Biofilm accumulation on implant surfaces is one of the most important factors for early and late implant failure. Because of the related clinical implications, the aim of this in vitro study was to compare the bacterial cell attachment of a four-species oral biofilm on titanium discs of purity grade 2 and 4, with machined surfaces and(More)
Clinical manifestations and surgical results are analyzed in a retrospective study of 16 patients with a Zenker's diverticulum. Pharyngoesophageal diverticulum are an uncommon anomaly, producing cervical dysphagia and recurrent airway infections. Treatment should be surgical, as earliest as possible. Morbidity is very low and mortality very rare.
BACKGROUND The aim of this animal study is to analyze bone remodeling around platform-switching (PS) implants with and without a machined (MACH) collar placed at different levels in relation to the crestal bone in a canine model. METHODS All mandibular premolars and first molars were extracted in five dogs. After 6 months, grit-blasted acid-etched (GBAE)(More)
BACKGROUND The use of preoperative imaging in patients with hyperparathyroidism remains controversial. The aim of this study is to assess the usefulness of the double-phase 99mTc-sestamibi scintigraphy in the diagnosis of abnormal parathyroid glands in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. PATIENTS AND METHODS We studied 60 patients presenting with(More)
