A total of 1,128 sites in 15 periodontal maintenance patients were examined twice, 7 to 10 days apart, to evaluate reproducibility of periodontal probing by a conventional manual and an automated force-controlled electronic probe. Probing depths (PD) and relative attachment levels (AL) were recorded to the nearest 0.5 mm with both instruments. At each(More)
Important in the pathogenesis of asthma is the secretion of interleukin (IL)-5 by allergen-specific TH2 cells, which augments eosinophil functions, as well as subsequent synthesis of cysteinyl leukotrienes (CysLTs). Montelukast is an inhibitor of CysLT and also has been shown to decrease eosinophil counts in peripheral blood and sputum of patients with(More)
This study evaluated intra- and inter-examiner reproducibility for a conventional manual probe versus a computer-interfaced force-controlled periodontal probe. 2 examiners recorded probing depths (PD) and relative attachment levels (AL) at 1128 sites in 15 periodontal maintenance patients. Each site was evaluated 2x, 7 to 10 days apart by both examiners.(More)
The study design was a retrospective study in adolescent scar contracture scoliosis caused by back scalding during the infantile period. The objective of the study was to investigate the pathogenesis, clinical manifestation and treatment of adolescent scar contracture scoliosis caused by back scalding during the infantile period. This condition seldom(More)
Albumin excretion rates (AER) of three consecutive days in different urine collection periods were measured in 7 hospitalized microalbuminuric diabetics (Ma DM) and 7 normoalbuminuric diabetics (Na DM). They were divided on the basis of an initial overnight urinary AER below or above 10 micrograms/min. The percentage of variation coefficients (% CV) of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of range size and duration of chronic sinusitis on middle ear function. METHOD Eustachian tube function, tympanogram and air hearing threshold were measured with an acoustic impedance audiometer and pure tone audiometer in 56 patients (112 ears). RESULT Eustachian tube function was disturbed in 48.3% cases, tympanogram was(More)
