The susceptibility of selected oral bacteria, including suspected periodontopathogens, to a commonly employed Chinese herbal medicine Huang-chin (HC, Scutellaria baicalensis) was tested in vitro. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentrations (MBC) were determined. HC was also compared with tetracycline, alexidine, and(More)
Color Doppler twinkling artifact is known as a rapidly changing mixture of red and blue behind certain strongly reflecting structures. This artifact has been described behind calcifications in various tissues. We describe a case of twinkling artifact related to chronic pancreatitis with parenchymal calcification.
The effects of electrosurgery, retraction cord, and the rotary gingival curettage technique were tested clinically and histologically in dogs. Postoperative periods analyzed ranged from 6 hours to 14 days. All methods induced some kind of minor damage. Recession of clinical magnitude was induced only by rotary gingival curettage. Apical migration of the(More)
The facial marginal alveolar bone of dogs was exposed with a full-thickness flap and touched by an activated electrosurgery electrode for periods of 0, 1, 5 and 10 seconds. Microscopic results were evaluated after periods ranging from 0 hours to 28 days. Various electrode exposure times produced similar changes in bone and periodontal ligament. The extent(More)
Entrapment of the burr within calcified lesion is an uncommon, but serious complication during rotational atherectomy and usually needs surgical retrieval. We report a case series of this complication and also review the possible mechanisms, such as kokesi phenomenon or insufficient pecking motion with decreased rotational speed. We also review the(More)
