The osteotome technique: Part 3--Less invasive methods of elevating the sinus floor

, : The osteotome technique: Part 3--Less invasive methods of elevating the sinus floor. Compendium 15(6): 698, 700, 702-4 Passim; Quiz 710

Previous articles in The Compendium (February 1994, April 1994) described the features of the osteotome technique. In the initial article, a procedure that uses osteotomes to elevate the floor of the sinus, called the osteotome sinus floor elevation (OSFE), was mentioned. This article provides details and case reports on the OSFE. An enhanced version of the OSFE in which bone is added to the osteotomy will also be presented. The author concludes that the OSFE and the bone-added OSFE techniques are suitable means of altering the floor of the sinus so that in many patients, longer implants can be inserted in a less invasive manner.

Resistance of the blowfly, Lucilia cuprina, to organophosphorus (OP) insecticides is due to mutations in LcalphaE7, the gene encoding carboxylesterase E3, that enhance the enzyme's ability to hydrolyse insecticides. Two mutations occur natura...

The serum binding of methotrexate was determined by equilibrium dialysis using radiolabelled methotrexate. Methotrexate was only albumin-bound in serum. The binding was 46% in controls versus 42% in rheumatoid arthritis and 44% in cancer. Serum bi...
