Clinical and Radiographic Assessment of Single or Combined Treatment with Lepidium sativum and Alendronate of Non-Surgically Treated Chronic Periodontitis in Postmenopausal Osteoporotic Women.

CONCLUSIONS: Within the limits of the study, it is concluded that Lepidium sativum can be used in the treatment of osteoporotic postmenopausal women with chronic periodontitis who refuse treatment with ALN. The combined use of LS and ALN may have a synergistic effect resulting in a more favorable clinical response, increased bone mass than using ALN alone when combined with conventional therapy in treatment of chronic periodontitis in postmenopausal osteoporotic women.

Conclusions: AP is a common finding in OI patients (54%). Among hips of OI patients that met criteria for AP in early radiographs, 42% (20/48) demonstrated greater CE angles in their latest radiographs. Similar changes were observed in OI patients who did not initially meet criteria for diagnosis for AP. However, CE angle measurements between the 2 groups did not significantly differ (P=0.71). In terms of Kohler line crossing, patients that met criteria for AP in early radiographs had significantly greater change per year than those that did not have AP criteria (P

This review proposes a structured approach to analyzing conventional radiographs of adult hips by focusing on alterations of radiological bone density, femoral head contours, and the joint space. Conventional radiography enables detecting subtle changes in cortical contours and joint space width due to its high spatial resolution. It is limited to the detection of cortical changes in areas to which the x-ray beam is tangent. It has reduced sensitivity for the detection of trabecular bone and medullary changes. Radiographic findings in common hip disorders, such as osteoarthritis, osteonecrosis, transient osteoporosis, and ...

Study Design. Prospective research in middle-aged and elderly people. Objective. To investigate low back pain (LBP) and neuropathic pain (NeP); spinal alignment and range of motion (ROM); spinal degenerative changes in plain radiography; osteoporosis; muscle strength; and physical ability as possible risk factors for poor quality of life (QOL). Summary of Background Data. The aging of society has led to an increase in elderly people with chronic pain, including LBP and NeP. However, there has been no analysis of NeP and spinal sagittal alignment as potential risk factors for decreased QOL in the healthy general pop...

Authors: Kunitoki K, Mutoh T, Tatewaki Y, Takano Y, Yamamoto S, Shimomura H, Nakagawa M, Arai H, Taki Y Abstract BACKGROUND Osteoporosis is a major global public health problem in the current aging era. Osteoporosis is often diagnosed only after patients have a fracture that causes a severe decline in ability to perform activities of daily life. Although the current criterion standard for diagnosing osteoporosis is dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), this modality remains less prevalent among general practitioners in geriatric medicine. The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic utility of visual ins...

The cage layers in control group (12 birds) and experiment group (24 birds) were respectively injected with 300 µL sodium chloride and 300 μg eucaryon recombinant plasmid pcDNA3.1(+)-chOPG. Eighty 56-week-old ISA cage layers were divided into group A, B, C and D randomly. Group A is for control group, while plasmid pcDNA3.1(+)-chOPG was injected to B, C, D groups in mu...

Sacral fractures result from high-impact trauma or in the form of insufficiency or pathologic fractures, resulting from osteoporosis, radiation therapy, or malignancy. In the emergency setting, the escalating use of computed tomography has substantially increased diagnosis of sacral fractures, which are frequently occult on radiographs. Radiologists should be familiar with and create reports using the most current fracture classification systems, because this improves communication with the treatment team and optimizes patient care. Sacroplasty is a safe, minimally invasive treatment option for many types of sacral fractur...
