(11) The high incidence of infant astigmatism has implications for critical periods in human visual development and for infant acuity.
(12) In all, 207 cases of liver cancer were seen during this period, giving an incidence of rupture of 14.5%.
(13) Serial observations of blood pressure after unilateral adrenalectomy for aldosterone-producing adenoma revealed an incidence of hypotension (systolic BP less than fifth percentile for age- and sex-matched normal population) of 27% at 2 years, more than 5 times that predicted.
(14) He also deals with the incidence, conservative and surgical treatment of osteo-arthrosis in old age and with the possibilities of its prevention.
(15) We have not had another incidence of fetal scalp infection associated with intrapartum monitoring.
(16) The most important conclusion of both conferences was that oestrogen substitution can significantly reduce the incidence of fractures in postmenopausal women.
(17) We investigated the incidence of skin cancer among patients who received high doses of PUVA to see whether such incidence increased.
(18) In addition, recent increase of the annual incidence of the above both groups was clarified.
(19) We found that, although controlled release delivery of ddC inhibited de novo FeLV-FAIDS replication and delayed onset of viremia when therapy was discontinued (after 3 weeks), an equivalent incidence and level of viremia were established rapidly in both ddC-treated and control cats.
(20) We studied the effect of low-dose intrathecal morphine (0.00-0.20 mg) on pain relief and the incidence of side effects after cholecystectomy in 139 patients divided into eight groups according to intrathecal morphine dose: groups 1 (0.00 mg), 2 (0.04 mg), 3 (0.06 mg), 4 (0.08 mg), 5 (0.10 mg), 6 (0.12 mg), 7 (0.15 mg), and 8 (0.20 mg).
(n.) The act or quality of being instant or pressing; urgency; solicitation; application; suggestion; motion.
(n.) That which is instant or urgent; motive.
(n.) Occasion; order of occurrence.
(n.) That which offers itself or is offered as an illustrative case; something cited in proof or exemplification; a case occurring; an example.
(n.) A token; a sign; a symptom or indication.
(v. t.) To mention as a case or example; to refer to; to cite; as, to instance a fact.
(v. i.) To give an example.
(1) Would people feel differently about it if, for instance, it happened on Boxing Day or Christmas Eve?
(2) In both instances the permeation rates of proteins can be better correlated to hydrodynamic radii than to molecular weights.
(3) In three instances SAA levels increased during hospitalization while CRP levels did not.
(4) A 6.4 kilobase C4B-5'-specific Taq I fragment usually provided a reliable guide to the presence of a C4A deletion but unusually in one instance this fragment was found to be a marker of a functioning C4A gene.
(5) "Runners, for instance, need a high level of running economy, which comes from skill acquisition and putting in the miles," says Scrivener, "But they could effectively ease off the long runs and reduce the overall mileage by introducing Tabata training.
(6) Both hypodontia and hyperdontia are found in a number of well-defined genetic syndromes and in most instances are common characteristics of the disease.
(7) The opportunities for infection are often strong in areas of high population within a city – schools, for instance.
(8) Of these, 12 had radiation-induced neurologic complications which, in 5 instances, consisted of persisting, wholly or partially disabling paresis in the lower limbs.
(9) The decision of the editors to solicit a review for the Medical Progress series of this journal devoted to current concepts of the renal handling of salt and water is sound in that this important topic in kidney physiology has recently been the object of a number of new, exciting and, in some instances, quite unexpected insights into the mechanisms governing sodium excretion.
(10) We firmly believe that a systematic approach to the 12-lead ECG can provide information that can diagnose the difference between ventricular and supraventricular tachycardia, and in many instances diagnose the mechanism and site of origin of the supraventricular tachycardia.
(11) Other less common indications are some instances of aspiration pneumonia, septicemias due to B. fragilis, and actinomycoses.
(12) Tension in flexor tendons during wrist flexion may play a role in otherwise unexplained instances of the carpal tunnel syndrome.
(13) But most instances are more mundane: the majority of fraud cases in recent years have emerged from scientists either falsifying images – deliberately mislabelling scans and micrographs – or fabricating or altering their recorded data.
(14) The right side of the ventricular septum was affected in five instances.
(15) Women on the beat: how to get more female police officers around the world Read more Mortars were, for instance, used on 5 June when Afghan national army soldiers accidentally hit a wedding party on the outskirts of Ghazni, killing eight children.
(16) Our own experiences have shown that patients involved in studies with well designed protocols are better controlled and in most instances also better treated than patients treated outside such protocols.
(17) No instances of osteoradionecrosis occurred as a result of dental extraction with this conservative method.
(18) Therefore these suggested methods of choice may not in every instance be the most accurate of all indicators of nutritional status for a particular nutrient.
(19) The advantage of this in vivo method is the possibility to determine the thyroidal activity at various times after 131I-application (2 phase test) and by repeated 131I-applications under different conditions (diet, age, for instance).
(20) In each instance, dexamethasone was given at midnight and the plasma ACTH concentration was determined at 9:00 a.m. on the day before and after administration of the dexamethasone.
