Fluorimetric multiparameter cell assay at the single cell level fabricated by optical tweezers. (1/328)

A fluorimetric multi-parameter cell sensor at the single cell level is presented which makes it possible to observe the physiological behavior of different cell lines, different physiological parameters, and statistical data at the same time. Different cell types were immobilized at predefined positions with high accuracy using optical tweezers and adhesion promoting surface layers. The process is applicable to both adherent and non-adherent cells. Coating of the immobilization area with mussel adhesive protein was shown to be essential for the process. Intracellular proton and calcium concentrations in different cell classes were simultaneously imaged and the specific activation of T lymphocytes was demonstrated. This method should be especially useful for drug screening due to the small sample volume and high information density.  (+info)

In vitro comparison of the retention capacity of new aesthetic brackets. (2/328)

Tensile bond strength and bond failure location were evaluated in vitro for two types of aesthetic brackets (non-silanated ceramic, polycarbonate) and one stainless steel bracket, using bovine teeth as the substrate and diacrylate resin as the adhesive. The results show that metallic bracket had the highest bond strength (13.21 N) followed by the new plastic bracket (12.01 N), which does not require the use of a primer. The non-silanated ceramic bracket produced the lowest bond strength (8.88 N). Bond failures occurred mainly between bracket and cement, although a small percentage occurred between the enamel-cement interface with the metal and plastic brackets and within the cement for the plastic bracket. With the ceramic bracket all the failures occurred at the bracket-cement interface. This suggests that the problems of enamel lesions produced by this type of bracket may have been eliminated. The results also show that the enamel/adhesive bond is stronger than the adhesive/bracket bond in this in vitro study.  (+info)

Autoclaving impairs the connector-tube bond of the laryngeal mask airway but not its airtightness. (3/328)

The general-purpose laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is re-usable when undamaged, and cleaned and autoclaved correctly. We had found weakening of the silicone adhesive that bonds the connector of the LMA to the tube. We report that repeated autoclaving damaged the adhesive such that the connector could be rotated in the tube after the 12th autoclave cycle in almost all of the LMA tested. The damage to the adhesive did not affect the airtightness of the junction, which appears to be maintained by the material properties of the connector and tube and by the shape of the join.  (+info)

Abnormal liver function tests following inadvertent inhalation of volatile hydrocarbons. (4/328)

The use of aerosols containing volatile hydrocarbons in conditions of poor ventilation can result in accidental overexposure which can cause central nervous system effects and hepatic injury. We present a case in which inadvertent usage of an adhesive spray used to make greeting cards resulted in vague neurological symptoms and abnormal liver function tests both of which fully resolved on discontinuation.  (+info)

A laboratory investigation to compare enamel preparation by sandblasting or acid etching prior to bracket bonding. (5/328)

A laboratory investigation to compare the mean shear debonding force and mode of bond failure of metallic brackets bonded to sandblasted and acid-etched enamel is described. The buccal surfaces of 30 extracted human premolars were sandblasted for 5 seconds with 50 mu alumina and the buccal surfaces of a further 30 human premolars were etched with 37 per cent phosphoric acid for 15 seconds. Following storage for 24 hours at 37 degrees C in distilled water, shear debonding force was measured using an Instron Universal Testing Machine with a cross-head speed of 10 mm/minute. Mean shear debonding force was significantly lower for brackets bonded to sandblasted enamel compared to acid etched enamel (P < 0.001). Weibull analysis showed that at a given stress the probability of failure was significantly greater for brackets bonded to sandblasted enamel. Brackets bonded to etched enamel showed a mixed mode of bond failure whereas following sandblasting, failure was adhesive at the enamel/composite interface (P < 0.01).  (+info)

Factors affecting the shear bond strength of orthodontic brackets to porcelain. (6/328)

The aim of this investigation was to establish a regime for orthodontic bonding to feldspathic porcelain, which ensures adequate bond strength (6-8 MPa) with minimal damage on debond and consisted of an ex vivo investigation measuring the effects of porcelain surface preparation and thermocycling on shear bond strength of orthodontic brackets. One-hundred-and-twenty feldspathic porcelain bonded crown surfaces were divided into 12 equally-sized groups to assess the effects of: (1) glaze removal, (2) application of hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid, or omission of acid treatment, and (3) silane priming upon the bond strength of premolar brackets bonded with Right-on (TM) composite resin adhesive. Specimens were subjected to thermocycling and then to shear debonding forces on an Instron machine. Removal of the porcelain glaze, or use of hydrofluoric acid, prior to bonding were found to be unnecessary to secure the target bond strength. Hydrofluoric acid application was associated with increased porcelain surface damage. Thermocycling caused a significant reduction in shear bond strength to porcelain (P < 0*001). The best regime for orthodontic bonding to feldspathic porcelain was to apply phosphoric acid for 60 seconds, and prime with silane prior to bonding. Usually the porcelain surfaces could be repolished. Refereed Paper  (+info)

Differentiation of mucilage secretory cells of the Arabidopsis seed coat. (7/328)

In some plant species, including Arabidopsis, fertilization induces the epidermal cells of the outer ovule integument to differentiate into a specialized seed coat cell type with a unique morphology and containing large quantities of polysaccharide mucilage (pectin). Such seed coat mucilage cells are necessary for neither viability nor germination under normal laboratory conditions. Thus, the Arabidopsis seed coat offers a unique system with which to use genetics to identify genes controlling cell morphogenesis and complex polysaccharide biosynthesis and secretion. As a first step in the application of this system, we have used microscopy to investigate the structure and differentiation of Arabidopsis seed coat mucilage cells, including cell morphogenesis and the synthesis, secretion, and extrusion of mucilage. During seed coat development in Arabidopsis, the epidermal cells of the outer ovule integument grow and differentiate into cells that produce large quantities of mucilage between the primary cell wall and plasma membrane. Concurrent with mucilage production, the cytoplasm is shaped into a column in the center of the cell. Following mucilage secretion the cytoplasmic column is surrounded by a secondary cell wall to form a structure known as the columella. Thus, differentiation of the seed coat mucilage cells involves a highly regulated series of events including growth, morphogenesis, mucilage biosynthesis and secretion, and secondary cell wall synthesis.  (+info)

1H-NMR studies of the interaction of dental adhesive monomer, 4-META with calcium. (8/328)

Our objective was to determine whether high-resolution proton-nuclear magnetic resonance (500 MHz) could be utilized for detection of ionic binding interaction of the 4-META resin system with calcium derived from hydroxyapatite. The stability of 4-META in aqueous medium was studied, findings indicated that 4-META was rapidly converted to 4-MET, a hydrate product of 4-META in 10% D2O/DMSO-d6. The 1H-NMR signals of the methacryloyloxyethoxy group of 4-MET remained intact following the addition of both monocalcium phosphate (MCP) and dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (brushite) solution, whereas those of its trimellitic portion were markedly shifted upfield depending on the phosphate concentration. The shielding effect followed by upfield shifts was due to the localization of electron density surrounding the carboxylate anions that were dissociated by the interaction with calcium counter cation. The shielding effect of 4-MET with brushite was larger than that with MCP. An ionic interaction of 4-MET derived from 4-META with calcium was demonstrated.  (+info)

1. Improper fit of dental restorations (fillings, crowns, etc.)
2. Inadequate sealing of dental implants
3. Loose or damaged dental restorations
4. Poor oral hygiene
5. Trauma to the mouth
6. Inadequate suction during dental procedures

Dental leakage can have significant consequences, including:

1. Bacterial contamination of the surgical site
2. Delayed healing
3. Increased risk of post-operative complications
4. Decreased success rate of dental procedures
5. Potential for infection or other adverse events

To minimize the risk of dental leakage, dentists should:

1. Use proper technique and instrumentation during dental procedures
2. Ensure proper fit and sealing of dental restorations
3. Maintain proper oral hygiene before and after dental procedures
4. Use adequate suction during dental procedures
5. Monitor the surgical site for signs of leakage or other complications.

Early detection and treatment of dental leakage can help prevent serious complications and ensure a successful outcome for dental procedures.

There are several types of bursitis, including:

1. Subacromial bursitis: This type occurs on the underside of the acromion (a bony projection on the shoulder blade) and is common among athletes who throw or perform repetitive overhead motions.
2. Retrocalcaneal bursitis: This type affects the heel of the foot and is caused by excessive standing or walking, poorly fitting shoes, or injury to the ankle or heel.
3. Prepatellar bursitis: This type affects the front of the kneecap and can be caused by direct trauma, repetitive kneeling, or inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.
4. Olecranal bursitis: This type affects the elbow and is often caused by repetitive flexion and extension of the arm.
5. Trochanteric bursitis: This type affects the thigh bone and is common among older adults or those with hip arthritis.

Bursitis can be diagnosed through physical examination, imaging tests like X-rays or ultrasound, and aspiration of fluid from the affected bursa. Treatment options for bursitis depend on the severity of the condition and may include rest, ice, compression, elevation (RICE), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and physical therapy exercises to improve range of motion and strength. In severe cases or those that do not respond to conservative treatment, surgical drainage or removal of the affected bursa may be necessary.

Examples of how 'Tissue Adhesions' is used in the medical field:

1. In gastrointestinal surgery, tissue adhesions can form between the intestines and other organs, leading to bowel obstruction, inflammation, or other complications.
2. In cardiovascular surgery, tissue adhesions can form between the heart and surrounding tissues, causing impaired heart function and increasing the risk of postoperative complications.
3. In gynecological surgery, tissue adhesions can form between the uterus and other pelvic organs, leading to pain, bleeding, and infertility.
4. In oncologic surgery, tissue adhesions can form between cancerous tissues and surrounding normal tissues, making it difficult to remove the tumor completely.
5. In chronic diseases such as endometriosis, tissue adhesions can form between the uterus and other pelvic structures, leading to pain and infertility.
6. Tissue adhesions can also form within the skin, causing keloids or other types of scarring.

Treatment options for tissue adhesions depend on the location, size, and severity of the adhesions, as well as the underlying cause. Some common treatment options include:

1. Surgical removal of adhesions: This involves surgically removing the fibrous bands or scar tissue that are causing the adhesions.
2. Steroid injections: Injecting steroids into the affected area can help reduce inflammation and shrink the adhesions.
3. Physical therapy: Gentle stretching and exercise can help improve range of motion and reduce stiffness in the affected area.
4. Radiofrequency ablation: This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat to break down and remove the fibrous bands causing the adhesions.
5. Laser therapy: Laser therapy can be used to break down and remove the fibrous bands causing the adhesions, or to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
6. Natural remedies: Some natural remedies such as turmeric, ginger, and omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce inflammation and improve symptoms.

Preventing tissue adhesions is not always possible, but there are some measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of their formation. These include:

1. Proper wound care: Keeping wounds clean and dry, and using sterile dressings can help prevent infection and reduce the risk of adhesion formation.
2. Minimizing trauma: Avoiding unnecessary trauma to the affected area can help reduce the risk of adhesion formation.
3. Gentle exercise: Gentle exercise and stretching after surgery or injury can help improve range of motion and reduce stiffness in the affected area.
4. Early mobilization: Early mobilization after surgery or injury can help reduce the risk of adhesion formation.
5. Avoiding smoking: Smoking can impede wound healing and increase the risk of adhesion formation, so avoiding smoking is recommended.
6. Using anti-adhesive agents: Applying anti-adhesive agents such as silicone or hydrogel to the affected area after surgery or injury can help reduce the risk of adhesion formation.

It's important to note that the most effective method for preventing or treating tissue adhesions will depend on the specific cause and location of the adhesions, as well as the individual patient's needs and medical history. A healthcare professional should be consulted for proper evaluation and treatment.

Demineralization is the opposite process of remineralization, where minerals are deposited back onto the tooth surface. Demineralization can progress over time and lead to tooth decay, also known as dental caries, if not treated promptly. Early detection and prevention of demineralization through good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups can help to prevent tooth decay and maintain a healthy tooth structure.

Tooth demineralization can be detected early on by dental professionals using various diagnostic tools such as radiographs (x-rays) or visual examination of the teeth. Treatment options for demineralization depend on the severity of the condition and may include fluoride treatments, fillings, or other restorative procedures to repair damaged tooth structures.

It is important to maintain good oral hygiene practices such as brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and limiting sugary snacks and drinks to prevent demineralization and promote remineralization of the teeth. Regular dental check-ups are also crucial in detecting early signs of demineralization and ensuring proper treatment to maintain good oral health.

Symptoms of lacerations can include pain, bleeding, swelling, and redness around the affected area. In some cases, lacerations may also be accompanied by other injuries, such as fractures or internal bleeding.

Diagnosis of lacerations is typically made through a physical examination of the wound and surrounding tissue. Imaging tests, such as X-rays or CT scans, may be ordered to assess the extent of the injury and identify any underlying complications.

Treatment for lacerations depends on the severity of the wound and can range from simple cleaning and bandaging to more complex procedures such as suturing or stapling. In some cases, antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection. It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen over time, as untreated lacerations can lead to infection, scarring, and other complications.

In the medical field, lacerations are often classified based on their location and severity. Common types of lacerations include:

* Linear lacerations: These are straight cuts that occur along a single line.
* Blunt trauma lacerations: These are caused by blunt force, such as from a fall or collision.
* Avulsion lacerations: These occur when skin is torn away from underlying tissue, often due to a sharp object.
* Torn lacerations: These are caused by a sudden and forceful stretching of the skin, such as from a sports injury.

Overall, the medical field recognizes lacerations as a common type of injury that can have significant consequences if not properly treated. Prompt and appropriate treatment can help to minimize the risk of complications and ensure proper healing.

The presence of a smear layer has been associated with delayed healing, increased risk of infection, and decreased strength of the newly formed tissue. Therefore, removing or reducing the smear layer is an important step in wound care to promote optimal healing outcomes.

The term "smear layer" was first introduced by Dr. Jeffrey M. Olsen and colleagues in 2007, and since then it has been widely adopted in the medical field as a key concept in wound care.

Arachnoiditis can be caused by a variety of factors, such as infection, injury, or certain medical procedures. It is often difficult to diagnose, as the symptoms can be similar to those of other conditions, and there is no specific test for it. Treatment options are limited and may include pain medication, physical therapy, and other supportive measures.

Arachnoiditis is a rare condition, but it can have a significant impact on quality of life for those affected. It is important to seek medical attention if symptoms persist or worsen over time, as early diagnosis and treatment may improve outcomes.

Secondary dentin formation is a normal process that occurs in response to various stimuli, such as mechanical trauma, caries, or root canal treatment. The new layer of dentin helps to protect the pulp from further damage and can also help to strengthen the tooth.

In endodontic therapy, secondary dentin formation is often encouraged in order to prevent further inflammation and promote healing of the pulp. This can be achieved through various techniques, such as using specific medicaments or applying a special type of filling material called a "dentin-bonding agent."

Secondary dentin formation can also occur spontaneously over time, without any specific treatment. However, this process can be influenced by factors such as the severity of the injury, the presence of bacteria, and the overall health of the individual.

There are several types of intestinal obstruction, including:

1. Mechanical bowel obstruction: This type of obstruction is caused by a physical blockage in the intestine, such as adhesions or hernias.
2. Non-mechanical bowel obstruction: This type of obstruction is caused by a decrease in the diameter of the intestine, such as from inflammation or scarring.
3. Paralytic ileus: This type of obstruction is caused by a delay in the movement of food through the intestine, usually due to nerve damage or medication side effects.
4. Intestinal ischemia: This type of obstruction is caused by a decrease in blood flow to the intestine, which can lead to tissue damage and death.

Intestinal obstructions can be diagnosed through a variety of tests, including:

1. Abdominal X-rays: These can help identify any physical blockages in the intestine.
2. CT scans: These can provide more detailed images of the intestine and help identify any blockages or other issues.
3. Endoscopy: This involves inserting a flexible tube with a camera into the mouth and down into the intestine to visualize the inside of the intestine.
4. Biopsy: This involves removing a small sample of tissue from the intestine for examination under a microscope.

Treatment for intestinal obstructions depends on the underlying cause and severity of the blockage. Some common treatments include:

1. Fluid and electrolyte replacement: This can help restore hydration and electrolyte balance in the body.
2. Nasojejunal tube placement: A small tube may be inserted through the nose and into the jejunum to allow fluids and medications to pass through the blockage.
3. Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the blockage or repair any damage to the intestine.
4. Medication: Depending on the underlying cause of the obstruction, medications such as antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed to help resolve the issue.

Preventing intestinal obstructions is often challenging, but some strategies can help reduce the risk. These include:

1. Avoiding foods that can cause blockages, such as nuts or seeds.
2. Eating a balanced diet and avoiding constipation.
3. Drinking plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
4. Managing underlying medical conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease or diabetes.
5. Avoiding medications that can cause constipation or other digestive problems.

There are several types of tooth fractures, including:

1. Vertical fractures: These occur when the tooth breaks vertically and can affect one or more layers of the tooth.
2. Horizontal fractures: These occur when the tooth breaks horizontally and can affect the enamel, dentin, or cementum layers.
3. Oblique fractures: These occur when the tooth breaks at an angle and can affect multiple layers of the tooth.
4. Root fractures: These occur when the root of the tooth becomes cracked or broken.
5. Crown-root fractures: These occur when the crown (the visible part of the tooth) and the root become separated.

Tooth fractures can cause symptoms such as pain, sensitivity to temperature or sweetness, difficulty chewing or biting, and discomfort when speaking or opening the mouth. Treatment options for tooth fractures depend on the severity of the injury and may include dental fillings, crowns, root canals, or extraction.

It is important to seek professional dental care as soon as possible if you suspect that you have a tooth fracture, as early treatment can help prevent further damage and restore the tooth to its normal function and appearance.

Symptoms may include sensitivity, discomfort, visible holes or stains on teeth, bad breath, and difficulty chewing or biting. If left untreated, dental caries can progress and lead to more serious complications such as abscesses, infections, and even tooth loss.

To prevent dental caries, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene habits, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and using mouthwash regularly. Limiting sugary foods and drinks and visiting a dentist for regular check-ups can also help prevent the disease.

Dental caries is treatable through various methods such as fillings, crowns, root canals, extractions, and preventive measures like fissure sealants and fluoride applications. Early detection and prompt treatment are crucial to prevent further damage and restore oral health.

Tooth erosion can lead to sensitive teeth, pain, and discomfort when eating or drinking hot or cold foods and beverages. In severe cases, it can cause teeth to appear yellow or brown, become brittle and prone to breaking, or even result in tooth loss.

To prevent tooth erosion, good oral hygiene practices such as regular brushing and flossing, avoiding acidic foods and drinks, and using a fluoride-based toothpaste can help protect teeth from acid wear. Dental sealants or varnishes may also be applied to the teeth to provide extra protection against erosion.

If tooth erosion has already occurred, dental treatments such as fillings, crowns, or veneers may be necessary to repair damaged teeth. In severe cases, teeth may need to be extracted and replaced with dental implants or bridges.

The shoulder is a complex joint that consists of several bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which work together to provide a wide range of motion and stability. Any disruption in this delicate balance can cause pain and dysfunction.

Some common causes of shoulder pain include:

1. Rotator cuff injuries: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, providing stability and mobility. Injuries to the rotator cuff can cause pain and weakness in the shoulder.
2. Bursitis: Bursae are small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joints and reduce friction between the bones, muscles, and tendons. Inflammation of the bursae (bursitis) can cause pain and swelling in the shoulder.
3. Tendinitis: Tendinitis is inflammation of the tendons, which connect the muscles to the bones. Tendinitis in the shoulder can cause pain and stiffness.
4. Dislocations: A dislocation occurs when the ball of the humerus (upper arm bone) is forced out of the shoulder socket. This can cause severe pain, swelling, and limited mobility.
5. Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that affects the joints, including the shoulder. It can cause pain, stiffness, and limited mobility.
6. Frozen shoulder: Also known as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder is a condition where the connective tissue in the shoulder joint becomes inflamed and scarred, leading to pain and stiffness.
7. Labral tears: The labrum is a cartilage ring that surrounds the shoulder socket, providing stability and support. Tears to the labrum can cause pain and instability in the shoulder.
8. Fractures: Fractures of the humerus, clavicle, or scapula (shoulder blade) can cause pain, swelling, and limited mobility.
9. Rotator cuff tears: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that provide stability and support to the shoulder joint. Tears to the rotator cuff can cause pain and weakness in the shoulder.
10. Impingement syndrome: Impingement syndrome occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff become pinched or compressed as they pass through the shoulder joint, leading to pain and inflammation.

These are just a few examples of common shoulder injuries and conditions. If you're experiencing shoulder pain or stiffness, it's important to see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
