(20) Flow cytofluorometric analysis of the strain distribution of the molecules defined by the mAb revealed that two of the antibodies (I-22 and III-5) were directed against nonpolymorphic determinants of Thy-1, whereas V-8 mAb reacted only with Thy-1.2+ lymphocytes.
(n.) A flowing out; efflux.
(v. i.) To flow out.
(1) Within the outflow tract wall, the labelled cells were enmeshed by strands of alcian blue-stained extracellular matrix.
(2) Graft life is even more prolonged with patch angioplasty at venous outflow stenoses or by adding a new segment of PTFE to bypass areas of venous stenosis.
(3) Using 3H-labeled dextran, uveoscleral outflow was quantitated in normotensive and glaucomatous Beagles under general anesthesia.
(4) Long-distanced urethrocystopexy which permits to avoid an unwanted increase of outflow resistance with following retention of urine should be preferred.
(5) Accordingly, RV systolic SL shortening did not rise despite the substantial augmentation in RV outflow.
(6) An integrated approach to the surgical management of diffuse subaortic stenosis has been designed to provide adequate relief of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction whatever the anatomical features encountered at operation.
(7) A pressure sensor in the patient line prevents excessive inflow and outflow pressures by stopping the inflow or outflow pump respectively.
(8) Catheterization shows a gradient across one or both of the outflow tracts due to hypertrophic subaortic or subpulmonic stenosis.
(9) We suggest that the OH improved mainly because of the increase in MSA due to L-threo-DOPS, and that the drug may activate sympathetic outflow at a site proximal to the sympathetic ganglion.
(10) Multiple determination of size, shape, and diameter of the left atrium were made during the control state and under conditions of varied ventricular outflow resistance in intact anesthetized dogs with markers chronically attached to the mitral annulus and the valve cusps.
(11) Type II had the anastomosis too high on the gastric pouch, type III was due to an obstructing marginal ulcer, and type IV had a pouchlike deformity develop in the upper jejunum at the anastomosis that gradually compressed the outflow tract.
