A vast variety of alloplastic materials together with autogenous grafts have been used for the correction of contour deformities related to aesthetic and reconstructive purposes. Despite a number of well-tolerated materials, the ideal has not yet been reached, although well-tolerated autogenous grafts have higher rates of resorption and distortion. The(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the importance of the increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) in the mucosa of the appendix.

Gingival overgrowth (GO) is a common side effect of CsA administration; however, the pathogenesis of drug-induced GO is poorly understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of Ki-67,(More)
An experimental study has been performed on 30 New Zealand rabbits to compare autogenous cartilage harvested from the rabbits' auricles, bone graft harvested from the iliac crest of the rabbits, and the commercially available solvent dehydrated human costal cartilage (SDHCC) grafts, each measuring 1 x 1 cm. The grafts are divided into two groups, one group(More)
