BACKGROUND Necrotizing fasciitis is a rapidly spreading, soft-tissue infection involving the subcutaneous tissues. Necrotizing fasciitis originating from a dental-related source is rare. Practitioners should be aware that this infection could occur in patients who are immunocompromised and in patients who are healthy. Practitioners must treat this disease(More)
The practice of office-based oral and maxillofacial surgery is continuously expanding and involves the management of a diverse population in regards to the surgical procedures performed within the office and the age and medical health of the patients treated within the office. Comfort, cooperation, and hemodynamic stability are critical to satisfactorily(More)
A growth factor known as Bone Morphogenic Protein has through recombinant technology been made available to dentists as a "bone-less" bone graft. This recombinant human bone morphogenic protein-2 is placed on an absorbable collagen sponge carrier and delivered to a site of bone deficiency. This material will induce new osteoblasts to form from mesenchymal(More)
The effects of dopamine and dobutamine on plasma potassium were investigated in dogs using continuous, multi-channel, intravascular ion-selective potassium electrodes situated in the aorta and abdominal and thoracic inferior vena cavae. Doses of 10 and 30 μg kg-1 min-1 of each drug were used, and the effects on potassium compared with isoprenaline 0.07 and(More)
Calcium phosphate cements have many desirable properties for bone tissue engineering, including osteoconductivity, resorbability, and amenability to rapid prototyping-based methods for scaffold fabrication. In this study, we show that dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD) cements, which are highly resorbable but also inherently weak and brittle, can be(More)
