OBJECTIVE: The present study demonstrated the antifungal potential of the chemically characterized essential oil (EO) of Laurus nobilis L. (bay laurel) against Candida spp. biofilm adhesion and formation, and further established its mode of action on C. albicans. METHODS: L. nobilis EO was obtained and tested for its minimum inhibitory and fungicidal concentrations (MIC/MFC) against Candida spp., as well as for interaction with cell wall biosynthesis and membrane ionic permeability...

BACKGROUND: Limitations of antifungal agents used in the treatment of oral candidiasis, as the development of resistant strains, are known by the scientific community. In this context, the aim of this study was to evaluate the antifungal activity of thymol against Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis and Candida krusei strains and to determine its mode of action and synergistic effect when combined with the synthetic antifungal nystatin. METHODS: The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined using a microdilution technique, and the minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) was determined via subculture sowing...

INTRODUCTION: Redo orchiopexy involves a hazardous dissection inside the inguinal canal (IC) where scar tissue encircles the testicular vessels (TesV), vas deferens (VD), and the testis. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to describe and evaluate a combined preperitoneal and inguinal approach (CPI) through a single cutaneous incision and accomplish this task as safely as possible, at the same time permitting additional maneuvers for cord lengthening. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We prospectively studied eight patients aged from 2...

In view of the limitations of antifungal agents used in the treatment of oral candidiasis and the wide variety of natural products that have been studied as treatment of this disease, this systematic literature review proposed to evaluate whether scientific evidence attesting to the efficacy of natural products in the treatment of this disease exists. A systematic search in PubMed, MEDLINE, SciELO, Lilacs, and Cochrane Library databases was accomplished using the associations among the keywords Candida albicans, phytotherapy, biological products, denture stomatitis, and oral candidiasis in both English and Portuguese...

INTRODUCTION: Hypertension is highly prevalent in patients with chronic kidney disease and hypervolemia is one of the principal causes. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the influence of the reduction of volemia on blood pressure as well as on echocardiographic parameters in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.

Objectives. This study aimed to investigate the efficacy of a Schinus terebinthifolius (ST) mouthwash in reducing gingival inflammation levels (GI) and biofilm accumulation (BA) in children with gingivitis. Methods. This was a randomized, controlled, triple blind, and phase II clinical trial, with children aged 9-13 years (n = 27) presenting with biofilm-induced gingivitis. The sample was randomized into experimental (0.3125% ST, n = 14) and control (0.12% chlorhexidine/CHX, n = 13) groups. Products were masked as regards color, flavor and aroma...

We compared the buccal infiltration of 4% articaine with 1 : 100,000 or 1 : 200,000 epinephrine without a palatal injection for the extraction of impacted maxillary third molars with chronic pericoronitis. This prospective, double-blind, controlled clinical trial involved 30 patients between the ages of 15 and 46 years who desired extraction of a partially impacted upper third molar with pericoronitis. Group 1 (15 patients) received 4% articaine with 1 : 100,000 epinephrine and group 2 (15 patients) received 4% articaine with 1 : 200,000 epinephrine by buccal infiltration...

The Odontogenic Keratocyst is a developmental odontogenic cyst and deserves special attention because of its peculiar histopathologic features and biologic behavior. It is believed that the Odontogenic Keratocyst arises from the proliferation of remnants of dental lamina. It is usually asymptomatic, and solitary lesion, however, it may be associated with Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma Syndrome. This work aimed to present a case of a very extensive Odontogenic Keratocyst in a 28-year-old woman.

Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) is a rare, locally invasive neoplasm characterized by the presence of amyloid material that can become calcified. It often is found in the posterior region of the mandible. Such tumors in the maxilla and those that invade the maxillary sinus are extremely rare. This article presents the sixth reported clinical case of a CEOT that invaded the maxillary sinus and extended to the interior of the nasal cavity. The tumor had grown toward the sinus roof, but there was no association with an impacted tooth...

Atypical meningiomas exhibit heterogeneous clinical outcomes. It is unclear which atypical meningiomas require aggressive multimodality treatment with surgery and radiation therapy versus surgery alone to prevent recurrence. Detailed molecular-genetic characterization of these neoplasms is necessary to understand their pathogenesis and identify clinically relevant genetic markers. Oligonucleotide array comparative genomic hybridization was used to identify frequent genetic alterations in 47 primary atypical meningiomas resected at Massachusetts General Hospital between August 1987 and September 2006...

INTRODUCTION: Acute renal failure (ARF) remains highly prevalent with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVE: of this study was to compare use of the APACHE II scoring prognosis with that of the ATN-ISS to determine whether the APACHE II could be used for patients with ARF outside the ICU. METHODS: For this purpose, 205 patients with ARF were accompanied in a prospective cohort. Demographic data, preexisting conditions, organ failure and characteristics of ARF were analyzed...

OBJECT: The authors identified clinical features associated with progression and death in atypical meningioma (AM). METHODS: Forty-seven cases of primary AM treated at Massachusetts General Hospital were retrospectively evaluated for clinical features. Associations with progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival were assessed. RESULTS: The estimated median PFS was 56 months (95% CI 35 months-not estimable). The overall 3- and 5-year PFS rates were 65% (95% CI 44-80%) and 48% (95% CI 26-67%), respectively...

AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the vestibular-palatal diffusion of 4% Articaine with epinephrine 1:100,000 and 1:200,000, in impacted maxillary third molar extractions, without palatal injection. MATERIALS AND METHOD: Two hundred teeth were selected from patients age 15 to 46. Patients were divided into 4 groups: 1A, were anesthetized with 4% articaine 1:100,000 and the surgery was initiated 5 minutes following anesthesia. 1B, used 4% articaine 1:100,000 but the surgery was started 10 minutes after anesthesia...

OBJECTIVES: Our aim was to analyze flow-mediated dilation (FMD) time-course in response to forearm occlusion in the clinical setting. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 50 asymptomatic subjects, monitoring software measuring continuous beat-to-beat change in brachial artery diameter was used to determine FMD magnitude in percentage change in peak diameter from baseline (FMD-DeltaD), time to peak diameter after occlusion release (FMD-t(peak)), integrated FMD response calculated as area under dilation curve (FMD-AUC), maximum FMD rate calculated as maximal slope of dilation (FMD-MDR)...

Non-pituitary lesions account for a minority of sellar region abnormalities. We report the unusual occurrence of non-pituitary sellar/suprasellar lesions in a mother and her two daughters. Each of these cases was diagnosed and managed differently, illustrating the relative importance of radiographic imaging, tumor markers and histopathologic examination in the diagnosis and treatment of intracranial disease. The mother had histologically confirmed Rathke's cleft cyst (RCC) with typical radiographic and histologic appearance...

BACKGROUND: The reproducibility of brachial artery flow-mediated vasodilatation (FMD) is limited by the operator dependence of most measurement methods. METHODS: A new automated computerized analysis of brachial artery ultrasound scan providing a continuous evolution of the diameter during acute hyperemia, reactive to short hyperemia of the forearm and hand, was tested in 10 normal volunteers and 26 asymptomatic patients with cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, heavy smoking, history of premature coronary heart disease and the metabolic syndrome...
