PURPOSE The purpose of this clinical feasibility study was to evaluate the applicability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the assessment of apical periodontitis in direct comparison with cone beam CT (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS 19 consecutive patients (average age 43 ± 13 years) with 34 lesions in total (13 molars, 14 premolars and 7 front teeth)(More)
The market-release of a modified ‘mandible external fixator’ appliance prompted us to reconsider the issues of pin fixation. The first product line of the ‘mandible external fixator set—Phase1’ (Synthes Maxillofacial®, Paoli, USA) contains the three classical basic components: percutaneous pins, clamps, and pre-bent connecting rods. The innovative features(More)
BACKGROUND In progressive IgA nephropathy (IgAN), cyclophosphamide or steroids have been used to reduce the loss of renal function, but disease progression may occur after the end of treatment. The value of mycophenolic acid (MPA) maintenance therapy following initial immunosuppression in progressive IgAN is largely unknown. METHODS In a prospective(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this case series was to compare magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the representation of periapical osteolyses. Based on the histological findings, the potential of MRI for further lesion characterisation was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen patients (average age: 41 ± 27 years)(More)
