Vojnosanitetski Pregled , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/vsp0810758j
Abstract: Background/Aim. Gingival recession progression in clinical practice as an ethiological factor of periodontal diseases, and symptoms of the disease have caused the development of various surgical procedures and techniques of the reconstruction of periodontal defects. The aim of this study was to verify efficacy of surgical procedures that include connective tissue autotransplants with periosteum and guided tissue regeneration for the treatment of gingival recession. Methods. The study included 20 teet with gingival recession, Müller class II and III. Ten teeth with gingival recession were treated with resorptive membrane and coronary guided surgical flap (GTR group). On the contralateral side 10 teeth with gingival recession were treated with connective tissue autotransplants with periosteum in combination with coronary guided surgical flap (TVT group). We measured the degree of epithelial attachment (DEA), width of subgingival curettage (WGC) and vertical deepness of recession (VDR). For statistical significance we used Student's ttest. Results. The study revealed statistical significance in reducing VDR by both used treatments. Root deepness in GTR and TVT group was 63.5%, and 90%, respectively. With both surgical techniques we achieved coronary dislocation of the epithelial attachment, larger zone of gingival curettage, and better oral hygiene. Conclusion. Current surgical techniques are effective in the regeneration of deep periodontal spaces and the treatment of gingival recession. Significantly better results were achieved with the used coronary guided surgical flap than with guided tissue regeneration.

Abstract: Background/Aim. Antibiotics choice and the duration of their application in the therapy of acute odontogenic abscess is considered to be controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical efficacy of ampicillin in treatment of acute odontogenic abscess and to assess the antimicrobial susceptibility of the isolated bacteria in early phase of abscess development. Methods. This study included 60 patients with acute odontogenic abscess who were surgically treated (extraction of teeth and/or abscess incision) divided into two groups, ampicillin group and surgical group (without antibiotic treatment). Results. In the ampicillin group of patients treatment lasted on the average 4.67 days, while in the surgical group 6.17 days. A total of 78 bacterial strains were isolated from 60 patients. The most often bacteria were found to be Gram-positive facultative anaerobs (68/78). The most common bacteria isolated were Viridans streptococci (43/78). Susceptibility of isolated bacteria to ampicillin were 70.5%. Conclusion. Peroral use of ampicillin, after surgical treatment in an early phase of dentoalveolar abscess development, statistically significantly reduced the time of clinical symptoms of acute odontogenic abscess in comparison to surgical treatment only. The isolated bacterial strains in an early phase of dentoalveolar abscess development showed a high sensitivity to ampicillin.

Vojnosanitetski Pregled , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/vsp0806462d
Abstract: Background/Aim. Osseointegration is a result of cellular migration, differentiation, bone formation, and bone remodeling on the surface of an implant. Each of these processes depends on platelets and blood coagulum. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is used to improve osseointegration and stability of implants. The aim of the research was to test the influence that PRP and guided tissue regeneration in bone defects have on bone defect filling and the level of bone resorption in early implant insertion. Methods. This experimental study included 10 dogs. A total of 40 BCT implants were inserted, 4 in each dog (two on the left side and two on the right side), with guided tissue regeneration. Radiologic analyses were done immediately after the insertion and 10 weeks after the insertion. Bone defect filling was measured by a graduated probe 10 weeks after the implant insertion. The following protocols were tested: I - PRP in combination with bovine deproteinized bone (BDB) and resorptive membrane of bovine origin (RBDM), II - BDB + RBDM, III - PRP + RBDM and IV - RBDM. Results. The applied protocols affected differently the bone defect filling and the level of bone resorption. Significantly better results (the lowest bone resorption) were achieved with protocol I (PRP + BDB + RBDM) in comparison with protocols III (PRP + RBDM) and IV (RBDM), but not with protocol II (BDB + RBDM). On the other hand, no significant difference was found among protocols II (BDB + RBDM), III (PRP + RBDM) and IV (RBDM) in the level of bone tissue resorption. Conslusion. The bone defect filling was largest and the level of bone resorption was lowest in the protocol with PRP applied in combination with BDB and RBDM.

Vojnosanitetski Pregled , 2007, DOI: 10.2298/vsp0709611d
Abstract: Background/Aim. Bupivacaine (Marcaine ), homologue of mepivacaine, chemically related to lidocaine, is used as a local anesthetic for local infiltration, peripheral nerve block, retrobulbar block, symphathetic block, and caudal and epidural anesthesia. The aim of this investigation was to determine and to compare clinical parameters of the local anesthetic effects of bupivacaine applied with and without a vasoconstrictor. Methods. This investigation included a total of 30 randomly selected patients, who ranged in age from 30 60 years, with partial or total anodontia in the molar region of the mandible. These patients with total or partial edentulous molar part of the mandible, scheduled for dental implantation placement, were asked to participate in the study. In the first phase of the investigation, the patients were subjected to local anesthesia with 3.5 cm3 of 0.5% bupivacaine with a vasoconstrictor (adrenalin, 1: 200 000) in the right side of the mandible. After administering local anesthesia, the placement of blade, cylindrical, transdental (B.C.T.) implants was performed. In the second stage of the investigation, in 7 10 days period after the first oral surgery, the patients were subjected to local anesthesia with 3.5 cm3 of 0.5% bupivacaine, but without a vasoconstrictor, in the left side of the mandible. After administering local anesthesia, the placement of B.C.T. implants was performed. During the performance of both oral surgery procedures, the following clinical parameters of the local anesthetic effects were monitored: latent period, duration and the potency of anesthesia, and the evaluation of the postoperative pain level. Results. The latent period under local anesthesia with 3.5 cm3 of 0.5% bupivacaine and vasoconstrictor was statistically significantly shorter than without vasoconstrictor. The duration of local anesthesia was longer without vasoconstrictor. There was no difference in the potency of anesthesia with or without a vasoconstrictor, while the lowest level of postoperative pain was found after administering bupivacaine without a vasoconstrictor use. Conclusion. The results of this investigation show that bupivacaine without a vasoconstrictor is efficient when used for local anesthesia in placing dental implants since it provides better blood circulation required for good dental implant osseointegration. .

Vojnosanitetski Pregled , 2012, DOI: 10.2298/vsp1212076b
Abstract: Background/Aim. A wide range of resorbable and nonresorbable membranes have been investigated over the last two decades. The barrier membrane protects the defect from ingrowth of soft tissue cells and allows bone progenitor cells to develop bone within a blood clot that is formed beneath the barrier membrane. The membranes are applied to reconstruct small bony defect prior to implantation, to cover dehiscences and fenestrations around dental implants. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of human resorbable demineralized membrane (RHDM) thickness on bone regeneration. Methods. The experiment, approved by Ethical Committee, was performed on 6 dogs and conducted into three phases. Bone defects were created in all the 6 dogs on the left side of the mandible, 8 weeks after extraction of second, third and fourth premolars. One defect was covered with RHDM 100 μ thick, one with RHDM 200 μ thick, and the third defect left empty (control defect). The histopathological analysis was done 2, 4 and 6 months after the surgery. In the third phase samples of bone tissue were taken and subjected to histopathological analysis. Results. In all the 6 dogs the defects treated with RHDM 200 μ thick showed higher level of bone regeneration in comparison with the defect treated with RHDM 100 μ thick and especially with empty defect. Conclusion. Our results demonstrated that the thicker membrane showed the least soft tissue ingrowths and promoted better bone formation at 6 months compared with a thinner one.

Abstract: Introduction. Odontogenic keratocyst (OKC) is a rare developmental, epithelial and benign cyst of the jaws of odontogenic origin with high recurrence rates. The third molar region, especially the angle of the mandible and the ascending ramus are involved far more frequently than the maxilla. The choice of treatment approach was based on the size of the cyst, recurrence status, and radiographic evidence of cortical perforation. Different surgical treatment options like marsupialization, decompression, enucleation, enucleation with Carnoy’s solution, peripheral ostectomy with or without Carnoy’s solution, and jaw resection have been discussed in the literature with variable rates of recurrence. Case report. We presented a 52-yearold male with orthokeratinized odontogenic keratocyst. Elliptical unilocular radiolucency located in the third molar region and the ascending ramus of the mandible, 40 × 25 mm in diameter with radiographic evidence of cortical perforation at the anterior ramus border of the mandible 20 mm in diameter, was registrated on orthopantomographic radiography. Surgical treatment included enucleation of the cyst and peripheral ostectomy with the use of Carnoy’s solution and excision of the overlying attached mucosa. Postoperatively, no paresthesia in the inervation area of the inferior alveolaris nerve was registrated. Recurrences were not registrated within 5 years post-intervention. Coclusion. Treatment of odontogenic keratocyst with enucleation and peripheral ostectomy with the use of Carnoy’s solution and excision of the overlying attached mucosa had a very low rate of recurrence. Radical and more aggressive surgical treatments as jaw resection should be reserved for multiple recurrent cysts and when OKC is associated with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS). Following the treatment protocol in the management of OKC and systematic and long-term postsurgical follow-up are considered key elements for successful results.

Abstract: Background/Aim. Achievement of the osseointegration of dental implants is of crucial importance for their long-term survival. One of the factors that influence the osseointegration is a surgical method of implantation. The outcome of osseointegration can be evaluated on the basis of implant mobility in bone. The aim of this study was to investigate and compare the mobility of B.C.T. dental titanium implants inserted to experimental animals using an one and two-phase method. Methods. The investigation was performed using a split-mouth design on nine dogs, male german shephards, average age of 3.5 years and average weight of 32 kg. Extractions of the third and fourth lower premolars were performed under intravenous (i.v.) anaesthesia with 5% ketamine chloride. Eight weeks after the extractions, the implants, diameter of 4.5 mm each, with four threads 13.7 mm long, were inserted. Eighteen implants were inserted one side of the jaw using a one-phase method, and another 18 implants were inserted contralaterally using a two-phase method. Three months after the implantation, the implant mobility was evaluated. Three measurements were performed with a Periotest device, and average values were calculated. The implant mobility was classified according to the Periotest scale in four groups of Periotest values (PTV) and compared. A total of 36 implants were inserted in 9 experimental dogs. The PTV ranged from -7.666 to + 50. Results. According to the Periotest scale, 14 one-phase implants (78%) were classified into the 0 group of PTV, and 4 one-phase implants (22%) in the 3rd group. Thirteen two phase implants (72%) were classified in the 0 group, and 5 implants in the 3rd group of Periotest scale. The difference in the average values of PTV between the two methods was 0.879 which was not statistically significant. Conclusion. This study showed that the method of implant insertion had no influence on the implant mobility, i.e. satisfactory osseointegration could be achieved by both methods. Further clinical parameters, as well as pathohistological and histomorphometric ones, have to be evaluated in order to assess better outcome of a particular method.

Abstract: Introduction. There are subjective and objective ways to examine the effects of vocal therapy in voice disorders. The most precise and objective check-up is the use of computer voice analysis. Objective. The aim of the research was to perform a detailed analysis of acoustic structure of the vowel A before and after voice treatment in patients with vocal fold nodules in order to obtain objective verification of the vocal rehabilitation success. Methods. We examined 30 female patients, aged 34.6±6.69 years, with vocal fold nodules. Acoustic parameters of voice were compared with the control group consisting of 21 subjects without voice pathology. In all persons the vowel A was recorded and analyzed before and after a month of vocal therapy. The success of the vocal therapy was tracked using computer analysis of vocal structure. Signal, noise and tremor parameters were processed. Results. Of the analyzed vowel A parameters: STD, PER, JITA, JITT, RAP, vFO, ShdB, SHIM, APQ, VTI, SPI, F0, NHR, FTRI, eleven improved (p<0.05 and p<0.01). Three parameters (F0, NHR, FTRI) changed showing improvement, but the obtained differences were not statistically significant (p>0.05). Conclusion. Based on the obtained results it was concluded that vocal therapy gave satisfactory results, but that it should be continually applied until full stabilization of the voice.

Abstract: Kidney transplantation is a treatment of choice for patient with end stage renal disease. Chronic renal failure is characterized with weak cellular and humoral immunity. In our paper we present our experience with presence of malignancy in renal transplant patients. Urology clinic in Belgrade transplanted 411 patients over the period of 16 years. Living donor transplantation was performed for 272 and cadaveric kidney transplant for 139 patients. In the postoperative follow up, malignancies were diagnosed in 7 of the transplanted patients. Three patients developed basal cell skin carcinoma, one was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the transplanted kidney, one developed transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder and testicular tumors were diagnosed in two patients. Postoperative immunosuppressive therapy usually double or triple when patients are in the immunological high risk group. Incidence of malignancy according to big health centers is around 1 in every 1000 transplanted patients. It is also noted the rise of incidence of malignancies in transplanted patient in over 50%.

Abstract: Severe pathologic resorption of the mandible may result in weakening of the jaw, unstable dentures, abnormal functions of mastication and speech, and a marked reduction of the facial and vertical dimension. This clinical report describes the rehabilitation of a severely resorbed mandible treated with mini dental implants and an iliac bone graft. A bone graft harvested from the iliac crest was used for the reconstruction of a severely resorbed mandible in a female patient aged 59 years. Six months after graft remodeling, four mini dental implants were inserted. The patient was prostheticaly rehabilitated using an implant retained denture. This treatment was considered to be a beneficial treatment choice in the maintenance of satisfactory functional and esthetic results in patients with severely atrophied alveolar ridges.
