PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to investigate the relation between magnetic resonance (MR) evidence of joint effusion and concentrations of proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-6, in washed-out synovial fluid samples obtained from patients with mandibular condyle fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-five joints in 23(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate fresh blood imaging (FBI), a magnetic resonance imaging technique that does not use contrast, for identifying hemangiomas and feeding arteries in the oral and maxillofacial regions. STUDY DESIGN For 16 patients with hemangiomas, FBI visualizations of hemangiomas and feeding arteries in the oral and maxillofacial regions were(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the 3-dimensional images of thinner main peripheral vessels in oral and maxillofacial regions made without contrast medium by using a new technique, fresh blood imaging (FBI). A second objective was to discern arteries from veins by using the combination of FBI with the subtraction technique. STUDY DESIGN(More)
The intraperitoneal (ip) administration of doxorubicin (DOX) is considered to be an important approach for the treatment of peritoneal tumors, because the prognosis of peritoneal cancer is generally poor due to its refractoriness to conventional chemotherapy. In the present study, we examined the disposition behavior of DOX after ip administration in rats(More)
The present study evaluated the use of this self-activated shape memory alloy (SMA) device, with a focus on its effects in the region under the periosteum. Twelve Japanese white rabbits were used in this study. The device was inserted under the periosteum at the forehead. In the experimental group, the device was pushed, bent, and attached to the bone(More)
UNLABELLED This study aimed to improve bone regeneration using a timed-release system for periosteal expansion osteogenesis (TIME-PEO) using a shape memory alloy (SMA) mesh device and absorbable thread in a rabbit model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve rabbits were used in this study. The device was inserted under the periosteum at the forehead, then pushed,(More)
BACKGROUND In conventional bone grafting technique, decortication procedure enhances the healing process and bone regeneration to reach the grafted site more readily. PURPOSE This study evaluates to improve periosteal expansion osteogenesis (PEO) using a shape memory alloy mesh (SMA) device with decortication in a rabbit model. MATERIALS AND METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUND Accidental displacement of a dental implant into the maxillary sinus is an infrequent although not uncommon complication encountered in dental clinical practice, with the main cause thought to be inadequate bone height in the posterior maxilla. We report a case of migration of a dental implant into the maxillary sinus, and discuss the benefits of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to present the results of patients followed for at least 3 years who underwent horizontal distraction osteogenesis DO and a final implant prosthesis. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 13 sites in 12 patients (three men, nine women; mean age 45.4 years, range 21-63 years) who presented with severe horizontal(More)
OBJECTIVE Endoscope-assisted transoral open reduction and internal fixation (EAORIF) for mandibular condyle fractures has recently become popular because it is minimally invasive, provides excellent visibility without a large incision, and reduces surgical scarring and the risk of facial nerve injury. This report describes a retrospective clinical study(More)
