Results of various modalities of periodontal therapy were studied in 90 subjects (mean age 45 years) with moderate to severe periodontitis. Initial measurements of pocket depth and clinical attachment levels were compared with measurements obtained after the initial hygienic phase of the treatment and measurements of the same areas 1 and 2 years after four(More)
The purpose of the present study was to assess in a clinical trial over 5 years the results following 4 different modalities of periodontal therapy (pocket elimination or reduction surgery, modified Widman flap surgery, subgingival curettage, and scaling and rool planing). 90 patients were treated. The treatment methods were applied on a random basis to(More)
Patterns of walking and concomitant pain behavior were compared in a group of chronic low back patients (n = 18) and normal controls (n = 18). Subjects were asked to walk a 5 m course. A transducer placed in the subjects' shoes produced a force proportional signal that permitted measurement of walking parameters. Subjects were videotaped in order to record(More)
Longitudinal studies have reported the effect of various modalities of periodontal surgery on pocket depth and attachment levels related to pretreatment measurements. However, possible changes in these measurements as a result of scaling, oral hygiene improvements and occlusal adjustment during the hygienic phase were not considered. The purpose of the(More)
Intraoral radiographs are widely used in periodontal diagnosis and research. However, accurate radiographic interpretation is only possible with high quality images. Some of the technical and geometric variables to consider have been presented. Early periodontal lesions are not detected in radiographs. The amount of periodontal destruction in more advanced(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare tooth mobility at different time periods during periodontal treatment and to relate changes in mobility to each method of treatment. Ninety-three patients (2421 teeth) with moderate to severe periodontitis were scored: (1) at initial examination, (2) 1 month following scaling, root planing, instruction in oral(More)
Burst suppression (BS) is an electroencephalographic state associated with a profound inactivation of the brain. BS and pathological discontinuous electroencephalography (EEG) are often observed in term-age infants with neurological injury and can be indicative of a poor outcome and lifelong disability. Little is known about the neurophysiological(More)
