Dentin pretreatment with Er:YAG laser and sodium ascorbate to improve the bond strength of glass fiber post.

Lasers Med Sci 2019 Feb 9;34(1):47-54. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

School of Dentistry of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, Av. Café s/n, Monte Alegre, CEP 14040-904, Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.

Root-filled teeth that received fiber posts most frequently fail at the adhesive interface between resin cement and dentin. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of Er:YAG laser and/or sodium ascorbate (SA) on bond strength, microhardness of dentin, and penetration depth of cement into dentinal tubules. Forty-eight bovine incisor roots were endodontically treated, post spaces were prepared and equally divided into four groups (n = 12): G1-distilled water (control); G2-10% SA (10 min); G3-Er:YAG laser (150 mJ/4 Hz/40 s), and G4-Er:YAG laser + 10% SA.

Predicting live birth for poor ovarian responders: the PROsPeR concept.

Reprod Biomed Online 2018 Jul 29;37(1):43-52. Epub 2018 Mar 29.

The Fertility Clinic, Skive Regional Hospital, Resenvej 25, 7800 Skive, Denmark; Faculty of Health, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark.

Research Question: A number of live-birth predictive models are available, and despite clinical interest these are rarely used owing to poor performance. In addition, no predictive models specifically for poor ovarian responders (POR) are available. The aim of the current project was to develop a clinically applicable tool for predicting live birth for PORs receiving recombinant human FSH [r-hFSH]. Read More
