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. The morphological changes of cultured human gingival fibroblasts were investigated by scanning electron microcopy (SEM). Four different(More)
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)
Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans is an important pathogen related to aggressively progressive periodontal breakdown in adolescents and adults. The species can be divided into six serotypes (a–f) according to their surface carbohydrate antigens. Recently, a new serotype g of A. actinomycetemcomitans was proposed. The aim of the present study was to(More)
A phase II clinical trial of VP-16-213 was carried out in 71 patients with small cell and non-small cell carcinoma of the lung. Forty-eight evaluable cases consisted of 36 small cell carcinomas, 7 epidermoid carcinomas, 4 adenocarcinomas and one unclassified carcinoma. VP-16-213 was administered by drip infusion at dosages of 60-100mg/m2/day for(More)
