Zygomatic Implants: Optimization and Innovation

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Zygomatic Implants: Optimization and Innovation
Mar 312020
 

This book provides clinicians with state of the art information on the use of zygomatic implants to restore function and improve quality of life. International experts come together to showcase important innovations and advances in techniques that will assist in the optimization of outcomes. Readers will find information on indications, biomechanics, the role of imaging, digital treatment planning, and all aspects of implant placement. Individual chapters are devoted to different procedures, including the extramaxillary surgical technique, extended sinus lift with retained bone window, the anatomy-guided approach, the quad zygoma technique, and static and dynamic guided surgery. The use of zygomatic implants specifically in oncology patients is also given detailed consideration. Today, the zygomatic approach offers many advantages for patients with severe maxillary resorption, in whom grafting was in the past unavoidable. In providing an up-to-date global perspective on the zygoma concept, this book will be an invaluable source of guidance for practitioners at all levels of experience.

Tissue Mechanics

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Tissue Mechanics
Mar 312020
 

The structures of living tissues are continually changing due to growth and response to the tissue environment, including the mechanical environment. Tissue Mechanics is an in-depth look at the mechanics of tissues. Tissue Mechanics describes the nature of the composite components of a tissue, the cellular processes that produce these constituents, the assembly of the constituents into a hierarchical structure, and the behavior of the tissue’s composite structure in the adaptation to its mechanical environment. Organized as a textbook for the student needing to acquire the core competencies, Tissue Mechanics will meet the demands of advanced undergraduate or graduate coursework in Biomedical Engineering, as well as, Chemical, Civil, and Mechanical Engineering.   Key features: Detailed Illustrations Example problems, including problems at the end of sections A separate solutions manual available for course instructors A website (http://tissue-mechanics.com/) that has been established to provide supplemental material for the book, including downloadable additional chapters on specific tissues, downloadable PowerPoint presentations of all the book’s chapters, and additional exercises and examples for the existing chapters. About the Authors: Stephen C.

Mathematical Models for Dental Materials Research

 Dentistry  Comments Off on Mathematical Models for Dental Materials Research
Mar 302020
 

This book presents a mechanistic approach―mathematical modeling―for carrying out dental materials research. This approach allows researchers to go beyond the null hypothesis and obtain a solution that is more general and therefore predictive for conditions other than those considered in a study. Hence it can be used either on its own or to complement the commonly used statistical approach.
Through a series of practical problems with wide-ranging application, the reader will be guided on:
How to construct a mathematical model for the behavior of dental materials by making informed assumptions of the physical, chemical, or mechanical situation
How to simplify the model by making suitable simplifications
How to calibrate the model by calculating the values of key parameters using experimental results
How to refine the model when there are discrepancies between predictions and experiments
Only elementary calculus is required to follow the examples and all the problems can be solved by using MS Excel© spreadsheets.
This is an ideal book for dental materials researchers without a strong mathematical background who are interested in applying a more mechanistic approach to their research to give deeper insight into the problem at hand.
Advance praise for Mathematical Models for Dental Materials Research:
“This is a nice addition for research students on how to conduct their work and how to manage data analysis. It brings together a number of important aspects of dental materials investigations which has been missing in the literature. The practical examples make it much easier to understand.” – Michael F. Burrow, Clinical Professor in Prosthodontics, The University of Hong Kong
“The great strengths of this volume are the real world examples of dental materials research in the successive chapters. In turn, this is an outcome of the outstanding expertise of both authors. I warmly recommend this book to the dental biomaterials community worldwide.” – David C. Watts, Professor of Biomaterials Science, University of Manchester, UK

Dynamics of Immune Activation in Viral Diseases

 Immunology  Comments Off on Dynamics of Immune Activation in Viral Diseases
Mar 302020
 

This book discusses various components of the innate and adaptive immune response in combating viral infections, presenting the recent advances in our understanding of innate immunity recognition of viruses and highlighting the important role of inflammation, cytokines such as interferon, toll-like receptors and leukocytes in the initial detection of invading viruses and subsequent activation of adaptive immunity.
It also summarizes the role of the adaptive immunity against viral infections through clearance of virus and establishment of memory response that protects against the recurrent infections. In addition, the book examines the role of DNA and RNA sensors in viral recognition and in controlling viral infection.
Lastly, it reviews the latest developments in the development of the rational viral vaccines. As such it is a useful resource book for postgraduate and early researchers wanting to gain insights into the immune response to viral infections.
