The morphology of the root apex was analysed by observation of the anatomy of specimens obtained by apicoectomy in cases of refractory apical periodontitis that did not respond to nonsurgical root canal treatment. Apical ramifications were present in 19 (70%) of the roots, while one were found in the remaining eight (3%) roots. This frequency is far higher(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the influence of collagen coating on titanium on the initial attachment of human gingival fibroblasts for the development of the implant with periimplant soft tissue attachment.

We describe the enucleation of large radicular cysts to the maximum extent, and their treatment based on the concept of marsupialization and drainage after apicoectomy. Marsupialization requires a long period for healing, imposing a burden on the patient with regard to postoperative management. Considering this, together with the difficulty involved in the(More)
The efficacy, safety and utility of sisomicin (SISO) followed intravenous infusion were evaluated in 35 cases with various respiratory infections. For many cases, SISO was given at a daily dosage of 100 mg, and a single dose was infused over about 1 hour. Clinical efficacy was evaluable in 28 cases including pneumonia (14 cases), bronchitis (8 cases),(More)
