Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Medical Imaging <p>Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Medical Imaging is peer-reviewed open access bi-monthly on-line journal that provides a medium of the rapid publication of original research papers, review articles, book reviews and short communications in the field of bio-medical engineering; medical imaging, analysis and processing. It encourages interdisciplinary research and development activities in an international environment.</p> Services for Science and Education, United Kingdom en-US Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Medical Imaging 2055-1266 CORRELATION BETWEEN LOCAL BONE DENSITY AND INSERTION TORQUE AS PREDICTORS OF IMMEDIATE IMPLANT LOADING. A BIBLIOGRAPHIC REVIEW <p><strong>Title: </strong>Correlation between local bone density and insertion torque as predictor of immediate implant loading. A bibliographic review.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong><strong>Background</strong>: Implants have become an alternative to rehabilitate lost teeth. One of the prerequisites for immediate loading is to determine primary stability by analyzing bone density and insertion torque.</p> <p><strong>Aims</strong>: A bibliographic review is conducted to correlate local bone density and insertion torque as predictors of the immediate loading of an implant.</p> <p><strong>Materials and methods</strong>: Review using PubMed databases of systematic reviews, meta-analyses, randomized clinical studies, non-randomized clinical studies, in vitro studies, cohort studies, cross-sectional studies, and clinical trials, either in English or in Spanish. The focus was on the correlation between local bone density and insertion torque.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>: Local bone density is a useful guide for determining insertion torque and predicting initial implant stability.</p> <p><strong>Discussion</strong>: The insertion torque and bone density values determine whether immediate loading of the implant is possible or not, and therefore predict this possibility.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong>: A correlation between local bone density and insertion torque was established, and this correlation predicts immediate loading of an implant. Therefore, to reach a consensus, further studies should consider all the factors influencing this concept.</p> Jordi Ortega-Martínez Copyright (c) 2021 Jordi Ortega-Martínez 2021-05-28 2021-05-28 8 3 1 9 10.14738/jbemi.83.10200 Comparison of Antibacterial activity and medicinal properties of ginger (Zingiber officinale) and garlic (Allium sativum) between native and international genera <p>Human societies have always a golden sign to show the noticeable spectacles of coexistence with their environments, precisely the impact of plants in every phases of their life. Several qualitative as well as quantitative approaches are taken into account to emphasize the effective integration of plants into a medical system. Therefore this experiment was designed to standardize and evaluate the health of active plant-extract and their dynamic use in healthcare system to open a new era in drug designing. In order to maintain this knowledge, plant extract of ginger and garlic from native and hybrid source were chosen (July 2018 to July 2019 from different zone of Bangladesh) in this experiment and sensitivity pattern of these extracts against two enteric disease causing organisms <em>Bacillus cereus a</em>nd&nbsp;<em>Vibrio cholerae</em> were conducted to investigate the role of these natural sources as medicinal plants. To compare the authenticity and efficacy of the plant extracts, selected strains were also challenged with conventional antibiotics. Finally, the results portrayed that the ethanoic and methanoic extract of both native garlic and ginger extracts showed more prominent sensitivity towards the gram negative organisms as compared to the foreign plants of same genera.</p> Mehnaz Karim Fahareen Binta Mosharraf Akash Ahmed Mahbubul Hasan Siddiqee Copyright (c) 2021 Mehnaz Karim, Fahareen Binta Mosharraf, Akash Ahmed, Dr. Mahbubul Hasan Siddiqee 2021-06-02 2021-06-02 8 3 10 26 10.14738/jbemi.83.10240
