BACKGROUND The psychosocial adaptation of patients who had undergone a resection of the maxilla for cancer of the maxillary antrum and/or hard palate with the placement of an obturator prosthesis to restore speech and eating function was studied. METHODS Forty-seven patients were interviewed who had a maxillectomy with an obturator prosthesis at Memorial(More)
Two patients are described, each of whom developed multiple eruptive lesions on sun-exposed areas within days after starting benoxaprofen therapy. The lesions were 2- to 5-mm papules suggestive of syringomas, and microscopically showed squamous metaplasia of eccrine ducts and focal necrosis of eccrine keratinocytes as well as prominent eccrine hyperplasia.(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM There is a need for a quick, objective, quantitative sensory test of the mandibular inferior alveolar nerve to assess sensory dysfunction due to trauma, infection, or disease. PURPOSE This study evaluated the reliability and reproducibility of a commercially available electrodiagnostic quantitative sensory nerve conduction threshold(More)
Alcohol commits people to personally important goals even if expectations of reaching the goals are low. To illuminate this effect, we used alcohol myopia theory, stating that alcohol intoxicated people disproportionally attend to the most salient aspects of a situation and ignore peripheral aspects. When low expectations of reaching an important goal were(More)
Positioning of the ocular component within an orbital prosthesis must simulate conversational gaze. Using osseointegrated implants and an associated superstructure, a fixed reference point can be established for positioning an ocular prosthesis. This method can simplify the laboratory procedure and obviate the need for ocular component repositioning in(More)
This study observed the effect of various toothpastes on a hybrid composite resin to determine the difference in surface roughness as measured by a profilometer. Slurries (100 gm dentifrice/100 gm H2O) of eight toothpastes were tested by brushing composite resin samples 20,000 times and recording changes in surface smoothness with a profile meter. The(More)
