Abstract

In this paper the deformation state of a circular and isotropic plate is analyzed, using as methods of comparison the analytical, the finite element and the experimental element methods. In the finite element method, the plate is analyzed by several programmes, as well as assembled with the respective container.

Abstract

With the growth of the aging population worldwide, osteoporosis represents a serious health problem, which implies higher morbidity and costs, despite the continuous advances in treatment options. It involves both sexes, although menopausal women are mainly affected. This article is a brief review of literature on current osteoporosis treatment options.

Abstract

Morphological variability of paranasal sinuses is well known for endoscopic surgeons and anatomists alike. The ethmoid sinus is the most complex and variable of all paranasal sinuses, due to the fact that its development is not yet well known and is influenced by many factors. Volumetric studies of the sinuses have been made using dried skulls, cadaver heads and imaging studies, but there are still not sufficient data in order to name a standard value for each sinus. Few data can be found especially regarding the ethmoid sinus. In this paper, we measured the volumes of ethmoid lateral masses, and for anterior and posterior groups of cells, using imaging studies and a volumetric feature of our imaging studies. Results showed an average volume between 7.34 cm3 and 8.39 cm3 for the ethmoid lateral mass, between 4.33 cm3 and 4.92 cm3 for the anterior ethmoid and between 3.01 cm3 and 3.47 cm3 for the posterior ethmoid groups. We also found that the average volume of the anterior ethmoid occupies between 58-59% of the whole volume, while the posterior ethmoid occupies only 41-42% of this volume.
