OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the association of dry mouth with oral symptoms and function, such as denture instability, discomfort, soreness in denture-bearing tissue, and dissatisfaction with chewing, tasting, or speaking in removable denture wearers. STUDY DESIGN The subjects were 493 removable denture wearers with a mean age of(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of ageing, occlusal support and TMJ condition and general health status on bite force in older adults. METHODS The study sample consisted of 850 independently-living people over the age of 60 years. Bilateral maximal bite force in the intercuspal position was measured with pressure(More)
A 68-year-old man with right atrial myxoma detected by abdominal echography accidentally is reported. The diagnosis was confirmed by use of echocardiography and MRI. Selective coronary angiography visualized the tumor vessels. The myxoma was removed successfully. The origin of the tumor was the free wall of the right atrium, and its weight was 14 g.
A 57-year-old man with acute dissecting aneurysm of the ascending aorta underwent immediate operation. Preoperative study showed aortic regurgitation and cardiac tamponade. The intimal tear originated just above commissure of right coronary cusp and left coronary cusp. The procedure was a combination of direct closure of the entry and dissecting space and(More)
BACKGROUND The Ross procedure requires the interposition of prosthetic or homograft extracardiac conduits to establish ventricle-pulmonary artery connection (RV-PA). These materials usually require multiple reoperations because of conduit failure. To avoid the re-replacement of currently available conduits, usage of autologous tissue may be preferable to(More)
A 68-year-old woman with mitral valve regurgitation due to ruptured chordae tendineae of posterior leaflet underwent mitral valve repair by replacement of chordae tendineae with EPTFE sutures and Carpentier-Edwards ring techniques. Preoperative study showed massive mitral regurgitation and moderate tricuspid regurgitation with CTR 54% of chest X-ray. The(More)
A 2-year-old boy who had undergone a correction of a type A interruption using a modified Blalock-Park operation, pulmonary artery banding and the division of a patent ductus arteriosus, underwent a Ross operation and closure of ventricular septal defect (VSD). Although a pre-operative echo cardiogram revealed a bicuspid aortic valve, and a Doppler(More)
We report a case of 2-year-old girl with asplenia syndrome who successfully underwent modified Fontan procedure and concomitant repair of supracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC). The preoperative diagnosis included a common atrioventricular canal (type C), a double outlet right ventricle, a common atrium, common atrioventricular(More)
A 5-year-old boy with anatomically corrected malposition of the great arteries (Van Praah's {S, D, L} arrangement type) associated with ventricular septal defect (malalignment conus type) and pulmonary stenosis underwent a biventricular repair. Subpulmonary stenosis was repaired by muscle resection of narrowing muscular subpulmonary conus through the right(More)
