Presence of periodontopathic bacteria in coronary arteries from patients with chronic periodontitis


Department of Stomatology, University of São Paulo, SP, Brazil.


In this study the presence of periodontopathic pathogens in atheromatous plaques removed from coronary arteries of patients with chronic periodontitis and periodontally healthy subjects by PCR was detected. Our results indicate a significant association between the presence of Porphyromonas gingivalis and atheromas, and the periodontal bacteria in oral biofilm may find a way to reach arteries.
