RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To establish the normal criterion of ascending aortic diameter (AAOD) measured by 64 multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and electron beam computed tomography (EBT) based on gender and age. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 1442 consecutive subjects who were referred for evaluation of possible coronary artery disease underwent(More)
Gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) is a pathophysiological fluid that flows into the oral cavity. Human GCF was collected using sterile glass microcapillary tubes from inflamed periodontal sites in patients who had a history of periodontal disease and were in the maintenance phase of treatment. Samples from individual sites were analyzed using MS techniques(More)
In the development of new FPGA architectures, a designer must balance speed, density and routing flexibility. In this paper, we discuss a new FPGA architecture based on a patented [1], novel, segmented routing fabric that is targeted to high performance and predictability but does not sacrifice routability or area efficiency. Current segmented architectures(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Gingival crevicular fluid has been suggested as a possible source of biomarkers for periodontal disease progression. This paper describes a technique for the analysis of gingival crevicular fluid from individual sites using mass spectrometry. It explores the novel use of mass spectrometry to examine the relationship between the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the proteome composition of gingival crevicular fluid obtained from healthy periodontium, gingivitis and chronic periodontitis affected sites. BACKGROUND Owing to its site-specific nature, gingival crevicular fluid is ideal for studying biological processes that occur during periodontal health and disease(More)
BACKGROUND There are well-established associations between periodontitis and diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease (CVD). The literature suggests a reciprocal relationship between periodontitis and diabetes. This pilot study aimed to measure in individuals with moderate to severe periodontitis their diabetes and CVD risks. METHODS Participants with(More)
This article will look at the role of minimum intervention dentistry in the management of periodontal disease. It will discuss the role of appropriate assessment, treatment and risk factors/indicators. In addition, the role of the patient and early intervention in the continuing care of dental implants will be discussed as well as the management of(More)
AIM This study aimed to determine the degree of discrepancy between clinical measurement of furcation involvement (FI) and cone beam computed tomography image analysis of multirooted teeth. METHODS FI measurements obtained from clinical records were compared to CBCT images of the same teeth to determine the degree of discrepancy between CBCT FI grading(More)
