Jet irrigation is an accepted method for removal of cerumen from the external auditory canal. Even at a submaximal power setting, oral jet irrigators can generate enough force to rupture the tympanic membrane. Parameters for safe use of these irrigators have never been established. Three cases are reported in which, in addition to tympanic membrane rupture,(More)
The object of this study was to assess the value of mucosal petechiometry as a useful method of measuring the haemostatic defect induced by aspirin. The template bleeding time was done for comparison. The results indicated that mucosal petechiometry did not measure the haemostatic defect induced by aspirin and that aspirin-induced alterations in platelet(More)
A prospective study was set up to evaluate a one-visit apicectomy technique. Calcium hydroxide cement was used as the root canal filling material. The calcium hydroxide cement set rapidly and clearly revealed the position, size and outline form of the root canals at the level of resection. This facilitated preparation of the apical cavities to a depth of 3(More)
Two cases of oral candidiasis are described which failed to respond to nystatin therapy when used in combination with triamcinolone acetonide. The isolates of C. albicans obtained from the patients after treatment showed high in vitro resistance to nystatin when tested in combination with triamcinolone acetonide. Triamcinolone acetonide was detected in the(More)
