BACKGROUND There is still controversy about which vasodilator solution is best for storing radial artery (RA) conduits prior to coronary artery bypass grafting. The aim of this pilot study was to investigate how 4 different topical vasodilators applied during RA harvesting affect blood flow with the vessel in situ. MATERIALS AND METHODS The subjects were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the success of zygomatic plate-screw anchorage and to define the key points that help to improve the success of this system. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 74 zygomatic plate-screw anchors were applied to 37 patients from 2 groups receiving orthodontic treatment. The first group consisted of 19 patients, and the zygoma anchors were(More)
We retrospectively evaluated early clinical results of coronary revascularization using none but arterial grafts in patients aged 65 years and older. The cases of 449 consecutive patients who had undergone isolated myocardial revascularization were divided into 2 groups: the arterial conduit group (n=107) received a left internal mammary artery (LIMA) graft(More)
A novel tubular device has been developed for hydrogen sulfide determination in air. Several substrates such as commercial silica gel and alumina TLC plates, silica gel powder, alumina, CaSO(4), CaCO(3), BaSO(4), MgO, chalk, alpha-cellulose and ethyl cellulose were tested as solid substrates. 30-70-mesh silica gel was finally employed in glass tubes of 4.0(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to investigate how brief pretreatments with 4 different vasodilators applied topically at normal body temperature affect blood flow in the internal mammary artery. METHODS One hundred patients who had an internal mammary artery mobilized as a pedicle for coronary artery bypass grafting were randomly assigned to one of 5(More)
UNLABELLED An increasing body of evidence suggests that the use of probiotic bacteria is a promising intervention approach for the treatment of inflammatory diseases with a polymicrobial etiology. P. gingivalis has been noted to have a different way of interacting with the innate immune response of the host compared to other pathogenic bacteria, which is a(More)
