UNLABELLED Fish oil has been used effectively in the treatment of cardiovascular disease via triglyceride reduction and inflammation modulation. This study aimed to assess the effects of fish oil on patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) associated with hyperlipidemia. Eighty participants with NAFLD associated with hyperlipidemia were(More)
OBJECTIVE Patients with OSAS (obstructive sleep apnea syndrome) demonstrate decreased upper airway dimension and craniofacial skeletal abnormalities. The study was performed to analyze whether upper airway dimensions differed among Chinese nonsnoring children of different sagittal and vertical skeletal facial morphologies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Lateral(More)
OBJECTIVE It intended to investigate different craniofacial types of anterior open bite. METHODS 116 patients with anterior open bite were selected randomly. The craniofacial morphology and airway structures were measured and analyzed with multivariate analyses. RESULTS 4 factors (mandible rotation factor, facial height factor, dental and skeletal(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of the self-drilling miniscrew implant for maximum anchorage cases. METHODS The study comprised 5 patients whose ages ranged from 14 to 31 years. All patients presented with. Class II skeletal pattern, maxillary protrusion or bimaxillary protrusion. Maximum molar anchorage and first(More)
OBJECTIVE The children obstructive sleep apnea and hyponea syndromes has become a global research hot spot, but the research of craniofacial features in obstructive sleep apnea and hyponea syndromes (OSAHS) children was scarce. To evaluate the craniofacial features of obstructive sleep apnea and hyponea syndromes children. METHODS The subjects involved in(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the difference in the biological response of osteoblasts when stretched and compressed. A cellular cyclic tension and compression apparatus (CCTCA) was designed to stretch and compress cells under the same conditions. After stretching or compressing MC3T3-E1 with continuously increased strain for 5 hours, cellular(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate three-dimensional changes of maxilla after rapid maxillary expansion (RME). METHODS Ten patients treated with RME were included in the study. Spiral CT images were used to evaluate three-dimensional changes of the maxilla. A three-dimensional reference frame was set up. RESULTS (1) ANS, PNS' and PNS displaced downward and(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the changes of blood flow volume in mental artery of dog before and after osteocompression. METHODS 16 adult dogs were selected and the osteocompressors were fixed on the right buccal side of the mandible. The osteocompressor was used to compress the mandible 1.0 mm per 3 days for totally 15 days. On the 1st, 15th, 45th and 90th day(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain the data about morphology of upper airway and surrounding tissues of non-snoring males from three age groups. METHODS Through questionnaires and clinic examinations, 83 non-snoring males (20-60 years) were selected from 453 volunteers and involved in the following research. There were 30 volunteers aged from 22 to 29 (mean 23.60+/-2.58(More)
