Demystifying the mesiobuccal root of maxillary first molar using cone-beam computed tomography. - Indian journal of dental research : official publication of Indian Society for Dental Research
Imaging techniques and endodontics are inseparable from each other as the former have always been the cornerstone for successful endodontic diagnosis and treatment.The objective of this study was to detect the presence of extra canals in the mesiobuccal root of the maxillary first molar using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT).In this study, 75 freshly extracted human maxillary first molars were mounted on arches and exposed to CBCT and digital radiography (control). The incidence of additional canals is then evaluated using CBCT and the teeth identified with additional canals were marked and again exposed to RVG.The results were analyzed by three examiners two endodontists and an oral radiologist to eliminate bias. Inter and intra rater agreement was analyzed using the kappa coefficient.Statistical analysis revealed the incidence of extra canals to be at 47.1% with the difference between the readings of the 3 examiners being statistically insignificant.CBCT can be considered an advanced diagnostic tool for primary and secondary endodontic treatments.
Biochemical markers in oral submucous fibrosis: A review and update. - Dental research journal
Oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) is a potentially malignant oral condition effectively linked to the causative habit of chewing areca nut. Since its first description in the 1950s, numerous epidemiological, biochemical, histological, and genetic studies have been reported. While most studies point out to the cause and effect of areca nut, co-additive factors are also implicated in the progression and malignant transformation of this condition. Biochemical investigations have concentrated on outlining such changes in the blood, serum or tissues of these patients and have given insights on the possible pathogenesis of OSMF. This article attempts to compile details of biochemical investigations in OSMF and summarize and infer on the findings.
Correlations between anthropometry and lipid profile in type 2 diabetics. - Indian journal of endocrinology and metabolism
Over a period of time, anthropometric parameters have evolved into reliable indicators for predicting the incidence of diabetes mellitus. A number of studies have shown correlations between anthropometry and lipid profiles in healthy volunteers. This study examined correlations between anthropometry and lipid profile in type 2 diabetics. The limited observations made in this study reveal that anthropometric parameters are not ideal for predicting lipid profile abnormalities in type 2 diabetics.
A preliminary study on normal electrocardiographic parameters of ostriches (Struthio camelus). - Journal of the South African Veterinary Association
Electrocardiograms were taken from 100 normal healthy male and female ostriches which were 1 to 15 months old using a base apex lead. The heart rate of those less than 3 months old ranged from 107 to 250 beats per minute with a mean of 171.47 +/- 9.03 and that of ostriches of more than 3 months old ranged from 43 to 167 with a mean of 90.52 +/- 2.64 beats/minute. The P-waves were positive in all cases except in 1 ostrich which it was isoelectric. The ORS complexes were mainly negative and either monophasic (QS) or biphasic (rS or RS). The T-wave showed more variation than other waves. The durations of P P-R, QRS, Q-T and T-waves of chicks and of those more than 3 months of age (4-15-month-old) were 0.04 +/- 0.00, 0.06 +/- 0.00; 0.14 +/- 0.04, 0.16 +/- 0.00; 0.04 +/- 0.00, 0.06 +/- 0.00; 0.18 +/- 0.00, 0.27 +/- 0.00 and 0.06 +/- 0.00, 0.09 +/- 0.01 s, respectively, and amplitudes of the main direction of P-, QRS and T- waves of 2 groups were 0.29 +/- 0.02, 0.26 +/- 0.01; 1.87 +/- 0.17, 2.21 +/- 0.08; and 0.34 +/- 0.06, 0.37 +/- 0.02 mV, respectively. Ten cases showed cardiac dysrhythmias of which 9 showed sinus arrhythmia and 1 showed premature atrial contractions (PAC). This study showed that the base apex lead can be a suitable monitoring lead for electrocardiographic examination of ostriches.
Hyperglycaemic effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine and dopamine in the freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium malcolmsonii. - Journal of experimental zoology. Part A, Comparative experimental biology
The effects of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT; serotonin) and dopamine (DA) on tissue carbohydrate metabolism and haemolymph glucose levels in the freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium malcolmsonii, were investigated. Injection of 5-HT and DA produced hyperglycaemia in a dose-dependent and time-dependent manner, with DA being more effective than 5-HT. Interestingly, 5-HT and DA induced hyperglycaemia only in intact prawns but not in bilaterally eyestalk-ablated individuals. Total carbohydrate (TCHO) and glycogen levels decreased and phosphorylase activity increased in the hepatopancreas and muscle of intact prawns after being injected with 5-HT or DA. However, bilateral eyestalk ablation decreased haemolymph glucose and tissue phosphorylase activity and increased TCHO and glycogen levels of the hepatopancreas and muscle. Injection of 5-HT or DA did not cause significant changes in these variables in eyestalk-ablated prawns. It is hypothesized that 5-HT and DA induce hyperglycaemia in prawns by stimulating the release of crustacean hyperglycaemic hormone (CHH) from the X-organ sinus gland (XO-SG) complex located in the eyestalk.Copyright 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
Hydatid cyst of the buccal mucosa: An unusual presentation. - Indian journal of dentistry
Hydatid cyst is a parasitic cyst caused by the tapeworm Echinococcus that occurs primarily in sheep grazing areas worldwide. It is a chronic disease, and the cysts can be localized in unusual anatomical and geographic locations. It is known to affect the head and neck region. Patients must undergo a thorough systemic investigation as 20-30% show multiorgan involvement. We report a case of hydatid cyst occurring in the buccal mucosa of a 45- year -old male presenting as a small asymptomatic lump and emphasize on its rarity and diagnostic issues.
