Advantages of this technique are good access and ease of surgery, broad medullary contact at osteotomy sites, and elimination of the need for a bone graft. Close cooperation between speech pathologist and surgeon is essential when(More)
The analgesic effect of meclofenamate sodium at two dose levels (100 mg and 200 mg) was compared with the effects of buffered aspirin (600 mg) and placebo in a double-blind, randomized study of 105 dental outpatients with acute pain following third-molar extraction.

The dermal-fat graft provides a soft, natural-appearing augmentation. In the case reported here a 2-year follow-up shows excellent(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the role of lymph vessel density (LVD) and lymphangiogenesis in seminomatous testicular cancer (STC) by using the lymphatic endothelial cell (LEC) markers LYVE-1 and D2-40. METHODS AND MATERIALS Paraffin embedded tumor specimens from 40 patients with STC were stained by specific D2-40 and Lyve-1 antibodies. LVD was measured in(More)
