Electrical stimulation (ES) of lumbosacral nerve roots using a needle electrode inserted to the laminar level at the midline of Th12-L1 or L1-2 intervertebral interspace, was compared with magnetic stimulation using a 9-cm diameter coil (MCS) at the L3-4 or L4-5 spine levels, Compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) were superficially recorded from(More)
BACKGROUND Gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) biomarkers associated with bone resorption may be useful to determine periodontal disease status and response to therapy. The pyridinoline cross-linked carboxy-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (ICTP), a bone-specific degradation product, and interleukin 1-beta (IL-1), a potent bone-resorptive cytokine, have(More)
Needle electrical stimulation of the lumbosacral roots at the laminar level of the Th12-L1 or L1-2 intervertebral spaces were performed in 24 normal subjects and 58 patients with various kinds of lumbar radiculopathy (unilateral L4, L5 and S1 herniated nucleus pulposus and lumber stenosis). The root stimulation method was compared with conventional needle(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this consecutive case series was to analyze the success rate of endosseous implants placed into deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) maxillary and mandibular grafted extraction sites during a 48-month period. METHODS During a 48-month period, 69 consecutive patients presented with 109 nonrestorable teeth. The teeth were(More)
