PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate available bone quality and quantity after performing sinus augmentation using simvastatin/β-TCP combination versus β-TCP alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included eight sinus lift procedures conducted on six patients. The sinuses were divided into two equal groups. The patients were recalled one, two weeks two, five, nine months post-operatively for post-operative evaluation. Radiographic evaluation involved cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) radiographs taken for every patient one week and nine months post-operatively to evaluate the changes in bone height, while histomorphometric evaluation involved transcortical bone biopsies taken after nine months during the second-stage surgery for implant placement...

Traditional treatment of infectious diseases is based on compounds that aim to kill or inhibit bacterial growth. The bacterial resistance against antibiotics is a serious issue for public health. Today, new therapeutic targets other than the bacterial wall were deciphered. Quorum sensing or bacterial pheromones are molecules called auto-inducer secreted by bacteria to regulate some functions such as antibiotic resistance and biofilms formation. This therapeutic target is well-studied worldwide, nevertheless the scientific data are not updated and only recent researches started to look into its potential as a target to fight against infectious diseases...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to describe the positions of the lamina papyracea (LP) in patients who had nasal polypi, by computed tomography (CT) analysis. METHODS: Paranasal CT scans of patients diagnosed to have nasal polypi were included in the study. CT images were acquired with multiplanar reformates to obtain delicate details in coronal planes for all subjects. Positions of the LP were registered then analyzed in relation to nasal polypi grading. RESULTS: Forty seven subjects (94 nasal sides) were included in the current study...

Surgical site infections (SSIs) following caesarean surgeries are common. The present study aimed to evaluate the frequency of SSIs following caesareans at Jordan University Hospital during the 30 postoperative days and to identify factors associated with increased SSIs risk. Data regarding the occurrence of SSIs were collected both prospectively via follow-up phone calls and retrospectively via reviewing wound culture results and clinical notes. SSI cases were subsequently determined utilizing predefined criteria...

BACKGROUND: The SYMPLICITY HTN-3 trial, which randomized subjects to renal denervation (RDN) or sham control, was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of RDN for the treatment of resistant hypertension. Outcomes were previously reported. This retrospective analysis evaluated reasons for screen failure (SF) for randomization in the trial. METHODS: SYMPLICITY HTN-3 enrolled subjects with office systolic blood pressure (SBP) ≥160 mmHg on stable and maximal doses of ≥3 antihypertensive medication classes...

AIM: To determine the association of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) polymorphisms with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred thirty-five nAMD patients and 135 controls were recruited to determine the association of the -460 C/T, the -2549 I/D, and the +405 G/C polymorphisms with the VEGF gene. Genotyping was conducted using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) approach, and association analyses were conducted using chi-square analysis and logistic regression analysis...

The aim of this study was to compare the postoperative results of the patients who were treated with Bakri balloon tamponade or hysterectomy for placenta accreta and increta. Patients who were diagnosed with placenta accreta or increta preoperatively and intraoperatively and treated with Bakri balloon tamponade (Group 1) or caesarean hysterectomy (Group 2) were compared in regards to the postoperative results. Among the 36 patients diagnosed with placenta accreta or increta, 19 patients were treated with Bakri balloon tamponade while 17 cases were treated with hysterectomy...

The histidine-rich protein 2 of Plasmodium falciparum is the most common malaria antigen targeted by rapid diagnostic tests for the specific diagnosis of P. falciparum. Recently, pfhrp2 gene deletions have been documented in P. falciparum isolates from South America and some multiple endemic countries in Africa and Asia. Parasites with such gene deletions can produce false negative diagnostic results using HRP2-based rapid diagnostic kits. In the present work, the prevalence of P. falciparum parasites lacking pfhrp2, pfhrp3, which produces a second P...

Postpartum hemorrhage is a major cause of maternal death worldwide. Many therapeutic strategies have been developed to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality like oxytocin, prostaglandin, and uterine balloons. A new member of the therapeutic arsenal has recently emerged, the chitosan (Celox(®)), used since several years by military doctors to stop bleeding of combat wounds. In 2012, a first study was reported with the successful use of chitosan-coated gauze to treat severe postpartum hemorrhage. We report here four cases of the use of chitosan to treat life-threatening obstetric bleeding...

The current study aimed at examining surface and chemical composition changes of retrieved mini-implants after different periods of service as aids of anchorage for orthodontic patients. This study examined 72 retrieved orthodontic self-tapping and self-drilling mini-implants, 1.7 mm in diameter and 8 mm in length (OrthoEasy system, Forestadent, Pforzheim, Germany) from 36 adult orthodontic patients (18 men and 18 women, mean age = 23 years). The retrieved mini-implants were divided into 3 groups according to service period: 3-6 months (3M-6M) group, 6-12 months (6M-12M) group, and 12-24 months (12M-24M) group, with 24 mini-implants in each group...

BACKGROUND: Modified Mini-Mental State Examination (3MS) is an instrument administered by trained personnel to examine levels of participants' cognitive function. However, the association between changes in scores over time and the risk of death (mortality) is not known. The aims of this study are to examine the association between 3MS scores and mortality via cognitive impairment among older women and to determine individuals' risk of changes in scores to better predict their survival and mortality rates...

The biofuels are receiving considerable attention as a substitute for petro diesel. For microalgae, the cell density or biomass and lipid contents are key components for biodiesel production. This study was conducted to develop favorable culture conditions for Dunaliella salina to maximize its biomass and lipid accumulation. The effect of salinity (0.5 to 2.5 M NaCl) on the cell population, biochemical composition, and lipid output of Dunaliella salina was examined under a controlled environment for 21 days...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infections are common, especially in developing countries. Nevertheless, up to 60% of surgical site infections can be prevented with appropriate perioperative care, which includes among other measures using suitable surgical antimicrobial prophylaxis (SAP). METHODS: After a short interview with patients and retrospective review of medical charts, compliance with 6 SAP parameters was assessed for appropriateness; those parameters are indication, choice, dose, time of administration, intraoperative redosing interval, and duration of prophylaxis in 1,173 operations...

The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of the Bakri balloon in the management of PPH. This was a retrospective review of 49 patients, who had Bakri balloon inserted for PPH in KK Hospital between April 2013 and December 2015. The main outcome measure was achievement of haemostasis by Bakri balloon tamponade (BBT). Our success rate was 81.6%. Out of the nine failures (18.0%), five (55.6%) had subtotal hysterectomies and four (44.4%) had total hysterectomies. The causes of PPH in these nine women were unsuspected or foci of placenta accreta (55...
