Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are biomaterials widely investigated for tissue-engineering applications. In this regard, we describe a method to prepare fibers of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHBV) by a wet-spinning technique. Polymer fibers were used to test the cytocompatibility of the material in vitro. We have investigated their behavior in vitro in presence of the osteoblast-like (SaOs2) and macrophage (J774.2) cell lines. The PHBV fibers used were 100-200μm in diameter and offered a large surface for cell adhesion, similar to that they encounter when apposed onto a bone trabeculae...

The 6p terminal deletions are rare and usually early diagnosed because of their association with eye and cranio-facial anomalies, particularly as part of Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome in relation with the haploinsufficiency of FOXC1 gene. Deletions in the 22q11 region are frequent, highly correlated with DiGeorge syndrome also named CATCH22, and may be associated with many clinical features of various severities. We report a 31-year-old man with an unbalanced 45,XY,der(6)t(6;22)(p25;q11.2),-22 karyotype leading to monosomies in both 6p25 and 22q11 regions, confirmed by FISH and array-CGH...

The lateral nasal wall attaches the nasal turbinates, which could be, either pneumatized, or paradoxically curved. The turbinate pneumatization-concha bullosausually indicates the pneumatization of the middle turbinate. However, concha bullosasuperior (CBS) is also, although rare, anatomic possibility of variation. We report here a case of unilateral giant septated CBS, which was not, to our knowledge, previously reported. The case was documented in Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). Subtle pneumatizations of inferior turbinates were found bilateral, as also were the middle conchae bullosae...

Microscopy techniques are widely used in life sciences to study cells and tissues. Fluorescence microscopy, for example, is a very common method in many laboratories. While reliable and strong fluorescence signals are a clear advantage of this method, the labelling procedure with fluorescent dyes, the availability of required antibodies or the potentially necessary genetic modifications of the studied organism all introduce potential complications. By contrast, confocal Raman microscopy is a label-free and non-destructive imaging technique...

CFTR protein regulates electrolyte and fluid transport in almost all tissues with exocrine function, including male reproductive tract. Mutation of CFTR gene causes cystic fibrosis (CF), which affects the function of several organs, and impairs male fertility. The role of CFTR protein in different compartments of male reproductive tract (testis, epididymis, sperm) as well as an impact of CFTR mutation(s) on male fertility phenotype is discussed in relation with the choice of optimal technique for Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) management...

Metal implants are biomaterials widely used in orthopedics. They are both used in osteosynthesis and arthroplasty. Their mechanical properties, biocompatibility and resistance to corrosion make them a widely used option in orthopedics. Alloys are the most commonly used metals in orthopedics. As far as physical traumas are concerned, implants such as screws, plates and/or nails are used for osteosynthesis as they ensure the stability of the fractured area and contribute to bone healing. Prostheses are used in arthroplasty to restore joint function for as long as possible...

The origin of the mammalian middle ear ossicles from mandibular and hyoid pharyngeal arches remains controversial and discussed. Two adverse theories are proposed. The first claims that malleus and incus derive from the Meckel's cartilage of the mandibular arch, and stapes from Reichert's cartilage of the hyoid arch. The second postulates that handle of malleus and long process of the incus are derived from the second arch as well as the stapes. Contradictory analyses support alternatively each theory without any experimental evidence...

Variations in the branching pattern of the mandibular nerve frequently accounts for failure to obtain adequate local anesthesia in routine oral and dental procedures, and also for unexpected injury to the nerves during surgery. The knowledge of the neurovascular relationships of the infratemporal region is relevant in odontostomatology practice. In this article we present a rare case of atypical communication between the inferior alveolar nerve and lingual nerve and the mylohyoid and lingual nerves. Further, the clinical implications of these communications on the development of the supplementary innervation and their possible role in anesthesia is discussed in detail...

The inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) is a sensitive branch of the trigeminal nerve. It has an intra-bone path in the mandible, inside the mandibular canal, where it is accompanied by lymph, venous and arterial vessels. We have studied the mandibular canal in human mandibles and in some laboratory animals (mice, rats, rabbits and cats). Microcomputed tomography evidenced that the walls of the canal are made with thin plates of trabecular bone with numerous fenestrations. This aspect is evidenced in dentate subjects and become more evident in edentulous subjects with atrophy of the alveolar bone...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder resulting with many different complications including soft tissue abnormalities in the oral cavity such as periodontitis and salivary and taste dysfunction. Previous studies also reported fungal and bacterial infections in oral cavity in these patients. This study aims to represent three dimentional morphologic ultrastructural changes of the diabetic rat tongue via scanning electron microscopy. Twenty-four (24) adult male Spraque-Dawley rats, (weight ranging between 200-250g) included in the study were randomly assigned into two groups: control rats were injected with intraperitoneally saline alone, experimental diabetes group received streptozotocin (STZ) (80mg/kg) administrated intraperitoneally...
