(1) Thin layers of carbon (20 microns) and vacuoles (30 microns) suggested a large temperature gradient along the tissue ablation front.
(2) It has a poor prognosis prior to the current combined treatment of surgical ablation, radiation to the surgical field, and chemotherapy for microscopic metastases.
(3) Future research and clinical evaluations should focus on the components of the learning and memory processes when the ramifications of temporal lobe ablations on cognitive function are studied.
(4) In blood, ablation of porcine aorta was feasible at a distance of 3 mm.
(5) RF ablation appears to be a safe and effective therapeutic option for drug-resistant ectopic atrial tachycardia and may be the preferred first-line therapy for those patients with depressed ventricular function.
(6) Certain untoward effects associated with the use of direct-current electrical catheter ablation of the ventricular endomyocardium have been noted.
(7) SMC ablation caused an increase of aggressive reactions to combined stimulation, revealed in the form of tendency for all animals.
(8) There was no significant difference in the wound-healing rate, but at 36 hours there was a reduction in wound-healing rate of the excimer ablated corneas.
(9) Sixteen patients with an accessory pathway were studied (eight surgical ablations, eight catheter ablations with radiofrequency energy).
(10) This report details the successful catheter ablation of a left free wall accessory pathway with radiofrequency energy.
(11) The absence of this facilitative influence following otocyst ablation becomes apparent just at the time synapses would normally be formed between the the primary auditory afferents and the brain stem auditory neurons.
(12) We compared the ablative efficiency on canine colonic mucosa of the THC:YAG laser with the clinically employed cw Nd:YAG laser.
(13) Their effect of vaporizing and ablating (photodecomposing) thrombi and their thermal injuring effect on adjacent tissues were compared and assessed in order to select optimal laser with little thermal injuring and more rapid vaporizing or ablating thrombi effect for laser angioplasty.
(14) The value of serum thyroglobulin assay employing a kit manufactured by Diagnostic Products Corporation in the detection of recurrence of thyroid carcinoma in patients treated by thyroidectomy and ablative therapy was assessed by clinical follow-up and radioiodine scanning of 122 patients over a 2-year period.
(15) A survey is given on the method of the transvasal intracardiac ablation in the treatment of atrial and ventricular tachyarrhythmias.
(16) Only two pts had a right bundle branch block after ablation.
(17) This unique physiological situation was created by crossing IGF-I Tg mice to GH-deficient, dwarf mice in whom somatotrophs were genetically ablated by the expression of a diphtheria toxin transgene in the somatotrophs.
(18) The addition of exogenous IL-2 was found to ablate the suppressive effects of steroids on lymphocyte blastogenesis.
(19) In this study, uninjured basal forebrain cholinergic neurons did not die after excitotoxic ablation of their target neurons in young adult rats, indicating that they are either not dependent on neurotrophic factors for survival or can obtain trophic support from other sources after target neurons are lost.
(20) The mortality of the renal ablation group was greater than that of the sham controls but not significantly different for the fish oil or the regular laboratory diet groups.
(n.) The act of amputating; esp. the operation of cutting off a limb or projecting part of the body.
(1) Even so, amputation of fifteen extremities and four other major excisions were required in twelve patients.
(2) The results suggest that RPE cannot be used reliably as a surrogate for direct pulse measurement in exercise training of persons with acute dysvascular amputations.
(3) Diabetic retinopathy (an index of microangiopathy) and absence of peripheral pulses, amputation, or history of myocardial infarction, stroke, or transient ischemic attacks (as evidence of macroangiopathy) caused surprisingly little increase in relative risk for cardiovascular death.
(4) Staplers were used and therefore the choice between resection or amputation was determined by the degree of loco-regional infiltration of the neoplasm.
(5) Between the 3rd and 4th week following amputation, the first fully differentiated striated muscle cells appear, and in the 6th week myogenic differentiation extends throughout the regenerate.
(6) Cooling of the necrotic limb with the application of a tourniquet and general nonoperative treatment were conducted in preparation for amputation.
(7) Twenty-three cases were reviewed with an ultimate amputation rate of 61% (22% primary, 39% delayed).
(8) In the group of 25 patients with critical ischaemia there were three operative deaths and in 10 the graft subsequently occluded, precipitating an amputation.
(9) Of these, twenty-five were selected for hemipelvectomy and thirty-two, for non-amputative procedures.
(10) Blastemas implanted with 2 dorsal root ganglia and simultaneously denervated 14 days after amputation exhibited control levels of cell cycle activity 6 days later, as measured by 3H-thymidine pulse labeling.
(11) Early biopsy of suspicious lesions followed by amputation of the digit in those proving positive is the treatment of choice.
(12) Twenty-three unique causal pathways to diabetic limb amputation were identified.
(13) The synthesis of flagellar proteins after deflagellation is defective only in gametic cells; vegetative cells of these mutants are capable of flagellar protein synthesis after flagellar amputation.
(14) The prognosis after interscapulothoracic amputation depends upon the primary malignant disease.
(15) During a 10-year period 104 patients (mean age 72 years) had 106 through-knee amputations.
(16) The other metastasis was removed by amputation 4 years prior to the nephrectomy.
(17) Acute ischaemia of the lower leg caused by arterial thrombosis often leads to amputation.
(18) The anatomical relationships of the terminal branch of posterior interosseous nerve have been studied in 57 cadaver and amputation specimens.
(19) Patients with all three risk factors should be considered for early amputation.
(20) Two patients are described: one with prosthetization in 1982 with aorta prosthesis because of aortic valvular defect and a female patient with lupus eythematodes disseminata and severe organ disorders resulting from that (cardiac, renal, amputation of the left arm).
