The success of an implant is determined by its integration into the tissue surrounding the biomaterial. Surface roughness and composition are considered to influence the properties of adherent cells. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of chemical composition and surface roughness of commercially pure titanium (Ti) and Ti-6A1-4V alloy (Ti-A)(More)
A study was undertaken to assess any differences between physicians' and nurses' estimates of burn size from drawings of 10 hypothetical patients with burns. Patient drawings were sent to the 199 burn facilities that are listed in the American Burn Association's Burn Care Resources in North America 1989-1990. The mailings were randomized between physicians(More)
Acoustic speech patterns of five maxillofacial surgery patients were examined before and after prosthodontic reconstruction to determine the effectiveness of a maxillary prosthesis for eliminating (or reducing) nasal resonances. Vowel formant frequencies were measured for /i/ (as in seep) and /u/ (as in in soup). Within-subject, across test-session(More)
During endochondral bone formation, as occurs in fracture healing, chondrocytes are one of the first cells to see an implant surface. We tested the hypothesis that chemical composition and surface roughness affect chondrocyte differentiation, matrix synthesis, and local factor production and that the nature of the response is dependent on the state of(More)
Recently, several of our patients have raised questions concerning the safety of blood transfusions and especially the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus infection. We have noticed a growing reluctance of patients to receive blood transfusions. This prompted us to review the use of blood in our burn unit for 530 patients who were admitted from(More)
