The incidence of intraosseus hemangiomas is very low. The mandible, the zygoma, the maxilla, and the frontal bone are the most frequent areas of localization in the craniomaxillofacial region. Surgery, without preoperative embolization, is always the best treatment for intraosseus hemangiomas of the zygoma. The radical removal of the tumor frequently causes(More)
The frontal sinus is located at the level of the junction between the naso-ethmoido-orbital region, the cranial vault and the skull base and plays a particularly important role in the biomechanics of the centro-facial region. It represents a locus minoris resistentiae placed between the fronto-orbital frame, whose resistance to trauma is good, and the thin(More)
It is certain that oral extractive surgery is a remarkable trigger to avascular osteonecrosis of the jaw in patients treated with pyrophosphate analogous. This acquisition limits the use of endo-oral surgery in those patients, even when they have already developed the lesions. In this study, we present the results obtained in a group of 15 patients deriving(More)
Objectives: To compare compliance with an antihypertensive treatment administered either twice daily or three times daily. The two formulations of the antihypertensive treatment used (nicardipine) “regular tablets” (t.d.) and “slow release tablets” (b.d.) are bioequivalent at the daily dosage used in the study. Study design: Open, controlled, parallel(More)
Plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) concentrations were measured by radioimmunoassay 1 to 12 days after operation in six patients with artificial hearts. The mean levels were significantly higher in artificial heart recipients (58.2 pg · ml−1) than in controls (12.6 pg · ml−1). The mechanism underlying the raised values is not clear, although it is(More)
Myoepithelioma is a rare benign neoplasm of the salivary glands occurring more frequently in the parotids. Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a chronic, T-cell dependent, antibody and complement-mediated autoimmune neuromuscular transmission disorder. Interleukine-6 (IL-6) is an immune protein belonging to the family of the hematopoietins, liberated in response to(More)
Craniofacial traumas are one of the most common clinical events of the 21st century. The possibility of associated injuries of the head and neck may also determine functional and cosmetic problems in these patients. The most frequent pathologic conditions observed are contusions, lacerations, abrasions, avulsions, and the inclusion of foreign bodies. In(More)
An association between vitiligo and autoimmune thyroid disorders had previously been postulated. Thyroid disorders were found in 18.5% of 15,126 patients with vitiligo, on the basis of the anamnestic data. Then, we investigated 255 healthy relatives in whom we tested only T3, T4 and TSH. With the immunological investigation we detected a higher incidence of(More)
OBJECTIVES Cleft lip and/or palate (CLP) is the most common congenital craniofacial abnormality, with a prevalence of 9.92 per 10,000 live births. In treating patients with CLP, oral rehabilitation is definitely a very important phase of the treatment in order to improve the patient's oral health related quality of life (OH-QoL). The aim of this(More)
The antimineralocorticoid effect of a single dose of RU 28318, has been assessed in healthy men with exogenous or endogenous hypermineralocorticism. For exogenous hypermineralocorticism induced by ingestion of 9α-fluorohydrocortisone (9α-FHC) and aldosterone infusion, RU 28318 100 mg (9α-FHC ingestion) or 200 mg (aldosterone infusion) was administered, and(More)
