The success rate of osseointegrated implants is reported to be above 90%. Despite of the knowledge of the mechanisms of osseointegration, some faults still occur at implants systems. Recent researches assign those faults mainly to patient's prosthetic rehabilitation. The misfit at abutment-implant interface and the missing of a passive adaptation between(More)
The aim of this in vitro study was to use strain gauge (SG) analysis to compare the effects of the implant-abutment joint, the coping, and the location of load on strain distribution in the bone around implants supporting 3-unit fixed partial prostheses. Three external hexagon (EH) implants and 3 internal hexagon (IH) implants were inserted into 2(More)
The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the expression of RANK protein during bone-healing process around machined surface implants. Twenty male Wistar rats, 90 days old, after having had a 2 mm diameter and 6 mm long implant inserted in their right tibias, were evaluated at 7, 14, 21, and 42 days after healing. After obtaining the histological samples,(More)
OBJECTIVES The present in vitro study was designed to compare the differences in the vertical misfit of implant-supported frameworks using three different forces for tightening the bridge locking screws: fastening by hand until first resistance, and using torque drivers with 10 and 20Ncm. METHODS The investigation was conducted based on the results given(More)
A double immunofluorescence method was devised to localize simultaneously urotensin-I (UI) and -II (UII) immunoreactivities in the caudal neurosecretory system of the goby, Gillichthys mirabilis. In a sequential fashion, sections of the posterior spinal cord and urophysis were treated with antiserum to corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) that cross-reacts(More)
Somatostatin-like immunofluorescence occurs in the hypothalamus and neurohypophysis of three euryhaline teleosts: tilapia, killifish, and mudsucker. This immunofluorescence was eliminated by incubating the primary antibody with excess somatostatin or somatostatin-28 but not with urotensin II, a partial analogue of somatostatin. In all three fishes, the(More)
