1. Randomized clinical trial of botulinum toxin plus glyceryl trinitrate vs. botulinum toxin alone for medically resistant chronic anal fissure: overall poor healing rates.
Match Strength: 6.821
PURPOSE: This study was designed to assess whether addition of glyceryl trinitrate to botulinum toxin improves the healing rate of glyceryl trinitrate-resistant fissures over that achieved with botulinum toxin alone. METHODS: Patients were randomized between botulinum toxin plus glyceryl trinitrate (Group A) and botulinum toxin plus placebo paste (Group B). Patients were seen at baseline, four and eight weeks, and six months. The primary end point was fissure healing at eight weeks. Secondary end points were symptomatic relief, need for surgery, side effects, and reduction in maximum resting ... Read More »

2. Surgical resection of tumors located in subcortex of language area.
Match Strength: 6.065
Object. Although functional mapping facilitates the planning of surgery in and around eloquent areas, the resection of tumors adjacent to language areas remains challenging. In this report, we took notice that the language areas (Broca's and Wernicke's) present at the perisylvian fissure. We posit that if there is non-essential language area on the inner surface of the Sylvian fissure, safe tumor resection may be possible even if the tumor is located under the language cortex. Methods. The study population consisted of 5 patients with intrinsic brain tumors (frontal glioma, n = 3; temporal ... Read More »

3. Palpebral dimensions in Brazilian children: assessment based on digital images.
Match Strength: 5.726
PURPOSE: To determine palpebral dimensions and development in Brazilian children using digital images. METHODS: An observational study was performed measuring eyelid angles, palpebral fissure area and interpupillary distance in 220 children aged from 4 to 72 months. Digital images were obtained with a Sony Lithium movie camera (Sony DCR-TRV110, Brazil) in frontal view from awake children in primary ocular position; the object of observation was located at pupil height. The images were saved to tape, transferred to a Macintosh G4 (Apple Computer Inc., USA) computer and processed using NIH 1.58 ... Read More »

4. Caries prevalence of 11.5 year-olds between 1989 and 2001 in a province of North-Eastern Greece.
Match Strength: 4.222
OBJECTIVE & DESIGN: To compare cross-sectional caries prevalence data of 11.5 year old children over a 13 year period (1989-2001) and to evaluate the maximum effect of the applied preventive programme (sealants to 1st molars and 6-year health education) on DMFT values during the last five years. PARTICIPANTS: Using the records of a Public Health Centre (PHC) in NE Greece, a number (153-250) of children aged 11.5-years were selected from each calendar year, constituting 11 study groups (totalling 2,217 children), stratified by area of residency. METHOD: Annual oral health education sessions ... Read More »

5. Fibrous dysplasia of the orbital region: current clinical perspectives in ophthalmology and cranio-maxillofacial surgery.
Match Strength: 2.980
PURPOSE: To describe the multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of patients with orbital fibrous dysplasia, a slowly progressive disease that may lead to asymmetry, disfigurement, and functional ocular problems. METHODS: Ten patients with orbital fibrous dysplasia underwent bifrontal craniotomy through a coronal flap, with the removal of the supraorbital arch and dysplastic process involving the anterior and middle base of the skull. Four patients underwent superior orbital fissure and optic nerve canal decompression. Reconstruction was performed by using an autologous bone graft for both ... Read More »

6. Effect of 10% carbamide peroxide dental bleaching on microhardness of filled and unfilled sealant materials.
Match Strength: 2.828
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the effect of 10% carbamide peroxide on the microhardness of pit and fissure sealant materials. METHODS: Fluroshield, Vitroseal Alfa, and one unfilled (Clinpro) sealants were placed in Teflon matrices (4 mm in diameter by 2 mm in height) and polymerized for 40 seconds. A total of 20 specimens were prepared for each material, in which half were assigned as the control group (stored in artificial saliva and no bleaching treatment). For the remaining half, Clarigel Gold bleaching agent (10% carbamide peroxide) was placed over the ... Read More »
