BACKGROUND Tacrolimus-based immunosuppression seems safe and effective in liver and kidney transplantation. To assess the safety and efficacy of tacrolimus (TAC)-based immunosuppression after cardiac transplantation as well as the relative impact of tacrolimus on immunosuppression-related side effects such as hypertension and hyperlipidemia, we conducted a(More)
Mandibular onlay composite grafts (autogenous iliac bone and titanium cylindrical threaded endosseous dental implants) were placed in seven patients with advanced bone resorption. All seven patients have experienced uncomplicated healing and continuous, uninterrupted prosthesis use without soft tissue or mechanical complications for 1 to 4 years. This(More)
During a 12-year period (1984-1996), 118 maxillary inlay autogenous bone grafts and 248 commercially pure titanium threaded root-form endosseous implants were placed in 54 consecutively treated patients with compromised maxillary bone. In this retrospective clinical study, 3 groups of patients were reviewed, group selection being based on anatomic location(More)
During a 12-year period (1984 to 1997), 32 consecutive patients with advanced maxillary bone compromise received surgical-prosthodontic rehabilitation. The most frequent procedure used was maxillary augmentation with a free nonvascularized autogenous onlay block bone graft, and the average time of prosthesis function was 67 months. Twenty-eight patients(More)
Endosseous implants have been placed at the Mayo Clinic Department of Dental Specialties for over 12 years. On the basis of the clinical success of the osseointegration program, the use of implants has been expanded to include placement into tissue beds that have been exposed to therapeutic radiation. This article details preliminary data regarding implant(More)
Nineteen patients received tumoricidal doses of radiation and subsequently underwent mandibular endosseous implant reconstruction, followed by dental rehabilitation with complete arch fixed osseoprostheses. Eight of the 19 patients also underwent autogenous bone graft reconstruction for mandibular discontinuity. A surgical and prosthetic protocol for(More)
As more extensive craniofacial resections for recurrent orbital and nasoethmoidal carcinoma are performed, the need for complex external prostheses increases. A new method of stabilization for large prostheses using osseointegrated implants is presented. This is illustrated in a typical patient who underwent a large naso-orbital maxillary resection for(More)
