We present four new cases of verruciform xanthoma (VX) in the oral mucosa and review the literature. Clinical, histological, and immunohistochemical features of four new cases of VX were analysed together with cases found in a review of the literature. Expression of CD-68 was studied by immunohistochemistry. Only 162 cases were reported in the oral mucosa.(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between changes in microporosity and the osseointegration and the osseoconductivity of hydroxyapatite (HAp). HAp cylinders were manufactured by a combination of uniaxial powder pressing and different sintering conditions, with different percentages of microporosity: HAp-I with 3.96+/-0.75%(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of root trunk concavities on guided tissue regeneration. METHODS The second, third, and fourth mandibular bicuspids of 4 healthy mongrel dogs were used. Full flaps were elevated and furcation lesions (5 mm in height and 2 mm in depth) were surgically created. One mm deep concavities were(More)
Two newborn males, two adult males 9 and 72 months old, one newborn female and two adult females of 30 and 54 months old pacas were used. Animals were radiographed on lateral recumbency, teeth were extracted and the vestibulolingual and mesiodistal lengths were achieved at the occlusal surface, besides the longitudinal length. The lower incisors presented(More)
The microscopic description of the teeth of pacas (Agouti paca) bred in captivity was developed for providing biological data on one of the largest American wild rodents, as not many references exist in the literature about this species. Two newborn males, two adult males (9 and 72 months old), one newborn female and two adult females (30 and 54 months old)(More)
Archaeological ceramics are manufactured with clay and usually potters added a material named temper that can be a mineral or organic material. Temper modifies the chemical and physical properties of clay and improves its workability. When INAA is used, the analysis reflects total composition, i.e., the elements in the clay as well the ones in the(More)
