OBJECTIVE To study the effect of fluoride prophylactic agents on the loading and unloading mechanical properties and surface quality of beta titanium and stainless steel orthodontic wires. MATERIALS AND METHODS Rectangular beta titanium and stainless steel wires were immersed in either an acidulated fluoride agent, a neutral fluoride agent, or distilled(More)
The use of lasers in microsurgery is now an accepted procedure. As we learn more about the absorption properties of biologic tissue, we can use different electromagnetic wave lengths to accomplish surgical alteration of these tissues. The electromagnetic wave length of the Argon laser is compatible for surgical alteration of the soft tissue and bone of the(More)
The objective of this research was to observe the effect of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) combined with modified atmosphere packaging on the quality of fresh chicken breasts under refrigerated storage for 15 days. Each chicken breast was inoculated with a 4-log CFU/ml culture of Salmonella Typhimurium (nalidixic acid-resistant strain) and placed into a barrier(More)
Studying the flow dynamics of intracranial aneurysms and the associated pulsatility of the aneurysm wall may help to risk-stratify unruptured aneurysms. Currently, in-vivo methods that visualize aneurysm wall movement at high temporal resolution are not yet fully established. We describe a patient with an intracavernous aneurysm in whom the area of(More)
