Analysis of the transmural distribution or nonradial components of myocardial motion has previously been possible only with use of invasive techniques such as implantation of radiopaque markers. Magnetic tagging of the heart wall in conjunction with magnetic resonance imaging allows noninvasive regional analysis of within-wall motion, including its(More)
The fluorogenic probe dihydroethidium (DHE) is widely used for detecting intracellular superoxide. DHE oxidation by superoxide generates specifically the compound 2-hydroxyethidium (2-E+OH), so that 2-E+OH detection confers specificity to superoxide assessment among many other reactive oxygen species. However, DHE oxidation in biological systems leads to(More)
INTRODUCTION The saliva constitutes essential condition for the individual's health. AIM Identify the relation of the salivary flow and saliva pH with medicine use and oral discomfort in elderly.

INTRODUCTION Lateral cephalometric radiographs are traditionally required for orthodontic treatment, yet rarely used to assess asymmetries. OBJECTIVE The objective of the present study was to use lateral cephalometric radiographs to identify existing skeletal and dentoalveolar morphological alterations in Class II subdivision and to compare them with the(More)
The aim of the present retrospective study was to evaluate the influence of age and gender on upper and lower airway width and upper lip length. In this study, 390 lateral cephalograms were divided into 13 age groups (ranging from 6 to 18 years) and were analyzed. The intergroup differences were analyzed using a MANOVA (Multivariate Analysis of the(More)
