Background: The dimension of maxillary sinus is dynamic and might complicate the dental practice. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to analyze maxillary sinus dimension with respect to different ages, genders, tooth sites, and relationships between root of posterior maxillary teeth (RPMT) and adjacent maxillary sinus floor, using cross-sectio...
Article
Purpose: Citation-based metrics, such as the H-classics method, have been used as an indicator to assess academic performance in the scientific community. However, information addressing issues regarding self-citation, citation half-life, and subject area of origin in implant dentistry is lacking. The purpose of this study was to investigate the c...

In terms of a novel scaffold with well osteoinductive and osteoconductive capacity, melatonin (Mel) possesses positive effects on chemical linkage in scaffold structures, which may allow osteogenic differentiation. The aim of this study is to fabricate Mel-loaded chitosan (CS) microparticles (MPs) as a novel bone substitute through generating a Mel...
Article
Background The TomoFix plate has been extensively used in high tibial osteotomy surgery to stabilize the distracted tibial bones. However, distal pain related to plate irritation was considered one of the most relevant complications for this fixation device. This study aimed to correlate reports of distal pain with the profiles of the distracted ti...

Background: Effective treatment of low back pain (LBP) originating in the lumbar and sacroiliac joints is difficult to achieve. The objective of the current study was to compare the clinical effectiveness of radiofrequency (RF) neurotomy versus conservative nonsurgical approaches for the management of chronic lumbar and sacroiliac joint pain. Met...
Article
Introduction: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of C-shaped canal configurations (CSs) and radicular grooves (RGs) in permanent mandibular first premolars (MPs) and to investigate the relevance of such complexities with the presence of distolingual roots (DLRs) in permanent mandibular first molars (MMs). Methods: A total of 8...
Article
Background Various surgical techniques are available to reduce chronic instability of the lateral ankle ligament complex. The most effective method for these procedures remains controversial. This report presents a surgical technique that is similar to the Broström procedure and uses a modified, nonaugmented repair technique. Materials and Methods...
Article
Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of complicated root canals in permanent mandibular central incisors (PMCIs) and its correlation with the presence of a distolingual root (DLR) in permanent mandibular first molars (PMFMs) using cone-beam computed tomographic imaging in a Taiwanese population. Methods: A total of 40...
Article

Background and objectives: This study is a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials comparing the efficacy of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to a control and to other nerve stimulation therapies (NSTs) for the treatment of chronic back pain. Methods: Citations were identified in MEDLINE, the Cochrane Library, Google Scho...
Article
Background: Current bibliometric analyses of the evolving trends in research scope category across different time periods using the H-classics method in implantology are considerably limited. Objective: The purpose of this study was to identify the classic articles in implantology to analyze bibliometric characteristics and associated factors in...
Article
Purpose: To identify 100 top-cited articles published in periodontal journals and analyse the research trends by using citation analysis. Materials and methods: 100 top-cited articles published in periodontal journals were retrieved by searching the database of the ISI Web of Science and Journal Citation reports. For each article, the following...

Recent advances in tissue engineering have led to potential new strategies, especially decellularization protocols from natural tissues, for the repair, replacement, and regeneration of intervertebral discs. This study aimed to validate our previously reported method for the decellularization of annulus fibrosus (AF) tissue and to quantify potentia...
Article
Objectives: Chronic periodontitis is a bone destructive inflammatory disease with an adverse impact on general health and suggested underlying factors in common with osteoporosis. A few studies have examined the possible relationship between chronic periodontitis and osteoporosis; however, the results remain inconclusive. This longitudinal follow-...
Article
Several plate systems for high tibial osteotomy (HTO) have been developed to stabilize the opening wedge of an osteotomized tibia. Among them, the TomoFix system, having a quasi-straight and T-shaped design, has been widely adopted in the literature. However, this system is implemented by inserting a lag (i.e., cortical) screw through the proximal...
Article
Experimental and numerical methods have been extensively used to simulate the lumbar kinematics and mechanics. One of the basic parameters is the lumbar loads. In the literature, both concentrated and distributed loads have been assumed to simulate the in vivo lumbar loads. However, the inconsistent loads between those studies exist and make the co...
