INTRODUCTION The direct effect of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) on bone resorption has been demonstrated recently. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of FSH inhibitor leuprorelin (LE) on alveolar bone loss resulting from experimental periapical lesions in ovariectomized (OVX) rats. METHODS Twenty-seven female rats were randomly assigned… (More)
A 27-year-old patient with an anomalous mandibular molar was referred for endodontic therapy. Clinical and radiographic examination revealed the connation of a second mandibular molar with a third molar. Challenging endodontic therapy was performed in the unusual connated molars. A 2-year recall showed good treatment result.
This study aimed to investigate whether follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)-induced alveolar bone resorption was mediated by a cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) enzyme related mechanism. Experimental periodontitis was induced in bilateral ovariectomized (OVX) rats, some of which were injected with triptorelin, an FSH inhibitor. After mandibles were collected, we… (More)
