Quality parameters of the tibiae and femora of ostriches
(Fundação APINCO de Ciência e Tecnologia Avícolas, 2008-09-01)
An experiment was carried out to establish mean bone quality values of the tibiae and femora of ostriches and to evaluate these bones. The right leg bones of 10 males and 10 female African Black ostriches were evaluated. ...
The pQCT “Bone Strength Indices” (BSIs, SSI). Relative mechanical impact and diagnostic value of the indicators of bone tissue and design quality employed in their calculation in healthy men and pre- and post-menopausal women
(International Society of Musculoskeletal and Neuronal Interactions, 2014-11)
The pQCT-assessed Bone Strength Indices (BSI?s, SSI) depend on the product of a ?quality? indicator, the cortical vBMD (vCtD), and a ?design? indicator, one of the cross-sectional moments of inertia or related variables ...
Is there a relationship between diet quality and bone health in elderly women? A cross-sectional study
Objective: To evaluate whether there is a relationship between diet quality and bone health in a group of elderly Brazilian women. Methods: A cross-sectional study was performed with 105 elderly women. Participants were ...
Use of radiograph optical densitometry to monitor bone quality in broiler breeders
(Fundação APINCO de Ciência e Tecnologia Avícolas, 2006-03-01)
This study was carried out at Faculdade de Medicina Veterinária e Zootecnia, Universidade Estadual Paulista, Botucatu, SP, Brazil, and evaluated bone quality in broiler breeders. Twenty-three families of Ross broiler ...
The correlation of different methods for the assessment of bone quality in vivo: an observational study
Different methods for the assessment of bone quality were evaluated in this study. Sixty alveolar bone areas were investigated. Peri-apical and panoramic radiographs were obtained with an aluminium scale to assess optical ...
The influence of bone quality on the biomechanical behavior of full-arch implant-supported fixed prostheses
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-04-01)
We evaluated the influence of bone tissue type on stress distribution in full-arch implant-supported fixed prostheses using a three-dimensional finite element analysis. Stresses in cortical and trabecular bones were also ...
Influence of cyclosporin A on quality of bone around integrated dental implants: a radiographic study in rabbits
(Blackwell Publishing, 2007-02-01)
To evaluate the influence of cyclosporin A (CsA) administration on bone around integrated dental implants assessed by a bone quality index and by quantitative subtraction radiography.A total of 36 machine surface commercial ...
Effect of bone quality and bone loss level around internal and external connection implants: A finite element analysis study
Statement of problem: A consensus regarding the biomechanical effects of vertical bone loss in normal and osteoporotic bone tissue according to different implant-abutment interfaces is lacking. Purpose: The purpose of this ...
Mandibular bone loss after masticatory muscles intervention with botulinum toxin: An approach from basic research to clinical findings
(MDPI AG, 2019)
The injection of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT/A) in the masticatory muscles, to cause its temporary paralysis, is a widely used intervention for clinical disorders such as oromandibular dystonia, sleep bruxism, and aesthetics ...
