Polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) obtained from carrageenin-stimulated peritoneal cavities of rats, but not blood PMN, spontaneously produced nitric oxide (NO) when incubated in vitro. Incubation of the cells with the NO synthase inhibitors, L-imino-ethyl-L-ornithine (L-NIO) or N(G)-monomethyl-L-arginine (L-NMMA), inhibited NO production. This inhibition(More)
The fretting corrosion of five materials for implant suprastructures (cast-titanium, machined-titanium, gold alloy, silver-palladium alloy and chromium-nickel alloy), was investigated in vitro, the materials being galvanically coupled to a titanium ball-and-socket-joint with tetrafluoroethylene under mechanical load. Various electrochemical parameters(More)
The aim of this research is the surface hardening of the ball-and-socket joint of dental implants by means of heat treatments in order to obtain titanium nitrides. These nitrides minimize the wear of the titanium used in prosthesis. In this paper the optimum heat treatment, the hardness and the wear resistance are described in relation to the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the inter-observer agreement of three tibial plateau fracture classifications: Schatzker, AO Group, and Hohl. METHODS Nine physicians of different levels of expertise (six Orthopaedic Residents - OR - and three Orthopaedic Attendings - OA) classified 50 tibial plateau fractures. RESULTS There was a low to moderate agreement between(More)
