Introduction: In recent years injection of autologous blood into the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) has been reintroduced as a treatment of chronic recurrent TMJ dislocation. The effects of this treatment on components of the TMJ is not fully understood. The purpose of this article is to evaluate the effects of autologous blood on TMJ capsule and the retrodiscal ligament. Material and methods: A total of 16 healthy adult country bred pig were used in this study. Autologous blood were injected into the upper joint space (4 ml) and around the capsule of TMJ unilaterally (1 ml). This procedure was then repeated on the opposite side only by using 5 ml of 0.9% saline. TMJ capsules and retrodiscal ligaments were examined four weeks following the injections. Results: Histological examination of TMJs injected with autologous blood revealed fibrotic changes in 81.25% of the retrodiscal ligaments and 56.25% of the capsular areas. Whilst no changes were seen in the retrodiscal ligaments nor in the capsules of TMJs injected with saline alone. Conclusion: There is little published clinical data on the use of autologous blood injection and as such the mechanism of action is still unclear. The rate of induction of fibrosis within the retrodiscal ligaments in this study were similar to previously reported studies and case series. However, further studies to evaluate the mechanism of this safe and simple technique are needed. © 2012 European Association for Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

Sexuality and Disability | Year: 2010

There is not enough information about beliefs and attitudes of the nursing students regarding giving sexual counseling to the patients. This study examined the validity and reliability of the Turkish Sexual Attitudes and Belief Survey, to determine barriers and their possible causes that affect evaluation of the sexual problems that occur because of illnesses or treatments of patients. The Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficient of the survey and re-test text correlation value was found as 0.73 and 0.90, respectively (P < 0.05). Turkish version of the Sexual Attitudes and Belief Survey is a valid and reliable scale to evaluate nursing students' beliefs and attitudes that affect giving sexual counseling to the patients. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

Oral health and dental management | Year: 2012

"Kissing" or "rosetting" of molars refers to contacting occlusal surfaces of impacted permanent mandibular second, third, and, very rarely, fourth molars. It is a rare phenomenon. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence, dental involvement type, associated pathologies and treatment outcomes of kissing molars in all patients who underwent lower third molar surgery between March 2008 and October 2011, at a military hospital in Turkey. The panoramic radiographs of the patients who underwent extraction of lower third molars at Marmara University Faculty of Dentistry, Gulhane Military Medical Academy and Surgical Infirmary at Commando Troop No. 5 Gokceada between March 2008 and October 2011 were analysed retrospectively. The patients found to have kissing molars (KM), were classified according to the teeth involved and associated pathologies were evaluated. Among nine patients (five female, four male) with a mean age of 27.4 years who were found to have KM, one presented with rosetting of first and second lower molars (Class I), six with rosetting of second and third lower molars (Class II), and two with rosetting of lower third and fourth molars (Class III). Three of the KM presented with dentigerous cyst formation and two with granulamatous changes of the adjacent dental follicle. Following surgical removal, three patients presented with mild paraesthesia of the lower lip, which resolved 3 to 6 months after the operation. KM is a rare phenomenon. Early surgical therapy is essential as this condition can cause serious complications, including formation of pathologies such as dentigerous cyst or destruction of the adjacent bone.
