Double-layer superimposed biopsies were used for sampling sound labial enamel of upper permanent central incisor teeth of 189 children (mean age 8.4 years, SD = 0.36), comprising five groups, representing life-long exposure to contrasting concentrations of F in the water (range less than or equal to 0.12 ppm to 2.8 ppm) and to supplements of 200 or 350 mg(More)
Individual samples of urine, fingernails, head-hair, saliva, plaque and enamel were collected from three groups of Hungarian children, aged 14 years, who were exposed to contrasting water fluoride levels (less than or equal to 0.11 ppm; 0.5-1.1 ppm; 1.6-3.1 ppm). The mean fluoride concentration of the samples increased consistently and significantly, but(More)
Selected interactions were examined between F, Al, Ca and Mg intakes and their manifestations in dental health parameters and biological samples relating to Hungarian children. The prevalence (DMFT, DMFS) and severity (SR) of caries were inversely related to the F concentration of household water and to the amount of F ingested from foods, beverages and tap(More)
BACKGROUND There are conflicting views on the accuracy of computed tomography (CT) findings in patients with bowel and mesenteric injuries (BMIs) following blunt abdominal trauma. The aim of the present study was to assess the accuracy of the CT report during a trauma call. METHODS Ninety-eight patients underwent preoperative abdominal spiral CT and(More)
Water fluoridation is the preferred method of caries prevention. It should be promoted wherever technically feasible, whereas fluoridation of other vehicles, such as salt, milk, and sugar, should be considered (18) where no reticulated water supplies exist, as in many developing communities where caries prevalence is increasing sharply (7). Fluoride(More)
Inverse associations were demonstrated between DMFT and total calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, strontium, potassium, and fluoride concentrations in individual plaques. Lithium, strontium, fluoride, and zinc contents were inversely related to plaque mass. Consistent interdependence patterns between elements indicate the operation of a mineral level regulating(More)
The F content of foods and beverages comprising a substantial proportion of the Hungarian diet has been determined. Vegetables and fruits grown in three areas where the mean F content of water was 0.09 mg/l, 0.81 mg/l and 1.91 mg/l did not reflect these differences. In contrast, the F content of cooking water has made demonstrable contribution to the F(More)
Transient global amnesia (TGA) is an uncommon syndrome of recent memory deficit and inability to learn new data, usually resolving within 24 h. Two cases following use of non-ionic contrast media in cerebral angiography are described. The neuroanatomy of memory is reviewed. Possible aetiologies of TGA in relation to cerebral angiography include ischaemia(More)
