The present case report provides histologic findings on four titanium plasma-sprayed screw implants after 12 years of incorporation and functional load in a 95-year-old patient. At the time of implant placement, the four implants were immediately connected with a bar and functionally loaded with a bar-supported overdenture. The histologic analysis(More)
In patients with severe head injury, midazolam is a convenient agent for sedation during mechanical ventilation, although its sedative effect can be prolonged. We investigated the effects of acute midazolam reversal by RO 15-1788 (RO), a benzodiazepine antagonist, on intracranial pressure (ICP), cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and on recovery in 18(More)
A plasma-coated titanium screw was specially constructed to receive a bar. Since the clinical results were good, we felt justified in presenting our preliminary findings. Given the fact that this implant is relatively new (2 years), our method seems promising because the bar prosthesis can be applied immediately with the standardized instrumentarium,(More)
Young patients often require fixed bridgework or orthodontic therapy in cases of traumatic tooth loss or congenitally missing teeth. Dental implants represent an alternative to the more conventional treatment methods. We report positive experience over a seven-year period with 42 titanium Ha-Ti implants in 34 patients aged 9 to 18 years. Fourteen implants(More)
