Thirty patients with extremely resorbed maxillae had reconstructive bone grafts from the ala iliaca and endosseous implants in a one-stage procedure. The first ten patients constituted a development group and the following 20 patients a routine group. The marginal bone level and implants success rate was evaluated in a prospective long-term follow-up for a(More)
Thirty patients with severely resorbed edentulous maxillae underwent combined treatment of iliac bone onlay graft and titanium implants. The patients were followed for 3 years. They were radiographically examined before surgery to evaluate the bone volume at the intended implant sites. Only 13/156 implant sites were suitable for implant insertion. The bone(More)
The association of human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) and multiple sclerosis (MS) has been supported by several immunological and molecular studies. Recently, membrane cofactor protein (CD46) has been identified as the cellular receptor for the A and B variants of HHV-6. Elevated levels of soluble CD46 (sCD46) have been reported in the serum and CSF of MS(More)
BACKGROUND Directed ultrasonic screening for carotid stenosis is cost-effective in populations with > 5% prevalence of the diagnosis. Occasionally, calcifications in the area of the carotid arteries are incidentally detected on odontological panoramic radiographs. We aimed to determine if directed screening for carotid stenosis with ultrasound is indicated(More)
1. The effect of inducing drug therapy on the relationship between in vitro (cytochrome P-450 content) and in vivo (antipyrine kinetics) was investigated by comparing eleven consecutively treated epileptics with two groups of controls, eleven subjects with normal liver histology and eleven disease matched non-epileptics, all underwent diagnostice liver(More)
