The aim of this study was to investigate the association of different dental prophylactic modalities and osteoradionecrosis (ORN) and determine the risk of ORN under different timing periods of scaling, with the use chlorhexidine mouth rinse after surgery and with different strategies of fluoride gel application in head and neck cancer (HNC) participants.

Duplex Doppler sonography was performed to differentiate varied degrees of obstructive uropathy by demonstrating the intrarenal arterial impedance in terms of pulsatility index and resistive index. We evaluated 56 kidneys in 28 normal subjects and 53 kidneys in 27 patients with unilateral or bilateral obstructive uropathy. The degrees of renal obstruction(More)
BACKGROUND Little research exists on the dynamic effects of glucocorticoids on bone mineral density (BMD) and microarchitecture of trabecular bones of rats assessed by micro-computed tomography (micro-CT). PURPOSE To investigate time-related changes in the BMD and microarchitecture of trabeculae in rats exposed to glucocorticoid. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the therapeutic potential of sympatholytic agents on premature ejaculation in an animal model, using monitoring of rat seminal vesicle pressure change in response to electrical stimulation of the lesser splanchnic nerve. MATERIALS AND METHODS Male Wistar rats (aged 12-14 weeks) were injected intra-arterially with sympatholytic agents(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a modified plication technique and compare the results with the Nesbit procedure for treating congenital penile curvature. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eleven men with congenital penile curvature were treated by a modified tunica albuginea plication technique. An artificial erection was induced by normal saline injection; in the areas where(More)
This investigation demonstrated a good model to record the pressure change of rat seminal vesicle (SV) in response to electrical stimulation (ES) of lesser splanchnic nerve (LSN) in vivo. LSN was easily identified and isolated grossly. Antegrade catheterization via the SV tail to the main lumen was performed similar to the technique of i.v. catheterization,(More)
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are bone marrow-derived endothelial cells capable of circulating, proliferating, and differentiating into mature endothelial cells. Circulating EPCs can be directly recruited to some extent at sites of injury, and their administration could accelerate repair or endothelialization of the damaged tissue. We investigated the(More)
Both microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration (MESA) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are great advances in assisted reproductive techniques. By using the ICSI technique, frozen sperm from the epididymis can result in successful fertilization. The epididymal sperm retrieved via MESA can be cryopreserved for an in-vitro fertilization (IVF)(More)
PURPOSE We studied the relationship of penile rigidity and intracavernous vascular resistance in potent men during intracavernous pharmacological testing. MATERIALS AND METHODS Enrolled in our study were 19 potent men undergoing intracavernous pharmacological testing for various reasons. Hemodynamic changes in response to the intracavernous injection of(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease and can lead to deformities and severe disabilities, due to irreversible damage of tendons, joints, and bones. A previous study indicated that a DNA repair system was involved in the development of RA. In this study, we investigated the association of four N-methylpurine-DNA glycosylase (MPG) gene(More)
