(9) Leaf growth will slow with encroaching cold and decreasing light, but chard will generally manage to keep producing some harvest when fresh greens are sparse.
(10) The decrease in synaptic contact length along the proximal parts of terminal branches, in which this occurs, is mostly due to a decrease in the length of close opposition (less than 0.2 micron) between the nerve terminal membrane and the postsynaptic membrane: the decrease in more distal parts of branches is due to the progressive encroachment of Schwann cell processes between the presynaptic and postsynaptic membranes as well as a decrease in synaptic contact length.
(11) These narrow the posterior portion of the spinal canal and encroach on the lateral recesses.
(12) All three types eventually fail due to thrombosis, either because of their inherent thrombogenicity or because of encroachment of tissue (intimal hyperplasia) (IH) into the lumen of the graft at the point where the natural and prosthetic vessel join.
(13) Angiography also aided in differentiating hard central osteophytic from soft tissue encroachment on the spinal cord caused by herniation of a disc or thickening of the posterior longitudinal ligament.
(14) In the past, he explains, 'encroachers' failed to respect the park's boundaries, sneaking into the forest to gather firewood and fell trees for timber.
(15) Similarly anastomotic methods which encroach on the ileal circumference by creating an inverted edge can be expected to reduce resultant capacity by 10 per cent or more.
(16) Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mediastinal tumor mass that almost totally compressed the right main pulmonary artery and also encroached upon the left pulmonary artery.
(17) This procedure decreases the likelihood of dorsal necrosis over the middle phalanx, since the dorsal neurovascular bundle is not encroached upon.
(18) Seminiferous tubules had decreased tubule diameters, hyalinized tubule walls, and occluded lumina owing either to epithelial encroachment or cellular debris and exfoliated round germ cells.
(19) This most often occurs at the site of atherosclerotic plaques encroaching on the lumen to a variable extent.
(20) Third, a hemoglobin or hematocrit within the normal range constitutes a natural buffer against encroachments upon the oxygen supply from non-Hb causes.

(n.) The incoming or first attack of anything hurtful or pernicious; as, the invasion of a disease.
(1) By presenting the case history of a man who successively developed facial and trigeminal neural dysfunction after Mohs chemosurgery of a PCSCC, this paper documents histologically the occurrence of such neural invasion, and illustrates the utility of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance scanning in patient management.
(2) This study compared the non-invasive vascular profiles, coagulation tests, and rheological profiles of 46 consecutive cases of low-tension glaucoma with 69 similarly unselected cases of high-tension glaucoma and 47 age-matched controls.
(3) Implantation of the mouse embryo involves the invasion of the secondary trophoblast giant cells of the ectoplacental cone (EPC) into the uterine decidua.
(4) We have used a modification of the rotating-frame imaging technique to measure PCr-to-ATP ratio non-invasively in human heart.
(5) Thirty had an in situ tumor (mean age: 30 years) and 34 had an invasive adenocarcinoma (mean age: 45 years), 7 of whom died of their cancer.
(6) This case is unusual in that it demonstrated no malignant epithelium beyond that of a borderline tumor, but met the criteria of malignancy because of its invasiveness and metastasis.
(7) In invasive epidermoid carcinoma, the accuracy with the self-collected specimens approached the physician-scraped specimens.
(8) Rifampin is recommended as a prophylactic treatment for intimate contacts of young children who develop invasive infections with Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib).
(9) It is concluded that the transcutaneous ultrasound technique provides a reliable, rapidly available, non-invasive method to confirm the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.
(10) Subsequent radiological follow-up demonstrated the rapid growth of the tumor hence exhibiting a very invasive form.
(11) The circle rate correlated with the extent of mural invasion.
(12) Minimal breast cancer should include lobular carcinoma in situ (lobular neoplasia) and ductal carcinoma in situ regardless of nodal status, and (tentatively) invasive carcinoma smaller than 1 cm in total diameter, if axillary lymph nodes are not involved.
(13) The diagnosis of meningeal cyst was confirmed in a non-invasive way by MRI showing a mass with the same signal intensities as CSF on both T1 and T2 weighted images.
(14) The carcinoma and lymphoma of the stomach were both small, and the depth of invasion was localized to the mucosa and submucosa, respectively.
(15) A transurethral prostatic resection for prostatism in a 73 year old man showed a cluster of richly capillarised clear cells originally thought to be indicative of invasive carcinoma.
(16) However, the typically deep invasion of the former tumors and their histologic features indicate that they are highly aggressive neoplasms.
(17) The presence of prostatic invasion either into the stroma or involving prostatic ducts and acini only had no adverse effect on outcome.
(18) Fifty-seven patients underwent local excision of an invasive distal rectal cancer as an initial operative procedure with curative intent.
(19) That most of the neoplasms found were adenomas and not invasive cancer may be due to the relative youth of most of those screened.
(20) At 24 weeks, 24-h mean blood pressures (MBP), measured invasively, were 121 mmHg (perindopril), 137 mmHg (captopril), 140 mmHg (hydralazine), 149 mmHg (isradipine) and 146 mmHg (metoprolol), compared to control values of 177 mmHg (SHR) and 132 mmHg (Wistar-Kyoto rats, WKY).
