Comparison of Calcium Hydroxide Removal Activity of New Sonic System Vibringe and Different Irrigation Systems

Banu Aricioglu and Omer Hatipoglu

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 05, 2019

The aim of this study was to evaluate the calcium hydroxide removal activities of Vibringe, EndoVac, passive ultrasonic and conventional needle irrigations by means of scanning electron microscope. Seventy single-rooted human mandibular premolar teeth were used for this study. The samples were prepared with the ProTaper rotary system up to F4 and filled with calcium hydroxide. One week later, Calcium hydroxide was removed from the root canals with the several irrigation methods as follows: Vibringe (Group 1), EndoVac (Group 2), conventional needle irrigations (Group 3), passive ultrasonic (Gro...

Risk of Legionellosis from Exposure to Water Aerosol from Industrial Cooling Tower

Margita Spalekova, Martina Kotrbancova, Miriam Fulova and Danka Simonyiova

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 05, 2019

Community-acquired cases of Legionella infection or even outbreaks can be attributed to inhalation of aerosols from devices such as hot water system, cooling towers, hot tubs, industrial equipment and indoor fountains. Legionellae survive in water in temperatures between 20°C and 50°C and tend to colonize particularly water systems rich of sludge, rust, biofilms and amoebae where they can multiply. Cooling towers (CT) in industry are used as heat-transfer devices in which warm water is cooled by evaporation in atmospheric air. Aerosols can transmit Legionellae to susceptible hosts, w...

Left Ventricular Pacing in Patients with Mechanical Tricuspid Valve Replacement

Sara Khodor, Shreya Mishra, Dany Sayad and Anant Kharod

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 01, 2019

In patients with mechanical tricuspid valve replacement (TVR), management of atrioventricular conduction abnormalities can be challenging given inaccessibility of the right ventricle (RV) with an endocardial pacing lead. While implantation of an epicardial lead may serve as an alternative; it requires invasive surgical placement and is not an ideal option in patients with prior thoracotomy. The development of specialized leads have made lead implantation via coronary sinus (CS) an attractive alternative for pacing in this patient population....

Relationship between Hypovitaminosis D and Cardiac Abnormalities in Pre Dialysis Chronic Kidney Disease

Maria Carolina Neves, Luis Sette, Monica Becker, Lucila Valente and Brivaldo Markman Filho

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 01, 2019

The presence of structural and functional changes in the left ventricle (LV) are good predictors of cardiovascular events in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are associated with decreasing renal function. Studies in CKD patients on hemodialysis evidenced associations of serum 25-OH vitamin D (vit D) with myocardial function and structural changes. However, it is not known whether serum vit D is associated with Doppler echocardiogram (ECHO)-based cardiac changes in patients with CKD managed conservatively....

Hyperlipidemia Management in Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin- Kexin Type 9 (PCSK 9) Inhibitors Era

Abdulhalim Jamal Kinsara

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 01, 2019

Significant improvement in control of cardiovascular risk factors has been driven by performance measurement that focused on attainment of specific risk factor thresholds for blood glucose, lipids and blood pressure. Diet, statin and ezetimibe have reasonably controlled hyperlipidemia. However the discovery of proprotein convertase subtilisin-kexin type 9 inhibitors has given new hope of reaching the target lipid profile especially in the high-risk group and familial hypercholesterolemia. Here with we reviewed the current data and explore the cardiovascular prevention effect of this group....

Fast Track Colorectal Surgery for Deep Endometriosis: A Prospective Randomized Trial

Irene Gentile, MD, Roberto Rossini, MD, Marco Scioscia, MD, Davide Brunelli, MD, Marcello Ceccaroni, MD and Giacomo Ruffo, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 01, 2019

Application of fast track protocols in laparoscopic colorectal surgery has been assessed in oncological cases with contrasting results. This study was to assess the feasibility and advantages in a group of young women suffering from bowel endometriosis. Over one year, 227 women were recruited for this prospective randomized study on fast track protocol for laparoscopic surgery for bowel endometriosis. Patients were allocated to a perioperative fast-track or conventional care in a 1:3 ratio and clinical outcomes and costs were evaluated....

Self-Esteem as the Mediating Factor between Parenting Styles and Creativity

Huong TM Pham and Betsy Ng

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: June 03, 2019

Creativity is increasingly valued as a skill for the future workplaces. Educators and employers are paying more and more attention to creativity training, the effectiveness of which relies on an understanding of creativity influencing factors. Yet, the seed for creativity might be sawn early in life and nurtured through years in family and school. Links between parenting styles and creativity have been reported in literature. However, parenting styles only explain for a small variation in creativity, suggesting the roles of other factors. This paper goes further by exploring the links between ...

Prevalence and Risk Factors of Malaria among HIV Infected Pregnant Women Attending Antenatal Clinics at Sokoto, Nigeria

Chisom Emmanuel Okechukwu, Kabiru Mohammed, Eugene I Ikeh, Thompson HI Spencer, Nwoke Clinton Chinedu and Idris Abdullahi Nasir

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: May 31, 2019

Malaria during pregnancy remains a serious public health problem especially in cases when there is a co-infection with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The aim of this cross-sectional study was to determine the prevalence of malaria parasitaemia and their associated risk factors amongst HIV infected pregnant women in Sokoto State, North-Western Nigeria. After informed consent was obtained, one hundred and three (103), HIV infected pregnant women attending antenatal clinics (ANC) participated in the study....

Atypical Levels of Heavy Metals, Creatinine, Haptoglobin, and Ferritin Found in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Outpatients vs. Healthy Controls: Possible Utility as a Diagnostic Biomarker

David A Steenblock and Taruna Ikrar

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: May 31, 2019

Heavy metal toxicity has been conjectured as a possible risk factor for and player in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neurodegenerative disorders. To test for a correlational relationship or linkage, we conducted a retrospective study of 54 sALS and 26 healthy volunteers who agreed to serve as controls, all of whom were seen at the Personalized Regenerative Medicine Clinic (San Clemente, California USA) between 2011 and 2016....

Hepatitis B Core Antibody Prevalence among Voluntary Blood Donors in Thailand

Kriangsak Chaiwong, Wilawan Saekram, Panya Thunnok, Sineenart Oota, Sonu Bhatnagar and Ubonwon Charoonruangrit

Article Type: Brief Report | First Published: June 03, 2019

Hepatitis B core (anti-HBc) antibody is an effective marker for occult Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and is an integral part of blood donor screening in many countries. This study was aimed to evaluate the prevalence of anti-HBc antibodies among voluntary blood donors in Thailand and its significance to reduce the risk of transfusion transmitted HBV infection. A total of 3,197 voluntary blood donor samples that were pre-screened non-reactive for HBs-Ag serology and HBV ID-NAT were tested for anti-HBc Total and IgM antibody and anti-HBs titers on ARCHITECT i6000 (Abbott Diagnostics, Illinoi...
