (DC).In most patients, ICP can be maintained below 25 mmHg after a DC. However,(More)
Behcet's disease in a 27-year-old male is described. The patient presented fever, dyspnea and hemoptysis. A chest X-ray revealed right hilar enlargement. Exploratory thoracotomy revealed a pulsating mass in the superior lobar artery consistent with aneurysm. Pulmonary biopsy confirmed necrotizing vasculitis of the tissue consistent with Behcet's disease.(More)
