For past several years, precious alloys have been gradually replaced by non-precious ones in the dental casting field because of the rising price of dental alloys. In Japan during the past ten years, nickel-chromium alloys have been used extensively for crown or bridge and porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations instead of gold or silver alloys. This tendency(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical application possibility of pure titanium konus telescope crowns fabricated using a CAD/CAM system. For the CAD/CAM system, Dental Cadim (Advance Co.) was used. For the material, exclusive pure titanium block for this system was used in this experiment. Two types of experimental dies with different(More)
Due to its ease of use in connecting metal frames, laser welding is now applied in dentistry. However, to achieve precise laser welding, several problems remain to be resolved. One such problem is the influence of irradiation conditions on the deformation of titanium frameworks during laser welding, which this study sought to investigate. Board-shaped pure(More)
An increase in systolic blood pressure (SBP) after hemodialysis (intradialytic-HTN) is associated with adverse outcomes in patients on regular hemodialysis. However, the hemodynamic and Doppler echocardiographic characteristics of intradialytic-HTN and its impact on clinical outcomes are unclear. A retrospective analysis of 84 patients (45 men, 70±9 years)(More)
BACKGROUND A thiazide diuretic used in combination with benazepril is superior to amlodipine plus benazepril in reducing albuminuria in hypertensive patients with diabetes. However, calcium channel blockers have diverse characteristics. Thus, we investigated whether combining an angiotensin receptor blocker with either azelnidipine or a thiazide diuretic(More)
Rhinomanometry is well established as a useful clinical method for objective assessment of nasal patency, although several expressions of nasal patency have been reported and universal standardization has not been achieved. In this communication, nasal resistances were calculated from the equation R = ΔP/V (R; resistance; ΔP; transnasal differential(More)
We report a case of calcified amorphous tumor (CAT) of the heart in a 60-year-old Japanese man on hemodialysis. Because the masses in the mitral annulus developed during two-year echocardiographic follow-up, he underwent surgical resection with mitral valve replacement. Histological examination showed that the tumor contained multiple calcified nodules,(More)
