Neuromuscular choristoma is a rare benign tumor of the peripheral nerves. To the best of our knowledge, 21 cases have been reported to date. We describe here a 20-day-old female infant who presented with a buttock mass (4.5×4.1×3.2 cm on MRI) arising from the left sciatic nerve. Microscopically, it was characterized by an intimately disorganized mixture of(More)
Desmoplastic fibroma of the jaws is a rare and locally aggressive tumor that has a high rate of recurrence. The cellularity, extent of the tumor, and completeness of the local excision may be factors in its tendency to recur. We reviewed the literature in an attempt to determine if there was any correlation between the histologic features of a desmoplastic(More)
A lactose-free (LF) chocolate dairy drink and one containing 4.5% lactose (LC) were administered randomly in 240- and 480-ml volumes on 4 consecutive mornings under double-blind conditions to 110 healthy teenagers (14 to 19 years old) of differing ethnic backgrounds. Capillary blood glucose analysis after 50 g of oral lactose identified 67 of them as(More)
Using an improved double-blind test procedure, the relationship between lactose malabsorption and lactose intolerance was investigated in 87 healthy teenagers (14--19 years old) of differing ethnic backgrounds. Capillary blood glucose analysis after an oral dose of 50 g of lactose identified 45 lactose malabsorbers. A lactose-free (LF) chocolate dairy drink(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the response of the articular surfaces of the normal goat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) to intra-articular injections of betamethasone suspension. METHODS Thirty female goats were divided into four experimental groups of seven each and one control group of two animals. The design resulted in 24 joints receiving from one to(More)
Particulate hydroxyapatite (HA) was used in the augmentation of 18 mandibular and four maxillary ridges in 21 patients whose cases were followed postoperatively for 5 to 7 years. Patients were evaluated clinically, radiographically, and through questionnaires. Prosthodontic assessment of retention and stability of dentures showed improvement 5 years(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the effect of radiation on hydroxylapatite (HA) implanted subperiosteally for alveolar ridge augmentation in dogs. All bicuspids and molars were extracted from 16 dogs. After 6 weeks, nonporous HA granules were implanted subperiosteally on the alveolar ridge. Following 4 months of healing, 12 dogs(More)
A technique for re-establishing continuity of the mandibular bone using an intramandibular sliding myo-osseous graft is presented. The usefulness and the simplicity of this modified pedicled bone graft is shown and additional experience with the technique is now justified to give a full assessment of the procedure.
