Abstract

Aims: evaluate survival rate of dental implants. Determine correlations between bonedensity and stability. Determine which intervention to dental implant that increasestability.Materials and methods: Retrospective study of patients receiving implants in dentalimplant unit in educational hospital of collage of dentistry /Baghdad Universityduring period October 2012- October 2015. Individual data meta-analysis ofimplants stability using different interventions, which Are bone morphogeneticproteins, immediate dental implant, Ridge splitting, simvastatin drug, Platelet-Rich Plasma, Piezosurgery and control group.Results: survival rate was 98.33%. Implant length and posterior location statisticallysignificant effect on achieving high stability in control group. Posterior locationstatistically significant increase primary stability. After 2 months of surgerycomparing interventions and control group show simvastatin(P<0.001) increasestability and among variables diameter, length and mandibular locationstatistically significant increase stability. After 3 month simvastatin(P<0.001) andBone morphogenetic proteins(P=0.005) increase stability and mandibular location,length and diameter increase stability. After 4 months Piezosurgery statisticallysignificant lowering stability (P=0.004), and diameter statistically significantincrease stability.Conclusions: High survival rate achieved. No significant effect of variables onfailure rate of implants. Simvastatin and Bone morphogenetic proteins reducehealing time and improve stability but Piezosurgery lowering stability comperedto control. Posterior location affected primary stability but length and diameterincrease secondary stability. Bone density had no effect on primary and secondarystability.

Abstract

Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disorder, which affects genetically predisposed individuals upon the ingestion of gluten. So, it is the result of both environmental (gluten) and genetic factors (carriers of HLA-DQ2 and DQ8 haplotypes). A duodenal biopsy with positive serology is the gold standard for the diagnosis of CD. Celiac disease world geographical distribution seems to have followed the spread of wheat consumption in addition to the migratory flows of mankind. Following the application of simple serological tests for the diagnosis of CD in the 1980s, it gradually became clear that the prevalence of CD in different countries in the Middle East, North Africa and India is almost the same as that in Western countries. A high index of suspicion for CD should be maintained in all developing countries for patients who present with chronic diarrhea or iron deficiency anemia. The prevalence of CD varies with sex, age, and geographic location. The global prevalence of CD has increased over time from 0.6% in 1991 to 2000 to 0.8% between 2001 and 2016. According to that, there is a need for population-based prevalence studies in many developing countries especially middle east to estimate the burden of CD properly.Keywords:Celiac disease, gluten, HLA, prevalence, meta-analysis, Middle East, developing countries.
