ABSTRACT

SUMMARY INTRODUCTION: Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (DI) is a polyuric and polydipsic syndrome and can have multiple causing factors. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 69-year-old woman with bipolar disorder medicated with lithium 400mg for 12 years on a daily basis. The patient was admitted, after psychiatric decompensation, with hypernatremia unresponsive to hypotonic iv fluids. The diagnosis of DI was made with high plasmatic osmolality measurement, low urine osmolality, and high levels of antidiuretic hormone. Full clinical recovery was possible with lithium suspension, hydration, and chlorthalidone. DISCUSSION: Although frequently used in the past, Lithium (Li) is nowadays rarely used in clinical practice for prolonged treatments because of its potentially devastating side effects. Clinicians must be aware of those side effects in order to prevent organ damage, mainly in patients with severe bipolar disease and precarious response to alternative treatments.


RESUMO INTRODUÇÃO: O diabetes insípido nefrogênico faz parte das síndromes poliúricas polidipsicas e pode ter múltiplos fatores causais. CASO CLÍNICO: Mulher de 69 anos, com doença bipolar medicada com lítio 400 mg por dia durante 12 anos. A doente foi internada, após descompensação da doença bipolar, por hipernatremia não responsiva a fluidoterapia hipotônica endovenosa. O diagnóstico de DI foi realizado com base na elevação da osmolaridade plasmática, baixa osmolaridade urinária e níveis elevados de hormona antidiurética. Verificou-se recuperação clínica completa com suspensão do lítio, hidratação e clorotalidona. DISCUSSÃO: Apesar do seu uso frequente no passado, o lítio (Li) é hoje em dia raramente utilizado na prática clínica por períodos prolongados pelos seus efeitos potencialmente devastadores. Os médicos devem ter em conta os potenciais efeitos secundários de forma a prevenir lesão de órgão em doentes com doença bipolar de difícil controle com outra terapêutica.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different commercial silanes on microshear bond strength of resin cement to lithium disilicate ceramic. Twenty ceramic samples with 10 mm in length, 10 mm wide and 3 mm in thickness were fabricated, etched with 10% hydrofluoric acid for 20 seconds, and divided into 5 groups, according to the commercial silane applied: G1- RelyX Ceramic Primer (3M ESPE), G2- Angelus Silane, G3- Prosil (FGM), G4- Dentsply Silane (Dentsply) and G5- Bis-Silane (Bisco). Silanes were applied in accordance to manufacturers' recommendations. Addition silicone molds with 1 mm in thickness, 10 mm in diameter and 3 perforations with 1 mm in diameter each one, were placed on ceramic and filled with the resin cement RelyX ARC (3M ESPE) in all groups. Light activation was performed with LED Bluephase G2 (Ivoclar Vivadent) at 1200 mW/cm2, for 30 seconds. Samples were maintained in 100% humidity at 37°C for 24 hours and submitted to microshear test. The data (MPa) were submitted to one-way ANOVA and Tukey test (α=0.05). The results obtained for each group were: G1: 22.39±2.99; G2: 23.35±4.08; G3: 26.05±5.46; G4: 18.56±4.09; G5: 25.26±4.10. Statistical analysis showed significantly lower microshear bond strength for G4. Fracture pattern analysis showed predominance of adhesive failures in G1 and G2. G3 and G5 presented higher percentage of cohesive failures in ceramic, and G4 showed mixed, adhesive and cohesive fractures with similar percentages. It was concluded that different silanes showed influence on the lithium disilicate ceramic ­ resin cement bond strength


O objetivo neste estudo foi avaliar o efeito de diferentes silanos comerciais na resistência de união ao microcisalhamento do cimento resinoso à cerâmica de dissilicato de lítio. Foram confeccionadas 20 amostras de cerâmica (10mm de comprimento, 10mm de largura e 3mm de espessura), condicionadas com ácido fluorídrico a 10% por 20 segundos e divididas em 5 grupos, de acordo com o silano aplicado: G1- RelyX Ceramic Primer (3M ESPE), G2- Silano Angelus, G3-Prosil (FGM), G4- Silano Dentsply e G5-Bis-Silane (Bisco). Matrizes de silicone por adição (1 mm de espessura, 10 mm de diâmetro e 3 perfurações com 1 mm de diâmetro) foram colocadas sobre a cerâmica e preenchidas com cimento resinoso RelyX ARC (3M ESPE). A fotoativação foi realizada com LED Bluephase G2 (Ivoclar Vivadent) a 1200 mW/cm2, por 30 segundos. As amostras foram mantidas em 100% de umidade a 37°C por 24 horas e submetidas ao teste de microcisalhamento. Os dados (MPa) (G1: 22,39+2,99; G2: 23,35+4,08; G3: 26,05+5,46; G4: 18,56+ 4,09; G5: 25,26+4,10) foram submetidos a análise de variância e ao teste de Tukey (p<0,05). A análise estatística mostrou valor de resistência de união significantemente menor para G4. A análise do padrão de fratura mostrou predominância de falha adesiva para G1 e G2. G3 e G5 apresentaram maior porcentagem de falha coesiva em cerâmica, e o G4 apresentou fraturas mista, adesiva e coesiva em igual porcentagem. Concluiu-se que os diferentes silanos apresentaram influência na resistência de união do cimento resinoso à cerâmica de dissilicato de lítio

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#Most studies have reported that suicide mortality rates are negatively associated with lithium levels in tap water; however, a few studies showed either no association or a positive association. Thus, the association between suicide mortality and lithium levels in tap water remains controversial. To clarify the association, our study evaluated the association between lithium levels in tap water and suicide mortality rates in Miyazaki Prefecture of Japan, after adjusting for confounding factors.@*METHODS@#We measured lithium levels in tap water across the 26 municipalities of Miyazaki Prefecture in Japan. We examined the standardized mortality ratio (SMR) for suicide in each municipality and used the data as the average suicide SMRs over 5 years (2009-2013). Weighted least-squares regression analysis, adjusted for the size of each municipality's population, was used to investigate the association between lithium levels in tap water and suicide SMRs. In addition to a crude model, in an adjusted model, potential confounding factors (proportion of elderly people, proportion of one-person households, annual marriage rate, annual mean income, unemployment rate, the density of medical doctors per 100,000 people, annual total rainfall, and proportion of people with a college education or higher) were added as covariates.@*RESULTS@#We showed that male and female suicide SMRs were not associated with lithium levels in tap water in Miyazaki Prefecture. After adjusting for confounders, male suicide SMRs were significantly and positively associated with the proportion of elderly people in the population and annual total rainfall, and female suicide SMRs were associated with the proportion of elderly people in the population.@*CONCLUSIONS@#No association between lithium levels in tap water and suicide mortality rates was found in Miyazaki Prefecture.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: To investigate the influence of crown material (lithium-disilicate, 3Y-TZP zirconia) and abutment type (rigid implant, resin tooth with artificial periodontium) on wear performance of their antagonist teeth and adjacent teeth.MATERIALS AND METHODS: A mandibular left first molar (#36) with adjacent human teeth (mandibular left second premolar: #35, mandibular left second molar: #37) and antagonistic human teeth (maxillary left second premolar: #25, maxillary left first molar: #26, maxillary left second molar: #27) was prepared simulating a section of the jaw. Samples were made with extracted human molars (Reference), crowned implants (Implant), or crowned resin tooth analogues (Tooth). Crowns (tooth #36; n = 16/material) were milled from lithium-disilicate (Li, IPS e.max CAD) or 3Y-TZP zirconia (Zr, IPS e.max ZirCAD, both Ivoclar Vivadent). Thermal cycling and mechanical loading (TCML) in the chewing simulator were applied simulating 15 years of clinical service. Wear traces were analyzed (frequency [n], depth [µm]) and evaluated using scanning electron pictures. Wear results were compared by one-way-ANOVA and post-hoc-Bonferroni (α = 0.05).RESULTS: After TCML, no visible wear traces were found on Zr. Li showed more wear traces (n = 30–31) than the reference (n = 21). Antagonistic teeth #26 showed more wear traces in contact to both ceramics (n = 27–29) than to the reference (n = 21). Strong wear traces (> 350 µm) on antagonists and their adjacent teeth were found only in crowned groups. Abutment type influenced number and depth of wear facets on the antagonistic and adjacent teeth.CONCLUSION: The clinically relevant model with human antagonistic and adjacent teeth allowed for a limited comparison of the wear situation. The total number of wear traces and strong wear on crowns, antagonistic and adjacent teeth were influenced by crown material.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate whether an animal model of mania induced by lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (LDX) has an inflammatory profile and whether immune activation by lipopolysaccharides (LPS) has a cumulative effect on subsequent stimuli in this model. We also evaluated the action of lithium (Li) on inflammatory and neurotrophic factors. Methods: Adult male Wistar rats were subjected to an animal model of mania. After the open-field test, they were given LPS to induce systemic immune activation. Subsequently, the animals' blood was collected, and their serum levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and inflammatory markers (tumor necrosis factor [TNF]-α, interleukin [IL]-6, IL-1β, IL-10, and inducible nitric oxide synthase [iNOS]) were measured. Results: LDX induced hyperactivity in the animals, but no inflammatory marker levels increased except brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Li had no effect on serum BDNF levels but prevented iNOS levels from increasing in animals subjected to immune activation. Conclusion: Although Li prevented an LPS-induced increase in serum iNOS levels, its potential anti-inflammatory effects in this animal model of mania were conflicting.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN La prescripción de carbonato de litio es común en la actividad psiquiátrica cotidiana. El objetivo es identificar las alteraciones endocrinas secundarias y sus bases fisiopatológicas. La revisión de la literatura se realizó en Psycinfo, EMBASE, PubMed y Scopus. Se efectuó una búsqueda computarizada de información utilizando la estrategia PICO. Las alteraciones más comunes están en riñones, tiroides, paratiroides, páncreas y vías neuroendocrinas. Los mecanismos fisiopatológicos subyacentes son diversos, y destacan la inhibición de la adenilato ciclasa tiroidea sensible a tirotropina como causa de hipotiroidismo, la expresión reducida de acuaporina 2 como causa de diabetes insípida nefrogénica, la pérdida del equilibrio iónico del calcio y la presencia de hiperparatiroidismo e hipercalcemia. En el eje hipotálamo-hipófiso-adrenal, se documenta una disminución en la producción de catecolaminas. Finalmente, se documenta la desregulación en el control de la glucemia al aumentar la resistencia a la insulina. Es necesario conocer estas eventualidades e identificarlas tempranamente a través de evaluaciones periódicas. Se propone un esquema de evaluación integral, sin que implique un algoritmo de tratamiento.


ABSTRACT The prescribing of Lithium is common in psychiatric clinical practice. The aim of this study was to identify the most common endocrine side effects associated with this drug and to clarify the pathophysiological basis. A systematic review was conducted in Psycinfo, Embase, PubMed, and Scopus. A computerised search for information was performed using a PICO (patient, intervention, comparative, outcomes) strategy. The main neuroendocrine alterations were reported in kidneys, thyroid and parathyroid glands, pancreas, and the communication pathways between the pituitary and adrenal glands. The pathophysiological mechanisms are diverse, and include the inhibition of the thyroid adenylate cyclase sensitive to the thyroid stimulant hormone (TSH) sensitive adenylate cyclase, which causes hypothyroidism. It also reduces the expression of aquaporin type 2, which is associated with nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, and the loss of the ionic balance of calcium that induces hyperparathyroidism and hypercalcaemia. Other considerations are related to alterations in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and a decrease in the production of catecholamines. Finally, another side-effect is the glycaemic dysregulation caused by the insulin resistance. Periodical clinical and para-clinical evaluations are necessary. The author proposes an evaluation scheme.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: O objetivo deste estudo foi verificar a capacidade do sistema de polimento para reduzir a rugosidade superficial de cerâmicas IPS e.max após acabamento com brocas diamantadas. Métodos: Dez corpos de prova foram confeccionados a partir de blocos de cerâmica de dissilicato de lítio, cristalizados e glazeados (Grupo G1) antes de serem submetidos a leitura com rugosímetro portátil em três pontos diferentes. Foi simulado ajuste oclusal com brocas diamantadas cilíndricas de granulação fina (Grupo G2) e feita uma nova leitura antes de realizar a sequência de polimento com o Kit EVE Diapol H8 (Grupo G3), constituído de três discos de borrachas abrasivas de granulações decrescentes. Após análise da rugosidade superficial do último grupo, as médias das três medições foram submetidas à análise estatística ANOVA e ao teste Tukey com o nível de significância 5%. Resultados:A análise dos dados obtidos revelou diferença estatisticamente significativa entre os três grupos, sendo que no Grupo G2 a rugosidade foi maior que no Grupo G1, que por sua vez foi maior que no Grupo G3. Conclusão: Concluiu-se que o sistema de polimento EVE Diapol H8 reduziu efetivamente a rugosidade superficial após acabamento com brocas diamantadas e proporcionou uma lisura superficial superior àquela dada pelo glaze. (AU)


Aim: This study sought to verify the ability of the polishing system to reduce the surface roughness of IPS E.max ceramics after finishing with diamond drills. Methods:Ten specimens were made from lithium disilicate ceramic blocks, crystallized, and glazed (Group G1) before being subjected to reading with a portable rugosimeter at three different points. Occlusal adjustment was simulated with fine-grained cylindrical diamond burs (Group G2) and re-read before performing the polishing sequence with the EVE Diapol H8 Kit (Group G3), consisting of three rubber diamond discs with decreasing granulations. After analyzing the surface roughness of the last group, the means of the three measurements were submitted to ANOVA statistical analysis and to the Tukey test with a significance level of 5%. Results: The analysis of the data revealed a statistically significant difference between the three groups, with the roughness in the G2 Group being greater than that in the G1 Group, which in turn was greater than that in the G3 Group. Conclusion: It was therefore concluded that the EVE Diapol H8 polishing system effectively reduced surface roughness after finishing with diamond drills and provided a surface smoothness that is superior to that given by the glaze.

ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to compare recommendations of the Korean Medication Algorithm Project for Bipolar Disorder 2018 (KMAP-BP 2018) with other recently published guidelines for treating bipolar disorder. We reviewed a total of five recently published global treatment guidelines and compared treatment recommendation of the KMAP-BP 2018 with those of other guidelines. For initial treatment of mania, there were no significant differences across treatment guidelines. All guidelines recommended mood stabilizer (MS) or atypical antipsychotic (AAP) monotherapy or a combination of an MS with an AAP as a first-line treatment strategy for mania. However, the KMAP-BP 2018 did not prefer monotherapy with MS or AAP for psychotic mania. Quetiapine, olanzapine and aripiprazole were the first-line AAPs for nearly all phases of bipolar disorder across guidelines. Most guidelines advocated newer AAPs as first-line treatment options for all phases while lamotrigine was recommended for depressive and maintenance phases. Lithium and valproic acid were commonly used as MSs in all phases of bipolar disorder. As research evidence accumulated over time, recommendations of newer AAPs (such as asenapine, cariprazine, paliperidone, lurasidine, long-acting injectable risperidone and aripiprazole once monthly) became prominent. KMAP-BP 2018 guidelines were similar to other guidelines, reflecting current changes in prescription patterns for bipolar disorder based on accumulated research data. Strong preference for combination therapy was characteristic of KMAP-BP 2018, predominantly in the treatment of psychotic mania and severe depression. Further studies were needed to address several issues identified in our review.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: Although, accumulating evidence is delineating a neuroprotective and neurotrophic role for lithium (Li), inconsistent findings have also been reported in human studies especially. Moreover, the effects of Li infusion into the hippocampus are still unknown. The aims of this work were (a) to assess whether basal synaptic activity and long-term potentiation (LTP) in the hippocampus are different in regard to intrahippocampal Li infusion; (b) to assess spatial learning and memory in rats chronically treated with LiCO₃ in the Morris water maze. METHODS: Field potentials were recorded form the dentate gyrus, stimulating perforant pathways, in rats chronically (20 mg/kg for 40 days) or acutely treated with LiCO₃ and their corresponding control rats. In addition, performance of rats in a Morris water maze was measured to link behaviour of rats to electrophysiological findings. RESULTS: LiCO₃ infusion into the hippocampus resulted in enhanced LTP, especially in the late phases, but attenuated LTP was observed in rats chronically treated with Li as compared to controls. Li-treated rats equally performed a spatial learning task, but did spend less time in target quadrant than saline-treated rats in Morris water maze. CONCLUSION: Despite most data suggest that Li always yields neuroprotective effects against neuropathological conditions; we concluded that a 40-day treatment of Li disrupts hippocampal synaptic plasticity underlying memory processes, and that these effects of prolonged treatment are not associated with its direct chemical effect, but are likely to be associated with the molecular actions of Li at genetic levels, because its short-term effect preserves synaptic plasticity.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: Previous studies have revealed inconsistent results on amygdala volume in adult bipolar disorder (BD) patients compared to healthy controls (HC). Since the amygdala encompasses multiple subregions, the subtle volume changes in each amygdala nucleus might have not been fully reflected in the measure of the total amygdala volume, causing discrepant results. Thus, we aimed to investigate volume changes in each amygdala subregion and their association with subtypes of BD, lithium use and clinical status of BD. METHODS: Fifty-five BD patients and 55 HC underwent T1-weighted structural magnetic resonance imaging. We analyzed volumes of the whole amygdala and each amygdala subregion, including the anterior amygdaloid area, cortico-amygdaloid transition area, basal, lateral, accessory basal, central, cortical, medial and paralaminar nuclei using the atlas in the FreeSurfer. The volume difference was analyzed using a one-way analysis of covariance with individual volumes as dependent variables, and age, sex, and total intracranial volume as covariates. RESULTS: The volumes of whole right amygdala and subregions including basal nucleus, accessory basal nucleus, anterior amygdaloid area, and cortico-amygdaloid transition area in the right amygdala of BD patients were significantly smaller for the HC group. No significant volume difference between bipolar I disorder and bipolar II disorder was found after the Bonferroni correction. The trend of larger volume in medial nucleus with lithium treatment was not significant after the Bonferroni correction. No significant correlation between illness duration and amygdala volume, and insignificant negative correlation were found between right central nucleus volume and depression severity. CONCLUSIONS: Significant volume decrements of the whole amygdala, basal nucleus, accessory basal nucleus, anterior amygdaloid area, and cortico-amygdaloid transition area were found in the right hemisphere in adult BD patients, compared to HC group. We postulate that such volume changes are associated with altered functional activity and connectivity of amygdala nuclei in BD.

ABSTRACT

A sensitive and simple liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method was developed and validated for the simultaneous quantification of ticagrelor and its active metabolite, AR-C124910XX from 50 µL human plasma using tolbutamide as an internal standard as per regulatory guidelines. Analytes in plasma were extracted by simple protein precipitation using acetonitrile, followed by chromatographic separation with an Acclaim™ RSLC 120 C₁₈ column (2.2 µm, 2.1 × 100 mm) and a gradient acetonitrile-water mobile phase containing 0.1% formic acid within 8 min. Mass spectrometric detection and quantitation were conducted by selected reaction-monitoring on a negative electrospray ionization mode with the following transitions: m/z 521.11 → 361.10, 477.03 → 361.10, and 269.00 → 169.60 for ticagrelor, AR-C124910XX, and tolbutamide, respectively. The lower limit of quantifications was 0.2 ng/mL with linear ranges of 0.2–2,500 ng/mL (r² ≥ 0.9949) for both analytes. All validation data, including selectivity, cross-talk, precision, accuracy, matrix effect, recovery, dilution integrity, stability, and incurred sample reanalysis, were well within acceptable limits. This assay method was validated using K₂-EDTA as the specific anticoagulant. Also, the anticoagulant effect was tested by lithium heparin, sodium heparin, and K₃-EDTA. No relevant anticoagulant effect was observed. This validated method was effectively used in the determination of ticagrelor and its active metabolite, AR-C124910XX, in plasma samples from patients with myocardial infarction.

ABSTRACT

O desempenho das cerâmicas odontológicas é um aspecto bastante explorado na literatura, uma vez que o aprimoramento das suas características permite desenvolver materiais com maior longevidade. Trincas, delaminações, lascamentos e fraturas catastróficas são as falhas mais encontradas em restaurações cerâmicas. O objetivo dessa pesquisa foi conhecer o comportamento mecânico de coroas monolíticas gradadas e avaliar a possibilidade de produzir uma vitrocerâmica experimental a base de dissilicato de lítio com gradiente funcional de porosidade. Este trabalho foi dividido em duas partes: a primeira, teórico/computacional e a segunda, a fabricação do produto. 1) Através de software CAD foi modelado um molar inferior com preparo tradicional para coroa total e uma coroa total monolítica com camada de cimento resinoso entreposto. Quatro grupos foram compostos pela variação da composição das coroas totais: Coroa rígida (E=80 GPa), flexível (E=30 GPa), gradação bioinspirada (de 80 até 30 GPa) e gradação inversa (de 30 até 80 GPa). O modelo foi exportado para o software de análise. Os materiais foram considerados isotrópicos, linearmente elásticos e homogêneos, com contatos ideais. Uma força de 300N foi aplicada na face oclusal, a base do modelo foi fixada em todas as direções. A tensão máxima principal, tensão de Von-Mises e deslocamento foram utilizadas para observar o comportamento mecânico. 2) Uma mistura de óxidos foi homogeneizada e submetida à fusão. As fritas obtidas por resfriamento foram moídas e passaram por diferentes tratamentos térmicos, seguido das análises de DSC e DRX. Seis grupos experimentais foram obtidos: DL-E (vitrocerâmica densa a base de dissilicato de lítio simulando esmalte); DL-D (vitrocerâmica densa a base de dissilicato de lítio simulando dentina); DLGrad (vitrocerâmica gradada a base de dissilicato de lítio); YTZP-E (vitrocerâmica densa reforçada por YTZP simulando esmalte); YTZP-D (vitrocerâmica densa reforçada por YTZP simulando dentina); YGrad (vitrocerâmica gradada reforçada por YTZP). Suspensões aquosas contendo 23 e 30%-vol. de pó de vidro foram preparadas e submetidos à técnica de gel casting para formar um gradiente funcional. As vitrocerâmicas com e sem gradiente funcional de porosidade foram caracterizadas pelas técnicas de DRX, FEG, densidade e porosidade aparentes. Também foram realizados ensaios mecânicos de resistência à flexão biaxial e fractografia. Os resultados obtidos foram estatisticamente avaliados por Anova 1 fator e Tukey (p<0,05). As micrografias mostraram formação de gradiente funcional de porosidade apenas nas vitrocerâmicasa base de dissilicato de lítio. Não houve diferença entre as densidades de todos as vitrocerâmicas estudadas, porém YTZP-E, YTZP-D e YTZP-Grad apresentaram porosidade 10% maior do que as vitrocerâmicassem zircônia. Os defeitos críticos na superfície das vitrocerâmicas são semelhantes em todas condições estudadas, porém a aleatoriedade de poros internos das vitrocerâmicas contendo YTZP proporcionaram diminuição da resistência à flexão, com diferença estatisticamente significante em relação às vitrocerâmicas sem YTZP. Entre as vitrocerâmicas densas e gradadas não houve diferença na resistência à flexão. Conclui-se que a adição de zircônia em sistema a base de SiO2-Li2O alterou a temperatura de sinterização, o padrão de porosidade, a resistência flexural e comprometeu a formação do gradiente funcional de porosidade. O comportamento mecânico das vitrocerâmicas à base de dissilicato de lítio densas e gradadas são similares(AU)


The performance of dental ceramics is very explorated at literature, once the enhancement of yours features allow the development of materials with higher longevity. Cracks, delamination, chipping and catastrophic fracture are the faillures most finds at ceramics restorations. The aim of this research was knew the mechanical behavior of monolithics graded crows and it was evaluated the possibility to produce a glass ceramic based of lithium disilicate with gradient of porosity. This research was divided into two parts: the first one, theoretical computational and the second, the manufacturing product. 1) Using a CAD software, a lower molar received a full-crown preparation. The monolithic crown was modeled with a resin cement layer of 0.1 mm. Four groups were distributed according to the full crown elastic modulus (E):(a)Bioinspired crown with regressive elastic gradation (from 80 to 30 GPa); (b) Crown with regressive elastic gradation (from 30 to 80 GPa); (c) Rigid crowns and (d) Flexible crown. The model was exported to the analysis software and meshed into 385,240 tetrahedral elements and 696,310 nodes. Materials were considered isotropic, linearly elastic, and homogeneous, with ideal contacts. A 300-N load was applied at the occlusal surface and the base of the model was fixed in all directions. The results were required in Maximum principal stress, Von-Mises Stress and Displacement. 2) A mixture of oxides was homogenized and it was melted at fusion. The glass frits get by cooling were grinded and passed through heat treatment accordin to CSD and RXD. Six groups were obtained: DL-E (glass ceramic dense based of lithium disilicate simulating enamel); DL-D (glass ceramic dense based of lithium disilicate simulating dentin); DL-Grad (glass ceramic graded based of lithium disilicate); YTZP-E (glass ceramic dense reforced by YTZP simulating enamel); YTZP-D (glass ceramic dense reforced by YTZP simulating dentin); YTZP-Grad (glass ceramic graded and reforced by YTZP). Twenty-three and 40% of glass powder were prepared through dispersion water and it was submitted for techinique of gel casting to form functional gradient. The samples with and without functional gradient of porosity were characterized by RXD, FEG, density of all the groups, however YTZP-E, YTZP-D and YTZP-Grad showed porosity 10% greater the groups without zirconia. The critical flaw at surface of the ceramics were similar to the groups, however the random of internal pores at groups with YTZP get the flexural strength lower, with statistical difference with the groups without YTZP. Among the dense and graded groups were not statistical differences at flexural strength. It concluded that add of zirconia at ceramic system based of SiO2-Li2O changed the temperature of sintering, the standard of porosity, flexural strength and compromised the development of functional gradient of porosity. The mechanical behavior of ceramics based at lithium disilicate dense and graded were similar(AU)

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of lithium disilicate ceramic pressed zirconia prostheses and monolithic zirconia prostheses and to investigate the complications after two years of follow-up in posterior edentulous site. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total 17 patients (male: 12, female: 5) were treated with 60 posterior fixed implant-supported prostheses (LP. lithium disilicate ceramic pressed zirconia prostheses: n = 30, MZ. monolithic zirconia prostheses: n = 30). After 24-month, clinical examination of Implant survival rate, marginal bone resorption, probing depth, plaque index, bleeding index, calculus and complications were evaluated. RESULTS: There were no failed implants and all implants were normal in function without mobility. Marginal bone resorption was lower in LP group than MZ group at 12-month (P < .05), and 12-month probing depth and calculus deposit in LP group were significantly higher than MZ group (P < .05). Most common complications in MZ were marginal bone resorptions more than 1.5.mm and 2 chipping occurred in LP group. CONCLUSION: Within the limitations of the present study, lithium disilicate ceramic pressed zirconia is considered as a predictable treatment option as much as monolithic zirconia in posterior fixed implant-supported prostheses.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: To determine wear amount of single molar crowns, made from four different restoratives, and opposing natural teeth through computerized fabrication techniques using 3D image alignment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 24 single crowns (N = 24 patients, age range: 18 – 50) were made from lithium disilicate (IPS E-max CAD), lithium silicate and zirconia based (Vita Suprinity CAD), resin matrix ceramic material (Cerasmart, GC), and dual matrix (Vita Enamic CAD) blocks. After digital impressions (Cerec 3D Bluecam, DentsplySirona), the crowns were designed and manufactured (Cerec 3, DentsplySirona). A dual-curing resin cement was used for cementation (Variolink Esthetic DC, Ivoclar). Then, measurement and recording of crowns and the opposing enamel surfaces with the intraoral scanner were made as well as at the third and sixth month follow-ups. All measurements were superimposed with a software (David-Laserscanner, V3.10.4). Volume loss due to wear was calculated from baseline to follow-up periods with Siemens Unigraphics NX 10 software. Statistical analysis was accomplished by Repeated Measures for ANOVA (SPSS 21) at = .05 significance level. RESULTS: After 6 months, insignificant differences of the glass matrix and resin matrix materials for restoration/enamel wear were observed (P>.05). While there were no significant differences between the glass matrix groups (P>.05), significant differences between the resin matrix group materials (P<.05) were obtained. Although Cerasmart and Enamic were both resin matrix based, they exhibited different wear characteristics. CONCLUSION: Glass matrix materials showed less wear both on their own and opposing enamel surfaces than resin matrix ceramic materials.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: To investigate and compare the surface roughness (SR), weight and height of monolithic zirconia (MZ), ceramometal (CM), lithium disilicate glass ceramic (LD), composite resin (CR), and their antagonistic human teeth enamel. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 32 disc shaped specimens for the four test materials (n=8) and 32 premolars were prepared and randomly divided. SR, weight and height of the materials and the antagonist enamel were recorded before and after subjecting the specimens to 240,000 wear-cycles (49 N/0.8 Hz/5℃/50℃). SR, height, weight, and digital microscopic qualitative evaluation were measured. RESULTS: CM (0.23 + 0.08 µm) and LD (0.68 + 0.16 µm) exhibited the least and highest mean difference in the SR, respectively. ANOVA revealed significance (P=.001) between the materials for the SR. Paired T-Test showed significance (P < .05) for the pre- and post-SR for all the materials. For the antagonistic enamel, no significance (P=.987) was found between the groups. However, the pre- and post-SR values of all the enamel groups were significant (P < .05). Wear cycles had significant effect on enamel weight loss against all the materials (P < .05). CR and MZ showed the lowest and highest height loss of 0.14 mm and 0.46 mm, respectively. CONCLUSION: MZ and CM are more resistant to SR against the enamel than LD and CR. Enamel worn against test materials showed similar SR. Significant variations in SR values for the tested materials (MZ, LD, CM, and CR) against the enamel were found. Wear simulation significantly affected the enamel weight loss against all the materials, and enamel antagonist against MZ and CM showed more height loss.
