(3) For pairwise comparisons within this family, estimates of sequence divergence ranged from 0% (E. hemionus onager vs. E. h. kulan) to 7.8% (E. przewalskii vs. E. h. onager).
(4) Chromosome fusion is apparently involved in the alterations of the karyotype of E. hemionus kulan (2n = 55, 54) when compared to the karyotype of the onager, E. hemionus onager (2n = 56).
(5) This polymorphism involves the same elements that participate in the polymorphic Robertsonian rearrangement producing diploid numbers of 54-56 in E. hemionus kulan and E. hemionus onager.
(6) The present study investigated amino acid transport mechanisms in red cells from four wild species: Przewalski's horse (Equus przewalskii), Hartmann's zebra (Zebra hartmannae), Grevy's zebra (Zebra grevyi), and onager (Equus hemonius).
(v. t.) An instrument for throwing stones or other missiles, consisting of a short strap with two strings fastened to its ends, or with a string fastened to one end and a light stick to the other. The missile being lodged in a hole in the strap, the ends of the string are taken in the hand, and the whole whirled rapidly round until, by loosing one end, the missile is let fly with centrifugal force.
(v. t.) The act or motion of hurling as with a sling; a throw; figuratively, a stroke.
(v. t.) A contrivance for sustaining anything by suspension
(v. t.) A kind of hanging bandage put around the neck, in which a wounded arm or hand is supported.
(v. t.) A loop of rope, or a rope or chain with hooks, for suspending a barrel, bale, or other heavy object, in hoisting or lowering.
(v. t.) A strap attached to a firearm, for suspending it from the shoulder.
(v. t.) A band of rope or iron for securing a yard to a mast; -- chiefly in the plural.
(v. t.) To throw with a sling.
(v. t.) To throw; to hurl; to cast.
(v. t.) To hang so as to swing; as, to sling a pack.
(v. t.) To pass a rope round, as a cask, gun, etc., preparatory to attaching a hoisting or lowering tackle.
(n.) A drink composed of spirit (usually gin) and water sweetened.
(1) This sling was constructed bu freeing the insertion of the pubococcygeus and the ileococcygeus muscles from the coccyx.
(2) The sphincter urethrae muscle is located inside the sling of the puborectalis muscle in both sexes, but no muscle fibres connect them to one another.
(3) The Z-plasties facilitate effective dissection and redirection of the palatal muscles to produce an overlapping muscle sling and lengthen the velum without using tissue from the hard palate, which permits hard palate closure without pushback or lateral relaxing incisions.
(4) The use of the technique of wax-plate serial section-reconstruction, based on contiguous axial plane CT images of the upper thorax, to prepare a replica of the central air-way (trachea and major bronchi) of an infant with sling left pulmonary artery type 2B, with bridging bronchus, abortive right main bronchus, and tracheal stenosis due to absence of the tracheal pars membranacea with "ring" tracheal cartilages is described.
(5) 13 patients were treated by classical techniques of insertion-suspensions of the paralyzed side with a perioral loop and slings of PTFE suspended to the zygomatic arch and the infraorbital rim, by way of nasolabial angle or rhytidectomy incisions.
(6) The glenohumeral joint is stabilised superiorly by a posterior superior sling consisting of the long biceps tendon, the superior joint capsule, and the coracoacromial and coracohumeral ligaments.
(7) Of these patients 13 had undergone a pubovaginal sling procedure, 3 of whom had refractory symptoms, including urge incontinence, which resulted in augmentation cystoplasty in 2 and supravesical urinary diversion in 1.
(8) A method is described that overcomes the problem of flap detachment during the early postoperative period by suspending and supporting the tongue pedicle with a palatal sling.
(9) In 21 patients, fractures were treated with a sling for 1 week, and in 21 with a hanging cast for 1 week.
(10) It was transplanted ventral to the puborectalis sling into the anal dimple if present.
(11) The plastic slings of the Zoedler type led to an increased risk of complications such as retropubic infections, rejection of the mersilene, and chronic urinary retention.
(12) The fascia lata sling procedure has been used over the past 22 years in our unit for treating recurrent urinary stress incontinence when irreparably poor local support tissues were suspected.
(13) Hemorrhage of 14 ml.kg-1.5 min-1 was done in two groups of chronically prepared, splenectomized Yorkshire pigs that were conditioned behaviorally to lie in a Panepinto sling.
(14) Simultaneously it is used extraorbitally as a sling to raise the ptotic upper eyelid.
(15) This is the first such case, to our knowledge, without vascular sling.
(16) The pulmonary artery sling was diagnosed by angiography.
(17) This dramatic developmental abnormality was accompanied by delayed fusion of the septum, and a reduction in the population of subventricular cells that normally migrate to form a sling of cells extending from the medial aspect of the lateral ventricles to the midline.
(18) An unusually small adult corpus callosum occurs because fetal axons are able to follow unusual pathways and actively compensate for absence of the sling, not because of arrested midline development.
(19) In 7 patients, an eyelid suspension was performed with PTFE by Arion's technique, but by replacing the classical silicon thread by E-PTFE and transposing the medial part of the temporalis muscle on the external canthus, and fixing the lateral end of the sling to the muscle.
(20) The incidence of previous bladder neck surgery in this group was over 50%, with 11 previous vaginal repairs, one Burch colposuspension, and one Aldridge sling procedure.
