Renal transplantation has been very effective in the treatment of end-stage renal disease. Over 750 cases of successful pregnancies in these patients have been reported, and only 15 patients with sickle cell disease (homozygous hemoglobin S) have had renal allografts. The present study documents the first case of a successful pregnancy in a patient with(More)
The purpose of this case report is to present the results of Fibrin Adhesive System (FAS) application, a topical biological tissue adhesive in the treatment of maxillary buccal recessions. A 40-year-old male patient presented with a pair of class I buccal recession defects on maxillary cuspids. Clinical parameters were recorded at baseline, 1 month, and 3(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of recombinant platelet derived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB) on the cellular proliferation, morphology and adherence of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (PLFs) to the root surfaces of periodontally diseased and healthy human teeth roots at two different time periods. Primary cell cultures of(More)
BACKGROUND During the past two decades, dentists and microbiologists have relied on periodontal antibiotic therapy in the management of periodontitis. This association has accumulated and strengthened exponentially. Macrolides attain high therapeutic concentrations in infected tissue, so they are potentially a good choice for inhibiting invasive periodontal(More)
History teaches us that a great deal of effort is put forward in giving birth to a classification system, only to have it be quickly contradicted or condemned. Though we have made great strides towards the understanding of periodontitis in general, the bitter truth is that we have not hit the bull's eye on the true nature of etiopathogenesis. Until then any(More)
Low level laser has been documented in literature to promote wound healing by reducing postoperative inflammation, oedema and reduces pain. This case report demonstrates the safe and positive outcome of LLLT in conjunction with demineralised bone matrix of bovine origin in the surgical treatment of a periodontal infrabony defect. After surgical defect(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this first of its kind study was to analyse the growth, development and attachment of cultured human umbilical cord stem cells alone or supplemented with basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (bFGF) on both healthy and periodontally diseased tooth surfaces in vitro. METHODS Four groups of 12 root surface scaffolds each(More)
Neurofibromas-benign, slow-growing nerve sheath neoplasms composed of Schwann cells, perineural cells, and fibroblasts-are common neurogenic tumors on skin but uncommon intraorally. A diagnosis of neurofibroma can be established by clinical and histologic examinations. This case report describes an unusual presentation of solitary neurofibroma on the(More)
INTRODUCTION PerioChip a bovine origin gelatine based CHX chip has shown beneficial effects in the management of Chronic Periodontitis. A new fish collagen based CHX chip similar to PerioChip is currently available; however this product has not been thoroughly researched. AIM The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a new Piscean(More)
