Glucose level in the aspirated cystic fluid of radicular cyst, odontogenic keratocyst and dentigerous cyst
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Shamshad Begum, Dr. Sonia Gupta and Dr. Gaurav Kataria
Cystic fluid is hyperosmolar exudates that contain various proteins, carbohydrates, and glucoconjugates. This hyperosmolarity is responsible for the cyst expansion and enlargement.
Aims and Objective: To determine the glucose contents of the cystic fluid in order to assess cellular metabolism. Materials and Method: A study was carried out on 5 cases of radicular cyst, 5 cases of odontogenic keratocyst and 5 cases of dentigerous cyst. Cystic fluid aspiration was obtained from all the three cysts for the determination of glucose level by Trinder’s method.
Results: In the present study, the mean glucose content was greater in radicular cyst followed by the odontogenic keratocyst and dentigerous cyst. The p-value was found to be stastically non-significant.
Conclusion: The lower glucose content of dentigerous cyst revealed minimum level of cellular metabolism than that of radicular cyst and odontogenic keratocyst.
